Happy 2nd Birthday Tin Tin!

Category: Journal

Well our baby is now 2 years old.  I can hardly believe it!  Seems like we spent a whole week celebrating Tristan's birthday.  It was so much fun watching him open presents and getting excited.  

First we celebrated Tristan's 2nd birthday and Annika's 3rd birthday together with my parents and Daralynn and Sheldon.  The kids might not want to celebrate together when they're older, but for now it sure was fun.  Even Rhys got gifts!  Annika's favorite gift was the Doodlebops video Tristan got her.  She kept walking around with it smiling and saying "bops".  It was really sweet.  Tristan was a big fan of his tricycle.  He's not quite big enough for it yet, but he sure loves it.  For now it's on our deck and he goes out there every couple of days and cleans it with a spray bottle of water and cloth.  Anyone who's ever been in Dad Mack's boat will agree that Tristan is definitly a Mack.

A few days later we had a birthday for Tristan on the Mack side.  Tristan's favorite part was the Happy Birthday song.  Every time we'd sing he'd say "again" and we would sing it again for him.  Finally he started trying to sing it himself.  Tim and Tyler got Tristan a dump truck that he can ride.  He sure loves it.  He goes all over the house with it, and even uses it to clean up his books as he gets frustrated carrying them cause they get too heavy.

That's been the big event in our life lately.  We have been really busy – Troy's been working a lot of extra hours these days so the time we have together as a family we've really been cherishing and doing special things.  We've had lots of outings to the park and a couple walks downtown.  We went up to the koi farm one day and took a few pics.

The boys are doing really well and are starting to be buddies as much as you can expect them to at this age.  Tristan is constantly asking for Rhys to be with him – whether it's on his little couch or in his bed.  Rhys is starting to giggle when Tristan jumps around him – which of course encourages Tristan to perform for him.  They are making my life a little easier by interacting with eachother.  I hope they continue to be good friends for the years to come!

Time flies

Category: Journal

Wow it is soo crazy but time passes by so fast around here. Between work, play, kids new position and everything else in-between thing just get crazy. This is very evident in the fact that I never seem to be able to get around to updating this blog. 

Well aside from everything being so crazy around here things have been pretty good aside from the added stress I have from work. We have been doing a lot of new things and well the work load is a little insane right now. Hopefully we will come back to some level of sanity soon. 

Okay so let me see what has all gone one around here. Well I have been trying to make good use of being able to go out with my parents early Saturday mornings and water skiing. Mostly it has been barefooting, surfing and wakeboarding for me. I have to say it has been a lot of fun and is really relaxing to just even be on the water no matter how early or cold the mornings are. And Naomi has been so generous to allow me to go out. Thanks babe! Here are some great pics of thoose days and and awesome one of Tyler wakeboarding.

We have been making great use of our new deck. Tristan loves to eat berries out there in the evenging and well Rhys just likes to sleep as usually, although lately he is one smiley kid and is getting the nickname of smiley. We did manage to get an awesome night out on the deck having ice cream cake and Mackitos (mojitos) for my mother in law's 60th B-day.

One really cool thing I did get to do was help out Ginny with the party she planned for a client of her's. This was no ordinary party as the budget was very high and man wow did she ever do an awesome job. Anyways more to the point she hired me to do henna tattoos for the party and it was a great time especially as it was my first job doing it. I have to say was very happy with the results and would love to do it again some time. Especially as it is good money and I could use some extra to buy a new computer. I only got these few pics of the tattoos and of course of my main man Craig as he was the DJ for the event.
