Post 125, playing again!

I added a little more color to the picture. I don't know if it does any more for it or not. Let me know!

playing with pictures some more

Tina wanted me to try this with this picture. I "colorized" two items in this picture. I think if they weren't blue they would stand out more against the gray. Let me know what you think!

Playing with pictures

Just thought I would try to play with some pictures and make a collage. Not perfect, but that is what practice is for.

A few more Jordan pictures!

Grandma hadn't seen her baby for more than a week and I wasn't working today, so she asked me to go and get him for a while so she could see him. I went to the daycare where he goes and picked him up this afternoon. They told me he wasn't acting too chipper, so that is why he doesn't look too perky in the some of the pictures, but then he wanted to play with the camera and have his picture taken. He loves to see himself after you take the picture. He was fine after a while and didn't act sick at all, he does have some cough and congestion though. We met Jeffrey and Tina for supper afterward and then we all separated and went home. Enjoy the pictures.

Some Jordan time!

This is some of Justin's training time for Jordan. He told him today that if he keeps on practicing like this when he is 3 he will take him golfing. He is really getting the hang of this.

Home again, home again!

We arrived home on Saturday afternoon from Dayton Convention. We had a real good time with Donnie and Wendy, Aunt Marilyn, Esther, and Debbie. The convention was very good, saw some old friends and enjoyed the services. On the way home, we stopped at the Waterloo Outlet Stores and I was able to find a pair of shoes at not too high a price. I need comfortable shoes for work since I am on my feet most of my 9 1/2 hour shift five days a week. The last shoes have only lasted about 2-3 months before they cracked on the bottom. When this happens, my feet get wet when it rains and then I am not happy. Hopefully, that won't happen as quick with a better quality shoe. Time will tell.

I had just barely finished my blog about Easter, when there was a comment left. Rachel asked who was leaving comments that quick. Well, we found out and it wasn't a very nice thing that was there. It was actually quite shocking that someone is that sick to attach stuff to peoples blogs. Anyway, I deleted it and then I put the comment moderation active, so now I will have to check every comment before I allow them to be on my blog. I don't like that because it takes some people forever to put your comments up on their blog. Anyway, I will do my best not to be so late with comments if you comment on my blog. Hope you understand.

Easter Day!

Happy Easter everyone! We had a wonderful day today. We were in church this morning celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead to the living so that we also can have life in HIM! After church we had a nice family dinner and as you can see we had a special little guest there for dinner. We had several other family members here for dinner also. Donald and Wendy Straight, Esther Powell, Larry and Sharon Major and daughter Laura, Jeffrey and Tina McCallus and son Jordan, along with Rachel, Justin and myself. We had a lovely time of eating and visiting. After dinner, Jordan got his Easter clothes back on and we took a few pictures of him and his parents. He is such a funny little guy. We just love him dearly. We are leaving on Monday to go to Dayton, Ohio for the 2009 Inter-church Holiness Convention. We are going with several other family members and friends. If you are there, look for us if you want, we will tell you all about our grandson.

Justin is home, finally!

Justin finally arrived at the Ottawa International Airport at 1:15 am on Friday April 10th. We arrived at home close to 3:30 am and I had to be to work at 9:30 am. He had missed his original flight and had to be rescheduled to a longer, later flight. He had a wonderful time in England and also made a short trip to Paris, France. While he was there, he made a very major and important decision for life. He asked the beautiful young lady that is in this picture with him to be his wife. Of course, she accepted and agreed to be his wife. They are planning a wedding for sometime in 2010. We are so happy for them. Stacy is a wonderful young lady that really loves the Lord and loves Justin too. She will be a wonderful addition to our family and we welcome her with love.
