Scottish Kids??

Here are the kids deck out in their Scottish attire. They were dressed up for a Xmas party that we attended on Saturday night.
Isla looked very cute in her tartan dress, and Keir looked very grown up in his Scottish Rugby jersey.

Happy Birthday Jenny

It was Jenny's birthday on the 11th and above is the cake we made for her. Yes those are finger marks on the right hand side of it, Isla thought the icing was pretty tasty!

Xmas tree done

As promised here is the some pics of the final product (at least getting there...)
Keir and Isla putting the ornaments:

Keir really enjoyed decorating this year and seems to be really grasping Xmas spirit. Today we were shoveling the driveway and he said "Dad, I love you and Merry Xmas."
Here is Keir decorating well into the night...

And here is the final product:

One other picture is our Gingerbread house, decorated by Keir and I!!!

Hardie Family Xmas Tree 2008

This Sunday we went out to a tree farm to get our Xmas tree. We were a bit worried about the weather and Isla, but everything turned out OK. Just as we were leaving the wind started to pick up so I guess we timed it very well.
Here are the pics from the family outing.

We started off with a tractor ride out to the field. Then it was time to find the "Hardie Family Xmas Tree". Here is Keir with his two choices (the ones that just happened to be the closest!)

Isla was bundled up and on my back, she is peering over making sure we choose the best tree.

Here is Jenny narrowing down our choices....

Jenny has found it, it is the one over Jen's right shoulder:

Once the tree is found the cutting commences:

"Helpful Keir":

Isla smiling in the backpack:

The final few saw strokes:

We will post some pics of the final product once it is up.

That is all for now

Take care
