Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our other wheels. When we are not vacationing check in for updates, although less frequent, about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Merry Christmas

Well I guess I need to get through November before I send Christmas greetings!

We are having a great time enjoying the kids being back to their sports 100%. It takes some scheduling to make it to as many games as we can, sometimes we have to miss one or two but try to keep track and make it even overall through the month or week.

So November birthdays are Tracy and Reese. We were able to take Reese out for the traditional birthday shopping and lunch! It's unbelievable that she is 12 years old and in grade 7.

Happy birthday Tracy! Happy Birthday Reese!

I decided to fly to Saskatoon for my November meetings and was that a fiasco! On the direct flight home it ended up being a stop in Calgary which turned into getting back to Edmonton 5:00 pm Tuesday instead of noon on Monday. 

Both November and December seemed to fly by. 

We completed what are now the traditional Pre Christmas activities - Grandma and Grandpa Christmas Boxes!

It is such a fun way to share ourselves with the grandkids, and make the season longer. You never know what will be in them - Christmas cookie kits, Christmas PJs, family games, tree ornaments, maybe a gift card. The possibilities are endless!

We also went to Tisdale for a quick Christmas visit with mom and the siblings. Our gift to mom this year was a catered Christmas meal with just her immediate family of kids. I was so glad Don did the extra driving so I could see mom and then get to my Co-op meetings!

Thanks to our kids the year ended again at a New Years Eve bash at the casino - this year Fleetwood Mac and ABBA. The food, music and company was top!!
