I Spy: Week 47

Welcome to the "We're Kicking Off The Holidays, Inter-Faith Style" version of "I Spy." Pretty much all of my pictures this week are along this theme, with a little coronavirus thrown in just to remind us that yes, it's still  2020 2021. As always, I'm linking up with Lysha at at A Camera and A Cookbook.

Let's Play iSpy 2021


After not having our local Channukah In The Square menorah lighting last year, this year it was back. We celebrated the "festivities" a little extra with some fireworks too!!!


Dave made latkes for the first night of Channukah and I LOVE them!!! They are my favourite Channukah "food." They were sooooo delicious. Rachel and I prefer our latkes with sour cream, Sam prefers his with applesauce, and Dave eats them with both.


I'm so thankful we were "free" to walk the labyrinth at church again this year. I cried through a lot of it because it hit me that it's been almost two years since things have been normal. This is always a beautiful start to the Advent season for me, and this year, that was especially true.


Not only can kids ages 5 to 11 in Canada now be vaccinated, but we had the good "fortune" to get one of the earlier appointments for Rachel so we're that much closer to all four of us being fully vaccinated!!!

{your choice}

If it were up to me, it would always be "my choice" to have my mom here to make our Advent wreath. She did a way better job than I would have and I'm so thankful.


  1. Hurray for Chanukah and vaccinations!!!

  2. Some lovely moments captured in this post!

  3. So so much goodness in one post- so glad you are enjoying some old holiday traditions again and those latkes have my stomach growling- ha! Yeah for the vaccine :)

  4. I like my latkes with sour cream too. That advent wreath is beautiful.

  5. The labyrinth and wreath are both beautiful! :) Love seeing them!


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
