December update

Jamie and I have mostly been on the road for the past 10 days, visiting family in Burns Lake and in Penticton.

Pre-Christmas we had a few special gatherings. Here are are some pics from the brunch at Glyness' new condo. I found out just a few days ago that Ashley is ALSO expecting a baby shortly after ours is born!

This picture is taken just before Will and Dave's ugly Christmas Sweater Party--hopefully this becomes an annual tradition!

We drove for about 9-10 hours to visit Terry and Amanda (in Vanderhoof) and the Graham clan in Burns Lake. We also got to visit some good friends in BL as well. Lindy and Nathan are expecting a baby in February!! T and A are due in May. Lot's of babies!!!

Burns Lake was a lot colder than we are used to. It was about -26. Cold enough for me!!! My hair froze!!

Then the 11 hour journey to Penticton on December 24th. Unfortunately on our travels I encountered some morning sickness and I popped the blood vessels in both of my eyes.

It was a lovely Christmas--we were all home and we celebrated our Christmas on Boxing Day, since Keegan and Rachel both worked on Christmas Day.

Oliver, Rachel and Kris' dog was the centre of attention....he's so cute!

New Years Eve: Murder Mystery Party at our place

We had Karen, Hilary and Adrian (they JUST got back from Australia) and Lydia and Nathan over for a cozy gathering. Jamie and I adapted our own version of Mafia and we played it all night.
