Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

November??

Today we are on the road, for a small trip only!  We are finally bringing the trailer home form Olds.  Between the highway conditions and a very slow part delivery, it has taken some time to get here.

As predicted October passed in a flurry, and it seems November has as well.  The good part is that vacation is closer, the sad part is sometimes life just speeds on!

Life has been filled with lots of activities these past weeks.  Don has been from Peace River to Grande Prairie to Fort McMurray to Whitecourt.  He’s hard to keep track of sometimes!  I’ve had the pleasure of a couple of jobs myself, and  yet another company Safety Audit to work on.  My Co-op Board work is a bit intense lately, as well as the FCSS Board.  I really need to quit writing policies for free!  Add to that visits with friends, Thanksgiving in Fort McMurray, Don’s niece Dallas’s wedding in Tisdale, and everyday life, and here it is almost the end of November.  One of my contracts was in Fort McMurray as well, so I enjoyed an extra day with Lindsay and family.  Actually Connor was sick while I was there, so he stayed home form daycare with me for a whole day. 

The special family times included Don’s birthday, Tracy’s birthday, Reese’s 3rd Birthday, Tracy and Cal’s anniversary, and Lindsay and Jeremy’s anniversary at the end of November. 

Lindsay and Jeremy went for a 3D Ultrasound and I was so thrilled to see our next grandson.  He looks just like Connor did in utero, and I bet he will when born.  Those 3D ultrasounds are amazing!

We started what we hope is a tradition of buying our grandchildren their first bikes for their 3rd birthdays, and Reese was so much fun to do this for.  Reports have it that she is enjoying sitting on it, etc. so that is good to hear.  When she saw the Dora bike it was love at first sight.  So cute.

Blake is deeply involved with hockey now, both playing and watching on TV.  He can quote more stats than I knew existed!  He is a scoring sensation this year, and we will need to re-think the $1 per goal promise next year.

Emerson is now attending preschool 3 days a week, and loves it.  She also loves her dance, and it’s too bad we can’t watch that, but no adults allowed.

Reese is such a character!  Her expressions and chatter are priceless.  She spent a morning with us recently and we had great Tim Hortons visit.

Connor?  Well he is jus the cutest ever!  I cherish his hugs and kisses, as I know when he gets older they will be harder to procure.  He is at that age where you see new development every time.  Right now the difference to me is his talking.  Not that you know what he is saying, but there is a steady stream.

Well it is getting close to the time to get the Christmas Season going in the house.  Next week my friends and I start out baking days together, and we all know December passes so quickly.  We will need to slow down and enjoy the season.

Watch those waistlines.  LOL
