5 tickets for Canada!!! Yay! We will be in the 'Nish from Feb 3 to Mar 3, Matthieu will go back on the 17th. He rented a 4x4 for the time he's there and spent more time researching and reserving that than the plane tickets themselves. Snow here we come, please, please let there be snow!!
Lots to update... We went to the zoo today and the boys were angels!! We went out to eat first and they actually ate, they sat there like normal children (what does that mean anyway? normal?) and when the food came, they ate it. The only problem being in a restaurant alone with three little ones was when Anthony had to go to the bathroom. I persuaded him to hold it, phew!!
I got my hair cut. I sucked it up and went back to zebra lady. She really is the ONLY one here that has ever cut my hair right. It's thick and curly and every other place, I would leave with triangle head!! She makes faces when she cuts... and I've noticed the more faces she makes, the happier I am when I leave. I can't remember her making faces when she gave me the highlights but she made a tonne the other day and I am so happy with my hair!
I finished sewing for now, I'll do the girls' princess dresses a bit later. We have our costume party early Dec so I have time. Let's hope Dean's costume makes it to Halifax on time though, and Nicole will not have to make a mad dash to the store on Halloween day to weed through what's left trying to find something cute in his size!!
I had a huge headache last night so I vegged out and watched TV. It sucks because the end of the month is nearing and I'm only half way through my Flair stuff for the month. I haven't scrapped in ages and for me it's not like riding a bike, LOL, the mojo takes some time to come back, so I scraplifted and it seems to be back enough to get my Flair stuff done :)
He's been so sweet lately, even more than usual. He did the dishes last night, unloaded and loaded the dishwasher for me! He even sorted the silverware as he put it in the dishwasher (yah, I know, I'm a bit anal, LOL). He keeps talking about his car, hoping for a Trailblazer...
The boys are on their fall break now. Jacques has been so sweet. It's funny, he learned the word 'cheat' in English lately (he's always used the French one until now). But, when he says it sometimes he gets the consonants mixed up and will say teach instead! Today in the car, he sad that truck and airplane were the same word. Hmmm, I was totally confused and told him they weren't. He said that Jeanne-Marie said they were. She is his speach therapist who helps with language and grammar and his accent etc. He was there yesterday and they worked on rhyming words. Avion (airplane) and camion (truck) do rhyme in French! gotcha Bud, he usually does have some thing behind these weird statements!!
He's in great shape, and has been ever since his attack, but he is being a bit of a terror these days. We're not sure what's up, but we're sure he's just testing us. I think it has a lot to do with his sleep patterns. I'm hoping once the time goes back, he'll be more settled and be able to sleep better. Like I said though he was an angel today!
He is still not walking, he just shows no real interest in it. He has taken up to 6 steps at a time, but really prefers crawling. I had a little pep talk with him. Amber thinks he has been waiting for Georgia to start walking, and I told him that she is now walking very well, but he doesn't seem to want to follow her footsteps for the moment. I'm ok with that, I guess. He's such a cautious guy, I guess he needs to build up his courage.
He also is finally saying my name, 'ma' to be exact. He's such a tease though. Sometimes when I ask him to say it he'll say daddy, sounds like duh-dee. Little stinker. He's more intereactive and loves to play peek-a-boo and blow kisses and wave at himself in the mirror. He just won't do these things when I have the camera out! Speaking of the camera, I tried to take our Christmas photo yesterday, by miracle the boys were wearing clothes that matched each other and the cards I want, but Pheeps was not cooperating. sigh... I still have 2 months right?
We are going away tomorrow until Wednesday. Sunday is MIL's family all souls day dinner. Only they are not having it on all souls day this year???? It would have been nice if they did because we have a birthday party Halloween night and really close by and both places are over 300km away from here. We are going here inbetween and I couldn't be happier about it. I LOVE this place and it's really starting to become a All souls day tradition. When we told the boys were were going Jacques started rhyming off all the things we did last year, even that he found a teeny crab in with his shrimp! Scrap ac' girls, I've got your prizes, I'm hoping to get them packed up and mailed to those not going to SAG once we get home next week. I think I have everyone's addies, if not I'll hound you for them next week!!
