A couple weekends ago the family jumped a boat to the mainland to celebrate, well, a lot of birthdays!
Saturday night was P&S's celebration. We enjoyed a ridiculously good roast beef dinner complete with gravy, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire puddings and more! Then two different desserts and homemade ice cream. If any of ya'll don't know, this gal is a big fan of dessert :) Jacob and Denay were serenading us on the piano as well.....Trev was working the camera while I used S's for the cake shot. He's still learning!
Then Sunday was Cole's big 2nd birthday bash! It was farm themed and S* took it to the max! You can click the photos to enlarge......make sure to get a good look at the awesome cake in the lower right of this collage.

I heard this song for the first time a couple weeks ago at the Praise 106.5 Praise Gathering at our church. Then I heard it again sung by David Crowder on the radio. While we were on the mainland this weekend for family birthdays, my SIL brought this video to my attention and it's just so powerful that I wanted to share.
While we were in Red Deer, Grammie bought Denay this adorable hand painted puzzle chair and as soon as she saw it she knew it was hers and it didn't take her long to figure out how to get in and out of it.
This wee girl has also discovered coloring. She doesn't quite get it yet but it's sure fun watching her figure it out.
It's hard to believe that she turned 16-months-old yesterday and before I know it she will be two! I continue to be grateful that I am able to be home with her and raise her and watch her change and grow. She's becoming increasingly more independent and insists on feeding herself most of the time now.
What a delight she is to me.
You can click on any of the photos to enlarge them as well! Part of me really wishes that I had been here but I have very mixed feelings about the whole thing so maybe it worked out that I wasn't here. Regardless, it sounds like it was a pretty neat event for our spot on the map!

The show (but mostly the people I got to work with) were completely awesome but I am so very glad to be home!
Lots and lots happened while I was away including my dad's birthday, my nephew Cole's birthday, Halloween, the Olympic Torch coming to my teeny little town and some adorable fixin's that I came home with........so if you will bear with me I am working on getting myself organized and I hope to have something to you shortly.
Hope this finds you all well and healthy!
