A Year In Review – Part 2



Even though the summer months are so busy work-wise for us, we still managed to get lots of fun in!

In July, 2 months after the wedding, I explain why I was not ready to have children yet.

Canada day was celebrated and then an all nighter happened because Ryan and I had to go into work! Yuck! I realized that weekend that I wasn’t as young as I use to be.

We also took two special kids for a day at the water park for celebrating them completing and passing their school year!

Ryan and I decided to host out annual pool party in August this year since things were very busy with wedding stuff at the beginning of the summer! We had a blast (as usual) at the pool party! This year we really started to notice how many kids there are now!

The middle of August Jill, Bekk, Ryan and I boarded a train to Toronto for a fun filled weekend! We ate out, relaxed and went to see a Toronto Bluejays baseball game!

Ryan and I attended to beautiful wedding of friends Shawn and Vee! We had a wonderful celebrating the happy couple and were soooo excited to be snacking on Lonestar chips and salsa at the wedding! (AMAZING!)

That same weekend we also had a very special farm tour! We opened our doors and invited people to take a full tour of our operation!

At the end of September, I ran my very first 5K race. The army run was so crowded which made the race very difficult but I completed it! I was very excited to accomplish this goal and run for such a wonderful cause!

At the beginning of October a very special boy was baptized in our church. Tanner is the son of friends Ricky and Stacy!

For Halloween, I took you down memory lane of Halloween costumes past!



The beginning of September, Jill and I headed to the VERY busy Crazy Horse bar to see a performance of Dallas Smith and Chad Brownlee!

Jill and I also played together as partners in a Euchre tournament! With only one week of practice my partner and I won the whole tournament and the cash prize! We were so excited!

The beginning of December, our home was all ready for Christmas because we were opening our doors for the 2012 Christmas House tour! We had a wonderful time showing off all of our hard work from house renovations!

We ended the exciting year with a wonderful Christmas and New year with family and friends!

  3. Joomla allows web design companies to meet this challenge by providing powerful content management capabilities to websites.
    One of the biggest mistakes that you're likely to run into with a new designer is that they tend to use a lot of very bold colors, which often tend to clash with each other. The best way to learn the intricacies of CSS is by example, so let's jump right in
    with something basic.
