Racer Emily

March8

Emily went in her first ski race today. Although slightly nervous, she quickly realised that it was lots of fun. She placed third among her Revelstoke peers, but not overall. After the awards ceremony, a gelatto for our super skier girls ended the fun race weekend.

The Snow Queen

March3

The Revelstoke Theatre Company was looking for some help with their latest production, so I volunteered to create the poster and program. I put together this collage using 8 different images. The girls and I attended the play and it was a top notch production put on by some talented actors and crew.

The kittens are out

February22

Spring has sprung in the valley bottom in Revelstoke. Our kittens are now in their eighth month and are getting pretty big. As we suspected, we are not able to keep them indoors, I am just too slow in and out of doorways. So they are spending more and more time outside, testing their boundaries, running from squawking crows and loud cars. They like to follow the girls around on the snow piles, and chase snowballs. Crazy kitties with very fluffy tails!

My Birthday

February18

Another trip around the sun has begun for me, on this year of the sheep. According to Chinese astrology, I was born on a sheep year too, so this should be a good one!
Simon did not disappoint, and made the ever-evolving best Black Forest cake ever!! This year we are loving the flourless chocolate cake, sooo rich and tasty!!!!

Yesterday Simon and I snuck away to Halcyon hot springs for lunch and a dip. It was a spectacular day.

Anything Goes

February8

Our local Visual Arts Centre has a yearly fundraiser titled Anything Goes. About 40 artists are given a 12″x12″ canvas or board to produce a piece of art. This year’s theme was “Light and Dark” and was the first time myself and the girls entered pieces.
All 3 sold for a good price and the funds went towards the new garden project at the Centre.

We had our first big fete in our house, and what better excuse than Simon’s 40th birthday?

We went back to the seventies and had a fabulous time.

Super special was the arrival of David, Cam and Peter, so Dad and all 3 sons were together:

Some yummy cake was a high point for the kids:

The advent calendar had run to 24 and there were 2 very excited kids!

Christmas Eve they left an apology to Santa on our culinary shortcomings and some instructions on how to discipline our kittens, should the need arise:
