Happy Thanksgiving!

Today we decided to make Turkey cupcakes in honor of Thanksgiving and it was so much fun! Sarah did the feathers, Max made the noses and I finished off the blue eyes. Thank you to my friend Natalie Crowe who posted this awesome idea on her facebook page!!

This past year I have so much more to be thankful for. I am thankful for happy, healthy children and for the most amazing husband a girl could ever ask for. I am thankful for friends who make me laugh and are there for a shoulder to cry on. I am also thankful that I can return the favor too!
I am thankful for having a great family. My parents are healthy and my brother and sister in law are about to welcome a new addition to our family and for this I am thankful.
I am especially thankful that I get to stay home and raise my children without the stresses of daycare or working. I am so blessed to be able to pick them up from school everyday.

Have a great Thanksgiving friends and don't eat too much Turkey!!

Gobble, gobble....

Happy Mothers Day!!

First of all, Happy Mothers Day to Me!!! These two gorgeous kids are my reason for living and two of my favorite little people in the world!! I look at the two of them everyday and I am so greatful for the joy they bring to my life. I look at Sarah and stare in amazement at how beautiful she is, and how smart she is. I look at her everday and think about how lucky I am to be her Mommy. I look at my Maxi and I see his Daddy. When he greets everyday with a smile and a song, it warms my heart to know that those who meet him, never forget him...he is so infectious!!

Thank you my loving husband and amazing father, Quentin for giving me these two beautiful babies.

My Mother in law, Audrey. I can't say enough of how lucky I am to have such an amazing woman in my life. She has always cared for me like her own daughter and she is always there when I need her. I love you Audrey.

Most important is my Mom. Without her I wouldn't be here today and I wouldn't be the person I am today. Her guidance, her love, and her strength are a constant reminder to me of how amazing she is!! I love you Mom.

Last but not least, to my friends that are Mothers.....

I have learned so much from each and every one of you. You have taught me patience at times when I didn't think it was have taught me how to laugh and enjoy the little things in life, when life was getting the best of have taught me how to be a more loving and honest mother and friend and I thank you all for that. You know who you are!!!

Happy Mothers Day!!

Weekend Wedding

This past weekend we attended a wedding for our friends Jeff and Tanis. My husband did an amazing job being the MC and my kids showed off some pretty good moves on the dance floor.

It was a great day, Congrats Jeff and Tanis.

Monkey boys!

Max's buddy Luca came over to hang out with us for the day and I couldn't resist taking these pictures of the boys in their matching jackets.

Couple of hams........aren't they so darn cute!

Card exchange

I participated in a card exchange with 4 other ladies. We had to make 25 cards with a different theme . Mine was girl birthday and here is a pic of what I came up with.

Come on Down!!!

I almost forgot to post this hilarious pic of Leslie and I. We went to the Price is Right show while we were in Vegas and it was definitely good for a few laughs. Neither of us got called to "come on down" but it was still fun.

Field Trip

Here are a few pics of Max's fieldtrip to the Muttart Conservatory.

Vegas Baby!!

I guess I have some catching up to do. This happens to me all the time!! My Vegas trip with Leslie was soooooooo much fun. We both came back very relaxed and refreshed and I would go again with her in a heartbeat!
She was such a trooper the whole time because she had injured her knee prior to the trip and her whole leg kept swelling up the entire trip and she never complained. ( I would have)
We had some interesting cab rides (thought we were gonna die once), saw the new Elvis Cirque show(which was amazing), shopped, drank,went to the Price is Right show, laughed, walked for miles, giggled, ate really well and just really enjoyed eachothers company.
We stayed at the newest hotel on the strip called ARIA and it was beautiful, except the last night when our blackout curtain wouldn't close and we had to sleep with the window open all night!

Our Amazing room at ARIA!

We were so proud of the leg room on one of our flights!!
