= 30 =

I turned 30.
Yup, it happened.
It happened far faster than I ever thought possible.
But I take joy in the fact that it happened so fast because life is so wonderful.
It truly is.
There is very little that I would change in my life.
I have all the blessings that I ever dreamed of, prayed for or thought of.
I am blessed.
And that is why my life is happening quickly.
So I shall just take joy in the fact that I am blessed and seek to make the most of it.
Of every day.
Every week.
Of every month.
Every year.
I will take more time counting my blessing than my years.

I was blessed by my family two Sundays ago.
They threw a great big family party for me, with Mexican food!!!
It was so yummy!!!
I love food, I love family, I love being together, so it was perfect!

Getting supper ready.

And doing puzzles.

We made the most of our Sundays while camping by simply relaxing.
We slept in, ate breakfast, got the boat ready and put on the water, picked up pizza and then set sail!
Theres nothing quite like eating your lunch out in the middle of a lake!
Taylor took a few mins to get used to the boat, but then she loved it!
We couldn't get her off of the boat!

Enjoying the view.

Riding with Daddy.

The captain of our boat.

Bring on the pizza!!

Love these cuties!!

After boating we relaxed some more while Taylor had a nap and then ended the day with ice cream!

Bubble gum.

Birthday cake.

My 2 favourite things... ice cream, and these people.

Celebrating Christmas 2017

Christmas was wonderful!
We had Christmas gatherings and events for 6 days straight!
But we loved everyone of them.
Family, food, relaxing, sharing memories, making new ones, games, hockey, cold weather, warm fires, giving gifts, movies, visiting and just being together!

On the 25 we were at Josh's family. 
We had brunch, played hockey in the bitter cold, opened gifts, played games, watched movies, and ate loads of food.
Great Grandma handing out gifts.

Oh the excitement!!!

Thank you hugs.

Enjoying the warm fires.


On the 26 we spent the day with my family (after spending a bunch of time fixing our frozen water and sewer thanks to the super cold weather)
We played games, ate more food, visited, played hockey, opened gifts, played more hockey.

Mouse Maze with Grandma

Pool with Grandpa


Being cute.

Playing piano.

Opening gifts.

Jen and Ben

Rita wanted a cute picture with Frank, but he was busy....

So she thought she'd join in with Ruth and Jason...

Frank finally realized what has going on so he smiled...

And in the end we got a cute picture. :)

Trying on Daddy's stuff.

All the cuties!!! Plus one more on the way!

On the 28 we had Christmas at home with Steve and Raechelle.
We had brunch, relaxed, opened gifts, the guys played hockey and we visited.

Excited for gifts!

My favourite gift of all!
