Hello again. My hard day turned out to be an easy day as Ivy stayed home and Colby left at noon. My mom brought over some lunch and we looked at the new epicure products together. I am an Epicure Consultant and consumer (aka - I sell spices). It gives me a night out once in awhile and some great food. If you want to check out any info their web addy is http://www.epicureselections.com or you can call me for a catalogue. I should get the new ones tomorrow or Thursday.

I am now busy planning my own birthday party. Cam doesn't like to do this kind of stuff. I called the bakery for the cake and they asked what to write and I said, "Happy Birthday Kandace.", but then they asked my name. I didn't want to say I was ordering it for myself and I didn't want to lie so I said, "Cam will be picking it up." He owes me one now! JK. I hope the weather holds out so we can play Bocci (thanks for the Christmas gift Kelly & Kaarin) in the back yard. Cam already spray painted lines on the grass a week ago.

I have one other very important announcement. After 18 months of trying, I finally have a cherry pitter (thanks again Kaarin). I am very excited to make some Vareniki as soon as the cherries are out. It is a family favorite passed down from Cam's Gramma. Hope your day is going well.

Today was a pretty regular day. I had four kids to care for and they were all pretty well behaved. Tomorrow holds a new challenge, however. I will have Ivy (11 months) here with Colby (14 months), Kendra (20 Months), Kylie (3 yrs) and Kennedy (18 months). I am sure it will be fun but I am not prepared if they all go for a nap at the same time. I know that there are other problems in the world today but this is my biggest one at this time.

As for fun in my life we had a crazy weekend at the Hozack's. We went over on Saturday night to play games and hang out. We were waiting for the kids to go to sleep and found an experiment on Google video that we had to try. It involves diet Pepsi, a pack of Mentos and a huge explosion. Needless to say we made a mess and had a great time. We also borrowed Starfarers of Catan from some friends and are now addicted. We finished playing around 1:30 and got ready to pack up the girls to go home but Cam had lost his keys. After 30 minutes we gave up the search and spent the night. Kinda strange but we were tired. We parted ways in the morning to go to church and get lunch but met up again for some more Starfarers and a hockey draft.

So that was our weekend. I hope to get off to bed so I have lots of energy for the kids tomorrow. See you soon!

In the beginning...

I have suddenly been inspired by many friends' blogs to begin a chronicle of my life and those I hold dear. Life seems to speed by so fast that I neglect to share many important things with friends and family. I hope this blog will be the remedy needed. I will start as of today, April 22, 2006.

Kennedy is now 18 months old. She is very active and recently learned to climb up on top of her toy shelves which is quite dangerous. She likes to make jokes and take off her diaper.

Kylie is 3 years old and her favorite activities are gymnastics and crafts. She really wants a baby brother and asked me how babies get into tummies. That was fun!

Cam is 30 years old and bugging me about my long winded first post.

This is the beginning.
