The new job is working out really well. I trained for a couple of days, went to work for a week, and then we left for a family vacation on Saturday April 21, lol !We drove down to Kelowna and spent the night at Neil's brothers place. Then got up the next day, had breakfast with his brother, his cousin, cousins wife, and their little girl who is way to cute!!!

Left to right is Josh, his wife Mellisa, their little girl Autumn, and Neil's brother Steve. Then we headed off for Langley to visit my family.We had a good time while we were there. We took the kid's to Capilano Suspension Bridge. I do NOT do heights very well. It took a while for me to cross the bridge. I hung on for dear life every step of the way. It sways and moves with all the other people on it.

The scenery was just beautiful! A lot of people looked at the pictures I took and thought the one of Neil and I was a nice picture. I am actually clinging to him out of love, and fear of being up on all these little mini bridges once we got across the big one, LOL !

Oops, I guess I put the right one kinda crooked, and can't fix it because it keeps deleting the picture...LOL! There are a lot of mini bridges to preserve the forest floor. Tree houses are everywhere.

We also took the kid's to Science World,that was a lot of fun. We took the skytrain when we went there. I will post pictures of that in the next blog. Of course I had to go get a picture of G.M Place. Go Canuck's!!!! That's another post. I took Ashley to a women's workout gym where my mom works, met my new Uncle in White Rock, and we took in a new pub that opened called Dublin Crossing. I have a lot of pictures from there as well. Eventually I'll get around to posting all the pictures. Now it's time to finish cleaning the house, do homework ( I have school tonight, lol ) and off to work tomorow. That also will be yet another post. Take care all and many Blessing's your way for a productive, relaxing week.......

This Is To Sweet For Words!!!

A six-year-old boy told his father he wanted to marry the little girl across the street. The father, being modern and well-schooled in handling children, hid his smile behind his hand.
"That's a serious step," he said. "Have you thought it out completely?"
"Yes," his young son answered. "We can spend one week in my room and the next in hers. It's right across the street, so I can run home if I get scared of the dark." "How about transportation?" the father asked. "I have my wagon, and we both have our tricycles," the little boy answered.
The boy had an answer to every question the father raised.Finally, in exasperation, his dad asked, "What about babies? When you're married, you're liable to have babies, you know." "We've thought about that, too," the little boy replied.
"We're not going to have babies. Every time she lays an egg, I'm going to step on it!"

So we went for a drive in the truck yesterday, and then went over to Curtis and Michelle's. Michelle had to work last night, so we were comparing the boy's ! Anyway, Neil's truck was squealing slightly so the boy's popped the hood. Broken alternater bracket was the cause. So Curtis fashioned a new bracket and Neil took the old one off. Sounds easy right? Nope. When Neil was unscrewing the old bracket, a screw snapped in half and left a very tight stuck old screw still attached to the alternater.

Hmmmmm, now what. Well, turns out the bracket in Curtis's old blue chev would fit perfectly. So while the boys drilled out the broken screw out of the white chev, Ashley took the bracket out of the blue one.

All is being supervised by the proffesional of course.

In the end the truck was working squeal free, and Ashley was right in her element. She would rather be under the hood of a truck pulling out parts and fixing things instead of cooking or cleaning. She can do it all very well, but this was just way more fun. Brad was out there as well, but got sidetracked and went and kept the dog company. Vancouver won the game in overtime against Dallas for a score of 2-1. Awesome. We had a good weekend, hope everyone else had a good one as well. I start my new job this week fulltime. Training for me is over. I think I know what I'm doing, lol ! Blessing your way for a wonderful work week. Enjoy!

I finally figured out how to find pictures on my computer saved from our new camera!!! The above are pictures of me and Brad coloring eggs, I love doing that!!We had so much fun. Ashley took the pictures.

The other 2 are of Neil fixing his truck over at Curtis and Michelle's, and Neil making his homemade pea soup! Yummy! Well, I'm off to take the kids shopping. Got a lot of running around to do today. Tonight we are going over to a friends house to watch game #2 of the Canuck's playoff. Hopefully this one won't go into 4 overtime like the other night! Have a great weekend everyone!

I started training for a new job yesterday. It is a car rental place. There is also a dealership on the same lot.Today I go back for day 2.It's a little overwhelming because I have to know so much when I'm answering the phones to take reservations for cars. I have no clue what I'm doing! LOL! My friend has such faith in me over there, I really don't want to let her down. I think once I get the hang of asking the right questions and get to know all about the insurance company's, and policy's I'll be fine. Until that happens, someone is bound to get a car for a week at a 2 day rate from me , I know it! The customers will love that, the boss,mmmmm, not so much! lol ! Everbody is so friendly in this place, I know I'm going to love working there. I still have to finish my old job working nights. Those customers don't want me to leave, but they know I have to. This new job pay's more, and I'm not dealing with drunk's!!!! Yippee! Anyway off I go to get redy. The Canuck's start the playoffs tonight so everybody is all excited. Go Vancouver!!!

Happy Birthday to my son Bradley!! He's 10 today. It's hard to get a hold of friends to come over and do something this holiday because no one is around. He has a friend coming for cake present's, movies, and a sleep over. I have to work tonight, but Neil will do something with the boy's. Happy Birthday baby!!!

^^^^Thought this was so cute. ^^^

Well, I guess the reason for 'Good Friday' goes down through history as a translation difference.
It is likely that the name "Good Friday" came from the earlier English name, "Godes Friday," meaning "God's Friday." In much the same way as "God be with ye" was shortened to "goodbye," so did "Godes Friday" become "Good Friday."

Thank you to mom who sent me that. It is also on her blog.

So I had an interuption to my day a few days ago. There was a knock at my door around 9:30 in the morning. So without looking out the window, I answered it. Thinking it was a friend.
Two ladies in black wanted to talk to me about 'Him'. Handing me a pamphlet, they asked if I wanted to join them in the 'celebration' of the 'Anniversary' of 'His' death...?...As you well know by now they were Jehovah's at my door. Now, I really am the wrong person for these poor unsuspecting women to run into at 9:30 in the a.m. and proceed to talk to me about 'Him'.
'Him" has a name, I said. 'His' name is Jesus Christ. And furthermore, I don't 'celebrate the 'anniversary' of 'His' death. I joy in the fact that He rose again. That is the celebration. He died for our sin's, I am aware of that. But, that is not a happy celebration in my mind.
I never really fully understood why it is called 'Good Friday' when Jesus was crucified. It seem's like such a horrific act to be called good. I know there are a lot of prayer services held with readings from the Gospel with giving accounts of the events leading up to the crucifixion. Death itself was conquered by the resurection of Christ on the third day.

Next, what happened on that day that made all the rabbits go so crazy that they started to lay egg's? I personally have never noticed a bunny hatch an egg that was filled with chocolate.Let alone walk with baskets. My brother had a bunny. Unless he had some secret underground shop with the squirrels, I never witnessed egg's come out his bum! We did notice lot's of little round 'pellets', but I don't think they were chocolate. Anyway, that was just a quick little blerb for the day. I will return later with something a little more fascinating than bunny's's pooping eggs and chocolate.

One day a farmer’s donkey fell into an abandoned well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was too old and the well needed to be covered up anyway; so it just wasn’t worth it to him to try to retrieve the donkey.
He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They each grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. Realizing what was happening, the donkey at first cried and wailed horribly.
Then, a few shovel-fulls later, he quieted down completely. The farmer peered down into the well, and was astounded by what he saw. With every shovel-full of dirt that hit his back, the donkey would shake it off and take a step up on the new layer of dirt.
As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off, to the shock and astonishment of everyone.
The Moral: Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to stop wailing, and not let the dirt bury you, but to shake it off and take a step up. Each one of our troubles is a stepping-stone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.
