Whew! The holidays are over!

Wow! What a couple of weeks it has been. Christmas concerts, birthdays, Christmas and New Years coming. I am exhuasted with all the excitement that has been going on in our lives.
Austin's birthday was fabulous with a household full of friends, family and food. He got spoiled wrotten as usual and loved it. On his actual birthday we almost couldn't get him to sleep because he was so excited he was going to be 5 finally! That night I was in the middle of cooking his bday cake when my oven blew up. 2 days before Christmas!! I might also mention, Christmas was being held at our house! The birthday was saved though, I had a banana cake in the freezer so we put candles on it and had that.
Our oven did not get fixed in time for Christmas and the part is so stinkin expensive it's crazy! This week hopefully they can get it in and we can cook normally again. Dear friends of ours went to Saskatchewan for Christmas and let us use their oven for cooking our turkey. Thank you Justin and Anna for saving our holiday feast!!
Christmas day was perfect! Hailee got up at 3am and waited til 5:30 to come upstairs. I was awake so we waited til 6 to wake up Dad and Austin. Hailee got a beautiful doll house and Austin got a train table so they were pretty pumped. The family was great, the food was better and by 6pm I was ready for bed.
I of course got spoiled as well with a tripod for my camera, jammas, scrap stuff, a hand knit sweater, a purse, jewellery, perfume and so much more.
I was supposed to babysit for New Year's eve but got cancelled on, so now Brian, the kids and I are going to stay home, order in and play the wii. New Year's day we are going to go to Mom and Dad's for Chinese food. I hope everyone else is having as great a holiday as me!

Pictures on my kids!

Here are a couple pics to tide you over. Austin and Hailee had a country themed Christmas concert this year so they got all dolled up cowboy style. Aren't they cute?!
The other one is of Austin in front of his super cool Lightning McQueen birthday cake Lisa made him. Thanks Lisa! You are a total doll! I will try and get some more on here later.

Hello friends!

I have missed you all so! Things have been awful around here lately and I just haven't had the time to post. I have taken on a 3rd job, yes I said 3rd, joined and quit Jenny Craig because it made me sick and started smoking again. It has been a year and a half and I broke. Not to worry though, I am gonna jump right back on the wagon as soon as I get through the rush of Christmas. The road to hell is paved with bad decisions isn't it?
All the Christmas shopping is done and the house is decorated. Groceries are bought and Austins birthday has been celebrated. I am looking so forward to the Christmas break and thank goodness it is here as of tomorrow. We have all even been sick already so hopefully Christmas is safe.
Things are moving right along as far as the store and new DT go and I can't wait to have my first month end meeting with the girls. I am very excited to see all of their new work. I have been scrapbooking up a storm at home, finishing of gifts, making calendars and working on stuff for the store.
I hope you are all fine and well. I will try and get some photos uploaded on here tomorrow with pics of the kids and what I've been working on. Talk to you all real soon!
Big Hugs!
