Christmas 2011

I don’t know about you, but I had a great Christmas! The time off was much needed, I enjoyed all the family and friends we saw. And, most of all, I enjoyed being home with my man and my munchkin 🙂

A shout out to my old high school

Yesterday was the last day of school for 2012 up in Fort McMurray.  But more than just a day filled with movies, chatting about Christmas plans and basically goofing off, something else happens at Father Patrick Mercredi Community High School – On the last day of school before Christmas break, the school’s gyms come alive as most of the students are busily preparing hampers for Santa’s Anonymous. It’s a wonderful event that brings everyone together in the spirit of the season.

And it’s not just that day, oh no.  These students have been involved since September (for some of them, even earlier) doing fundraisers, food drives, public awareness, and more, all to help the less fortunate at this time of year, a time when excess is often the name of the game.

If you are looking to donate to a charity this Christmas, any charity!, I urge you to do so.  So many groups are having a hard time this year, and are way behind where they should be to help all the families who need it.  If you have already, to you I say “You’re awesome!”

And now, to lighten the mood, here’s a picture from Santa’s Anonymous 1998 (I’m the one with a big frog on my back LOL)

Cookies, delicious cookies….

You may recall, I love making sugar cookies at this time of year.  So it’s no surprise, or at least it shouldn’t be!, that I’m posting yet another picture of sugar cookies!

Earlier this year, I was perusing the Avon catalogue and saw these star cookie cutters that make a tree, and I just had to order it!  And voila, an un-icing’d tree!

(it was delicious 😉 )

Happy Birthday, Kirra :)

Yesterday, my wonderful, funny, frustrating and charming daughter turned 2 years old. I’m still not sure where the time went, wasn’t she just a tiny little bundle, cuddled up on Mum for the umpteenth snooze?

Happy Birthday, Kirra!!

Happy Canada Day!

There’s just something about a maple leaf, isn’t there? Maybe I’m biased, or maybe it’s because I’m from western Canada and we don’t have many maple trees, but I when I was out east last fall I thought the red leaves were breathtaking. And photo-worthy 🙂

Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians 🙂
