Countdown clock & Georgia Hotel

Countdown clock & Georgia Hotel, originally uploaded by NealeA.

Here's the Countdown Clock at the Vancouver Art Gallery. The Olympics are almost upon us... just 20 days, 4 hours, 32 minutes, 10 seconds to the opening ceremony. That was this week, Wednesday?

Granddad Don made a puppet show stage for Finn (and another for Elliott) for Christmas, which he - and several adults really like. Uncle David was putting on the show with a snake that Finn got for Christmas, and Don is participating somehow.

Finnegann's biggest gift was a renovated wagon improved and painted green and yellow by his dad. The boys at the part were Finn, Elliott, and Mika.

Here Granddad Buker reads to Finnegann and Don's other grandson, Elliott, from one of Finn's birthday books.

Finnegann turned 2 on January 2. Here Jane holds him as Russell presents the cake. In the background (in the silly hat) is Conrad, Russell's friend and father of Finn's friend Mika. (These are Ros' pictures.)

Van Dusen Light Show

The Gardens presented a light show - quite simple really, lights turned on and off to music, but still quite effective. (Ros shot this video with her little camera.)

We finally got to the Van Dusen Christmas lights display on Jan. 2. Had hot chocolate, roasted chestnuts, and wandered about looking at the lights strung up all around the grounds.
