Birthday Weekend


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEde got to continue her birthday celebrations through the weekend with some company from Whitby. The gang arrived Friday for dinner and then the ‘senior’ members headed into Kingston to see Rick star in ‘A Christmas Story’. He did an amazing job with a script that had him speaking solidly as the narrator for about two hours! The next morning Kyla let me know that her favourite parts were when a ‘kid’ peed on Santa’s lap! and the part where the boy shot the bb gun and shot clear through his glasses.

Lexi had a big job looking after the Grammas.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA She had to help Gramma Ede open her birthday gifts and then was responsible for showing her all of the different ways you can hide under an afghan.

She was also very busy looking after all of the animals. Teddy and Rufus needing chasing a jog around the house … Trotter needed a good work out.  She checked out the entire yard for dragon sticks and found a good dozen chickadees for friends.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATrotter is Lexi’s equine of choice these days. She LOVES to get him rocking. Then she takes great care to pat his mane and stroke his nose. (I wonder where she gets those ideas?) 😉

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Whitby clan had to head back home EARLY Saturday morning. They had swimming lessons, dance lessons AND a Princess Party to get to! So we all got up early enough to take Paco out his breakfast. It was amazing to see how much he still remembers and is attached to Kyla. I bet there was a little girl in his past who treated him very well.


Over these past few weeks Paco has learned that new company here at The Meadow means carrots and friendly faces. He and Kate finally got to meet. He took to her right away and didn’t waste any time moving in for a cuddle.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASo … now the weekend is drawing to a close and we’re all getting ready to tackle the early mornings. I so enjoy the DAYTIME on Saturdays and Sundays. I’m ready for the sun to start making its way back up here! Paco and I got to go for a walk, he got to follow me up into the woods and I could tell how much he enjoyed having people around during the day. For the next two weeks it will be tricky to get home when there is still some sunshine left!

Sending out hugs!
