Jason Catron...Jason is from Nashville, and Nicki thinks it is pretty cool that she actually knows someone who lives in Nashville. She thought it was even cooler that he was at the opening of The Grand Ol' Opry after their floods.
So, Jason is really in Nicki's "cool" book. ha!
Shane Wiebe...He is from our town. He was was a finalist on Canadian Idol. He recently did a cross Canada "motorhome" tour with his wife, Angela...and family. They have an amazing talent.
(Yes, he is in her cool book too...)

His reply? "I don't want you to be here! I want to go with my new friends on the bus!!"

Well, it has been awhile since I have blogged...I think it is time I get back to it! I have had a few people asking me when I was going to start blogging again. Not sure really why I stopped. Guess it was a very busy summer...seems like we never slowed down. Now that the kiddos are back in school, I am finding my "normal" again. So...normal to me, is finding time to write a little bit about what goes on in our world...here on the farm.
Today is our Canadian Thanksgiving. I have a hard time getting into the Thanksgiving mood in October...seems like November is the more "festive" time. But I do think, why not be Thankful more than once a year?! Why not celebrate twice?! Hey...maybe I will be thankful YEAR ROUND! Imagine that?! ha!
As of right now I have a ham cooking in the oven and it smells soooo good! Can't wait to sit down and enjoy it.
I thought I would share with you, on this Thanksgiving Day....Joey's "I Am Thankful For..." paper that he brought home from school on Friday. I think he said it perfectly.
"I Am Thankful For...."
My dad putting me in 4-H.
My 4-H calf helping me out at the fairs.
Clothes for warmth.
A farm for money.
A school for education.
Carrots for health.
Milk for calcium.
Finally, my little brother for surviving his huge fall
out of the hay loft this summer.
-Joey age 9
Carrots for health?! Not sure where he came up with that one...ha! But, good job on your writing Joey. I hope we can all be as creative in our thinking of things to be thankful for. (And...we are also so very thankful that our Ryan survived that very scary fall...)
Wishing each and every one of you a WONDERFUL Canadian Thanksgiving!!

This was our room...we stayed at the Tolovana Inn...We had an oceanfront room, which was PERFECT! We could just sit on the deck and listen to the waves. Loved it. It was a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, with a living room, dining room and kitchen. Very spacious for our loud and rambunctious party of 6!
