Crazy Week!

Well this week and last week have been absolutley insane! I've gotten good news and Bad news and life as I once knew it has ended! (Ok so maybe I'm being a little overdramatic but somedays it certainly feels like it!!!)

Good news first....I'm an Aunt!!! Woo Hoo! Kris and Catherine welcomed Hannah Julia Chatham into the world on Thursday Jan 24th! She weighed in at 6lbs 12oz and I would totally post a picture but they haven't sent me any. There's no cameras in Yellowknife or something??? Come on now, I want a picture of my Niece! Anyway I guess they're all doing well cause I haven't heard anything else from them...I've even left 2 messages and I assume if something went wrong Mom would have heard about it. I promise I'll post a picture as soon as I get one!

Bad new...Michelle has been diagnosed with Crohn's disease. Not cool in any way shape or form and I have no idea if she'll kill me for having posted that. She's handeling it WAY better then I did...I had to get a blessing before I felt any type of Comfort (please no one mention that to her, cause she doesn't need to worry about me) however now I'm doing ok even though it still SUCKS! I REALLY wish there was something I could give her a Kidney or something, but there isn't so we all just have to deal with it...and I should probably go get tested myself...but I'm holding out on that option for now.

So there's my crazy week in a nutshell. If you notice to the right of my Blog I have a fun little poll going to see where I should go for Vacation so if you haven't already done so, please take the time to click a box. I'm interested to see what will win!

Holidays are Fini!

Well, Christmas has come and gone and it's all back to real life. Which is kinda sad really, I was having a grand time in the Scosh not working, just doing nothing all day well, except for the part where I did the running around, and the grocery shopping...and everything else that no one else had time for. It was fun to see everyone I got to see and I'm sorry that I didn't get a chance to really hang out with everyone. When you haven't seen your family in 8 months, you just really want to spend a good chunk of time with them. I do have some cool pictures though.

So here's Teeny, Davis and Sammy. I think Davis had on more makeup then's all right though! He can pull it off.

These are my Cousins Kayla and Brad. How cute are they??? I have to admit that one of the things I miss the most are all the Kids. Being in a Singles branch and not really knowing any family's with Kids I don't really see a whole lot of them out here. There's just no one for me to play with!!!

Grampy plowing the driveway. When Mom and I went up to Fredericton for the weekend they got 30cm of snow on the Saturday. So Grampy goes and and gets this super cool tractor from the garage and procedes to plow out the driveway...which is really more like a cul-de-sac in the yard...the thing is Huge! Anyway I thought it was cool enough to take a picture!

All right so I Know Debbie would KILL me for posting this...(so please don't tell her Rob) but I ran into my favorite girls at the Superstore and had to get a picture. Incidently I don't really have any pictures of Morgan smiling....I really don't think she liked me all that much :) Everytime I saw her she would cry, so I guess it was me :) It's all right though...Emma still likes me :)
Those are some of the fun highlights from my trip! I'll post more pictures off to the side. Plus there's always facebook.
Anyway I'm now addicted to the show Project Runway. I don't know if you've ever seen it, but it's totally awesome. It's a bunch of fashion desingers trying to win the money for their own clothing line. Seriously, I have no idea what I ever did before TV on DVD. Actually it's sad how it's consuming my life. Well...that and reading. (I actually did read the Twilight series Kristi, I LOVED it, you should totally read "A Great and Terrible Beauty" by Libba Bray)
I hope all is well and that you had great Holiday fun!!! It's back to the real world now!!! P.S. If you had the choice to go to Salt Lake or Ireland which would you choose??? I need comments on this cause I only have enough Vacation this year to do one, and both have come up, so please, please give me your feedback!!!!
