Merry Christmas

Jason, I and our dog made the trek to Ottawa this winter for Christmas. It had been almost a year since I had been home last and seen all of my family. We were there for 10 days, and man oh man was it ever nice to relax and kick my feet up at home! We missed our friends and family in Calgary too, but this trip replenished my spirits in so many ways. We miss you all ready and look forward to getting together again soon.

The girls hanging out at the church gym behind my parents house. We went over there to play basketball and so the guys could fly their remote control helicopters.

Christmas Eve with the siblings. My brother's have grown so much since I saw them last. Steve had facial hair!! haha

Brace yourself- Christmas morning always brings out our best looks (kidding) I am appauled at how pasty I am and everyone else is rock'n the bed head too, with no makeup... how lovely!
It is my hope that everyone had a great time over the break with family and you felt the spirit of Christmas in your hearts amongst all the hustle and bustle this season brings. I am so thankful for my family and can't wait to do this again :)

Grand-Daddy-To-Be Caved!

Yes he did. I guess I shouldn't say he caved in but he agreed that he wanted me to personally share our good news with him. And now I don't have to stress about him finding out what we're having through some random person. I know news travels so fast and I respect him wanting to keep the surprise but I would hate to find out someone spilled the beans to my dad before me. To be honest I feel it would be impossible to have my whole family and everyone else who knew keep it a secret from him till April even if they tried their hardest, someone would have slipped.
So here it goes, our official blog announcement... Jason and I are very excited to announce that we are expecting a baby girl!!! I feel like I have bonded with her ever since we found out, and again it was a great experience and we don't regret it. We're so excited to meet our daughter and I know my dad is ever so excited to meet his little grand-daughter :)
