|Cold !! Pretty, but cold !!|
My niece belongs to the South Saskatchewan Youth Orchestra, and today was their annual Christmas brunch.
Emily's weapon of choice is the violin.
|We can't believe how quickly Emily is growing up|
This event was held at the premier concert building in all of Regina called the Conexus Arts Centre.
We were offered a delicious choice of ham, bacon, sausages, hash browns, scrambled eggs, fruit, juices and croissants.

Shortly after lunch, the musicians were called to the front, and the main part of the attraction took place.
|Teresa, our daughter Alysha, and the star Emily|
Wow, were they ever good. Now, no one is ever going to get me confused with one of those experts on classical music, but I know awesome music when it is tickling my ears !!
|Emily, Stephen and Alysha|
We are so proud of our niece Emily, and her brother Stephen. Even though Stephen is in the middle of University final exams, he took the time out to support his sister.
|My sister Holly, and Teresa|
They were friends before Teresa and I were married
I was feeling sorry for Emily when I found out her parents bought her an old, used, violin from Hungary built in 1953, until I found out that that was a good thing ... LOL.
All too soon, it was time to give our hugs and say so long, but we will see them again Christmas day.
With the temperature around -15, and a wind blowing at 20mph, we were frozen just walking back to the car.
How should we warm up. Teresa was quick to insist a stop at our favourite coffee shop was in order.
