Kenny's Birthday

 We didn't get much for pictures on my birthday, too many people as we had gotten together for Easter at the same time, so I'm skipping on to Kenny's.

We let Kenny invite friends over this year.  We had 10 kids (including ours) whiche made for a busy 3 hours.  We had home made pizza and then let them burn off some energy.

After some crazyness in the basement and back yard we broke out the cake.

 Then we openned his presents.

It was a litte crowded as everyone wanted in close so they could see and sometimes touch.

 After opening this present Kenny said in a very low and flat voice "I always wanted one of these."  To me it sounded sarcastic.  It wasn't.

After opening presents Kenny started building some with his friends and a movie was put on. The kids played with and fought over the new toys until it was time to go home.

All in all a good party.

The boys worked with daddy to build the rest of the birthday gifts after the kids had left.

Phone Dump

My phone was getting crowded with pics and video, so I transferred them all to the computer and deleted most of them from my phone.  I was going to dump them on Facebook, but figured this way would be cleaner for all of your news feeds.


We took the kids outside to play in the sprinkler, but Hannah was too scared to actually get wet.  When we came back inside, she didn't want to waste being in her swimsuit, so she insisted on having a bath in it.

Last month, we went outside to play catch.  The boys aren't very experienced at this, but they're still young.  This video was Alex's turn (we only have one child-sized glove).  I'm using the glove that's older than I am that I've been using since I was a kid in Nova Scotia, and Rob and Dad used it before me.  My favourite part of the video is when Hannah pushes the slide across the background.

Hannah was being really cute, so I pulled out my phone to record her.  She noticed my phone and immediately stopped doing whatever it was she had been doing and tried to look at the screen.  It turned out to be pretty cute, too.

This video is from this morning.  After upsetting the top team in his Under 6 soccer league on Tuesday, Kenny and his team played the second game of their tournament this morning.  They played a good game, but ultimately lost by a score of 2-1.  He had a lot of fun, though, and that's what matters most.  He wears number 29 if you're looking for him in the video.


Hannah in October 2011.  She climbed in the tub on her own, so I took a picture.

Hannah and her cousin Matthew.  I believe this is at the Laqua's Thanksgiving dinner.
This is Alex and Hannah while we were decorating our Christmas tree.  It's a blurry picture, but I like it.
This is my mustache at the end of Movember.

And this is Avril at that same party.

Avril, whose hair had been long for quite some time, got her hair cut after work one day, and I made her drop by the motel to show me before she went home.
