Happy 1st Birthday Emma!!

Its my beautiful nieces birthday today. She is a big ONE YEAR today. I cant believe how fast this year has gone by. Her big party is tomorrow and I cant wait. Hope you have a good day today Emma!! Love you lots. Hugs and Kisses!!

On another note.. George and I are starting our Christmas shopping today!!! We haven't even stepped into a store yet. I pretty much know what to get the kids. Amy is super easy whatever is pink and girly she will be happy with. Jarret said anything is good.. he had a few things in mind but really nothing that he really wants.. Whets up with that? He's the only 6 year old I know that doesn't have a "wish list". I guess that would make it easy on the wallet. That's it for now. Have a good one!!!

We are off to the doctors today for a follow up after Amy's allergic reaction from Monday. I have been a little nervous feeding her anything the last few days. I just don't know if she is allergic to anything else. We thought all was good with the nuts.. But boy were we wrong. It may just be a walnut allergy but just a little cautious now. I'm hoping we can get the allergy test done asap just because at Christmas a lot of food has different nuts in it.

So on another note.. George and I are heading to Saskatoon after Christmas because his sister is having a C Section and needs some help after the surgery. I cant believe that I actually got time off work to go. The schedule was already posted for the days I needed and considering its our busiest time of year too. But my TL is the best he did his thing.. Thanks Lance!!!!

Kelsey sent me a quiz so I thought it would be fun to do a short one..

Don't laugh.. I never know what to ask...
Yet another trip to Emergency with Amy.

Yes.. We again were at the emergency room with Amy. We were at WalMart picking up the kids pictures and *George was telling Amy to pull down her shirt. She was scratching herself on her belly. I bent down to see what was up and she had a bunch of white welts all over her. I thought that it looked like when she had chicken pocs. Then it was all over her neck and she was red all over. She was going crazy with the scratching. Earlier we were at *Georg's Aunts to see his cousins new baby. His Aunt has 2 cats and I thought she was having an allergic reaction to the cats. But my mom had a cat and she never reacted that way. Then *George realized that Amy had a bite of a cookie with Walnuts in them. Then I started to panic..(for those that don't know I DON'T handle emergencies well at all). So we decided we should get to the emergency room. She started to wheeze and cough. I was panicking.. And my poor Jarret started to panic. So George had a panicking 27 year old, a panicking 6 year old, and a 3 year old who was having an allergic reaction. We got to the Grace Hospital (because it is only about a 5 min drive) and they took her in right away. She had an Antihistamine shot in the arm then an Epi shot in her tummy. It took 3 pokes and George and I holding her down. The poor nurse got a kick in the face. Then she had Pediapred taken oraly. We got there at about 5:30pm and we couldn't leave until 10:00pm. They wanted her their for observation so she didn't have a relapse. My mom came at picked Jarret up and took him home. We left at about 10:15pm. We have to carry an Epipen with us at all times. I have one for my moms too. We also should have Benadryl on hand. Needless to say I have a very cranky girl on my hands this morning. She was up pretty early.

So that was our exciting trip to the Emergency Room. Anyone out there have nut allergies???

I babysat Jake last night and was he ever a good boy!! I got there and we made twaklate cookies, and watched Twee House for a bit. Then it was time for bed. So mister went and picked out his PJ's and I told him to pick out a book. So he picked out 2 books. I was good with that so we headed to his room for story time. Well, the books he picked out I think were the longest books that that child owns. I guess he figures its Auntie and she is a sucker so she will read them to me. And of course he's right. The first book was Cat In The Hat. It was pretty much word for word from the movie. That took us about 1/2 an hour. Half way through he said that this was a long story and only I know how to read it. We finally finished the book and I told him that that one was long enough and its time for bed. Nope.. Jake said "pweese Auntie" for the other book.. so you guessed it I read it. It was sooooo cute!! He gave me a BIG LONG hug and kiss and that was that.. he was ready for sleep. I didnt hear from him after! Such a good boy. I would babysit him again in a heart beat!!

Kelsey came home from her dance. She sat with me and chatted about her night.. I asked how the music was she said it was ok.. they played "old" music. I asked how old it was she said from 2000!! I thought that was cute. I told Char about the music and she said to think about it and 5 years ago Kelsey was 5!!! OMG.. thats crazy.

We put up our Christmas Tree today in our little house. It looks cute. The kids put their ornaments on and they are all on the bottom! This year Amy is very into it. I over heard her tell Jarret once it was done that she loves our tree. I am getting excited now for Christmas... Well gotta go have to work tonight. Jeff is sick and cant get out of bed so I have to get kids fed and pretty much get Amy in bed before I can go to work. So I am going to be rushed. Later!!

What do you think of my new header?? I think that is what it is called. The design with my blog name on it. *George did that for me. I LOVE it. The flower is from one of his pictures. Thanks *George!!!

I really don't know whats up with me this week. I have been so tired. I can't keep my eyes open most of the time. I need to sleep for more than 5 hours I think. I will have to have a sleep in day this weekend. My work schedule is all messed up this week. Because I took Monday off for *Georges Christmas Party I have to work Saturday. So now I will be working Saturday through Thursday. I hate not having 2 days off in a row. A day off here and a day off there really doesn't do it for me. I like my Fridays and Saturdays off. This next 2 weeks at work are going to be hell. Its going to get so busy. For those of you that don't know where I work I work at a call center taking Fedex calls. I track packages, schedule pick ups, do rates, deal with unreasonable people all night long. Its going to be especially bad during the holiday season. I take escalation calls after our managers desk closes in the evening and that can be crazy. I have had people call me all kinds of names because their cell phone is late or whatever the situation may be. Oh well its an honest living I guess.

I am going to be babysitting my nephew tonight. I think my niece is going to be sleeping at a friends house tonight so I probably wont see her. I am bringing some cookie dough for Jake and me tonight so we can bake!! Cant wait we are gonna have a good time. He is so funny. He makes me laugh every time I see him or when I am on the phone with my sister Char. He gets REALLY excited for things. He puts both hands over his mouth and kinda bends his knees and laughs!! When I know of something that gets him that excited I make sure I ask him about it a lot just so I can see him. I am getting very excited to spend some time with him tonight.

I've created a monster....

Every day Amy has to touch up her nail polish. The very first time I painted her nails she was not happy with me and I had to take it off immediately! Now I have to hide her polish because if she get ahold of it she will open it up and do it herself. The polish has to be purple. I have tried painting her nails with one of my colors but nope not good enough for her. She is such a girl. When she was little I thought she would be this tough tom boy just because of her size and how NOT dainty she was. Wow.. Was I wrong. She is the girliest 3 year old I have ever met.

I was checking out some other Blogs and realized I don't have many pictures on mine. I really need to start posting some pictures. I am still waiting for the pics from my Grandmas bday party. *Georges friend went to Toronto and borrowed our digital camera so I cant take any new pics for a few more days. But I will put a few up now from the summer. Of course of my kids what else do I have to take pics of?? I need to get out more!!

I am pretty excited for Friday, I am going to my sisters to watch her kids for the evening. Its her husbands work Christmas Party. I see my niece and Nephew quite a bit but I usually have my kids and my sister is coloring my hair. This time I am going by myself and will have some time one on one with Jake who is Amy's age and when he is in bed my niece Kelsey will be home from her dance and it will be our turn for some time together. Its funny how its time for me to get out of the house with out the kids (love my kids to death but sometimes you need that time away) even though I am going to a house with another 3 year old but its always different when they are not yours. I am going to apologize if the above sentences do not make sense. I took some pills with codeine in them for my migrain last night before bed and I am still a bit out of it. I read it over and I don't think it made sense but I really cant tell!! Man do I need sleep.

Jarret and Amy last winter.. They look the same this year!!

Jarret this summer..Such a cheese ball!!

Amy this summer.. Can she look any older??

It was *Georges work Christmas Party last night it was a good time. It was at the Tavern United that is right below his office. There was an open bar and a lot of food. I am not really a drinker but the drinks were going down like water!! I had a little too much I wasn't falling down drunk just feeling really good. The people he works with are great, so easy to get along with. My mom watched the kids for us.. She came here after work and took them to McDonalds for supper of course they liked that.

So I started my Pilates work out yesterday. I did it a few months back religiously for about 6 weeks and I noticed a big difference. I stopped when it got too hot in my house during the summer and now I am really going to concentrate on it now. My tummy is really soar today though.. I guess that's a good sign. Well I am off to do my Pilates!!

I wanted to show these cause my *George took them.. I think he is very talented these were taken last spring about 5 min from our house at Grants Old Mill. Just wanted to Share!!

So I said I wanted to do something "crazy" this weekend so I have something to talk about... Well when I went out with my friends last night I didn't get home until 4am!! OMG hey.. Really "crazy". LOL! Well that's crazy for me. I had such a good time. We had so much to catch up on. I don't know why I don't see those girls more often. Really silly. Life just gets too busy sometimes, but we should make time for our friends. Especially the friends you have had for a long time. I have been friends with these girls for about 14 years and actually my friend Jen and I have been friends since we were 5!! I realized how much I miss them. Maybe its the Christmas season that's making me all mushy I don't know and I don't care. I will definitely make more of an effort to keep in contact with them. Good times ladies.. Good times!!!

Every Saturday my niece Kelsey has a basketball game, and usually our entire family goes. Its our Saturday afternoon out. We look forward to it all week. They are an awesome team. She started playing in the spring and they were undefeted!! They ended up winning the City Championship!!! This year they are even stronger. They usually win with a score of like 54 to 2. Last week was their first lost. They played an amazing game and only lost by 1 point. So today Jarret, Amy and I went and they won! Kelsey played an awesome game and she got a basket. She is a really good player. I am very very proud of her. She is always sooo tired and red when the game is over because she plays so hard. I cant wait for next Saturday..
Good Playing Kels!!

I am getting together with my friends I haven't seen in such a long time. I cant wait. I moved to the other side of the city almost a year ago and its really hard to see everyone. It doesn't help that I work evenings and our schedules are usually opposite. Its going to be fun. I should get going cause its about a 45 min drive from my house to that end of the city. We are gathering at my moms. She is having food and drinks. She has always been good to my friends and she hasn't seen them in forever either.

Amy woke up this morning wheezing and coughing so I ended up taking her to the emergency room. She had 3 ventolin masks and some Pretnezone. She threw up all over me after she took Pretnezone... Poor kid. She is sleeping now. I will see how she's feeling after she wakes up but she is usually ok once she gets the masks and the meds. What a crazy day. I am a little tired but this is my last day of work for 2 days so it shouldn't be so bad. Nothing else to report. My life seems to be pretty boring lately.. I should do something crazy this weekend so I have something to talk about. Have a good one!!
