more pictures

Well I have a few pictures to post. Taylor's school picture, Keyra the pregnant one, and then all three of us girls and Taylor (Keyra, Aly and Myself).

We went to keswick for christmas with my father last night. It went well. Taylor was content with the way things went, and was happy to play with Alex.
After we got home last night, we ran to Janet and Peters house for David and Susan's send off. It was nice to be able to get together with our friends and say farwell. We are sure going to miss the three of them. They are very special people. I am sure the Lord will continue to bless them.
Have a great day!

Well last night we had our "Christmas" dinner. I did the turkey (fallingn apart and all), baked corn (in the slow cooker for the first time), smashed potatos, and gravy. Jason made the Salad for me. Things turned out really yummy. Taylor however was more intrested in playing with Michi, and Julia then eating, but he is making up for it today. I did get him to eat his turkey, but thats about it.
I love to have company for dinner. I enjoy cooking for friends and family. I thank our wonderful friends Dave, Susan, Julia, and Michi for coming to enjoy the wonders of my kitchen. We sure are going to miss you guys when your gone.
Taylor has asked me again today if he can marry Julia when he gets older. So watch out Dave, I sent him your way... told him he as to talk to you and Sue before any of that can happen!
Have a wonderful snowy day!

Well last night we all went to Gage Park. We had some fun. I got a few pictures of while we were there.
Today, Taylor and I went with Aunty Jen (my ex husbands sister) to visit her grandma and grampa, Aunt Marie, and Aunt Aggie. Taylor seemed to have lots of fun. He hadn't seen his great grandma/grandpa since he was very young. I am glad that he got the chance to visit with them. I didn't get pictures, as I forgot my camera at home, but I am hoping that the pictures that Jen took with grandpa's camera make it my way.
Not much else to report today. Taylor is already getting excited about the few gifts under the tree, and wanting Santa to hurry up and come.
Have a great night.

mmmm hungry

Well, Sue and I did some baking of Gingerbread last night, and she got me started. Tonight, Jason and Taylor decorated some cookies, while I did some more baking.
There is gingerbread, shortbread, and bananna bars. I am not sure what on earth I am going to do with all this baking. Knowing Sue and I are going to meet with others on Monday and share our baking then. Ah well, I guess traditions never die.

Need a bit of help

Ok, so I need some advice. Take a look at the picture, and see what you think. I am making another baby blanket. This time I am making it for a friend, who doesn't know yet what she is having. I want your advice on if this is an ok colour for both boy and girl. I hope it shows up ok on here, I did my best when taking the picture. There is purple, pink, blue, tan, green, and they are all mixed.. let me know Please leave a msg!


We went to Barrie to visit Kim, Neal and the kids. Taylor didn't leave Daniels side the whole time we were there. I sure hope that I didn't set Taylor up for anything bad. I don't know how often we will be able to make it up to Barrie between now and when we move. I am sure that we can arrange some visits, but it is an hour away. I guess that isn't that long when you think about it. And the road does drive both ways. I should have taken the camera with us, but I forgot until we were driving home. Kim and Neal found a great house. They are close to everything. It is a good size for them. I sure hope they will stay there for a long time. Buying a house isn't a small step.
I will keep them in our prayers.
The drive up was very nice, looking at the town, the area, and all that goes on. The drive home was in the dark, and a very quiet drive. Taylor slept most of the way home.

wait... wait... wait...

I am still waiting to hear that my sister has had her baby. The last few times I have talked to her, she has been wanting the baby to come early. She only has 19 days left until her due date, but we all think she is going to go early. Not to mention the fact that she has been drinking rasberry tea as much as she can (it is supose to induce labor).
We are slowly starting to think about our trip to Kenora for Christmas. It isn't easy to think about it when it seems so far away yet.
We are going to head to Barrie area on saturday to visit a friend, and see her new house. Taylor is getting excited as he gets to see his bestfriend from Kenora again. He has been looking forward to this weekend for the past few days. I am sure that he and Daniel will have lots of fun.
Well not much else to say right now. Maybe later today sometime.
Have a good one!
