Well, it's been a long while since I've blogged, so here are tonnes of pictures for those of you who don't view my stuff on facebook(lots and lots of pictures on there!). Baby Koen finally arrived April 7th @ 3:48 pm. He weighed 8lbs 4oz and was 19 1/2 inches long. He is such a calm baby. We all are enjoying him very much!!

Okay, I'm officially the worst blogger EVER!

My apologies for not updating this thing! I just kinda forgot about it. But, hopefully I'm back on the blogging wagon. I've got a little note by my computer that will hopefully remind me to log on here at least once in a blue moon.
Much has happened since my last blog. As you all probably know anyway.... I'M PREGNANT!! AND..... IT'S A BOY!!! Woooo hoooo! We are super excited. I also feel complete. Satisfied is a better word maybe. I am truly ready to shut down the baby factory after this one arrives. Steve and I will both be getting fixed (whether he likes it or not) because I figure if I have to do it, then he has to too. We have decided on the name Koen William Burrows (i'm pretty sure). If we find the "ultimate" name then it will change of course, but for now Koen is the only name we both have agreed on. He is due to arrive April 1st or so.

What else has happened since my last entry in July? Hmmmm...
We went to Mica Dam in Revelstoke, and went to Vancouver again in August. It was a very enjoyable vacation!

Oh and the kids all went back to school in September. That was exciting. They all have GREAT teachers (hooray!) and Makenna is doing a fantastic job in kindergarten. They're all doing well actually! JP is a great reader/speller and Mayanne is a great reader/writer.
Halloween of course was a blast as always. I absolutely love dressing all my babies up. Mayanne was a "geeky" version of herself, JP was a pirate and Makenna was a butterfly/fairy. I too was a butterfly. So much fun!

Fathers Day Fishing

We decided to go fishing up at Marshall lake last minute on Fathers Day. We had so much fun! It was a little cold and wet, but we still had a great time. I think the dog had more fun than anyone though. Thanks for taking us Daddy! We all think you're the greatest ever!

Makenna and daddy went camping. Mom, Annie and JP in Vancouver

Okay, I'll start off by saying SOOOOOO SORRY it's taken me forever to post anything on here. I've actually got a whole bunch of drafts on the go from the last few months, but my camera's been broken and I haven't been able to post pictures. So FINALLY I have a new camera and things will be on a roll here.
On the may long weekend Makenna went camping with Daddy and I went to Vancouver with the other two. Makenna caught her very 1st fish! I bet it was the cutest moment ever. I'm sorry I missed it. However, I got to see a totally precious moment when we were in Vancouver. JP got to visit the ocean for the 1st time (that he can remember) and it was so adorable. He was facinated by EVERYTHING on the beach. We came home with quite the collection. Unfortunately I hadn't bought the new camera yet, and missed taking pictures at the beach.

Our visit to a Sushi Restaurant was quite interesting too. JP lost his tooth! Uncle Jonas loosened it with chopsticks and then JP pulled it out.

We also were givin some live crabs to play with at the table. That was cool too. JP is such a sushi boy!

Well, after LOTS and LOTS of hardwork, The Music Man production is done! We started working on it in October 2006, and just finished doing 7 fabulous shows. I didn't want to be the leading lady(Marian Paroo) at first, and was cursing about it for months. But, after all is said and done, I'm really glad and proud that I took the role. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I think I did a pretty good job. Mayanne did an EXCELLENT job at being Gracie Shinn. I love having the community theatre as something her and I do together. We'll be doing this forever together I think. I'll be on stage until I'm 75 I'm sure. I hope that those of you who live here in Grand Forks who are reading this will consider coming out to be in the next production we do. If you really really don't want to be in one, then please consider donating a little bit of your time to help out with things like costuming, painting sets, getting props, makeup, hair, advertising... It takes a hundred people to make these things a go.
Thanks to everyone who supported the Music Man production!

I'll be adding more pictures as I receive them from people! Only have the 2 for now...

Stupid decision I know it...

So Steve went to pick up what he thought was going to be a 1990 oldsmobile. When he got there he was SHOCKED to find out it was a 2000. Our orginal plan was to sell the "1990" olds, the red mazda, and the van and then put the $ towards something decent. But NOW, we've got this super nice car that only has 35,000 kms on it and still smells new even though it's 7 years old. We'd never get what it's worth if we sold it, so we've decided to keep it. The only problem is that it's a 5 seater. I really really wanted the space of a van. So, we're going to sell the van, trailer, red mazda and the black mazda. Steve is stuck on getting a stupid truck. I think it's the dumbest decision ever. He got his own way, we're keeping the car selling everything else, and getting him a freakin' truck. At least he agreed to sell the trailer, because we both know we could NEVER afford a truck that would tow it with no problems.
Nice 17ft travel trailer $2000 -SOLD
Old 1990 Red Mazda 323 that runs quite well $1000
1991 Black Mazda Protege $3000? I think that's what steve said. Great condition
1994 Ford Aerostar XL extend van. $2500 Needs minor work, runs well. -SOLD
WANTED: Decent Truck, short box, the more it seats the better. Between $4000 and $6000.
Anyway, we'll see how it goes. If the car really isn't working out space wise, then I'll sell it and get a van.
