I call this one 'Paparazzi-Dee'...I snapped this as she was heading out of Starbucks during our shopping day.  We had fun going to Michaels, Pier 1, Ikea, Scrapbookers Bliss, General Paint and Scrap Yard.

Popcorn & Movie Night

I brought my popcorn maker all the way from Sask to 'pop' some for the Chibrys...we used to always get together for movie & popcorn night when we were neighbours.  It was just what we needed to wind down an evening of a busy day.
This is probably the biggest bowl of popcorn I've ever made!

Hello Calgary!

It's been a few months since we've been back in our old town...we're looking forward to a weekend of visiting friends and getting tasks done for the new house.
Ahhhh, the mountains...I miss them!
We had some time to drive by our first house in the community of Mckenzie Towne.

Visit with Gramma Rose & Grampa Phil

We had a relaxing stay at Gramma Rose & Grampa Phil's in Penhold before heading to Calgary on Friday.
We missed Uncle Mark, so the kids thought they'd leave him these photos wearing his Calgary Flames helmet

Uncle Mark rescued three kittens and the kids has so much fun playing with them

And a stay with Gramma Rose just wouldn't be complete without her reading a bedtime story.

Thanks for having us!

I think the hilite of our stay with Grama was her adorable kittens...the kids just couldn't get enough of them.

Quick Visit to RDVF

We travelled to Red Deer today, on our way to Cory's Mom's house, and stopped in at Red Deer Valve & Fitting (I used to work at the head office in Calgary).  There we visited with friends/past co-workers Cam (above with Scarlett), Jeff (below) & Gord.  It was so nice to see all of them again.

Visit with the Allans

We stopped to stay overnight at the Allans on our first night of the trip.  Thanks so much for having us guys!
Check out the snowdrift in their backyard! 
There is a swingset under there!
It was our first time at their place since they did some house renos, it looks amazing.
