Little trip away

We just returned home from Ontario where we went to celebrate the life of John Colvin(dave's grandpa) with family. It was a very spontaneous trip that we didn't know about until wednesday morning of last week. It was very refreshing to be together with family, including Mark and Rachel who were able to make it out from England (who met Corrina for the first time!) Claire took alot of beautiful photos of Corrina and was a joy to visit with for the second time this year. We also had the chance to hang out with Dave and Sue and Julia, who we hadn't seen in about a year and a half. Dave and i both relished in all the visiting and the game playing. We are immensely thankful for our family
Our house feels so empty to me and i have alot of adjusting to do today. Again it is confirmed that i really do love a house full of people. I have some projects on the go but i am having trouble mustering up the energy to get into them.
Here are some highlights from our trip:

(this first one here is Corrina cutting her first tooth o n Susan's mug! Yes, she now has a sharp mouth!)
A very Proud Grandpa showing off the baby at Church!!!

Well, i have a suitcase to unpack and some fun things to get to. Lonely but good to be back. We miss all you Ontario-ians and Englanders already.

Hi there Janers, i konw that empty house feeling must be hard to overcome...especially with bags to unpack and all the housework to do alone again. that is no fun. i like sharing housework and food with a few other women, over holidays we do that a bit. it just feels somuch more fun then! :)

We had a BLAST seeing you folks, Corrie is such a darling!!!!!!!!

Love to you there, from sue

Glad you made it to Ontario. It is nice to visit with family even if it is for the sad reasons.

Hugs from our house to yours!

A tooth?! Any more about to surface? The photos look great. Any chance we could get a copy of some of them? Do you have them on the internet?
