Our girls at birth

Here is a comparison of Ally and Zoe at birth.  The pictures aren't the best but you still can see the similarities.  It will be neat to see how similar they are as they grow up.  So far it looks like Ally has Mike's coloring and Zoe may have mine.

Here is a link to some pictures from the birth.

Welcome to the World Zoe!

I am happy to announce that Zoe Celine arrived December 1st at 10:05pm.  She was born at home with her father, grandmother,  Aunties Alicia and Danielle present.  She weighs 7 lbs 14 oz and is 20.4 inches long.  It was a beautiful birth and we have been enjoying our babymoon.

The first time Ally met Zoe.

First Snow

Sunday, November 16 marks the first official snow.  At least in my mind - we woke up to about 5 cm and Ally got to shovel the deck for the first time.

Walk around Didsbury

We went for a nice walk this past weekend in Didsbury.  And Mike got some beautiful shots.


Can you count the kids?  There are 4 seriously.

I am going to catch you!

Our good friends Tammy and Ber had twin boys at the end of September.  Ally and I have enjoyed being around babies again.  We went for a nice fall walk on Remberance Day.  Ally got to use her new stroller with her best friend, Ryla.  

Night Away

Our friends Reagan and Marilee were married Nov.1 in Banff.  It was a beautiful wedding and a fabulous night out and away.  Ally stayed with Grandma Jan, while Mike and I partied the night away - well as much as one does 36 weeks pg.  



Ally had a wonderful Halloween.  She had a party for some of her friends, got to wear 2 costumes and answerred the door to the trick or treaters.  I wouldn't let her trick or treat because the rule in our house is if you can't say you can't do it.  She tried really hard to say,"Trick or treat."  Next year she will be able to do it and I think sing the song that goes with it.

Thanksgiving in Lacombe

Getting Nicky kisses.

Disgusting! Why did I think this looked good?!

Before Thanksgiving Dinner, Ally got to spend some time with Grandma Jan and then went and visited all the animals and other fun things on the farm.

Gwen, it's for you!

Just a second, I have to take this call.

This year we were very honoured to have Joyce, Charlie and Sandra join our Thanksgiving Dinner. The visit was wonderful and so was the food!

Outside fun

We started our Thanksgiving in Didsbury this year. It was a beautiful fall day so Mike and Ally went for a walk. Ally enjoyed all the leaves and rolling around in the grass where Mike enjoyed finding interesting sights to better his photography skills.

I did it!

Alexandra's hair has been bugging me for weeks. I finally decided that I would take her to salon for kids but then today my bangs were driving me up the wall too. So I made a huge decision and decided to cut our hair.

Messy hair

Her bangs were constantly in her eyes.

First cut - got to be fast! Super crooked. Oh no!

The final result but will need some touch ups when Daddy gets home.

So I have joined the ranks of horrible mother's everywhere and cut her daughter's hair and didn't do a good job. Luckily I am the only one who will remember this.
