We made the most of our Sundays while camping by simply relaxing.
We slept in, ate breakfast, got the boat ready and put on the water, picked up pizza and then set sail!
Theres nothing quite like eating your lunch out in the middle of a lake!
Taylor took a few mins to get used to the boat, but then she loved it!
We couldn't get her off of the boat!

Enjoying the view.

Riding with Daddy.

The captain of our boat.

Bring on the pizza!!

Love these cuties!!

After boating we relaxed some more while Taylor had a nap and then ended the day with ice cream!

Bubble gum.

Birthday cake.

My 2 favourite things... ice cream, and these people.

Celebrating Christmas 2017

Christmas was wonderful!
We had Christmas gatherings and events for 6 days straight!
But we loved everyone of them.
Family, food, relaxing, sharing memories, making new ones, games, hockey, cold weather, warm fires, giving gifts, movies, visiting and just being together!

On the 25 we were at Josh's family. 
We had brunch, played hockey in the bitter cold, opened gifts, played games, watched movies, and ate loads of food.
Great Grandma handing out gifts.

Oh the excitement!!!

Thank you hugs.

Enjoying the warm fires.


On the 26 we spent the day with my family (after spending a bunch of time fixing our frozen water and sewer thanks to the super cold weather)
We played games, ate more food, visited, played hockey, opened gifts, played more hockey.

Being cute.

Playing piano.

Opening gifts.

Jen and Ben

Rita wanted a cute picture with Frank, but he was busy....

So she thought she'd join in with Ruth and Jason...

Frank finally realized what has going on so he smiled...

And in the end we got a cute picture. :)

Trying on Daddy's stuff.

All the cuties!!! Plus one more on the way!

On the 28 we had Christmas at home with Steve and Raechelle.
We had brunch, relaxed, opened gifts, the guys played hockey and we visited.

Excited for gifts!

My favourite gift of all!

And Then She Turned Two...

My baby turned two last week.
But turning 2 was so exciting for her, so we celebrated, even though it was kinda hard for the mom.
Two is such a fun age!!
So much to learn, so much to help with, so much wonder in her bright eyes!
We celebrated with Josh's family the evening before.
We had supper and then lots of cake!!

Taylor has had a special giraffe teddy bear since she was just tiny, he has always been her most special stuffy, so it was only fitting to make a giraffe cake, and she loved it!!

Although you couldn't tell from her face. :)

Ready for cake!!

Lighting candles.

Joe needs to find a different spot to stand!! :)

Completely thrilled that we were singing happy birthday for her!


The cake must not survive!

The next morning was present time!

And leftover cake for lunch!

Loving that happy birthday song again!

Happy birthday to my sweet baby!! You bring such joy to our family and we are blessed to be your parents!! We cant wait to see what the next year will bring!
