Back to Sylvan

Well, my family survived another Christmas! We headed off to North Battleford, SK Christmas Eve (after opening presents on the 23rd!) and we enjoyed supper, and an evening of visiting, retelling the Christmas story using my aunty's nativity figures, and some carols. We spent the night chez Best Canadian Inn, had breakfast at my aunt's house again in the morning and then headed on our way back to Cold Lake. It was great to see my Grandma, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and second cousins. On a side note, one of my aunts who spent the night in North Battleford also, woke up Christmas morning to find her driverside window smashed. Merry Christmas!!! It's been a great week here in Cold Lake, and I'm sad to leave, but also anxious to get back to Sylvan and into my regular routine. I'm also concerned that my plants might be dead. At the moment, I'm sitting at the Best Western Hotel, where my Dad works...and where I can get some free wireless internet! So I'm pa…


Haven't been writing too much lately, as there just doesn't seem to be enough time. The past few weeks have been a little hectic getting things ready for our Christmas program at the church, doing Christmas shopping, dealing with losing my power steering, and waiting for J and T's baby to arrive. The baby has arrived (check out the "boys, boys, boys" link to the right), my power steering got fixed (at no charge to me), most of my presents have been purchased, and the kid's program went great. I was a little worried at the dress were running everywhere, they were constantly running to the bathroom or going to get a drink, only one preschooler sang their group song (and by singing I mean crying loudly), and only about half the kids showed up. But of course they pulled it together for the program and were on their best behaviour since their parents, grandparents etc were in the audience. Rascals. I also had to deal with a child being bulli…

Well, the video isn't too exciting, but I sure love this song!

A fabulous 80's Christmas video. What can I say, if Boy George, George Michael and Duran Duran are involved, I'm all over it!

Here's a little something to get you in the mood for the Christmas season! This one's for my Dad, since the song is by Trans Siberian Orchestra which is one of his favorite bands! I just watched "Deck the Halls" at the theatre last week, and this Christmas light craziness totally reminded me of that movie. I'm trying to figure out where this may have been filmed as it doesn't look like there is any much cooler would this be with snow everywhere? The lights would have reflected a lot more...I really pity this guy's neighbours.

Can't wait for this weekend to be over!

Never thought I'd ever hear myself say that, but I'm just trying to stick it out until next week...I'm a little tired tonight! Here's how the tail end of my week and my weekend have gone. Wednesday night T was kind enough to take me over to Staples after getting a little shopping done at Costco. I had seen a webcam on sale at Future Shop, but I really don't like shopping there, so went to Staples instead. The cam I wanted was not on sale, so I settled for a cheaper one. Took it home and ended up spending 2 hours trying to get it set shut my computer down 3 or 4 times. So on Thursday after Bible study, I drove back into Red Deer, returned it, gritted my teeth and went to Future Shop. They did have the cam I was looking for, at exactly half the price of Staples, and I was able to get it set up in about 10 minutes. On the downside, I lost my power steering on my car (again) and one of Sunday School teachers resigned because they are moving. To top the…
