Yet Again...

That is right. We had another snow storm. No church yesterday. Schools were cancelled today and are already canceled for tomorrow. Someday is will be summer. I just don't know when. We have gotten a total of 515 cm of this winter. That is 16' 10" for you Americans. 

This is our road looking south, toward town. Yep... no one is getting down there anytime soon. We are very thankful the feed truck came on Saturday and the milk truck made it here yesterday morning before things got really bad.
 The tractor tracks are from Wilbert show when to blow the snow out of his parents drive way. He also pulled out a car this morning for someone who decided not to heed the RCMP's advice and was trying to get to town.

I am really thankful for two purchases I made this winter. Good quality snow pants. And just two weeks ago I found some great snow boots on clearance.  These things have made it so much more enjoyable to be outside.
 Wilbert has the kids in the tractor with him as the kids and I needed a break from each other. Here they are moving the snow from in front of the building by Wilbert's parents house.
 And finally a picture for Wilbert's parents of there house. They are still in Uganda. We will try to have it dug out for them by the time they get home! :)

Planning for 2018

So about this time of the year last year, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and finally came to the conclusion that I was not keeping very good track of things and my life. So, I bought and planner and I love it. But, in my search for a planner, I kept thinking there has to be something that can not only help me plan well, but also help and encourage me spiritually. Then, last year Jamie Ivey highlighted Anchored Press in her 2016 Gift Giving Guide. And I knew I was going to be getting a planner from Anchored Press for 2018.
And it has arrived! And I love it!


I am so excited to start using this planner in the new year. I hope that it will help encourage me in all areas of my life.

Mataya's 5th Birthday!

We had a great time celebrating Mataya's birthday yesterday. 
It took her a bit to decide what she wanted on her cake. First is was a bunny, then a flower and then she finally settled on a bunny with some flowers by it.
 She declared it perfect, so that was great!


Here she is with a few of her gifts. A few requests were her own flashlight (not pictured), bunny slippers, activity books with stickers and the biggest one was "slide on shoes."
After cake and presents Mataya said with pure joy, "This was the best birthday ever!"

A Visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke

A few weeks ago we had a great visit from Emil, Karisa and Zeke. There was lots of cousin love...  Oom Emil love....
 And Oom Wilbert and tractor magazine love...
 There were lots of walks with Oma...
 And trips to the beach...
 They were here over Canada, so there was the annual Church Picnic, of course...

 It was a cool day, but no rain.
 But yes, I did wear my sweater on the beach.
 We also took a family morning and visited The Butterfly House
 It was lovely and peaceful and most of the family enjoyed it. Zeke was a little nervous the whole time, but over all did well. We also had a picnic lunch and saw the Young Company Show at the Confederation Center.
We had a great time and were sad to see them go. Hopefully the time will just fly by until our next visit.
