Santa Claus Parade

December8

This year we had a lovely snowy night for our quaint little Santa Claus Parade. Last year it was -15 C and I learned that was the limit of my scooter battery. It’s so beautiful when it snows big fluffy flakes here, it was really piling up!

The girls rode on the Revelstoke Ski Club float. I’ve just recently fixed up the club’s website which has been a fun project. Maddie has the icy green pants on and Emily is almost hidden behind her in a pink hat.

No Christmas parade should be without the decorated grader!

This past weekend we spent the evening up at the ski area at a fundraiser for the Revelstoke Ski Club called the Snowflake Wine Festival. About 15 small BC wineries were represented and some beautiful items up for bid at the silent auction. The girls stayed at home with our newest helper, Sara. Together this is what they created…

CMH Banner 2015

November30

The girls started/finished their banners on the first day of the program, I finished mine on the final day. Typical, I’ve always been a deadline-oriented kind of person. Perhaps that’s part of why I am a graphic designer and love a good race.

I am quite pleased with this year’s creation, with a nod to the extraordinary talents of Canadian painter, Ted Harrison.

Amazing Changes

November28

It can be hard to believe that we can have sunny skies and warm temperatures one week, still harvesting tomatoes and flowers still growing in pots outside. Then, whammo! the snow begins. Our ski area reported 115cms (45 inches) this week alone.

It’s hard to believe we can go from this…

to this in one week…

Happy Hallowe’en!

October31

I was reading a post on the web recently which lamented the over sexualization of girls Halloween costumes. Luckily it is not so at our house, yet. Both girls have chosen strong, warrior-like characters who can be depended on to save the day! Lets hope that will be a recurring theme in the future.

Banners for 2015

October4

We jumped in on the frst day of the local banner program this year, the theme was “How we move, transportation past and present”. This being their third time, the girls are now seasoned pros and bang off a banner each in under four hours. They are very focused artists, keen to produce something beautiful. And they do… we are very proud of our talented girls!

Our patriot! I wonder if her sentiments will be the same after our governments are finished selling off our beautiful country?
