The movie has almost disappeared from the theatre, and the crowds too. Just minutes before it was about to begin, we were the only two in the theatre. At the last minute 5 others slipped in making it a grand total of 7. That works for us because we don't like crowded theatres anyway.
When the final credits started rolling there were only 4 of us left in the theatre. One man on crutches and the person accompanying him had difficulty navigating the stairs. They were very busy trying to exit the theatre. The music Give Me Money started playing and so did the dancing, as in my beloved and I! It was awesome. It was fun. We were laughing and having a wonderful time together. It is the best time we have had together since I can't remember when. Just breaking out and having fun together. I tell you I am lucky to have such a great man to go through the journey with. Thanks for the dance honey!

Signed by each child in their own unique way-what a treasure!
You know I really wasn't looking forward to celebrating yet another year. The days of party hats and balloons and cake and ice cream have gone the way of the dodo bird in my life, but I want to tell everyone that I feel well and truly loved. Tell you that I am ever so grateful for all of the love and warm wishes, but most of all for your friendship. You made it a glorious day. Thank you one and all. How did I get so lucky?

I have always lamented the fact that our daughter April wasn't born on my birthday. We missed it by by a mere 7 plus hours. Ordinarily in most families it wouldn't be such a big deal but you see April's sisters were both born on their Daddy's birthday and like in a game of Yatzee, if it had been so, we'd have had what you call a "full house".
Today, in a round about related sort of way, that has changed. April's sister-in-law, Jolene and b-i-l, Dave welcomed Ella into this great big world of wonders. So darling little Ella welcome to the family-you chose a mighty fine day to make your appearance. Can't wait to meet you face to face. In the meantime, you take good care of your momma and we'll see you soon.
Welcome Miss Ella!

Today is our daughter April's Birthday. It was a sunny spring Saturday afternoon 4:44 to be precise. We fell in love with her from the moment we laid eyes on her. She is our treasure and we love her so.
April, Daddy and I wish you a very happy birthday and blessings and best wishes for a joyous new year!

As we were driving eastbound I spied a firetruck up on the corner of the highway and the main road out of Ladner.
This is what we saw:
A case of: Hay No-Off We Go!
PS: Hay April, err I mean, Hey April, please send me copies of the pictures you took of us today!
