A little bit about me and a lot about the things we do.

Early Christmas

What possibly can Ron and I buy for each other?  We buy what we need.  We do a lot of little day trips.  Whenever we are out, we are usually together, so how can you shop for each other?

So, after thinking about what we really wanted we decided it was to spend some time with our grandchildren.

So how do we do it?  Thankfully WestJet had an amazing seat sale and so we booked flights to go to Ontario.  Now, what shall we do with these mugs?

Yup, we are going to take 3 out of 5 to the Falls for a few days and then Jenn and Joe will meet us there so that we can have some fun with them and the youngest two,

We probably won’t dress up this nice though!

A Full Weekend

Ron and I had a full weekend.  We started off on Thursday by going to Spruce Meadows to watch some horse jumping.

I have been so enjoying these tournaments.  The horses are so magnificent and watching them jump over the fences is so exciting. We spent the next few days at our son's. 

On Friday, we got our truck bed sprayed and a new cover put on and Ron and I walked for an hour and a half.  I won the bragging rights for the games.
On Saturday, we planned and cooked a big dinner.  Ham with all the trimmings!
Ron and the kids went swimming and I was left with the animal farm to keep me company.

On Sunday, we went to church in the morning.  As we drove away from our son's we enjoyed the beautiful views that surround the area.  We stopped in Bragg Creek for lunch.
For the afternoon we went back to Spruce Meadows.  Rachael met us there for a few hours.
First, they set up the course and then the riders walk through. They count each step, measuring each jump until they need to clear the field.  Then the horses and riders come out.

After an afternoon of jumping we went out for supper and then enjoyed an evening with Michael W Smith.
We enjoyed the full weekend!  Now I'm trying to recover.

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's Thanksgiving but I think every day should be a day to be thankful

It's a choice and it's not always easy.

I'm thankful today for the wonderful dinner we had last night with family and friends.

I wish the whole family could have been together but I am thankful for friends that become like family.

I'm thankful for a hard working husband who loves me.

I'm thankful for being close enough to our son so that he and Rachael could come for dinner.

I'm thankful for my two Alberta daughters who spoil me rotten.
Happy Thanksgiving!
