My latest problem!

I have a huge urge to go shopping! As you all know it's Christmas shopping time. As it turns out, I'm basically finished my shopping except for maybe a couple of little things, which normally would be great. The problem? I haven't actually gone out and had my day of Christmas shopping. I've just been picking up things here and there and now I have basically nothing left to shop for. And I really want to go shopping. I want to spend some time at the mall and my favorite box stores, and then go for lunch, maybe a movie in the evening.

I guess the solution to this problem is to go out shopping for myself (buy myself some Christmas presents) and do lunch and a movie. Now the next problem. A girl can't go by herself!

Happy Birthday Jamin!

Happy 4th Birthday Jamin!

Can anybody tell me where the last 4 years went? I never dreamed they would go by this fast. My little boy is already in Nursery School and next fall he's going to go to Kindergarten. It just seems like they grow up so fast, too fast. But I am very proud of the boy he's growing up to be. He is such a blessing in our lives and I am so very thankful to God for the family I've been given!

We love you so much Jamin!

Now, for a few party pics!

Looks like a couple of little boys enjoyed the cake!

What is it with boxes?


It was a great day. Jamin had lots of fun and I hope that everyone else did as well! Thank you all for coming and sharing his day with him!

My Goal

As you can see I've added a ticker to my blog. My goal is to walk 200 miles by the end of March. I think it's a reasonable goal. I want to keep active during my pregnancy for a couple of reasons. One reason being that I don't want to gain a whole pile of weight, and the other being that I believe that it may help with labor. I was fairly active during my last pregnancy and labor went much better than the first time.

So here goes....

The results are in!

This morning we found out we are having a boy! It is so wonderful knowing what we are having. I am thrilled we are having another boy. I love my two boys so incredibly much and I just can't wait to meet this little guy. It's really neat too. They gave us a few pictures, a CD with even more pictures and a DVD with the ultrasound session on it. I've played it a couple of times now and I love seeing him move around and kick. It's so amazing how much you can love a little guy you've never even met. Now we just need to come up with a name. And no, we're not naming him Ralph.

I saw my baby. Yesterday I had an ultrasound. I've had ultrasounds before, when I was pregnant with each of my two boys. And I could have a hundred of them and each time it would be equally amazing. I got to see my little "peanut" wiggle around and even kick me, see his/her heart beating and hands moving. I can't describe what it's like to see that and to feel the baby moving. It's also amazing at how much I already love this baby. I've never met him/her, but I know that our new baby will bring us so much joy (and sleep deprivation) and that he or she will be loved so much. I am so thankful, for all the blessings in my life.

What will it be?

This Friday I have my ultrasound to find out if I'm going to have a boy or a girl. So I thought it would be interesting to do a poll to see what everyone out there thinks the baby will be. So please, feel free to vote on my poll.

Thanks for voting!

Tiggers and Dragons, oh my!

I know you've been waiting so patiently, it's been a busy week

This past week has been pretty busy for me. Well, busy for my world. I usually spend most of my time at home with my kids so for me, this was busy. Here's a brief summary:

Last Monday we celebrated my mother-in-laws birthday. Her birthday was actually Tuesday but due to a concert, we visited with them on Monday.

Tuesday was the concert. My boys went to my mom's place for the night.

Wednesday I went to my mom and dad's to pick up the boys, and then we spent the day there.

Thursday, I spent the afternoon with Tiffany while Jamin and Jordan went to nursery school. Thursday evening, Jeff's aunt, sister and I took my mother-in-law out for supper for her birthday.

Friday was Halloween and Jamin and I went out trick-or-treating.

Saturday we were invited to our friends place for a party. It was a great evening, playing games and eating a tonne of delicious food.

Sunday we went to my in-law's for lunch to celebrate my father-in-laws birthday. It was also my brother-in-law Sheldon's birthday but they couldn't be there. And last but not least, last night we went for supper to celebrate my sister Tracey's 40th birthday.

It was a really great week. I enjoy being busy. I'm just still really full from all the food I've consumed over the past week.

So I just want to say again to everyone I mentioned, Happy Birthday! I hope you had fantastic birthdays!

note: pictures of halloween costumes to come, hopefully today.
