Christmas Break 2011

Just a few bits and pieces!

I can't tell you how many of this pic I have on my camera. LOVED that crab dip!

Our Day In Court

Our forever family of three!

Chully asked for Elmo this year. Just "Elmo". He was so excited to see Santa! I was part thinking that we could have a minor meltdown on our hands this year but he was in pure awe. Truth be told, so was I! Santa rules.

Side Note- I've also been working on a One Year anniversary post but I'm having some tech issues with my iPhoto. Coming soon!

Chully Art- Halloween 2011

Happy Halloween!

The viral rash persisted into the weekend but thankfully the doctor was right and he healed up on his own. It took a day or so longer than they originally thought but all was right in the world by the end of the weekend.
By Monday night Chully was ready to get costumed up and hand out treats to the neighbourhood kids.

Two of Chully's friends came to visit him on the job

Step right up, kids! I can chomp and toss!

You know what I was thinking about? This Halloween was the last holiday that we did not have memories of Chully from the year before. Isn't that something?! Its hard to believe that we're only a month away from being home for an entire year. Amazing. Time flies when you're having fun and feelin' blessed. Chully- Everyday is a holiday with you, pal. You're the best!

The Spotty Lion

So far the doc is going with "viral rash" but if its not gone by tomorrow morning we're to bring him back for another visit. Poor guy. Its all up his back, his belly. We had a PJ day today and I'd love to say it was all cuddles and sunshine but it was miserable. Tomorrow will be better.

Grown up Chully- tonight's dinner? That wasn't cheese on the gnocchi. It was pureed butternut squash. You really showed me by sucking the sauce of each piece and then feeding the pasta to the dog. ;)

Oldest trick in the book! Mom-1.

In A Nutshell

Hanging around at the park on one of the last summery days

Pumpkin Farm. We've been a few times. Its been a hit! Especially the animals!

Gotta have a butter tart at the pumpkin patch!

Chully's first day at Montessori {He is loving it! A more in depth post to come.}
Chully Art! The first two pieces he ever brought home from school! I had to boogie out of the classroom when his teacher passed them to me. I could have burst with pride.

First school pics! We're waiting on our order but I just couldn't wait to share!

Finally- for a bit of a chuckle...
Sparkie the fire safety dog! Chully was not impressed. Even after Sparkie gave him a sticker! That is saying a lot. We LOVE stickers these days.

Boy- time flies! I've been avoiding the blog for a few weeks now because I just couldn't face how long it had been since I've updated. I have so much to share but not much at all! Ha! Life, you know how it goes. Hope the pics make up for our absence. Even if just a tad. :)

Referral Call- One Year Later

This past Saturday was the one year anniversary of our referral call!
I've said it before, I'll say it again...What a difference a year makes!
We decided to celebrate by heading back to Montreal. This time as a FAMILY!

Hanging out poolside. Mike is teaching Chully how to blow bubbles in his drink :)

Notre Dame. The Prayer station I said a little prayer at moments before the call.

Playing in the park baby toes :)

Learning to kick. Chully LOVES the water.

Market stroll

Quick trip to Ottawa to visit the National Gallery.
