The Christmas Season is Upon Us!

A snowfall that sent us home from work/school half a day early, 4 1/2 dozen mincemeat tarts in the oven, and my Christmas village and Nativity Set all up on display.

YEP!  It's officially the Christmas season at our house!

Nanoose Bay Fundraiser

Last night we had a great evening at the Fireside Grill where Darrell and other Sports Staff members organized a Fundraiser Dinner for Nanoose Bay Camp where we volunteer every summer.  The restaurant was full - 112 people! - and we had a great band, wonderful food and a presentation about the camp's future and immediate needs.  So I made a cake that was a replica of the chapel.  Anyone recognize it?

A Halloween Masterpiece

Ok.  I have to admit it.  I think this could be my favourite Halloween costume ever.  Zachary and Brooklyn will argue about whose idea it was originally, but no-one can dispute the fact that Zachary made it.  He drew it, then painted it and then Darrell put together some baseboard for the frame.

Tee hee !  Good painting Zachary !!!!

Brooklyn went as Lola, Hannah Montana's friend.

The master painter hard at work on his creation:
