5 years

It's really hard to believe that Luke and I have been married for 5 years.. had two kids...Luke has 2 degrees and now we've bought our first house. The years seem to just go by faster and faster. I sure hope the next 5 slow down a little! In another 5 years I'll be (wouldn't you like to know).... Dylan will be 8 and Caleb 5.

Blog VS Facebook

Well now that I've been introduced to the wonderful world of Facebook....who has time to blog (well besides Liz). So I thought to myself maybe, just maybe there is still someone out there that reads my blog. In that case this one is for you!
The summer has once again flown by and I'm left thinking about how am I going to cram everything I wanted to do in the next 2 weeks. We are going camping one last time and I still want to make it out to the water slides!!! YIPEE!!
So here's a few shots from our day at the lake.

WE caught the sillies!

Fun Times

Time for my monthly blog... Now this is getting really ridiculous!! I should be at least be doing a blog once a week (or once a day like Liz). I think I've lost the drive for blogging because I don't have my camera. I've been without it since we returned from Punta Cana. It's in Ontario somewhere at some Nikon shop..where some people with teeny tiny fingers are fixing my flash!....sure hope it returns soon. I don't want to miss anymore "Kodak moments".

About Due

Tough little guy!!

Water bugs

Caleb's First Tractor ride

I guess I 'm about due for another monthly post. Anyone who is still checking out my blog thanks for being patient. We have had a very busy month lots of time outside trying to keep the boys out of the grandparents hair. The move in date is still set for the 13th of July... its a Friday which makes our move date FRIDAY THE 13TH. So here are a few pictures from the last little while in our life. Last week Caleb had his first visit to the hospital (accident related) he had quite the gash above his eye and needed some "crazy glue" (the latest in stitch technology). I'm just surprised that it took him over a year to have his first injury. He is such a bruiser! Take care y'all and hope you are enjoying the heat!!! It's 37 right now!!!

Nana is CRAZY!!!

Happy Birthday Dylan

Today is my little boys third birthday. I have mixed feelings about the day (of course) I'm happy that he's growing up but on the other hand where has the first three years of his life gone?

Dylan you have made the past three years such a wonderful journey. You have taught me to love in a way I never thought possible. You can have me laughing one minute and crying the next. You make me so proud to be your mother. You will always be my little Bub! I love you Dylan and I wish you the Happiest Birthday ever.

Go Christa...Go Christa!!!!

Work it Girl!!!!

We're Back

Luke and I had an amazing time. We were sad to leave the beautiful weather, but anxious to return to our children!! A very big thank you to Nana and Papa for taking such great care of Dylan and Caleb....Caleb looks well fed!! And to Auntie Jana for driving in from Calgary and spoiling the usual! The week in the Dominican was filled with MANY fun adventures. Here are just a few pictures from our trip. We hope to do it again in the not too distant future.

Hola Mis Amigo's

Well after a very long 48 hours, we finally made it to the Dominican Republic (DR). Even though we arrived in Punta Cana at approximately 8:30 p.m we still had time for a terrific supper buffet and a midnight swim in the ocean! Today has been our first day in the sunlight - which we have put to good use by boogie boarding, snorkeling, eating and...occasionally drinking! We hope everyone is doing well in Canada, and we look forward to seeing you in about a week.

Blast OFF

Here's a little story to make you laugh....
Dylan calls me from upstairs, " Mommy , Mommy I found you a coupon." Now myself always being one for a good bargain I race up the stairs to see what my thrifty son found. There in the bathroom is my 3 year old son holding a TAMPON not a Coupon! He was so proud of himself that I didn't have the heart to take it away...I figured really what's the harm? I head back downstairs to finish getting ready when I hear... 3...2...1... Blast off. I head back upstairs to find Dylan with unwrapped tampon in hand all dimensions of the tampon fully extended and the string hanging down. Look mom its a space ship! What can you do but laugh!

Hair Cut Anyone??

So back in December Dylan had his last hair cut. We decided to grow out his handsome red curls to see what would happen.... Needless to say it was CRAZY hair so we finally chopped it all off. Here are some before and after shots. Caleb is next on the hit list!
