About Me

My photo
I love to take pictures and after I purchased my first digital camera I took even more pictures. I currently have albums, slide carrousels and CDs full of of pictures that need to be organized and presented in some type of fashion. That is why I started digital scrapbooking. So far I have only done a few pages, but my plans are to do alot more. My camera is also great help in organizing the cards that I have made. I have taken pictures of all the cards and want to make albums that I can leave with prospective customers. I have also put these pictures on the internet so family across Canada can see them.

Lost, but not forgotten and happily found

I can't quite find the right words to express our happiness and excitement at visiting Angus' and George's wonderful cousin Linda and her family.  For many years we only knew, that Linda was  up north somewhere, but as George's family tree search developed, Linda was found. Not that she was ever lost, she was exactly where she had almost aways been. I will hazard a guess and say it has been about 50 years since the three cousins have seen each other.

We spent an awesome weekend visiting with Linda, and two of her daughters, Chantal and Chris and their husbands. It was fantastic hearing some of the old stories and making new ones. My only regret was that I hadn't brought any pictures of my kids with me and that the weekend had to end. Most importantly, we have found family and new friends and never plan on losing them again. I am really looking forward to our next visit.
