{12 Days of Christmas Day 1-3}

Our family is receiving the 12days of Christmas. It is the first time we have EVER had this. It is so much fun to see what little treasure we will receive each night. The kids love hearing that knock on the door. Man, whoever it is is soooo FAST. WE have not caught them yet, hence we have NO IDEA who it is. So if you read this. THANK YOU THANK YOU.

Here are the first 3 things we have received:



{MOVIE NIGHT)

{Happy Birthday Tricia}

Well she finally did it she turned 30. YAY!! So what better way to celebrate than by LYING to her. tee hee. She milked the birthday thing all week. But little did she know there was a BIG surprise in store for her.

We had a surprise party for her planned so the ploy was... I invited them for dinner and then we were gonna go to a movie after. So dinner we had and then I made a story up about how I needed to go to our clubhouse cause i forgot something. TEE HEE. So i say "Come with me" and she does and VOILA we have a SURPRISE!!

We had a fun fun night of yummy food and "SERIOUS" Karaoke.






{Sushi YA YA Sisters}

We went out for our ANNUAL Christmas Sushi Dinner. We do this every December and exchange gifts as well. We went to a place in Downtown Vancouver. It was FABULOUS. There is a small grill that lets you cook your own meat. Along with all the GREAT sushi it was wonderful.

Great Friends, Great Food, Great Time.


K, are you really gonna eat THAT!!!

{Early Gifts}

I have known Lois since I was just little and she is sooooo generous to us and our children. She spoiled my children, they could hardly believe all the wonderful things they received. It was a fun afternoon. THANK YOU LOIS and TIM!!!




This is the gift that I made for Lois and Tim!! I love this quote.

{Pancake Breakfast with Santa}

Santa made a special visit to our school, along with it being PJ day. We had some yummy pancakes and finished just in time for school starting.

{Crafts, Snow Day, Cuddles}

What Weekend.
Friday night was a girls craft night. We made tiles.
Saturday the snow started and did not stop until Sunday evening. Church was canceled and residents in our area were asked to STAY home and off the roads.
Sunday we went out for a walk in the snow and E was soo pooped by the end of it all that he fell asleep on daddy.


My Girls


My Guys

{Birthday Breakfast}

C got to pick her breakfast on her Birthday Day. Guess what she picked? Chocolate Chip Pancakes of course. It is a family favorite.

Happy 6th Birthday!!


Later that night we had a Turkey Dinner and Uncle Chris and Evelyn joined us.

{Happy Birthday}

Happy 6th Birthday to my sweetheart.

Oh course Tinkerbell was the theme.

We made bracelets.
Played pass the wand.
Found the pixie dust.
Daddy shared some magic tricks.
FUN FUN FUN








FYI a fun and easy way to make bracelets. Pipe Cleaners and Beads. It saves having beads falling all over the place.

{Disney on Ice}

Nov. 23

I surprised the girls with Disney on Ice Princess Wishes. I kept it a surprise from them until we walked through the from doors of the Collisium. They could hardly believe it PRINCESSES EVERYWHERE. As we walked through the doors my oldest turns to me and says "Thank you mommy this is a GREAT surprise".

Grandma Luda came with us and the girls were spoiled all night long. Go BIG or Go HOME right. It was a fairytale. I let the girls wear there Halloween Costumes to the Event and I am soooo glad I did since ALL the lil girls were dressed up.

Of Course when Tinkerbell came out my oldest literally LEAPED out of her seat. Then Ariel made her appearance and lil C had a look of contentment. She was soo taken in by the whole thing.

Anyway, it was a very FUN MAGICAL evening. Thank you Disney on ICE!!

{Wall Words}

i am sooooo happy with how this turned out. My great friend Kristle has started a vinyl lettering business. SO MUCH FUN. I have been wanting to do our name and EST. 1999 for a long time so it was nice to be able to sit down with someone and get it just right. I LOVE VINYL. You can do so many wonderful projects with it. Can't wait to play some more.

She is just starting to get this up and running and once things get a bit more organized i will link her to my site. If you would like more info about vinyl lettering and would like to get in touch with Kristle just send me your email and I will forward it to her.

(Happy Birthday Abbi}

This is the winter princess party. Abbi was so cute on her special day. I am kicking myself cause it did not take a picture of the OH SO CUTE craft that angie had the kids do. So, I will describe it to you.

She took pointy ice cream cones and turned them upside down and used icing to stick them down. Then, the kids covered them in Green Icing and decorated them with different sprinkles so they looked like little Christmas trees. The kids loved making them and eating them later when we got home.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ABBI!! We love you.

{Happy Birthday Little Man}

Happy Birthday to my little man. I can hardly believe that he is ONE already. It has been a fast year and I have done my best to enjoy every moment.

So as tradition goes on your birthday you get your favorite breakfast. He just happens to be Chocolate Chip Pancakes. I think he just really likes to DIG out the chocolate Chips, but hey whatever it is HIS birthday.


Later in the evening it was time to celebrate with Family and Friends. The theme was Curious George, fitting for my curious little man.






The cake was "plate licking" worthy according to the Birthday Boy. Thanks to Grandma Turcott for pulling off another great cake. If you would like instructions for this cake they can be found on Martha Stewart.

We had "George's Orange Cream Punch" mmmmmmm that was YUMMY.

Orange Cream Punch

4 cups of vanilla ice cream
1 can of orange Juice Concentrate
1 2L bottle of lemon lime soda

Blend the ice cream and concentrate in a blender until well mixed. I just did this with a spoon, but whatever works for you.

Then in a punch bowl mix with the soda. Place some orange slices for decoration.


We had fun with good appys and the kids played "FEED George" i stamped little pictures of banana's and taped them around the room, then they had to find them and put them on the poster of George's face. They had lots of fun doing that.

Another 1st birthday done. Now to plan the girls parties coming up.

{Good-Bye Red Couch}

SNIFF SNIFF. I finally said good bye to this favorite. We have had it for about 5 yrs but the fabric was splitting. We purchased a used set of furniture about 6 months ago off of Craigs List, and it fits our needs. This Red couch was just not enough for our growing family.

We tried to find a home for it but no one needed a couch.;-( So, I kept the pillows and the rest was off to the DUMP. Sean even did a little sniff seeing it going into the trash compactor. But, on the brighter side of things we now have more space again and the set that I got for only $100 is FABULOUS.

Now I don't want ANYONE TELLING ME THAT THEY WOULD HAVE TAKEN IT. That will just sting. lol

{Winter Princess}

I love making cards so when a friend asked me to make some for her daughters Winter Princess Party, I was up for the challenge.

I had so much fun making this. Although, I really looked like a glittery snow princess after making 10 of these sparkly invites.


FYI I had to cover up the phone and email for privacy.
