Things are moving along with the Holidays in the Aragona-Turgeon household 🙂 A couple of week-ends ago, we put up our exterior lights and some decorations. Last weekend we put up our tree and decided to keep it very minimalistic this year. Since we weren’t going to be all together for Xmas, we went with our artificial blue spruce. It being somewhat smaller than usual (owing to the fact that our living room is much bigger than the one in our apartment 😉 ), we did not want to put up all our ornaments. Plus, not wanting to have to constantly chase after Charlize to not touch all those dangling pretty things, we also refrained from the usual “village” on the floor. So, the tree is very simple with straw star ornaments, red balls, and a couple of the special ornaments we’ve gotten over the years. Pictures will be forthcoming.
This weekend was also the back-to-back kids xmas parties. First up, Air Canada’s party at the hangar on Saturday. (it was after that party that we put up the tree). Secondly, the Standard Life party on Sunday (and did you hear/ read/ see that we reached our donation goal for the Telethon of Stars? $400,000.00 !! As I told our president last year when we raised $385,000.00, “this donation and cause means a great deal to us. It is because of such generous donations that so much research and development has been possible which directly led to our daughter’s life being saved.”)
Anyhow, although a bit more subdued than other years, the party was still a lot of fun. And, for your pleasure, I’ve put together a little picture montage of Kyle and Charlize at the party 🙂 Click the image of Kyle getting his nose on to see the rest 🙂
That actual page will be added to over the next few weeks as I add more pictures of events 🙂
