The family (except for Ian who was working out of town) were home for Thanksgiving weekend. We decided to celebrate this special birthday at the Heritage Inn for Sunday Brunch on Oct 10, 2010. Joining us were a few neighbours and friends. It was wonderful to see the great-grandchildren gathered around Oma ... with a little more help than I think Oma expected with her gift opening ... funny ... the children were disappointed for Oma that out of all her Birthday Cards no one had given her any MONEY ... !!! They think that money is the best gift ever to go buy whatever they want ... !!
After a few hours, (the children were getting bored as you can see them rolling out on the hallway floor) of feasting on the buffet, visiting, laughing we all headed home. Wishing you love, peace, health and happiness always ...!!! Now living on Vancouver Island to avoid the harsh winter in the Kootenays. Oh dear ... what was that I heard ? That it is a winter wonderland there ... laughing out loud ... thought you could get away without the white stuff ... hope you have a great day trudging thru the SNOW ... !!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY !

Kendall has started a new business of natural bath products. This was her first experience of displaying her products. It was a successful weekend and we are so proud of her new venture. Wish her all the best as she travels down this "Rural Road"
And yes, this was her little helper ... Daigen ... we went to check out the fair and he decided it was better for him to monitor the situation from behind he table. What a charmer ...!!!
There was a silent auction of Christmas Trees and decorations with in the hall. This wreath is from Daigens school, and somewhere on the wreath is a Gingerbread man that he created.

I was already out early clearing snow so that I would be able to at least get down the driveway. Have shovelled the decks and now I think I'll wait until the snow stops before I venture out again. I'm getting tired ... time to cozy up with a book and a Chai Tea Latte ... mmmmmm sounds good to me!

We spent the last few weeks preparing for the winter season. We cleared
trees around the house and the boiler wood pile area. Dragged the trees
out into the field to be able to work on them out in the open, took us a
day to de-limb, stack the logs in the back corner to dry for
firewood then had a fire to burn the slash pile. In the
meantime, Mike decided to install a new boiler heating system. That
was another days work and with the help of our neighbour, we did manage
to remove the old boiler and place the new one. Took Mike a few
more hours to hook up the system before we had heat again. Job well
done ... !!!!

Closing in on lunchtime, I decided to venture down to Oma's woodpile to check if they were going to stop for lunch. The kids wanted to go up to Oma's house for a visit and have some hot chocolate (oma didn't have any so I went home to bring her some) It was great, because in the meantime Oma made lunch for everyone ... !!! Lucky for me , one meal was enough for this group. Called the guys up for a bite to eat and had an enjoyable time eating, chatting and lots of laughing.
I went back to the house to continue with dinner and the guys loaded and unloaded a couple more truck & trailer full of firewood. Kendall & Daigen arrived to help me set up for dinner, bringing me a fall arrangement for the centre of the table ... absolutely beautiful ...!!!
Firewood stacked, tools put away, everyone showered and dressed to sit down to a well-deserved dinner.
