Catch Up

Its been a while so where do I start?

Lets see..

Amy turned 6 (cant believe my baby is 6!!) She asked for a heart shaped cake which George obliged. It turned out great!

Jarret had his 9th bday (umm.. I have a 9 year old.. when did that happen??) He sure acts like a 9 year old boy.. toilet humor is so funny to him.

I got a job! It is going very well. I am the Marketing Coordinator and Receptionist for a health benefit company. I am learning so much every day and actually enjoying a job. That has never really happened to me before. I have liked the people I work with in other jobs, but the actual job has always been so so. Things are good.

Halloween was of course a good time. Jarret went out as a Leafs Fan and Amy was a black cat. They looked cute.

Not too much happened just me trying to adjust to the new job and to our new routine.

The kids both got amazing report cards. This is Amy's first real report card for French Immerison and she is loving it, and her grades are awesome to show for it. Their parent teacher went very well too. Their teachers had nothing but nice things to say about them. They both have a few things to work on but nothing to worry about. So proud of both of my kiddos.

My dad is in for Christmas. He arrived on the 20th and is here until the new year. It has been very nice to have him here. The kids are getting to know their grandpa and he is getting to know his grandchildren.

When I found out my dad was coming for Christmas I wanted to put on a Ukrainian Christmas Eve dinner for him and was trying to find a Ukrainian store to buy what I needed. George stepped up and made home made perogies and sourkrought buns for my Ukrainian Christmas Eve dinner. He did such an amazing job on them. Delicious. What a good man I am married to.

We are heading to a Marlies game this afternoon, they are playing the Manitoba Moose so we will have some rivalry. Jarret always cheers for The Moose when they play Toronto, so him and Grandpa can sit together lol.

We went bowling last night. That was so much fun.

I go back to work tomorrow. It is going to be so hard to get back to the swing of things. George has been off since the 19th and doesn't need to go back until the new year.

I think I covered almost everything. I will try not to wait so long to post again. I never think anyone reads this, but apparently you do :).

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

Vegas .. finally..

Me on the monorail thingy at the airport, just landed as you can see I was very happy to be there.
Slot machines at the airport.. very cool
Me at Mandalay Bay.. if it looks like i was annoyed.. your right!! Long story lol
Inside Ceasars Palace.. awesome hotel!
Outside The Wynn.. my favorite hotel in Vegas so fancy
Hope George doesnt get mad..

Big ass slot machine..
Bellagio fountain.. amazing to see
Mirrors EVERYWHERE in our hotel room.. on the ceiling all over the walls..very funny..

Here are just a few pictures from our Vegas trip. I have a crap load more to post. We had an amazing time and we cant wait to go back.

The next few posts will be mostly pictures. I have alot from Winnipeg to put up as well.. you are warned..

Last week until school starts. I cant believe how fast this summer went by. It probably didnt help that we were childless for 5 weeks and just got back to TO. Amy is excited for grade 1 and Jarret says he isnt excited but I think he will be happy to see all his friends again.

Thats that for now..

So we went to Vegas and it was amazing. I will post some pictures later as I am not in Toronto I am in Winnipeg. I cant believe how fast that month went by with the kids out here. I was very happy to see them and I think they were happy to see me.

When I came down the escalators to see my kids I also saw my sister and her kids.. my brother and sister in law and their kids my mom and my gramma!! What a welcome I received!! I met my niece Anna and man is she beautiful!! She let me carry her around pretty much all day and she fell a sleep on me. She knows how to make her Auntie happy :)

Kelsey left that afternoon on her trip with her dad so unfortunately I only had a few hours with her which I am glad I did but I wish she was here longer.

Thats that for now.

I am off to get ready for the day..

The first week they stayed with Chris and Denise. This week they are with Char and Kenny.

I have talked to the kids every day since they have been gone. They are having a really good time. No time for being homesick which is great. I love they have this time to bond with their cousins. This trip was well needed.

George and I have been pretty busy since they left and he got back from his second business trip to Hawaii. It is strange without the kids around.. but I am so glad they are having so much fun.

My official last day of work is August 1st and i will be heading to Winnipeg for a 2 week visit and to bring the kids home August 21st. Cant wait for my visit with everyone.

Oh yeah.. George and I are going to Las Vegas on Saturday for a few days. I have holiday's next week. This will be our first trip together. No kidding. Very excited!!

Ok.. thats that..

My mom arrived last Wednesday, it is so nice to have her around. She is only here until Thursday and she is taking the kids with her back to Winnipeg. They are so looking forward to seeing their Aunts, Uncles, cousins, and Great Gramma!! They will be there until August. It will be so strange with no children around. I will definitely miss them!

I had an eye appointment on Saturday with a new eye doctor. She dilated my pupils to check the back of my eyes.. well she found 2 dots or spots or whatever on the back of my left eye and is referring me to an retina specialist to see if i will need laser surgery to prevent them from bursting. Little nervous about that.. but she said not to worry too much about it.. umm.. ok if you say so??

I go back to work today after a nice relaxing week off.

My coffee is ready and my stomach is growling.. so I am off..

The picture is from George's trip to Australia thought it was cute and had to throw it in

Splash Park fun with Amy

Yes i do have another child.. you wouldn't think that from the last few posts.. but in this situation Jarret decided that staying home with dad playing PS3 was a better idea (next time he will come with us). I let him have his way this time.

I am on holiday's this week. The kids last day of school is Wednesday.. and my mom comes in on Wednesday! Very excited.

George is heading back to Hawaii on July 1st to the 8th.. I will be without children (they will be in Winnipeg) and without husband for a few days.. whats a girl to do?
