Bday Party





E was invited to a bday party for this afternoon. We went and took A as well. What fun. The mom had a guy come in who shows reptiles. Very cool. I fell in love with an African Fat-tailed Gecko.

Whew another busy day

Well today was another busy day. It's Auntie J's birthday. Here's a pic of her a couple years ago.

Also, Grndp Trry got here this afternoon. The kids were quite happy to see him. Tonight we are all, and I mean all(there's thirteen of us), going out for dinner. That should be fun......

Good Day

This is our A on the playstructure in our backyard.
Grndm D watched the kids for an hour this a.m. while I went out to do some running around. I got three times as much stuff done in half the time by going without the kids. While I was gone Grndm D taught them to do a football dance. The video here is of E doing his football dance.


We want to send a Happy Birthday message to our little friend R who turns one year old today.

Our Surprise Weekend





We got a phone call last weekend from M's brother with great news. He was getting married on Friday. So on Thursday we took off for TO and stayed at the best hotel ( The Grand). The kids loved hotel living and they got to see Nana who flew in from Wnnpg and Grampy who flew in from Salt Lke Cty, Uth. The wedding was beautiful!!! The weather was beautiful!! And M and I need a vacation to recover from the travel.
On the way home we even found time to spend a few hours at the TO Zoo.

Saturday/Family Day

We had a great road trip out to Mrrckvlle today. It took us 1.5 hours to get there as I got us horribly lost and we wandered around backroads looking for civilization. The train store was very fun though and the boys had a blast. The drive back was much quicker. We went for a bike ride this afternoon and now the boys are off to bed. M and I are going to watch the movie Offce Spce....we have heard it is quite funny.
Here's a video of A on the drive back from Mrrckvlle.

Week update



Well things around here were pretty quiet this week. Except A fell off a chair and bonked his head. He has quite a nice goose egg to show for it. You would think that he would learn some caution with regards to chairs but as the video here will prove he has learned nothing.






We were outside at the crack of dawn trying to absorb some of the very sparse sunshine that has been around lately. It was about 3 degrees outside the morning this photo was taken.


Also, Grnny babysat for us when M and I were at a meeting and the boys were asleep when we got home. Actually E was just faking it for this picture as shortly after I took this he popped out of bed like a popcorn kernel.


So a nice calm week around here. We are looking forward to the weekend when Daddy will be home.
A friend posted something I found interesting on her blog on April 12th. If you want to check it out here is the link.

Rambling Thoughts

So I don't if you other couples are like M and I but we have very different sleep patterns. I need a period of time at the end of the night where there is quiet and solitude to gear down and clear my mind. After this period of silence I may be able to drift off to sleep in about a half an hour. M on the other hand is usually asleep before he has even finished placing his head on his pillow and saying 'good night'.
I have explained this difference to M and asked him not to talk to distract me during my quiet time. This sometimes works........the other night however.....not so much. M said to me before instantly falling asleep, 'Don't forget we have homework for our Alpha Marriage Class to do tomorrow'. My rambling thoughts then went something like this.............

hmmmm......Alpha Marriage Homework............
I think I read recently that Klly Prston and her husband Jhn Travlta do something like this.....
I also heard that Jhn Travlta wears a wig, I wonder if that's true.............
It must suck to get hair plugs.....but what else can Hollywd men do..........
Hahaha I remember that Shllw Hal Movie where the character spray paints his head to hide his baldness
I think that same character also had a tail like a puppy that wagged when he was happy....that was stupid
Puppies are cute though.....
I remember reading that Ktherne McPhe from Amrcn Idl has a little puppy.......
She's a good singer.......
That other guy was not as good......lalalala....he sang a good song though on the finale....
I wonder why she didn't win?

At this point M wakes up because I'm tossing and turning and says, "Are you having trouble getting to sleep?"
AAUUUGGGHHHH!!!!!
I wish I could fall asleep as quickly as he could.

Oops Thomas

So after having a tease of warm weather we are back in the deep freeze. To keep ourselves amused we pulled out the dominoes this afternoon.


After our naps we couldn't take the inside anymore and the boys and I went for a bike ride. We had to wear our mitts and winter jackets but it was well worth the fresh air. Come on spring warmth where are you???

Happy Easter

Well Easter is almost upon us. We had a lazy day today in preparation for tomorrow's Easter fun. Here's some pics of the day. Granny spent the night last night so M and I could go out to a wedding reception. We even got dressed up, too bad there's no photos of that.
After dinner we coloured eggs. Unfortunately there are no pictures of that either as it was all we could do to keep the eggs and the colouring dye on the table. But here's a picture right before we got started.
Then M took the boys up for their bath. I could hear them from the hallway and shot this video. It cracks me up!!!!

End of Day White Shirt

Well this is the white shirt at the end of the day. The arrows indicate spots where there are stains. Considering he was wearing bib overalls and a bib at every meal...........Stains include such things as orange juice, chocolate, gravy, and contact with every dirty surface at the gymnastics centre, Wal-mart and our house. How do people get their kids through their day with white shirts and always look so cute?

It's 9:35a.m. I haven't emptied the diswasher, I have two loads of laundry to fold and the three of us are all in our pyjamas still.(My therapist would be so proud)
However, I have made a pretty cool snow covered pillow mountain. And torn up a roll of paper towel to be snow for the trains on the track.

The White Shirt


So I am rarely brave enough to put a white shirt on either of my boys but today I thought I would take the step. This is the 'before' picture. I will be taking another picture at the end of the day and see how it turned out. I'll keep you posted.
