Welcome!

We are Nico and Marlies Wobben and in February 2008 we moved from the Netherlands to Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada! Nico is an RN at the General Hospital and I (Marlies) work from home, as an administrator at Canada Life and for my own web design business Feel The Fire. And we have 7 cats!

2010 Olympics / Winter Wonderland

Right now we’re in full Olympics mode!! The openingsshow in Vancouver was fantastic and made us so proud to be a Canadian resident!! And thanks to our wonderful neighbours Mike and Alison we finally have the Olympic mittens too now! As for the games… Dutch speedskater Sven Kramer has Gold and mogul skier Alex Bilodeau just now got the first ever Canadian Gold Medal on Canadian soil… woohoooo!!!

Time for some winter shots. We had a big storm 3 weeks ago with 27 cm of snow and snowdrifts many feet high, which left many people stranded in their own driveway or street for a day. Lots of digging to do, like Nico and Randy from acrosse the street are doing here.

Further updates: medical went well as far as we can tell, we learned that our file has been moved from Buffalo to LA (Buffalo’s too busy) and little Smokey went back home after 10 days. That’s it right now!
