Some old friends, together again!

Today is my dear friend Tracey's birthday! I hope you have a fantastic day! Eat lots of cake. I would if I had some.

Jeff wins, and I'm not sure why!

I was going to write about how Heather likes to cheat at board games, but I thought I'd be nice so I'll write about her wonderful hairdressing abilities instead!

Last night we were all at my in-laws for supper. It was a good time and good food that's for sure. After supper we played a game, which I will not tell you about, and then Heather got out the scissors and the line-up for haircuts began. So, she asked who's first and Jeff piped up and said Aaron. After much debating and me glaring at him, Jeff won and Aaron got his very first haircut. It was a sad moment for me, as now he looks more like a little boy than a baby. But, to Heather's credit, she did a great job, of both the boys. Maybe when I get my camera out, I'll take a picture and you can see how cute they look. So thanks Heather for the great haircuts and for saving us $20.

So exhausted!

If you couldn't tell by the title, I'm tired. It all started a few weeks ago, but the worst happened on Thursday night. My son Aaron woke up at midnight. I fought to get him back to sleep and finally at 2:30 he gave in, only to wake up an hour later. I think by 4:00 or shortly after he was asleep. My son Jamin has a cold, so he was waking up on and off because of his coughing. I think by 5:00 I finally got to sleep.

Last night, we got home a bit late, so the boys were in bed around 10:00. Only about an hour past their bedtime. Jamin slept fine, except for a coughing fit he had around 10:30. Aaron decided to wake up, and I'm not sure exactly what time but I think somewhere around 5:30. I've been fighting with him ever since to get back to sleep.

I know, some will say "just let him cry". I tried. He screams until he's coughing and sounding like he's going to throw up. He's my good sleeper. I don't know what's wrong. When he wakes up you can tell he's tired, but it's almost like he can't sleep.

So, I'm not sure what to do. I don't know if there's something wrong with him, or if it's a phase, or he's teething (really really badly). He's fine during the day. I guess we'll see how the next few nights go.

End of Day 3

Yes, the toilet seat is yellow. We forgot to buy a white one, so this will have to do. For now.

It works too!

So that's probably it for a while. Jeff has to go back to work. At least we have a toilet and a bathtub. Kind of important when you only have one bathroom!

End of Day 1

The bathtub... or where it used to be.


I'll keep you posted.....

Happy birthday!

As many of you may know, today is Steven's 30th birthday! What some of you may not know is that today is also Tiffany's birthday. While, she may not be turning 30 yet (I'll let you know when she does), it is still a very important day.

So, Happy Birthday Tiffany and Steven. We wish you so much happiness and many many more years celebrating your birthday together!

Love you lots!

Hes..... the copycat!

So I went to girls night last night, and who walks in with the exact same hairdo as me? You guessed it, Hes. If anyone has read her blog recently, you will notice that she tried to pin the blame on me. I do believe that I got my hair done a week and a half ago, and she got hers done on Tuesday. So who copied who?

Okay, so the hairdo isn't exactly the same. She has layers and bangs and it's a bit shorter than mine, but the color? Identical. We go to the same hairdresser. But it's okay though, we just can't go anywhere in public together for a while. lol.

It's not the best picture, but I was taking the picture myself. That and it's not the best hairday or the best model.

15 years

Congratulations to my sister-in-law Heather and her husband Sheldon.
Today they have been married 15 years. We wish you many more years of happiness together. Congrats!

By the way Heather, you're still not allowed to move away!

And I thought walking was good for you

I am normally very faithful with using my treadmill (or machine of death as I sometimes call it), but in the past month, or possibly two, I've not been so faithful. So I decided that September was the month to get back into it. Monday night I got on it and I walked for about half an hour. Let's just say that since then I've been in, at times, quite a bit of pain. And it's not the usual sore legs, it's my back. I have no idea what I did, but it hurts.

I didn't have anything else to write about, so I thought I would just complain for a minute. I'm done now.

First day of School!

Today was Jamin's first day of Nursery school! It was a happy/sad kind of day. I'm thrilled that he gets to go, and the school we put him in seems really wonderful. I just have a hard time letting my "baby" go. He's grown so incredibly fast. It feels like it was just yesterday that he was in fact a baby. But, as he likes to tell me, he's not a baby anymore.

And, it's not so much that nursery school makes me sad. I just know what comes next year. Kindergarten, then grade one, and so it goes from there. I don't get him all to myself anymore. So, as I am very happy that he is going to have lots of fun and play with and make new friends and learn so much, I just can't help but feel a little twinge of sadness. I'll be fine though. I am however, incredibly proud of this little man of ours. He's such a good kid and a great joy in our lives. We love you Jamin!

Jamin and his cousin Jordan! I'm also thrilled that the two of them get to experience Nursery School together. How great is that!

Mike and Jody

Congratulations to our friends Mike and Jody who were married this past Friday! It was a beautiful wedding and the bride looked absolutely amazing! We are so happy for the two of you and wish you many many years together!

Mike (the groom), my husband Jeff (also the best man) and Vince (friend of both from high school)

I realized when I was posting about our anniversary that I didn't have any current pictures of me and Jeff together. I guess after we had children, it became about them and not so much about us. At least when it came to taking pictures. So here is one, although don't look too close (at me that is).
