A Precious Heartbeat

Yesterday, we were able to hear one of the most amazing sounds in the world; our unborn baby's heartbeat. Come sometime near the end of September, Lord willing, there will be another precious little one at our house! :) We are very happy and excited.:) God is good.

For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Psalm 139 13:14cff

A Girl and Her Daddy

This picture makes me smile so I thought I would post it. :) It was taken last month when we were in Florida visiting my family. Abigail loved the beach. It's so sweet to watch a little one's wonder when they discover something new.

Roll Up The Rim!

Look what I won! :) Was it ever exciting to roll up the rim of my Tim's cup and see......

....I had won a hundred dollar Tim's card! The odds of winning one is: 1 in 11,434; Not bad eh? :)

Here is a little about Tim's if you are not familiar with it. :) Here in Canada, Tim Horton's is the largest food service operator; there are actually more of them up here in there are McDonald's! They are everywhere, and a good thing too, because we go to one just about every time we are in town (everyone knows they have the best coffee;). I actually don't drink much coffee, but I do enjoy their hot chocolates, cappuccinos, and ice caps. Every year for a month, they give away prizes, if you buy a hot drink from Tim Horton's you get to roll up the rim on their cup to see if you won anything. It's always fun when we know "Roll Up the Rim" is on:). It was pretty neat to win something this big:)!
