Hiking and Apple Picking

The sun came out and gave us a gorgeous day for hiking the Maliseet Trail and Apple Picking at Dukeshires. Great times with great friends.

Potato Break

So they are claiming this is the LAST Potato Break....where have I heard that before? In the twenty-one years I have taught in Carleton County they have talked about it being done and it did go from three weeks to two and now only 8 schools have it in the entire province. I will believe it when I see it.

We had some fun the last day of school with our Potato Themed activites. Radio-Canada was there to do an interview. There was hot potato to Bud the Spud Potato Sack Races, Potato basket relays, Potato on a Spoon races and Dr Blight(a variation of Dr. Dodgeball). We gave out Potato Chips, Potato Stress Balls from McCain Foods and pens and pencils from Potato NB.

My amazing

Yesterday was the Christmas Piano Recital for Jenna. She chose a beautiful outfit from Garage to wear- so grown up! She had a very challenging piece this year- "Christmas Tree Music Box" and she did a pretty good job. Then, since it was done earlier than expected, she asked us if we could skip the cake and after party mingling to get to the hockey practice we thought she was going to miss. So we took off to the car, zoomed home to get her changed and her gear- in the car she assigned us jobs when we got in the house! LOL! And she made half the practice too!

Here she is playing her piece:

Here she is watching the others, is it just me or are her legs super long?

Here is the group that performed this year. My girl is right there in the center!

Just about 10 minutes after the last pic in the locker room, transforming:

Her possee/team mates surprised she is there:
Intent on being ready for her turn on the drill:
All this over a period of 1 hour from recital starting to hitting the ice mid-practice.
If we ever wondered if she played hockey for the right reasons we know now the truth!

I touched the Stanley Cup!

Ok, I am still in shock. I touched the Stanley Cup. The same one that Sidney Crosby, Wayne Gretzky, Patrick Roy, Guy Lafleur, Maurice Richard, Jean Belliveau, etc.... touched......

Christmas without snow

The rain took away all our snow :-( Though the weather forecast is hinting at what I love most about being a teacher after summer- SNOW DAYS!!!

Working on some Christmas projects- the December Daily Album- I have Day 1,2,3 and 4 are done. Today my girl and her friend went to public skate with SANTA and I was banned, along with my camera, from the event. Luckily, another mom was there with camera and snapped a shot of them for me! Love other moms!!! So once I get that there is my day 5!

Also picking away at my Basic Grey Calendar for 2011 for my folks. Neat concept but I think I like doing my own thing more. With a try once though.

Had hoped to get to Presque Isle today but no one was moving with any enthusisasm and there was lots to do about the house- laundry, housework and some decorating.

Here is my pride and joy this year- my advent calendar:

December 2010

Wow! Where did the time go? I frantically finished my advent calendar last night and Jenna opened the first box to find a coupon for a Dairy Milk Bar!
She will open the odd numbers, even for me and the weekend ones for Richard since we know he will be home then for sure!
Also starting My December Daily Album as inspired by Ali Edwards Photos for the following:
Timmy Treats

and a gift from my hubby who knows how much I love Christmas Tunes and what a Gleek I am!
