New House September 11.2009


So it looks like we are in the process of purchasing a home in Walnut Grove. We have been in full packing mode around here so if you stop by expect to be put to work! Just kidding. So we will be leaving our current residence by September 25/09 and will not be in the new home for around three weeks. I am sure we will be checking our email and such and will still have our cell's if you need to get a hold of us.

Thanks for all of your good thoughts!



First Day of Preschool September 9,2009




First of just wanted to say that these pictures are definately Mommy google pictures. Sam had his first day of preschool and loved every moment of it. He couldn't wait to to strap on his backpack and walk over and meet his new teachers and friends. We got their a bit early and started seeing the kids arrive. When the teachers opened the door, Sam stood in line introduced himself, blew a kiss and that was that! When we picked him up he was smiles galore. Side note I did cry but it is a cry of happiness!

Hope all of you had a great first day too!

A busy day September 6,2009





During our busy day we had headed over Karen's house to drop some of our belongings off. While were there Auntie Karen kindly offered to have Sam join them for the afternoon. No time like the present to say yes, so Darren & I left managed to get a load to our storage facility, pick up more boxes and grab a lovely bite to eat at a Japanese restaurant, YUM! We met up with Sarah, Sam & Karen at a Starbucks what a wonderful way to spend a day!

PNE 2009





Forgot to mention that we took a wee little break from packing to enjoy a bit of summer. We headed down to the PNE after we made apple sauce. It was late afternoon so we grab a bite to eat before we headed into the exhibition grounds. We enjoyed seeing the animals, street entertainment and all the lights & colors. We sat down to watch the monster truck drive around and low and behold Sam showed interest to go and ride on the truck. Now I thought by the time Sam & Darren got there Darren handed over his cash Sam would have decided to not go for the ride. But as Darren said he ran up the stairs and buckled himself in and wait for the truck to start. During the ride I was in the stands practically laughing myself to death. Sam did enjoy the ride but insisted they were driving tooooooo fast! After that adventure we attended the free outdoor concert featuring Johnny Reid it was fantastic!

Last saucy party @ Newlands September 2,2009



We had the pleasure of Donna and the boys come over to help us pick and make apples sauce for the last time. We put everyone to work as soon as they arrived. Buckets were filled, peeling occured and then the simmer of the sauce. I have to say that I didn't expect any apples this year and low and behold the tree surprised us. I am very greatful to have been surround by fresh food. I will take these experiences and continue to evolve. Thanks again Donna, Kyle & Brandon.
