Yes, I am finished the quilt I've been slowly working on for the past year! It feels very good to have if done and hanging on the wall. It warms up the room and fills in the spot where our piano was. I'm pretty happy with it overall - I learned a lot along the way. But...if a beginner quilter ever comes to me wanting to do something like this for their first big project I think I would deter them from a pattern as intricate as this. :)

The first snow

Yesterday morning we woke up to the first snow of the year. It was just a little bit but the kids played in it for a couple of hours. So much fun!

We said goodbye to my parents yesterday. It's always hard to say goodbye but we had a really nice week with them. A few pictures...
Tessa remembered Opa and Oma from the summer time and gave them lots of snuggles over the week :)
We went to St. Jacobs on Thursday. One lonely horse and buggy. It was a pretty cold day to be driving far in that.
We spent some time at the lego store for the kids after we walked all through the market
On Friday we went to pick Conrad up from school so Dad and Mom could see the University.

Look what I found!

Or, rather, "who I found"...

After I had put the kids to bed I went down to the basement for a while. I heard Lukas come out of bed so I called up to him and told him to "Get back in!" He complained a bit but then I never heard him so I assumed he went back to bed. Well, 20 minutes later I went upstairs and I was about to go check on the kids when I almost tripped on this little guy. I can't believe he fell asleep there. You'd think it was more comfortable in bed!

Fast forward a few weeks...

There hasn't been anything too exciting over here the past few weeks. Let me think... Conrad's sent off a bunch of applications for jobs for next year. We'll wait and see what comes of that. I'm almost done on of my quilts. Yey! I'm just stitching down the binding and then I'll be finished! Oh yea, I've almost forgotten already, Conrad and I went to Statford a couple of weeks ago for a night. It was really nice. We stayed at a B&B and watched "Oklahoma". The play was great!

Today my Dad and Mom are flying out for a visit! We'll see them Saturday or Sunday because they are in Toronto for a day first, and then they're here for a week. We're looking forward to that!

Here are a couple pictures of our littlest girl. She's growing up so much, a little stinker.
