So the next thing is what order to put them in. Don't want to offend anyone so what I did was let my camera place them in the file and I am just picking them out as they come. And I didn't count pictures so there may be more of one person than another. So be it. Doesn't mean we love you any less. First up is Sheri and Dani. They were at a balloon thing on the lake near them. It looked like a fun day.
Dani again. She loves to do the lemonade stands. I think maybe she is pushing it a bit when the snow bank beside her is almost as tall as her. Good luck Dani!!

Rio is the other newest grandchild and loves gymnastics. We have gone to a couple of her practices and could see that this was something she loves. She did so well at the gymnastics meet she just attended. We are proud of you Rio!! Rio is the girl in all black with the biggest smile.
|You are flippin awesome!!|
|Joey, Gord, Rio, Sheri, Dani, and Donovan|
And the newest member of our family Max. Another smiley kid. He is still mommas boy and hasn't accomplished much except to fill our hearts with love. That is more than enough.
A picture of Dani showing off their latest pet Moose!! He is so cute and cuddly now but should stop growing just short of the size of a horse. See the size of the paws? We look forward to meeting Moose in a few weeks.
And another family picture. Derek and Nicole and family. Its a year or so old.

Donovan used to play hockey but with some knee injuries he has decided not to chance ruining his leg so now enjoys being a referee. He had surgery on his knee this winter so we hope it won't bother him anymore.
He also served as Jr. Coach along with Gord on Joey's hockey team this year. Good for him to get to know the ropes. Here is a picture of the three of them after their silver medal win not long ago.
Dani and Abby have always been good buddie. It is so nice when all the cousins seem to get along and because their ages are not that far apart, they all seem to have some like interests.
It has taken me a whole afternoon to put this post together but I have enjoyed every minute of it. If you are not a family member, and have made it all the way down here to the bottom, thanks. This is our family and we are really proud of each and every one of them. Our family is what keeps us going in life and although many people envy us spending our winters in the warm south, there are times when it is hard and we wish we were home to hug them or to be hugged. But they have all chosen their paths in life and they don't need us holding their hands all the time. Modern technology allows us to share in all of their achievements in life and although we hate face book, it is the first thing we look at to see what is going on in their lives. Keep up the good work guys.
So rather than a view out our window tonight you have to settle for a look into our hearts.
