Winter Fun for some...

Hi Kids,

Hope you're having fun with all the snow you're getting. We've been having a very mild winter so far but it's
starting to get cold now that we're approaching February which is the coldest month in Cape Breton.
We've finally put some studded tires on the jeep and to be honest you really can't survive a winter out here without them even with 4x4 on the truck you still need good tires and studs to get you through the ice. My commute to work isn't that far but the road is very windy with lots of hills and curves so I'm glad to have the studs put on... although in the summer its a great road for the motorcycle!!

While we're enjoying our winter wonderland your Grandma and Grandpa are off to Barbados again to warm up for a month. I spoke to Grandma today and I was very happy to hear that she has had contact with you kids again. I was worried she was going to take legal action there for a while because she wasn't at all pleased with being cut off from you kids last summer and fall. Anyway, all's well now and I hope you get to spend more time with them this year and Aunt Cindy too.  It's very important that you have a relationship with Grandma especially when you get older I know you're going to want to be with friends and do your own thing but, remember how much our family loves you and wants to be a part of your lives.
I know it's hard for you Zach, because she is my mom and you hate me right now but don't let that get in the way of your relationship with Grandma, she loves you more than you could ever imagine. She has gone through a lot of hurt too since I've been shut out of your lives, but she's doing the best she can to keep the peace so she can always be a part of you and Sophie's life and to keep you safe no matter what. You can trust her with anything, she will always be there for you as am I no matter what you might think.

Well I think I'll just keep it at that for now, have to go to bed and get ready for a new week. Oh did I tell you I was promoted to General Manager which means I've signed on for another year. So far I'm really enjoying being a part of rejuvenating this theatre, it's a beautiful venue with lots of potential. A friend of mine is producing a rock video and they're going to shoot it at our theatre, should be fun. I'll let you know how it turns out.

In the mean time, never forget how much I love you and miss you both so much!!!!
Have fun in the snow.

I love you
Dad
