Gideon - 2 Years Old

 M(om): Gideon! You are 2 years old today! How are you doing?

G(ideon): I am good. But everyone keeps singing all of the time and asking my how old I am and then getting really excited when I say 2. I really don't quite know what is going on, but so far, I like it.

M: It is a big day! What has been new in you life?

G: Well, I still love tractors and playing with them. I also really like all of my vehicles and my animals. They are fun to play with. And books are starting to become interesting.
M: I am enjoying the fact that you sometimes want to read and look at books now. What things are you looking forward to this year?

G: Now that it is not so cold, I love being outside. It is so fun to walk around, play in the sandbox and even bounce a bit on the trampoline.
M: I am enjoying the warmer weather, too. How is eating a sleeping going?

G: I do still like to eat, but sometimes I just don't want to eat everything you have given me, even if I like it the last time we at. I think I am good sleeper, but it still makes me so sad that you have to leave me in my room alone. So, I still cry for a bit before I go to sleep.

M: I do hope that some day soon you will be able to go to sleep without crying. But, I am so happy to have my big two year old to hang out with each day. I love you so much, Gideon!

G: I love you too, mom.

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.
