Craft Sale!

This past saturday my mother and I shared a table at the Exshaw Christmas Craft Sale. It was good. Not very busy but enough for me to make $15 dollars after the $20 table fee! I even sold some earrings. (which is about time). The most popular tems were the baby stuffed softies that I had made. There a a few on my etsy site if you are interested.
Last night baby came down with a cold so nobody got any sleep last night. :(. Now he is finally sleeping! Took a while and a walk but yay hopefully he feels better when he wakes up!

Here are some photos of what we have been doing lately. Oh and he says: balloon, shoe, cracker and duck!
P.s this is our indoor tomato garden about 6 tomatoes to date and a few on the way!

Back Spasms!

Up very early this morning at evil 6 am with back spasms that would not stop. Upon taking some advil my stomache decided that it will be sensitive and there the advil went down the porcelin god. Bugger!

Now it's about 11:45am and I was able to take some tylenol at 9 so I feel okay. But still very sore and very frustrated. This is the 10th time or so that my sleep has been interupted by the evil back spasm. At least once a week for the past few months. :(

On a high note the Christmas craft sale is tomorrow so today I am getting everything ready to go and making a few last minute items! Yay!

Currently baby and I have a brutal cold. This cold makes baby wine and make very desperate sounds all the time. Not to mention that sleeping well is evading both of us due to congestion and generally feeling awful. Colds suck!

Last night hubby and I decided to go see a movie. We watched Eagel Eye, I reccomend this movie to anyone that is interested in a movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole 2 hrs! Great actors that played their parts perfectly. A great movie to blow your very tight budget on!

When we arrived home a shooting star shot across the sky just over our house! It was awsome, its been so long since either of us has seen a shooting star!

Here are a few pics of baby helping me clean up the garden for winter.

First Steps!

About 30 minutes ago baby took his first steps! 3 steps from Daddy to Mommy! Mommy was so busy celebrating after that I was unable to get a camera ready. Next time, probably tomorrow, he is much too tired tonight to do any more walking!

Best moment of my life to date!

Fish in the Fall

In the morning of Baby's birthday we went for a walk, there is a beautiful path off one of the roads by our house so we went down it a short ways (meters) because there have been many bears in the area lately. Beautiful pictures but baby slept so he would have lots of energy for his party!
This is what mobiles were designed for right?
This is the beginning of at least a picture a day for the next year of baby's life! Enjoy.

Baby's birthday was today, my baby is no longer a baby, now he is a toddler.

All my family came to celebrate the birthday of my baby, Granny, Grampa, Auntie Sam, Auntie Laura, Auntie Kate, Auntie Kim, Uncle Devon, Uncle Mike, Bailey, Ben, Donna, Jay, Mark, Marie, Sandie, Mike and baby Ella. What a party!

I made a chocolate cake from a recipe I found on the internet, Best recipe ever for a cke without eggs! It turned out awsome here are some pictures! Baby had a great time with his friends and cousin fighting over toys and chewing and ripping wrapping paper. What could be better?

Baby had way too many toys before his birthday but now he has way too many toys! A few trucks fro ride on and pushing! More bath toys, all construction theme. A few hand knitted sweaters from his Auntie Diedre in Ontario. A great gift certificate from Grandma and Grandad Springstead also in Ontario. Thus will be used to buy clothes since baby oops, toddler is growing like a weed! Thankyou!

A few books. Also Auntie Katie made a scrapbook of babies first year! It is awsome! So many cute pictures, a great idea Kate. This encourages me to get to work on my scrapbook!

Also Uncle Devona and Auntie Kim made a rocking horse out of wood, almost finished but looks great, a hit with all the babies.

Cake covered faces and two sleeping babies ended the party. A great time was had by all, here are a few pictures of the great even.

Thankyou everyone for comming and thankyou to the far away family for sharing in the celebration. We will see you guys soon!

The Amazing Baby

Our baby has E.S.P or something similar. He can be completely asleep, mouth hanging open asleep. If you lay him down anywhere other then our bed he wakes up and cries! This does not bode well for getting baby in his own bed! Then when I leave the bed in the morning to have a very grown up coffee, he sleeps like an angel until I wake him up at 8. I think what he is saying is, I love mommy and daddy's bed, more comfortable if I am the only one in it! Hint, Hint!
