Halloween Party!

Corrina had the great idea of coming up to Duncan to go to the BC Forestry Discovery Center and go on there spooky train ride. It was such a great idea it became a party :)

Here we are in the parking lot putting on last minute costumes. Yes, the monkey dressed as Michael Jackson is Mike :)

awwww Mike made Lyla's costume and it's sooooo cute!

Monkey Owen. Isn't every costume that much better with a monkey mask on? Haha we think so :)

Feeling Good/Sore

On Tuesday Morning I got the most pleasant email from the Bakers. Corrina had given birth to there second child. They had a baby boy :) In the email they said she was available for visitors in the hospital after 11am. I was going to Victoria that night to do a norwex presentation and so I called Mike "Hunny! I need to drive to Victoria as soon as you get home from work!" He didn't mind at all :) I got to meet Logan Anders(not sure how to spell middle name) Baker. I am still on a high from what a wonderful experience it was to spend time with my good friends and celebrating there new son. I miss you Baker family!

After our visit I did my presentation. I must say that going to my norwex meetings have helped me so much! I feel so much more confident. I have shortened and improved my presentation a lot. When the show was over and ladies were leaving a few mentioned how much fun they had, and how much they learned. That was my goal! I am so grateful to my friend for hosting :)

So this morning when I was getting the order into the computer Owen wanted me to use our computer mouse that had the dead batteries in them. I said "No thank you" many times trying to explain to him why i'm using the old mouse, but he wasn't satisfied so he throw it at my head. Yep. I burst into tears and got a nice lump on my cheek. I didn't yell(something I'm working on). I just picked him up and put him in his room. He has said sorry to me many times today and I forgive him :) He is my wonderful little Owen, and I understand how frustrating it can be when mom doesn't listen.

Something I am very excited about is going to the temple this Saturday! Ruban and Faith Rebalkin our dear friends are being sealed in the temple with there daughter Myrtle. Mike and I get to help watch Myrtle :) Can it be Saturday already?! I want to have a day long date with Mike now please :)

This week

Owen got a hair cut this morning. He clearly did not want his picture taken at this moment :)

The desperate measures of a parent, to cut there 2 year olds hair. We have the flowbee so no hair touches Owen. The video glasses so he can watch a mickey mouse show with the ear phones in because of all the noise(the vacuum is hooked up to the flowbee). Owen actually did very good :)

Smiley girl! I can't believe she is 8 months now.

This is the picture I took on my 26th birthday. I forgot to put my lipstick on.

Fun outside!
Owen and Lyla love wagon rides!
Mike got us a bike so we can ride bikes with Owen.
