It gives me the bvest of every craft and tons of fun supplies to PLAY with! !
This page shows the kids' Crystal Tree from December 2005. Thanks for looking, I really appreciate it.
~ Journaling reads:
This delicate Christmas tree was created from a kit we bought from Scholastic Book Club for the kids during the holiday season. The tree was made from cardboard, and was set in a little shallow dish, and decorated with a star and beaded “garland.” A special solution was mixed and poured into the bottom of the dish, then the tree “grew” bright green crystals over a period of a few hours. It was amazing to watch. Kate thought the little tree was pretty topped off with the gold star! The boys were transfixed with the way their miniature tree “grew.” ~December 2005

This photo was taken by Wing Imaging in October 2000, when Peter was honoured with the 14 Wing ‘Technician of the Quarter Award.’ In the photo, he was working in the lab, repairing a radar antenna from the CP-140 Aurora search aircraft.
When someone asked him what his Daddy’s job was, Daniel always replied “He’s a fixer!!”

Our Wreath Creation
I was so excited to see the beautiful pine wreath that Bryan made at Cubs! When he brought it home, we decorated it with gorgeous acrylic stars and cherubs. Kate helped me choose some rich-looking navy blue and sparkling silver ribbon. Everything came from the Dollar Store but it looked exceptional! We hung our creation from a shiny brass hook that Daddy installed on the front door of our home. Our wreath looked just beautiful and was quite eye-catching! We received many compliments on it throughout the Christmas season.
All about wreaths: Wreaths are commonly made of evergreens as a symbol for the strength of life, because these plants can overcome even the harshest winters. The circularity of wreaths has been used to symbolize eternity. (Source: Wikipedia )
