We were lucky to have a full house for our first Christmas in the new digs. Dave and Janette travelled west from Fredericton, and Lyse and René travelled east from St-Pierre. It was a great time, spent mostly hanging out at home, playing games, eating food and chatting. Oh and there were gifts too...
Estelle proudly (and happily?) displays the gift she made for Lucy and Guy
Guy reading the autobiography Alice wrote on her own at school. Very touching.
Merci Sol. Dommage que tu ne puisses pas être avec nous.
Cotton candy hat made by Lyse. Purse made by Sol.
Guy showing his Potter-esques excitement at his gift - a welding kit!
This year we constructed an advent calender from scratch for a needy family (all they need is hockey chauffeurs). Dad did all the drilling and Mon did all the decorating. For more details please follow the link below:
Alice joined the guiding movement back in September, but only just received her uniform and was officially enrolled. There's our little Spark-plug looking happy with her extreme ponytail and giant smile. As activities go, it's pretty low-key - no tournaments, no equipment to haul around, no rowdy boys!! (kidding about that last one) Actually, it's a little like attending a birthday party once a week.
