Merry Christmas from the Stewarts!

Merry Christmas from the Stewarts!

This weekend, we spent a wonderful morning with our circle of friends friends visiting Halton District’s Christmas Town. While it was quite pricey ($80 for our family of 5), the company made the trip more than worthwhile, and the money all goes to a good cause (Halton Conservation works to protect the watershed and provides wildlife education at schools).
 
We were a wee bit leary about how the kids would handle the 45 minute drive up to Mountsberg, but it was a breeze. We left just when the twins were due for their nap, and with a full belly and clean pants, they slept the whole ride. Bridget kept up a lovely “stream of conciousness” conversation with us during the journey, and it made the trip pass more quickly. After we arrived at the main Conservation House and checked in, we did some fun Christmas colouring in prep for our “two-horse open sleigh ride” off to Santa’s Workshop. It was a gorgeous day, and we had a great time singing Christmas carols and looking for flying reindeer “in training” on the trip out through the conservation lands. Looking at these pictures, I’m not sure how Daddy ended up with all the kids, and I with the camera, but I somehow think I might have had the better deal, eh?
