Gideon - 14 Months

M(om): Hey Gideon! You are 14 months old now! Yipee!

G(ideon): I know, Mom. But what is this? A day late and only two pictures?

M: I know. We have just been having too much fun enjoying summer. And the weather has been so nice to be outside. It is just great!

G: It is fun. I love to be outside and crawl in the grass, play in the sandbox and eat dirt.

M: What else do you like to eat?


G: Everything! Food is so good. I love to eat and eat and fill my mouth too full. I just can't get enough

M: That is for sure. What else do you like?

G: I am starting to be more interested in books. I do like it when you read to me.

M: I like that too. Anything else?

G: I love to climb. I can climb on the desk and small table in the office. I try to climb on the coffee table and the couch, but I can't do that by myself yet.

M: You certainly do keep me on my toes. Thanks for talking Gideon!

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.
