Happy Birthday Addison

WOW my baby is 3 yrs old!!!
How time flys! Addie sure does give me a run for my money! Shes always on the go, if shes not dressing up like a princess shes either fighting her older sister or eating! Her true love in life is Damian Mcginty from Celtic thunder! She is in love with this group and knows most of their songs. She will sing and dance with all the songs and copy exactly what Damian does on all of them.

10 things about Addison!

1. She has the cutest smile! and for the most part is happy all the time.
2. She has the best manners for a 3 yr old. She always says please and thank you
3. I love how you ask her to do something and she will respond with "in a minute".. I think she gets that from me!
4. I love how she calls Don "Donald" not Don not Dad, but just Donald
5. She gives the best hugs at bedtime.
6. Her hair! when its done its soo cute but when its not done it looks like a turkey butt in the back.
7. The fact that she loves her sister, she maynot show it all the time but when Kenzie is hurt Addison is the first to come over and comfort her.
8. She loves peanut butter, if she could have a peanut butter toast for every meal I think she would.
9. Shes so tiny for her age she is still in size 24 months for pants but a size 2t for shirts. Makes buying clothes a real challenge cause shes not a baby anymore but that is all that I can find that fits her.
10. Shes my baby girl and I love her so much!

Dont Judge

Just got this poem from my aunt,sure makes you think.


I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven's door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its decor.

But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp--
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics and the trash.

There stood the kid from seventh grade
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice.

Herb, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.

I nudged Jesus, 'What's the deal?
I would love to hear Your take.
How'd all these sinners get up here?
God must've made a mistake.

'And why is everyone so quiet,
So somber - give me a clue.'
'Hush, child,' He said, 'they're all in shock.
No one thought they'd be seeing you.'


Remember...Just going to church doesn't make you a
Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.

Every saint has a PAST...
Every sinner has a FUTURE!
Now it's your turn... Share this poem

Ok so its been awhile since I last updated this blog. I promise this year I will do a better job!

So much has changed in the last year its crazy, most of its been for the good and some of it just had to happen.Here is our little update on our family!

Lets start with the most exciting new..I finally filed for divorce. Its been a long time coming but I was finally able to do it..thanks with the help from my dear grandma. And I cant wait for it to be over with. I know its not going to be smooth but at least it will be done and he will be out of my life.

I am still working at the ATB Financial in Calgary. Its alot different working in the big city, you never know who or what you are going to encounter during the day.I dont really care for the 45 minute drive everyday but its a job and I love it. About a year ago I met a wonderful guy named Don, hes the best. The girls love him and think the world of him. He is everything I should of looked for in my first 2 husbands...hahah!!! He treats me like a queen and I love it!

Kenzie is now in grade 3!! I am getting soooo old. She is loving school and is a great help wtih her little sister. She is still full of spunk and energy despite what damage Kyle did.

And then there is Addison, she is almost 3 and CRAZY!! She goes to daycare for most of the time and shes.. ummmm... well ... shes a fighter, she knows how to hold her own! Kenzie and Addie are your typical sisters, love eachother one minute and fight the next... its great!

Total random picture I know but its a cute one. It was at the corn maze in Calgary, great weekend. We had alot of fun but really muddy!!

"Bald is Beautiful Ryandel has graciously said that she would shave her head if we reach our goal of $4500 dollars. So lets get donating and prove that bald is beautiful"

These are the signs that are plastered all over ATB Financial Deerfoot Meadows in Calgary. I think I have lost my mind. LOL But in all reality its going to a good cause. The other day I had a customer come into the branch, and like all customers I ask if they would like to make a donation. He asked me what he would get out of it. Then he proceeded to ask me what one of us was going to shave our heads. I having the big mouth that I do said that I would if we reached our goal. Not really thinking that we would reach our goal. He then says ok, I will donate 2000 if you shave your head. So with that big donation we are almost half way to my goal and still have til the end of May, so long story short I will be bald for the summer. But the upside is all the money I will be saving on shampoo and conditioner and HAIRSPRAY (my family says I use way to much hairspray)
Every year ATB Financial fundraises for the Alberta Children's Hospital and the Stollery Hospital up in Edmonton. This is ATBs 10 yr anniversary doing Teddy for a Toonie. I loved being the branch rep a few years ago in Cardston, so I volunteered to do it again this year. I had the opportunity to go on a tour of the new Children's Hospital here in Calgary and learn more about the machine that they are going to purchase with the help of ATB Financial. WOW... it was such an eye opener to go there and see all the sick children that are there, but to also see the amazing nurses and the amazing facility that they have there. So if any of you out there wanna help see me bald please go to your closest ATB Financial and tell them you want to make a donation to the Deerfoot Meadows branch. Stay tuned for pics of my new hair do!!
