Catch up

It's been about a month since I last posted on my blog and life just seems to have been very busy lately.  I do have a good excuse though.  Jan 19th Rebekah & Alex got engaged!!  He had asked Wendell the Monday night prior for her hand in marriage and we had to keep the secret for the week until he gave her a ring in Montreal at our temple on the 19th.  It was a long week let me tell you!!
Here is the beautiful solitaire he chose for her.  She is so happy and we have been busy planning a wedding for July 4th.

They will be married in the Toronto temple and we will have a reception here in Ottawa two nights later and then there will also be one a week later in Winnipeg (Alex's hometown).

Our little Norah is fast approaching her first birthday next month.  We had her overnight on Friday as Kelsi wanted to surprise Andrew with a night away.  I will post some photos of our weekend later, but in the meantime, here are a couple which were taken a week or so ago.

We had a real cold snap and Mom had put TWO snowsuits on her this day and she looked like the Michelin man!!

Oh Norah, we love you!


  1. Hi Julie,

    Congratulations on your daughter's engagement; what an exciting time for your family!! The young couple looks very happy!

    Your granddaughter is just precious -- I love her pink snowsuit. :) I hope to be lucky enough to have a grandchild someday.
