December 26th Photo - Boxing Day

Christmas lasted three days for us. Christmas Eve at my sister-in-laws, Christmas dinner at the In-laws and Boxing Day at our place with my folks. We're very lucky as our whole family spent this special time of year together.

December 19th Photo

My family and I picked up some old movies for the weekend and Emily picked out Apollo 13. She is crazy about Tom Hanks and thinks he is the best actor ever. I really enjoyed the movie. It was full of suspense and the fact that it is a true story, it made it even more entertaining. Definitely worth watching!

December 15th Photo

A while back, my friend Carrie published this great post on her blog, Pay it Forward. If you happened to be the first few lucky people to respond she would create something special for us. I was one of the lucky ones to respond and this is what she made for me. Isn't it beautiful?! I have it hanging in my kitchen window. I just love it! The deal was that if you responded, you had to post it on your blog as well. I did and will be making two gifts for two of my friends. Thanks Carrie! I love my paper wreath!

Noember 21st Photo - The Traditional Cowboy Hat

Here's a photo of Diane's cowboy hat. Each retreat it gets passed around and when the buzzer rings, whoever is holding it wins a prize. Each time it is passed, we have to add an embellishment. At the end of the retreat, Diane has a fun souvenir to take home with her.

November 18th Photo - Certificate

Emily got her babysitting certificate and is LOVING her new job. She's already had several jobs with some of the local neighbours. She was so ambitious, she went to several houses and dropped off her certificate and a little advertisement that she made up on the computer offering her services.
