Baby I is enjoying her kitchen.

She was worried about standing against it, she usually leans forward onto it but B got her to forget she was worried. B can always make her smile!!!

She loves the food sent to her by her cousins in Japan. We had put it away and just remembered it so it goes perfectly with her new kitchen

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. We have had a good 2nd half of 2006 and hope it continues for 2007

Christmas Day

We had a great day, busy day, but great day!!!!

Christmas morning began with me actually waking up first, odd for sure, and shortly after B came tip-toeing into the living room. He then woke dad and baby I was standing in her crib, B then so nicely woke S and they sat with him in bed for a little then we all headed to see what was under the tree.

B such an awsome kid helped S and Baby I open their gifts as well as opened his. Everyone seemed very happy!!

S got the Wii and had lots of fun today playing with dad!!

We put the turkey in mid morning and began everything else for our dinner. Early afternoon was busy getting dinner prepared. Everything turned out great except the stuffing was kinda gross but hey thats why there is a garbage bin, right! My parents were over for the afternoon and evening and we had fun playing games after dinner.

The kids have gone to bed happy today for sure

I found this on another site and thought i'd add it here
Giving thanks for a special needs child

1) You never have to worry about worrying over nothing.
Let other parents obsess over the frivolous and the shallow. Your child will make sure you always have something worthy to worry about.

2) Developmental delays = more years of hugs, kisses, and little-kid sweetness.
My 13-year-old still wants to sit in my lap, give me hugs, and tell me he loves me. What mom of a sullen teen doesn't secretly wish for the same?

3) Any little milestone is a cause to throw a party.
Your child works hard for every step, sit-up and syllable, giving you lots to be excited about.

4) Every day is a learning experience.
Some days it's a pop quiz, some days it's a crash course, but life with your child is always an education, for sure.

5) You have the privilege of putting several doctors' children through college.
After paying for all those appointments, you may feel like a one-family scholarship foundation. Put your child's name on some letterhead and take pride.

6) You have an iron-clad escape excuse for any occasion.
You'd love to stay at that boring party, crowded event, endless church service, but, you know, your child just can't tolerate it. (And if sometimes it's you who can't tolerate it -- who's to know?)

7) Coming up with new strategies every day keeps your brain sharp.
They say doing crossword puzzles helps ward off Alzheimer's. Figuring out your child's schedules and treatments and lessons and rights and restrictions must easily provide twice the protection.

8) Your blessings will always be fully counted.
Other parents may take the gifts that their children bring for granted. Not you. Not ever.

The Big Christmas Dress!!!

Saturday, December 16, 2006

Ahhh Christmas can now come....

I am a happy momma. I was feeling very desperate, all I wanted for S for Christmas was Ninteno Wii and were there any to be found?


Best Buy was selling 22 Friday morning, I got there at 9:30pm Thursday night and I was special number 9 in line - got my chair, my umbrella and my blanket and got comfy. My awsome friend, Suzanne came a while later, she was just going to keep me company for a while, but I think the intrigue got to her. we did some re-arranging - at 10:47 pm she headed to my house, picked up Stel and the sleeping kids, came back to best buy picked up her van then they drove to her home dropped off her van and stel brought her back to best buy and he went home to put the kids back to bed. All this so her hubby could bring her kids in the morning on his way to work so she could also get a Wii and keep me company!! By midnight there were more than 22 people in line so that was all the Wii's though more still waited. Well after a couple hours and some interesting conversation with others in a tent with insane rain outside and actually inside a bit too I was really re-thinking the fact that Stel took the van home - we started the evening with 2 and now had none. A cab ride home and the van was back with us and the 125km/h winds. We enjoyed watching the tent we had been in actually finally flattened to the ground because of wind. Where would the drama be if it was a beautiful warm sunny night instead of the worst windstorm BC hydro workers had ever seen!!! We hadn't been in the van 1/2 hour when we were out helping the tent guys and then stayed out as even more people were showing up and couldn't lose our spot after all this. The winds died down a bit around 5 and it was getting awfully cold for us but around 8 we got our paper and our guarentee that we both had one so we went to starbucks for a washroom, hot drink and headed back to warm up and dry off a bit in the van. 9:08 am finished paying and I felt good.
S is such an amazing kid and he fights so hard with all he goes thru - I will do anything for him

Thank you Suzanne, what should we do next .......
