Heidi's visit

This is Heidi, my best friend who was my maid of honor at my wedding. She has been such a blessing to me in my life and has been a model of God's love for me. I am so glad you made the trip and I pray for peace and guidance for you in the new year. I love you so much Heidi! Posted by Picasa
I love this picture of Heidi and Joel. This was only her second time getting to meet him and he loved her to bits. I see Heidi so rarely so it is a real blessing that the kids love her so much. Posted by Picasa
Heidi and Joel, they had a lot of fun together. Posted by Picasa

Virginia and Blaine... off the High Prairie

Here is us, saying goodbye to Virginia and Blaine as they head off for High Prairie, a small town in Alberta where they both have found great jobs. I am so excited for them but I will miss them so much. It has been a real blessing to be able to reconnect with Virgie while they have been back. We love you both! Posted by Picasa

The kids actually got 3 different sets of little people. The farm one from Auntie Berna and Uncle Roddy, the train from Papa and there is a playground one from Nana that Joel opened just after this. They all join together and it is really nice to have a few sets! Thanks guys! Posted by Picasa
