Brace yourselves, folks, you could be in a for a long post!
I will try to make this short, but alas, I am a wordy person, so I will probably make this long..eek!
I don't usually post family news, b/c for one, I know they like their privacy, and it's not my place to tell everyone, but I won't use names, and no pictures will be used.
My oldest brother (younger than me) and his wife and lil girl have moved to BC. Yay! They are also going to have another baby in the new year. I am gonna be an aunty again!!! I am so excited.
My next oldest brother are moving back from Ontario to come back to BC. Yay!! I will get see my lil nephew again. He (my brother), also JUST finished his MASTERS in Social Work. We are all so proud of him.
My lil sister is moving far, far away to be a midwife. That makes me so sad :( But I am happy for her. She will do awesome, I know!!
A couple of weeks ago I attended my friend Clara's bridal shower. She marrying my friend's (from the church) son at the end of next month. It was held at her parents' house, and it was a great evening.
Here are some pictures from that evening.
Last week V was going to be town, and wanted to hang out with me. Naturally, I said yes. Cause I am a cool big sister like that. I didn't take many pictures documenting our day, but I did get a few pictures, and I will gladly tell you what we did.
I picked V up at Value Village. We did a bit of shopping (she HATES clothes shopping..SO not a 20 yr something girl at all in that regard...lol), that she had to do, and we decided to go to the local park/beach to soak up the sun before the clouds came in. We were only there for an hour, as it was getting cold (the river was FREEZING), and we were getting hungry.
Next we went to our local coffee shop now turned cafe. I have been there a few times, but she had never been and she had always wanted to go. Red Beard Roasters is a locally owned and operated coffee shop, and we all love it. We each had a sandwich (actually the one I had wasn't that great), and coffee drink. Oh, I did have a root beer in a wine glass. Cause I am classy like that.
After our lunch, I took her to Menchies, which / where I had never been before, but I had always wanted to go. It was very good.
Hubby got approved for disability! Yay! I am SO happy!!! The other day, I decided to have myself ad day of fun, other wise known as What April Does on a Regular Basis. Anker and I went to the Farmers' market in the morning (where we found berries, and greens, and pie, oh my!), and then I ran out and grabbed something to eat, met up with mom and dad for a few minutes, and grabbed a slurpee, and then headed for the park. I had clouded up, which I was bummed about, but it actually got quite nice.
That same evening, I met up for a (late) chat with my aunt. I bought her some pies that I had found at the market. The evening was SO beautiful! I had to take a couple of pictures.
