Our unexspected Vacation.

So we have been trying to make the best of this unexpected vacation in Tok.

We are staying in a cute cabin ,we went to a sing a long at the cabins lodge last night and we have been BBQing hot dogs and hamburgers.
Dale even made pancakes  and bacon for breakfast on the grill.
I have fallen for some of the locoal food Ketchup chips, I am not a big chip eater but these bad boys are yummy.
The sights aren't half bad either.
Hopefully late tomorrow we will be back on the road.

PS. Happy 21st to my oldest Kadie she just happens to be stuck up here with us.

On the move!

We are on the road but did not get to far before the Fiat started having car issues .
We were lucky that we caught it before we were stuck in the middle of Canada.
We are only about 90 miles from Canada and were blessed that we found out where we did because there is a mechanic here to fix it. The hard part is getting the prats to fix it.
We will have to drive 200 miles to get the alternator rebuilt assuming they have the parts if not we will have to wait even longer to have the part overnights.
On the upside we are staying an a cute cabin and having fun as a family.
Hopefully we will be on the road late Tuesday night.
I will update you as we go.

Keeping the Faith!

Here we are just 13 days until we move still no renter still no job still no place to move into.
So what do we have you may ask?
We have  Love, health ,each other, good friend and family members and tons of Faith.

"Faith in something greater than ourselves enables us to do what we have said we'll do, to press forward when we are tired or hurt or afraid, to keep going when the challenge seems overwhelming and the course is entirely uncertain."
--Gordon B Hinckley--

My friend had this quote on her FB wall and it totally gave me peace I have heard this quote many time and really needed this reminder.

Fire Fire!

At about 6:30 I smelt fire burning I Looked all around my house and nothing in side was on fire so I went out side, the smell was stronger and I could see smoke.
I went inside to tell Dale he told Garret to go into the forest to see if he could see any thing, just then my neighbor called and told me there was a fire and that embers were hitting her window, she only live two houses away.
2 minuets later the door bell rings it was the police, we were asked to evacuate.
I packed some clothing and put all our valuables in the car had Dale take the kids to Youth night at the church.
I stayed at home and talked to the neighbors that chose to stay.
We were all worried and ready to leave at a moments notice.
The red cross center was being set up to host the families in the neighborhood.
It was crazy and scary.
I could not believe all the cars that were driving up and down our street, everyone wanted to see the fire.
(This is taken from my front yard)
The police finally had to block our street.
(I took this as it flew over my house)
 There was so many helicopter drops of the flame retardant it was kinda cool to watch but scary that they were so close.
At about 7:45 they finally had the fire out.
Only one house in the neighborhood sustained any damage thank goodness.

(This is how close the flames were to the houses)
The forest not so lucky.
It is pretty burned.
I just pray that with the high winds we are having today nothing flairs up again.
I am a little nervous to go to sleep tonight but pray that we will continue to be safe.

Look before you send.

Saturday I sent text to my girls asking them to wear white shirts and blue jeans because we were taking family pix.
Evidently I wrote my daughter Shelly " We are taking family pox tomorrow please wear white shit and blue jeans".
Lets just say her and her co workers had a lot of fun with this one. 
This was almost as funny as the time i posted my new years goal was to celibate me instead of celebrate me.
I have also posted we had hips and dip with dinner in stead of chips and dip.
 you would think i would have learned by now.

Just breath..

This is what I keep telling my self when I feel the anxiety getting the best of me.
I am feeling totally overwhelmed right now.
I thought by now every thing would be in place and tied in cute little package ready to start this new phase of our life.
Right now we have no job no renter for this house and no house to move into,
25 days left to move and no house packed.
Everyone keeps telling me to have faith and every thing will work out.
I have lots of faith I just have no control right now.
I hate not having control of whats happening to me and my family.
I know every thing will work out in due time.
I just will due time would hurry up a bit.
My rant is done.
On a postive note
I need to try and find packing boxes and pack this house up, I have some what control over that at least.

The wedding.

Sunday Dale performed a weeding for a young coupe.
He first met the couple when he went on a death note as Trooper Chaplin in October.
The brides brother had been killed and Dale was sent to comfort and council the family.
The brides family was so impressed with Dales kindness and council they asked that Dale would officiate there wedding.
Dale was honored.
He did a wonderful job you would have thought he did this a million times.
It was nice for Dale to see the family again under much better situation.

It was a beautiful wedding.
I was glad I got to tag a long.

Impromptu photo shoot

Miss Maddie cat liked the way she looked this morning before church and asked me to take some pictures.
So I let her do here thing.

She then said ok momma you look beautiful too let's change spots.

So I mimicked her.
