Nina Dobrev may have packed up her bags at 18 years old and started on an adventure called The Vampire Diaries that propelled her to international fame, but more than ten years later she still returns home for the holidays. While her Instagram story has been filled with videos of loved ones, including her little puppy, the Dobrev's got a little something extra this year. Nina Dobrev's Toronto Christmas vacation came with a very unexpected visitor.\nHer holidays started earlier this week when the actress's parents came to visit their daughter in LA. They passed the time by visiting some holiday staples like the giant Christmas tree she shared on her Instagram.\nDobrev captioned the spirited photo, "My favourite gifts under the tree this year... 🎄♥️😘."\nView this post on Instagram My favorite gifts under the tree this year... 🎄♥️😘 A post shared by Nina Dobrev (@nina) on Dec 20, 2019 at 5:34pm PST\nShe then posted a photo of herself in the airport, in her winter gear, waiting to board her flight up North.\nnina | Instagram Story\nAfter what looked like a very comfy flight, she documented cute reunion photos with her Canadian family members, including her older brother!\nThat also meant annoying her brother with said photos, announcing that "He hates photos. Social Media. Everything. So, naturally, I made it my mission to document everything. Stay tuned."\nnina | Instagram Story\nnina | Instagram Story\nLast night though, Dobrev almost adopted an entirely new family member.\nWhile they were investigating outside the Toronto home they came across a brand new friend.\nCanada may be known for our moose, beavers, and Canadian geese, but the northern country also comes with an abundance of possums.\nOutside was one of the said possums curled up in the snow.\nnina | Instagram Story\nShe even joked about taking the possum in as her pet alongside her dog Maverick, "Has anyone had a pet possum? Should I be the first? Mavericks new sibling? Will they get along?"\nIn the end, the family decided that maybe continuing to approach the possum wasn't exactly the greatest idea.\nThough they retreated back inside, Dobrev has been keeping her promise of "documenting everything" that she teased her brother with.\nWho knows what else the Canadian family will get up to over the holidays.\nThis Christmas season marks the end of an amazing year for Dobrev. Not only did she star in the sit-com Fam, but she also put her "feud" with former co-star Paul Wesley to rest.\nThere are stories everywhere.
