Here's To You....

I took Lil' Sis out for drinks to celebrate her graduating! Here's to finishing half a year early...

And we are back home. Had a great trip. So nice to miss the arctic weather that was happening here. I think that was the high point of the trip. Here is our vacation in a nutshell!

A few things I learnt while I was away.
-Garrett can relax WAY better than I can...this has NEVER happened before.
-I am a nervous flyer...thought the plane was gonna go down
-I missed my kids more than they missed me

I'm wishing it was -30 right now as Garrett and I leave for Mexico on Saturday for a week and it would make leaving better. I always seem to get cold feet when I am about to leave my kidlets which amazes me because I usually am wanting nothing more then a break. Thinking of what others are going through is making it hard for me to leave my girls. Just would like to be with my family right now too.

I leave on Thursday to take them to Cold Lake to stay with Grandma and Grandpa while we are gone. It helps that they are excited! They will be away from home for 10 nights. Zara has had her bag packed for a week. In her bag is all these random papers with things for Grandma and Grandpa, stickers, sunglasses, books, sweat pants, one shirt and her pillow and blanket. That's all she needs for a good holiday!

It is coming up to our 5th anniversary and the day we get back is my birthday so I guess it is a pretty good gift for those occasions! Here is what I'll be missing when I am gone....

Crayon Art

I downloaded the Pinterest app on my phone the other day (yes Molly, I caved) and it is true, its highly addicting and wastes A LOT of time but I can't get enough. After browsing for quite a while, I came across a picture a lady made with crayons. I have been looking for some art to hang down in the girls playroom so I thought it might work. I went to Wal-Mart and bought 3 canvas and a 96 pack of crayons. Yes a 96 pack, they are all different colors and amazing! I also used another pack of crayons I had laying around the house. Hope the girls don't mind that the crayons are now on the wall! Here is what I did...

Thank you Pinterest.

Zara tried to convince me to let her wear her headband today...this was her argument. 'Mom, if you let me wear it I promise to not get hyper.' Needless to say it went up in a pony. But if only that would cure hyperness.

Doesn't look like much is going to help Kanya's hair! Plus can actually tell she has hair. Static helps cure the mullet look!

Year in review

It has been a is what you missed.
Had a great summer. Went to Salmon Arm convention and went to the lake for a week.
Attempted some family pictures in the are a couple. Zara is always a treat to take pictures of.

Kanya was in the hospital for a few nights with pneumonia. Not fun.

Did a couple projects for my the coffee tables and made 2 matching lamps.

We had a great holiday season and now its 2012. Crazy. And your all caught up. Maybe 2012 is the year for me and my blog to get better acquainted.
