Last of the Sewing Birthdays.

For the granddaughters' 7th birthday, 
we gave them a sewing kit and a sewing lesson.

Liv got hers one year earlier so she could join our 
sewing days with all the granddaughters.

She chose to make a purse. 

Ready to go home with her crafted purse. 
Well done Liv! 

We had these kids for the weekend. 
We spend lots of time here. :) 

I always love the noodles in the hot tub! 🤣🤣🤣

And then a bubble bath.

Between Christmas & New Years

Always fun to do some skating between Christmas & New Years.  

Enjoying a wonderful lunch at Lina & Mohammed's. 

Linda made a fabulous cake for dessert. 


Our resident coyote.  

Elwood has named him:
The Grand Duke of Stuart Creek West of Woodstream
Archie for short!

Our New Years Eve activity!

We ate at the Spaghetti Warehouse first.

We weren't the only Habs fan in the restaurant. 
He surprised us in this picture. Haha! 

We got there early to watch the Canadiens warm up

 Elwood loved it.

Sharing stories & pictures. 

Also remembering a wonderful wedding 13 years ago.


Happy Anniversary Erik & Yuriko!
