Vintage dinningroom pictures

Hello :)
I guess I better start to blog more often again, over the summer I didn't have very much time for blogging and crafting/sewing/baking, but I did some projects that I didn't share yet... here is one of them... our diningroom pictures :)

Very easy to make ;) I sprayed the old frames and the cutlery, clued fabric on the back of the pics and the cutlery on the fabric :))) That's it.

We had a nice summer, especially the last 3 weeks, when my sister from germany was here for a visit. We did lots of fun things, which I'm going to share an other time... Now school started again, Lukas joins grade 1 and JJ's preK is going to start on Tuesday :) Than I will have 4 mornings a week just with my baby (mostly sleeping baby :D) So lots time for lots things to do... I can't wait!!!

So, see you hopefully more often the next time ;)

house plans

So, today I show our house plans. In the meantime we have got the blueprints and made the contract with the builders who will build our house ​​in Manitoba. Yeah! Next, we need some estimates, and we hope soon to get the aprovel from the bank! Now, if all goes well, the house could be ready by the end of September, that it can be moved. Then we need to do some things, as kitchen and... and all hook ups have to be done ​​before we can move in. So the plan, let's see how the reality will look like  ;)

 basement... at first unfinished, but big guestroom is planed ;)

When all works out, we will have a wonderful house in the nice flat land ;) That's a dream, for sure!!!

Eyedoctor app. June 24th

Last Friday I was with all 3 kids for the eye doctor appointment in Saskatoon. The guys have been through most of the time great, am really proud of them! At least 4 hours drive one-way. First, we were at the Orthoptics. Noah Jamie was doing great and very cooperative. Last time he wasn't ... and has seen at least five striped disks with the right eye, this time he has seen 7:))) Then we went to the doctor, to the new (good) one ;). The doctor was recently at a conference in Vancouver and had personally talked with the two doctors we have to see. We should hear something soon from them, but probably it will not work out with both in one time, because one is pretty full and they are also in different hospitals. The doctor has examined Noah Jamie again and made ​​a video of him so that the doctor in Vancouver has a better idea. But she thinks that "the problem" lies in the nerve, so just something wrong "created" during pregnancy. And she is honest and I like that, she said I would like to say something good, but she doesn't want to make us any hope, because despite today's good medicine, is not all "fixable" ...

So now we're waiting on the MRI and the appointments in Vancouver.

Thank you for all who prayed for our city!!! The flooding is much better now. Lots of people with flooded basements are now renovating. Nick helped our frinds (Widemans) with ripping carpet out. But we are still on boil water advisory :(
After I saw pictures of Minots flooding (280km from us) I am so grateful for our "little" flooding here!!! Here some pics from last week.

 This is normally just field...
 Nicks company had lots of work, so they go by boat over "the field" :D

Crazy canadiens :D
