My Emma Turned 3!

I can't believe how big she is getting. 3 years old already. I love her to bits. She is such a nice little girl to everyone. Emma still doesn't care much to hold her brother. I think she is just waiting for him to get big enough to run around and play with. Although she is not really into him that much she still is concerned about him and where he is. She likes to give him toys and make him happy. Emma loves to help me clean the house... unless it involves putting her toys and stuff away! She had a great birthday party with her two favorite cousins Logan and Kyla. We had lots of fun ate lots of cake. We still have lots of cake... anyone hungry?!!! Here's a few pictures from the party. Everyday she makes us laugh, somedays she cries, and somedays I want to cry too. We have a great time and couldn't imagine our lives without our cutie pie Emma.

Just a Little Funny Story!

So last night I was on my way to play volleyball and it was raining. Naturally I turned on my windshield wipers and I thought all was good. I kept on driving and got to a big hill. For those of you who don't live in fort mac... there is no where to pull over on the hills once you are on your way down. So anyways I got to a stop light just before I went down the hill and noticed that my wiper was getting a little loose. I didn't really think anything of it... even though this little voice in my head was saying maybe you should fix it. "Nahhhh I'll be fine it's not that far to volleyball" I said to myself. Well sure enough just as I get to the point of no return on the hill I go to wipe off my window and there goes my wiper flying through the air! It was pretty funny. I don't think the truck behind me thought it was though... he totally swerved out of the way like a log flew at him. At least I didn't get any crazy looks or the finger from him. Just a little reminder when you see your window wiper come loose it's best to stop and fix it. So for all of you that live in Fort Mac if you are driving down confederation hill and you see a wiper blade on the road... its mine!

Emma and Tobin

Wow how great it feels to finally be home. I was expecting to be home last Thursday but an unexpected event occured and we had to stay longer. My grandpa Francis passed away last wednesday evening. We knew that eventually it was going to happen just not that fast. He was always such a happy man. He always had a good candy stach for the grandkids... and himself. I loved his huge bear huges and wet juicy kisses on the cheek. I'm going to miss him. If I would have known this was going to happen I would have given him a message to send tell Ethan.

Travis got to fly down on Friday... thank goodness he finally got some days off. And I was happy that I didn't have to drive home alone.

While I was down south Emma got to go to the dentist and get her teeth fixed. She did well doesn't remember a thing! They did have to freeze her when she was out and she hated the feeling of it coming out. Also she bit her lip and it swelled up to the size of a small basketball!!! I had pictures booked for them too while we were down there. I was sure hoping the swelling went down before them!! I was pretty good by picture time. Here are a few of the pictures we had done. I think they turned out great.


You can see just how much Emma loves to hold her little brother. She was bribed with fruit snacks for this picture!!

The Doodlebops!!

So I'm down here in Taber and it's nice to not see any snow!! I almost forgot what the grass looked like. Anyways we stopped off in Vermillion to go to the Doodlebops concert. I have never heard so many little kids yelling and screaming all in one place! It was so crazy. Emma loved it. She wasn't quite brave enough to stand up and dance. She did loosen up a little at the end! I'm at my parents house and can't download my photo's yet. Oh there will be pictures! You'll just have to wait for another week.
Emma also got to go to the dentist for the second time. Luckly this time she got to sleep through the whole thing so the dentist could actually do something. She ended up with a few fillings. Thank goodness she never go sick from the anestetic. She did good. She faught me for a few minutes but when she breathed in the gas it wasn't long before she was nice and relaxed! It's funny how they know something is up even before you stop the truck. We pulled up to the dental office in the back... and she was yelling "no, no, no...." How she knew where we were at 6:45am beats me! I'll post more about my trip when we get home.
