Spring 2012: Newson

Spring 2012: Kyle and Ginger Newson are 56 and Stewart Newson is 16.

New Workshop.jpg Kyle: With Tamara off at University I have converted her old bedroom to a workshop. I haven't repainted yet but getting my toys made is more of a priority.

Busy1.jpg Becker Toy's is getting really busy these days. I need to hire someone to take over the cash so I can spend more time with the customers.

KoreyAndrew.jpg I do have to admit that I spend some time playing darts with the boys when they come in. That is becoming a more regular event.

Difficult Customer.jpg I'm still working on figuring out some clients moods. There is always one customer that you just can't please.

Dinner.jpg I try to get home for dinner most nights, Ginger is often inviting student teachers from the University over. She sees herself as a mentor to these young kids.

Late Night.jpg Most nights however I'm eating re-heated leftovers by myself.

Homework.jpg Stewart is a very studious boy. He will always get his homework done on time. Probably because his mother is his teacher.

Painting.jpg When he isn't doing homework he's working on his artwork. I don't see any of the girls that he used to hang out with anymore, when I brought it up he just went back to painting. I guess something happened and he doesn't want to talk about it.

Spring 2012: Becker #2

Spring 2012: Dylan Becker is 82, Jason and Laura Becker are 62.

Phone.jpg Jason: My Mum has spend a lot of time lately on the phone with her grand kids. She loves to know what's going on in there lives and I'm sure that they tell her stuff that they won't tell anyone else.

Pool.jpg It's nice to spend the evenings playing pool with Laura and my Mum. It was one of the best things we ever did to build the games room.

Sarah.jpgOne weekend Sarah came over to visit with Molly. Korey was busy with work.

Molly.jpg Mum loves spending time with Molly, she's the only grandchild left that hasn't fully grown up yet.

Fun.jpg Molly loves spending time with her grandmother, she really is the only one that will still play silly games with her.

FamilyDinner.jpg Korey did manage to make it for dinner later. I really should have Sarah and the family over more often.

Diana.jpg Diana has always had a close relationship with her grandmother. When she was home for a weekend she came over to visit.PillowFight.jpg I guess my Mum really is still a kid at heart, I don't think anyone else can get Diana to have pillow fights anymore but her.

Passing.jpg That night when Diana was over ended up being very sad, My Mum passed away that night. I think she knew it was coming as she had spoken with all of her grandchildren, if not seen them all that week.

Sad.jpg Laura is trying to keep going as normal but I will often break down. I'm really going to miss having my Mum around.

Winter 2012: Nova Winter Vacation

Winter 2012: Andrew Nova is 61 and Kerry Nova is 59.

Check IN.jpg Kerry Nova: Andrew decided to surprise me with a beach vacation. He says its for my 60th birthday that will happen later this year. He whisked me off to Twikkii Island for a few days of glorious sun.

Private.jpg I guess in our moments of friskiness we didn't realize that there was actually someone around.

Rainy.jpg The first night was quite rainy so we spent it cuddling in our cabin.

Suana.jpg The next day was still rainy so we went to the spa. It was so nice to relax in the sauna.

Massage.jpg I left Andrew in the sauna and went for my hot stone massage..... it was so nice to relax.

Relax.jpg I found Andrew later lounging on a hammock. I don't think he's quiet got the idea of relaxing, he was still in his suit.

Puddle.jpg I think Andrew thought I was asleep when he went to play in the puddle on our balcony one night.

Snack.jpg After Andrew crawled into bed I got up for a midnight snack.

Sun tan.jpg We finally got a nice sunny day so we decided to spend it on the beach and relax.

Dinner.jpg We decided to go to one of the larger hotels for a romantic dinner. It's so nice to just spend time together, not worrying about work.

Dancing.jpg Our last night was so wonderful, we didn't want to go to bed and miss out on any time we had left.

Going HOme.jpg Despite the rain through a lot of our vacation I was still disappointed to leave that morning. We will have to come back here someday.
