12.25.10 :: due date


In the middle of the night, Santa visited our house.


When the boys woke up, I was summoned to their room to come see what they found.


They had a field day opening some gifts.


Sean kept saying "I totally asked Santa for this!"


Even Quentin was in holiday spirits today!


Merry Christmas to you & yours!


(That's a yawn. No crying was involved in the making of these photos. I just love his wrinkly face when he yawns).


Tonight we (as a family) watched the movie Shrek Ever After (VERY cute and definitely a tear jerker - glad I didn't watch it while pregnant & hormonal), and we ordered in Chinese Food. (What else are Jews supposed to do on Christmas?) The original place we wanted to order from wasn't answering their phones. Either they aren't open today or they were so busy in restaurant they didn't answer their phones. We ended up ordering from somewhere else and it took about an hour to get our food. (Normal for Christmas Day). (On a side note to those wondering - we do celebrate Xmas. Jamie's step-family is not Jewish and every other year Xmas is in Toronto (rather Mississauga) at Jamie's step-brother's house. This year, we weren't going to go down to Toronto with a newborn, so we stayed home. Next year, Xmas will be in Montreal (at Jamie's step-sister's house). So we do celebrate Jewish Holidays and Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, etc... with Jamie's step-family).

Today was my due date with Quentin. I can't imagine still being pregnant. (And I'm quite glad that I am not still pregnant, I'm starting to feel like my old self again). I can't believe he's already 25 days old.

Today's Link Love:
- Love these snowman cookies.
- Love this piece of art (picture frame).
- Saw this cake server (or rather one that looks just like this one) and now I totally want one. There's a store that sells them near (kinda) me... debating going back to get one.

You all looked like you had a nice, relaxing day. I think Quentin is beginning to look like Mack. He definitely looks like he is gaining weight...keep the great work up! :)

Just like we have done for the past 5 years, we also ordered chinese food as our Christmas supper! ;)

I wondered last year and then again this year. Do you put the presents in front of the door because you usually don't have a tree? Or is there a special reason you do this? I haven't seen anyone else do it this way so I was curious.

Quentin sure does have bags under his eyes. Boy needs some sleep. :) I bet the same could be said for you too.

Happy Christmas to all of you!!

We watched Shrek Ever After last night too!! Oh dear. I love Shrek. And Quentin looks like Mack's twin in those pics. :) Looks like the boys had a lovely Christmas morning.

Merry Christmas! It's so fun when they're little. Mine are older now, and it's still fun, of course, but different.

Sounds like you had a nice relaxing day! Ours was pretty relaxing too as it was only me, my mom, my brother and sister-in-law. My other brother and his family stayed in Halifax.
