Next was Elise's much-anticipated party. Our week was so full of afternoon and evening commitments that we had no choice but to hold the party on Monday after school. It was a tad premature, but the kids certainly didn't mind and all went well. Pam organized a great series of crafty activities (mask decorating, necklace making) before we had cake and opened presents. Elise had a wonderful time.

Thursday was Elise's real birthday and she was just as excited as on Monday. We heard her lying in the dark in her bedroom singing "Happy Birthday to Me" at 6:45 am before getting up and rushing out to open her presents, bleary-eyed from the night's sleep. This was followed with her favourite breakfast, French toast, and then a fun day at school with her friends. She went to art lessons after school and then we met Josie and her family at White Spot for a birthday dinner. It was another special day - I can' believe she's seven already!!!
This movies shows Elise skiing part of the upper Peak to Creek ski run on Whistler Mountain. Her skiing has come a long way from this time last year.
