JASMAN the Mortal Enemy

You know that fine line between love and hate...well I think my son is there. You see there is this girl at school that he is presently sitting by who is his MORTAL ENEMY. Her name is Jasmine but he calls her Jasman!!

One night recently, he drew this picture of her and his baby brother is holding the "niff" (knife) to ensure she doesn't come down from the UFO beam and when asked why he wasn't in the picture...I swear to you, his answer was, "cause I don't want to get my hands dirty". Are you kidding me, mob Jon????

So Jasmine apparently, breathes too loud, writes with her pencil to hard, doesn't put the caps back on her markers properly, rips paper out of her journal (EGAD) and swings her ponytail to the point of impailing my poor son. :) I am starting to save for their wedding. :)

Here is the drawing. I love it and if you will notice "JASMAN" is very small to depict she is far away. I love that he knows about depth.

Accessories for my camera

OMG I love these camera straps and I absolutely need to have one.

Check them out at My Funky Camera.


Dear all 5 of my readers:

Please support one of my greatest friends and buy these awesome shirts. I can not wait for the prozac latte shirt. You know I am buying that one.

While on the subject of shirts...

You should go to this site, I have bought 2 and I am just waiting for the delivery. Can not wait. I will be wearing my Drop Love not Bombs shirt with such pride of being a Canadian and living in a safe nation. I will post pictures of me sporting my new shirt and sweater when they come.

In no real order but pictures on my camera I love

Owen's first pony ride. He was very serious looking but kept saying, "Fun".
Jon loves riding horses and ponies but his allergies always get the best of him. Look how happy he looks even knowing that afterwards he will be sniffing up a storm and his eyes will burn. I love that kid.

Owen's first tumble. The dude did not even try to break his fall. He tripped on his feet and landed on his head and I witnessed his little noggin bounce. I ran and instantly picked him up only to hear Boris exclaim that he was bleeding from both his head and nose. Needless to say that my hoody will now need to be washed. He is ok but has a nice little mark on his forehead.

I love this picture of Jon hiding from Aunty Mel and they chase each other through the zoo.

I love my lil men.

Owen loved this goat so much as well as his buddy that he pet his eye.
I love that my boys are such loving children. It is also so sweet seeing Owen becoming into his own little man.

Jon has gotten so good at reading. Time is flying by so fast that I can not believe he is reading chapter books, loving them and comprehending them.

A couple weeks ago, after an extremely stressful time at work with everyone being away and auditors there, Boris took me to a wonderful dinner at The Melting Pot
If you have not been then you have to go. It is a fantastic fondue restaurant. We had a cheese fondue, main course fondue and a fantastic chocolate fondue too.

It snowed last week and Owen my little sweetheart wanted to go outside so badly but I packed all his winter clothes thinking winter was gone. I threw on his Boris hat and just had to take a picture of him wearing his daddys ECW hat.


I have become absolutely in love with my camera that I got for my Christmas and I really think that I have gotten better for the most part but there is so much to learn and so much I am sure I am missing.

I want to make sure I capture all the memories of our trip that I started searching for a great blog to follow and I discovered this blog. It is called Momtog Blog.

I discovered it today and they were giving having a giveaway yesterday that I missed but I really think that I may purchase their unmanual because after many you tube videos and professionals talking to me like I know what I am doing just because I have a camera is getting pretty frustrating. All I really use are the automatic settings and I want to get off that but have no idea what P, M etc stand for.
