Happy Birthday Daddy!

Yesterday, we decided to celebrate Daddy's Birthday. We know it was on Wednesday but we don't like Wednesdays. We decided Friday was better and Daddy had no say in the matter! The day started off with Daddy leaving for an Indian Head Massage at the spa! He came home feeling like a million bucks! Jackson greeted Daddy at the door with his party hat on and sang "Happy Birthday" to him (Jameson was being antisocial and decided he'd prefer to nap longer so he missed out on surprising his Daddy)! I know, the boys look so cute in their party hats right? Well Dad wasn't left out. He got one too! He was the Birthday Prince! ;)

While Daddy was out, Mum tried to make carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese icing as a surprise, but they didn't turn out. Ooops! I goofed up! But if you like "Just Like Mom" cupcakes, then they turned out just right! Thank goodness for Plan B - two bit cinnamon buns! Jameson woke up and the three of us sang Happy Birthday to Daddy again! We had birthday lunch and when the boys went to bed, we had a special birthday dinner & dessert planned in peace and quiet aaaaaaaaaaah! It was a nice day! :)
My gift to you ... more laundry!

Little Rockers

Our boys love to rock n roll! They look the part and they certainly dress the part! Now the play the part! We bought these nifty guitars for the boys last year. We thought we were going to give them their guitars as a Christmas gift but Daddy couldn't wait to get them started, so they've been playing these since they were about 4 months old LOL! They're quite good at it too! Here a pic of them in action!

9 Months In The Making!

When the boys were born, we decided that we would document their growth in a special way. Every month, we take a photo of our boys inside Daddy's guitar case. It's really neat to see their progression of growth every month, but this month, things changed ... they no longer fit (tear tear), so we had to improvise! Here are a few photos of the kiddies over the last 9 months!

We're 2 weeks old (and we're so tiny)

We're 1 month old (we're getting longer)

We're 3 months old (holy cow, did we ever grow)

We're 6 months old (it's getting pretty tight in here)

We're 9 months old (and now we sit up for these photos)

Brushing Never Looked So Good ...

Now that Jameson has a tooth, it's time to brush-those-teeth! Jameson loves brushing his tooth. OK, I'm not sure if he's brushing it .. he's probably playing with his toothbrush more than anything else, but at least he's got good oral hygiene!


We took the boys to the park today after Gavin's 1st Birthday Party to swing on the swings! It was a little chilly so we didn't last very long but the boys seemed to have fun! Jackson enjoyed the pure thrill of the swing, while Jameson explored, taking in what was going on around him ... these twins are so totally different, it's not even funny!

Happy 1st Birthday Gavin!

Happy Birthday to our favourite cowboy on his 1st birthday! Way to go buddy! May you have many more wonderful birthday to come!

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday dear Gavin ...
Happy Birthday to you!

Hey!!! My parents were totally holding out on me!

Nothing Better Than ...

A sleeping baby on his daddy ... how precious is this?

Shut It!

Does this need an explanation? I think not .. this happens at least once a day! Brotherly love at its finest!

Is it too much to ask for a little P&Q Jackson?

Drama to the Fullest ...

I've been in "photographer-extraordinaire" mode ever since we got our Pentax! It's a great camera and I love using it! I've been learning photoshop on my own with any spare time I get and decided to try a couple techniques out on these photos I took of the boys .. I think they came out looking cute yet dramatic! :)

Our Beautiful Family

We took a couple photos with our beautiful boys when we got home from Bronte Creek. They looked so cute with their hats on .. we just couldn't resist! They turned out so nice that I had to share! :)

Jax and his Mama

Jaz and his Daddy (1960s style)

We love Maple Syrup!

The Fourniers and Russells family went to Bronte Creek to partake in the Maple Syrup Festival. It was our first outing of many for 2009 and aaaahhh, it was a beautiful day! The perfect day to ring in the boys turning 9 months old! Too bad the park was so packed that we couldn't enjoy most of the activities that took place that day. All the lines were so long, so we weren't able to buy any maple syrup, fudge, or sugar cookies. I wanted maple taffy so bad but again, the lineup was so long ... what a bummer! Don't go to the Maple Syrup Festival during March Break people ... it is nuts!! But we weren't going to let it get us down. We went to the Festival with a mission in mind ... PANCAKES!!!

We went to the Pancake House and the lineup was out the door (and around the corner) but we didn't care. It was 200pm and we were starving so we lined up and got our grub by 300pm! Was it worth the wait? Hell ya! We got 10 pancakes, 4 cups of pure maple syrup, 5 sausauges, a heap of bacon, and 4 drinks for $20.00! Holy mama, it was so gooooooooood!

First Tooth for Jameson!

A picture paints a thousand words ... although Jameson has been an absolute terror now that he's actively teething, his new tooth is just too cute for words!
This is just the start ...

Backyardigans ...

It's their favourite show ... they can watch the same episode over and over again. And when it ends, they get upset. They scream and throw things at the TV ... it's madness! But the Backyardigans also comes in book form. Thank God for that! The boys aren't really into books (despite our best efforts) but they looooove these books, especially Jackson! :)

Where's Waldo?

Sleeping Beauties

Jax and Jaz love to sleep in our bed for their afternoon nap while I catch up on The Young and the Restless. And I totally don't mind when they end up like this! Although I'd prefer that they nap when they need to in their own cribs, I just couldn't resist snapping a photo of the moment they shared! Too cute! :)

The Ring ...

Who knew that such a simple toy, like a ring, would provide so much enjoyment for babies! Here are a couple pics from their play session!
