Dave and I decided to go for a walk in the snow last night. I put Ella in my coat with me, she was snug as a bug! We were feeling the Christmas spirit so we started to sing Ella Christmas songs while we walked. It was a really nice family walk!

****MINE*****MINE *****NOT MINE!

Chapter 1....

Well I was sitting here on the computer and I saw a truck backing into our complex. I thought I was dreaming because it was a " SLEEP COUNTRY" truck. It was getting closer, I then started to have visions of this king bed with gorgous pillows that covered the whole top of the bed. My head laying down ,oh ...it was so soft! I would dream of clouds and butterfly's dancing around my head. A sunset beaming into my room and covering my king bed with a beautiful glow......Aaa..... then I looked out the window, the men climbing out of their seats and walking to the back of the trunk to retreave this massive bed......right into my nieghbours house! Ouch......it stings a little just talking about it! THE END

Chapter 2....

David and I have know agreed that this time next year were going to walk into the Brick boxing day sale and get us our first ever NEW BED SET.... We have one year to save, save, save.....Next year it will be the other neighbours looking at us and OUR moving men. It will be a great day!!!!

I can't believe it!

Well I had to show you guys this picture because it made me laugh out loud when I saw what Dave was trying to do. Ella the cleaning machine at an early age of 8 months. I love her face it's like she just got caught doing Daddy's job....so cute!

Swimming friends....

Sean, JD and Alaina...and Ella too!

Well Ella finished her first ever swimming lesson's. Her report card said she was a really good kicker and a very happy girl in the water. On Wednesday I had some of the mom's that could make it, come over for lunch after the last class. I have always wanted to get together with other local mom's and have the baby's play while we chat about more baby stuff. We had so much fun we talked till 12:30 to almost about 4pm. It was a good time and there will be more because we start again January 7th.

Big girl know.....

This is the way I can see that Ella is growing. Each time I put her in the laundry basket to bring the clothes upstairs. She thinks it's really funny!

8 Months Old.


Yesterday Ella turned 8 months old. To celebrate her big day she wanted to go swimming at the local pool. The funny thing is, she found a floating #8 in the water. So Ella held it the whole time and didn't want to let it go at the end. Very symbolic and weird too....
It was a great day!
We love you very much

Ella meeting Santa.....twice!

Ella and I went to Delta hospital to see Santa and watch my parents do their singing thang with the United Entertainer's! We met up with Nick, April and dancing Abby. Right before Ella was going to sit on poor old Santa's lap, she puked all over her and me. I quickly cleaned it up and off she goes. I'm sure he was wondering why this kid smells like puke, yummy! Actaully I think it was creamed corn baby food he got to smell. LOL!!!! It was a little bit of a gong show with so many kids. But it was Ella's first Christmas event ever. She enjoyed watching all the singing and hanging out with cousin Abby. They were so sweet together, Abby dancing to her own tune and Ella looking for anything she's not aloud to touch. It was fun and I'm looking forward to the next event.

Today, Ella and I finished the last of the Christmas shopping in Lansdowne mall and who knew Santa would be there too. So.... Ella got her picture taken with Santa again. This time she only whimpered a little bit ,then got distracted by slay bells ringing. She was so pritty in her dress she never wore before. I think I'm going to love Christmas this year, because I get to do all the kid stuff again, well kind of! hee...Xo
