We are so exited about spending our first Christmas in our new home! I was so excited about decorating my mantel this year. I know it sounds funny, but I have always dreamed about having a mantel and hanging stockings from it at Christmas time. Although it took a little tweeking, it looks great!
A few weekends ago,we went to my aunts cottage on Howe Island to cut down our Christmas tree this year. It was a VERY wet adventure
but we found what we thought was "the one" to take home. When we arrived home, we almost could not get the tree in the house...yikes!!! It's a little on the "plump" side! After a bit of a struggle its in and decorated.
The season has been busy with Christmas concerts and Christmas Sharing at the school, house parties with friends and family, my little nephews 1st birthday and Shelyn's 10th birthday! Yes... I said 10! I'm having a hard time swallowing that as well. Where oh where did this 10 year old come from? Shelyn is so excited to be a "tween" on Christmas eve. She is still our sweet little , kind hearted girl who still has a great passion for all things with fur! Shea likes to make almost weekly trips to the Humane Society to walk the dogs, pet the cats and talk with the other creatures. This year for her birthday she asked all of her friends to bring a donation for the Humane Society. Her Friends were very generous and Shelyn was able to donated a large variety of treats , toys and food to the shelter. Shelyn has taken a break from riding this winter and is enjoying her hockey in Stirling. She has become friends with a few girls her age and loving the game.
Carson has been a busy little man with his hockey career this season. Rep hockey takes you to many different towns meeting many different people along the way. We had the pleasure of taking part in a hockey tourney in late November in Haliburton On. What a beautiful area! Carson's team won the C championships.
Carson has got two goals and many assists this season. He is really a hard working little player. He does not let his size hold him back from getting into the corners and struggling for that puck! We are so proud of his determination and love for the sport. Next week we are heading to Hespler ON(near Kitchener ) for a four day tournament. ROLL BLUES ROLL!!!
Rene and I are both well. Although we both love the Christmas season, we are looking forward to January when we can possibly get a weekend away just the two of us for some much needed R&R.
Rene is growing hair.. yes.. hair... for a new assignment at work. He has not had hair on his head for over 15 years. It's kind of funny to roll over and see a man beside me with hair!!LOL
That's all for me!
Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and the very best in the New Year!
