Winter March??

Who knew we could get so much snow in March???? It started snowing on a Friday afternoon(March 7th, I believe) and didn't stop until Saturday evening. On the Saturday afternoon, we decided we simply had to be out in the snowy blustery weather. So we donned our coats, mittens, and toques and made a 20 minute trek, (which usually takes less than 10 minutes) to my parents house to see how they were weathering the storm. These pictures were taken by my mom just before we stepped inside for a nice hot cup of tea!

Well folks, it's been a little while, ok, a long while, but I'm back at it! I know that those who are truly dedicated to checking out our blog will always come back regardless of whether I post something or not. Ok, so that's a little far fetched:-)I thought I better post something to keep you all happy!

Well life is flying by, and taking us along with it. We just celebrated nine blissful months of marriage on March 2nd. It's hard to believe it's been that long; seems like yesterday!

We're both busy with work which keeps us out of trouble. Ben is slaving away at the cemetery learning all that he possibly can about the business. We're seriously looking into buying the business(it's a privately owned cemetery) sometime in the next year or so provided all things go according to plan. Quite an undertaking, but we're looking forward to the challenge. So, if you're looking for somewhere to invest your hard earned dollars, just give us a holler!
I am still working at Word & Deed Ministries and am enjoying seeing all the growth and progress happening from day to day. It's very rewarding work, and with God's blessing, we can truly see the fruit of our labours.

"The house" is still needing a lot of TLC, which we give it regularly:-) Things are slowing changing as time and resources allow. We've just recently started renovating the bathroom upstairs. As I speak, Ben is up there hammering away! We're also hoping to give the place a face lift outside this summer. A good coat of paint will do wonders for this wonderful old house.

And dear family and friends, the time has come again for us to end this post. Don't worry, the next post will hopefully not be far behind:-)
