Deck the Halls 2009

Looooooooong time no blog. Story of my life this year. Boooooooo. It's been an insanely busy month. Chris and I went to Winnipeg the first weekend for his staff party. It was held at Celebrations Dinner Theatre, and was a HOOT. We had a great time. It was the first time since we've had children that we've actually left them behind and traveled somewhere. For about twenty-seven hours. Thanks to Mom and Dad who made it possible.

Dad's been doing great with his chemo. It's a bummer they can't go south this winter since Dad will be tied up with bi-weekly appointments, but that won't stop them from some weekend getaways here and there.

Cooper's birthday was on the 6th. That was the day we were coming back from Winnipeg. On Tuesday, the 8th, we had his birthday party. I made the invitation list based on the first six names of classmates Cooper gave me, intending to have the party at our house. I ordered THEEEEE MOST AMAZING cake. There is a local girl who could seriously win major awards for her cake artistry. Please note that everything was edible...even the map. She's fabulous. Not only a gorgeous cake but delicious too! Here are a couple pictures from the party:





I've managed to do a little Christmas shopping over the past couple weeks. Next exciting events of the month were the boys' Christmas concerts this week. I have a couple pictures and video from each, but I don't of course have permission from all the parents for posting so there are just pics of my boys. The videos are pretty cute too. Oh and this first picture was a weak attempt at a fun artsy picture for Christmas cards...



First was Cooper's concert on Wednesday:




Next day was Carter's...my handsome boy in his new sweater from Grandma :)



Last but certainly not least, I embarked on our fourth annual traditional Christmas tree decorating time-lapse video. Videos from previous years are available for viewing here.



Yesterday I went for my (approximately) quarterly hair appointment. I got my hair trimmed and had my highlights refreshed. By the way, I'm done work for the rest of the year. Yesterday was my last day. Today was very enjoyable. I took the boys to school then went for my eyebrow appointment. I did some computer work this morning then had a great lunch with Cindy and Leeanne. After lunch Leeanne and I did a little shopping then came here for some of Kelly's fabulous carrot cake. Chris's Dad made dinner and brought it over for us and we had a good visit. All in all a pretty good day!
