5 years

We've been married now for 5 years! Craziness. It doesn't seem like it's been that long, but then when I think of all that's happened since then, I'm surprised that it's ONLY been 5 years.

1. We've moved 11 times....with a bunch of mini moves mixed in there
2. We've lived in 2 provinces and 3 states
3. We've had 3 children

Loads of fun. But, now we're somewhat settled and will probably be staying here for a few more years.

I love John so much and am amazed at how well two people can get along. I love our life.

Want some free Christmas gifts?

I started a review/giveaway blog a few months ago with my "Cute Like Me" business partner (sounds so official....). It is super fun, but lately our number of entries into the giveaways has depleted. This has its benefits though for those who enter.....more chances to win! There is a giveaway ending tonight for your choice of T-shirt from Crazy Dog Tees. Currently there are 24 comments.....not very many..... SO, if you want to win some stuff, go enter. Even if you are my sister.....or can still win......

Christmas List Collage

The other day Hadley wanted to do a "craft". She wanted to do one with me....hmmm. After giving a few suggestions, I came up with the perfect idea. She loves cutting and gluing, and she has been talking A LOT lately about what she wants for her birthday and Christmas. So, naturally, this is what I came up with.

Step 1: Draw a large outline of a Christmas Tree, complete with star.
Step 2: Gather flyers and magazines
Step 3: Cut out what you want for Chrismas

Step 4: Glue to the Tree - or put around the tree if you run out of room (we both did....I guess we're a little greedy....)

Here's mine - I don't really know what I ACTUALLY want for Christmas....but here are some things on my eventual wishlist....or things that I like....not that I would mind getting all these things.....especially the new laptop - ours is dying!

When I showed John my masterpiece, he said "why do you want that ugly green sweater"....

Anyway, it's not the most beautiful craft in the world, but it may keep your child busy and then you can get rid of all the Christmas flyers that have been overtaking your house!

Yikes......the boys are in real beds now.... They've been in playpens since they were born but Elijah has been climbing out of his for about a month. Brian climbed out a few times, but I think he stopped because he fell and hurt himself once. In the past few weeks Elijah would climb out of his playpen and then push a little table in their room over to his playpen and climb back in. I figured he was ready for a bed.....and naturally, Brian joined in the fun. Last night wasn't too bad. Brian just fell out once. Today for their nap we just had to put them back in bed about 10 times. They think their beds are super cool, so that helps a bit....

Birthday Boys!

The boys had a birthday today. I can't believe it's only been 2 years. It seems like they were born eons ago.....probably because we've moved 5 times since then.......

Enjoy some pics!

About 2 years ago.....

We filled their room with balloons......

I was going to forgo the whole cake decorating thing, but I decided to add some food colouring and make a makeshift road on the cake. It was pretty awesome.....


It was a fun day! I love my boys and it is so fun to see how they are growing. They are so different from each other. Elijah LOVES his cars. Brian likes them, but he LOVES hockey more. Whenever he sees a hockey stick, he has to have it, and then goes looking for a ball. So fun.....

Our kids loved Halloween this year. Hadley was a great trick or treater. Brian kept saying "choo choo" for "trick or treat". Elijah kept getting scared.

Hadley wanted to be a pirate, and Brian and Elijah were Mario and Luigi. All I had to buy was Hadley's hat for $1. Not bad.
