{Girls Being Girly}

"Christy...can you come up here for a minute? And grab the camera?"
And this is what I walked into......
I. LOVE. My. Girls.

:: A Quick Trip ::

Trevor was gone working for his mom and I thought it would be fun to make a trip over to check out the show, visit Trev and surprise Grammie and Auntie.
We managed to pull of a great surprise and although it was a very early morning and a very long day, it was so worth it and I had such a great day shopping with Auntie Megan.
We were at the show for four hours and Denay spent the whole time at the booth, mostly eating pudding and "helping" daddy stock the freezer.
I worked four shows last year and being there definitely made me wish I could have been able to work this year. Some of the ideas and products that people were showing just blew my mind.....and my tummy :)

A Shower For Paisley

A few weeks ago, three very special friends of mine threw a lovely shower for Paisley and I. We played some super fun games (sculpting babies from play-doh was my favourite), Paisley got a gorgeous diaper cake, lovingly made by my dear Kerry and the girls got me a gift certificate for a 45 minute massage (booked for Tuesday and I can't WAIT).
Paisley was snuggled many times over.....

And we snacked on the always oh-so-yummy Cake By Alana.
Thank you SO much Kerry, Natalie and Megan for the perfect shower and for blessing Paisley and I, and to all the ladies who came loved on us!

It's Ma Birfday!

Early in the month, we met my parents and a group of our friends at a restuarant to eat....cause it was my birthday. We had a great time laughing and chowing down on ice cream cake.....

Yeah, this would be Denay licking her ice cream plate clean. I swear I have no idea where she gets that from!
Thanks hubby, friends and family for loving me!


These pictures are from way back in the middle of November and were taken by my sister-in-law of the kids on a cool sunny afternoon.
Love this one!

It's amazing the bond that these three have, considering how little they are able to see each other.
It's so wonderful!

:: Staff Party 2010 ::

NOTE: My catching-up post are going to come very unorganized and scattered....bear with me :)
The first weekend of December, Trev and I kissed our princesses goodbye and headed up to Parksville for his yearly, all-island-stores staff party at the Tigh-Na-Mara.
Since we arrived with a few hours to spare before heading to dinner, we decided to take a dip in their renown mineral pool that is apparently supposed to detoxify your body. We stayed for a good hour, switching between the pool and hot tub until we were well cooked. I enjoyed a super hot and quiet shower under a rainfall shower head and we still had time to relax in our room before getting ready.
The party, was a PARTY. After a great dinner, they moved onto some presentations and prize draws (that I missed because I was in the room pumping.....oh, the joys) and then onto dancing. We managed to make off with a bread maker (which is, as I type, mixing dough for homemade cinnamon buns for Christmas morning)
And did we DANCE.

Pretty sure we partied like it was 1999.....or 1989.....who cares, it was fun.
Thanks for the great time #29!
It's either feast or famine around here.
I am here.....and I know at least one person misses me (thanks Michelle!).
Ahhh, December.
But I'm going to catch up.

A Look Back.....

I was burning a CD of photos from my mother-in-law's computer on the weekend and came across this shot from the 25th of October.....me at 39 weeks pregnant, a week and a day before I had Paisley.....
How time flies.
