Best Little Cartoon Ever

While it's still January

I thought I'd finally post quickly about Christmas and our visit to Dawson. Had a great time with J's family, his mom and bro came down for the Christmas week. The boys played squash, the girls played at Ikea, we all decorated our tree which ended up looking like Christmas threw up on it. But hey, that's the beauty, or so I'm told. We went to the Airdre Festival of Lights and took the obligatory photos:
Jeremiah and Carmen

Me and my niece who is looking very "special" in this photo and while she is undoubtedly special to me, she may hate us later in life...
We had tons of fun dancing, jumping on beds, making a gingerbread house, tormenting the cat, playing the new Barbie phone's ring over and over and over.

And of course the whole reason for the trip: my precious new nephew who I miss holding and snuggling. Great job P & T.

Traveling, traveling

So, my lovely husband has changed his mind again and decided that Bali is too far away and costs twice as much to get there so we should go to South America and spend the same amount but do more things. So, the decision process starts again. Guatemala, Venezuela, Brazil, Belize? Probably Belize, but really, all I care about is having a beach to hang out on and not being kidnapped or scared. I did purchase my backpack today, from MEC:
Isn't it pretty?

I took it home to play with and see how much stuff (shoes, books) I can fit in it comfortably.

We had a great weekend in Dawson visiting the chillens. Got to meet my new nephew, and I have to say, pretty darn cute. Besides he like never cries and snuggles really well; what more can you ask for?
