We knew living in our camper was getting a bit chilly, so we bought a piece of property with a little house on it in Oxbow, I call it our Little Winter Cottage.
It's 600 sq ft, three times the size of our camper, has two bedrooms, a bathroom, living room & kitchen. It's quite cozy and will suit us just fine till we complete the new house and are ready to move in.
My most favorite part of the house...the red door
I was excited to be able to decorate the house for fall
The kids enjoying their bathtub (the camper only had a shower)
In our little bathroom
Our kitchen with borrowed table & chairs from the Avery family (all our chairs were buried in storage). Before we moved into this little house, I took the opportunity to paint a few walls with optional paint colors for our new house...this color made the cut, it's called 'jalapeno pepper' by Benjamin Moore
The living room was painted using a brown from our last house, I like it even better now that I see it
We have a large yard, 150ft x 250ft and plan to do a future condo development after we move out

Ace turning 4 years old was the first birthday we have celebrated for our family since moving to Sask. Nana baked her specialty birthday cake: angel food with seven-minute icing and sprinkles.
Ace felt so happy and loved as we celebrated at Nana & Papas
Ace is very smilie these days...I guess that comes from being a photographer's child
Like any parent says, it's hard to believe how fast 4 years has flown by...all the more reason to enjoy every day with your children.

This is how you're greeted when you go to Cory's Grandparents house...I just had to take a photo of this yummy breakfast that we had at their house.
The kids enjoyed a mini photo shoot with Gramma & Grampa Nash
Then we showed them photos of the construction of our new home
Ace did a little woodworking in Grampas shop
They spoiled us with a great supper...pork cutlets, yum!
and lemon meringue pie!
It was so wonderful to have an afternoon to visit and catch up...we left with full tummies too!
