We've taken our children to Holly Tree Dental in Nanaimo, about a 10 minute walk from the Gabriola ferry and I must say that I have been very pleased with their service.  They are great with the kids, have an inviting lobby and they are creative !  One of my children had the habit of being a thumb sucker at night and at the last check up they let her know that it would soon cause her some long term damage, they then showed her a "gold thumb trophy" that she would receive if she could make it 30 days without popping that thumb in her mouth.  It's now been 30 days since that appointment and we went in today to have her thumb cast so that they could make her trophy- trust me we had tried a lot of techniques to get her to stop.  I also like the phone calls they make the day before the appointment, reminding clients of their appointments, how long the appointment should take and how much it will cost.    They get two thumbs up from us!

A message from Santa...

One of our favorite family traditions in the past few years has been creating amazingly special video messages from Santa, (yes he even knows where Gabriola is),  with the help of: . These customized videos are designed for both adult and children, and you choose whether they are on the “naughty” or “nice” list. The good news is that there is still a little time before Christmas and so the elves are busy creating gifts so any behavioral modifications can still be made. Hope you have as much creating, sending and watching them as we do!

Advent - Day 3

Today, Randi and I took the Foreclosure and Court Ordered Sales course that is offered as a continuing professional education course through the BCREA.  Satnam Sidhu gave a dynamic presentation on this difficult subject and lots of insights into some very complicated real estate matters.
If you're interested in knowing your credit score, once a year you can go to Equifax and get it for free.

Advent - Day 2

The kids signed up for the school choir and have been practicing on their recess breaks with Mr. Bradbrooke, the music teacher at the Gabriola Elementary School.  On Sunday, the kids choir sang at the United Church on South Rd, I think it was a treat for all that attended.

Advent - Day 1

Nothing like starting the advent season by sorting almost $2,000 worth of Purdy's chocolates for a local fundraiser.

A new take on ADVENTS & post its

When Dec. 1 rolls around, we immediately hunt around for the kids advent calendars so they can begin celebrating the magic of the season.  They open the little "windows" leading up to Christmas, the windows remind me of post in notes, just saying a little something.  So this year, I've decided I would share a little insight in our (the Lynch's) Live with you over the 25 advent days.
It's our 25 day "post-it"advent celebration!
