Well with only nine days left before we leave for China you would think I could find better things to do with my time. Yesterday I spent almost the entire day moving my fish tank from the basement to the main level. I have been meaning to do this for months but 9 days before we leave and tones still to do seemed like the perfect time. I moved my fish tank to the basement in February of this year because we were re-doing the flooring and since they have been in the basement I have very badly neglected them.. The fish you see in the picture are the one's who survived being neglected for six months. For any of you out there who have never had to empty a fish tank and start all over,, it's not a fun job.
I hope to have a picture of Larkyn's room up for you guys this weekend. I have finished my part now David needs to put the crib together for me.

Holy Cow has it really been 7 days since my last post???? I blink for a second and the days seem to fly by. I seem to be getting no were some days. Well here's what's been up for the past seven days.
I finally started Larkyn's room, tomorrow Reegan is going to a friends house so I will get all the painting finished.
I found and purchased her crib... I must have changed my mind a hundred times... which colour, how much the style the shape etc., etc., I was soo close to actually choosing a black crib... the only reason I didn't was because all the other accessories were white and there was no back in her room. So I choose the one colour I really had hoped to stay away from... A white 3 in one convertible crib, it's very cool I wish they had these when Ryker was a baby.
Ryker man came home on Sunday, he has been in Ontario for two weeks. He was staying with our good friends Stephen and Donna and there four kids. Ryker had a great time, he got to knee board for the first time. His only complaint was that Donna is a very healthy cook and there was far to much flake seed and brown bread for his liking. The last two days he spent with my Sister and her husband. All in all he had a great time!!!!!
I did managed while he was away to get into his room with a garbage bag, my god that boy can live like a pig,, actually let me correct that because I know that pigs are very clean animals. I found candy wrappers, old pop cans, there's some sort of sticky substance under his bed, "VERY SCARY" To look at his room you would think it was very clean, but once I started to pull things away from the walls the real truth was told.
As for our trip we are getting things arranged and so far not to many problems... David is over the moon at the fact that he managed to use our Asia Miles to upgrade us to Business on the flight over. He is now trying to get us upgraded for the way home anyone out there who has some pull with Cathy Pacific?????
That's it for now... Pictures of Larkyn's room will be posted soon.

So how sweet is this. Reegan wanted to do something for her baby sister. Because she likes to draw I suggested that she draw a picture for Larkyn and I would give it to her when we are in China.

Well once again the Fedex man came and once again my dear sister Debbie managed to surprise me with these great pieces of clothing for Larkyn. Miss Reegan was feeling left out you see in the past the Fedex man came with clothes for her from Aunt Debbie. But not to worry, two days later a package came for Reegan with some great outfits.
Your the GREATEST AUNT DEBBIE!!!!
PS My sister is feeling a bit left out of the blog world. She has a blog but no one goes on to leave comments. She doesn't have any children but they have the most wonderful black lab cross and to her Sable is her child, so for all my friends out there who love there pets, please check out her blog she would love to hear from pet owners as well as non-pet owners here's her link http://debinasdiary.blogspot.com

Well we have lived in Calgary for 15 years. We have been to the stampede grounds about 4 times for the rides and cotton candy. We have been to the parade about 6 times. But I had yet to attend the Grand Stand Show, that was until last night. Holy Cow!!! What a fantastic show. If the performances which ranged from dancers, singers, dirt bike jumps and flips, a comedian didn't empress you then the 30 minutes of none stop fireworks should have. Never have I seen such fireworks... There were the best of the best, Unbelievable!!!!!

Well we had our fourth Knight Canada Day BBQ. The weather was perfect the food was fantastic and the fireworks ... well what can I say David honey once again did a great job. For the past four years we have hosted a Canada BBQ with family and friends... This was our first year that we had the pool... So we played games, swam in the pool and we all worked after super and put the kids trampoline up. Then we sat back and watch the fireworks.
Family is the best!!!!
Enjoy the pictures!!!
