I am currently getting ready for a 1st birthday bash for Charlotte next Saturday! It's gonna be fun! There are going to be 8 children (all between 7 and 17 months!!!!!) CRAZY! 

It will be so nice to have most of Charlotte's friends together in one place before we leave. I'm going to TRY to get a picture- but it's hard to get kids to cooperate for cameras much of the time alone, so 8 might be quite difficult! 

The theme is LUAU!! Matt picked it- he went shopping with me to the party store and didn't like any of the 1st birthday decorations- so Luau it is! it will be fun! We even have a Hula dancer with a hole for a face- where the kids can put there faces, and we can take a picture! HA!

I also hope to do something with all the kids, that Charlotte can keep to 'remember' her first birthday, and her time in Brampton. Something like... footprints on fabric squares- and make a wall hanging or quilt, or poster paper with footprints or handprints of her friends... I haven't quite figured that out yet. If you ave any ideas- or know what paint would work well for baby/toddler foot prints on fabric- feel free to comment and let me know! With only 1 week left, and 2 weeks until the huge move- I really have no space in my brain for more ideas!!!! 
The party should be fun! I'l be sure to post pictures... hopefully sooner than later!

New Pictures!

 I got a new snowsuit in the mail from Grandma.... it was a bit big! see!!! So we returned it and got one a little more my size!

We also got this extra fun backpack baby carrier! it's the best!

Here is Grammpie singing to me! I love to dance to his singing!

and... I got fairy wings and a tutu .. so I had to model them while at Grammie and Grampie's house!

Here I am eating my very first turkey dinner! I loved every bite! it was the best!

and.... our house sold! It sold conditionally after just 2 days! But we had to wait until just yesterday for all the conditions to be met! so we got the sign! YEAH! Charlotte enjoyed riding on the sign!

It's been a busy week, but a good one!!

reviews, giveaways etc at the baby bottom line!

Well latly, I've seen so many new things for kids and babies in stores and online.. but anything with 'baby' attached to it (much like 'wedding') automatically means they can double the price and seem to get away with it!

The Baby Bottom Line is a blog that I read that has a bunch of great reviews, giveaways and generally fun, informative posts!

Right now, there are a couple of giveaways on-- look at this one for instance--FUN!

Go visit, have a look around!

Pumpkin Patch Pictures or PPP

We are selling our house (and I must say it has never been so clean it all it's life!!)

Anyway, we had a Open House on the weekend, so we took advantage of the family time and took Charlotte to the Pumpkin Patch! Here are some of the cutest pictures of the day!

spot the pumpkin!

she looks like this :) and here is her daddy too!

Daddy found a John Deere- so it was a great photo-op!

this one is tricky- where is she?? the cutest pumpkin in the bunch!

look- a pumpkin that's almost her size!
