I realize that my number of waking hours has not changed, yet when it is dark for 15 hours and 6 minutes in a 24 hour period I seem to lose time.
I have a couple of picture heavy posts heading your way. We are surprisingly productive even with the 7 hour Canadian clock. The great white hunters went out for our Christmas tree (almost 2 weeks ago) We usually go out into the bush and cut down our tree, but this year I have been saddened by the loss of so many trees to the pine beetle and I could not bring myself to go and cut down a possibly healthy tree.
We went to the Christmas tree farm out in Westsyde, it was a beautiful day and we had a great time, we got to ride on a tractor and tromp through the snow. We picked a lovely tree, I was disappointed with the height of the trees. We have a tall ceiling and usually cut down a 9 foot tree. The tallest trees at the farm were only about 6 feet tall, no worries we gave our tree a lift once we got it in the house we gave it some platform shoes and it is looking large now.
Notice the white spot on Paul's bum? That is a snow ball Sebastian threw at him, I happened to take the picture as the snow ball struck it's intended target. The kid has good aim.
Pretty picture down the Valley, it was such a pretty day.
The kids decorated the tree. I put the lights on and the kids did the rest.
