The Royal Wedding

I’m glad I got up and watched it with my mom.  Will be something I will look back on in 30 years and remember exactly what I was doing :)Wills and Kate look so happy, and look like the “new age” of royalty, more down-to-earth and sincere.  Such a beautiful bride!This one’s for James ;)  My mom loves the smell of Maverick’s paws!  LOLPapa came to visit a little later too

Getting ready…

Because I am half British, and my mom is a native Brit (immigrated to Canada when she was 2), we have to gear up and be ready for theeeeee Royal Wedding!  My mom is coming over to watch the coverage with me tomorrow morning at 4:30.  She’s bringing authentic English Breakfast tea, and crumpets (of course!), along with strawberries and we’re making real whipped cream.  I bought some English muffins and my Grandma Huddy’s favourite cookies (so we can feel like she’s a part of it too!)  James is even getting up to watch with us…at least for the first half an hour before he leaves for Windsor to get ready for the Run Under the Sun this Sunday.The preparations for the Royal Wedding started tonight with Annika learning how to drink from a proper tea cup, and Selena sporting a pretty dress and hat.My grandma Huddy would be proud – she gave me these china tea cups, and those cookies were her favourite – in fact, one of the last things she ever ate!


This is what determination looks like in a 5-month-old.

Happy Easter!

Easter swim

Had a great family swim today at the West End Center – Selena’s first time in a pool, and she loved it….looks like we have two little fishies in the family!All bundled up after her very first swim!

attempts at Easter pics of the girls..

Lesson learned – never try to force a 2.5-year-old to smile for a picture…this was the best one…and the runner up….selena was enjoying it though…round 2 (a week later)…….Wouldn’t let me take more than two pictures until she decided that dancing was more fun Time for a nap..too many pictures…she would let me take a third picture only if it was beside Princess Doll, not Selena


We had a little celebration dinner at Charcoal Steakhouse for Coleen last night for finishing her first of seven semesters of pharmacy school.  She gets a ten-day break and is back to the grind again.  Miro surprised her with a chocolate cake for dessert!

I Believe…

I Believe...
That just because two people argue,

It doesn't mean they don't love each other..
And just because they don't argue,
It doesn't mean they do love each other.

I Believe...
That we don't have to change friends if
We understand that friends change.

I Believe....
That no matter how good a friend is,
they're going to hurt you,
every once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.

I Believe.....
That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.

Same goes for true love.

I Believe...
That you can do something in an instant
That will give you heartache for life.

I Believe....
That it's taking me a long time
To become the person I want to be.

I Believe...
That you should always leave loved ones
with Loving words...
It may be the last time you see them!

I Believe....
That you can keep going long after you think you can't.

I Believe....
That we ar…
