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!

Did You Miss Me?

A Touch Of Summer Beauty
Life has gotten away on me.  I have been doing a little of everything and a lot of nothing. 

Here is a little catch-up on the past few months.

On our way to our last day of gymnastics, taking the public bus.
Done with gymnastics!  Thanks teacher!
Chalk and Summer fun with friends

Grade 1...Here I come!
Gary at the Poultry Fest
Celebrating Canada Day
Fun picture at The Glen after a long hike.
Time for some camping.
Here is my pretty dress!

The dress she is wearing I made.  Just another one of those things going on this summer.  I am trying to become better at sewing.  I hope to do something with it in the future, I am not sure what though.  I will have to see where God takes me with it.  I do enjoy it very much.

The Fabulous Ball

All my work has paid off!!!
 I can't believe that the Ball finally came and went!  We all spent a long time working on our dresses and accessories.  We started from scratch!!  I do not have much sewing skills.  But, after doing this project I really advanced in my abilities.  It was great fun and addicting!  I loved every step of it. (For the most part, anyway.)

This whole thing started with going to a lecture on what women whore in the 1812 and then we got asked if we would like to join dance lessons and go to the Ball.  Linnie and I looked at each other and laughed, like are you joking???  There is no way we could have a dress done in time and go to lessons!!! Are you crazy?

Well, then we went home and on our way we decided to give it a chance.  We went to the fabric store and looked at what they had.  Well, lowe and behold, don't we find some great bargain fabric that would do the job?

And it snowballed from there!  Here are some pictures at the Ball.

Linnie and I out for a stroll

Markus and I enjoying this unique opportunity

Don't they just fit?


Town Cry er


Some of the wonderful friends we obtained along the way

The food was made special for the occasion.  It turned out great!

The highlight of the night for me was when it was time to go.  I had worn slippers, but forgot to bring some shoes.  Go figure, it was raining outside.  Well, nothing left to do, but for my husband to carry me to the car.  So romantic!  But don't we get to the car and the door is locked!  My husband was barely holding on to me so I don't fall into the mud.  Our friend, who does not drive this car regularly, does not know how to unlock the doors in the dark!  Well, he finally figured it out after a few minutes and only my big toe got muddy!!  We did it!  I did not fall into the mud, (my whole self, that is).  It sure made for a good laugh! (Sorry no picture.)

What a great time we all had!!! 

Thank you all for hosting this fantastic Ball.  I can't wait to do it again!!!  May God Bless all that was involved!

Nature In All Its Glory


The Niagara Glen
My family took a hike at what they call the Glen in Niagara Falls.  It is a place you can hike down and get right up close to the Whirlpool.  The water runs super fast.  This huge area is where the Niagara Falls use to be, many, many years ago.  The water from the Falls actually carved the land and made this beautiful area.

Here are a few pictures of us taking a hike and having a little cook out for dinner.

Do you think I could get up on that rock?

I LOVE it down here!!

Something is not right here

Tree huggers


Those boulders are huge!

Here is Lukas just getting home from school standing in front of the tree.  This tree was very healthy.  That wind was strong!

This is a tree that got knocked over during a terrible wind storm.  It took the fence and wires with it.

Thankfully we were all fine during this storm.  My thoughts and prayers go out to all that suffered during these storms that went across the States.  It just goes to show you what Mother Nature can do.  From creating a beautiful Glen, to creating devistation and distruction in areas that were once beautiful.  Thats why we have to count our Blessings everyday and Love and respect God and all His people.
