Patty babysits Gwen most Tuesday mornings and today Gwen had a class trip to the local firehall. not sure if Gwen learned anything but Patty sure did. Now Patty isnt the photographer in the family but I talked her into taking a camera with her. She did a pretty good job and got some cute shots but I noticed when she got back some of the settings were changed. I think if she uses the camera more often she can only get better and hopefully I can help her with that.

Happy New Year
Happy New Year Everyone!!! Especially Alice who I know still checks this blog even tho I don,t hardly write anymore. I'll wait for her to acknowledge this post on facebook before I put a link on Facebook myself.
Well we had a pretty good Christmas this year although it was quiet. Patty and I decorated the lobby and outside of the apartment building. Ben and I built a fake fireplace which turned out pretty good. Patty found a place that had plastic that looked like brick to give it a nice look. Going to store it away for next year.
Christmas day we went over and spent the day With Adam, Mary and Gwen. Gwen is at a great age now where she gets excited about Christmas. She and i had fun playing barbies except she would get mad because I kept changing the names she has for them. Supper was awesome and I ate too much as usual.
New years was nice but quiet. We started off by going to see Nina on our way to drop Ben off at the airport. Ben is off to work in Alberta. We try and see Nina as often as we can while Albert is away and she wanted say goodbye to Ben. We left Dante with Nina and Patty and I went out for dinner at a place called Rick's. A very nice place but too ritzy for our tastes. A steak place and im a burger guy.I remember Patty and I had gone in there one other time with someone that was visiting but we saw the prices and ran out LOL.
Well I hope everyone had a good Christmas and new year and hopefully soon Ill write more on here and let you know how it is Victoria and for you's that didnt know it yet YES we are now living in Victoria!!
