last weekend we visited the rather stunning canyon lights at the capilano suspension bridge... i took about five photographs and my battery ran out.. the spare was all the way back in the car unfortunately.
we had fun gingerbread making, sipping hot chocolate (of course) and listening to the cool christmas band..
but only one decent photo. oops.

i have just started going through my memory card and organizing any remaining pics from 2013 so i can start a fresh and be organized going into the new year. i found a few little gems i haven't shared yet...

i really love these pics of roo riding his bike a few weeks ago, we were just going from our house the library which takes about 15min and i had to run to keep up, he's fast!

side note: real time here we have a bunch of snow again at the moment, roo was making me laugh this afternoon out on his bike when he kept saying he was testing his 'snow tires' :)

so last time i was rattling on about the weather (it's the british in me) and now here i am again :)
we had a little snowfall earlier this week... now it really feels like winter.

roo wore three layers of pants. benji snoozed.
we ran around
we walked backwards
we checked out our footprints
we didn't make a snowman because we didn't have gloves
we fed crow friends our crackers
we got cold toes
we supped hot chocolate

the weather has been a bit abnormal lately in vancouver... instead of the typical november rainy blues we've been having colder than usual temps and beautiful sunshine, which has actually been great, but no rain = no snow and i was hoping to get out on the slopes again this season! not to fear.. looking at the forecast for this coming week our rains will be back to normal by the end of this week.

the temps dropped particularly low this last week and we headed out twice last week in -6 (or less) sounds sooo cold but without wind and as long as you keep moving it's really not so bad.. especially when you have  steaming hot chocolate and coffee waiting for you :)
