Disney on Ice


I remember as a young girl getting all dressed up in my Sunday-go-to-church clothes. We'd drive to the subway (Dad would not drive the car downtown), hop on the subway and go down to Maple Leaf Gardens. Our seats were always about midway, not too close but not too far up. After a short wait the lights would go out, the music would start, and colour and costumes and talent would glide over the ice. For 90 minutes to 2 hours I would sit, mesmerized by the show that unfolded in front of me. And although details of the show escape me today, the sense of awe and wonderment remain, as does the feeling of family, warm, fuzzy and comforting.


Flash forward upteen dozen years, and although it's a different show, the elements that inspire the awe and wonderment are all there. All that's missing is family. For everyone in Toronto or the GTA (or even Southern Ontario), here's your opportunity to create that family moment that will stay with you and your kids forever. Go to http://krabes.blogspot.com/2009/11/great-giveaway.html and enter to win. Contest ends December 8, 2009.


Didn't win? Tickets are reasonable. A family of four can go for just $44, although my understanding is you have to order 4 tickets to get the deal. Just use the coupon code MCC when ordering.
Enjoy the show!

Lest We Forget






In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place, and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below



We are the Dead, Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields



Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands we throw
The torch, be yours to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields



John McCrae



Lest we Forget!

Do We Really Want To Know?

There he is, laughing hilariously, with a pair of pants on his head.

Can anyone guess what could possibly be that funny to a 15 month old?

Do we really want to know . . . . . .?

My First Entry

Congratulations on your blog, Karen! Now that you have one, what are you going to do with it?

This is what ran thru my mind as I was setting up my blog. What was I going to say? Was there anything to say? Did I have anything relevant to say? Did anyone care what I had to say? Hmmmmmm!

Stay tuned. Together, we'll find the answers.

Big Congrats!!
