Post Christmas Tidbits


That's BC checking out his Christmas present from his BFF Banjo. Banjo's a cool Jack Russel Terrier.


And here's the latest from our girl nannying her way through Whistler, Canada.

HAPPY BOXING DAY!!

So, I've learned Boxing Day is essentially Canada's version of Black Friday. However, I stayed here with the kids so the parents could go shopping. They came home around noon and we went... DOG SLEDDING!! It was really cool but it wasn't as awesome as you'd expect. The trail smells really strongly of dog poop. And the dogs throw the snow into your face when they're running... through dog poop.

But it was still a really awesome experience.

I miss her a lot, but when she gets home I will miss these daily updates enormously.

Dog sledding sounds like a good metaphor for life :)

But as long as it can be enjoyed in some fashion, that's the key thing.

Cool! ....and Ewwww!

Linda said...

Hmmm... sounds like a bandana over the nose & mouth and a pair of ski goggles are a good idea if I ever get the chance to go dog sledding! LOL! This is an awesome opportunity for her. So glad she is experiencing new things and enjoying it.

I was going to say the dog-sledding-metaphor thing, but Irish beat me to it. :)

I am also on the other end of the spectrum; I've loved having my older kids here, but it's time for them to go home, now (Darling Daughter tomorrow afternoon and Oldest Son early Wed. morning).

And now I'm taking dog sledding off my bucket list. :-)

Isn't it awesome that she can update you like this?

I remember boxing day as hanging around the house in jammies. My perfect holiday.

LOL to Irish Gumbo, and ditto to Sprite's Keeper. Ick. But I'm glad your daughter is enjoying herself!

In South Africa it is a public and bank holiday, so no shopping.

I think we need more holidays here in the States! ;)

The nanny is certainly getting to experience life a different way!

These are fun updates!

Dog sledding sounds fascinating, if the poop did not get in the mix! LOL

That is fantastic. Nothing like frozen dog shit! Hope you had a wonderfully merry Christmas.

In the UK Boxing Day is a public and bank holiday... so endless shopping for some. Not for me. Like "Only a movie" I hung out in my jammies.

But thank you to the Young Nanny for giving me a heads up on dog sledding. Given a choice, I think I would rather shop.

I've always thought dog sledding would be great fun but there are drawbacks, aren't there. Same as going for a ride on a haywagon with farting horses!!

I take it you are a daughter filling in for your mom. Greet her wherever she is. Happy New Year.
