Keeping cozy

With the wind chill we are sitting at -46C today. Brr! It's time to hibernate...

For the grandmas out there...

The picture of Hendrik and I was taken last night just before bed and the picture of Riley is one Hilary took at her place on Boxing Day.

Christmas Dinner

We had our family Christmas dinner early this year so that Dad could be with us before he flew to meet Mom, my sister Lindsey and her husband, and most of the rest of our extended family in Ontario.

These photo sessions usually dissolve into hysterics at some point as one or more camera timers go off before they are expected to and there are various shots of people's backsides as they are running to get into the back row of the picture or diving for the floor spot in front. This time didn't disappoint either. I don't have any of the "bloopers" on my camera but I'm sure I can hunt one of two down...

We had an excellent dinner and a nice, relaxing evening together. Fun, food, and fellowship!

The house!!!

Here are a few pictures to get you started. The kitchen, bathroom and loft are almost indiscernible right now so you'll have to settle for the living room until we get some more organizing done. :)

But first, what's a log home without a little taxidermy?

Back door, woodstove, stairs to the loft.

MOVING!!! ~ No phone...

We are in the middle of moving this week. We spent the first night at our new house on Saturday night. However, we are without a phone as the phone company is trying to get service set up for us. Hopefully we will be back soon with pictures of the new place and an update!
