Amber and Josh

Amber came by for a visit today.  She brought her boyfriend Josh who is actually known to us. Wenda taught Josh in grade 2. They showed us their 'promise' ring. They seemed quite happy together. In spite of her time off in hospital she has managed to keep good grades in her first term at college.

Christmas Pictures 2012

Wenda and I arrived with our grandson Anton to Tracy's home about 7am in order to get settled before the kids came down the stairs. The kids were great. This was Lilly's first time to really get into it. She was so amazed to see all the presents that had magically appeared under the tree overnight. It sure did not take her long for Lilly to get the hang of opening up presents.
 In preparing these pics tonight, I was struck by how much older Aiden is looking - childhood is such a fleeting state ... for most people !

Funny Hats

It's 11am and we are still opening gifts. The girls got these cute winter hats. Lexy's hat has sequins all over.

Lilly's Christmas

It's the first year for Lilly to open presents. Her eyes were as big as saucers when she came downstairs first thing this morning.

Merry Christmas 2012

It has been an amazing year. We managed to survive the 6 months of house shaking due to the construction of a 'No Frills' store just behind us, Plenty of good times with 'our friends'. I've managed to drop some serious weight, and our grandkids are just amazing.  Life is good and we look forward to a great year in 2013. We wish you and your family all the best for the holiday season.

Now I wonder if I can get through this holiday season without packin on the pounds!

Miss Troublemaker

Its hard to keep Miss Lilly out of the kitchen drawers. Everything gets dumped on the floor and rubber bands on the knobs that were supposed to keep her out of the drawers, just become musical instruments for strumming.

A Strainer for a Hat

Lilly gets into everything. This morning she went into the cupboard, pulled out the collapsible strainer and pulls it over her head. She is so funny sometimes.

Quinten's Goal


Quinten scored his first goal this year while we were away at Aiden's hockey tournament in Detroit. This time, I was there and ready with my camera to capture his goal. When Aiden was up against Newcastle, Aiden's team always had a difficult time trying to win against Newcastle. This time, Quin scored the winning goal as they won 4 to 3.
