Saturday...nearly Christmas....

We awoke this morning to find that there had been some kind of blizzard in the night. Our driveway was covered and poor Santa had fallen over and had become helf buried under the snow. We dug him out and re-erected him and then set about digging ourselves out of the driveway.

Neil makes a start.

My what big piles we have!

Santa, standing again over to the left, and Neil still shoveling.

A very festive Land Rover.

Merry Christmas! Testing out the timer button on the camera.

Christmas time is coming.....

I don't want to reveal too much about our Christmas decorating as I don't want Katarina and Paulo to see it before they arrive here next week but I wanted to show that we have done something and oh, ho, ho, how jolly it makes us feel.......

Neil and Doog with the tree. The car smelled so lovely for the next couple of days! It was just a shame there were so many sticky patches from the sap!

Here you can see me struggling with erecting our reindeer....yes ok , I know it's only small but it was hard work!

Yes, I think I have it's head in place here.

Neil tries to hold up an 8 foot Santa!

Da Daaaaaa! Santa and his (one) reindeer! Lovely!

And here I am decorating the tree!

Hunter-sitting last week.

Last Friday night we got some bottles in and had a good night of drinking and eating (and burping and puking). Hunter had a great time and so did we. Changing him was an experience and we didn't really know if we were doing it right but he seemed pretty happy so it was all good!

We were pretty impressed by the fact that Hunter, despite only being 2 months old, was a big Oilers fan already.

Neil and Hunter watched some TV, had some milk and then they were pretty much pooped.....

Aaaah! How cute!

Movie star....

Neil has been working in the media office which means he gets to do fun stuff like work in an editing suite, audition actors and even star in movies! Well, not movies exactly, this was a video about gang violence and Neil got to be the victim (in case you hadn't already guessed).

Here he is in an on-set meeting prior to filming. The guy with the camera is Neil's new buddy and pretty much his Canadian clone Renee. The German porn star look-alike is Gary who gets the pleasure of working with Neil most days.

Here are a couple of monkeys, oops, I mean Neil and Renee.

Neil and the gang that beat him.


Neil, Renee, Jody and Gary.

Poor Mr Poog...

It's warmed up now but last week it hit a low of -38 degrees. Doog didn't like it one bit. He pretty much refused to go out at times and we literally had to kick him out the door. He'd pee as quickly and as near to the door as possible and then demand to be let back in. He does this thing where he'll lift each leg up one by one and hold it up for a while as if it's just too cold to keep them all on the ground at once. We were starting to worry about the poor little thing, he doesn't have much hair and we all know he's a wimp at the best of times. Anyway, Neil went shopping and bought him a set of paw-tectors (little fleece lined rubber booties!) and a blue, padded bomber jacket thing. He's not sure about the booties and can't really walk properly in them but he loves the jacket. It's even got a pocket for him to keep his chewy in!

"Let me in....brrrrrrrr!"

"Why the hell did they bring me to this place!"

"What the frick are these?!"
