Family Day In Canada....♥️



Every February...in Canada...there is a holiday Monday...

Designated as "Family Day"...

It breaks up the Winter.....between New Years and Easter...

Nice idea, eh?

My kids will be getting together this afternoon ay my son's place...

We will be doing a Face Time with them...

Hope Miss V remembers her old Nana & Papa....

I have selected a few photos from the archives to share with you all...

My daughters Lissa and Erika....SIL Jeff....son Ryan....

And of course....Miss V....

Along with my boyfriend and I....


















I hope that all my Canadian friends are getting together with their families today...

Either in person....by phone....Skype....or Face Time....


Heading out to do some shopping...

Nice day today....South wind, for a change...not so chilly!

Hope you all had a great weekend....and kept yourselves warm!

Enjoy the rest of your day....

Cheers!   :o)

  4. That little girl couldn't possibly forget you that fast!
    We have "President's Day" today. It doesn't mean much except that there is no school or mail delivery and the banks are closed.
    I like the Family Day idea better.
    Happy Family Day to my Canadian family!!!

  11. Praise the Lord for Skype and Facetime, Linda. It is a Grannie's second best friend, after real-time cuddles. Miss V is a delightful child, and I for one never tire of looking at her pics. Although my daughter lives there, I never knew about the Canadian Family Day. Must investigate... xx

  15. Hi Linda - It sounds like you are feeling better now. That's great. Enjoyed your family pics and love the pics of Miss V. I bet she misses you so much. I think you picked the best week to get the heck out of here. I don't remember it ever being this cold. Enjoy the sunshine. :)

I know you have a bit of cold weather on the way... but trust me, it ain't nothin' compared to here! I have never seen it like this. Unreal. It's great that you got out of Dodge! Hee hee. Big hug to you.
