Well today Brad turned 28. It's hard to beleive that i met him over 6 years ago. I remember celebrating his 23rd b-day with him and that doesn't seem like that long ago. Last night i took him out to Memory's, it's the same restaurant we went to for our one year anniversary. My parents met up with us, and we had a great evening. Our meals were all so good. We just sat and talked for over 3 hours. So often in North America were always rushed, were in a hurry for just about everything we do. It was nice to take our time and really fellowship, laugh and enjoy the atmosphere and good food! Today i had to work so my sister took Brad out for lunch so he wouldn't eat alone on his b-day. They came to Smitty's and sat in my section, i got all the girls to come and sing the good old b-day song. Let's just say his face went pretty red, and Brad doesn't get embarrassed that often. It was a good weekend and now were off to bible study. Here are some pictures of our great food and of course great company. Happy birthday honey, i love you more than i can often express! I seriously think and beleive that i snagged the greatest man alive. xoxoxo

Dress up day...

Today at work we were all MADE to dress up for Halloween.It was actually a lot of fun. The day was full of laughter, and strange looks from customers. I was a nurse, my $ 9.99 cents costume from Superstore did me well. When i orginally bought my coustume it didn't look as short on the model in the picture, but when i put it on it was another story. I was a little nervous at first that i was going to hang out of it, or that some old man would stare at my inapropiately. Luckily all the customers thought it was really cute and the comment of the day was "geesh all of sudden i'm not feeling to well, i think i might need a nurse." It was funny for the first hour of work, but by hour seven i just wanted to get home. One comment that was especailly funny was this 70 year old man telling me that i sure made his pulse rise. He quickly got a slap from his dear wife who was sitting beside him. (Whoopsee i hope i didn't get him into too much trouble) The good thing about dressing a little scandolous once in awhile is that you make great tips. :) All in all it was an entertaining day.

I'm Lucky!

I just have to say that i'm a lucky girl to be married to such an incredible man. This is Brad studying hard. Right now he is trying to get ahead of the game as we are heading to PEURTO VALLARTA in a week. Were both really excited to get away. Both my sisters and there kids and my parents will be joining us. Oh ya... back to why Brad is incredible... even in the midst of his busyness he always makes time for me. Whether he asks me to go for a walk or out for coffee he makes the effort. He also does laundry, vacuums and keeps the house looking spic and span!

So.... Brad, thank-you for all you do, i'm very proud of you and love you very much!

On Friday night my sister Danielle and brother-in-law Benji and neice Katy Faith came from San Jose for the week. It was Brad and I's first time meeting her. She is 9 weeks and has the bluest eyes ever. She is absolutely precious and i have fallen in love with her. Every chance i get i'm over at my mom and dad's house playing, cuddling and just staring at her. Babies truely are a gift, i just love watching them. It amazes me how God has made each of us so intricate and that not one of us our the same. It is incredible... i have to say that i'm exctied to be a mommy. Don't worry not for a few more years.. i know i know! :) Last night we all went to my sister Lauren's house for a third turkey dinner. It was soooo good, i need to get back on the tread mill pretty quick here! :) Here are some pictures of the evening. It was nice to finally have the whole family together.

My Wife

Samanatha has been very faithful in updating our blog over the last few months, but in the hundreds of comments we recieve, many of you are asking "when is brad going to write?" As most of you know life on the praries is very busy with cleaning bugs of your car and the six months of snow shoveling there isn't much time to sit down. Luckily I married an experienced prarie girl who can do all that stuff for me, but seriously I am very blessed to be married to such a wonderful and hard working person. Samantha has been busy over the last few months, turning our house into a wonderful home. Believe me I can take no credit as she is the first to so graciously and humbly tell me of all that she has done!:) She just finished painting our office/second bedroom a nice red colour. It's called Louisianna hot sauce. We both love it and hope to eventually turn it into a guest bedroom and then move the office down to the basement. With the training from my wonderful mother in law, Samantha has decorated and painted pretty much every room in the house. As seen in the picture above her sense of style is not just in decorating the home but she personally exibits tremendous style and beauty. I am very thankful for her and love her very much.

Thanksgiving get together...

Last night Brad and i headed to Caronport to Dave and Jenelle Hindereger's house. They invited us over for a turkey dinner. Jenelle and Dave were just married in June, and it was her first time cooking a thanksgiving supper. I have to say that it was soooo good. We had mashed potato's, yams, cooked carrots, stuffing, turkey, gravy yorkshire pudding,cranberry orange sauce and more. Jenelle also served itilian soda's to start, which was a great idea. She made them with cranberry juice, gingerale and whipping cream. The whipping cream had a little sugar and vanilla in it. It was delightful. You should really give them a try. For dessert we had pumkin pie and homemade mini cinnamon buns and coffee.

We did a lot of laughing as Brad and Dave have similar humor, and when you get two guys together like that it can get crazy!!! Jenelle and i had to keep them in line.. most of the evening. :)

Before we went over to their house, i showed Brad the house in Caronport that i grew up in. I lived in that house from grade 3 till grade10. One thing that i loved about our house was the backyard. The backyard was huge and it led out into a beautiful alley full of trees and a little path. As kids we constantly played back there, and wrote our initials in so many trees. You know best friends forever kind of things. Here are some pictures of the day! Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

City Wide Awakening

Last night was really encourging so i wanted to share a story about the city of Moose Jaw! A couple of weeks ago Brad met a guy named Will. Will and his wife Melanie have a real heart for the youth of the city and decided to start a ministry. The ministry is in the parking lot of the Church of God (where Brad and I attend) Last night was the kick off for the city, the desire of Will and his wife is that many youth and whoever else hears or walks by will come to know the Lord. Brad and I went last night to help where we could and met some neat people.
There was a big stage set up and a music team(which Will headed up) and a speaker. There was a man named Phil who shared his testimony, he was heavy into drugs, drinking ect. and only became a Christian 5 days ago. There was also a guest speaker from Wisconsin who shared his testimony. I was personally touched last night, to be outside in God's creation and presence, and to see people give their lives to the Lord.

I never imagined that Brad and i would be in Moose Jaw together outside in a church parking lot praising the Lord. I'm thankful that Will is following through with the vision that God has given him. The Church of God is right off main street, so i'm sure everyone driving by was wondering what on earth was going on. (As the music was quite loud) I'm excited already about the next one, they are having City wide once a month. At the end of the night there was free hot chocoalte and brownies, which topped of our already lovely evening! GOD IS GOOD!!!!
