The kids have no school snowed quite a bit last night! As of right now, the house is still very quiet.....they don't know there isn't school yet...LOL.

It's been a busy weekend! Friday night, my three cousins and myself went to see "Holiday On Ice" at The Metro Centre in the! What a fantastic ice show!........lots of talent.....Kurt Browning, Sasha Cohen,Jamie Salé & David Pelletier, and lots more! Th icing on the cake was that fiddler Natalie MacMaster played the music, as did The Cotters. For those not familiar with those names.....they play Celtic music, and what better place for Celtic music than Nova Scotia! It was an amazing show!

On Saturday, same 3 cousins and myself headed out to a neighbouring town to do some shopping and have lunch! We spent the afternoon and evening doing some Christmas shopping and eating lunch at a wonderful restaurant! What a great way to spend a day!

Today was supposed to be the day I wrapped Christmas presents, but that isn't happening with the kids home from school!! Maybe I'll work on my Christmas cards instead!!

EDITED: I actually managed to get ALL 3 kids and the dog in a photo!! This will go in some Christmas cards as I don't have my daughter's grad photo until just before Christmas, and I don't have enough wallet photos of the other two for this will solve that problem..LOL I think it's okay. My son has his "riding his dirt bike splash pants on, but that's okay.

Take care everyone!!

Marion, dear, your weekend sounds so lovely. I love to watch ice skating. I am all left feet when it comes to skating ~ I am simply terrible at it.

I am planning on working on my Christmas cards as well today.

It sounds like you had quite a weekend, Marion! I'm glad you got to go out and enjoy such a wonderful show.

How are those Christmas cards coming along? My envelopes are addressed. I'm just waiting on my prints to come in.

Good for you that you were able to get the kids and the dog in one picture! Oh, and snow days are such fun, well for the kids I mean... I grew up in Quebec and it was always fun to stay home and play in the snow. I never stayed outside long though, the best part was coming in for hot cocoa! :)

You really had a busy weekend. The ice skating show with Natalie, I am sure, was outstanding. I would have love it. We also got snow - about 6 inches but they are calling for 11C for tomorrow. What a fine mess that will be.

The kids picture is precious. Have a nice day!
