Another year older.... October 29,2007

I can honestly say I never looked past 30. I know some of you are laughing righ now try to control yourself. So to think that I am 35 just blows me away. I have a husband who loves me a son whom I never thought I would have and I live close to family and friends( of coarse there are all the friends that I made while away for 10 years). Really these are all the things that I though intangible. I truely feel blessed and loved. Thank you!

Here are a few picture from tonight. Darren isn't home till tomorrow. I had many offers for dinner, my sister in law was kind enough to come over and bring dinner and my fabulous nephews. They wanted to see Sam's costume for Halloween so here is a sneak peak!

Captain O Captain October 21,2007




This post is long overdue. I would like to proudly announce that my dear husband has received his Captains bars. He has moved over to the left seat! Yay! I could spout many cheers and accolade's but I just wanted to acknowledge all is hard work and perseverance as he has pursued his career.
The picture was a quick snap before he left for his first pairing as a Captian. And just a few of Sam in the backyard in between all the rain that we have had.

Congrats Captain Jarvis!

Then Monday afternoon we all went to my parents house it was a nice time. So here are a few pictures from both.Monday morning we went out to Campbell Valley Park for walk and what did Sam want to do but read a book about TRUCKS!

Giver or Taker October 5,2007

Darren & I recently had this conversation about being givers or takers. It is rather a profound topic when you sit back and discuss the depth. I would suspect that most of us were raised to become givers. It is inevitable that you have to take sometimes to help yourself or your children but this is with the idea that giving is a part of that circle that you start. Like the ying and yang you need both to complete.
In light of our recent events re:sticky fingers! I was brooding about how these people could just come in and take from us. Not just the possesions but the trust in the human race. I have to say that I was out gardening yesterday, as it was one of our only nice days. During my time outside two of my neighbours came over to see how our family is doing and if there was any status on our goods. These simple gesture began to restore some of that trust! It is truly amazing how the our world works.
I am fortunate to be surround with family, friends and neighbours that are compassionate and caring and this I to take but not for granted!

So THANK YOU!

Vent Very BIG Vent!

Well much to our surprise some fine individuals have choosen to vandalize and take our property the other night. We were on our way out the other morning to spend some time together. As Darren was helping get Sam adjusted in his car seat. I looked over and mentioned that we aquired a crappy bike. Darren proceed to look and said well that is because their hands must have been full with our ride on lawn mower, push mower and his new chipper! I can honestly say I feel violated. That these individuals have made the choice to come on our property cut open the area it was being held and take it all. Not only did they do this but they had to negotiated our driveway in the middle of the night and move the wheelbarrow to get the rest out as the lumber Darren had stored was in the way where they cut the big hole would not be sufficient. I really felt that we were living in a safe neighbourhood. I did managed to speak to most of my nieghbours their property was left untouched.
When the police officer did arrive he mentioned that in the same area thieves had also taken an ATV and a trailer. Unbelievable, I realize that we are not the first or the last to have this happen to them but I do feel a little less trusting today! Too Bad.

Thanks for letting me get this off my chest! As Darren said it was just a possesion not our health or our child! I agree.
