Hains Junction in the news!!!!!

I hope you all get APTN on your television sets! Tonight (the 22nd of Dec) APTN is airing the arrival of Santa into the different Northern Communities (the title could totally different - I haven't a clue!!) & YES Haines Junction is one of his stops!!
Thing is, the reindeer couldn't come all the way into the Junction so, the FAST-DOGS & my perfect husband (and YES, he IS perfect) along with the aid of two extraordinary little elves got Santa to town without delay, by dog-team no doubt!!!! Elf Adelaide & Elf Sarah gave directions to the lead dogs to make sure all went smoothly (all the while, reassuring Santa that all was safe - heck, the FAST-DOG team got it's name for a reason you know!)

Unfortunately for ME, we don't have TV in the cabin at this point so we can't watch it! One girlfriend thought she could get it at her house but sadly, called to say she can't! :( I'm still trying to find a way to watch it! BUT...if you have any way of taping it for us THAT would be just AWESOME!

On YUKON time, It is on at 5:00pm.....I am not sure if that means 8pm (Ontario) or 7pm (Alberta) or if it will be aired earlier or later for you folks "outside".....you might want to check your TV listings!! I REALLY hope you can all get it on your TV'S!!!!!

Well I just happen to know one particular older elf who hasn't finished her wrapping chores & should get to the task before the little elves wake up :)

Merry Christmas to all :)

Awwww!! Now I wish I got tv for a change. Have you checked their website to see if it will be broadcast somewhere on there?

Heather (aka Mum) said...

Hi Kara!! Yup! It will be on the internet for one week (I haven't got the link yet but I'll get that tomorrow) I'll try to figure out how to put it on my blog for all to click on! :):):)

My girlfriend gave us sattalite tv for our wedding & to think I haven't hooked it up yet!!

Get that satellite tv dammit!!!

I saw it tonight, but we couldn't tape it - malfunctioning vcr...

It was good though, lots of baby shots, a shot of Heather, and Martin as well. Oh yeah, and that fat, bearded guy in the red suit...

Oh, it was on during the 6:00 news on APTN, they had a little blurb for the Santa visit. It was a few minutes long.

Hi,

Ian and I saw it, and managed to tape it as well. Great shots and so nice to recognize people and places. I will put the tape in the mail - marked "DO NOT ERASE!" Have a nice Christmas - wish I was there.
