Well it has been a very interesting last couple of weeks many of you know this but Abi has a quad ...a kids quad ...made for her size and age ....and she loves to ride it. Well Abi and the ground met and the ground won. Yes Abi broke her arm...but the awful part to this story is not really the accident ...but the trip to the hospital see when Abi arrived at the hospital emergency...the doctor there thought ..hey just a sling was good enough ....well it was not. Our own family doctor when he did get the xray ..had Patty take Abi to the hospital and had a bone specialist called see where the bone had broken ..had move and it was what they call a growing bone ...untreated the arm could of grown crooked. So our little Abi started on to her next big adventure surgery..the Children's Hospital in Vancouver, B.C. was called their bone doctor looked at the x-rays and said the arm needed to be pin so the bone would grow right. So these few pictures I have on this slide show show some of Abi's action packed 8 days since the quad accident. The specialist here in Kamloops was awesome . She is doing great ..and boy this girl has a pain point that is out of this world . Patty and Aunty Candy could not get this girl to take any medication after the surgery...and I mean nothing . The doctors were amazed..she was a little trooper. Now this next slide show is keeping one little girl happy while you wait for everyone to decide what to do next ...she had fun with the camera.....I hope you will enjoy. And thanks to all.

Abi’a has the Camera ...oh nooooo

Well like I said these 2 last weeks have been a challenge ..I am still with out my computer...never and I mean never shop the Future Shop ..and if you do please don't buy their extended warranty package ....boy am I learning ...think I would of learned after my brother-in-laws run in with them.

WOW 30 !!!!!!

We look back in time, Young and very innocent
Seeing the world through your eyes
Memories we hold safe in our heart's
To sometimes unwrap with a smile and the comfort of a sigh
Now our little girl is grown,
And a woman you have become

With the wisdom and strength God has given
Is tranquillity we feel knowing that anything
you will overcome
This strength and warmth of heart we see in you
I know will lay no boundaries
For the world is yours to have sweetheart
To hold in your hands, each moment to appreciate and seize

I am there standing in the shadows
allowing you to grow and learn
Holding onto the knowledge that with your heart,
You will succeed
It is your strength and kind heart about you that shines

As a single ray of sunlight beaming through a cloud
insisting we look higher and higher
To lift us up when we are down
It is this my daughter in you that we do admire.

Happy Birthday

Always remember Sam you are loved so deeply that words can never express that love.
And the Lord loves you that much more .
Have a great year your life changes and your hearts desires became real.

Love from all of us

May you always be warmed by each other's smile,
Always take time to walk and talk a while,
Always know deep down you're each other's best friend,
And enjoy the kind of love that grows and knows no end.
Wishing you an 'always' kind of love!

Happy Anniversary
God Bless you Both
Love from all us
Thanks to Olivia for paper and elements used (aka Mrs Miles)

Well our daughter Patty DID IT!

She's been working very hard to achieve Grade 12 - not with a GED certificate, but the Dogwood, this means FULL HONOURS! As well as being a wife, and Mom to two very active young girls, she's also had to be a part-time student. Now she can proudly say she's DONE it - and with a great grade average. What an witness for her daughters as they grow and pursue an education.

WAY TO PATTY! Now new educational doors and jobs are open to you - but know first and foremost you are also doing the most IMPORTANT job of all - raising your beautiful family and it shows - Abi and Hannah love their time with you.

I hope you like this layout... as YOUR Mom, I've been waiting for this day for a LONG time - and I hope you know that all of us are SO very proud of you!
