Winter Happenings

I’ve been reluctant to post this winter because my photos are rather lacklustre these days; I think it comes of being inside so much of the time. Low light photos just aren’t my thing, you know? Oh well, here we go, regardless. 🙂

Our Christmas dinner! ‘Twas a joyful and festive way to end the Advent season of waiting and anticipation.

With the month of December came piles and piles of snow! Here’s the view from our side entrance.

And our back yard, a sea of snow as far as the eye can see!

We’ve got lots of icicles hanging from the roof.

John David and Tessa and their kids stopped by for a visit in late December, and we drove down to the Fraser Valley in early January, but unfortunately I didn’t take any photos of those wonderful visits.

The school next door has a good-sized hill that is perfect for sledding/tobogganing. We’ve gone a few times already and James loves it. June finds it a little too speedy for her liking, but she did join James on the sled a couple times. (This was taken in December, there’s lots more snow now!)

I’ve been listening to Pride and Prejudice on the drive to work and it has been such a delight. Listening to the story aloud has made me notice details I’ve missed the previous nine or ten times I’ve read the story; I love it when that happens! So I spent a lazy afternoon watching the 1995 film version this past week. The kids were more than happy to join me. 🙂
