… 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.
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.
Three is such a wonderful age and Jade has been fascinated by our Christmas tree.
Our family stares at the lights for hours and we talk about the all different ornaments.
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.
Bing! Bang! Click! Clang!
Christmas in 1974. It started as the funnest, loudest Christmas ever. I really wanted that guitar. And I also received an amazing Fisher Price family camper.
Later that day, my dad opened up the camper. He took out the cool clicking noise because it was driving him CRAZY.
When I later met my wife, I couldn’t believe she had the SAME camper … and it still made that SAME clicking noise.
Almost 40 years later, my daughter Jade LOVES playing with the camper.
CLICK! click click CLICK! click click CLICK !!!
Hmmm … Where’s that screwdriver?
Vancouver had a massive snow fall last night!
And new snow is PERFECT for making a snowman.
Today was super fun! Jade and our neighbour helped make a snowman.
We then added a carrot nose … the final touch!
