Happy 9th Birthday, R. :)

I just finished writing a nice lonnng post, but my computer decided to shut down without warning and it was lost!! Grrr. I had links to various photos along with descriptions. Well, I don’t feel like writing it again so here is an abridged version.

It was about my son’s birthday. He, R, turned nine on Sunday. He had a sleep over. We also invited a friend for J. They made pizza and went sledding at night. There was a treasure hunt in which they looked for gift bags outside in the dark. I had put an activated glow stick in each one to make them fun to find. The next day after the boys left, I took R and J and J’s friend sledding again.

Last week, we took Dawn and Sirdar‘s daughters to their hand-bells concert. They performed at a senior’s home. The kids and I were delighted to be able to listen to them play. I took a couple of videos as well. I was sitting to the side which isn’t the best for picture taking, but I didn’t think it’d be polite to elbow the seniors out of the way.

Check out THIS video and THIS one to enjoy a little of the concert.

I just re-read my post. Sheesh. Short and to the point or what. Sorry ’bout that.  🙂 It’s just frustrating to work on a post and then have it lost. I guess I’ve gotta get in the habit of saving once in awhile.

I also wanted to add that I recently got an award from Peter.


Here’s what he wrote:

As her blog posts allow us to understand the ‘chaos’ of the mind – and yet the talents remain from a photogenic ability to share with others – her ‘blogging friends’ the joy of nature and of life in Canada which one can clearly see – in her most recent post and the delightful photo – says it all Also Debbie has a poetic talent which is very rarely seen and it would be wonderful to read more – hope some day soon Debbie )

I’m not sure where he gets the poetic talent thing, but I sure appreciate his kind comments. Thanks Peter. 🙂

    Big Birthday wishes to R! Sounds like a good time for his special day. And the ‘save’ button is my favorite button in the whole world. And because I’m a slow learner it took me awhile and much hair pulling to figure that out too.

    Happy Birthday R. It looks like a good time was had by all. We watched the video clips of the concert. The girls (most J) were mortified ha, ha. They laughed. Thanks for sharing. Congratulations on the award, I put mine up the other day with comments. Too bad he is not around to see us put them up. That reminds me, I still have to put them in my sidebar.
