The Vanier Cup in Saskatoon

The Vanier Cup is the Canadian final of the University Football Season. This was the first time that the Vanier Cup was held in Saskatoon. We had a cold snap that weekend and so it was minus 20 Celcius (freeze your butt off cold). Our Local University, the U of S Huskies, qualified and sent Saskatoon fans wild. There was a huge crowd of people for the game and Lorna George (Dad) and I (Trevor) were in the croud. We dressed warm and looked like crazy Canadian Football Fans. In the end is was the Laval Rouge et Or from Quebec that won the game.


Nicholas's 4th Birthday!

Nicholas turned 4 years old in November. Here you can see him with his sister licking the icing off the toys and candles from his cake. His favorite gifts were Littlest Pet Shop and Superman. The kids played dressup at his party as you can see Lauren was a princess. I guess that makes Nicholas our little prince. Nicholas is in pre-school this year and likes it a lot. This winter he is swimming, skating and taking gymnastics. We need lots of activities to stay warm and get exercise in the cold Saskatchewan winter.
