Out of the Darkness

We had a major snow and wind storm on Friday and a fire at one of our power generator sites which left most of the island without power yesterday and there are still around 35000 people without power.

Mom stayed here Friday night and we lost power around 9 Saturday morning. Around 4pm my sister called and said there was power on at Mom's building but neither one of wanted to drive since there was still a lot of wind and with the lights out across town they were telling people to stay off the roads. When Albert got off work at 5 he came and drove us to Mom's where we stayed last night. The lights cam on here at lunchtime but we stayed at Mom's until after supper to give the house time to warm up.

Aaron was suppose to start school tomorrow but they've decided to keep the schools closed until Wed to conserve power and they said we may have rolling blackouts.

A new year and hopefully a new blogger

This year I have two resolutions, to save some money and be a better blogger. 

I'm saving because CTMH has announced their convention locations for the next 3 years, in 2014 and 2015 it will be in Disneyland and 2016 it will be in Disney World.  Albert and I have agreed that we will be taking Aaron to Disney World so I can go to the convention again and we can have a family trip.

I'm also determined to share more of my scrapbooking and pictures with all of you.  I'll start with some pictures from our Christmas.

A couple of Aaron dresses for his school Christmas concert.

Our Christmas Tree, I changed my colours this year from red and white to fuchsia, purple, and teal.

 Christmas Eve


Christmas Day

And the other big news in our family, my nephew Justin d his girlfriend Caroline got engaged on Christmas Eve and we had a party for them on New Year's Day before they went back to Calgary.
