Charlie is One!

Posted by Jamie

On Charlie's birthday we went to the beach with friends.  Picked Auntie Theresa up from the Airport and bought cupcakes.  He loved the cupcakes.  He is such a wonderful blessing to us.  He has a smile full of sunshine and a sweet happy personality.  He loves his Mom more than anyone in the world and likes to be with her constantly.  Marvin can make him giggle and cry very easily.  He's been crawling for about a month and loves to play with anything Marvin is playing with.  He is basically the perfect baby and we couldn't be happier to be his parents.  We love you Charlie, so much we celebrated your birth 3 times this year!

I love that face.

All he wanted to do was touch the flame.

Yummy cup cake.  Ever since that day he goes crazy every time he see a cupcake.

Marvin helped him blow out his candles.  He's only one so I'm not sure why there were so many candles.

Marvin thought Charlie had enough parties and decided that this one was his.


Canada Day

Posted by Jamie

I didn't want to go to Prince's Island park because I've been 3 years in a row and each year I feel uncomfortable because it is load and crowed. Nathan said "we are going, it's a tradition". He sounded so serious I decided to let him have his way and we went. Surprise, surprise I actually had a good time. I think this might mean that I've become a city girl or motherhood has finally made me chill out. Prince's Island Park was just as I remembered it, loud and crowed but for some reason I had a good time. It was probably because I was with my wonderful husband and happy sons. Marvin and Charlie had a wonderful time playing at the playground and wadding pool. They listened to music, waved flags made a craft, wrestled on our blanket and ate ice cream. When we got home we watched a movie and relaxed on the couch. It was a great day! Oh the boys wore patriotic colours because I actually remembered to buy them red and white clothes and we started off our day with a red and white breakfast. Ice cream and strawberries on whole wheat flax waffles. Nathan and I were exhausted by our celebrating and went to bed at 9pm. the next morning Nathan asked "did we sleep through the fireworks." I answered "I think we did". We live really close to down town and sleep with our window open so that is pretty amazing. That shows that we truly partied hard on canada day.


Best Mother’s Day Ever!!!

Posted by Jamie

I woke up this morning to find adorable crafts scattered around the house, Kit Kats, a beautiful balloon and a big girl spill proof glass. As I was nursing Charlie Nathan had me watch the cutest video of my darlings showing they love me.  My husband truly is the kindest, most thoughtful, creative, talented and loving husband ever!! He was definitely worth the wait.  I hope you enjoy my video at least half as much as I did.  Happy Mother's Day to all the ladies out there.

So Jamie and I played Easter bunny on Saturday and decided we would try to teach Marvin how to search for Easter eggs and candy around the house when he woke up.It started up rough but got better quick. Check out the home movie:


Too bad, we didn’t win the iPad

Posted by nathan

Hey everyone
So we didn't end up winning that iPad contest I asked you all to vote for, but I DID win an iPad from an other video contest I entered at school. I also won an iPod Nano! So I'm doing pretty good in the prize winning department. I sold the iPad to my dad and he really likes it.

Thanks a bunch for your help anyways.
