Hotel, pool, burritos, art.
Perfect weekend away from it all.

While René, Maxine and Sophie were with us last week we saw some mysterious smoke coming from the forest just north of us. It was bad enough that we called the fire department and they came rushing in with brooms and swatted the thing out. We're actually quite lucky that it didn't spread faster or further.
There was a special focus to Earth Day this year as it was joined with worldwide demonstrations in support of science. Since we are a family that supports science and we love a good march, we joined forces with the thousand or so people who came out in Montreal to show our support for science policy and disdain for ignorance (need we say more?)

Guy received a Distinguished Lecturer Award for his contribution to Metallurgical Sample Selection at the Canadian Institute of Mining this year, and had a few family members to help us celebrate.
Most frequent pose for reference.
Guy and his beautiful sister.
This is as close as we got to our other famous son of a Prime Minister.
That famous album cover, with the album manager in the background.

This year we celebrated Christmas over and over again... First just the four of us at home, then at Gran and Grandad's with Katherine, Olivia and Emma (slightly more hectic), and finally with Lyse, Janette and David back at our house. It was all good fun and food, and lovely winter weather.
A big girl desk
My own jammin' stereo
Dancing with the cousins
Another tasty meal
Awesome new board game
Lucy had one last work trip to Kazakhstan
We saw a big elf tree at the local greenhouse, but decided to go with a slightly smaller one
Alice gave a reading at the children's Christmas service in Morin-Heights
Estelle got a retainer... and her orthodontist's office was filled with nutcrackers!
We ate traditional chocolate tree cake
We decided to see what it felt like to live inside a tree ornament
