Nov 15-Dec 04, 2009

ITS A GIRL!! Signe Deborah was born on November 24 at 2:16 am via C-section. Melissa and Signe are doing well. She gave her mother a hard time trying to get out but she made it. She was one day early from her due date. We are happy, happy grandparents. I was in Edmonton from November 23 to December 1 to help Melissa. I thoroughly enjoyed my little granddaughter.
Doug is thrilled and so are all our other neighbors. It will be nice to have a baby in the bay again they say. Signe is a Norwegian name (as Darren's family is Norwegian) and Deborah is George's sister.
November weather has been absolutely horrible this year. We were certainly getting tired of the rain. We had puddles all over the yard. There was ice in the bay on Wednesday and yesterday. With all the rain, the rivers and creeks are overflowing so there is quite abit of fresh water in the bay to freeze.

The water is crystal clear and the air is fresh. The sun is shining and it is brisk. Everything smells so clean and new. It is getting ready for a new year.

We will be in Alberta again for Christmas at Mother Mary's. George is anxious to meet his granddaughter. He says he will be teaching her to run a boat and to fish, but not for a few years yet.

We are still busy gathering wood and George has been busy fixing the end of the barge. It was slow going with all the rain and wind. George will be going to Masset in the Queen Charlottes to look at a boat we are thinking of buying. It will make it easier to get around.
