Monday, Boxing Day (observed)

We started at Rum Point, but my new friends from Michigan wanted to see big stingrays.
So we went to the Sandbar, they saw big stingrays!

My children are growing up. They decided not to go boating, Hunter chose to spend the day with Luke and Jake while Hayley spent the day with Emily. I don't mind having a day off but I miss them!

Sunday morning

What to do on a Sunday morning? How about a flight around the island? It was free so why not?
Maybe I hadn't realized that I was going to be flown by Captain Liv! Hey I survived so it can't be too bad!

The weather was beautiful. The Sandbar. Big dots are people, little round dots are stingrays. Didn't realise at the time I would be there tomorrow...

West Bay Beach.

The Clan

We are very blessed to celebrate another Christmas with Mom and Dad.
Some of the Roulstones/McTaggarts together for Christmas: L-R, Shirley Roulstone, Hunter Roulstone, Grace Hurst (nee McTaggart), Margaret McTaggart, Sharon Roulstone, Katherine Bovre, Tony Mosley, Raib McTaggart, Beth Roulstone (nee McTaggart), Lisa Mosley, Frank Roulstone Jr., Hayley Roulstone, Frank Roulstone III.

Christmas Pancakes

Taking a break from all the fun to eat some Christmas-themed pancakes. Now the dogs will have their Christmas bath and then H&H will be going to help Katherine set up her horse farm. Christmas lunch/dinner at Sharon's a bit later, then hopefully an early night. Yes, we are still in pajamas and yes those are cases of wine in the background!

Merry Christmas!

Up at 7am and ready to go!

The race is on.

Aunt Grace and Aunt Shirley watch the excitement!

Finally all ready for the onslaught of waking children on Christmas morning. It has been a tough night, there are seemingly millions of fireworks much to the displeasure of Rex and Max, and tough enough to get two excited kids to bed. Now, just after the mignight hour the fireworks continue but the not-so-little ones are asleep soon to be followed by their dad! Santa made it by so all is well. Merry Christmas everybody!

Winter Weather

Bitter cold temperatures (75F, 24C) meant that only the bravest entered the water in search of lobster this weekend. The rest of us just enjoyed the fruits of their labour and stayed land-bound for the first Sunday in a while! Will need the blanket tonight! :-)

Tis the Season

The Triple C Christmas concert; Hayley's class minus the boys.

Hunter's class singing...
and playing the recorder. Couldn't get a pic of Hayley playing the Trombone because we couldn't see her!

Breakfast with Santa

Some pictures from "Breakfast with Santa" on Saturday morning.

Day at Granny's

I think the dogs have it too easy so decided to torture them with reindeer hats...
He was the toughest one (Max), he just can't sit still!

Off to the beach. People from Saskatchewan dress funny.

Nice sunny December day at the beach. As always a white Christmas!
