I didn't want to miss my goal, but I'm too pooped to write tonight.

Would You Rather.....? Round # 1

I needed a few ideas for a blog post and I thought...what better way then to search the net and then play a game of:

Would You Rather....?

Go way back in time and meet your ancestors
(pre 1800's)


Go way into the future and meet your great grandchildren
(post 2200)

 For me, this was pretty easy, I would pick the future.   While it would be fascinating to see exactly who I came from and get some insight as to helped make, I could research that if I was truly interested.  But I would be so curious to see what future "Amy & Brian's" are like.  Plus, let's not forget all the other things you could find out by going into the future.

Which would you pick and why?

Pop Quiz

Here's the question I pose to you:

You make cookies for a  meeting at your house tonight.  The presentation looks like this:

One plate is for the meeting, the others are extra set aside for your family.

The pop quiz question is:
When your husband comes home to have one, which plate will he eat them off of?
*if you picked the fancy on the right, there is a good chance you will be correct*

Wear Sunscreen

I've been going over some old songs lately to add to my I Pod.  I came across The Sunscreen Song.  Anyone else remember this song?

It came out just after I graduated high school and it's been 14 years.

I listened to the lyrics and I must tell you, it's all very good advice.  They always say hindsight is 20/20.  It's so true!  If you think back 14 years to the problems you had, you will realize they were probably pretty trivial.   

Listen to the song and read the words, tell me they are not 100% true!!

Update on Life - Abby Edition

So yesterday was the update on Hayden and as promised, today is Abby's turn.

With her 4th birthday just around the corner, she has started junior kindergarten this year too.  The first few weeks were rough.  While she loved school itself, getting her there was a different story.  The walk to the school and into the yard was like making her walk the green mile. 

She has a temper to her and don't you dare tell her no.  She's so much fun to be around though and still loves to play babies.

She has a natural affinity to animals.  We got a new kitten in May and she is the only one that can pick that cat up when it's going all crazy and have it just lay there in her arms and give her kisses.

Here is a little look at my baby girl.

Update on Life - Hayden Edition

So, I have pretty much ignored this blog since May.

It's not that I couldn't have written, but as everyone knows, life sometimes gets in the way.

I haven't stopped blogging, but have been focused on my other blog more than this one.  A number of reasons for that I guess.  Part of it being that nothing real exciting has happened with us, just regular everyday things that most families deal with.

Anyway, here is a quick update.

The kids are great!  Hayden finished up grade 1 in June and headed on into grade 2 in September.  He is on the cusp of his 7th birthday and is in love with all things sports.  Hockey in particular.  He plays for the local team here and never misses a Peterborough Petes game.  If the Leafs are on tv, he insists on staying up to watch them and if he goes to bed before seeing the end, he will ask the results first thing in the morning or hunt down the Sports channel in the morning to see the recap of the game.

He's missing a few teeth and has the gooniest grin.  Not a day goes by that he doesn't make us laugh.  He talks CONSTANTLY, but we are working on that.

Here he is!


As for Miss Abby?

Check back tomorrow for a little update on her!

NaBloPoMo 2013 Edition

What is this all about you ask?

Let me give you the quick run down that I "stole" from my girlfriend's blog.

NaBloPoMo stands for National Blog Posting Month. The goal is to write a post a day for an entire month.  You can find more information at

"Thanks Bonnie"

I'm a day behind, as it started yesterday.  I tried to do this last year with my other blog, but failed miserably.  I decided to try it again...with BOTH blogs this time!

Here is to a November of blogging!

I'm posting this exact same post on my other blog!
