Well this winter has been fantastic since travel restrictions to the US have opened and we can start to plan a trip down after Christmas, it changes your mood a bit.
Unfortunately Don did have Covid, it took him down hard for a few days and he still feels the effects a bit. I guess we may never fully understand this pandemic, as I never did get it. Odd…
We celebrated Reese’s birthday in November and were able to get her to the mall for the traditional shopping and lunch trip. Crazy kid has wanted to rent one of these animals for along time. Why not on her birthday?
And Tracy had her birthday. Last year we decided that Tracy Lindsay and I would go to a spa for our birthdays instead of figuring out what to buy. It is a wonderful new tradition!
As soon as November approached it was time to start the Christmas Box tradition again! We started this last year and it was so much fun. The first box contains cookie kits for each kid, and then other ideas I get along the way. The second one is gingerbread house kits. The kits are all handmade by Don and I!
Again we been so fortunate Covid has not shut sports down yet, and we have been BUSY with rink appointments for everyone.
We were so excited to have Christmas at the house with everyone, and were so sad for the Stecyk family when just days before Christmas they all contacted Covid! I felt so bad for them, and mom and dad were sicker than the kids for a longer time, so combined with arctic temperatures that stopped the boys from playing outside, it was a hard holiday.
We did enjoy our days with the Camerons though, and look forward to a time when we will all celebrate together.
Don and I did something odd for New Years Eve - we went out! LOL
We bought tickets to a dinner and show at the Yellowhead Casino. It was a Beatles show and it was fantastic!!
All in all the last 2 months have flown by, and I must say we sure are looking forward to 2022 and hoping for a more normal world in general.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!
