Winter Wonderland

Santa Claus is comin' to town

A Lily post

If the bikini bottom fits...

Bed head baby!!

Sleepy boys...

I was cleaning in the kitchen, and thought Liam was in the living room watching cartoons. After a while it was a little too quiet, so I went to check on him. Liam had decided he was sleepy, and thought that a cuddle with Charlie in Charlie's crib was just what he needed...

Happy Birthday Lily!

Well, our baby girl is now a big two years old!! She is our little sweetie who loves to talk, sing, and dance. Lately she has been getting into playing dolls - such a girly thing to do! She is still our petite princess - just 25 lbs and 32.5 inches tall!

Here are some pics from her actual birthday and her birthday party:

Happy Halloween

We had a great time on Halloween on Friday. The kids had a blast trick or treating, although at the beginning neither of them quite got it. At the first house, Liam tried to give his treats to the person at the door (we threw a few in for him to get started), and Lily threw a fit because she wanted to eat everything as she was given it!! After a few stops, the kids got the hang of it and really enjoyed visiting the rest of the street. Everyone loved their costumes, and people got a kick out of the pot Liam carried to collect his treats. The best part though came when we arrived back home - both kids loved handing out treats to the kids at our door! We will have to remember that for next year...

Here are the best I could do, considering that Liam did not want his picture taken!

Family Visits

Lily and her favourtie Robyn.

Charlie and Grandma D.

Fun at the park

Not too many pictures to share from our trip to the park - the kids move so fast most of the pics are blurry!

Fright night

Don't you just love our little skeletons??

Our Thanksgiving entertainment...

Can you believe that after Thanksgiving dinner it snowed enough to build a snowman??

One Month with Charlie

Well, Charlie has been with us for one month already and we are starting to settle into a bit of a routine. :) He's been doing well adapting to the noise and busyness of Liam and Lily, and so far is doing really well being schlepped to playgroup, playgrounds, or preschool every day. He is starting to sleep better at night. He still doesn't have very long sleep periods, but at least now he doesn't stay awake for long periods in the middle of the night. We had a doctor's appointment last week and the little guy was already 11lbs 2oz (at 3 weeks) - I'm sure he is over 12 lbs at this point!!

Here are some pics:

And as an added bonus, a pic of Lily on her first night in her big girl bed (which is currently just her crib matress on the floor - LOL!)

The final countdown

My c-section date has been set! Baby will be arriving on September 3, unless he/she has other ideas and decides to come earlier. That is only 3 weeks away - YIKES!!!

Tutu cute!

Long story short, I was feeling crafty and made Lily a tutu! She loves it - and so does Liam. He wants me to make him a green one. LOL!!

Happy Canada Day

We spent Canada Day at the park today and had a great time! The weather was really nice - it was a bit windy, and a bit smoky, but still beautiful. The kids loved playing in the sand, and weren't at all afraid of getting in the cold water!

And here is Lily in the Canada Day dress I made for her:

Baby J

Okay, so the pics are small - you'll have to wait for me to hook up the scanner again to get some better ones! :)

And now for the external view. This was already a few weeks ago, so believe it or not, I am even bigger!

Liam goes fishing

Grandpa gave Liam a fishing rod last time we were up to visit, so when Grandpa came down here all the boys went to the creek to see what they could catch. They did manage to catch one fish which Liam was quite disgusted by - Grandpa was lucky enough to get that pic! The rest of you will have to make do with these:

Lily's first haircut

Well, we didn't have too much to cut, but Lily's hair was getting pretty fuzzy in the back so we decided it was time! She sat quite well for the haircut, and got quite a kick out of being sprayed with the spray bottle!
