Nathan and Sarah

On August 25th 2011 . . . my cousin Nathan and Sarah became engaged! You are both such a wonderful example of joy-filled love! Looking forward to your special day.


P.S When I get an engagement photo of them I'll post it.... without the dirt!


My friend Louise and I were able to get together before she headed back to school. We had lots of fun.

For their Anniversary dinner, Mom and Dad went to Vieux Port Steakhouse on St. Paul Street in Old Montreal. The restaurant was four stories high (indoors) and an outside patio on the street. The food was great! Mom said you get more for your money in the restaurants there, always a plus!

My cousins Tabitha and Giardana stayed for a visit after the anniversary party on the 7th. They stayed for a whole week! It was really nice to be able to spend this time with them. We don't see them much.... they live near Toronto. This picture of the three of us was taken one day before I went to work - Uncle Clare was taking them out on the boat!
One afternoon I took the girls to Pakenham. I needed to buy some chicken feed (yes, I have chickens again... that's another post) I also just wanted to show them the sights! We had fries at The Chip Wagon and on our way out of town we had ice cream at Scoops.... they were not starved! We had a wonderful afternoon together :)

Sisters! Bears that Erin "could not afford to buy for them" at the General store. :)Uncle Clare took them out on the boat on Friday morning. It sounded like they had a great time!

It was a joy to have you girls.... you need to come back very soon!

Jenny had a baby shower a few days before Eloise arrived. Most of her family could be there which was nice. Here she is wearing the hat.
Jeremie's sister and her little baby girl were there.

Nana and Papa's 50th Wedding Anniversary

On Friday August 6th my grandparents celebrated their 50th wedding Anniversary! On Saturday (the 7th) we had a large party for them with almost all of the family and some close friends in attendance. There was about 78 in total people there. We had a professional photographer taking pictures. The pictures should be to us by next week - for now here is a picture of my grandparents giving their speech!
