I forget that Jarret is 8 sometimes. I will admit I baby him when it comes to certain things.. like chores for example. He takes out the garbage.. and thats about it. George asked me the other day when could Jarret start helping out with dishes. I said not now.. and brushed that question off. I guess its been mulling around in my head since.. and yesterday I thought it was time to show him how to do them.

He said he liked doing it, but told me he thinks he should get an allowance. We agreed that if he does some chores around the house then yes.. he can get an allowance. He seems to think that every time he does dishes he should get $2, and taking out the garbage is worth $1. Does this sound fair? I honestly have no idea..

Anyway.. he was very cute doing the dishes yesterday. We'll see how long he likes doing them.

It was killing me all day yesterday that I couldn't post about my new niece Anna Mae. I was waiting for Chris to post first of course.

She is beautiful. I can not wait to hold her. I had to put a picture of her leg.. too cute.

Congrats you guys!!!

New post..

Ok.. so it has been a while. Not too much happening around here.. hence no new post. I guess I can start with saying how incredibly sad that we lost Archie last week. The funeral was yesterday and I am so sorry for their family and everyone who loved him! I am also sorry I couldnt come out for the funeral. I keep thinking about all the good times we had growing up with that family. That makes me sad.. it should make me happy.. but not right now.

On the weekend I bought my self some boots. Not Uggs exactly because I am not shelling out $250 for boots thank you very much.. but the same type of boots but different "brand" they look EXACTLY like the real thing. They are comfy and actually cute. They are kind of like my Crocs issue.. where i think they are ugly but like them anyway... make any sense??

George won Leaf Tickets yesterday so the two of us went. It was my first Leafs game I was pretty excited to see my boys live.. they actually won.. so that was a bonus.

ummm..... so yeah.. thats pretty much it. Sorry nothing is coming to me here.. I will hopefully have something to post soon.. plus i am pretty rushed i have to leave for work in about 45 min and George is sleeping on the couch and I am on here not ready .. need to shower and get the hell out of the house.

Bday pictures

So it was my bday on Saturday and here are a few pictures from that night. George and I left the kids behind and had a "grown up" night out. Let me tell you.. it was nice. I forgot how much fun it is to go out and not worry about if all the chicken fingers will be eaten .. or if anyone has to go potty before the food gets t0 the table. We met up with some friends.. I believe I am still trying to catch up on my sleep from that night ;)

Thats that...

Happy 13th birthday Kelsey

I woke up this morning thinking its Kelsey's 13th birthday today..I am going to get up and put a birthday post on my blog. Well.. looking through pictures of miss Kelsey I ended up sitting here with tears in my eyes thinking about this wonderful niece I have.

She is an amazing person. We had so much fun with her the two weeks she was here this past summer. She fit right in with us. My kids adore her. Amy told me the other day that she wants to be 12 because Kelsey is 12. Plain and simple.

So have a wonderful day Kelsey.. I wish with all my heart I was there to celebrate with you!!

Lots and lots of love from Auntie, Uncle George, Jarret and Amy!!!
