meet Mac...

the newest addition to our household...

Brian and I went to the city today to try and finish up our Christmas shopping and got a little sidetracked at Best and came home with this! It is crazy the stuff this thing can do and I've hardly had a chance to play with it. I'm sure by the time I get home from hockey tomorrow, he'll have it all figured out though. I wanted to wrap it and put it under the tree but...NOOOOO! lol Oh well, the kids are happy to have a computer as theirs conked out about a month ago and Brian's laptop is on the fritz so no he'll take over my laptop and the kids and I'll have this. I can't wait to really play with iphoto...tested it a bit in the store and it's too cool! I'm thinking that maybe for my milestone birthday coming up, I'll ask for Adobe!

Anyway, Christmas prep is well underway and we're feeling a bit more Christmasy at our house. The kids are excited and the shopping is almost finished. I have some great pics to share of tree and other holiday traditions but they will have to wait as we need to transfer everything over to this computer from my laptop.

So, on that note, I'll get off here so our resident geek can continue working on getting it all set up for us.

Happy Birthday Gavin..

hard to believe that our baby is 6 already!!! Time sure flies when you have a house full of boys! We celebrated as a family yesterday with pancakes for supper...the kids always choose what we eat on their birthday and we had M&M brownies instead of cake. At school, he wore a birthday crown and was given a loot bag by the teacher...he thought that was pretty cool. His party will be tomorrow...a mini stick hockey theme.
Have some fun things planned and will share pics when it's over.

In other news, the kids and I traveled safely to and from the funeral service that was held for my Great Grandma. It was a very exhausting trip...emotionally and physically but happy we went. The service was exactly how she wanted it. She will be missed,always loved and never forgotten. Thanks for your thoughts during this time of sorrow.

I have a lot to try and focus on over the next few weeks and am hoping that having Brian home for most of December will be a help and not a!! I'll keep ya posted!

if I'm going to tackle anything, I need to step away from my computer and get to have a fabulous day...stay warm and be happy.

a roller coaster of emotions

is what i have been riding the last few days.
Sunday...nothing but ecstatic that my favorite football team wins the Grey Cup while we were surrounded by good friends

to being saddened with the news that my 98 year old Great Grandmother passed away on Monday. She led a long and full life and we will miss her terribly. We have been blessed for 14 years to have had 5 generations in our family...those are very long and strong family roots, that have given us an amazing family tree.
We love you Grandma! May you find comfort and peace in the Heavens above.

FOUND: long lost blogger...

that's right, I'm back...did ya miss me? Were you popping in for updates only to see the same thing over and over for the last 3 weeks? Sorry about that people...I have a very good reason for being of my duties as the Director for hockey is to organize the home tournament. This took way more time and effort than I ever thought it would and what bit of a life I had before the planning stages soon disappeared and my life was consumed by phone calls, trips to the city, emails, schedules and conflicts and on and on. It all went into one weekend...this past one and all I can say is... phewf I'm glad it's over!! Overall it was a pretty successful event and Reilly's "A" team won all three round robin games as well as the final! It was a very exciting weekend of hockey but an exhausting one as well. I pretty much went to the arena Friday night and stayed there till Sunday night. Anyway, it's over and will look great on my!!
Here is the best pic I could get of my hockey man all dressed up heading to the rink (he was doing a pretty good job of hiding himself behind his sticks and his I think he looks so handsome in his pink shirt and about you?

had the camera out taking random shots and self portraits...didn't know till I downloaded them to the laptop that Gavin was giving me bunny ears...little

Brian and

bunny ears must have been the theme for the day as Gavin gave them to Zack too

and last but not least...I'm finally sharing some scrappy goodness with you all. Most of these layouts were completed before the tournament planning began and this week I am getting back into a schedule where I have time to do more so here ya go...have a peek

I will be making my rounds to see what you've all been up too...but until then, remember "a day without laughter is a day wasted" - Charlie Chaplin

I'm a week late but here are a few shots from Halloween...ok from pumpkin carving only. We waited way tooo long to get pumpkins this year and instead of each of getting our own, as we usually do, we got one. One for all 6 of us and we ran out of time to carve it so we cleaned it quickly after school and then poked lite brite pegs all over it...looks kinda cool hey! Just for fun, we made the one on the lite brite too! Since the boys were wearing so many different colors, I chose to take the pics with the color accent feature on my allows me to keep one color while every else is black and white. I love it!

I am sad to report that I don't have many pics of the boys in their costumes. It really was a chaotic day for us. I do have a few but have to edit them as they have other kids from school in them and am not comfortable posting pics of other people's kids. I do have to put the boys back in their costumes and take a group shot...noone needs to know it was staged late right?

This hockey tournament that is sucking what little bit of life I had right out of me, is next weekend. I'm not too stressed...yet but getting there!! I think I am pretty prepared but am waiting on things to start coming in and that is stressful cause what happens if it doesn't arrive in time? I'll be soooo happy when it's over and I can just enjoy the rest of the season...hopefully!

I've been enjoying some time scrapbooking and have created some pages I am extremely happy with...will share them next post. I need to get the boys fed so we can go to hockey.

I hope whatever you have been up to is bringing you happiness. Take care everyone.

and the bad blogger award goes to....

me!!! lol...sorry people, I am knee deep in planning a hockey tournament for Reilly's age group (remember that I am the Director...well this is one of my duties!) and it is very time consuming and pressure filled. I had no idea how much goes into planning such a thing...seriously, I am a bit overwhelmed. Thank goodness, last night I had a few parents I know I can count on step up and volunteer to help out with some stuff. Tomorrow, I'll be meeting with a guy that does trophies etc so I can get that ordered as we only have 4 weeks till the big weekend!
In other news...well, we really haven't been up to anything other than the usual, everyday stuff and I won't bore you with those details.
Starting tomorrow, there is hockey 4 days in a row so that doesn't leave much time for anything!
I have been scrapping a bit and wanted to share that with you since it's been awhile since I shared some scrappy goodness but...I haven't had time to take pics of the layouts to post! I also scrapbooked 25 pages for the kindergarten students field trip to the fire station during my first parent helper day yesterday. The teacher gives each child a scrapbook at the end of the year and has asked me to be an integral part of them...I am so excited and more than happy to do it. I couldn't have been given a better parent helper!
Anyway, it's late and I need to get some sleep (heaven for bid I get myself sick from being run down...I really don't have time for that right now!)
Sorry it's a short and boring update...I'll have more to share next time (hopefully that won't be 3 weeks from
I will leave you with this...I love it...enjoy!

Happy 12th Anniversary Brian.

My Best Friend-Tim McGraw
I never had no one that I could count on
I've been let down so many times
I was tired of hurtin'
So tired of searchin'
Til you walked into my life

It was a feelin' I'd never known
And for the first time, I didn't feel alone

You're more than a lover
There could never be another
To make me feel the way you do
Oh, we just get closer
I fall in love all over
Everytime I look at you

I don't know where I'd be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You're my best friend
You're my best friend, oh yeah

You stand by me
And you believe in me
Like nobody ever has
When my world goes crazy
You're right there to save me
You make me see how much I have
And I still tremble when we touch
And oh the look in your eyes
When we make love

You're more than a lover
There could never be another
To make me feel the way you do
Oh, we just get closer
I fall in love all over
Everytime I look at you

I don't know where I'd be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You're my best friend

You're my best friend

You're more than a lover
There could never be another
To make me feel the way you do
Oh, we just get closer
I fall in love all over
Everytime I look at you

I don't know where I'd be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You're my best friend

You're my best friend
You're my best friend

drum roll please...we have a huge announcement to make...

We have started our own company...well my name is on the paperwork so that counts right and today is the first day for Brian to be his own boss (well, at least in his professional!) He left this morning at 4:30 in this...his brand new 2007 GMC Sierra!

The best part for me is that is seats all 6 of us. We might be getting a trailer in the spring (I've already started looking!!) now that we have something to pull it with.
So this is why I have been MIA in blogland...we've been pretty busy with all the yadda yadda yadda that goes along with having your own business.
Anyway, we are excited and a bit nervous about it but believe it was the right thing to do!

What is underway for Reilly and going well so far! He made the A team this year so we have a bit more traveling to do than previously but still shouldn't be too bad. Carsyn is patiently waiting for the local (in the next town over) pool to open back up so he can start swimming lessons. He wants to get his snorkeling and scuba diving certificates when he's a bit older. Gavin is enthralled with Kindergarten...loves it and his teacher. Last week, we went on a field trip to the fire station and they got a little fireman's hat to keep, spray the hose, try on some gear and we all got a ride back to the school in a firetruck!! It was pretty cool. This week, his class is having a harvest tea on Wednesday, so I'll be going to that. The kids also participated in the Terry Fox run at school and the information leading up to the actual run really had an impact on Gavin. He came home and talked about Terry Fox and having a fake leg because of the cancer and how he needed money from people to beat the cancer. He made some phone calls to his family and they were all so touched by his 'speal' almost made me cry. Zack! Doing well in school, anxiously awaiting basketball season and being a huge asset to me around this house. With Brian being away, he really steps up to the plate and helps with the boys and some chores...and he can do all that while texting his buddies!!
In scrappy news, I went to an all day crop over the weekend and ended up with a teaching gig. The ladies want me to teach classes so...I'm going to do it! We have been talking about making our attached garage a family/rec room but we are now going to make it a scrap studio and I'll teach from home. Until it's done though, I'm just going to find a church basement maybe to use. I could actually do it in my kitchen as it will be smaller classes to accommodate some ladies daytime schedules and others in the evenings or weekends. Anyway, I am really excited about that. I'm also, I think...putting in an application to be an Educational Assistant at our elementary school. I've done up a resume and am just waiting on clearance checks to come back saying I'm fit to work with children!!! I'll keep ya posted about that.
Anyway, I'm going to make the rounds and visit you all to see what you've been up to.

the 3 R's...rejeuvenated, relaxed, recommited!

is how I feel since returning home from my trip to BC this past weekend. I had an amazing time...despite my anxiety about flying for the first time in 21 years. It was almost an enjoyable experience and am now ready for our flight to Disneyland in March (more on that as the time draws near).
It was sooo good to see Chrystal and the boys. She picked me up at the airport alone so we got to ramble and catch up. It was nice. Friday was a typical day...running errands and chasing kids but we did go out for supper.
Saturday was awesome...we packed a picnic lunch and made the one hour trip to the ocean...that's right...I spent the entire day walking along the beach, picking seashells and writing in the sand. We walked to the pier and out to the end. It's been quite a few years since I've been to the ocean and was completely blown away by it's beauty and calming effect (for me anyway). I took probably at least 150 pics in total and will share some of the favs with you...

I absolutely am in love with this one because everything is b&w except the blue (my camera has this fun feature called color it!) *click on any image to see it bigger*
just a couple of collages...
I was able to play with lot's of settings on my new camera...these underwater shots were taken using the "aquarium" mode
awe...I'm such a sap hey...took this using the "beach" mode
another b&w with blue as the only color
I love this one too...the shimmer of the sun setting is so pretty

there are a lot more but some include Chrystal and the boys and I don't have her permission to post them and I'm the only one who really knows her so...ya know!
My flight home was delayed because the pilot flying to pick us up, hit a flock of birds (sparrows I think they said) and the plane had to be inspected before we were allowed to get on it. Brian came to pick me up alone, as the boys didn't want to come...little buggers didn't even miss me because, and I quote, "we had lot's of fun with Dad this weekend", end quote! I was extremely happy to hear that they had some quality time with their Dad, who they don't see too often, because of his working out of town. It was a win-win situation for all of us. I cannot wait to go time, we're having fish'n'chips on the beach from Moby Dick's!!! (we might actually take a summer vacation out that way next year, stopping to do all the touristy things along the way).
I'm feeling so good, about me, my family and life in general that it seems the perfect time to recommit myself to my diet and exercise routine too. I will win the battle this time...I'm tired of it and it has to stop here (picture me putting my foot down!
In other news, the boys are all adjusting to school, new teachers and getting back into routine. Hockey starts today for Reilly, so that will keep us busy about 5 days/week!!! (don't forget I'm the director so that adds extra busy this hockey season for me).
I guess that's it in a nutshell, so until next time, play safe and have fun (did i just sound like the Bodybreak people...???lol)

leaving on a jet plane...

in the morning I am on my way to visit my friend Chrystal for the weekend in beautiful British Columbia. Weather is supposed to be warm enough for the beach...can you imagine (those of you that live where we've had the heat on and the kids wore gloves to school this week understand how far fetched that may I am also hoping to meet up with my long lost friend Tera...we haven't seen each other since were 8 yrs old and lost touch 16 years ago. We recently reconnected via my brother and facebook (no I am still not a Turns out she lives about 45 minutes from Chrystal so we are both hoping that there is time to squeeze in a visit...even coffee at Timmies would be good enough...just to see each other!
Anyway, I will share it all when I get back. I'll have an update on the men in my life then too.
For now, I need to finish putting stuff in my suitcase and making sure I comply with all the regulations so noone feels me up at!! Have a great weekend everyone!

off he goes...

Kindergarten Wonder
by Wendy Silva

I wonder what you're doing right now
and if everyone is treating you kind.
I hope there is a special person,
a nice friend you can find.
I wonder if the teacher knows just
how special you are to me.
And if the brightness of your
heart is something she can see.
I wonder if you are thinking about
me and if you need a hug.
I already miss the sound of your
voice and how you give my leg a tug.
I wonder if you could possibly understand
how hard it is for me to let you grow.
On this day know that my heart breaks,
for this is the first step in letting my baby go.

well, it's just me here...all alone and Brian just called to check on me! I haven't cried and I thought for sure I would. I was so proud of him this morning...he knew exactly what to do and where to go. He is ready and I was happy and excited for was hard to make that a sad thing. Don't get me wrong, I cannot wait to go pick him up, give him a squishy hug and hear all about his day....ok, now I'm a bit teary eyed! I need to go find something to do!

good stuff

Just thought I would share some good things that have been happening...
The kids are back into the swing of things with school and having a routine (I must admit I am liking having one They all seem happy with their teachers and classmates so that gives me hope the year will be a good one...we are only 4 days in but hey...a girls gotta
dream right!!
After some tears in the eyes, Gavin had a great orientation day on Wednesday. He's been beyond excited to go to school, even more so after we bought his school shoes (he'd put them on as soon as he woke up and come out of his room wearing them and just his While I was buckling him into the van he told me he was scared. I gave him the usual speal about nothing to be afraid of...blah...blah...blah. He was a bit apprehensive at first but when I left he was doing ok. When I got back to pick him up, he looked at me over his shoulder and said, "Mom, I'm not scared anymore." I was relieved to hear that. He was however, pretty mad that he had to leave his shoes at school and that he has to wait 5 sleeps to go back. I'm hoping that Monday, his first official day will be an easy adjustment.
Some good things are also in the works for Brian regarding work...nothing confirmed yet so I don't want to jinx it by putting it out there but I will share as soon as something concrete happens.
And that leaves me...after being in somewhat of a funk lately, I think I have perhaps snapped out of it. I don't mean a creative funk either, although that has been affected by my life-in-general-funk. It's been hard adjusting to living here over the last 2 years (for me not anyone else in my family) and sometimes I let it get the better of me and it brings me down. But...this week I took a step to change that and put myself out there a bit in regards to meeting other parents and making plans with them, calling up a friend to have lunch and even committing to crop at the end of the month. Last night, another friend and I went to Scrapfest and did some shopping after grabbing a bite to eat but most importantly...we laughed like school girls and it was fabulous. I am also looking forward to meeting some of my online friends at a crop soon. I am kind of a social gal and I know that has been the hardest thing for me...not having people to spend time with, scrap with and just have fun with. Things are definitely looking up and my spirits have lifted....that's some good stuff.
Oh, another good thing...actually it's kinda cool...last night when my friend and I were shopping, we saw some ladies we met at a crop we attended for National Scrapbook was pretty cool they remembered us too. We exchanged email addys and hopefully could hook up with them for a crop.
And last,fellow scrapbookers, check this's too cool. I think she's on too something! I was in it last night and the set up is amazing!!
Have a fabulous weekend everyone...I'm off to scrap!

Monday, September 3, 2007

the rest of the story...

hey boys...whatcha doing? I have no idea what possessed me to grab the camera and snap this photo but I did and it's good for a laugh if nothing else..of course the boys don't think it's too funny and Zack is glad he's not in it!!

This special lady is my Great Grandma, who will be 98 years old in her!
she was so surprised to see all of walk in to her room...first my Grandma went in, a few seconds later my Mom, then me, followed by the boys and her eyes lit up more each time. It was awesome!! Here is the latest 5 generation picture. I'm hoping the nurse that took them got a better one on my Mom's camera as my batteries died and she only took a couple. Not that I really care if everyone is smiling and looking at the camera...the idea is just that we have it.

The boys are going back to school tomorrow and I'm sure that will make for a story
for next time.
Until then.....

hodge podge of stuff

Knowing we were going to visit my Grandma and knowing she makes crabapple jelly, we thought it would be cool if she taught me how to make crabapple jelly so...the boys each picked a pail of apples from our backyard and loaded them into the van. When we arrived, I asked Grandma if she would teach me to make the jelly with the family recipe. She kinda giggled and said there is no family recipe...she just uses the one from the certo box! I, was devastated. All these years I thought for some reason, that there was a family recipe and to find out there wasn't crushed me. My Grandma tried to make me feel better by saying that it's the same recipe her Mom used, my Mom said it's the same one she used so it's kinda a family!! Thanks Grandma for making me feel better and for taking the time to teach me, ok mostly do on your own, how to make crabapple jelly. It is delicious and I have happily been sharing some of the 22 jars we made with family and neighbors. I love you!
Here are the boys picking the apples....

We had a nice visit and I have other pics to share but blogger isn't allowing me to upload anymore today so I'll add the rest later. It was great to surprise my Great Grandma with a visit and to update our 5 generation picture. I can't believe she'll be 98 in October...we have been so lucky to have had that many generations for as long as we have.

Here is a collage of hockey school photos. I am blown away by the zoom on this new camera...I got pretty close to him even when he was on the opposite side of the rink. I also love the burst mode...oh and the color selection mode. Some of my favs are the ones where just his jersey is gold and the rest is black and white (those were not edited with software).

and a few snapshots to share of out last days in the pool and some scenery in the yard...I LOVE the sunflowers pictures. The last 2 pics were taken on campus @ the UofA.

So, the boys are just about ready for school. Gavin and I are having our date this Friday to get his shopping done and have lunch together. He is the only one excited about going to school. Zack told him to just wait, he'll see it's nothing to get excited!!

I guess, that's it, that's all for now. I need to save something to blab, I mean blog about in a day or so when I add those other photos. Have a good evening, I'm outta here!

Thank You Lori

for the surprise email I got from you today with my banner resized to the appropriate dimensions so that now it is centered. (I had no idea you read my but am glad you did/do.) Thank you very much for doing that for me, I am very grateful for the help.

I'll be back in a day or so to post an update and include pics from our trip to my Mom's. Trying to get the house in order after being gone and the final touches the boys need for back to school.

Friday, August 17, 2007

whatcha think....

of my new banner? I love it...just wish it was centered...can anyone help me with that?
This is how I relaxed tonight after a llllooooonnngggg week at hockey camp. Too bad the rest of the weekend won't be as relaxing. I have a hockey executive meeting tomorrow at 9am...yep that's right, I have to be up and out of the house before 9 on a Saturday for hockey and the season is still almost 2 months away! Then, it is Carsyn's turn for school shopping and lunch with Mom so there goes the rest of the day. Sunday we'll be getting ready to leave for my Mom's house for a week so if I don't get back here or in touch with you otherwise...this is why.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
ps if anyone can help with centering my banner, I'd be very grateful. If not, then it stays crooked I guess!!

hockey in August...?

yeppers...for us anyway. Reilly has been attending hockey school this week and as good as it's been for him, I am exhausted. It takes us about an hour to get there and even longer to get home due to rush hour traffic and city drivers can be crazy! I am in no way stereotyping all of you but wow...I really don't know how people do that everyday. It's not for me anymore. Funny how that changes hey...just 2 short years ago, I was a city girl thinking that small town life was so not me and now, I wouldn't go back. Anyway, back to the hockey...Reilly is really coming along way but I am most proud of his coachability factor and sportsmanship....way to be Son, I am very proud of you!
On another Reilly note, his fish, Slapshot (a Japanese fighting fish), passed away last night and our overly sensitive child was devastated. I did my best to reassure him that it wasn't anything he did or didn't do in looking after him but that it just happens. Poor guy sobbed himself to sleep. I cleaned up the tank and put everything away so he wouldn't have to see it and I thought he was doing ok today...until we came home from hockey school and he entered his room. He started crying all over again. He even googled the kind of fish he had and set a picture of one as the desktop background on the kids computer...poor guy.
The other boys are doing well, enjoying the summer. Gavin and I were talking about going to school the other day and he told me he wasn't sure if he was!! He'll love it I'm sure when he gets there. We've begun the back to school shopping and that has the boys thinking about seeing their friends and hanging out...the actual school part of back to school is not a popular thought around here but hey, I don't blame them...that was my least favorite part too back in the!
Speaking of school, my DH is now a student too. He is taking a course through distance learning that when he is finished, should land him a job that allows him to be home every day...woohoo!! The kids and I are very excited about having him home again but I think he is the most excited. No doubt it will be an adjustment but totally worth it!
I guess I am kinda a student too...I am studying and learning how to use my new camera! We've been talking about upgrading for awhile and contemplated a digital SLR. I ended up with a Canon S5 IS. I was afraid of the SLR because even though I was ready for an upgrade from just a point and shoot, I was completely intimidated by them. So much more you have to know and set on your own and I am not there yet. I feel and so does the guy who sold me the camera, that this was the right step. I love it so far. Still have a lot to learn but am having a blast playing around with it so far. I'll share some pics soon.
Have a great weekend.

quick update...

it has been soooo hot here that the kids and I were able to convince Brian that we needed a pool and he finally agreed it was a good are a few pics that indicate it was money well spent!!!

We also went to a local outdoor amusement park and the kids splashed around in the bumper boats...we also mini golfed, Gavin drove a go kart and all the boys used the batting cages. It was a great day!
This..not such a great day...(only because the Riders lost)!! This was the best day EVER!!! We had so much fun I can't even begin to describe it. The whole entire atmosphere was amazing to be a part of and the rivalry between Brian and my Aunts and Uncles was hilarious!! We even saw a streaker...yep you read that right, a streaker ran across the field from one end almost all the way to the other. He was coming in our direction and we all saw a bit more than we bargained for (it was pretty funny actually but the boys were pretty grossed out)!! If you are looking for pics of that...I don't have any to!
So, there is a briefing of what we've been up to since my last post. Most days are pretty relaxed, just hanging out. Weekends are spent getting stuff done around the yard such as fencing and the patio is on hold until we can get a bobcat to come and dig for us. Some weekends we just spend time together instead of doing anything but that really is more important...the other stuff can wait .
Started back to school shopping on Friday. Decided to do one boy/week as it's a bit easier on the pocket book and on all of us involved. This way, I only have to listen to one child whine that it's taking too long etc. as opposed to all of!! Plus, it gives me a chance to spend some one on one time with each of them.
I've been really feeling my creative mojo and will post pics of some of the stuff I've been working soon. Please don't hold it against me if it ends up taking awhile...I've been trying to cut back on my computer use and spend more time with the boys and Brian...when he's home!
Oh ya, the kids and I are going camping this week with my friend and her daughter. should be a fun time with some photo opportunities.
Hope you all are doing well, enjoying your summer and having fun with family and friends.

coming soon...

a longer, more detailed post about what we've been up and the long awaited pics of the boys from the wedding in their golf shirts and flip flops...and for those that are interested, some scrapbook stuff I have done in the last month or so.

Just had to share how excited we are to be going to this game on Friday night...


This is my first ever CFL game and I can't wait. I cheer for them both except when they play each other, then it has to be Riders all the way. The boys are planning on painting their hair and faces and Zack and Reilly are going to paint their with a D and the other with a fence...crazy kids I tell ya...yes I'll post pics of that!!! There are 14 of us in total going and we're all family. It's going to probably be the highlight of our summer. Can't wait!!
If you're a fan, tune in to Friday Night Football...ya just might see us!!

Until we meet again, take care, have fun and play safe.
