Our life lately

We had a fun and scandalous night with Erika on the night of her stagette party. We played truth or dare, wandered the streets of Granville and Robson, danced all night, ordered pizza at 2 am......it was fun! We even dressed Erika up into the "perfect" bride.



We've been to the island twice in the last few months top visit Sarah, John, Levi and Zoe. We are such a good auntie and uncle to these tots!!! On both trips we experienced the slow pace that life offers when you take 2 kids under the age of 3 for a walk. Zoe was ONLY interested in picking flowers.

Healthy eating lately with lot's of colours on our plate. I've been experimenting with new recipes and eating vegetables I haven't eaten too much before like squash, turnips, sweet potatoes ect. Notice the pickle? This is a staple in our house right now!

Halloween came and is now gone. the only person that dressed up here was TK. He's dressed up like a cowboy...."wrong" type of hat for the occasion.


Here's some belly shots from 16 or 17 weeks (can't remember)

Seahawks game..VIP treatment!!

A couple weeks ago we got a phone call from our friend on a Saturday night asking us if we wanted free tickets to a seahawks game plus a complimentary tailgate party pre-game. We went for it and picked him and Jamie's brother, Will up at 7 am the next morning and headed for Seattle!!


Not your standard tailgate party. Nice couches, flat screen tv's broadcasting pre-game, all you can eat ribs/potato salad/various treat and all you can drink beer and soda.


Seat upgrade to the lower bowl. Amazing!!!!! Even though the hawks lost...

Diary of a preggo woman

It's so fun telling people our wonderful news. Finally I don't have to keep this a secret anymore. At some points I wanted to tell strangers just so I could tell SOMEONE, I told my dentist, my neighbor..who are THEY going to tell anyways? We did tell our parents and siblings earlier too.

I even told my grade 3 class the news and this is what they had to say:
-Mrs. Graham, aren't you too OLD to have a baby?
-Mrs. Graham, can you bring your baby with you to school? (to which they ALL thought that after I have my baby, I'm going to bring my baby with me to class to continue to teach them. I had to tell them that I won't be coming back..that I need to be with my baby for awhile.)

Everyday I feel little hands touching my belly, commenting on how much the baby must be growing. There's just so much.....LOVE. It's such a good place to be in right now, surrounded by people who support me and the baby to be.

And my emotions. What a roller coaster. I can't read PEOPLE magazine without bursting into not tears..but SOBS. One time my husband had to console me by reassuring me that not ALL Hollywood couples are breaking up. "Look at this couple...and THAT couple. if they can make it work, anyone can!"

Some belly shots: 13 weeks

Spring 2009 Highlights

Since moving to our wonderful neighborhood in Mount Pleasant (Vancouver), we have taken up cycling!! Last weekend Jamie and I went on a bike outing with Hilary, Adrian and Keegan to Van Dusen Gardens. We had a delicious picnic lunch/frisbee/nap.



Here's a picture of Jennica's new hybrid bicycle: The SWinn Circuit


A couple weeks ago (the long BC weekend) Jamie and I took a trip to Seattle/Tacoma to see the city and to stay with cousin Jake in his newly purchased loft apartment.

We went to the Museum of Glass, had some visits with the fam and a special highlight was the underground tour in Seattle!





Jamie and I celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary by going to the lovely Canery Restaurant on the Vancouver waterfront. Very yummy....and fun!
