Merry Christmas!

I tried to get a group shot of the girlies…but it was not to be. This picture sums up my efforts.

But I hope you all had a very merry Christmas!! We have taken down all our Christmas stuff, put away the loot, and the packing has begun. We are leaving soon for a vacation to the Promised Land and we are quite excited about it! Not thrilled about the four flights it takes to get there, but the beautiful hotel, yummy room service, and a month with family and friends is definitely something to look forward to.

Ultrasound is booked…we’ll find out what we are having soon! Any guesses? I think it’s a boy…

I am the proud cousin and best friend since grade 3 of KPAM…also known as ‘Kris’ to the Becky Higgins world.

Kristal made an amazing video of her family, submitted it to a popular website, and was named one of the winners!! She’s famous, and because I know her, I feel famous as well 🙂

Check out her winning video here…


The miles separate us these days and in the past few years we’ve only seen each other a few times. But thanks to the good old telephone, I hear from her every day. At least once!

The last time I saw her was in February. Not the best circumstances to travel across Canada and spend a weekend together, but we still managed to have a great time. Here’s a tidbit of our weekend…

Getting beautified..

She got to meet my youngest turkey…who didn’t know what to think of it all!

And I got to meet her youngest turkey (although since February she has added another bun to the batch). But there are no pictures of me holding him, he’d have none of it!

Showing Duke and myself the videos she had made so far…

And you can’t visit our hometown without hitting up a few country shops! I have no idea how they got her treasures back to Alberta. Her hubby is a good sport, not many men would walk through all those airports holding a country ladder and whatever else she bought!

We are not gushy friends. We don’t hug…ever! But I will say this…

KPAM… It’s no wonder everyone so easily likes you. You are real, crazy, funny, truthful…the list goes on. Anyone that has you for a friend can consider themselves blessed. (Did you just laugh out loud? I totally heard you).

Yesterday while I was having a snooze, Dorey worked on her very first Christmas wish list! Daddy spelled it out for her while she printed, and she added her pictures. She would like two dolls, a bear, and a princess dress for her dolls.
