Weekend news and photos



We had a restful weekend. Friday saw us out for Den's work dinner/Christmas get-together. The entree of stuffed mushrooms were to die for! Sadly the photo of Den and I not so good...but okay if I kept it small. Just like us I guess! Saturday it rained all day and I don't think Katie and I got out of our jammies! Sunday we were off - a bike ride. I was very proud of myself hauling Katie in her trailer with her bike attached to the trailer. What a convoy! I have so much fun taking photos and if you would like to see more

We came home and thanks to Leah and her recommended Christmas carol downloads from her blog, we had a wonderful time playing lots of carols on the computer. Thanks Leah! It truly does help one to get in the spirit of the season. Even Hugh must have subconsciously picked up on it as next he appeared in the doorway as Rudolf! Den could not get enough of this version of "Have yourself a Merry little Christmas" and would love to now get back into music - can I forsee some sing-a-longs in the future? I would have to say though that the highlight for me was Judy Garlands "Have yourself a Merry little Christmas" - now I am desperate to see "Meet me in St Louie" again! - if only video shops would stock some of the Golden Years of Hollywood stuff. My Mum bought me up on them and I just adore these films. Well.....off in search of some more Judy. Have a great week everyone!

That is a cute shot of 'Helen and Den'... nice to see the two of you together. Of course, I can't remember the last time Boyd and I were in the same photo.

Love the photo of Hugh in his reindeer antlers. So cute!!

But... what kind of tree is that in your pics with the big peeled areas? I've never seen anything like that before.
Curious,
