New Blog

We have a new blog site! In an attempt to stop separating the kids blogs, we have made one blog for the whole family. The first post is very long-winded, but I had a lot to catch up on.




Check it out at http://www.black-in-action.blogspot.com/



I will be making this a restricted blog so that I know who is looking at it, but do not let this deter you. Send me a quick note and let me know if you enjoy reading our blog - I will add your e-mail address to our list.

The Wiggles!


Shaylah and I had the pleasure of going to see the Wiggles last Friday night.  Shaylah has been a big fan of theirs (almost as much as Dora) and she was SO EXCITED to go and see them in person.  They put on a great show and she was not disappointed.  We were on the floor in an aisle, so she was able to get out of her seat and dance for the entire show.  She even got to give Sam a "high five"!  They performed many of their favorite hits and a few from the new album.  What a fun evening for both of us.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Half Marathon


Helping Daddy warm-up before the race.I am definitely late with this post.  Johnny ran a half marathon a couple of weeks ago and we went to cheer him on!  Shaylah was given his medal.....for being the best cheerer.  She yelled at and encouraged everyone that ran by, but not as much as with her own Daddy.  We were all very proud of him.  Luckily, Johnny was just fast enough to finish the race before the runners were re-routed an extra kilometre around a bear on the course.  Way to go Johnny!

Vacation

Shortly after we picked Shaylah up from her first day of school, Johnny and I jet-setted away to the most wonderful vacation spot. It was the most relaxed I can remember being in a long time. Here are a few shots of the beautiful scenery in this most amazing place!


Our "limo" ride onto the island.





Sonora Resort
















Can you see why this place was so wonderful? We had four days of the most amazing food and time to spend with each other. We went fishing, had massages, played (simulated) "golf", played tennis, hot-tubbed, had a cooking lesson and enjoyed marine life. Oh and did I mention how much we ate? I never went to a meal hungry, but managed to always finish my plate. The food was that good! Bu with all the peace and quiet, it was still great to come home to three little faces screaming "Mom! Dad!" when we came in the door.




First Day of Pre-school


Shaylah had her first day of pre-school last Tuesday and it was a big success. I think I was the only mother that did not stay with her child, but Shaylah was so excited to be going "by herself". She was happy to wear her new dress from Grammy and to be able to bring her backpack with a snack in it. It looks like I am going to need to get a new display board for all of the artwork that is coming home with her!

Daddy took us to the zoo!

We decided to take advantage of a couple of days off and do something fun with the kids. The Greater Vancouver Zoo is a place we only visit once a year, but the kids sure love it!

Helping the babies celebrate their big day!


Shaylah is an amazing big sister. She loves to help her babies, give them kisses, tickle them and make them laugh. She was so happy to celebrate them on Saturday and was not jealous of their gifts at all. She picked out special new water bottles for each of them and sang Happy Birthday to them when they woke up. Thanks for making the day wonderful for your brother and sister!

A new game? I hope not!
