Happy New Year


As we say goodbye to 2014 & look forward to 2015 I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

I have a confession to make and that is I'm not a big New Year's Eve fan.  I tend to want to stay home, watch TV (usually the World Junior Championship game), and enjoy time with my husband and family.  I find I'm almost melancholy; often reminiscing on the happenings of the previous year.
I'm not a goal setter (yikes - imagine that) and I don't make resolutions - - but I do look forward to the adventures of 2015.

So... what happened in 2014?? hmmmm...

In January we traveled to  Mexico with a group of 60 to celebrate the marriage of our niece, Amy to Brent.  It was a wonderful week of fabulous weather, great times with family and new friends and a perfect setting for them to begin their new life together.



Met with the father of one of Canada's hockey heroes!!!  Turns out Walter Gretzky is a bit of a flirt!!!




















June brought me to Disneyland, California for the annual Close to My Heart Convention.  It was spectacular as usual and I loved meeting up with friends to catch up on the happenings of our lives.  It was a thrill for me to meet and chat with some of the guru consultants of CTMH - Lisa, Brenda, and Pam - gorgeous ladies inside & out.



My besties Barb and Nancy.  Can't wait to see them again in July 2015 when we meet up again.


















The summer flew by in a whirlwind of activity - family parties, sea-dooing...




September brought a new/old adventure when Matthew decided to return to the University of Ottawa to finish his degree in Civil Engineering.  We couldn't be more proud of him!!!



We celebrated another wedding...

Michelle was a beautiful bride - nervous as she walked to her waiting groom, Brian.  This beautiful young lady was my flower girl many, many years ago!!!

We celebrated the wonders of a wee one meeting Santa for the first time and learning the fine intricacies of the perfect "stink face" - I still have to master that!!!






Happy 2015!!!
