:: Our Little Boys ::

:: Haircuts in the House ::

:: Along with spring cleaning comes new fresh haircuts -- Both of the boys received one yesterday. This was Cole's first haircut, so I just trimmed off his "Donald Trump" comb-over. It was due time. He still has quite the head of hair that's for sure! ::

:: Poor Jacob got a little buzzed due to the fact that I thought 1/2 inch was long enough for the top of his head...um, not so much! Ah well, his hair grows so fast it doesn't matter! I love it short, it always looks so "boyish"and since he's a boy that's a good thing! ::

:: Yes, this is a picture of Jacob hitting Cole over the head...it's more like love taps :) ::

:: My happy little guys - sans the two year old attitude that Jacob has acquired ::

:: Have a great day ya'll - I'm off to a kidswap & Superstore (I know I'm crazy - Superstore on a Saturday, what am I thinking?!?!) and to finish up some office work. Hopefully we see some blue sky today, it seems promising ::


:: Happy Birthday Mum L ::

:: Today is My MIL's birthday --- 50-somethingish ::
:: She now has three Grand babies and 5 kids (3 by blood and 2 by love) :: :: Happy Birthday Mum ~ We pray your year is blessed with love and joy as you watch your Grand babes grow and know their Nana better ::
:: Look forward to celebrating with you tonight! ::
:: Happy Birthday ::

:: Here I am ::

:: We have been busy around here and this week has just taken off on me! ::

:: Both the boys now have colds..serious, horrible sounding coughs. Poor little guys. Cole is trying his best to crawl and having great success. He just turned 5 months. I'm not ready for him to crawl. Hopefully it takes him a couple months to get it down to a fine science! ::

:: We have been, okay I have been working hard on getting the basement - more specifically my "scrap/spare room" that turned into the dumping ground for everything in the basement while we were getting the carpet installed into ship, shop shape ::

:: I spent yesterday organizing and going through different boxes that have been packed for almost a year now. So to say the least I am purging. If I haven't used it, it's gettin' chucked! But don't tell Paul...he likes to keep things...lots of things ::

:: Jacob is truly enjoying his new space downstairs and I love giving him that space. We were both ready for him to have that freedom and he is enjoying it. He comes upstairs every once in a while when he needs me to fix a toy that has come apart and I find that I spend time downstairs concentrated on playing with him because there are no other distractions - I am so blessed that we are able to live in the home we do ::

:: I'm off to finish up our taxes so I can submit them tomorrow morning and then tonight me and my love have a date...the place is a surprise to me - how nice! ::

:: Have a fabulous, wonderful, sunshiny day! ::


:: Easter Fun ::

:: I just realized that I didn't post anything about our Easter weekend...and what a weekend it was! ::
:: We actually started celebrating on Palm Sunday - We were invited over to our friends the Bakers for brunch, and we had the pleasure of visiting with the VanHarmelen's as well ::

:: We attended an Easter lunch with a whole bunch of friends ( + 27 kids ) on Good Friday, then Saturday was the annual Easter Blast @ church followed by the purchase of our new dining room suite (more on that later) :::: Saturday night we went over to our friends place (M & L) and had "Passion & Paska". I made the Paska (thanks to Lovella's recipe) and we watched the Passion of the Christ...Such a horrible movie, but such a great reminder of what Christ did for us. I am truly thankful ::

:: Sunday was spent at my parents place celebrating with lots of family & lots of food...it was a great time. My cousins Robert & Charleen have a little guy named Trevor who is 6 months older than Jacob so it was great to see them interact and have a very large Easter egg hunt thanks to Grammie! Oh what fun! ::
:: Then on Monday we headed to Paul's parents place for dinner...except I don't have any pictures from that event. I forgot my camera! Argh! ::
:: So there you have it our Easter all wrapped up - I hope you enjoyed your Easter and had reasons to celebrate that were greater than bunnies, chocolates & eggs. I had a greater reason to celebrate, because HE died for me and HE is risen! ::

:: Almost Done ::

:: March is almost gone -- I can't believe it!!! Now come April Showers, nah, it's not that bad. April has many fabulous events sure to keep us busy (but not too busy) and after April comes May; and May is usually such a beautiful month here in Vancouver ::
:: Well, as I sit here and write Ray & his friend are installing our basement carpet. Me and my friend...okay maybe it was more like my friend & I prepared the basement for the carpet installation for the better portion of the day yesterday and Saturday for that matter! ::

:: Paul finished re-building our rickety stairs that made the basement feel so much like a basement instead of an extension of our home & knocked the tiles out from around the brick that surrounds the fire. He (that being "my friend" aka Paul) installed the laminate floor in the kids play room (however, this went much smoother once I was helping him, ha ha that's at least what I told him...he said it was true, I told him he was being nice), I painted the kids playroom to match the blue in the rest of the main basement :::: It was a group effort to get everything moved out of the main room so that the carpet could be laid and voila...we're ready for carpet! Oh, and notice the new light fixture...Dad was over last week to install those as I didn't want to light myself up by trying to install them myself...and well, Paul isn't much of an electrician! ::

:: I cannot wait till my Paul returns from work today to help me arrange the furniture and truly make the basement part of our home instead of a really large junk drawer! ::

:: I am off today to go State side and take Grammie & Grampy to the Bellingham airport so they can continue on to Maui, via Seattle -- I've lost a bit of weight, do you think I can fit in the suitcase??? I'm sure that Jacob could drive Cole back home, heck he knows which passport is his, why couldn't he drive as well!?!?? He's very advanced ya know! ::

:: Okay all joking aside I must go and do some bill paying and laundry folding prior to our day trip ~ Have a great day ya'll & enjoy the sunshine, it's a beautiful one here! ::
