changes, changes

Time flies...and things change. Can you believe Charlie started eating cereal yesterday! I'm in a bit of a rush today so i can't say much, but i'll come back after the week-end. We're going away to a spa week-end in West Brome to relax (and by "we" i mean my husband and I) my dad will be babysitting the kids. I swear that man is an angel! He does so much for us and we really appreciate every little thing. Thanks Dad!

ok so talk to you later!
Have a good long week-end!

mother's day cards

i made a mother's day card with my step-daughter (she's 7) today, it's fun we're starting to have more of a connection, she likes to craft-i like to craft. So i made a card for my MIL (the brown one) and she made one for her mom (the green one). I helped her with the basics, but she most of it herself. here are our masterpieces.

in memorium

i just came back from the vet's office and unfortunately I had to leave Venus there. She was 14 yrs old and in the past 6 months she was getting more arthritis in her hips. She wasn't jumping as high. In the past 3 weeks she didn't even jump up on the coffee table or couch anymore. And since last Sunday she deteriorated extremely fast. She lost all her weight, she was very bony this morning. Probably due to the fact that she had stopped eating and drinking 4 days ago. She was extremly dehydrated, her bladder was completely empty and she was most likely in a lot of pain. The vet could've kept her over night and plugged her on an I.V., they would've done blood test to see if kidney's were still functioning and to what extent. But she probably would still be in pain afterwards, so i decided to put her to sleep. It was for the best, at least now she's not in pain anymore.

so sorry that i haven't updated my blog lately. I really don't have a good excuse other than the fact (as the title says) that i'm a procrastinator! Last sunday's SU demo was a lot of fun, thanks to all the girlz that came over. i can't wait to get my stuff ( i spent the most out of everybody!) but i got stuff that i really wanted and i think that will be useful in my scrapbooking pages and cards.
Tomorrow is the NSD (National Scrapbooking Day) yes they have one of those! i'm going to an all-day crop at Scrapbook Centrale, there was so many people that wanted to sign up that she ended up renting a local at the DDO Civic Center, how cool is that gonna be! So as my usual routine i'm gonna stop by Starbucks and get myself a coffee. I usually get a mint mochaccino but since it almost summer i think i'll get an ice coffee tomorrow! yum!!! I've got 3 pages planned and i think if i still have time after that i'll start on my altered accordion book for fathers day. it was supposed to be the last project for my scrapbooking classes but the second session was cancelled also due to a lack of people.

On a different note, Brady has been great lately. I think he's over the worst of his terrible two's (even though they weren't that bad to start off with) He's been so cooperative lately. i still have to repeat myself and ask him more than once (most times) but it doesn't end up in tears. He'll usually saying OK. but in this cute little voice. I love hearing those words coming out of his mouth. or he'll say, "i'm coming" when i ask him to come over here...
The other day he did the sweetest thing. i smashed my toes on a chair on my way to the computer to check my email, Brady was sitting at the kitchen table eating his cereal. So after stumbling into the office i'm sitting at the computer desk and Brady says: " ok?" I said: "yeah yeah, mommy's ok", it stays like that. 5 min later i go back out into the living room and he looks at me and says: "Maman? You OK?" I say " yes sweetie i'm ok" he holds out his arms and says: "Calin" (hug) so i go over and get my hug, i stand up and he holds out his arms again and says "Calin" again. So i get a second hug just to make sure that i'm feeling better. So i tell him that he always knows what to do to make me feel better. Isn't he the sweetest little boy?!
