Test shots

We're doing group pictures of all the various groups in the church on Sunday after church, so I'm doing some test shots while it's quiet. That way I should be able to set up quickly on Sunday and get right to it :)

We all had a lovely time this evening as the staff got together (along with spouses and kids) for a pot luck dinner.

Much delicious food and good times :)

Pray Eat Play

Our first Lenten worship/supper/boardgames evening was a great success! After Evening Prayer we had tomato soup with rice and bread rolls and played many games-
Backgammon
Cards (various games)
Chess
Munchkin (at one point there were 2 games going on simultaneously)
Settlers of Catan
Sorry
Ticket to Ride

Here are some pictures :)

Dad being interviewed at Gallifrey One

Dad was interviewed twice at the Doctor Who con, and one of the interviews has appeared on YouTube :)

Whovians unite!

My dad is in LA this weekend for the Gallifrey One Doctor Who convention!

screengrab of the Gallifrey One website

I wish Crisp and I could have found a way to fly over there to join him, but we'll have to wait and hear all his stories about it when we see him this summer :)

Ceremonial last shave...

... giving it up for Lent :)

Holly on the back 9 at Apawamis

Friends at the church invited Holly and me to come and snowshoeing around the snow-covered Apawamis club golf course with them this morning- perfect timing as it means I'm now free to take care of all the Ash Wednesday services later :)

Strapping young man


My handsome son and lovely wife at tonight's Pancake Supper...he's getting quite tall :)

Pancake Supper

All ready to feed the multitude ;)

Sunny woods again

A quick run in the woods with Holly before the Pancake Supper. Warm again (42F) but nice and sunny today, and my old, faithful Tubbs 25" snowshoes are perfect for this slushy snow :)

Pretty Panorama


The woods are always pretty, but boy are they extra lovely in a coating of snow!

Fun in the woods

A quick self timer pic of Holly and me playing in the woods :)

At 32F with bright sunshine and no wind it's the perfect day to do the full 4+ mile loop around Saxon Woods on my snowshoes before the rain comes and washes it all into mush tomorrow!

Snowy Woods

And a few pictures of Holly romping in the snow while I snowshoed around Saxon Woods, there's something about a new fall of snow that turns her into a puppy :)











Snow pictures

A few pictures from around the church, before and after we cleared the snow.















My wife knows...


... how to take care of me when I've spent the day shovelling and snowshoeing- this amazing pot of turkey chili has been simmering on the stove all day, making me drool every time I come in for something :)

(AND she dug out all the cars )
