Farewell Fair February

And just like that the first two months of 2010 are over.

I wanted to share a few pics of the new home we're building.

A few of you asked "didn't you just build a house?"...yes, you're right we did.
In fact we only moved into the house we built in April 2009.
And by the end of July we knew we had to be elsewhere.

And a new building project was born.

We found the perfect lot, with a beautiful ravine behind us.
Translation: complete privacy and no neighbours in the back :)

This is the view from our nook and family room.

Here's a side view:

...and the other side:

Apparantly the roof shingles are up.
I'll have more pics after next weekend.

Speaking of next weekend, I'll be having a breast reduction and a lift on Thursday.
After I lost some weight last year, my breasts didn't change much and need to be brought into proportion with my body. Hopefully it should ease up some of the back pain I've been having.
And the lift?
Well after nursing 4 kids, need I say more?

Fingers crossed it all goes off without a hiccup :)
And by "hiccup" I mean without the surgeon getting a case of the hiccups while he has a scalpel in one hand and my boob in the other ...hee-hee...

Later Gators :)

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Apparantly my word for 2010 didn't apply to my blog updates...hee-hee.

Sorry for the long (and dramatic) pause between posts.
Lots going on here.
And lots.
And then a little more...Lots!

But I had the good luck to stop and play with paper and glue last week, when Hubby took the kiddos to the toboggan hill near the lake here...

And boy...did I have fun!

You know, when anyone comments "You've been with "Upsy Daisy" for a long time", I can say honestly with no hesitation, "I LOVE their stuff"...really I do.

And their new releases at CHA last month just kept the romance going for me.

I tried not to play favourites, but "See ya Later Alligator" just sat on my lap and fed me chocolates...tee-hee...

And this is the product of that bribery ;)

I'm gonna be back to update on what's been happening...some pics on the development of the house we're building; my trip to finally see a man about new boobs (hell yeah!) and other schtuff :)

'til then be good and have a great weekend (well it IS Thursday)
