Happy Halloween

I want to thank Jocelyn and Doug for the awesome photo's of Halloween. While the kids were having fun trick or treating, I was having fun in Las Vegas.
I hope you all enjoy the pictures.

Ava as a beautiful butterfly, she now likes to wear the hat for bed.

Back in Action!!!!

It has been over a year since my last post. I felt it was time to get connected. It has been a little hard as both of our computers at home have died. My laptop I think just needs a new power cord. I keep forgetting to take it in and get checked out.
I hope everyone is doing well. We have had a fairly busy year. Garth coached high school hockey, and is now on to both high school and community girls ball. Kolton and Jayden are in Soccer, Ava is still as cute as ever and has fit very well into her roll as boss. I have not done much, for those of you who don't know I am working in Carman now for Provincial and Federal funding program called ARDI. It is less challenging then the clinics but is great. I love not having to commute to Winnipeg but I miss having sleepovers with Jocelyn.

Here is a picture of Ava and I at Christmas last year. I promise to update the blog on a regular basis.

Ava has 2 teeth!!!!!

We are proud to announce the arrival of two front teeth for Ava. They are so cute! It is hard to believe that this will be our last first tooth experience. While Ava's teeth are coming in, Kolton believes his are getting loose. Although they feel quite firm to me still.
Ava has been much happier now that she is feeling better, which makes my life a lot easier. The boys are both doing great although Kolton has a very sore throat right now so I am hoping he is not getting strep or something like that.
Jayden is as cute as ever in his new glasses. He is also the teenager of the house, Garth was waking him up this morning for nursery school and he rolled over and stated "I don't want to go to school" so it already begins. Mostly he was concerned about getting out of bed.
I hope everyone else is doing great.
We love you all!!

Hello Everyone,

I am so sorry I have taken forever to update the blog. Garth's computer died, not to mention with all the pictures on it. Anyhow we are now back online with my good old faithful laptop. We have been really busy the last month as I have returned to the work force taking a new job in Winkler. Much closer to home however sometimes I miss the clinics. I am helping in the HR area with my new job, which get this is a flax seed company. I didn't in a thousand years imagine I would be working in that area. Anyhow things are going well.
Today on the other had has been a rough day, Ava is sick with a bad fever and ear infection. I had to stay home from work as their was no way I was going to send her to daycare. It made me miss being at home but that is life.
The boys are all doing great. We have gotten both Kolton and Jayden in soccor starting May 5th. I can't wait to watch.
Garth has been extremely busy with all his coaching, but at least he is enjoying it.
Any how once again I am so sorry it took so long and hopefully I will post some pictures soon.
I love you all.

Ava Jumping Jolly and Kolton's Birthday

Hello Everyone,
Well I officially fail at keeping this blog updated. I have been busy, ok that is a lie I have been lazy. We are all doing well. Kolton had a wonderful 6th birthday. I can't believe he is already six years old. Time fly's by when you have kids. We had a busy weekend with Birthday parties.
We had all the family over on Saturday to watch Kolton's hockey game then come over. Kolton put on a star performance at his hockey game scoring 2 goals and playing his heart out. It was pretty excited that everyone was there to watch him. On Sunday we had his kids party, 3 hours with 11 kids counting Jayden and Kolton. I guess I should count Ava as well so that would make 12. They were all wonderful, we had so much fun.

Here is a video of Ava trying her jolly jumper for the first time. She has now mastered it and it is so cute to watch her use both legs and jump. The boys love to watch and play with her.
I hope this worked. Have a good night and I will type more later I promise.
Love you all.
