:: This Last Week ::

:: OHMYGOODNESS!!! I must have been busy over the past month cause this was sitting in my "to be edited file" on blogger...ooopss! Must schedule in doing up a schedule of all the things we've been up to as of late! Better late than never I guess ;) ::

:: Monday ::

:: Cole's 3rd birthday was on Monday - we celebrated with our families in the evening. It was a great day, he was well aware that it was "MY Birfday" and we loved sharing in his excitement {more on his celebration later} ::

:: Tuesday ::

:: First thing {like 5 hours after we went to bed on Monday night} I was up and at 'em getting ready to head to Duncan for the day with the boys. We had yet to meet Paisley in person. So since my parents were going over for a couple days I figured we could park our car at the ferry and walk on with them, then return home later that night. So that is just what we did. Me coming over was also going to be a surprise to my SIL --- and I'm delighted to say we pulled off a great surprise. I showed up at Christy's MOPS group and surprised her. And truly, she was surprised! It was so great. So great to hug her, meet and cuddle Paisley and of course to be with Denay ::

:: My parents spent the afternoon with the kids so Christy and I could catch up. It was a great afternoon of coffee & shopping. This was Christy's first time out with out both the babies, so it was great break for her...and me ;) ::

:: Here are all 4 kids together, almost smiling - obviously God was with us ;) ::

:: Getting in my cuddles with sweet Paisley, she and I are really close to God, look how big our hair do's are ;) ::

:: Sweet Paisley - just being sweet! ::

:: Wednesday ::

:: Was a complete write off! It started off with bible study at church then a meeting with our pastor regarding our Christmas event @ church, then off to pick kids up from classes and home to re-group from the whirlwind trip to the island and all of Cole's birthday events, as well as to prepare for his class birthday the next day! Phew! ::

:: Thursday::

:: Was Mr. L's birthday! He turned 30 something, he get's his birthday off from work {as do all the employees} but decided to take it on the 12th of November as then he would have a 4 day long weekend since November 11th is a stat holiday ::

:: Jacob got to go hang out with Auntie Lisa, Emma & Zach while I went with Cole to school for party day. He was so stinkin' excited to have me at school, to have the class teddy bear home with him for the first time and to get something from the birthday box at school...all so SO exciting for my little guy! ::

:: Here is my little boy talking about the class teddy bear and his show 'n tell...he brought his leash, his leash that Grampy & Grammie bought him for his birthday as he loves anything with clips and the fact that it's expandible is just so much fun to him! ::

:: Here he is blowing out his candles for his class birthday cake {Don't worry that's not really cake, it's just a pretend cake} -- after that we enjoyed cupcakes that I made and then headed over to Aunties house to have a visit and lunch together ::

:: Later that afternoon I dropped the kids off to my parents place for them to have a sleep over {ahh, BLISS!} -- Mr. L met me at home and we got ready to go out to our favorite local restaurant for dinner - we both ordered steak and it was AWEsome! After dinner we headed to one of my personal favorite places to hang out; Starbucks! We both had a red cup of bliss and lovely conversation -- I decided to take pictures of each other. This is the order in which they were taken ::

:: mmmm, our lovely red cups of bliss ::

:: Mr. L being, Mr. L ;) ::

:: Me, being a dork ::

:: Mr. L commented that he couldn't get my "bump-it" in the picture - HA --- he knows that I don't have a bump-it, but I don't doubt that he was having issues getting all that mane in the photo ;) ::

:: And a somewhat normal shot of me :) - and yes, I was wearing white jeans with my black stiletto boots...in November, so sue me! ::

:: Friday ::

:: Wake up, pick up the boys from G&G's - take JJ to school, run some errands with Cole, return to pick up JJ from school, go home for lunch and naps, have a visit with a super sweet friend, make dinner, start making cake for super sweet friend, bathe&bed boys, and die on the couch at exactly 10:09 pm ::

:: Saturday ::

:: I wake at the crack of dawn {which is 5:54 am to me} start back on decorating the cake as it was due by 1pm that day ::

:: Here is the finished product of the 60th birthday cake - cute colors hey?!? I loved it and Mo did an absolutely fabulous job putting all the details for the party together ::

:: Later that afternoon I was off to a baby shower for a life long bestie that had a baby boy a few weeks ago. Malachi is a darling little warm bundle and I couldn't wait to celebrate with her & hold him! ::

:: Here we are, Lisa looks awesome and oh, that sweet boy, I could eat him right up! ::

:: Sunday ::

:: Our boys were up an hour earlier as we had turned our clocks back on Saturday night...which meant that at 4:45 am we were saying our good mornings...hmph. We headed off to church then ran a few errands, then home for brunch and naps. We all needed them but didn't all succeed at getting one. Around 3 pm we headed over the bridge to Mr. L's parents place to celebrate our birthdays {Cole's, Paul's & Mine} with his family ::

:: Here are Mr. L & Me with our cakes -- doesn't everybody need TWO cakes!?!? Ha! ::

:: Here is what our family photo looked like...I should have entered this one into RH photography's loony family photo contest! Look close, Mr. L is smoking a chocolate cigar from the top of the cake, JJ is pulling a "watchalookingat?" pose, Coley is saying "itwasn'tme!" and I'm oblivious to all the crazy antics the boys are up to! Ha Ha Ha! ::

:: Here is a close up of the chocolate cake -- It was oh so yummy and rich! Thanks Mum & Dad for hosting us for our birthday...lemme tell you, the talk of our household has been the train set at Nana & Papa's house, JJ told me today that he dreamed of going to your house to play with the train set last night - too cute! ::
