Back to normal

I don't know about you, but I always find the first few days after the Christmas holidays, rather slow moving.    It is always hard seeing everyone go back to regular routines and the house feels so quiet.

Yesterday we celebrated Rebekah's birthday, which made me realize that it's a year since I started this blog. Time sure flies.  We had a lovely evening with friends and family at a local restaurant.  Twenty two years seem to have flown!  Here she is with her Alex.

Alex flew home to Winnipeg for Christmas and New Year, and as an early birthday gift for Rebekah, we flew her out to Winnipeg to surprise Alex for New Year.  Here they are on New Year's Eve, just before leaving for the church dance.

 We are enjoying watching them together.  

Here are some more photos taken last night

Rebekah with the Larson kids.  We have been friends for many years and they have grown up together.

Norah had fun at the party and was an angel.

Grandma & Grandad enjoying themselves!

Andrew & Kelsi

I promised that I would post photos of the quilt I made for Norah.

The top left hand corner has a little frog prince applique which is so cute.

I am really pleased with how it turned out.

Well, back to the regular routine now.  Exercising and healthy eating are still on the bill for this year.  We want to maintain our weight loss and feel good.  I am not a maker of resolutions, but I do set goals, and will work on a few this year as well.  Hope you are settling back into "normal" life again.
