Love this picture of Jarret and Amy.. she was only 14 months old and he was 3!! I cant believe how fast they grow. This Christmas will be a lot different. She will get more involved and he REALLY knows what its all about. Just wanted to share this picture. Soooo cute.

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!!!

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!!!!

Don't laugh.. I never know what to ask...
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???

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!!

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.

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 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??

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!!

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.
