We had a great Christmas with a house full of people. We've been hanging out with friends. Having some great times. Not much else to report. I don't even have any Christmas poop stories.
Maybe I'll have more to report tomorrow after I run a race tonight and go to the hockey game. Go Flames! Until then I'll leave you with some pictures.
Okay so no pictures right now. I can't seem to get it to work. I'll try again later.

Twas the week before Christmas
and all through the house,
all the creatures were stirring, but hope there's no mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
in hopes that Silly Santa soon would be there; (we've been practicing "s" words with Quinks hence the silly santa)
The Lobbsters were jumping on top of their beds
While visions of candy canes danced in their heads;
And that's as far as I've gotten. I'm looking forward to seeing the creativity from all you blog readers. This could be fun.

I was reminded at my eye appointment this week about what Quinten said about my eye pictures. The doc said he hasn't forgotten it and it keeps him laughing. I think the kid is obssesed with boobs, already.
Anyway I know sometimes we all need a little laugh. And if that is you today think about what Quinten said and imagine how embarrased I was.
Have a great, hopefully not too cold, Monday.

I feels so good to have them off. And no glasses, well most of the time. I think the left contact isn't quite right. But it has only been a week so I am still getting used to them again.
Anyway pictures to follow. I've kind of been a slacker on those.
Oh and the poop monster keeps striking! The magic tape needs to be found.

I've not always been a fan of pink. For awhile I would not wear pink. Now as I become more girly I'm liking it. So I'll start off with a festive pink background.
How is your weekend going? We got a lot accomplished yesterday in the way of Christmas shopping. Thanks to my parents for taking care of Taylor and Quinten. Most appreciated. Only a few little things left. We've all got Christmas jammies. Even Chris got into the spirit, well sort of. His are green so it counts. I love being on top of things. Who knew I could be organized. Now to get the Christmas cards addressed and then start the baking. And can't forget decorating. I think tomorrow might be a good day for that.
Hope all is well with all the blog readers. Don't forget to drop us a line so we can pop by blogs we don't know about.

Awesome Grandparents. I love how much time they spend with my kids and the effort they make to spend those times with them.
I can always count on them.
They make me feel special.
I love that they still call me Squirt.
The list can go on and on.
I'm feeling a little sentimental today and wanted my Mom and Dad to know how much I love them and appreciate them.
(Now everyone knows my name)

I'm interested to see who's reading about us.

This year Chris surprised me with a day shopping with some friends, lunch, a pedicure and supper. I had all these plans for the day, as Quinten's party is tonight. I thought we were going out as a family and then to kids klub. Chris had arranged the day, with some help from Joy, Kathy, Karri and my Dad. A very big thank you to my friends and family for the awesome day. I felt like a queen. Then the evening was topped off with great food with great friends. I can't express in words how happy and excited I was. When I opened my card from Chris I cried. He is so thoughtful. I love you Sweets!

Quinten is 26 1/2 pounds and 35 inches. Spencer 17lbs 10 oz and 28 3/4 inches.
I would like to know the secret to eating whatever one wants and not gaining anything. Not good for a baby but good for me. :)
Have a great night.

Taylor was pretty calm this morning about it being her birthday but she was pretty excited to be able to take a special birthday snack for all the kids in the class. And again she was very thankful for the bear cookies.
We love you sweetie and are so proud of who you are becoming.

This getting up early thing is going to get old real quick though. Somebody was a little bit sleepy this afternoon. She'll get used to get up early sooner or later.
Hope every body's first day went off with out a hitch.
Pictures to come. Too busy invitation making.

Tomorrow is the day that 90210 sort of airs again. Every Wed when the original 90210 was on, Jordan and I would watch it together. I'll have to give this round a try. I wonder if he will be watching too?

Have a super hump day tomorrow!
My middle baby is doing pretty well with potty training, except for the pooping. Why is that one so hard? Can't believe he is almost 3.
And my youngest baby is getting close to full on walking. And he is almost 1. Just call me a party planning Mama.
At least with Lobbster birthdaypalooza coming up I'll have lots to post about.
Thursday, August 21, 2008
Potty training is going fairly well. Okay except for the pooping. But we went out yesterday and today and Quinks was dry the whole time. Woohoo! On to only 1 in diapers.
Well I should probably do something. Not feeling very motivated lately. When the weather is crappy I feel like curling up and watching a movie or right now the Olympics, with my punks instead of cleaning and laundry.
Have a great night!

My baby aslo took his first steps a few days ago. But now he is being stubborn. When I stand him up he just laughs and looks at me with this silly little grin. As if to say I know what to do but don't feel like it.
We've also started potty bootcamp for Quinks. He's done well so far. Dry through the night and naps. And we even went out for a few hours today and had him in underwear. Crazy I know. We're armed with skittles and lots of underwear. I'm crossing my fingers that it sticks.
Taylor starts school in less than 2 weeks. Hopefully I don't make a fool of myself from crying. My baby is growing up so fast.
Well I should get back to the mountain of laundry. Will it ever end?
Have a great hump day!
Thursday, August 07, 2008
Then to add to the saddness I don't know when the next time I will get to see my brother Jordan. Seriously why do people keep moving away. Luckly we still have some more great friends left.
I think my count down to Ontario will begin very soon.
We love you guys!

I don't have much to tell. We are going to Spamelot tomorrow so maybe I'll have something interesting to tell after that.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend.
Happy Heritage Day!

I can't wait to get back to running.
Monday, July 07, 2008
Chris was awesome. So encouraging along the way as I was crying and fighting to finish. He kept reminding me of what I've done to get to this point and the accomplishments I've made. I love him so much and I'm so thankful for him.

The parade was followed by naps for everyone, even me the non napper. After that refresher we got ourselves to the stampede grounds. A few rides were enjoyed by the kids, corn dogs for the wee ones, cotton candy for the kiddlets, bbq beef sandwich thing for Chris, lemonade, Cowboy beef sundae for me followed up with mini donuts which I will mention are not all gone. And I love mini donuts but restrained. Quinten does not share my love of mini donuts. He had one and said no thank you yucky(actually it came out as lucky but we knew what he meant). Who doesn't like mini donuts?
So a good day was had by all. Today will be a relaxing day followed by the stampede concert at church.
Thursday, July 03, 2008
And especially to my best friend, my husband, who hates running but is supporting me by running with me. He said he would even be my water and energy substance carrier. What a guy! Love you Sweets!
And as an added note the running attire has now changed. I bought a running skirt. Who's girly now?
Happy parading and stampeding! I'm like a little kid when it comes to the parade, even though we have to be up at the crack of dawn.

I forgot to post on Monday. Spencer is now 9 months old weighing in at 17 lbs 12 oz and 27 1/2 inches. At least that is what we got him as. He goes tomorrow for his 9 month check so I'm sure the Doc will be more accurate.
Well I'm feeling kind of tired. Must...go...lay...down.
Thursday, June 26, 2008
So it was an interesting night. Did anything interesting happen to any of you? I'd like to hear some interesting stories.
Tuesday, June 24, 2008
And yesterday at soccer she took the ball away from the other team. That is huge. She doesn't really get in there because she doesn't want to take the ball from anybody. Gotta love that. So those of you who have seen her play soccer know how big of a deal this was. You should have seen the huge and I mean huge smile she had on her face. Could make a mother cry. Okay so I did. I'm so proud of my girl. I'll post some pictures later.

Today I'm off to do the dreaded bathing suit shopping once again. Wish me luck. This post baby body is proving to be hard to cover up the right way, so I feel comfortable and not an old lady.

Now that we are having some heat in our day the kids wanted to play on the slip and slide. Jacob and Nathan came over to partake. They were having fun till we heard Jacob say look out for the dog poop. Well we don't have a dog. Chris went out to investigate, the next thing I hear Taylor getting in trouble. She comes crying in followed by Chris trying so hard not to laugh. Now with all the poop stories I written you assume it was Quinten involved right? Wrong. Taylor took a crap right in the middle of the backyard. She even wiped. Chris of course was gagging too much so I had to pick up the poop and toilet paper. If she had to come in for the toilet paper why didn't she just go inside. The things that go through a kids head.
This is what we, plus both sets of Grandparents, got the kids for their Birthdays. I know their birthdays aren't till Sept and Oct but now is the time they can play with it. No riding has happened yet but tomorrow is the day. They still had fun playing on it and so did Chris and I. Yes the last picture Chris got a little stuck and of course my purse had to make an appearance.

You may be asking yourself right now why is she telling us this. We all do things our own way and I don't want anyone to feel singled out for doing something differently. That was not the intention of my last post about grass.
P.S. I'm still having fun using the reel mower and getting a little added exercise.

Day 3 of potty training went well. Quinten was dry the last 2 nights hopefully tonight it continues.
Wednesday, June 11, 2008
I hope wherever you are that you are having a great day, whatever kind of weather.
I just thought a really big bonus for this weather. Quinte has been forced to stay inside so we are trying to potty train him. He was dry all night last night and so far all day too. Except for poops. At least it's not on the floor. Sorry no poop stories.
Thursday, June 05, 2008
I mowed today and because of all the rain I think it might have been longer than last weeks mowing. We cannot let it get that long again. It's going to have to be a twice a week job. I knew that our yard was bigger than our last house but seriously, it felt like I was mowing forever. I might be exaggerating a bit.
Now back to the packing.

A question for today: How is it that 2 little kids can make such a mess in just a couple of hours? Argh!
Sunday, June 01, 2008
Speaking of babies I forgot to mention in my previous posts about our friends that lost their twins, but were pregnant again. They had a healthy baby boy a couple of weeks. I know they'll make great parents. Continue to keep them in your prayers. Thanks!
Now that I have 5 weeks till I do it, I'll say that I am doing the Stampede half marathon. I'm a little nervous about it that I won't be quite ready, but then other days I think I will be. It should be interesting. I'm really enjoying running. Chris will be doing it with me, and he hates running but wants to support me. What a great husband. I don't take him for granted.
Well that's all for now. Happy Monday to all!
