Sick sick sick

Jimmy comes down stairs last night to tell me he's sick in his stomach. I tucked him back in and he said he was fine. 10 minutes later he comes down covered in vomit! His bed, floor, clothes! After I cleaned him up, then the yucky puke upstairs, we camped out in the living room. The poor thing was sick half through the night. Thank god hes ok now

Good Bye Friend

I rescued you only a couple years ago and nursed you back to life. You turned into a puppy all over again and was a wonderful companion. You will be so greatly missed Blaise, I love you!

This deserved a post in its own.
My mom bought Jimmy a Nintendo Wii. I told her that Jimmy would be writing to her next year instead of Santa! lol
So everyone played this thing! And Jimmy woke up this morning with a arm and shoulder ache from boxing for hours. I cant wait to play tennis!! Yay

First she made sure he really loved her

By now I was really loving her for the Wii too!

Oh there it is! Its really here, finally
We now have a TV in our diningroom, and even moved the table out of the way.
We had to let him play first since it was his.... aahhhh [rolling eyes]

Then we all took turns. This thing rocked. We bowled, played baseball, tennis. golfed and boxed. House guests came and went for the rest of the night and we even had them playing it.
Go Mom, you rock...lala Go Mom (Jim and I danced while singing that song BTW)

Enjoying the Christmas decor.

Christmas Memory of the Day

This memory came to my husband and I the other night when we were sitting at the table discussing our 'picture nightmare'
Me: Do you remember when you would go to see Santa and get a candy cane and buy a $5 Polaroid. Not a digital $30 printed out package! Activity books, coloring books, a bag of animal crackers, and a envelope filled with coupons to use while at the mall! Just a candy cane, THATS IT!
Jim: I remember going to see Santa and getting the picture for free!

My babies!

Christmas Memory of the Day

I remember when I was a little girl we would get these calendars from Shop N Save every December. It was a Santa face and for everyday of the month you glued on a cotton ball. By Christmas morning Santas beard was filled in with white fluffy cotton balls. They dont have them anymore so I draw my own for Jimmy.

Sunday family fun day!

My mom took our family to see Walking with the Dinosaurs Live yesterday at Mellon Arena. Jimmy was in heaven! He slept in his T-Rex shirt and drew many many pictures! My pictures came out dark bc we werent allowed to use the flash.

Then we went Hartwood Acres. I really enjoyed that.
