Each year Twyford High School (Caleb & Eden's school) put on an amazing production.  This year the chosen production was Annie!  Both Caleb and Eden wanted to be part of it but in very different ways. 

Eden was an orphan, an all singing, all dancing orphan.  She loved every minute of it.  The costumes, the singing, rehearsals every bit of it.  At the end of the week she was very tired but glad to have participated.  It was hard to get good pictures during the show but we did get a couple of Eden.....

I think Eden took this one herself.....

One happy orphan!!

Caleb wasn't as keen to be part of the cast but worked endlessly on the tech crew.  He worked tirelessly, even the weekend before the production being at the school all day on both Saturday on Sunday.  He loved every minute of it and is really enjoying being part of the technical crew.   He managed to put in all these hours in alongside studying for the exams he was having during that time.  

The Broken Ankle

The Broken Ankle

Having had a wonderful, relaxing family vacation in Canada with our family over Christmas we wanted to make sure we fit as much in as we could.  Aaron, Caleb, Eden & Nathan all had to head back to London so Zachariah stayed in Ottawa to enjoy a bit more winter life...

As we were heading back to London on the Sunday it seemed fitting to have one last thing before getting on the plane.  So Saturday night included 'Night Skiing'..... or should i say 'Night Falling'!!

When I fell, I actually thought i had only hurt myself a little, i wasn't able to make it down the hill and had to go down with the Ski Patrol... my sister enjoyed this event.  She was the one standing their laughing, pointing and taking pictures.   It was all in fun and games and in reality we were all trying to laugh through it sure that it was actually just a bad sprain.  After a few hours it seemed that maybe I was wrong and a trip to the ER might be necessary.  

At the ER they confirmed that actually I had broken my inner ankle.  Tracy (my sister) and I had lots of fun waiting at the hospital for my new accessory!

The first of apparently many ankle casts...

I thought if i tried to make the picture look pretty it wouldn't seem so frustrating.

We thought this would be a short lived accessory but actually the pictures above are the first cast and I am still currently in the 2nd cast and am still not allowed to have any weight put on it.  We are praying that after the next appointment i will at the very least have a walking boot.

I am hoping in no time at all to be out walking again.  I am also thinking i might give up skiing....

Zachariah's First Cake

Zachariah turned one on January 17th!  He celebrated it at his Auntie Tracy's house in Ottawa.  This Picture is of Zachariah enjoying his first cake..... we thought he would like his own cupcake and although he thinks he ate it all by himself, i wish i had a picture of the floor!!
