Soon to be BLISS...

Today we leave for Cold Lake and when we return we shall be childless! Can I say that I pretty excited. My dear Mother-in-law is taking my girls for 4 days. They will return Thursday evening. As the time is nearing I'm getting a little nervous...I mean Kanya is only 13 months but she isn't that attached to me so I think she'll be fine...if fact when she gets hurt she would rather go to my mom and she cried Wednesday night when I had to take her from Darren's arms so really she should be good! Here are some things I'd like to do while I have all the time in the world.
-paint the railings
-go for a massage
-go out for supper with Garrett
-get some shopping done
-paint the last couple walls that need touch-ups
-sew sew sew
We shall see how it goes.

Here is a recent picture of the Pearman kiddos...

Zara's Funnies

Here are some of the things that Zara has said lately...

-I was trying to get her to put on a little sweater dress to go to supper last night and she told me 'My belly is too fat to wear that dress'
-While driving a while ago she informed me that 'My bum is too big for this carseat I need to get another one'
Apparently we are starting with the girls issues already...

-She was reading Aunty Shelby a Clifford book and this is how it went...'that and that and that and all the puppies and Hifford (Clifford) and then (turn the page) that and that and ALL the houses and that and Hifford and then (turn the page) etc etc. (no real plot at all)
-I tried to get her to read the 'Hifford' book to Garrett and she told me 'When I am bad then I will read the Hifford book to Dad'

-When she gets to the end of the ABC song she sings 'Now I know my acbdefghi...' and starts singing the song all over it becomes that annoying song that NEVER ends

-The other morning she came to me and told me that her teeth were sore so she had put Kanya's bum cream in her mouth to help the sore teeth I guess.

Back in order

Our carpet and bathroom flooring has been installed and I love it. I'm not sure why we waited so long here are a few pictures...
The family room

The main bathroom

Our bedroom

And a before and after of the we just have to finish painting the railing.

Zara has been dressing herself every morning lately and then changing outfits 30 times a are a few of her creations.

And poor Kanya-belle hasn't been feeling well these days...she has a bit of a cold that hopefully is clearing up now. Here she is...

And that has been this week in a nutshell...

More randomness but with pictures this time...

Last weekend it was Islay's 3rd birthday so we celebrated with a Cat in the Hat cake and fun decor. This is the gift I made for her...

A skirt made from jeans and a memory game. I have other pictures of gifts I've made on another camera card but my dear daughter (the older one not even the baby) chewed it and now I can't get the pictures off the card.
Here is the birthday girl...

And her guests...

On Sunday I tried to get a picture of my girls mainly because it's the only day that I get to dress Zara and they actually look nice. Here is the best shot...

Kanya helping Dad play the piano...

Zara just about to fall back on the chair.

Zara is a such a good little mother lately...she goes everywhere with her baby. Her baby can be a number of things...sometimes its a puppy or Winnie-the-Pooh or sometimes it is just pretend and is air. Yesterday it was her pillow. She even put a diaper on it and did a mighty fine job too.

And lastly...half of our carpet is getting put in tomorrow and the rest on Monday so its a week earlier than we were expecting so we have been CRAZY busy painting and fixing all the things we have been putting off for 2 years. Here are some of the painting we've been doing...
Our bedroom. Huge change from brown but I think I like a bit of brightness.

The wall in the kitchen.

The main bathroom and laundry.

Hopefully I'll get pictures up when the carpet and flooring is in and everything is put back together.
