Warmth is a good thing

Christmas preparations plus some computer problems have brought about the yearly lag in the blog. Hopefully I can catch up before we have any more major excitement!

Luckily before the real cold and storms hit, Chris replaced our old broken woodstove chimney. He first started by cutting a newer, bigger hole in our wall. Which provided some lovely scenery of the outdoors...

Looks like a nicely framed vista of fall leaves. Only it's a hole in my house.

As usual, the boys took any opportunity to help use tools or climb on a ladder very seriously. And of course, if one sees a hole and one's name is Liam, one must stick one's head through the hole.

Colin had to jump in and be part of the fun as well. And of course, every father allows his kid to climb up on the shed roof in the dark and then proceed to climb up a ladder (also in said dark) and finish the last of the external chimney repair. For the record, obviously this took place on a night I was at work. However, in the end, all's well that ends well and I am happy that once the cold and snow did come through we were all nice and toasty warm!
