photo extravaganzzzzzzza!

Well, we’ve had a busy past couple of weeks at our casa.  First off, Joshijah went for his very first dentist appointment.  Very exciting?  Oh yes.  He wasn’t at all nervous.  Relaxed as anything.  Just look at his very relaxed posture in the super cool dentist chair.  😉


Thankfully the hygienist and the dentist were both so nice and let him pick out the COOLEST shades to wear!  This relaxed him somewhat. 

This was Jos trying to spit into the little sink.  He can’t figure it out still.  He just makes the noise of spitting, and lets the spit just head down the ol’ throat.  Ah well, all in good time.


The dentist.  Again, Joshijah looking very relaxed.  Clutching that chair for dear life!
However, it was a very successful trip.  Joshijah was a big boy and did really well!  YAY! 


With Uncle Cubby and Tante Jes reading stories at my Mom and Dad’s place.  It was my Dad’s birthday. 


Hosanna snuggling up with Poppi on his b-day. 

This was Joshijah’s birthday party.  Jos and Sammi.


Hosanna (or as I like to call her:  May-may-licious.)










Opening up the prezzies.

Yummy treats.  And that’s my friend Julie.  Everyone say, “Hey Julie!”


Markers and Stickers and Play-Dough, oh my!

Cupcakes a la Lightning McQueen.


Traditional birthday breakfast in bed. 

Joshijah with his bed-head. 

Cake!!  This time for the “family birthday party”.


“Uh, Mama?!  What is this?  You call this cake?! And ya’ll can show me some better singing than that.  C’mon.”

Jer and Steve shooting the breeze waiting for food. 


Tom being quiet and contemplative and playing a sweet tune on J-dog’s guit. 

My dad.  I love this picture of him. 

My mom!  All the girls were being Italian mamas in the kitchen making homemade pizza.  Well, Jes was laying on the floor.  It’s ok.  She’s pregnant.  She’s allowed to lay on the floor. 

My sister Sara with her sweet baby girl. 

Joshijah with his cool new airplane from Plan Toys.  Very cool toys.  They are my new favourites.  The kids love them too.  (that’s pretty important I guess)   
And he is wearing the beautiful sweater that my mom made for him.  He looks like a little euro-kid.  I love it!  Notice Jes is still on the floor.  Having a great time, might I add. 

Janna and I being pretty serious about making the pizza.     We had some pretty loud music on to help out the mood.  Sara and Amelie are dancing, I’m sure.   Janna’s gonna love that pic of her.  🙂

This is my Aunt Marion.  She stopped by yesterday to give Jos his b-day present.

Jos and May-May doing their thang with the new easel from Nana and Papa!
(Notice the large amount of snow hanging off the tree outside.  It just.keeps.coming.)





And this is me, taking my before shot.  I am getting my hair cut tomorrow. 
Tomorrow I will post the after shot.  Stay tuned!

G’night ya’ll!!


i’m a lucky gal. yep.

well, today is friday, and one of the ever-so-cool and special and fun and lovely things about this day of the week is that my amazing and wonderful husband buys me a “friday gift”.  i know, right?  how great is that? 

its totally great!

not because i need things, but seriously, to be thought of every week in a special way…i LOVE it love it.

this week i got a very hip new mug.  (for those of you that know me, i drink coffee. a lot. and good mugs are VERY important.  very important.  heh.)

last week jer made me….yep, made me a framed piece of art work.  he’s great like that. 
other “friday gifts” of late have been:

*this book.  a very good read.  i can pore over it for hours.  eeenteresteeng stuff.

*very pretty smelly girlie soap

*wild mint lime hand and body lotion.  made with all natural ingredients.  and containing NO PARABENS!! (which is important.  parabens are used as a preservative, and they disrupt the hormones.  if you read up on them, you’ll see they’re nasty, and they are in SO.MANY.THINGS.  however, more and more products are going paraben-free.) 

* oh and lingerie.  *wink*

well, i think that’s just so nice of my sweet man.  he’s a keeper.  i loaf him.

have any of you checked out this magazine?  jer’s mom just bought us a subscription when we told her about it (thanks mom little!) and its really rad and full of good arty fun.

well, tomorrow is sweet saturday.  we are breaking the cinnamon roll tradition (*gasp*) and are instead having fresh baked croissants.  (ohh!)
then we are going to church.  we are having a worship time which is going to be followed by a 24-hour prayer time.  we have each signed up for different hours to pray at the church.  it should be good.  prayer is good.  God is good.  He really is. 

well, have a good one!
