Festival of Trees 2010

So it is that time of year again and time for another tradition up here in Edmonton. Last weekend we went to the Festival of Trees in support of the University of Alberta Hospital Foundation. And this year Amy was back to join Bailey and I in the fun. Here's some of the pictures courtesy of Amy and me.

Activities started off with Mini Tree Decorating, Gingerbread Man Decorating, Tree Ornaments, and Santa Hats.

Bailey and Amy in the bubble. Notice I got Amy right as her bubble popped.

Next we checked out some of the trees

So we have a Mickey & Minnie Tree, a Firefighters Tree (that's my favorite), a Medical Supplies Tree from the Hospital, a Penguin Tree and what I call The Bubble Tree (bubbles were just near by). There was also a tree shaped like a dress but the picture didn't work out.

Here are some of the Gingerbread Houses and Cakes Decorated for the festival. The first one in the Alberta Legislature in Gingerbread. This one and the second cake were award winners from the gluten-free bakery Kinnikinniks.

As you can see there's something for just about everyone.

The next stop was to check out what the money being raised was going to and we hopped into a surgery while we were at it.

And of course, what trip to a christmas festival would be complete without a trip to see the big man himself, Santa Clause.

Well I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hope to see you all soon.

Whilst I wasted time......

I checked my email, and had an invite to do this. So, while I know it's still early, please check out the first elfYourself video of the year.
(Note this is a representation of my siblings and me, however since I have no good, recent photos of Randal, Theresa has stepped in. Enjoy!)

I can't figure out how to compress these pictures so I can publish more than one picture per post. Any advice.....

one picture at a time

This isn't working too well....

Here's a few more

I'm attempting to post some pictures of my family. We'll see if I can figure this out. These are pictures of our summer adventures in Waterton, Meadow Lake and Oregon. We had such a fun summer and it was so great to see all of you.

We are still waiting for construction to begin on our house. We've bought the lot and are waiting for all the permits to come through so we can start the basement. Very exciting!!
