Why hello there!
I was hoping you would drop over 🙂
Welcome to the almost Christmas edition of Suzanne’s weekly blessing list!
It’s that time of year – so many fun things to do and not quite enough time to fit it all in!
But we do our best 🙂
Here are the highlights of the week.
1. Celebrating the birthday boy! Robbie with his sweet girlfriend, Dorothy.
(Overblown with the flash so I opted for sepia)
A lovely meal and a noisy rousing game of Pit!
2. The returning band boys regaled us with lots of stories about the far north.
Those first three pictures are daytime shots. Note those temperatures – Brrr!
It was cold and dark in Alert but the boys received a very warm welcome from the troops and the meteorologists stationed there.
and look what else they discovered!
Aha! I knew there was an ulterior motive to that trip! 🙂
3. And speaking of that jolly old elf, look what else happened this week!
My beloved and his exercise buddies entered the 2nd Annual Santa Claus Run. There were 130 Santas running through the streets of Charlottetown. A lot of fun! The run was 5 kilometers and Roger’s time was 25 min 30 sec. A personal best. The run raised $8000 for needy families this Christmas.
4. In other news, our three uni students, James, Nora and Sarah, finished their exams this week. What a relief and a job well done!! Roger and I are so proud of them.
5. Our Sunday School children put on a wonderful Christmas pageant last Sunday – too bad I forgot my camera. But, I’ll leave you with another sweet children’s version of the Christmas Story that I discovered online.
Don’t forget to pause the music in the sidebar.
Well . . . that’s it for my Friday Faves this week. I have a few other things I need to do today – bake, wrap and make a spaghetti supper for our youth group lock-in!
A walk has to be added sometime today though. The sun is finally shining! That hasn’t happened for quite a while on the Island. We’ve had wind, clouds and rain with not a fleck of snow! I guess all of it fell in Ontario and Alberta this week – not to mention the mid-western States!!
Sarah and I are keeping our fingers crossed for a white Christmas. Someone else, we won’t mention names, is just as happy to get into the woods to cut firewood without wading through snowdrifts. 🙂
Thank you so much for dropping in to visit this week.
Hope your week is filled to the brim with blessings!
