A picture is worth a thousand words...

Its another rainy day here in Chilliwack. All of the laundry is done, the bathroom has been cleaned, the dishes have been washed & put away, the floor has been swept, the garbage has been taken out and Callie is sleeping, so I thought I'd share a few pictures from the last week or two.
Having some fun with the iPod camera...

Backyard fun...




Enjoying a walk at the river on a sunny day...


Posing for Mommy...



Complete & utter delight...


We've been pulling out stuff to sell on Craigslist.
Callie doesn't seem to be ready to part with her baby bathtub... :)

Callie went to her first 'friend' birthday party on Saturday. Norah turned 3!
I thought the kids looked so sweet sitting at the table, waiting for their dinner. :)

Happy 1st Birthday Elijah!

We celebrated my nephew Elijah's 1st birthday today. Hard to believe that a year has gone by already!

So, in celebration of Eli's birthday, I thought I'd share a video of Callie's rendition of "Happy Birthday" with you.... as well as a few pictures from today's party. (*Note: Sorry for the poor quality pictures. Jon is away for the weekend & has our camera so I had to use my iPod to capture the birthday action.)
Enjoy! :)

Me & the birthday boy


Getting ready to blow out his candle

Callie & Grampa

Mmmm.... first bite of cake

Opening presents...
(Callie was right in there like a dirty shirt!)

I think Callie was more excited about Eli's gifts than he was... :)
Happy Birthday Eli! We love you SOOOO much!

Unintentional hiatus...

I kind of miss blogging.
But what I miss even more is having spare time.
Life is BUSY beyond description these days and its been hard to keep up.
So, as much as I would love to write a big, long blog post right now, all I have energy for is sharing a few pictures and possibly throwing in the odd caption here and there.
Sorry folks, but its all I've got right now :)
I do plan to keep up with this blog more frequently once we leave for Thailand because for some, it will be the only way of knowing what's going on in our lives. (Speaking of which... if you don't already receive our monthly email newsletters and would like to, please just let me know and I'll add you to our list. All I need is your email address!)

Anyway... without further ado.... my picture post...

Trying on another dress we got in Thailand last year...

Watching Curious George from her 'perch'...

We got to have a reunion supper with some of our MTE friends last month...
... it was awesome to reconnect again!

She's not too fond of the vacuum so this is where she "hid"... :)

My latest hair-chopping...

Out for date night at good ol' Billy McHale's...

Callie let Auntie Naomi put her hair in pigtails the other night.
And by "let" I mean, she stopped crying fairly quickly afterward.
Definitely not too keen on having her hair done,
as you can see from her sad little face. :)
But she looks sooooo cute...

Morning meeting with the Doodlebops...

All tuckered out from a morning at Costco...

Trying out Grandpa E's 4-wheeler...

Like daddy, like daughter...

Playing with Mommy's iPod...
So, until next time...
