The Ceremony!

Well, it is now completely official.  
Today I (Eileen) had my ceremony to become a British citizen.   The ceremony was an interesting British experience where I (Eileen) had to actually sign the national anthem at the end, thankfully only the first verse and in a large group but it was the first time i have ever actually sang it. 

Thank you to all of you who have prayed with us through this process.  It has taken longer than we had expected and cost more than we hoped but we are so thankful it is complete.  

I did spend some time this afternoon in my excitement applying for my very first British passport. 

The question i know some of you are wondering... yes, i did keep my Canadian citizenship.  I am now a dual Citizen.

During the Christmas season we had the privilege of hosting some Moroccan students for a Christmas meal.  It was a fun event for all of us.  We are already looking forward to the next time we can have them over!!

June 24th 1967 - June 24th 2017
A few weeks ago we celebrated Randy & Margie's 50th wedding anniversary.

The pic above shows all six of their kids with all six of their spouses and their 24 grandchildren.  Margie's sister Dail is also in the picture, she was the 'surprise' for the event as she flew over for the week from Wisconsin.

The First Snow

The first snow came this weekend and the kids were pretty excited.  Waking up on a Sunday morning to a blanket of white is idealistic for your first winter.  
We will have a lot of snow this summer and the kids will enjoy it but we are sure as the winter goes on there will be more snow than even children can be excited for so today....  we are enjoying it!!
