So Kim shall be getting two signo unibal white pens in the mail asap from moi and although I will in no way hold her to it I would not mind getting some "I miss my homeland" crack cocaine in return. There are MANY thing and MANY people I miss in Canada....
See the layout below for evidence of this...note that these are THINGS I miss.....if I could pack up my family or better yet get back home more often I would be set....
In no particular order I miss
Crispy Crunch Bars,
Aero (especially carmel ones)
Crunchie bars,
ketchup and all dressed chips
crispers (all dressed)
zesty cheese doritos (and NO they do not have those here....they have 7 different flavours that we did not have in Canada but no zesty)
Mackintosh Toffee
seriously the list is endless...
and I think the hardest thing is that when you are homesick....and missing somewhere so badly it makes your chest want comfort's highly disturbing when they don't have BBQ sauce at McDonalds for your chicken nuggets.....because it's just so not home.
So while I miss the people and places I used to know....I know that they can not be instlanty transported here the way that having a crispy crunch bar makes me feel at home. So when I go home I stockpile....also evidenced in the LO below. I'm so excited to go home for Christmas this year....I think we will be able to stay for almost two weeks...and I can't wait to see snow!!!

OK enough of that....I'm really not nearly as homesick as I just sounded...and Kim I really was kidding about the pens being held hostage. After all what are friends for?

This little gem is our new niece Kaitlyn Elizabeth LeFevre.
She is a new beautiful part of our family and we are so glad.
We had some moments of prayer before she was born because she was in distress and we are so happy that she came happy and healthy into our lives.

So the situation with the....interestingly stupid.....woman from Saturday has not had any closure yet. I feel better about it just because i've decided how i'm going to deal with it but she's SO not on my Christmas list!
So the other major drama lately is that we might be buying a house. We are checking out our options but it looks like we are going to go for this cute little starter home in a good neighborhood that needs some work and TLC.....most of the work is cosmetic...and things like putting in a cooling system because WE LIVE ON THE SURFACE OF THE SUN!
My friend Nicole may be having a baby soon....she's not due for another month (the baby would be considered full term though because he's big) and she's dialiated!!! I'm so excited! We are so ready to welcome the little guy into our life!!! So that makes TWO of my sister-in-laws that are expecting....send out some prayers for April if you are reading this...she needs them. And three of my friends that are fun!!!
Babies babies all around and not one for me!!
I guess things happen in thier own time...and maybe I just need to make some space in my life and then that will happen.
On that note I leave you with a picture of my adorable nephews....who I love so dearly!!!
P.S.....maybe not!! It is not letting me upload that so......i'll try again in the morning!!

Today was an interesting day. Part of the day was really good....scrapbooking with friends and just relaxing. And then.....someone ruined it pretty quickly. I have a really bad habit of letting other people's bad behaviour affect my mood....not a good thing. I just feel like this woman drop-kicked me when I was already feeling down and out. It's something that I really just need to learn to deal with....refusing to let other people determine my mood. My dad used to the thermostat....not the thermomoter. ANYWAYS! I mailed Nathan his birthday present today. It will so not get to him by Monday (his birthday) but it's on it's way and i'll call and send him all my love over the phone lines on the actual day. I love that kid!! Who knew little brothers could grow up to be so cool?
The best thing about today was that Eldon was really supportive after the person was such a jerk. Moving to Arizona has been such an adjustment....learning to live a whole different life than I had been living. He is so worth it!

I so never got around to posting something pretty. What I did do though is post links to most of the blogs I read. So I thought that writing a blurb about why I like each blog would be pretty too!

So I have a blog now.....I guess that's what happens when you want to comment on someone elses blog and get a username. I've been toyine around with the idea of a blog for awhile and I guess now if the time.
When I get home i'll see about posting something pretty!
