Another Post! 2 Days in a Row!

Sorry to those of you who fell off your seat..... ;)

I just remembered a feel-good moment I wanted to record here for future scrapping purposes.

My new favourite thing said by one of my children (Brendan this time):

"Mommy, I just like you so much that I could love you forever."

He melted me on the spot. Love that boy.

I am still on a JBJ high. Did I mention he rocked my world?! Yeah, thought I had.
I'm trying to think of something new and exciting to write about....some good news! I've received a fair share of bad news this week so focusing on the good is necessary.

Took my kids for their annual check-ups this morning. They are both 110% healthy and going to be "very tall" when they grow up, according to the doctor. I don't care if they're 10 feet tall - just please let them stay healthy. The events of late have made me feel even more blessed to have them. Of course I never take them for granted but sadness in someone else's life often sheds a light on your own situation and makes you even more grateful for what you have. That's what I'm talking about.....2 great healthy kids that I couldn't live without.
Last weekend we went to Carole's place for some crafts and cookei making! The kids had a ball. Olivia loved playing with all of Rachel's dress-up clothes (guess what she asked Santa for, C?). Brendan also LOVED Riley's air hockey table while we were over. I'm glad we went - not only was it fun but now I have an idea of what to get my kids for Christmas! LOL
Last Saturday night we went to Orlean's Parade of Lights with Melanie and her family. What a fun time! The kids had prime seats and Danika and Olivia loved dancing to the music and chomping away on candy canes. Good times! Melanie has a bunch of pictures on her blog (can you believe I didn't bring my camera??). Here is one that she took of Olivia with her camera. Melanie would refer to this as "the money shot"..... Love it!
And one of my kiddos together. Two great kids! Love em. :)

JBJ Rocked my world!!!!

I got to see Bon Jovi in concert last night at Scotiabank Place with my best friend Cory. All I can say is WOW!! He is such an amazing performer....just wow! I think it was the best concert I've ever been to.

I am still on a Jon Bon Jovi high!!!! It was just amazing!! Did I mention it was amazing?!?!

*swoon*!! My fave song last night was "I'll Be There For You"...he had me mesmerized! That and Lay Your Hands on Me.....any time Jon!! ANY TIME!!! :) :)

Fact: Fall has never been a favourite season of mine. I'm a pessimist when it comes to Fall - it reminds me that Winter is just around the corner.

Fact: Time and circumstance can change many things.

Fact: Fall is beautiful and not so bad when you can share it with your family outdoors, taking beautiful pictures and enjoying each other!

Here are a few pictures I took of the kids a few weekends ago at Gatineau Park. (I just love Ottawa and the surrounding area--so many beautiful, green spaces!) :

Update on us - Work is crazy busy and I feel guilty about not being with the kids as much as I could. Maybe one day I can win the lottery not have to work as much. Brendan is loving being a 6-year-old (who knew one year older could make such a difference??) and has a big project to present tomorrow. Already! Barely into Grade 1. I'm sure he'll knock his teacher off her feet. :) Olivia is doing well - still loving ballet and all other things girlie.

Fave line of the week from my kids. Brendan said the following to me last night: "Mommy, I like you so much that I could love you forever." Right back at ya, B-Man.

Time for bed! Back to the grind tomorrow. I'll leave you with this little layout of my big boy:

6 Already!

Six years old......six.....six.... Wow! Unreal.

You realized tonight that you needed two hands now to show us how old you are. 2 hands...already. I remember your tiny hands this time 6 years ago when I held you after being only a few hours old. So tiny...that moment so unreal. Very similar to how I feel today.

I am very proud of you B-Man. You're a smart, energetic, fun boy. I love hanging out with you. I love hearing you say "Oh my gosh! Suhweet!!!!" You are growing so fast. And although I wish I could stop time some days, I do love watching you grow.

I hope you had a great birthday and I hope you enjoy your party tomorrow. You deserve it.

Love u,
Mommy xoxo
