Noah's 2nd Birthday

Today we remember our first Grandson Noah's birth.
He would be 2 and I wonder what he would be up to if he was with us!
This year for his birthday we got him a Living Gift.
500 little fishes will be sent to India for the mothers to tend to till they
are grown enough to feed their families.
I love the thought of little bellies being full because of our little Noah.
Our thoughts go out to all families who have Angles in Heaven...may the LORD comfort you all
on your special days and in the Christmas season.

Snap Fitness

So I finally did it, I started my free trial week at Snap.
I have gone 3 days and I do believe I will really enjoy it.
I just have to make sure that I go right after work.
Jo might join me and I am hoping Vikki will want to as well!
That gives me exactly 1 month and 1 day before we leave for Mexico!
I have been walking all summer and also using my elliptical at home since April 11th and I have lost a total of 11 lbs...slowly but surely!
I am not starving myself...just trying to be smart about what and how much I eat!
Feel free to keep me accountable with my working out!

Vikk's Shower

Saturday the 13th of November we had a Tupperware shower for Vikk.
What a wonderful turnout! I think there were 26 ladies present!
Once all order, specials and bonuses and bookings were in place Vikk will have over 1400.00 in Tupperware! How cool is that!
I do not have pics yet:(

8 months

He has learned to clap and does that when Daddy comes home from work
and when he is happy, which is most of the time!
oh and how he drools! his shirt is halfway soaked and he was over maybe 2 hours!
See the tiny tooth beside the turtle??
Thank you Lord for this blessing we call Zander David Wall!

Fender Bender Friday!

Yes that is me standing by the Black Ford Edge!
I had a feeling before I even got into the Edge at work that I needed
to talk to God about safety!
I prayed that he would keep me safe and that I would not have an accident.
All the way on the drive to the Credit Union my thoughts were
"what would I do if I had an accident with a Meridian vehicle"
Well now I know. And God answered half of my prayer, whiplash is all I have.
I was waiting to turn left onto Mountain when I was schmucked from behind,
I never saw it coming! Apparently she did not see me on time either.
What a sweet girl, I felt so bad for her. English is not her first language, French is.
She did not understand half of what was said.
I am thankful I got to meet this young girl.
After Bernie picked me up and brought me back to work I went to fill
out a police report, she was still there waiting for a taxi.
I asked her if I could give her a ride home, she was so distraught.
She accepted and I brought her home.
After my chiro appointment today I feel much better, hope it stays that way!
God is Good, All the time!

Summer 2010

It has been a while since I have posted...not really good at this!
Summer...almost gone again but it has been great!
What have been the highlights?
Vikk & Chris' engagement and planning of the wedding.
Spending time with the best Grandson ever, being able to walk, bike and just feeling better in general!
Jo has begun working for Constelation a few evenings and we have the pleasure of having Zander time! I LOVE sitting outside with him and just watching him...he loves being outside!
We went to Facon Lake for a Penner Campout. I love getting together with family! It makes me feel closer to my parents.
Harvest Festival was spent the best way possible...watching Zander so his Mom & Dad could enjoy the festival!
So, while that is not much, it has been a full summer. Thank you Jesus for that!

anniversaries & engagements!

Today marks 25 years of marriage for Dave & I.
We did not do anything special today and that is the norm for us and we like it that way.
We are however going to Mexico in December and that is how we chose to celebrate!

Sunday night Christopher Patrick Andrusiek asked our daughter,
Victoria Danielle to be his wife and she said yes!

Guess what I did today...

I booked us a vacation to Mexico for my cousin Jac & Jarret's wedding in December!
We will be celebrating Dave's 50th birthday and our 25th Anniversary as well!
Chris and Vikk will be going as well.
The only sad part is that Hank & Jo and Zander will not be able to go
as of right now, who knows...maybe it will work out somehow!

I have added a lot of songs to my Play List!
Some are there purely for memory sake and others I just LOVE!

It has been a long time again since I have sure gets busy!
Easter weekend is almost over and I for one am so thankful that Christ was willing to die on the cross and rose again so that my sins can be forgiven!

My life has been very full since little Zander David was born!
Oh how I love that little man!!!
I am still patiently waiting for his Mommy and Daddy to want an evening out so that we can have him to ourselves!
We have had the pleasure of watching him for about 2 hours last week while Jo helped Hank at the shop...he slept the whole time!!
He is such a blessing and such a content baby as well, we are all so thankful!

Spring is here and with that for me always comes the feeling of refreshing. My prayer is that I will have more energy this year, I have taken steps to help me in that regard and I hope they will pay off!

Well, this will be all for now, someday I will post pictures, I am kind of following Jo's lead on that.

SO I was reminded today that I had not posted a blog for a long time! I guess there is someone checking it once in a while after all!

Dec 12/08 marked one year that Hank & Jolene's baby boy Noah Gabriel was born into the arms of Jesus.
Hank & Jo went to Grand Forks that weekend and asked if we would join them. Dave and I went for one day and night.
I think the the time leading up to an anniversary is sometimes harder than the actual day itself. We had a great day, talking about Noah, what he would have been doing if he were with us. WE also had the joy of shopping for the new baby boy that Hank & Jo are expecting for Feb 17Th of this year.

To commemorate Noah's 1st birthday I ordered a Grandmothers Bible.
It is full of great devotions for Nana's and prayers for the little ones.

I found that I missed Noah incredibly over the Christmas season. I kept missing that little one year old boy that could have been running around, touching the ornaments on the tree and squealing over the pretty presents!
I can imagine Noah having more fun with the boxes than the actual gifts!
We did have a great Christmas and I sometimes felt a little guilty that we were all so happy, but I am so thankful for where the Lord has brought Hank & Jo so far and has comforted the families.
God is good...all the time!
