Photo Shoot

This is just a sample of the family photos we had taken last week..... boy was it fun!!!

Flour Fun

The other day I sat the boys down on a large piece of plastic. I gave them each spoons, bowls, and a couple cups of flour. They sat there stirring and mixing for almost 45 minutes! Dylan said he was making a cake and was a little confused when instead of putting it in the oven I threw it in the garbage.

My sister has a part time job at starbucks and because it's the christmas season they are offering a christams discount of 40% off all their overpriced goodies. So being a proud supporter of Starbucks I decided to BUY some things. One coffee maker, one grinder, 5 tumblers (gifts), 8 coffee cups and one cream and sugar set. Well I think that should do us for awhile.

5:30 AM

Wow it's early...and what the heck am I doing up? And what the heck am I blogging for? Well Caleb had been up 4 times already. Three nursing sessions and one tylenol dose later, and I 'm catching up on some blog reading and updating mine. I've also heard Luke's alarm twice...SO I"M AWAKE! Caleb is betting three teeth at once, lucky me my poor nipples! It's so cold here -39 to be exact. I don't think I've ever experienced weather this cold before. Well Maybe I have up in Tumbler Ridge but I don't remember, I think thats a good thing. Luke is off to work..poor guy, sure hope the truck starts. We tried to head out to Chucky Cheese last night for a little gaming fun and a break from the house...but no luck we only make it a block before giving up the roads were traffic mayhem. Thankgoodness for 4 wheel drive! Today I think I'll stay at home and clean (whats that?) Dylan will miss preschool today too. Well Good night again YAWN.......

Three candle parties and one airplane ride later the three of us are safe at home. We had a really great time in Kamloops. Everyone in the airports thought I was crazy to travel with two Children under the age of 3. Our next trip to the Loops we'll be staying longer and hopefully I won't have so many parties to do...not that I don't want you all to book a know what I mean. Wednesday night was my first party. Karen came with me for moral support and to do a lot of the talking..(as usual) thanks Karen. Liz's Party went great no pressure on me. You were a great host Liz, thanks! Thursday night was Karen's party..I guess we should have told everyone that we don't have sars and maybe more would have come... It was great to see you Jan! Saturday night was the last party for this trip. Thank you to everyone that came to my parties hope you enjoy your candles and we'll see you all soon. On Sunday night Christa, Jordan, Dylan and myslef headed out for a HOT date. When I asked Dylan if I could take him out on a date he said, "sure mommy." And as we were getting ready to go he made sure I knew that Caleb was not aloud to join us by stating, "Caleb stays here mommy." We went to the movies and saw Happy Feet, it was really BAD!!!! The boys were bored and I wanted to leave because it was so dull. After the show we went to Boston Pizza for dinner.. The more time I spend in Kamloops and more I wish we would move back... I guess time will tell. Well good night I'm sick and Caleb is still getting up 100 times a night. Anyone know of a free nanny??

It's Party Time!!!

So I've safely arrived in Kamloops kids and candles in tow!!
It was a great trip but the kids always get cranky around Salmon Arm. I'm getting mentally prepared to have three candle parties. Liz's wednesday night, Karen's thursday night and my mom's saturday night. Liz's party will be my first ever...I must admit I am a little nervous. I think I'll need a vacation when I'm done... Dominican here I come! And the kids are staying home!

Pop-A-Weiner !??!

I know that many of you don't know the term Pop a weiner so I'll explain.... Today Dylan and Luke were playing cars on the floor. Luke's car went racing across the floor lifting up it's front end. Luke shouted with excitment, "Pop a wheely!" Then it was Dylan's turn his car went racing across the floor and he shouts, "Pop a weiner!"

The other Love in my life....

You all might think he is some Cheesy Boy Band Singer. I think Josh Groban is one of the most talented male singers out there. Tuesday his new CD 'Awake' came out and yes, I rushed out to buy it....

This is one of my favorite songs along with February Song....
It's all I've been listening. My poor neighbors! I've heard he is going on tour and yes I will be going. Of course Luke doesn't know this yet....I think the saying goes Happy wife..Happy Life.

Caleb... SLOW DOWN!!!!

With Caleb I find myself wanting him to stay at the baby stage for longer. I've come to realize no matter how hard I try he's just going to grow up. With Dylan we were always so excited to help him advance to the next development stage....walking...talking....toilet training. And now with Caleb I just want things to go nice and slow. BUT THEY ARE NOT!

On October 2 Caleb pulled himself into a standing position. Now he's not only standing but maneuvering from coffee table to couch while standing. Two weeks ago he started climbing up the stairs (all the way up 15 stairs.) I guess the only milestone I'd really be excited to see right now is sleeping through the night. He's still breast feeding and loving it! Yesterday I worked a full day at Dylan's preschool, so Caleb was without mommy for 7 hours. The day away made him extra needy in the night, and left mommy extra tired today.

We dressed both boys up this year. Dylan was Super Man and Caleb a bumble bee. We didn't do the door to door thing because it was around -15. We headed out to the mall...a little warmer. The only problem with trick-or-treating at the mall is now every time we go there Dylan thinks he can run into every store and ask for candy!!!!
