Owen and Sherri arrived last night for a weekend visit. This morning Owen showed me his Advent Calendar.  It is from Lego and each day he gets to build another Lego toy. Here he lines up the ones he has built so far.

Owen woke me up at 5 a.m. and crawled into bed with us for a few snuggles then he convinced Oma to help him do "construction" in his bedroom. This is what they built, a new room full of decorations and hanging walls.

It will be a busy weekend full of fun and later a trip to town to watch the Santa Claus parade.

Watch for more pictures as the weekend progresses.


  1. If Owen likes puppies, check this out at the West Wind Gallery & Gifts in Bancroft, ON. "Be sure to drop in to see our great selection of items, and enjoy some puppy cuddles from the little helper we'll have with us this afternoon."

  2. Hi Lori;

    He would like some "puppy cuddles" but Owen fell asleep on the couch and so we will have to miss the parade this year. It would have been fun to see the little helper. Owen loves little animals.
