New Hair

I have hair that grows faster than weeds, and is thicker than brush... Honestly my hair dresser always tells me he is amazed by how much hair I have... Today I had about half of it on the floor after a much needed hair cut.

He said the cut would make my eyes stand out even more, but I think he might have overdone it!!

Maybe the hair cut will make me actually DO my hair - though I highly doubt it!

So not only have the girls taken to blackberries... CHARLOTTE has taken to the "earth"
Sunday we were outside playing in the grass and digging in the flower bed and Charlotte keep eating the dirt by the handfuls!  Not only did she like the dirt, she was licking it off the little shovel she had in her hand.  I tried to stop her but I guess she just found it way too delicious!  Today, I could not keep her from eating - well not eating, LICKING my shoes... my slippers, my flip-flops!  Oh what an odd little girl!

What is the worst thing you, or your kids have eaten????

We love blackberries

The twins had blackberries for the first time today and if you can't tell from the photos, they LOVED them. They actually ate an entire container of them... these girls can eat and our grocery bill certainly proves it..

RUBY showing here total love and showing off her many teeth!

Put your hand up if you love blackberries Charlotte

It still seems a little overwhelming some days that I will no longer be going back to the office that I have been calling work for the last 13 years ever again as an employee.  I would like to say that I went out with a bang and we had a big office party and everyone came to wish me good luck and I got a cake that said thank you and good luck, but lets be honest.... I worked for Air Canada for 13 years, not Google!

NO, I signed a piece of paper, and handed in three key items!
1.  My headset
2. My ID card
3. My health cards

After that... I went back to my desk to finish out my LAST shift with Air Canada.  It was a brutal one with the Volcano causing my last day to be more of a headache than it should ever have been.  Did I work hard???  No, actually I did not for one of the first times, I really did not care!

When it came time for management to leave (I was working in the afternoon) NOT ONE of them came over to wish me good luck and to thank me for 13 hard working years.... NOTHING.  Someone asked me if I maybe did not know them very well, but all of them have been there the entire time I have and most of them I used to work with on the floor...


THANK YOU for the opportunity to fly around the world and see amazing things and meet some amazing people... Thank you for a pay cheque for 13 years and some great new friends, but honestly, did you have to hit me in the butt with the door on my way out????

1.  Ruby figuring out how to go up and DOWN the stairs.  Though the fact that she turns around to go down the stairs a couple feet before the actual stairs is what makes me laugh.. (Charlotte still looks at her with amazement she does it alone)

2.  Charlotte desperately trying to take her first step

3.  Charlotte and Ruby laughing their heads off while they push each other in their little wagon.

4.  ONE more week of my Full time job left.

5.  The wonderful scent of Scentsy Hemingway floating throughout our home


7.  3 pounds lost this week

8.  The girls constantly saying UH-OH when they pick up something and drop it.. SO CUTE!

9.  My Husband coming home Friday night... I so missed him.

10. Emmy and Finley staying strong....

What made you HAPPY this week????

The girls are SO HAPPY to have Mommy and Daddy home for three solid days with out either of us having to be anywhere.

We have had lovely weather so we took the girls outside to try out their new wagon!  Lucky for me Toys R Us was having a sale and we still have "mall money" left over from a gift, so we got a wagon for little out of our immediate pockets!  We called it their Easter Gift, but really they needed a wagon anyway, and we are not ones to give big Easter Gifts (in fact we did not even do any chocolate eggs or anything this year - honestly they are one - they don't need a chocolate bunny on the foot of their bed that mommy or daddy would end up eating anyway!)

They LOVE their wagon....

Lately the girls are trying to walk more and push things around walking - So to provide hours of fun they have each other to push around...
