January and a visit from Taylor

Well January is beginning to be long, but we are so blessed to have Taylor come and visit us for a few days.  It has been such fun to have her here.  She really brought the feelings of home with her.  It is great to  have a break from January.  We visited Steveston, where they film "Once Upon A Time".  She went and spent a day with the Sisters in Vancouver and they had a great time.  She was also here with us today, Sunday, to help us with the baptism.  Al baptized Kaba today and I gave a talk on Baptism.  We had many people to pick up for church and Kaba and his whole family, so we started out very early.  Having an extra pair of hands was so needed.  Thank you Taylor for all the help with the kids.   Al did a wonderful job of the baptism.  It was wonderful to have a granddaughter here with us and her being with us for Al's first baptism.  It was a special day.

Ready to head out with the sisters, the new Sister Nickels.  Or should I say the Young Sister Nickels

Saturday we spent in Steveston.  The wind was blowing and it was cold, but we had to go and see it.  It is always great to go down by the ocean and see all the boats.


We had to investigate all the boats and their fish they were selling.  Each Saturday the boats are docked at the pier and they sell their fish off their boats.  It is so interesting to see all the different kinds of fish that there are-heads and all.
No visit is complete without Fish n Chips at Dave's.

Have to have those pictures from "Once Upon A Time"  Here is Granny's Diner.
My talk was about the three Bears.  When you are baptized you Bear the name of Christ, Bear your testimony, and Bear one another's Burdens.

Kaba is 9 years old.  All of the Assistant's were involved in his teaching. 

Kaba was so excited to be baptized.
It has been a wonderful weekend.  We are so happy that Taylor came to visit us.  We will have a hard time putting her on the airplane tomorrow on Monday.  Don't know if I can bear it.
