& Now It's MY Turn...


My Sister Adelaide did a fair job reporting on our big day...however there were some glaring errors & omissions! I, Sarah Grace, would like the opportunity to fill in & correct where possible!
She was right about the day starting out with Wellington & us waking our parents..THAT was fun...


But she commented on how cold it was outside and failed to mention what an absolutely beautiful day it was....as you can see !!

And what was that about "SHARING" ? Thank goodness for Mum's
camera-happy nature!! You can CLEARLY see what kind of SHARING was going on here!! Kind of like the SHARING Mum does with Dad when there is chocolate involved...
It's a good thing I got seconds!!


Adelaide thinks he's "Dreamy"... Heck, Fisher is an older man....& yet she couldn't keep her eyes off him...
Just LOOK !!


Note: There was NO beer on my tray when I fell asleep...just Rattle-Pup & the odd cheerio that Adelaide hadn't helped herself to!


And it wasn't my Auntie Laura that put it there either! No!! It was the "Annoying Thing" !! Nasty sense of humor he has!! What my poor parents must have thought!!


Hummmm...now here is a picture of "cute" ...Isaac is SOOOOO much fun! I love having him as my friend! He is Three now & SOOOOOO grown up!!
My sister clearly forgot to even MENTION him being at our party!!


I need to invite that fella over to play more often!
& Look, there is Kaleb too! He's cool too! Hummm...next warm weekend, we really need to get these boys over here, to teach them how to hook up a dog team!!

Did you see the booties Isaac gave me?? They are SOOO cozy warm & fuzzy...My Mum & Dad just love them!!
When I'm Three like Isaac, I will be able to put my booties on all my myself!!

Thank Goodness for Ms Debbie! If it wasn't for her, I'm sure Welly would have run away! So much noise, so many people...so little attention...the heart-break of it all...After a good cry on Debbie's shoulder, he was all better & happy to stay home :)


Do you remember THIS face? This is my Auntie Marguerite. She is AWESOME! I remember when she went with Mum Adelaide & me, on my first walk EVER! It was -28 outside & she helped Mum bundle us up & off we went! We had so much fun that day...Adelaide & I were so small...Now we are ONE & so BIG!! !! I just LOVE this grown-up :) Having Auntie Marguerite at our party was special :) And guess what? She made us the most beautiful cards! Mum is going to frame them!!


Now HERE is something important to note:

I'm not the ONLY one with ears that Adelaide likes to stick her fingers in...Looks like poor William is getting the same "It's cake time" signal!!

At least I don't have a tail that she can pull !
I'd say William is a mighty patient cat!
Funny thing is...he seems to keep coming back for MORE...


My sister was right when she talked about how much fun it was to unwrap presents...I had a blast too...but such WORK! I was exhausted...
I didn't REALLY pretend to be sleeping so that I could have the toys all to myself...
I was just kidding about that...
BUT




Look at what Adelaide forgot to mention...
When she tried to wake me up, she JUMPED on me....Now I ask you, is THAT how YOU would want to be woken up??



I think NOT !!
I might have been a bit more receptive if she'd given me a gentle poke & a whisper in the ear...

(not a finger, a whisper)



Oh well...Mummy was right there to snuggle me...& please, do note who fell asleep first after the party was over...
Yes, that would be Adelaide passed out on Mummy's lap & me snuggling cheek to cheek with her!! Mummy has the SOFTEST cheeks in the North :)



Something great to note was that, all of the adults left one big piece of our birthday cake on the plate so, the next day (which was our REAL birthday) we got another serving of candles & cake!! Mum & Dad even sang that silly song to us again!

Oh, and Adelaide tried really hard to blow out the candle...I just focused on the cake, ensuring that I got my fair share!!



As you can see by Adelaide's face...it was still just as yummy the second day :)



And as you can see by mine...I got my piece too :) There's nothing better than eating 1st Birthday Cake with your very own hands TWO days in a row!!

I just can't wait for next years party!!
We'll make sure to invite you all!!

-------------------------------------

Adelaide's Addendum:

I didn't jump on my sister when she was sleeping...I tripped & fell...& besides I LOVE my little sister...I didn't want her to miss-out on anything!!!

& about William...I LOVE him too!! He's my buddy!! I'd never pull his tail! He, at times, offers it to me as a tool, to help me stand up or balance ...

Hay Sarah, what do you think about working on this report TOGETHER next year?

Oh my gosh! How did I miss reading your blog this week on such an exciting event!!! One year old!!! Time sure does fly eh?? Great pictures of the girls and the fun times of the day.

And a kid named Fisher??? You know, that is what I keep harassing my husband to let me name our next kid if it is a boy. Then we would have Hunter and Fisher!!! Now I can tell him it isn't that odd and that there is another kid out there with that name! Hurray! You have just made my day!!!!

ps. I made a second set of mushing booties that I will keep set aside for you if you want them!

Heather (aka Mum) said...

Just think Kara...your THIRD son could be named TRAPPER!! hehehe

Sadly I can't make it to town this weekend because a few big bills came in! My car just cost me $800 & my internet set up $500!! So we'll have to hook up next go around!! :(:(:(

hay...are you going to find out if this is a boyor girl BEFORE you pop?? & When are you to pop anyways?????

Matt, Kara and Hunter said...

ooohhh I like trapper!!

Ouchies on the bills- totally understand. We are saving to put super lights on our truck- $700! Hopefully some of our craft sale money will go towards that purchase.

And yep- we have an ultrasound on the 25th and hope to find out then. We found out with Hunter too. I can't wait to find out!!!

Do you guys want anymore?? Or is your house already filled with enough pitter patter of girls, kitties and puppies?

Heather (aka Mum) said...

LOL...ata 43 year of age...I'M DONE!! After the girls came, for more than a few months, I would have given anything to have one more,,,a boy,,, BUT...not I"ve come to my sences!!

The 800 for my car was mostly for driving lights too! OMG you'll LOVE them!! You should call Mike at Kluane Machine in the Junction & ask what kind he recomends...mine are WAY cheeper than the "Lightforce" & AWESOME...lots of my cost was in teh instalation 'causeof the plastic body on the car he had to design & weld a bracket for the lights!! You could save yourself a poop load of $$$ if you talk to him!! & STILL be just as happy!!!

Hay...did you get your new front loader too??

Matt, Kara and Hunter said...

I did get it!!!!! It is in the garage and won't get set up until Matt is back the middle of December :( So sad!!

We did find some great lights!! Matt got a nice wing and some cheaper lights too. He got everything he needed for just over 300. And I think a neighbour is going to help us install it all. I can't wait to have them!!! I want to see at least 5km ahead of me!
