Christmas Letter 2012

2012 BZ Adventures

What a terrific year we had at in 2012. This year had many highlights and just a few low lights. We had a pretty quiet winter, beautiful March Break in Florida, and then more fun started.

The spring saw Lennie get his knee repaired and lots of rehab to get him back to the rink playing hockey up to 4 times a week.

In May Lennie strutted his stuff on the catwalk again for the Thyroid Foundation fashion show while I dealt with Crohns disease :(. We planted our vegetable garden of tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, carrots, celery etc. and it turned out to be an amazing harvest in the fall.
In June we celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary and we played tennis at the local high school to kick start our summer of fun.

We also celebrate a lot of birthdays and Lennie finally got to strike “attend a London Majors game at Labatt Park” off his bucket list.

July saw lots of pool time and visits from family and friends. Tracy and Harvey Mott popped in for the weekend and lots of fun in the sun. Len and the boys went on their annual golf weekend to Michigan while the wives relaxed.

August saw a wonderful Grieve family BBQ and pool party, our family room reno, and a trip to Vegas with Jeff and the Purvis’ to celebrate birthdays with Johnny and Vicky. We returned home for a terrific visit from our cute niece Felicity (along with her parents Dwayne and Sheila).

In October we travelled to Chicago again to visit the Rutherford clan while I completed my 3rd marathon on my 44th birthday. Len won his annual Crown Royal Classic golf tourney and brought home the “green jacket”. I finally joined a gym and got a personal trainer to help me get into better shape.

November was an eventful trip to NYC with mom to run the marathon which eventually got cancelled because of super storm Sandy so we hit all the hot spots, saw the Lion King, and ate lots of yummy food.

December, well, you can only imagine the craziness this time of year. We wish you all a Happy Christmas and a healthy New Year.
