Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow.....

Oh, the weather outside is frightful;
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go...
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

Maybe someday I'll be able to sing the rest of the song :) But for now I'll leave it at that (heehee).

For some strange reason, I'm really excited about the snow falling this year!
Here in Manitoba, Canada you usually have 2 options, either you hate the snow or love the snow.
I love the snow.

I mean, how much fun is it to step outside and be the first person to put tracks in the freshly laid snow.
How much fun is it peek out the window and see little snow angels and snowmen made all over the yard.
How much fun it is to breathe in the fresh air that winter brings!
And one of my favourite things about snow and winter is that,
Our house is always so much more cozy in the winter time!

Anyhow. Our days seem to FINALLY be slowing down.... at least somewhat :) The busyness has changed from the "fall busy" to the "winter busy". For some reason the "winter busy" is so much more relaxing!
Yesterday we went to a Ernie Haas and Signature Sound concert. Our WHOLE family was able to go because everyone 18 and under was FREE!!
We did some shopping before hand, and of course whenever we go somewhere with our whole family.... well let me just say that we do not go by unnoticed! I told mom as we were leaving a store that I had forgotten how fun it was to bring ALL of us into the city! :)

The concert was GREAT! We arrived early, so we got good seats :)

Hope you all have an AMAZING weekend!!!

Happy Birthday Andrew!!

2 years ago today, our little miracle Andy was born. 
Being an Auntie has been one of the greatest experiences that I have had (in my ahem... young life :). 
I love Andy to bits and pieces and I am overflowing with gratefulness to God for allowing us to keep this precious one.

Have a very happy birthday little buddy! Your Auntie Jenny loves you VERY much!

Megan made this video a couple of months after Andy came home. Whenever I watch it, I'm in awe of what God has brought Josh, Becka and Andrew through. I thought I'd share it with you all.
