Gideon - 11 months

M(om): Gideon, where do you think you are going?

G(ideon): I am going up the stairs. Can't I go up the stairs, mom?

M: I would feel better if you knew how to get back down. Why don't you come here and tell me what  is new with you?

G: Well, I have my first tooth just starting to poke through.

M: It is pretty excited. And it looks like a few more are on their way as well. You will soon have a mouth full of teeth.
G: Well, that may mean I can eat even more things. There are so many things that I like to eat and so many that look really good and wish I could.

M: I am pretty impressed with what you eat each day. A whole piece of pizza, any vegetables and any fruit. It is great. What else is new?

G: I am getting really fast at crawling on my hands and knees.
M: You are. And sometimes your body goes faster then you hands and knees and you end up with a bump on the head.

G: That happens most often when I am trying to get to the window to see the tractors.

M: What else can you do?

G: I can clap and wave my hands. I also am getting braver at standing with only one hand.

M: You are a big, brave, boy and I can hardly believe you are almost one year old!

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.
