And we're off!

So I took this pic in Indian Head. Yuck! I seen an ecard on fb today and it went something like this: Its so cold out I could use my nipples to key someone's I'm not about to try it but it damn cold here! Kids have been travelling great. That's 99% of our battle right there. Hoping to get to outlook tonight, that would put us halfway.

Good night all!

How long will dishes be exciting?

Washing dishes with Grandma! Thought this picture was so cute, especially the little sawed off person in the middle. No way could she be left out!

Happy Birthday Brenda!

 Happy 57th Birthday to my Mother-in-law and Happy Birthday to Uncle Chuck! We celebrated on Thursday night due to her working schedule this wknd.
 We went from hardly any snow to full blown winter this wknd. Tanner went out to play and was a little frustrated because nothing would drive! He told me his bike, his wagon, his loader, his pusher (bulldozer) and his back hoe all would not drive! When will the snow be all gone Mommy? lol.........Hmm not for awhile my dear!

 My nephew Dallas! He is growing! He will be 4 weeks old on Wednesday. My Dad's birthday is on the 22nd so we had cake today since we are leaving for Alberta that day.
Hope you all had a safe and warm wknd! Have a great Monday!

Preg-checking mares

Sadly this is the last year the mares will be here. The in-laws have decided to sell them. The kids and I went out to enjoy the mild temperature today.

Birthday party!

Last night we had a small family birthday party for my mother-in-law, her birthday Is not till Sunday but she works evenings all weekend. Landen, Tanner and I made the cake. I tried a new frosting recipe, I think I'll post it yet. It was delicious. Other than that, I'm trying to catch up on laundry and think about packing fir our trip out west. We leave in a week.
Happy Friday!

Baby showers, crafts & hunting

It's been a busy wknd! I had a bunch of ladies over for a scentsy party, my hubby has been hunting any chance he gets! (he got one yesterday), and a baby shower for my little nephew, Dallas. I made a cute baby carriage cake. It did turn exactly how I wanted but still looked cute! 

Today I'm trying to keep the boys entertained with crafts. I'm promised them they could go out and play after lunch. Hopefully it's warmer then.

Five things

1. Lately my little boy is calling me 'Momma'. He has never called me that, usually just 'Mommy'. I don't know why the sudden change but I love it! ...except when he thinks he has to start every. single. sentence. with it all day long. Not sure if thinks it's cool or something? Ha.

2. It is amazing how uplifting sunshine can be. I'm dreading winter mostly for the cloudy, dreary days.

3. I'm really looking forward to getting away for a week soon! It means coffeeing (that is a word on my vocabulary fyi) all day long with my sister-in-law, cousins playing together all day long and me getting to raz the heck out of my brother-in-law!

4. I have an idea for a big blog post that I feel very strongly about, stay tuned.

5. I really want to pack two shoe boxes for kids less fortunate this year. This is something I'd like to make a Christmas tradition.


First hair-doo!

Good morning! I have lived in Manitoba all my life and I will never get used to the time change. We have not even moved the clocks yet but at 8am its still dark! Hard to believe it's November already! Anyways, have a great day. I love the sunrise.
