It's 2010...WOW

HI Everyone,
It's hard to believe it's already the beginning of February and it's turned pretty cold here in Winterpeg. Earl is feeling pretty good these days, and we are both feeling better after a week in the sun. We left for Mexico on Jan5th and came home on the 12th, it's was wonderful. We stayed at a very nice resort, which was not too big, and gave Earl the opportunity to wander around at his leisure and chat up a story with the other guests. We met some awesome people and made some great friendships. The resort was beautiful and Earl swam in the ocean everyday except one. We went snorkeling and took a day trip to Xcaret, and ecological park which told the story of Mexico and its history. The weather was pretty nice for us cold Manitoban's.
Since returning Earl has made it back on the ice and is fully recovered from his surgery. As we wait and try to think of things other that cancer we are planning a trip to Detroit next week, during which we will visit with my cousins in Windsor and spend time with the team and some friends from Detroit. We are taking along 2 friends of Earl's Brittany and Keith and so this should be a fun trip. We are hoping to take Earl to visit Niagara Falls, he's never been there and I am sure he will love it.
Two weekends ago, my brother called and told me about a super good deal to go to Hawaii (Maui) so, after we get back from Detroit, we flying off for a 12 day trip to Maui. We are looking forward to it and will have a great time because my brother and his wife and other family members will also be there.

that's the update...remember no news is good news....!!! but really I am sorry it took me so long to update the blog.

Earl continues to stay positive and is serious about beating this cancer. On February 21st our church will be having a healing service for Earl, so if you live in Winnipeg you are welcome to join us as we hold Earl up in prayer and trust that God will be his strength and healer.

Take care,
