Another Week

Well another week has gone by. Blake is back at school after sickness and March Break. Tyson some days is lost without him. It is nice when Braden is home as that gives Tyson someone to play with.

The girls are starting the transition to sippy cups and we are getting there. They only have bottles in the morning and night now. It seems forever when you are in the middle of it.

Blake is looking forward to his friend Hunter's birthday on Sunday. They are going bowling.

In one week we will be at Great Wolf Lodge. Looking forward to it.

Vacation Fun

Well as it turns out the flu bug did hit everyone again last week. No fun. It continued until Friday night. But all has been well since then.
It got cold again today after a string of nice days.
Braden cut our big elm tree in the side yard down this week. Very sad about that, it was a huge tree but it had died. We are going to plant some more this summer.
He also went to the Ottawa Sens game on Tuesday night with work. We hung out here, made some muffins, the boys went swimming with Nana and Papa.
Nana's birthday is tomorrow and we are all going down to Erin and Steve's and the girls are going to see Sound of Music.(Me, Nana, Auntie Judy, Erin and Lindsey) Looking forward to that.
Then in 2 weeks we are going to Great Wolf Lodge for 2 nights. That should be a lot of fun. I think all the kids will enjoy it but especially the boys. We will also pick up our new stroller on the way there in T.O.
I shall check back in after the weekend.

The Last Couple of Days

Well, we have been busy the last couple of days. Friday was gorgeous (15 C) so we decided to make our first trip to the zoo this year. The kids had a great time. It was nice to get out of the house and outside with everyone. Saturday, Braden helped a friend move so we hung around the house. Sunday Braden put new brakes on my parents car so again we hung around. Monday we had some freezing rain so Blake's bus was cancelled. We had the girls first year pictures (will put them up when I get them back) so we went to that. It seems the flu bug has hit our house again this year!! Rachael was up last night and Tyson has had it this evening. No fun for anyone!! Hopefully I don't get it again this time and it leaves our house quickly without anyone else getting it!! Don't have much on for tomorrow so we will see what the day holds!!

Ok I think I may have this picture thing figured out. Maybe!! Here is a picture of the boys outside yesterday. Ok may be I don't have it figured out. The picture is not going where I want them to go. I will figure it out sometime. Hopefully sooner rather than later!!
Here is the after picture of the girls with their cake, see this was supposed to be the last picture but it is the first.

And here is the before picture. So cute!!

So today, just another regular day. Blake went to school today. Tyson and the girls hung out with Braden while he kept track of the hockey trades on TV. I headed out to do some running around and get the kids SIN #s so that we can set up their RESP. Blake and Tyson tried chicken breast tonight!! Another step in the right direction!! Yeah for normal family stuff!!

A Summary of the Day

Oh for spring. I can't wait for spring, nice weather, open the windows, clothing on the line, and getting rid of germs!! But it also means that Braden goes back to work and we don't like that part. We have enjoyed an extra long winter with him, going on 3 months now and it has been nice. Just hanging out as a family, him here to help put the kids to bed every night. Today was a good day. We did some fort building and more fort building (they are really into that right now), computer, Wii, and some rowdiness which led to the boys spending some time outside. It was cold but they needed to burn off some energy!! We were also successful at getting Blake and Tyson to try meatballs (no small feat) and they liked them. Here are some pictures from Rachael and Paige's 1st birthday party on Sat. and one from today. Ok as it turns out I need to perfect this adding a picture thing. The pictures will be added soon!!

So it Begins

I am starting this Blog as a personal memory maker. It will be a way to look back and remember these days. My children are still young. These days go by so fast. I want to remember the little things, things they said and little milestones. Hopefully this will be something they want to read when they get older as well. I hope to add a little post at least everyday. Signing off for now.
