{Mini Reunion}

Last week thanks to facebook I was re-united with 2 friends from high school. It was great to see them again and to update each other on our lives and remember the past. Our lives have each taken us in different directions over the past 15 yrs (ouch) but we can still get together and have a good laugh together. We hope to be able to get together again when our dear friend Phonnaly moves back from Toronto in about a month.

{My first YW to get married}

Shannon and her dad Barry

I had the privilage of attending the wedding of one of the girls I taught Young Women's too. I am so proud of Shannon. She has grown into a beautiful woman. Thinking of all those lessons we had about marriage and the type of person she wanted to be, she has done a great job.

I wish the best for her and her husband as they embark on the amazing journey of marriage. I look forward to seeing her family grow in the years to come.

{Black and White Cafe Night}

A fab night of music and socializing.
My only wish is that my Hubby could have been in attendance.

It was a fun night of Jazz music and Cheesecake. A time for friends to just hang out and socialize in an ADULT only setting. Nice to get out with no kiddos once in a while.


{Good Bye Neon HELLO Vitara}

Time to move on up. My poor Neon has done us good. I bought this car in 1998, just before meeting my husband. It was my first car that I purchased. DH has fixed probably EVERTHING that could possibly break on her. She was stollen once and recovered, broken into countless times and still she kept on going for us. The engine has about 320,000 kms on it. WOW!! We also just had it pass air care. We just did not know how much longer it was gonna do us and with a new baby on the way it was due to break down.
The kids were sad to say good-bye to the Neon. They ALL have come home from the hospital in this car after they were born. But once they saw the replacement they were all smiles again.
One last ride.

BUT... a deal came up that we could NOT refuse and we are now the proud owners of a 2000 Grand Vitara with only 81,000 kms on it, and it is soooo SWEEET!! Sean is one Happy Hubby to be able use this as his commuting vehicle.

Parked at Grandpa's House until we decide what to do with it. Any takers?

{Early Arrival}

Some of you know that my best friend Tricia and I were pregnant and due only 3 days apart. Well to our surprise she gave birth to a beautiful little boy 6 weeks early. I figured Tricia just HAD to be first. lol

He is so adorable and I fell in love with him INSTANTLY. Baby Adam has been blessed with an extra chromosome #21. Which means he has Down Syndrome. There is no doubt in everyone's mind that he is a special gift from Heavenly Father for the Price family and for those that love the Price Family. They will have some challenges and hurdles to go through, but I am sure that Adam is going to be an amazing joy for them and for our family. My children love Jayna, Jacob and Aliza and I know they are going to LOVE Adam as well.

I know that Tricia is going to be the PERFECT mom for Adam.

{Girls Sleepover}

A much needed girls weekend. We had soooo much fun. Who knew this 8 month pregnant woman could stay up until 4:30am. We stayed in an amazing time share in Birch Bay. It view was beautiful but the view of all our food was just as good. We stayed up ALL night doing what we do best...TALK. I don't think there was a subject we did not cover. It was so relaxing just to be away and not be thinking about KIDS. Our husbands are all amazing and we were so appreciative of them for watching our kids while we got some time away. I think among all of us we left about 23 children behind. WHOA!! ya now you know how much we ALL needed to get away for a night.

Then next morning we slept in got our selves pretty and then went out for lunch at the Olive Garden...YUM. A quick power shop at Target and we were on our way home.

The View from the Patio.

THE FOOD!! We know how to partay!!

Something I managed to whip up for the girls. We did mini pedi's all night.

Angie really enjoying the foot bath.
Kathy and Ginny cuddling up in the chair.

What a FAB night. We have to do this again.
