Our Ballerina

Ava has been taking a ballet class at the local recreation centre. Today was the last class day and the whole family was invited to go and watch. She and all the other little girls were adorable!

Check out the thumbs up at the end of this one!

And this one was a freeze dance...

Monotype Printmaking

Thanks to my friend, Janice, we had a fabulous field trip today to a print shop where we learned about monotype printing. We had a such a great time, we are thinking of going again for a second class in the new year!

Weekend Away!

Wow! What a fabulous time Bob and I had this weekend! We were able to get away, just the two of us, to downtown Toronto (one of my favourite places) for some rest and relaxation. Woo hoo!!!

It was such a blessing!

We enjoyed:

viewing the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit at the ROM (I won't even go into how emotional I became over some of the artifacts...I LOVE God's Word and am so thankful that He has made me one of His children!),

eating good food (see below for more),

seeing a movie,

and of course, just being together and relaxing.


And if you do not know yet about, check it out! It has saved us money in the past couple of years.

Many, many thanks to our beautiful, amazing friends, David and Karen, for volunteering to keep our children and giving us this opportunity! You guys are the best and we love you so much!!!

Holiday Freebie

Here's another great free offer from The Old Schoolhouse!

2009 Holiday Digital Supplement/Idea Book

Play Barn Fun!

We met our friends, the M's, at a local conservation area for a picnic and fun in the 150 year old barn that has been renovated for climbing and jumping. We were the only ones to brave the cold weather and had the whole place to ourselves. What a great time!
