New Year's Update

I realized that I had never gotten around to sharing these pictures from way back when. So this post is in honour of Chinese New Year!!

My contribution to the light show, in Na and Jerry's front yard, courtesy of Martha Stewart's January magazine. I was very happy with the results and would definitely do it again.

Meadow was asleep but she got up to join the party at midnight!

New Year's Eve just wouldn't be complete without fireworks!

It's really hard taking pictures of fireworks! I'm going to have to practice lots more.

We had a scrumptious fondue, with chocolate, caramel and chocolate marshmallow sauces, to bring in the new year!

In his glory, Caedin rides his 'horse', wears his hat, boots and holster, and prepares his gun! Na and Jerry gave him the boots and accessories for Christmas.

Caedin loved the long sparklers that were in the box of firecrackers.

And in other news, I've been under the weather a bit. I came home early from school yesterday and was in bed by 3 pm, surfacing only a couple of times to hang out with the great white telephone! It's been many a year since I slept for 15+ hours. I did go to school today and feel much better now. Chicken noodle soup and canned peaches for supper and hopefully I'm finished with that flu nonsense.


  1. Great pictures, Mom! Brings back great memories of our time in Alberta. You don't often get sick, but I am glad you were able to take some time to sleep and rest. Nothing a good bowl of chicken noodle soup!

  2. I hope you feel better today and the nasty flu bug is gone.
    Great photos! Looks like a wonderful time!
