But, it was Christmas, and the real action took place by the Christmas Tree in the living room. The kids were getting older and the anticipation grew with them. Sean was six, going on seven, and Kate was almost one and a half.
Christmas Morning on Wilmot Street
Christmas Dinner at Grandma Etta’s
Every Christmas Grandma Etta would have us over for Christmas dinner. Grandma always put out a wonderful traditional turkey dinner with gravey, mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts, and for desert, with Rum Sauce. her wonderful Chrstmas Plum Pudding.
After dinner there were always presents. And Grandpa would dress up as Santa to hand them out. His costume was not very believable but the children loved it and fell in with it completely. For those few minutes, the magic happened, and he was Santa Claus!
The Boys build a Snowman
Soon enough the holidays are over and its back to play as usual. We still had snow so Sean and Gordon decided to build their own snowman in our front yard. I took pictures through the front window so I didn’t disturb them but it is obvious they knew I was there.
