The day we left Grandma Effie's happened to be the last day of Hanukkah. Our friends, the Froeses', were having a Hanukkah celebration near Winnipeg. So, we spent the afternoon and evening celebrating with them. We spent the afternoon talking about the book of Daniel then we ate supper.
After supper we lit the Hanukkiyas.
|All the kids.|
|Afterwards we did some dancing.|
The next day we started heading up to Alaska, visiting a few more friend on the way.
|Benjamin and Sarah|
The 31st was Caleb's birthday. We worked it out to spend his birthday and shabbat in Whitehorse, Canada.
|He turned nine and we had cake, snug in our motor home with all the windows frosted over.|
Being as how his birthday is on New Years Eve everyone celebrates his birthday. The Canada Games Centre celebrated it with a huge New Years party. Everything was free and they had snacks, games in the soccer field, a dance, an obstacle course set up in the pool, free skates for the ice rink, fire works and a bunch of other stuff. It was a lot of fun.
|The obstacle course was harder then it looks:P|
|Sarah and Benjamin had trouble with skates.|
|We even talked dad into going ice skating.|
