My Guys

It is not the best photo around but I think it is cute, the guys in my life sharing a drink made from the juicer. We just bought the juicer and I am so happy to see the my boys are now getting the veggies they need weather they know it or not, they seem to be enjoying it....why did we not think of his sooner.

I was in there to having a sip when the thought of "oh this is a shot" so I sacrificed my part of the juice for a photo.....


I just looked at my blog and photos on our other computer (one that is not calibrated) and wow the difference my blog and photos look blue and dark on the uncalibrated one...I advise you to calibrate your computers...... I hate to think of what you are all missing..


Was good. Grandma and Grandpa stayed over, when the boys woke in the morning Lil O did not miss a beat he new just what to do....headed to the biggest He was having fun ripping open his gifts while Ri could of cared less once he open the 1st toy he was done and wanted to play.

Xmas O

Xmas RI


Hope you all had a Merry Christmas too

Star light

While I was taking the shots I saw my son run to get his V-Tech camera and started to take photos too. In the corner of my eye I saw he was watching what I was doing the he took off again grabbed his box flipped it over and then placed his camera on it...his tripod I he is thinking.

O taking photos

I went to get the photos off his camera (I know they were there because I saw what he took) Low and behold they were gone vanished somehow and this is upsetting me because he got so good shots and now they are gone...grrrr

Lil O's Way of thinking on Chrsitmas....

Every time he see a toy that he'd like to have at the store or on TV he says "Christmas gonna give it for me" I say maybe I don't know..... When he looks at the gifts under the tree he asks "Have to wait till Christmas" when I say yes his response is "Oh okay wait till Christmas ..ok"

I will have to try and record him saying these for keepsakes.

Here is the 1st casualty of Christmas 2008, my youngest broke his 1st year ornament. The bottom where you see 2007 a glass bubble was around it filled with water and sparkles .... no longer sparkly... I was able to save it and got all of the glass removed from it. Other then that they have not bothered the Tree to much

X-mas tree

I set up the tree while the boys were napping (I need to do it in peace) I got the tree and the lights up just before Lil O woke. He came down and saw the lights and was in awe and said Oh momma look at the lights" I said yes this is the Christmas tree he responded "oh ... good job momma" nice to no I had his

Ri woke and at 1st he was a little hesitant of the tree would not get to close but yet was excited to see it, about 20min in he finally poked it.

(video will come soon)

Finally went and got Ri's needles done his 1yr and 18months. The reason I was late on the check up was for 2 reasons:
1 ~ The clinic was closed for reno's and the I forgot to call back.
2 ~ Just felt very nervous for Ri to have his done (but he is doing well)

All went well at the clinic.
Ri's Info:

Lenght ~ 83 centimeter = 32.677 165 354 inch
Weight ~ 10.13 kilogram = 22.332 827 159 lb, lbs

he is in the 5% for weight and just below 50% for length.

Ri handles the needles well but started to cry on the 3rd one (4 total) then Lil O was starting to get upset because his lil brother was, so the nurse gave them both stickers.

Then is was time for mommy and Lil O to get the flu shot, he did not know what was coming as we went back to the waiting area till another nurse called on us. She asked if we should do Lil O's 1st I said no lets show him that mommy gets a needle too and does not cry so he knows that it does not hurt to bad. He watched me and it is a good thing that needles do not bother me because he was just waiting fo me to react. Then his turn came when I asked him to come sit on moms lap he looked at me and grabed his arm and said "no" I then said it is ok mommy got her needle now it is your turn, this is to help us not get sick ok... he thought about it then repeated what I said and I said yes that is right he then came and dat on my lap and the nurse gave him the needle he cried a little at the end because that is when you feel it.
We went back to the waiting area had to stay for 15min (just incase we had a reaction) and all was forgotton. Once home Lil O kept on repeating "were not gonna get sick right momma?"

Well 26yrs ago today could of been the last day of my life...but someone, something was watching out for me or it just was not my time yet and I survived.

You see 26yrs ago today as I walked home from school (I was almost 10yrs old) I was walking and holding my sister J's school bag as she walked ahead of me carving something in a snowball she had in her hand. When I came to the road to cross (this was/is a four lane busy road) and this is where I do not remember too much other then waking up under a car with the tire right at my face and I still had the bag in my hand. I remember crying out and seeing feet all around me then I was out again, woke again in the ambulance the EMT asking me questions but I passed out again and woke in the hospital.

Apparently my sis started beating the guy that alsmost ran over me, he was 19yrs old.

Back to as I was crossing the road... I guess one car was already stopped and the driver was waving me to walk and then would sign to stop and then waved for me to walk again and I guess when I passed his car that is where the other car tried to stopped but slid on the ice and ran into me tossed me into the air and my sis says I flew about 15feet and landed on the car (broke the windsheild and dented the bumper) and roll down the hood and under the car as he was still sliding and stopped just at my head...that is why I saw a tire right at my face as I woke.

To this day I still remember seeing a row of lights and it was dark but I could not go to them, I never mentioned that to anyone till I was older when I would hear of people with near death experiences that they'd see a light....I often wonder is that what I saw...

Well I was able to walk out of the Hospital the next day with only brusies all over my body and bandages on my legs my snowsuit was tossed because they had to cut me out of it and that is what they say saved my life ... a that I did not want to wear that day but my mum made me wear it. My main concern was for my chipmunk record that was in the was shattered, I did getting a new one... :)

that's my boy, wiggle it just a little bit......

Can not connect

Apparently some people (including me) can not connect to either Yahoo or Flickr. Hopefully things get fixed soon and all will be back to normal.


Today I went to the dentist and as I was sitting in the chair I had this thought run through my head of I wonder if the hygienist/dentist have ever had anyone spit/cough on them while the mouth was full (should of took that as a warning). Well a little more then half way thru guess what happens...yup...I did what I embarrassing....I starting to choke and then cough and yes my mought was full and it went everywhere some on me and some on here. I was like OMG so so sorry that has never happened and her response never happend to me And to help matters I started to gag on the fluoride treatment, geesh what was wrong with me today. She will remember me from now on.

Yum Yum Mama

Yummy in the tummy......mmm mmm pancakes good mama...yum

That is what my son says when I make his favorite breakfast.

Where's Ballerina

Went to Costco the other day with my friend C and as we were walking around Lil O kept asking "where's Ballerina?" I was like Ballerina who? I do not see any Ballerina's, then I starting to think how does he know about Ballerina's? hmmm. Then it clicked as my friend C walked away again and Lil O asked once again "Where is Ballerina going?" Ah C is Ballerina (Ballerina rhymes with C's name) When C came back I mentioned to her that she is now Ballerina...we had a good chuckle from it.

Ok try again......

We went grocery shopping today and as usual Lil O said hi to EVERYONE and then you'd hear a little echo of Ri saying hi too. When people said hi back that is when Lil O would announce that he had a race car then hold it up to show them. Well at on point I stopped in the Isle to look for something and a lady was reading one of the items (she had it in her hands)a few feet away. Lil O said Hi then waited a moment when he did not get a response back he said "Hi" again only a bit louder, he repeated this a couple of more times then he stopped...then I heard him say "Ok lets try this again, HI" I started to laugh and that is when the lady turned and looked at me and then at Lil O and said Hi back.

98% of the time people do say hi back. He also saw some kids and said to them "Hi boy, HI" At one point a lady stopped to say hi and she said that she had a couple of twin granddaughters his age, she looked at O and said would you like a

I'm a Big boy & I'm STRONG

Well lil O finally made the transition to a big boy bed. I have had a toddler bed in the basement for a few months now and every time I wanted to set it up dh would be like "why, he is not complaining about it, he does not try to get out. Just because other kids are in one does not mean he needs to be....and so on...... I do not think daddy was
Me I was all excited to show him the big boy bed. I held off as long as I could but I feel it is/was the time for a few reasons:

#1 he is 3yrs old
#2 he goes to bed without any issues(so I had a feeling he would not be a problem)
#3 can not hold him back.

So I set up his toddler bed before his nap time. Lil O was helping and then asked why I was taking it down (because I put it together wrong for the bed rails) when done he crawled right into his new bed laid down and pulled the covers up then looked up at me and said "this is my bed". I asked if he wanted to take his nap in his new big boy bed he nodded his head. When I went to close the door he asked for me to leave his light on (why I do not know, so I did. turned it off when he fell asleep)
When it was time for bedtime I asked Lil O what bed he was going to sleep in and he pointed to the crib saying his name and that he'd sleep in there, then he pointed to the toddler bed and said it that for baby.. I said no that is a big boy bed for a big boy and then pointed to the crib and said that was for a baby boy. I asked him if he was a big boy he said yes then I asked why does a big boy want to sleep in a baby's bed. He thought for a moment then said no I am a big boy, I sleep in big boy bed. That was it he crawled in and cuddled with he's froggy, baby, bear and Mr Monkey. I turned the lights out and he stayed in bed as fell asleep he woke calling for me at 7:30am.... I am so proud he did not fall In the morning I asked if he had a good sleep he said "yup" I then asked if he liked his big boy bed "yup, I am a big boy and I am strong" (flexing his muscles as he said this) My response Yes you are little man yes you are.

RIP Unlce Jack

My aunt the one I mentioned below lost her life partner, husband, friend today. They only been married 3days. I am so sorry Auntie Marg

He passed at 6am this morning. Rest in Peace Jack Rest in Peace.

Wednesday, November 05, 2008


Today my mum called and told me that my Auntie M is getting married today (which is great). My aunt has been with J for about 20yrs, life was good for them... A little over a month ago J was taken to the hospital and they discovered his cancer was back and in the stomach. J was/is not doing to great so on one visit he announced to my mum he was going to marry her sister.

J was sent home and he lasted a week at home before ending up back in the hospital and has been there since. It almost seemed like the marriage was not going to take place because M was with J most of the time so others set things in motion for them to get married (one of J's sons and a neighbor friend) J was moved to a hospice the other day and today is the day they decided to say "I Do"

This is why it is bittersweet, they love each other, and for J he wants to make sure my Aunt M is taken care of after he is gone.

Trick or Treat.........We survived Halloween...

Took the boys to the Mall's Marvelous Maskoween Party today, 1st time Halloweeners and they did really well. Lil O was not scared he kept yelling out Oh mamma look at the monsters {pause} Hi monsters HI as he is waving like

We then watched a magic show (which I think went on a bit to long for the kids about 45mins) the kids all had a blast. The guy was good but by the time he was done they were all ready to take off.

Then we went and made a mask (mommy tried not to help to much) he did well.

He would not wear the mask at 1st then I tried it out and M took a photo (photo will come later) and then Ri tried it (that too will come later) and then Lil O wanted to give it a shot:
Could not get him to take it off after

Here he is leaving with dad to go Trick or Treating for the very 1st time

When they came back Dh said that he did say the Trick or Treat part and when he got the treats he'd look a dh and say "Ok lets go to the next house" He also wanted to go into the neighbors house next door she did let him in and when he said TorT to her she said of for the here you go and dumped a hand full into his bag. Geesh he is all ready working


It was a really nice day for Halloween today since we had a blizzard this time last year. Thought we would of had more kids at the door but again maybe 20 or 30 came....maybe the just do not like to come into the Cul-de-sac.

Nothing like saving our youngest by the seat of his pants..

literally I did.

We went to a kids play area and Ri was playing of one of the climbing things and jumping up saying boo to all. Another mom started to play all with him and he got all excited that he went on his hands an knees to peek out of one of the holes but since he is still a little top heavy he started to fall out the hole head 1st. I was on the other side of the slide so I reached over the slide and grabed a hold of his pants by the waist just before his head hit the ground (it is matted the ground) and he was kind of hanging till and could lay him down. When I looked up breifly I saw all the other moms looking at me with there mouths open and a few said OMG. I knelt and pick up Ri and hugged him till his scare left him..... Just call me Momma Ninja

A Skunk and an Elephant.....

I went to the mall the other day to meet up with my sisters friend to get books 2 & 3 of the Twilight series, when we parted ways I went and signed the boys up to play in the Let's Play area and we had to wait an hour. I walked around and ended up in Old Navy where they had some kids costumes on sale $20.00 not much choice for boys but they had a couple that I hummed and hawed over. There was a Skunk and a Bat in Lil O's size but when he got a good look at the bat he did a weird shiver squishy face thing and said " oh oh that scary" I looked at it again and thought um yeah it is a little scary, it had pointy ears buck teeth with the tongue hanging out and evil looking eyes and the flapping wings so I passed on it and tried the skunk on Lil O and oh the comments that people made when the walked by him he'd shake his tale smile up at them and announce he was a skunk. For Ri well there was an elephant and it was to cute on him to pass up. I took them to the mirror so they could see themselves and the giggles and shakes they were doing and people laughing at them as they walked by. Do you think I could get it off Lil O when I went to buy it Nope I had to rip the tage off so the girl could scan it

I took these with my new point and shoot camera (I wanted a pocket camera for those days I did and do not want to carry around my dSLR)

After daddy was done washing it I came in with the band aid...he looked at me like that is going where?? When I was done getting it on lil O announced "All better mama, thank you"

Not good news when the Dr calls

Dr S called just now (fertility clinic) and informed me that my last FSH # jumped to 34 then went on to say the it most likely that I may not get pg again and to even have a good outcome if I do. If by miracle I do get pg I am to call her asap...


She said that she see this a lot in women that have Uterine Anomalies and that she was sorry.... my only response was "Yeah for infertility"... Photobucket

I feel empty and that my body has yet again betrayed me. So now I am sitting here with tears falling down my cheeks.

Well I am very very grateful for my 2 boys.
