ELAN Winner

Category: Journal

I am back in town now as of yesterdays blitz trip from Vancouver and the Elan Awards. I am proud to say that the DS game won! Way to go team!!

 

Overall the evenging was fun and well interesting. It is always strange to be in a room full of people you don't know at all and be all dressed up to boot. The event it's self could use a lot more polish and better planning to really truly make it a great event. The awards themselves are very young and so who knows where they will go.

Of course the one big highlight of the evening was meeting Tom Kenny (aka voice of spongebob).

It was fun to hang out in Van even though it was incrediably short, and of course it is good to be home again with my family.

It’s Spring I Think?

Category: Journal

Wow it is spring already well at least we think it is. The weekend and today were really the only few days that gave any tell all signs that it is. Since it is finally spring it is probabl;y time for a post, yes we are still here and doing well. The boys and everything else have kept us so busy that we just don't get on the computer much lately nor really have the motivation to post being so tired at the end of the day.

THe biggest thing that has happend around here lately is the building of our new retaining wall. I have been wanting to build it for some time now and started digging out the area in the fall but ran out of time before the snow and cold kicked in. With the weather finally turning around here and wanting to get to it before it gets warm i took a few days off and 4 days built this little wall. Boy was that four tiring days and I am sure glad it is done. Now the boys are less likey to fall into the garden. Here are some before and after shots.

Now when i say it is hard to tell if it is spring around here i really mean it. Last Wednesday I picked up some cedars for a hedge on top of the wall and wouldn't you know it as they sat there in my driveway over night it snowed. Snow on April 2nd! What kind of crazy country do we live in??

The boys have been of course growing fast and are more and more fun each day. Tristan loves being back out in the yard and "helping" daddy, and it has been great to spend some quality time with him and still get some yard work done. Rhys has been lot of work lately as he just never seems to be put down but when he is down he crawls like crazy and is into everything!! He is now starting to stand and soon should be off and running, yikes! Rhys has also discovered the joys of feeding himself and really now wants nothing to do with you feeding him "mush".

Well that is if for now just a small update. I really haven't even taken many pictures lately, so will have to change that before the kids are in college.
