christmas 2010: photo essay.

...twas the night before Christmas, and Scott and I were up until past 1am putting the darn tree up and getting the presents out from hiding.
Needless to say, it was a lot easier getting the dolly versions of Cameron and Max to bed than it was the real versions.
Only child safe ornaments this year - all the breakable decorations have been wrapped in tissue for another decade.
One of the first things Cameron did on Christmas morning was put up the decoration her Nana got her.
Max was not sure what to think about the whole thing.  After jamming his hands inside the tree, he went back upstairs for a while.  When he came downstairs he opened some presents and seemed to dig his musical Elmo book.
Cameron was feeling generous, and she gave me a soo-soo kiss.
Max waiting patiently while Cam plays with the favourite gift of the day - his Glo Doodle.
Max in his favourite position, sitting behind Bumpa on the couch.  Bumpa is super patient and always lets Max do this.
Uncle Chris got a pile of books.  I dare say he has enough reading material to get him through until next Christmas.
Scott and his mom opening her stocking.  
Max in the thick of things with Bumpa and Nana.
I'm not sure I see a resemblance...
Scott threatening Chris with his Mangrate brush while Cam serves tea.
Chris took this photo of me taste testing the mashed potatoes with his iphone. 
And finally dinner was served...
After it was all said and done, Cam thought her Cam and Max dolls should also be fed.
A wonderful day - happy, relaxed and we didn't end up ordering pizza.  More to come on my new camera loot - I was completely spoiled!!
