We are about to have our third Christmas here in Nova Scotia. Although I am in a much better place than I was this time last year, I still to this day get an ache in my heart for my métis family. I would so love to be back there for a Christmas. Luckily geography is the only thing between us, as I am still in contact with people back there.
We didn't do a family picture this year, and for that reason I did not send out Christmas cards. I am been quite discouraged with photography here, and a recent cancellation of a family photo shoot has left me just not wanting to do anymore. Maybe my New Years resolution will be to do one of those 365 photo challenges.
Boy, I am a big downer right now. Feel free to move on to pictures of kitties or screaming goats.
In other news I have been invited to be a part of the volunteer committee in the local community centre. That really excites me as it took a year to be part of it. It's a small knit community here and you pretty much have to know someone to get you in. Luckily I did. I was a Santas helper for the local breakfast with Santa and have already been asked to help with Canada day and next Christmas. The joke is once they get you, they never let you go.
Rob and I are both really happy in our jobs. I have finally found a place where I belong and rob works for a local company. He is now the head of the occupational health and safety committee and the hr department. Well, he jokes that he is but there are only 3 of them in the entire company. :)
The boys are fantastic. Colby currently in junior high and I am currently drinking a bottle of wine each night to help us both survive it. Joey is getting taller by the minute and is blessed with my beautiful smile. My child will be financing our dentist's child through college. I may have to drink more wine.
Mom is doing quite well. Her and I have started a small bakery business out of the kitchen. If you have ever had my moms homemade bread you will understand why we have been very busy.
I can't believe Christmas is only a few days away. We have a huge surprises for the boys so I will definitely be posting!
