Holiday Season

We started our holiday season a few weeks ago.
We started with our traditional brunch downtown.

CD was treated to lemon cheesecake by the chef followed by a fancy chocolate platter that the chef prepared in the kitchen just for CD!!! Next time she goes back she is to ask for the chef and she'll bring out another special little treat! What a lucky kid.. but wait that's not all the luck she had ...

After brunch, we bundled up for the Santa Claus Parade.

CD entered the colouring contest and I'm pleased to announce that for the third year in a row one of my girls won a prize!!! See, what'd I tell ya, lucky kid!! She won a family pass to ...

The Festival of Trees!!

We enjoyed the afternoon admiring all the trees and gingerbread house villages. We stopped for a snack and treated the people behind us in line to gingerbread cookies. Then we donated a stuffed puppy to the zoo tree for the kids in the hospital at Christmas and toured the gift shop.

What a fantastic day!
I love spending time with these two beautiful ladies and Moto-Moto.

Happy December 1st everyone!

Let it snow, let it snow,
let it snow!!

As soon as the girls got home today they jumped in the backyard to play in ALL the snow we got! I sure would have declared it a "snow day" but those are few and far between around here. I think we've had 2 in the last 20 years!!!

Winter is here!

Family & Friends

The best part of life is when you family becomes your friends and your friends become your family.

I am so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life!
I am married to a kind, loving man.
I'm Mom of two amazing daughters.
Have one of the funniest tenderhearted cousins
(with just a pinch of mischief.)
And have made some incredible friends.

"Friends are family you can choose for yourself!"

Life is good!
