Hockey Tournament

Dan played in his first hockey tournament on the weekend. They were undefeated until the final when they lost 2-3. Bummer. But they played really well and had lots of fun (although it was tiring). It was fun watching too :) Dan's the one on the left end of the back row.

On Friday when we got home from Saskatoon we found out that my (Laura) parent's shop had burned down, and that following that my dad had a heart attack. He's okay now after having an angioplasty and lots and lots of prayer. We are so thankful that he is okay and how God had His hand in the whole thing. The firemen were still there when he had the heart attack so they were able to give him oxygen right away, which led to him having only minimal damage done to his heart. We're also thankful that it happened then because there were lots of other people around. If the fire hadn't happened, he probably wouldn't have had it then, but at a later time, possibly when he was alone and unable to get help. God is so great.

Please continue to pray for his full recovery. He is still in the London hospital recovering and getting lots of attention of the dr's and nurses. He's been able to get out of bed a little bit today which he was really glad for because he was getting pretty tired of laying down. He is doing better and better each day. Thanks for praying.

Our Christmas

Christmas morning Dan and I got up early and opened our Christmas presents.

Later that day Dan and I just hung out together...watched movies, had supper, went snowmobiling, and decided to be lazy. We had a pretty good time although we both really missed our families and wished we could have been with them.


One of the families from our church blessed us by letting us borrow their snowmobiles while they were away for Christmas. We had a blast! Nipawin has some pretty nice trails so we had fun exploring.

What's a button?

We went curling for part of our staff Christmas party. As you can see, Dan knows what he's doing. Who knew that pushing a rock across the ice could be so complicated? Especially when you're wearing a slider. At first I thought the whole slider idea looked fun, but I soon changed my mind after I fell a couple times :) I really don't know much about curling. However.....

...I did put this rock in this spot. (I guess they call it the "button"). Oh yeah.
