Spring (Nanny) gave Joshua a beautiful Cross

Thomas gave money generously

Matthew and Lisa and family gave this excellent Catholic book to Joshua.

A biblical waterbottle from Kathryn and Chris along with a script ring which contained a verse from the bible.

The gifts from my sister Pauline (and family) and my parents were sent down and opened at a later time since they could not make the trip down. That is why the background is different.

From Great Grandparents-always a nice wrapping

In Nov it was another quiet time with the kids

December saw a few surprises as Rodney Etienne proposed to Kathryn. Look at Their faces, more importantly, look at how Joshua is smiling. I don't think Katryna understands what is going on...

2015 finishes off with a Christmas Party at Le Chateau, hosted by Rita & John Tassé, Kathryn's grandparents.
