We were down in
Toronto to catch a Maple Leafs hockey game at the Air Canada Centre. After
we had found a parking spot we wandered around to find someplace to eat
dinner. This lone Christmas tree loomed large in the courtyard of a number
of office towers. While it was a little lonely it did contrast nicely with
the office lights in the adjacent buildings.
Erin wanted to
show me some Guinea pigs in Acton's Pet Value store because she desparately
wants a pet to cuddle with. While in the store the two resident cats were
having a playfull catfight which ranged over the whole store. The grey
taby above tries to get a vertical advantage - meow.
Some of Santa's
8 tiny reindeer want to start flying around the world while their handler
tries to keep them on terra firma. The Acton BIA held their annual Olde
Fashioned Christmas from 1:00 to 4:00 pm and had free wagon rides with
Santa and free hot chocolate. Erin as Acton's Leathertown Ambassador was
on hand to help out at the event.
Acton Sobeys Xmas
Some of the women
of Acton Sobeys at their annual store Christmas party - just before they
pass out from doing the Elaine dance. Sarah (reclining), Ann, Lori and
Karen also looked for Santa to discuss their gift wishes.
Acton HS Xmas
the halls of Acton High School prior to the 2008 Christmas Concert put
on by the Concert Band. Kevin has gone to Chicago and Boston with the Band
and this year the destination is Montreal. The Band also has a smaller
section called a Jazz Band and they did a fantastic job with songs like
A Swinging Holiday and A Jazzy Merry Christmas.
It was a rocking
evening as Eric Allen celebrated his 60th birthday party with a star studded
evening at the Burlington Legion. In the photo above is Helen singing while
Eric plays the guitar. You can see the band play one of Janis Joplin's
songs - Piece of my Heart, on the following Youtube video.
It's time for
It's an umbrella
Christmas as the Hamilton Family gathers up in Innisfil with the northern
Hamiltons. Have a great holiday season and a happy New Year.
