We’re grandparents again

The problem with having a grandchild that is not on social media means you can’t plaster pictures of the little one all over the internet. However, as we love our kids and their kids maybe it’s enough to say we are grandparents again and invite you to come see us and we’ll show you pictures!

Congratulations to Philip and Amanda and big sister Carlyle and big brother Fitz!

We love you all! We can’t wait to hold Paige!  Paige Margaret Waters.

An Alberta weekend

It’s been almost 10 years since we left Calgary. An entire decade has passed since we received a phone call to tell us that we would be moving from Calgary as part of a pilot program to introduce the roll out of area commander. Wendy and I would later that summer move to Edmonton but initially, we were told it might be Alberta or Ontario. In the end, it was Edmonton.

Our time in Calgary was wonderful and seven years at Glenmore Temple were some of our favourite years of ministry. Returning to the platform this weekend was like coming home, and I enjoyed every minute.

While we were there we connected with Phil, Amanda, Carlyle and Fitz. The kids are growing quickly and Fitz now scurries around the floor like a soldier crawling on his belly to the front line! He’s a happy boy with energy and curiosity. Carlyle is smart and loves to spell, colour, make crafts and cuddle with her little brother. Dave and Sue graciously allowed us to crash their home for a few hours and share a meal with us.

We did get out to Canmore and celebrated Phil’s 30th birthday by his making us an amazing roast beef dinner! It was delicious.

It’s great to be with family, even briefly.

Amanda Jean’s birthday

God has blessed our family with two lovely gals who married our boys. Today is Amanda’s birthday and we wish her the best and brightest of days. She’s expecting their second child and I thought it would be wonderful to make this the BIRTHday….!!

God’s in the timing of that child’s birth…

So happy birthday to Amanda – we hope you have a wonderful day, know today more fully than ever our love and our prayers for many days of joy, love and laughter!

We love your smile!
