We are going!!!

This will be us in a month or two!!

I confirmed the tickets today....YIPEE!!!! I am still pinching myself that it is real. Wow! I can't wait to see my family again......I get so lonely for them, now all we need is a bit of snow for Maxi's first white Christmas. Please can you pray people that if this is indeed what God wants for Tersh & our family, that He will open the right doors for him to find the job of his dreams.

Best I get onto the internet & do a bit of stash shopping........'cos postage to Toronto is certainly cheaper than Cape Town.

Before I go I must tell you about a nugget that is definitely amo' for my next scrap page. To set the scene.....were driving home from church on Sunday along the coast. The road we took overlooks the ocean, so one can see for miles around False Bay....when a voice pipes up from the back:

Max: Oh look there guys {Max's new word}.
{Suitably distracted not to take much notice}Mama: ...oh WOW! babes.
Max: Mama, you are not looking!
{so much for that trick} Mama: Oh sorry, Moeks, what must I look at??
Max: The oil rig, over there.
Mama: Huh? oil rig???
Max: Yes mama, it is sucking oil out the ground.
{Double huh??????}Mama: Wow! thats amazing boy!!! Do you know what we need oil for???
{Matter of factly}Max: Of course mama, cars need oil & fuel to go!
{Now speechless} Mama: You are right about that honey, where did you learn that love?
Max: You told me Mama!!
Mama: Oh! did I....I forgot?

The moral of this story is that they are ALWAYS listening, learning, absorbing, sponging, so don't underestimate the effect your constant chatter has on their developing minds. They HEAR everything......GOOD & BAD, so be ever careful about what leaves your mouth, less you want to hear it coming out of theirs.

Have a fab. soon.


  1. YAY for your trip being confirmed and for a white christmas. When we first moved back to Hawaii from Birmingham, Alabama, Jalen prayed every night for snow. I told him God can do anything, so it doesn't hurt to ask, but just know that historically, it generally doesn't snow in HI (except on the top of the mountain on the big island)

    and yes to them sponging all that is around them!
    what a beautiful boy you have!

  2. How long will you be in Canada? I sure hope God gives us some snow...last year we waited until the end of January before we got some...we all LOVE the snow! I know it will be wonderful to be near family, I missed being near family, but we were a driveable distance, we didn't have to FLY.

  3. Shoo wee, its all happening hey! Very stoked for you, esp the stash shopping part.......

  4. I hope you have a fantastic time there, and you never know it may just snow...

  5. Re: your comment on my blog, not the silhouette as you suppose, but the revolution by quickutz. I have two fonts for that Beauty Queen and Blossom. I have the slihouette and the vector programme but don't know how to get the two to talk to each other../sad, but true.
