Happy Anniversary Baby!

I Love You


We did it!!!!!!!!!!  Officially completed our temporary move into my parent’s basement apartment, thanks to the Hercules's hours and work James put in…and my brother’s and Karsten’s muscles on Saturday morning, we got the move done in great time!   We have the keys to our townhouse until Sunday night at 11:59.  I still can’t believe we’ll never able to step foot in that house again….it feels like I’ve never moved before….which I have, but I guess as a kid you don’t see the sentimental side of things as much.  It does feel really great to know that our move is complete, we’re pretty much settled for now, Annika has transitioned amazingly well and now it’s just the waiting game.The framing on our new house is almost complete.  The roof is now on, and we’re just waiting for the staircase to go up so that we can sneak a peak at the upstairs!  Will post pics soon.James raced in Tobago this morning.  He placed second behind Jason (forget his last name, but super fit triathlete).  Appare…

Calm before the storm…

What another great weekend for BJAM!  James had his annual “Guys day” on Saturday that always includes an “epic” mountain bike ride, a big feast for lunch and something low key in the afternoon to get ready for the craziness of the evening….I escaped the mayhem that got to our house in the afternoon and took Annika and Mavie to my parents to sleep in piece :)  Rob Currie and I had lots of fun in the morning with Annika and his nephew Hayden.  Annika loved Hayden’s company and couldn’t have been more content being right next to him the entire day.Daddy wasn’t impressed with Annika’s flirty behaviour :)Annika’s new buddySunday was Steph’s Baby Shower and it went very well!  Jamie got a lot of super cute new outfits and lots of great newborn essentials.  Less than two months now until we get to meet the little guy, I can’t wait!!!David (my bro) had an awesome race at the Disney Half Ironman on Sunday.  He placed 10th out of a tough pro field, and is super happy with his result.  He avera…

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom, I Love You

A Newborn's Conversation with God
A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow,  
but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"  
God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."  
The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy."  
God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you.  And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."  
Again the small child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"  
God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."  
"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"  
God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and wi…

Great weekend!

What an awesome weekend we’ve had!  Our very good friends Miro and Coleen came for a weekend visit.  Miro officially became a licensed pilot last year, and is currently in the process of upgrading and is considering the possibility of becoming a commercial pilot in the future.  He comes this way to get his training hours in at the Kitchener/Waterloo International Airport.  He got some flying in Friday but unfortunately was not so lucky Saturday with a storm that came through.  While Miro spent his time at the airport doing paperwork on Saturday, Coleen and I went up to Listowel to the all-famous Listowel yarn outlet “Spinrite”.  We got some great deals on a bunch of yarn, so I think we’re set for awhile; but I intend on going back up there when they have their annual tent sale to stock up for the next five years!  I have Coleen to thank for getting me hooked to the crocheting world…I always pictured it as a grandma thing, but it’s totally not!  It’s something to do in your spare time …
