The Funnies

Running Shrimp!

And now for something completely ridiculous!

Chloe’s Spring Ballet Class ’08

Every year, about a month before the Annual Ballet Show, the parents are invited to watch a ballet class and see the progress the dancers have made throughout the year. As usual, we either run out of batteries or leave one of the cameras at home. We still haven’t upgraded from the 8mm PAL Sony HandyCam we got at our wedding so we take these terrible videos from phones or the still camera. Of course there is no zoom and we we don’t sit in the best position to take the video in the first place so the results are in the movie you see above.

With all that in mind let me tell you what you will see above. Chloe and her friends are dancing some basic moves. The teacher, Catherine, calls out exercises and the girls and boys carrying them out to an accompanying piano. There are three separate sequences in this video, the second one is the sequence three of the dancers had to perform for the Royal Ballet exam they attended during the week. It was fun to see how much Chloe has progressed this year, she really enjoys the annual show but her classical ballet skills have really improved this year. We are very proud of her and although you can’t really tell from the video quality she is dancing really well. Bravo! Chloe Bravo!

Polar Bear Club

My nephew Stefan and his friend Tom have staying with us for the past couple of weeks, tonight Tom decided to have a Snow Bath. Something even Glyn couldn’t manage to pull off. Next time make sure to dive into some soft snow Tom!

Happy 1 <3 U Day!

This is so weird it’s funny!

X-treme Luge at the Golf Course

So we went to the Golf Course this afternoon for some sledding. Eric and I decided to try out the Luge that we picked up at the Eco-Centre this fall.

Hope you all laugh as hard as we did.

There Goes The Property Valuation

OK So I completely Chevy Chase out and got an 8 foot tall inflatable Frosty the Snowman for the front yard. This thing has got to be the biggest piece of bling/kitch/chintz I have ever bought and it even lights up at night too. I do have a few other other lights around the door and railings, but I have to be careful this year as we only have 100 amps coming into the house. Who knows next year I might go all Tim Taylor à la Home Improvement and put a landing strip on the roof for the Reindeer.

That is still one of my favourite episodes/

Go Habs! Go!

This has got to be some of the best Habs/Leafs smack talk I have seen in a long time.
