Big Boy Bed!!

A couple weeks ago Kaylum figured out how to escape from baby jail, aka his crib. We knew it was coming, both girls were just over 2 when they made the leap, but we were dreading that last little bit of baby-hood going. OK, truthfully, I was dreading giving up the only place that held the boy in one spot for hours on end. Now he has free reign to roam the house!
So on Sunday while Sean was working I pulled out the toddler bed from the crawl space and slapped it together. This bed has accommodated all 3 of our kids, in either our house or my parents.
Kaylum is soooo happy to have a Big Boy bed! He asks me to come upstairs with him to look at his bed. And he loves being able to get in and out.
This week has gone well with the transition. We were fearful as Kylie's transition was horrible and Keira's was easy. Kaylum's has been middle of the road. He gets out some nights, he falls out some nights and he sleeps well other nights. He gets up and torments the girls in the morning and this morning, I caught him and Kylie reading books together in it!
So bye bye babyhood. The only thing left are diapers.....and we are working on that!

Robbie Burns

On Friday the girls were invited to dance at a Robbie Burn Luncheon for my old dancing teacher's school. We went off to the Dogwood Pavilion to dance for the seniors there. It was a nice program with some toasts, piping and of course dancing. There probably was Haggis, but that was before we got there.

The girls are always a hit with the seniors. And well, how can they not be? Look how cute they are! They also got to dance with the Mayor of Coquitlam! I thought that was pretty neat. They didn't really understand. Mayor Stewart was a great sport getting up on stage with the girls. You can tell he was very serious and concentrating hard on the steps (see his tongue sticking out?).

The girls also danced at another Burn tea on Friday for our dance school but I didn't get a chance to take any pictures. They were stars of that show as well and when we left and walked past all the seniors, they clapped for them. So cute!!

Hot Wheels

We are now a Hot Wheels family. "Play cars?" is a common question around here these days and my parents have gladly obliged Kaylum with Christmas gifts of cars and tracks. My Dad insists there are too many "girl toys" in our house and I suspect he is trying to balance things out!


Have you seen Avatar yet??

Sean and I went and it was fabulous! It was our first 3D movie and wow! I've seen the 3D shows at Disneyland but this was different. The 3D was almost subtle, by that I mean they weren't intentionally hurling things at your face to get a reaction. After awhile you almost forgot about the 3D. I absolutely recommend seeing it. But buy your tickets early!


This is an activity that Kaylum can't get enough of. Whenever we have the sink full of water to do dishes, he's there with a chair helping us (ok mainly Sean). He loves wiping and dumping water from one place to another. And of course, soaking the floor. This is where those Sham Wows! come in handy!
