Closing a chapter (or is it a book?)

I haven't blogged in almost 2 months and I decided to make it official.  I am signing off and won't be blogging anymore, at least for the time being.  There may come a time when I will feel the urge to start it up again but for now - please stay in touch.  We are more than happy to let you know how we are doing and what is going on with us - all you have to do is ask.  Thanks for keeping up with us!

Dylan, Evan and Liam Turn Four

Happy Birthday to Dylan, Evan and Liam. We celebrated with some cousins and aunts and uncles and friends in Estevan this year.  It was a lot of fun.  Before the big party we opened a few gifts. 






My favorite pirates ever!



Dylan

Caden

Evan
Liam

In the afternoon we met up with Chris, Sherry, their kiddoes and Vicki and her kids at the pool.  After a couple of hours there we headed over to grandma and grandpa Jocelyns where we were joined by Avis and Lloyd, Adam, Trinda, and their kids.  It was a full house!. We had pirate cupcakes.



The boys had individual cakes and we always sing happy birthday, one at a time.







The kids really wanted a pinata so here it is...


It was full of gold coins and jewels!!

More presents!  This is the year of Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  They also got some new Rider Tshirts, much to Justin's disappointment.



Being Disney's "Jake"


Happy Birthday Boys!  Glad you had fun.

Halloween and the beginning of Birthday Celebrations

Another halloween has come and gone.  We had a few costume changes but here are the pictures.  The little boys were able to dress up at school so we started with that.  What should we wear to school for the halloween party;

Liam started out in the giraffe costume
Dylan thought he wanted to be a Knight

Evan had no doubts about wearing his pumpkin costume and this is what he wore to school and trick or treating in the evening.  He knew what he wanted!!

Liam decided on the pirate costume for the school party.

He said he was the Pirate CAPTAIN (naturally!)

Dylan eventually chose the Spiderman costume.


They had lots of fun at school and then evening came and it was time to trick or treat.  These costume changes were due to needing to put jackets underneath.  So Liam was the puppy, Evan was able to stick with his Pumpkin costume and Dylan was an Elephant.  Caden didn't get to wear a costume to school so he finally got to wear his Batman costume.










The little boys started to get cold and tired so Justin and Caden dropped us off at home and continued on for awhile.

The next day the boys got to celebrate their birthday with the school friends.  It is the start of some parties for them.  Here they are in their birthday hats from school!
