Wordless Wednesday

Guess who is 10 Months Old!!

Catching My Breath

Breathe In .... Breathe Out .... Breathe In .... Exhale Slowly .... Yes folks, that is the sound of my rapid breathing and trying to catch my breath in this whirlwind of a couple of weeks. We are back from our trip, which was fabulous by the way, and have been running ever since just to try and catch up on life. Between hospital visits for Masyn's kidney tests to Christmas shopping to Christmas parties to job interviews, life has been hectic but good for us. I have many stories and pictures to share with you all from our trip but that will just have to wait until Thursday.

Oh ... and something exciting may happen in our lives very soon and no .... I am not pregnant. I wish it were so but hubby is pretty firm about not having another. All should pan out within a day at which time I can share it with you all.

Until then, I hope that you are all doing well and I look forward to catching up on all that is going on in your lives.

And We Are Off!

The time has come and it is literally hours away. Our bags are packed, the cat is already lonely and we are counting the minutes until the early morning alarm clock starts screaming "Get Up!". Our wake up call is a little early ..... 3:00 am early! Ugh. But it is all worth it as we get to go on a trip!!

So my friends, I wish you all well for the next week. I, in the meantime will be sure to whoop it up for all of you. After all .... I DO get to shop at Target, go and eat in fabulous restaurants and will likely consume a few too many glasses of red wine as that what happens when we get together with these friends.

Chat with you all next Friday!! As my grandma would say, "Cheerio!"

Two More Sleeps!

The time has almost come and we will be off to the races! The ugh factor though is that our flight times have changed so we are now expected to be at the airport for 4:30 am on Wednesday ... ugh ... And, on our return flight home, rather than land at supper time, we are now expected to land at 11:45 pm. Hopefully customs will be kind to us and we can cart the kids off to home relatively fast.

We have been busy, busy, busy with all of the holiday festivities that are quickly approaching and getting ready for our trip. Yesterday, we attended the annual Hitmen Teddy Bear Toss and I can't believe that I forgot my camera!! There were just over 17,000 people in attendance and a total of 26, 919 teddy bears were tossed onto the ice when the first goal for the Hitmen was scored within the first ten minutes of the first period. The Lethbridge Hurricanes had broken that record that was set last year by the Hitmen (15,500 teddies) just last weekend by collecting 22,000. But, good hearted Calgarians and other southern Albertans stepped up to the plate and shattered that relatively fresh new world record! Stuffies were raining down on the ice and a few were bombing us in the back of the head. Kaelen had a hay day chucking the furry little creatures that landed on us down onto the people below us. Masyn on the other hand wasn't appreciating the noise nor the chaos that took place for the 20 minutes. She spent most of her time crying and placing her hands over her ears. And, I didn't score too many good mommy points as I couldn't stop laughing at Masyn's discomfort as she was so darn cute about it. The remainder of the hockey game was great for the Hitmen dominated the game and ended up winning by 6 - 2. It was a great afternoon and I am already looking forward to next year's game!!

So ... what does this Mommy want for Christmas? Amazingly nothing. And, as cheesy as this sounds, when you look at this picture, you may see why. How could I want for anything when I have two beautiful little perfect angels right here?
