I Am Gingerbread Chewbacca

Chewbacca

A goofy creation of mine during our “Art Time” with my nieces and nephews at Grandma’s.

Visiting Grandma’s Home

Visiting Grandma’s Home

We just came back from Grandma’s home in Saskatchewan.

Grandma is “old school” and doesn’t have any cable tv or internet connections.

Because of that, we spent a lot of time drawing, going to to the playground, etc.

Jade had a wonderful time seeing all her cousins, aunts, uncles …

And Jade especially loved seeing her Grandma again.

Dog Days Of Summer

Dog Days Of Summer

Lately, we’ve been dog-sitting our neighbour’s amazing black lab.

The dog’s name is Gunnar and he’s eight years old.

He has the perfect temperament for children.

Gunnar doesn’t jump up on people and he doesn’t lick faces either.

He’s the perfect friend for Jade.

She absolutely adores him.

Jade drew the fun character and then I thickened the lines (above).

We made a bunch of drawings and Jade danced around (below).

And The Cow Jumped Over The Moon

The Cow Jumped Over The Moon

Hey Diddle Diddle !

… the little Jade laughed to hear such sport …

Jade and I really love listening to nursery rhymes together.

This nonsensical ditty might be our favourite.

The Mesmerizing Northern Lights

Northern Lights

A hint of Arctic air.

It was chilly in Vancouver today.

I was telling Jade about the beauty of the Northern Lights.

I grew up in the Canadian prairies and we’d see them often.

The Northern Lights dance, glow and shimmer across the dark sky.

The Canadian winter brings many moments of creative beauty.

Yesterday, during a family walk, I photographed some ice.

Always appreciate the simple beauty around you.

It’s always exciting when my wife and daughter come home!

Christmas Center of Attention

Christmas Tree / 1

Three is such a wonderful age and Jade has been fascinated by our Christmas tree.

ChristmasTree / 3

Our family stares at the lights for hours and we talk about the all different ornaments.

Christmas Tree / 3

There are a few gifts under the tree and Jade likes guessing what they are.

It’ll be so fun around the tree and finally unwrapping our presents.
