Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics torch!

It went through my town today, so we went out to cheer it on :)
Waiting for the torch, which seemed like it took FOREVER!

There it is :)

and there it goes!

It was pretty neat to see it, as the last Olympics in Canada were 20 years ago, and I wasn't really old enough to pay it any mind, and who knows when the next olympics will be held in Canada!

An early Pressy

 My husband came home the other night with a bit of a grin on his face. He gave me a big speach about how he knew I wanted this item, and how he had SUCH a hard time finding it, as it was sold out all over, but he kept looking until he found it :)
 Then he handed me this: (well, not this exact one. This picture is from eBay)

He was completely right! I really DID want this gift! I'd actually bought it for other people on my list, but didn't get one for me. It's on the tree right now, reminding me of my wonderful husband when I see it, and it makes me smile!

Baby Lovebirds

My neighbour has lovebirds, and they had babies :) The Momma lovebird was feeding one way more than the other, so she took them out and is handfeeding them. I occasionally get to join in on the fun!
 here's a progress collage of them

And I think winter has officially arrived

It came with a blast... literally!  It's been howling for two days now, with a tremendous dump of snow. If this is what a good old fashioned blizzard is like, I kinda like it. I don't like the fact that G has to drive 45 mins to work in it, but I love the wild weather! I love the fact that my children are growing up in an area where it actually SNOWS, not like where we used to live and got a small skiff that promptly melted. I would bundle up the boys, take them outside and find the biggest drift I could so I could get some winter pictures. I sure don't have to do that here! The lake effect snowstorms from lake Huron give us plenty plenty.

Ryan was out shovelling yesterday morning

and this is what came down overnight. The porch was cleared off last night. You can see the swing is barely above the snowline :)

Hair Dye fun

Liam sometimes likes to have his hair dyed with a wash- out dye. Here's the process last night!

Snowy Morning

We got some snow yesterday which actually stayed :)
