Thanks Giving




I have really neglected my blog.  I am sorry.  Life just has gotten in the way.  I seem to not be a very good multitasker.  I would like to just say I hope everybody has a great Thanksgiving, weather you celebrate it or not.  I am so Blessed in this world.  I am Thankful for all of it.  I could not do it without God.  I have  a great family and many great friends.  Thank you to my dedicated blogger friends.  Sorry again that I have not posted in a while.

Nelson's Manor, Grimsby, Ontario and a great re-enacting day!

Nelson's Manor in Grimsby, Ontario

It was such a pleasure to be a part celebrating history.  My family and I thoroughly enjoyed being part of such a nice group of people. Whom which allowed everyday people to come and visit a few buildings that are rarely allowed to be seen and were opened up for our enjoyment.  Here are some pictures I took along the way...

This time of year is so tough.  The kids are getting a lot of tummy bugs this year.  I just give them lots of love and hugs.  Yesterday was the big Christmas concert.  After it was all said and done, my boy tells me he had a terrible tummy ache and it took everything he had to not get sick.  Poor guy.  He is better today, but his sister has it now.  She can not fight it as well as he can.  Joys of motherhood.  At least I do not have to go to the school three times today!  Yeah!!  (Usually I enjoy the walks.)  The weather is not the best today, so staying in the house with sick kids is not so bad.

Maybe we can do some activity to celebrate the Christmas holiday.

May God Bless all of you and I hope to be back here soon.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I get to celebrate two Thanksgiving dinners.  Yummy!!  I am always, (or try to be), thankful of all the blessings in my life.  Especially my friends from the States.(I will ALWAYS love you.)  But,  new friendships have become very prevalent in my life lately.  I have met new friends through blogging and also in life.  Two women have become very dear to me.  Just when I though it was impossible to find "good" friends, here they are, waiting for me.  You see, I have many "good" friends in the States, but it took me 9 years to find some good friends here in Canada.  God is good.  He new when I was ready for some new people to enter my life.  I am Thankful with all my heart, to have the gift of friendship!
