 So I am not sure if I have ever mentioned this but I love Pete the Cat - Pete the Cat is part of a book series that I use to teach in my classroom.   My friend Cindi got this shirt for me and I love it! 

 Here are the boys enjoying Friday night movies and popcorn with lots of butter and ranch seasoning!

 Hudson - so proud  - first tooth gone.  Poor Oliver still hasn't lost a tooth - we keep assuring him it will fall out soon.

 Jackson turned 8 - here is is Winnipeg Jets Jersey cake - it was a great party, lots of noise and fun on the backyard rink!

Oliver and Hudson ready for their first school concert.  They were asked to dress fancy - Jackson didn't want to be in the picture but I will get a shot of all 3 at the Christmas eve service!

Out with the boys!

 I got to have a date night with these 2 cuties.  We went to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.... Hudson and Oliver loved it, we had a fabulous time!

 At the Jets game, look how close he is to the ice.... John was given JETS tickets by the Vice President of MPI - in recognition of his hard work, dedication to his job and going the extra mile. Way to Go John.  Glad you got to enjoy this game and have a night out with Jackson!

 Best buds!!

 Jackson was so excited to be so close to the JETS - he was on TV many times that evening and he even got on the jumbotron :)

Getting a pic with Montoya
So excited!!

Is this the next Andrew Ladd??

 Jackson and his brothers were gifted some hockey gear and well, I bet you can imagine how excited there were.... Jackson just recently started skating lessons.... while he might not be the next Andrew Ladd, he is having a blast, loving life, and I just love that he has found this LOVE OF HOCKEY - it is a good obsession for him :)

 Love your smile!!

I think the socks are my favourite!

Go Jets Go !!!

 A last minute decision, but we decided to treat the whole family to an exhibition game to see the Ottawa Senators vs. the Winnipeg Jets.   The boys were so excited, something I think they will remember for a long time!

 We couldn't get 5 seats together so Jackson and I sat together and Hudson and Oliver sat with John.  It was very dark in the MTS Centre, so the pictures aren't the best quality.  Here is Jackson before the game is about to start!

 A view from John's seat!

 Hudson, posing for a picture!!

 Love his face!!

 Why is it so loud in here!!

 Go Jets Go!!

 Jackson was so excited, I loved watching him more than the game.   The Jets did not win, they lost 3-1.  The next morning Jackson woke up and came up to me and said.... It really didn't matter that the JETS lost mom..... I got to see that 1 goal.  I see they score all the time on TV and seeing that 1 goal live  was a dream come true   :) :) :)   Love ya buddy!!

 More of the game!

 Poor Oliver, can you see his red chin..... he fell just before the game, and scrapped himself good......sitting here patiently, once the period is done, they are getting pizza and popcorn with DAD.

 #1.....  they loved their foam fingers!!!


 Family Shot!!


 Final picture, getting ready to head home!!!!  What a fabulous night!!!!

First Day of School 2013/2014

 Here is Jackson all ready for Grade 2 - way to go Buddy!  He wanted a JETS backpack so badly - so happy he got one!!

 Oliver - can't believe you are in Kindergarten - Oliver wanted a super mario brothers backpack - he was nervous for kindergarten but his reports from his first day were - I loved it, it was lots of fun!!

 Hudson - you are so big - can't belive it ! Hudson got a goomba backpack, I don't even know if I am spelling that right!   Hudson was upset when I left the school, he cried and cried and the principal had to pull him away from me, but when I picked him up, he said... I had a great day it was so much fun and my teacher dresses so nice!!!

 Mommy and her boys

The Things Boys Do !

 We were recently at a playdate, and the boys were in the basement playing with one of their "girl" friends.... I was upstairs chatting with my friend when Oliver came up and said check this out mom...... I couldn't believe it, I snapped a picture sent it to John and his only word was "YIKES"..... Oh Oliver, this picture may come back to haunt you one day ;) Love you Buddy!!

Oliver also pulled up the dress to show me he was wearing clacking shoes.. his word for high heel shoes!!
