Time is just FLYING!

Who has time to blog anymore? Kids, work, chores, errands... not to mention catching up sleep are what's keeping me away from blogging.  But that's perfectly ok with me! I blog when I can, and I do it for myself.

So we're into the month of March! Just last month we were celebrating Ericka's 3rd birthday! Well, soon... we'll be celebrating Evan's 1st birthday and it's an exciting milestone!

Learning from Ericka's first three years and attending other kid's birthday parties, we have realized as parents, sometimes these birthday parties are done for the parents themselves rather than the child. That's fine! It's a social event for parents and friends to get together to enjoy food and some cake! However, I think it can be a bit overwhelming for the birthday child. It all depends on the child, so it's your job as parents to recognize if they're suited for big birthday bashes at such a young age or if a small family gathering is just what they need. Whatever you decide, just make sure the birthday child is well rested before hand or you'll have a major epic meltdown at the party.. The song "It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to" will be sung in the background if that's the case!!

That was a quick December

Wow... Did December just come and go in a snap of a finger? Sure seems like it to me!
Or maybe it's because of the lack of sleep I'm getting that every day seems like one big long day to me??? :)

There were a lot of fun and interesting things that happened in December, hence why the lack of posts.

First, our wonderful friends Pat and Jim Crichton were married at the end of November. Norm and I travelled to Windsor to celebrate the day with the lovely couple. It was the first time we left Evan overnight (at my sister's) and the first time Norm and I would have a 'night' together in a long time.

Oh November

It's been quite a busy and tiring November for me.

I haven't had a chance to update the blog as much as I would like to. I haven't even had a chance to post my "Look back at meningitis" blog I wrote weeks ago. I'm still looking it over (when I get the chance) and adding or deleting to it.  It's a long one but I hope to get it posted this week.. just to say I did.

The reason for all my exhaustion?
Ha ha! Was there any doubt?

His 4th tooth is cutting his gums and like his previous 3 teeth, he is not dealing with the pain well. Up at all hours of the night.  Crying in obvious pain from his teeth.  Poor thing.

Greek-Style Chicken Recipe

If you're a fan of chicken... especially chicken thighs, then this is a recipe for you!

Ever since my best friend, Celine, introduced me to this "greek-style chicken" slow cooker recipe, I've been in love. It's so quick to prepare and very tasty!! I have to say, I've probably made this recipe over 100 times now,  I don't even need the recipe to look at.  I just eyeball all the measurements and toss them into the slow cooker. 

Ericka truly loves this chicken recipe. She can't get enough of the chicken plus the broth with the rice. She's always asking for more.  And when my toddler eats, it makes mama very happy!
