Not much has really happened since we came back from our cruise in October.

We did a major kitchen renovation at our cottage in Sechelt - floors, all new kitchen cabinets plus some additional ones, new light fixture. It is so nice to have doors on cupboards and a multitude of drawers to put everything. With the knowledge Kelly gained at Home Depot, he was able to lay the new floor. We were even able to add a small apartment sized dishwasher. We had to eat every meal out while we were there for 10 days - aw, too bad.

Larry moved the West Georgia store in late November to a much smaller location in Bentall Centre. It looks great! We also watched the Grey Cup in the lounge at the park. Lots of wonderful appies as usual. Maureen's Auntie Peggy passed away around this time as well.

Our friends Barry and Ann Marie came over the first weekend of December. They went to our Christmas at the Park event with us and then we spent some time planning our upcoming trip to New York with them in August. We will be a week in New York and will take in a couple of MLB ball games and then take a one week New England cruise from New York to Halifax and back with a few stops in between.

We spent a nice Christmas in Sechelt. Both boys were able to be there as well as Kelly's girlfriend, Lori, who lives in Gibsons.

On January 6 Larry went to Las Vegas for his annual President's Club trip with members of his staff who have been with him for five years. Maureen and the boys went to Victoria for her aunt's funeral for overnight.

Maureen continues to volunteer at the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation Monday afternoons and also is knitting for an organization called Caring Hearts which distributes knitted items to deserving kids. Wool donations are gratefully accepted! She is also working with her friend Lesley on the first annual Royal Canadian Legion Gala to be held April 23 at the Sheraton Wall Centre.

Larry continues to work a lot. The economy seems to be turning itself around thankfully.

The next entry will follow a trip to somewhere warm!
