Halloween 2008

We had a Storm Trooper and a Princess for Halloween this year.  We did our first trick or treating in Oxbow & had a blast!

I ventured out with girlfriends later on in the night: Christy, me, Michelle & Jocelyn
Earlier on in the day, the kids & I took part in the Expressway Family Centre's Halloween party for the kids.  They arranged morning trick or treating at businesses around Oxbow.  It was a great time for the kids.

Trick or treating at Nana & Papas
Even Piper dressed up as our Puppy Princess
We all had a great Halloween Day!

Our New Puppy

While I was away in Winnipeg, Cory notified me that when I returned, there might be another family member living at our house.  We had been taking for months about getting a dog for our family since our kids were so interested in having one.  After much thinking, Ace & Scarlett decided they wanted a large dog.  So when we heard that there were Lab-cross puppies being given away in a town close to Oxbow, Cory took the opportunity to take the kids to choose one while I was away.  I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her.

This is PIPER, the newest member of our family!

Trip to Winnipeg

My Mom treated my sisters & I to the Celine Dion concert in Winnipeg, MB...it was my first trip there in over 15 years.  It's only a 4 hour drive from Oxbow, Cory was so nice to keep our kiddos while I got away with the rest of the family.  I had alot of fun driving out with my sister Christa and her kids, it was a great trip.
Shopping at the Polo Park mall; it was one of the best shopping malls I've been too.
It was so much fun to roommate with my sister Amber, who flew in from Calgary.
We had dinner before the concert

My delicious meal
Kelby was so hungry...loved his pasta
Kyra saving her voice for Celine...too cute!
