aww...baby Holly!

My wonderful friend Tabitha was in town for a few days, and I got to meet her gorgeous baby girl for the first time! Talk about an adorable baby (we expected no less!). There is nothing like the comfortable feeling you get when spending time with old friends...it doesn't matter if it's been a week or a year (or five...) since you last saw them...it feels like you just saw each other yesterday. Can't wait until you relocate Tab, so I can see you way more often!

Here Kitty Kitty Kitty!!!

we're a foster family...for six kittens and their mom! The SPCA is often looking for families to foster animals, so we thought it would be a fun experience! I would like to see myself still not owning a cat when we're done with this...but, can't make any promises...they're awfully adorable!

this is Findlay...I think he's the cutest!

I could not ask for more...

as the photographer in the family...I don't often get in on the shots...which bothers me sometimes, as my boys are so precious to me...and I'd love to have some of our moments captured...we had a great time at Sun Peaks this weekend, and I asked Brian to grab Parker's camera and take our picture. When I looked at it...the words to one of my favorite songs came immediately to mind - it's SO how I feel about my boys...

I could not ask for more than this time together
I could not ask for more than this time with you
And every prayer has been answered
Every dream I've had's come true
Yeah, right here in this moment
Is right where I'm meant to be
Here with you here with me

We're all hanging out this weekend at Sun Peaks...Brian's dad is here, as well as my parents & my bro...the boys are loving every minute of it!

It's LIVE!!!

Finally, I'm so excited to share my brand new website! Still working out a few details, one of them is that on the splash (front) page, you have to scroll down to get to the "enter site" button. I've been working on this since early January - it's the first time I've ever worked on my own website...and I'm kind of proud of it! So please, check it out, and come back often. And...keep watching, there may be something else new coming soon as well...

It's been awhile...

not that I haven't been taking photos...just too lazy to upload them here! Had a fun day with some friends at the cabin yesterday...it was a perfect winter day, hanging out, gt racing, smokies by the fire, ice fishing...all cozy and warm and tired out on the drive home - the stuff memories are made of!

blog blocked...

I think it must be the winter blues - I just feel so blog challenged lately! Everytime I think about sitting down and doing a blog post...I instantly try and come up with ten different things to do. So, forgive me for being so lazy...hopefully, I'll get motivated soon! For now, here's a few pictures of B and I hanging out on Sunday with G & Tucker...it was one of those textbook perfect winter afternoons...

aquatics for arthritis

my boys are were all in a really neat fundraiser tonight called Aquatics for Arthritis...our club is hoping to raise $10 000.00 towards arthritis research (considering we have less than 50 kids...this is a pretty big goal!). We're over halfway there, and have two weeks left to collect pledges. It was similar to a mini swim meet, and it was G's first time competing. You can see in the photos...he's a little uncertain! Keaton and Parker did a race together (where they're diving)...they had to swim 100 metres holding hands, and taking as few breaths as possible. K swam halfway across the pool before coming up for air - and P kept coming up. I was confused, until P told me after that he couldn't stop laughing no matter how hard he tried!

If you'd like to pledge the boys - please let me know!

New Years Day...

I LOVE watching the Polar Bear Swim...it's such a crazy event...

This year was almost balmy, so not quite as wild as some of the previous years...but still, there's NO chance you'd catch me jumping through a hole in the ice!
