My nephew, Nethaneil ... he's 6 months old already!

Hadassah just turned 2 and is growing smarter and sweeter by the day.

Christmas with the Helders a little late but better late than never, right? Here are some pics from our time with Reuben's family in Waterdown. We surprised them by arrived around dinnertime instead of leaving Ottawa at dinnertime. Catching Dad with a big grin in a picture is a challenge ... but we did it!

On Christmas Day, we decided to go for a walk to work up an appetite for our turkey dinner. It was a cold but beautiful day.
On Saturday, we went to visit our only Veldkamp cousins in the Toronto area, this is Harrison and Brianna ... and Lawren.This is Jared and his girlfriend, Andrea. Andrea has a daughter named Serena whose 15 months old. She's really sweet. We bought her this book for Christmas and she seemed to really like it. Our traditional meat fondue before we open gifts .... mmmm...
