Let's See...

Hmm.. Im tempted not to write this all out, since the last few times i've tried i've just got notifications from blogger saying I needed to pay if I want to upload more pictures and post more posts.. super odd!!

ANYWAY-- Since its been months and months and well months clearly a TON has happened, we moved to Edmonton, we are back in Airdrie, We built a house which will be done in 5 sleeps!! Our new house is everything I ever wanted in a home, its perfect and I cant wait to move in.
Also we lost a baby at 15 weeks which definitely wasn't an ideal situation, and yet were all still here and pushing through our crazy lives. I've been taking lots of pictures, and I get to take school photos this year for a school here in Airdrie, I am so excited to do that, and Im excited that school photos this year will not be the same old boring photos that parents typically get!!
My 3 kids are still as absolutely amazing as ever- Rylee is in grade 1 and doing amazing in it, she's been put into the group with the few grade 2 kids in the class because she is able to catch on to everything so quickly, she's a smart little girl!
Hailyn is in Pre-School and surprisingly loves it, she's a little sassy thing and of course the princess of the house still
And then My baby Brenner is getting to be such a big boy, and im still completely obsessed with him. He's so good, and so entertaining!
I have so much to be thankful for, and life is busy and great!

                                                 Brenner loves to give parker Kisses!

My beautiful amazing perfect baby will be ONE on June 9th!!!! Unfortunately we are unable to celebrate right on his birthday since Jordan is gone to Edmonton working, so June 10th is the Day- I figure since 1st birthday parties are pretty much family dinners that sunday was ok.. 

BUT It's been an amazing year so far! I cant wait for the many years to come, Brenner is awesome!!
this is his invitation-- with the address blocked out, cuz ya never know! ; )

About Time!

I am a horrible Blogger! I guess since with the world of Facebook, blogging seems to just be a repeat of everything on there. Still I have become so horrible with writing down my kids accomplishments- I need my blog to have the "paper trail" of it all.

We will start with the naughtiest and work our way down:
Rylee is almost done Kindergarden and she LOVES it, she is one smart girl- almost to smart for her own good. She loves learning, and figuring new things out. She also has started reading and can write a whole bunch of words on her own, plus she loves math and is so good at figuring it all out. 
She is now in Sports Class, which she also loves. Rylee is my boy in a girls body! Her newest love is the Avengers & Captain America- she is having an Avengers themed birthday party this year, she's so excited for it too. 

Hailyn is still my sweet sweet princess! It is next to impossible to get her out of the house without a dress or skirt on with her high heels on also. 
She is so good, and lives in her own little "la la" land most of the day. She has learned how to write her own name now, and she is pretty proud of it! 
We still get serenaded with her beautiful opera. 

And then there is Baby Brenner. Who will always be my baby, even though he is such a big boy already. I cant even believe that the last year is almost over, and in just a few weeks by beautiful baby boy will already be 1. 
Brenner is still as amazing as ever. He's so happy, and smart and I can not get enough of him. He has the most ridiculous teeth! His 2 bottom ones, and then this two top ones- not the middle ones, but the ones on the side. It makes him look like a vampire- but hey, after all vampires are pretty dang cute!

Brenner is one busy busy boy!! He also has a list of words he says, but only when he wants to, I cant tell him to say a word and have him repeat it. He says though: Mom, Dad, Hi (he says that one to everyone) Daisy, Baby, more, up and of course pop -- some of them are not always pronounced perfectly BUT he knows what they mean and says them at the right time. Except every dog or animal (like today with the sea lions) but every animal is "Daisy" 

He sits and examines things and tries to put things back together. He goes where the cups and lids are and tries to match up and put the lids on the cups, or tries to put his shoes back on after they go off ect.. and he sits and tries to colour already- which may be bad for my walls! 

Brenner is the cutest ever, I have yet to go out with him and not have some lady stop to tell me how adorable he is and how they love his big blue eyes. 

We cant get enough of Brenner. He has 3 moms in this house, especially Rylee who helps out SO much and takes great care of him. 

There is the short and sweet update on my wonderful children who I love so much! Life is perfect because of my family, my husband and my kids and I couldn't be happier!

The Final Event

And now onto the final birthday event:

It was a super fun birthday, and the decorations were so cute! the pictures just really don't do justice how pink and "princessie" <--- not a real word.... BUT how cute the main floor was decorated. Tissue pom poms, banners, "princess" balloons, diamonds, flowers ect.. covered the main floor. Hailyn loved it, which made it all worth while! ---am I the only one that LOVES kids birthdays?? Seriously how fun is it to throw your kids birthday parties? they feel so special, and the day is all about them, PLUS we get the fun job of arranging and throwing a party, I really do love it, and I know I will love it more and more as they get even older and we can expand what we are able to do. But back to her party..

Hailyn got to pick who she wanted to come to her party, a couple of the girls were not able to come (we missed you Georgia, Brooklyn and Talia!!) But luckily Presley, Paytin, Cosette, Khloe, Brittyn (we'd really like to keep Brittyn, she's such a great help!) and of course Rylee were able to come and celebrate Hailyns special day.

We started off the day by having mini manicures, Brittyn helped me out and painted all of the girls fingernails with super sparkly nail polish, then after they were all dry we decorated princess crown sugar cookies with pink icing (which really was delicious) and sprinkles, m&m's and nerds, sprinkles were all over the main floor but I wouldn't expect anything less!!

After cookies were all beautiful we had bbq'd hot dogs, chips and sparkling princess juice in princess cups. Lunch was delicious (as delicious as hot dogs and chips can be) and then we opened presents-- Hailyn got super spoiled again and got wonderful presents (thanks everyone!). Presents were opened and then Happy Birthday was sang and candles were blew out.  The girls were sent home with giant Tangled colouring books as a thank you for sharing Hailyns special day.

It was such a fun time, giving Hailyn a special day was so much fun and I know she loved it! Happy 3rd Birthday!!!

First Royal Event

The first royal event has come to an end. It was quite an eventful day, a day fit for a princess. Princess Hailyn sure got the treatment, and I wouldn't have it any other way- nor would she!!

 We started the day off with delicious pink princess crown pancakes, with apple juice served in what we like to call "princess" cups

 Followed by the spectacular birthday bubble balloon bath! A tub full of balloons and bubbles, it sure doesn't get much better than that!!
 All dressed up for her birthday, it didn't last long, of course what would a royal event be without wearing a princess dress.. (i thought id try getting the birthday shirt on her!)
 no thats not editing, she had make-up on
 And then the dress.. What a perfect choice of outfit for bowling!

And then luckily after bowling I convinced the princess to put back on her other outfit for our dinner trip to McDonalds, followed by cake with everyone that could make it.

It was a perfect day for Hailyn, she woke up and was SO excited it was her birthday, and we did everything we could to make it a special day. She got super spoiled with tons of presents from my parents- i'm pretty sure I didn't need to buy her anything and she wouldn't have even noticed! But we did of course get her gifts, and tomorrow she will spend the day busy opening boxes and playing with everything. My princess was so tired after a long day she was asleep as soon as her royal head hit her pillow.

Hailyn is such a joy to have in our home, she is goofy, silly, sassy, smart, kind, helpful, beautiful, sweet and all in all just perfect. Happy 3rd birthday princess, although she says she is 5, she is my little girl and there is no way i'm going to let her grow up as fast as she would like!!

A Royal Party

It is almost my princesses 3rd birthday! Although she will say she is already 5 (apparently she was able to somehow skip a few years!) We did a fun little shoot for her invitations, I let her pick out whatever she wanted to wear-- no surprise what she picked!
Hailyn is so smart and so silly, she seriously says the funniest things all the time. She also has a little attitude on her, which makes her even more of a princess!! She loves to sing opera at the top of her lungs, and have her hair, make-up, and nails done. She loves jewellery, dresses, high heels and well everything girly!! She is such a great little girl, and we enjoy every min of her!!

she calls this one her "laughing picture"

this one is her "turning around smiling picture"

and haha she calls this one her "sweet smiling picture"

and here is the invite, minus our address.. 
Hailyn will be having (of course) a princess pampering party, where her little friends will come and be pampered for the afternoon and get the royal princess treatment! Its going to be a fun time!!  Were not 100% sure if it will be the 11th or 18th, but one of them it will be since her birthday is the 15th.
