Decorating the tree requires concentration!

Halloween was especially fun this year - Rian was 2.5 years old and was great at making the jack o' lantern!
Rian dressed as King
and his mate Sam went as a "sam-wich"!
Trick or Treating was a huge hit!
This year our
house was on the parade route of the loc
al "Parade of the Lost Souls", a Commercial Drive festival hosted by Public Dreams
We bought a fog
machine, Pete borrowed a proxima from work to show scary movies on our front curtains and we decorated the front yard!
We were a huge hit and even made the local TV news!

Our soon-to-be completed 16-month project has been building a wee little cabin in Sandy Hook, Sechelt on the Sunshine Coast!
When its finished, it'll have 5 bedrooms upstairs and a 1-bed apartment in the lower level, enough for a lot of visitors!
Trying to offset our super-sized carbon footprint, we've used a lot of green building materials including bamboo floors, non-VOC paints, 30% recycled fiber-cement siding, a metal roof, low-E windows, recycled kitchen and bathroom cabinets, dual flush toilets, etc.
Its been a long hard (and expensive) slog but its looking amazing!
With both sides of the family coming soon in August, it'll mark the start of a dream where Rian and Elia can grow up with a fun getaway home to have family and friends stay!
Woo Hoo! Welcome Back!
It's been a long time since I've posted - almost exactly 9 months! In that time, guess what we've been doing???
Our beautiful daughter, Elia Makena Roberts was born June 26th at 8:14 pm!
Check out all that hair! I kinda thought she might be blond but just the opposite!
So far she's an awesome sleeper!
Do keep checking this blog regularly!
We've now got two wonderful children to showcase!
