The War is Over...

We heard this.. but aren't believers.. We are readying our troops!!:)

P.S. For moms with boys these 'Nerf' guns are the BOMB.. (ha,ha) Take all the same bullets and my boys could play with them all week long.. An $8 investment plus $10 for 91 bullets and you are set...

Its 7:30 AM on Saturday Morning.. DO you know where your SON is?

Yep... HOCKEY!!! We have asked about this day, and waited for it all week long.. And i had some pretty cool dreams about sleeping in with my girlie while the "BOYS" went to Hockey.... until this little man asked me if i would please come and watch him... (ok)... Except for the early morning ice times i think i could get into being a hockey mom...

P.S. And we went and checked out the rink at the Hidden Hut... Score.. So now you know where we'll be ....

P.P.S First photo with my new Iphone so you'll have to be patient while i get the hang of this :)

What A Difference A Day Makes

Sometimes its the little things that make all the difference ...

Flowers from hubby.. And a thorough basement clean up job !!!

A "Sorry Mommy" with the biggest bear hug ever !!

An invitation to come and sit in his "Foret"!!

And a little girl that wouldn't go to sleep without being snuggled!!

Happy Monday Everyone!!!

For some reason Monday is the not my favorite day of the week.. Its laundry day, and grocery shopping day... and my kids decided to add "Clean UP Day"...  I must say upon seeing this little mess I sat down and had a little cry..

P.S. I also have two little boys for sale... Looking for a "Quick" Sale.

Long Boarding ....

Since my friend Letisha started this... "can't believe he is mine " thought... And her sister Amanda added the pic to her blog of her little "beauty".. (not that i can at all match those girls for their photography skills ... but) i thought i would add mine.. Of course he stole my heart 4 years ago... But look out world..

Cold Weather Thoughts

Just a little note to my husband  - some cold weather ponderings...

Have i told you how much it means to me to have someone who provides so well for us, how much this cozy warm house filled with childrens laughter warms my heart,
Have i told you how strong i think you are... especially on days like today (the first chilly days of fall) when you head off to work.. outside .. without complaining
Have you noticed how much the kids love when you come home... and how when you are late at night.. Isaac will be sleeping in our bed waiting for you... and Jace just simply refuses to go to bed... and Brooke wakes up over every little noise
I know i joke about being married with kids.. while you live the single life.. (i hope you know that is a joke.. if it wasn't you wouldn't be at work today.. you wouldn't take the packed bag lunch... and you wouldn't have already checked in on us 5 times..

So while we are warm inside enjoying a lazy chilly day... you are working hard for us.. Luv You!!

Isaac Turns 4

A little conversation with Isaac about what he would like at his birthday party this year...
"Mommy... i want a horse cake... oh.. and sushi... AND a sleepover.. kay!!

Alright.. So that's how it was..I found a great recipe for 'mock sushi'.. and all the boys decided that they really DID like sushi. ( 9 little boys for the night :) And soo much fun. We had potato races, a rousing game of hockey.. (oh and many, many gun fights).. I decided not to buy the caps that went with the guns...

Note to self: No noise adding devices at a little boys party.. especially a sleep over..

Really the party was so much fun.. Isaac even did what little kids do at sleepovers and didnt go to bed until 1 am.

Happy 4th Birthday Isaac

It is hard to believe that pretty much right now our 'Isaac Man' entered the world. Its been an amazing 4 years and although the endless amounts of sleep, spontaneous trips anywhere, and time to spare were nice... this gig called 'motherhood' is pretty much the best.. No one can ever prepare you for it.. (thank goodness) but no one tells you how much it changes you forever.  I was not prepared for how much it changes your heart. And this little man was a wonderful start.. I can hardly believe that the days spent staring at him sleeping, and cooing and smiling are over... and he has been replaced with this little guy.. Most of the time he is my biggest helper.. (even so young he is very good at trips to the garbage, clearing the table, helping with Brooke, and on and on... ) We are looking forward to year 4.. Already he has a list of all the things he's going to do this year... (pretty typical boy.. most of them involve sports :) Lately he has been crawling into bed at about 10 with me.. and with just a sheepish little smile he says .. "Just until Daddy comes".. be still my heart.. and this is why us moms love our little boys..

Brooke's 1st Birthday Party

I'm not sure why the pregnancy of your child feels like 4 years and your babies first year of life feels like 4 weeks.. but it does.. And with each successive child... and the question "is this one your last"... you tend to hold on a bit tighter... I had so much fun planning her pretty party in pink... With all the busyness of summer we opted for a party at the cabin.. (and who better to invite than all your cousins).. I will miss her as a baby.. It feels now that she has entered the 'moving' stage that she has less time to sit and cuddle and read, and just enjoy each others company.. Alas.. but we are loving the new excitement that shines in her eyes.. Happy Birthday Beautiful... We are forever thankful you completed our little family...
Someday it will not matter how big my house is, how much money is in the bank, or where i have travelled.. only that I have been important in the life of a child...
