Celebrating Christmas with Gord's family

Gord and I celebrated an early Christmas with his family today.  They live about 2.5 hours NE of Toronto.  Ken, Gord's son, came with us.

The festivities were held at Judy and Doug's place.  Judy is Gord's sister and is married to Doug.  They have two sons, Kyle and Jon.  Kyle lives near his parents and Jon lives in Alberta.  Kyle is married to Kerri and they have two kids, Madison and Colton.  Minnie, Gord and Judy's mom also lives nearby with her husband, Keith.  Minnie had broken her ankle on Monday evening and has a cast and is in wheelchair .. she's not happy with her lack on independence!

The meal was delicious ... turkey, potatoes, corn, buns, dressing, gravy, venison, pies and cheese.  Good job, Doug!

It was a fun time and great to see everyone!  Thanks for the hospitality, Judy and Doug!

Aw, it looks like you all had a wonderful time catching up and just enjoying each others company :)

The little kiddies are too adorable!

I can definitely sympathize with Minnie-I'm currently bedbound and relying on people to do every little thing for you is NO fun o.O
