Apologies...another lapse in blogging.

 Life has been so busy over the last few months.  I know life gets busy from time to time...and I have to say this spring has been one of our busiest seasons least if you don't count times when we've been moving.

But, just to give you an idea of all that's happened since the last time I ya go:

- Evalie, the most precious and wonderful part of our world has:
 turned one, started walking, started using all her signs and keeps learning more and more, is getting closer and closer to no longer breastfeeding (but still going with the before bed comfort feed), randomly started crawling even though she never did before, had pneumonia and her first ever round of antibiotics, broke her first two molars putting her teeth collection at 8 and counting, oh and did I mention that SHE TURNED ONE!?

- We've been traveling lots, and are planning on traveling even more:
 multiple trips to Oregon and multiple visits FROM Oregon family, a nice long vacation in Hawaii (Kauai is AWESOME!), trips to Victoria to visit friends, lots of wonderful houseguests from Ontario, and soon our own trip to's WONDERFUL getting to see so many people that we love!

- House-wise, there are always a million organization and cleaning projects.  We have been furniture shopping, completing little details on different rooms (soon I will blog about them so you can see how things have turned out!)...and I've been obsessively trying to get things into organizational systems that work for our space.  LOTS OF LABELS - thank you to my cricut for that!!  I find that much of my life is consumed with just trying to keep smashed bananas cleaned up off the floor and windows clear enough to see through.  The toilets, laundry, and dishes are all handled in an emergency-crisis manner...only when there's finally mold, nothing to wear, or a weird smell can I try to catch up with all of it. 

- Creatively, I've been working on lots and lots of scrapbooking.  I'm trying to get caught up just to the February mark, so I can then dive into the Hawaii trip and all these other wonderful visits and adventures I want to document.  With all the organizing and scrapbooking I've been doing, it turns out I TOOK WAY WAY WAY TOO MANY pictures in 2011...I have 2 albums of Evalie's 365 books to finish up, 4 regular scrapbook albums, one newborn pro album, and one family pro album...YUP 8 albums for the year of 2011!!!  That's nuts!  This has GOT to slow down.  I'm hoping to reign it all in and get myself back down to 2 albums per fiscal year.  

In short, thank you for still reading this blog.  I know it's pathetic, and terribly under-kept.  But, more importantly thank you for sharing in LIFE with me over these last number of months.  Thank you for being a part of our memory making through EXPERIENCES that we've shared.  I miss you all so much - those friends and family far away throughout this beautiful country and wide wide world.  Stick around for more fun stuff to come...well, once I am back from Oregon, Reno, and Ontario ;)

What a darling one-year-old! And I love the photo of her with Jenn.

Our daughter had a little girl just 12 days ago so we are in the new baby stage once again, alongside having so much fun with the 18-month-old cousin. Happy days!

Loved hearing about all your travels - good times indeed.

Well, it's about time you updated your blog.
What does B.L.O.G. stand for anyway?
It makes me think of being bogged down with one more thing to do. Which is why I don't have a BLOG and can get away with comments like the above.
Oh, and being your mom helps too.
I will never complain about getting to see another pic of our most beautiful Evaile. An absolute feast for my eyes, it is !
I will always love you, no matter how long the lapse.
Yours Truly, M

Well, at least you made it an entertaining post after all this terrible waiting ;) KIDDING! Thanks for the update, so lovely to see Evalie in person lately - she is a go-go-going!

The "2 albums per fiscal year" will come back in about 10 years, when things slow down a little with Evalie's learning curve! :-) Great to see you online again!
