Family Moment

I love it when we can start our mornings out on the deck enjoying our morning coffee/tea together.

We are Grandparents!!!

We are so thrilled to announce the arrival of our first grand child.  We travelled to their home town on July 5th, two days before the official due date.   Unfortunately the baby decided that it didn’t want to make an appearance on the scheduled date.  As each day went by we got more and more nervous that it wouldn’t be born before our scheduled departure date of July 15th.  I guess the baby decided that it was worth meeting us after all.  Cameron James was born at 4:45am on Thursday, July 14th.  He was 7lbs 12 ounces and 20.5 inches long.  Mom, Dad and Cameron are all doing well and adjusting to life as a family.

Here is a picture of Cameron before they even weighed/measured him.


And of course proud Grandma and Grandpa with Cameron:

And a few pictures of the nursery with the quilt, pillow, window treatment and crib skirt that I made.

2013 in review

Well 2013 is almost over.  For the most part it was a good year.  The last few months have been a little hectic with the rapid decline in Don’s Mom’s health and Tango’s diagnosis of degenerative myelopathy.  I only managed to do one half marathon and few shorter races this year but I guess that is better than sitting on my fanny and doing nothing.

The highlight for me was getting my longarm machine.  It has been my creative escape when life gets the best of me.  Here is a mosaic of my quilt finishes in 2013:

Night race for Kids

Tonight Don and I ran the Night Race to raise money for Starlight Children’s Foundation and the Stollery Children’s Hospital. It was a neat experience to run at night in the river valley with just headlamps to light your way. We took a before and after picture. Can you tell which is which?

Father’s Day


My two favourite Dad’s celebrated breakfast in bed this morning.  Don got his McDonald’s Big Breakfast and Wally got his beloved Timmie bits.

All 3 dogs very generously offered to help their Dad eat his big breakfast.

Happy Birthday Old Fart

Today we are celebrating Don’s birthday by going for a quick dinner at the Keg. We went to Hardware Grill last Friday for the official celebration so today is just icing on the ‘cake’. He won’t let me publish his age but who’s counting anyway.

Door step surprise

We found this surprise sitting on our front door step. We don’t know who left it there. As you can see by the pictures, Wally liked it more than Tango did. Those of you that know my boy will know exactly what he did with his new friend.
