One is Fun!


One....ONE???  It can't be??  Tomorrow my baby boy turns one years old!




Wow that year flew by - chocked full too!  It's hard to imagine the time when we only had two little blessings but this last year of triple blessing fun, has been wonderful! 



.


So this past weekend we had a little family celebration.  Gathering together with my side of our extended family, we crammed three events into one big ol' fun celebration. 


.



The weather couldn't have been finer!  With all the rain we have had, which now with a larger garden, I am thankful about - it was a blessing to have a day filled with sunshine!  We were at my mom's house to celebrate Joseph's first birthday, our nephew's second birthday and a send off/good bye party for my brother and his wife.




The little lads are one year and six days apart but almost the exact same size....so much for the hand-me downs! ;)  Each little guy got some nice gifts and had fun with all the family attention.

Our nephew Marcus is such a cutie and I have greatly enjoyed watching him grow! I always love when he (and my sister) come to visit - it's hard to believe his is two now!   He is such a sweet, curious and busy little guy.   My sister made him a super cute dinosaur cake, which was greatly enjoyed but we held off on cake for Joe until his actual Birthday.

The weather was perfect for some pool time fun.  And my brother was 'on board' for some swimming and splashing around!






 .



My brother is in the Canadian Navy - and for the last few years has been station close to us here - and it has been great - but they got word this year that he is being transferred to Washington D.C. for the next two or three years.  Crazy - he had moved back to Ontario just a few years ago after living (what felt like forever) on the West Coast - and now, to have him heading south...and to another country....  I am really happy for them but I am sure going to miss them!! ♥

And so they day was filled with family, fun, food and sun!  The kids had a ball even though I completely forgot to bring anything for them so they could get in the water - bad mom! ;)  But dipping their feet in and splashes from my diving brother kept everyone cool.

And so tomorrow we celebrate, just the five of us, our little man turning one.  This time last year, I was already having contractions and hadn't slept much that night.  One year ago from tonight, I was not sleeping much again either and my water had already started to leak.  One year ago from tomorrow - we would go strawberry picking, because what else do you do when in labour and your waiting around?!?! ;)  Then one more sleepless night - to a full day of contractions and then baby!

Still so....surreal! ;)

But amazing! 


So we have a little party planned this Saturday for Joseph, mostly family and our fremily - a farm themed party too no less! ;)  Oh and news on that front  - we now have CHICKENS!!!  I'll post soon on them but I think I shall be absent for the rest of the week as I will be getting ready for this little shin-dig and well...I still have those wedding photos to edit.  (I'm working on them, I promise - half way done!)  So not sure I'll get a 1000 Words post this week....though I'm guessing Bevy, might be the only one to actually notice! ;)  lol!  But we'll see...


...and one last thought - I caught this picture of my eldest - her birthday is coming up next in just a few weeks - can you see what I see?  That pose...that....attitude....man, she's getting old!
