Not much Happening

I know these pictures are not the most exciting. But it has been a while since I have posted anything and thought I should post something!! We've had cold weather and lots of snow. The snow is up to my hips on the level still. The kids have been doing school and just our everyday things. We are running out of places to put the snow. The blade on the quad only goes so high. With the drifting, Curtis has to plow the snow into the caldasac and let the grader take of it.
Our neighbors came over for supper one night. We don't see them much during the winter so it was time for a visit.
This is the drift out the basement door. Curtis shoveled a path for Ranger to get out and go pee. It's much easier to let him out downstairs.


This is one of the moose who has come back for a visit. So far she has left my raspberries alone. Ranger barks during the night because she is too close for his liking. Russell and Chloe watch out their bedrooms windows. This picture was taken through Russell's window.
Baking bread as usual. Curtis and Chloe think their life is not complete without homemade bread.
I go more for the granola.
Here are some gluten free cookies for Russell. He is managing quite well and eats limited grains. His system seems to be handling a little bit. I make gluten free pizza crust so he enjoys the finer things of life!! I don't care for the texture of gluten free bread so I have not made any. Every once in a while he has a piece of regular bread. I like to watch him take the first bite. He enjoys it soooooo much and loves the taste.

We are leaving for Seattle, Washington on Sunday. Curtis has taken 2 weeks off work which usually never happens. It will be nice to have him with us during the day. The kids have 2 weeks off for spring break. We have worked ahead a bit so we don't have to dive right into the books as soon as we get home. Curtis' 2 cousins and their families life in Abbotsford, BC. We will stay there for a few days to visit and let the kids play with their cousins before we head off to the States. We will be in Seattle for 5 days and take lots of sights in. It's not a tropical vacation but there is green grass and the air will smell good. I will try to post pictures while there. I am looking forward taking pictures of the kids without all their winter gear on.

After Seattle, we are Southern Alberta bound to celebrate my Father in Laws 70th birthday. The actual day of his birthday is March 20 but Crystal, Alvin and Reid are coming from Manitoba and I think Wes and Lana will be there too. It will be nice to see everyone, even though we just saw them at Christmas!! After this visit, we won't be seeing the Manitoba family till next Christmas.
