Luca Mini Golfing


We had a great time in Nanaimo! I can't believe it is over and we are back to work hard to get motivated!

The boys were really good on the drive. We had it well broken up on the way there so it wasn't too tough. They loved the ferry ride and the house we rented was perfect for us. We swam in the pool, soaked in the hot tub. waded in the ocean, had a day in Victoria and RELAXED! It was a perfect family vacation!

A Visit from the Tooth Fairy

I received a phone call from a very excited little boy yesterday.

" know that loose tooth I had????? It fell OUT!!!"

OMG he was excited! He was feeling sorry for Connor (babysitters 5 year old) cause he was upset his teeth weren't falling too. So Carter told me he wanted to give his next tooth to Connor so he could "get money too".

I had no clue what the going rate for a tooth was these days so I asked the question on a parenting website I visit ( and boy the tooth fairy is very generous is some families! Some said as high as $50 for the 1st tooth, some said $10 to $20 for the 1st tooth, some said $2-5. Well, the cheapos we are we left a twoonie and he has never been happier! He was so excited he couldn't wait to put it in the piggy bank.

We leave for holidays on Friday and I am exhausted from being up too late every night getting ready, making lists, and thinking about too many details. It is a lot of work to get ready to relax!

Our newest addition....

Isn't she cute!! We finally broke down and traded in the Taurus (aka Lazy Boy on wheels) and purchased this sweet little 2007 Honda Fit 5 speed. It is the perfect car for Joel to take to and from work everyday. We use my company vehicle and its free gas for virtually everything so we really didn't need two large vehicles. This one is so fun to drive!
