Holiday News

This was part of a Christmas present Dave made me. Dave had organized for me to have this piano last Christmas!! But with the snow in northern ontario it wasn't possible to get the piano until my birthday APRIL!! hehe But i was more than thrilled to have a piano. It however had no front board to cover the piano. SOOOOO... for Christmas this year dave made a front cover. He stained it and routered a verse and design on the front! Isn't it beautiful!!! I love it!. Thanks Dave!!!

Our first newfoundland Christmas was nice. We however were ll struggling with a cold and cough but we were at home where we could just relax. Our landlord came by a few days before and passed me in a turkey(and a big one at that!) and a ham! What a blessing. So I went ahead and cooked a turkey dinner... I have only ever cooked a turkey once before in my life.. well.. it was pretty good.. I even remembered to take out the inards this time!:) We had stuffing and cranberries.. all the christmas stuff... just for us.. now.. we have enough leftovers to have soup, stew, sandwiches, casseroles, .... anyway.. the freezer is full and we are blessed. The kids both got a few clothes which is always handy, and some books. We spent a little time reading a few verse cards together and daily devotionals to help us remember the Lord over the season. We hope you all had a Merry Christmas too. I would love to hear how your family celebrations went. Please leave a comment!

OHHHHH I almost forgot! We leave Friday for Bev Clarke's wedding in PEI. As usual with us Campsall's arrival time in PEI according to driving time and ferry schedule is 2:00 pm sautrday afternoon. The wedding you say?... 2:30 pm!!! Hehe.. see you there(oh.. if you're not going.. i'll post some pictures when we get back!:)

Happy New Year

Love the Campsalls

Just a little update

Well today is an at home day with my children.John turned one yesterday!! I dressed them up and took them out to the play group. Chloe loves the playgroup. This morning she woke up early because she wasn't feeling well so i brought her down in our bed. While dave was getting ready for work she began telling us about yesterday. She said she played in the sandbox. Played with toys and sat in a chair and had a snack. She is really a chatterbox now but it is so lovely. Well John was officially walking on december 14th and also learned to stand up without help and just go! on the 18th of December. Also on the 20th of December i heard the new baby's heartbeat at the doctor's for the first time!! It was a relief to me cause right now i can't feel any movement and i feel normal..haha.. not that im not normal when im pregnant but i feel well so hearing the heartbeat gave relief that all is well in there!!! We expect , hopefully a fellow from Dave's work to join us for christmas as he is from Bancroft Ontario and is here alone for Christmas. Lord willing we will all benefit from the company. Dave has only a half day of work today and a special lunch then he is off till after christmas. Yay!! I am still working on a quilt to give him for christmas. I need to get a move on though. Im a slacker!!. What else is new here. Oh, i've started reading the book called Peace Child. It should be good!. Well that's all for now. Hopefully in the future i'll be able to post some pictures of the family. God bless for today
