|Sheldon and Alana arrived in Steveston to pick up Poppa and Grandma. Thursday night is a X-mas dinner at Grandmas with family members, Auntie Kendra/Uncle Dan and Owen - yes I didn't believe it either, but the pictures actually show Uncle Dan at a family function (there must have been free beer),Uncle Ted/Auntie Dennis, Theo and Jacob, Uncle Ty, Brandon and Courtney. For some unknown reason, gifts were exchanged and then opened. Jacob the future movie director was plotting to capture the evening. Being together with family and friends, set the positive tone for a long anticipated trip. Ps- after looking at the pictures, Not only was Dan there, but apparently the Papucs have a new hamster for a pet. Ps- Sheldon lost his new OILER windbreaker he was taking on the trip. Stress level just went up expectantly. If you felt a shake in the earth it was just the world stopping for Sheldon's crisis.
