This and that

Life is super crazy right now but keeping things in check is absolutely the upmost importance to me. I am the biggest believer in not sweating the small stuff, not looking on the dark side but seeing the bright.
Those of you know who I am talking about and know that I am there for you through anything and I am not going anywhere. I will be forever your cheerleader even when you don't want me to be.

We are getting our pictures done again this year from the incredible Becky from Just for You Photography. I can't wait for October! You will all get pictures this year for Christmas again.

Bedtime Annoyance

Ever since Heather mentioned 2 beds instead of one "couple" bed, I can't stop thinking about it. I love my husband and I love "sleeping" with him but man I do NOT love his sleeping habits that I have yet to get used to. He listens to Howard Stern in bed and I can not sleep listening to talk radio much less Howard and his yelling, swearing, obnoxious guests/staff and himself. I wait patiently till he goes to sleep so I can turn it off. He has been having a sore back and shoulders lately so he has been tossing and turning causing the bed to become similar to the 80's version of a waterbed. Oh and let's not forget his vulgar body pillow that he MUST sleep with ... It rivals Owen's "dirty" blankie.

Now I am no better as I like to read with the light on and I love to talk in bed so I am sure that we grate on each others nerves with our bed habits.

Let's bring back the Fred and Wilma beds

Balloon Artists

Most boys ask for swords or balloon dragons...not mine! "Can I have dragonfly wings please?" Man I love Jon.

Disclaimer to the haters

My blog is usually full of rosy sunshine and love but I suddenly have to cloud my blog with this disclaimer saying that this is in fact MY blog with MY views. You are certainly entitled to your opinions as that is the great thing about free speech but what I put on my blog is my truth, my life and my story. If you don't like it...don't read it. This isn't mandatory school is my life for my friends and family to read.

...Now back to your regularly scheduled program.

Sunday Night

There is nothing more fun than family game night and now that Boris is not working those darn Best Buy overnights, he gets to partake in the joy. This weekend we played Spongebob Cranium. It is good that Braden isn't competitive because the other 3 of us are. Needless to say that Boris and I did the dance of joy as we tied for first.

I had so much planned for this weekend in terms of fun outdoor stuff but the weather just really has been very uncooperative this summer. It feels like we haven't had much of a summer at all and with the BC forest fires, it is even worse right now.

So my good friend and second mother to Owen is smack in the middle of Ramadan right now and my heart goes out to her...not because I feel bad that she is fasting: I actually think she is a really strong woman who believes in her faith and hold her in high regard to do this from sunrise to sunset. What I do sigh for her is her lack of being able to have a dirty chai during the in a testament to my love for her...I will drink double my share until she can drink again. I love you Heather.

Promise to Blog Regularly!

Ok so the summer has come and gone and I have really neglected my blog.

The summer held lots of fun times and we went on an amazing summer holiday with Braden and Jon. Owen stayed home this time.

We went on a road trip to Las Vegas, Coronado Bay, San Diego, Los Angeles, Anaheim. We had so much fun.

A few weekends ago we went to Jurassic Forest. This place was very neat. All three kids loved it. It is set up so that you can walk around on these nicely built walkways careful not to disturb the forest that they have the dinosaurs built in. They are motion sensored and my favourite part was when Owen would patiently wait for the dinosaur to move. His pose made me giggle each time.

I can't believe that there is only 2 weeks left in the summer break before school starts. Braden and Jon both start grade 3. I can't believe that these boys are growing so fast.

We also spent a day at the beach. It is Alberta Beach and not as great as Allan Beach but a Beach is a Beach in my opinion.

Speaking of beach. We have decided that this spring break we are going to go to either Cancun or Jamaica with Jon and Owen. We would love Braden to come but he is not allowed. Too bad, he was dissapointed when he found out that he is not allowed to come. The hotel we are looking at in Jamaica is a Breezes hotel and has quite the waterpark he would love.

What I am most excited about is New Years Eve in Jasper at the Jasper Park Lodge with my whole family...all three boys for 2 cuddly nights.

Ok so all that being said...I PROMISE TO UPDATE REGULARLY NOW!
