Another Interesting 9/11 Video

Here's some more compelling information. An hour and a half long.

Set Aside Time and Watch This!!


Wow, remember the Matrix scene when Neo must decide to take the blue or red pill. WATCH THIS VIDEO AND CHOOSE THE RED PILL!!!!! I suggested scheduling an hour and 40 minutes to watch it. I was reminded when I became a born again Christian and realized I had been left in the dark. I felt the same way after watching this film.

Well, just a quick note. My brother-in-law is back on blogger and I have noticed that he has his new site on. It is not much yet but if you were a regular reader of his blog back in Korea, then check the side bar and add him again at the new addy. I am excited to see what his life is holding these days. Night night!

A night of joy

Well folks, I am off to the land of nod... or as I say to the kids, time to visit sleepyland. I am so tired. I had the great privaledge of caring for my 2 little nephews tonight. I am so glad that my sis can trust me completely with her beauties. They are definately a blessing, fun, amusing and a bit of a challenge.

One cute thing before I hit the hay...

The boys and I were playing with the kitchen set in the basement. I have one to give to them when they leave town so I wanted to get them excited about ours so they know how to play with it. It has real bubbling noises that sound like the water is boiling in the pot so I said (this is all paraphrased for my memory sake, so as not to have to strain too much at 2am, but close to just what was said)
"Oh, the soup is boiling, it is almost done!" I grabbed a spoon and pretended to take a scoop out of the pot and slurp it up. "Wow! that is great soup! You want to try some?"

The older boy totally 'got' what was going on and took a slurp and said "good soup!"
So I tried the younger boy. "Try some buddy!" I held the spoon up to his mouth and he put the whole thing in his mouth. "Okay buddy, it is just pretend soup" I said as I pulled the spoon out of his mouth.
He proceeded to yell at me, "More soup Auntie, more soup Auntie!" Realizing that he didn't really understand it wasn't real soup, come to think of it, I would feel a little ripped off too given the same situation. Just imaging, Auntie and brother are just raving about this soup and meanwhile you notice it has absolutely no flavour and you are not even permitted to chew on the spoon to get as much flavor as possible out of it. Maybe he was really hungry because I gave him yogurt after for a snack and he ate it like I had starved him all day. Just the thought of soup must have got his tastebuds going.
The older boy and I carried on with the game quietly as to not upset the younger as he lost interest quickly and moved on to more "real" type toys. It was so hillarious!

There were definatly tough moments dealing with 5 kids all the same ages but overall, it was an absolute joy!

Hope you all had a fullfilling and wonderful day. God bless to you all.

Night night.

School and sisters

Well, school is going awesome! I am so happy about it. I have made a couple new friends who are great and Joshua is making friends like crazy! He is loving his teacher and absolutly can't wait till tomorrow when he has library, gym and hot lunch! He did show and tell this week and brought a special shell my mom gave him a couple years ago. He told the kids how you can hear the ocean in it and said the tounge twister, She sells sea shells by the sea shore. My mom taught him that. So cute!

So this is just a quick update. My sis is in town still with her family and we have been having a great time. Rod and Adam have been spending most of their time out on the river, not catching a whole lot but having fun none the less.

Hope all is well with all my blogging friends! God bless you all!

First day of school

Hey, I remember as a kid just absolutely loving school. I can't imagine life for my kids without getting up early to go to school and see friends and the whole nine yards. I love it. And I love the packing lunch and watching them put their indoor runners on and their backpacks on their hooks. I love dropping them off and picking them up. Just everything, it is a joy.

So Joshua started school on the 11th. What a grerat day. He had picked his special, first day of school outfit, himself. He was so proud heading out for his first day. I had to wake him as he is not used to the schedule yet but he woke with a smile on. He came down and had his breakfast.

Then got dressed...
Put on his new shoes, new undies, new socks, and his cute outfit.
Happy as can be!
Hopped on his motorbike with his harley jacket and headed off to school. What a blessing it was to have Adam with us as he is still on his holidays.
Adam and Joshua locked his bike and we met up with Joshua's buddy.
Ready for Kindergarten!
Indoor shoes on...
One quick photo, the kids look a little upset but they really weren't.
And on to class.
There is Joshua's artwork and pic his teacher put up from our home visit with her.
The crayon is part of a set and each kid has one beside their pictures and in the middle there is a pack of crayons and it says... WELCOME TO OUR PACK!!! Cute!
So, today was his second day and he had a great time again. He had gym and library today. And on Friday he has show and tell that he has to bring something for. I am so excited.
I still am a little shocked that the time has come for my kid to start school but I am also so overjoyed it is unbelievable! I thank God for an awesome school, an even more awesome teacher and a most awesome kid to go. He rocks and I am so proud of him.
By the way, my sister wrote this really nice post about my boy. Check it out. Thanks Virgie. He did awesome!

A day out with Daddy

We have not got to spend a lot of time with Adam since his holidays because the river calls him so loudly everyday, but yesterday we did get a day out together. We went to the lake and saw Adam and Sonja and Oz there. That was great. My Adam went swimming with the kids and they had so much fun!
We also went to Williams Creek to check out the spawning sockeye salmon. It amazes me how they look while they are spawning. They get totally red on their backs and have green heads. It is amazing the things that God created, even dying they are beautiful. I didn't take any pics of the fish but here is the family
Joel holding a frog
Joshua's frog.
Each Joshua and Annabelle found about 6 frogs each. There were so many it was unbelievable! So much fun. Thanks hunny for a great day out!!!

Castle Party

I should have brought my camera to church to get more photos but this was Joshua and Annabelle all ready for their castle party at church. It was so great for them. They made swords and conquered dragons and all sorts of stuff. Annabelle really felt like a princess. The little girls looked so cute! Leah and Darci were the Sunday school teachers. What a great idea ladies! This was just before we left for church.

Fishing Holiday Update

Here's one of 2 Coho I caught on September the 4th. The other Coho is in the sink with his head off already before I realized I hadn't taken a photo of either beauty. I thought I was a fishing die hard. Rod you take the cake. We fished 3 days over 12 hours!!! Not that I'm complaining. Lots of fun and beautiful scenery.

Thought I'd show this picture of how thick the pinks were on the Lakelse River. I had well over 100 fish on this day. Lots of fun!!

Here's Rod's sweet 9.5 pound Coho!! Well done Rod!! It turned out great that he caught it at the end of the day as I got to hang out with him all day and learn a few new spots!!!

20 pounds of Coho!!!! Not a bad day on the Kitimat River!!


So I catch the 8 pound Coho and a few casts later I'm into this 12 pound Coho. The thing is wild and trashes about wildly. I was sure I was going to lose it so I went to drag it up the bank (forgetting I only had 12 pound line on, I usually run tougher line) and the line snapped. I shot up a Nehemiah prayer and prayed ohh Lord please don't let me lose this fish. The fish just sat there hugged up, still in the water, touching the bank. I jumped in the water and went to scoop the fish on the shore. The fish hit the top of the bank and started to slide back in. I managed to grab the fish in a bear hug. It was an absolutely unbelievable moment. This fish's one eye is staring right into mine, me on all four at the bank's edge taking a little water into my waders. I grabbed a rock while maintaining bear hug and killed the fish, very ackward I might add!!! The funny thing is if you look at the pictures you'll see when I have my 8 pounder my chest is clean but note the scales on my chest when the picture of the 12 pounder is taken. I love this picture with the line curled up to show you how the fish snapped my line. God truly is my Jehovah Jireh!!

Here's the 12 pound Coho I caught 2 minutes later!!!! What an awesome blessing. I only caught this fish by the grace of God.

Here's the 8 pounder with the pink croc I caught it on. At this point the lure is still on my line.

Here's a nice 8 pound Coho I caught at Hirsch Creek with my bro-in-law Rod. What an awesome day!!

Hello all!

Hey everyone! We are out to the land of fish! I am excited, packed our supper and we are off. We have so many backed up pictures to post but no time. I will do it soon. Adam is nagging me about it again! hahaha

By the way, My sister and her family are in town and that is my excuse for no time but I will make some. I will for sure.

Some messages for a couple people...

Gwen- I have fish for you, COHO!!! Yum.

Tamara- Any wax?... I am ready! We want to go to the hotsprings! When will you be home?

Christy and Jenny- You rock girl!

Virginia- I miss you!

Mom- have a great night with the boys. I love you!

OKay, don't know if anyone else reads our blog anymore so there are my messages.

For anyone else, here is a word of advise, don't take food outside your house, you will be swarmed by hornets, it is not fun. I got stung yesterday and I am not too fond of that so, there is a word to the wise.
God bless you all and I hope you are enjoying a little more sunshine for your spirits to lift before our wonderful winter ahead. Have a great day!!!

Exstew Waterfall

Photo Sharing - Video Sharing - Share Photos - Free Video Hosting

Rod and Bernadette took the family, (Nana included), to the Exstew Waterfall. It was very awe inspiring! I was amazed at how amazed I was. The waterfall pounded onto the rocks leaving everyone covered in a mist, which fed the surrounding grass and vegetation giving it a strong, vibrant look. The rock platform right under the waterfall reminded me of an altar. I had a strong urge to be under the waterfall but the water which sounded like thunder filled me with both respect and terror. I still remember the look of joyful anticipation on Rod and Bernadette's faces as we reached the last stretch just before the waterfall. This video doesn't fully capture the awe but, none-the-less, enjoy!!
