Baby, Beautiful, Banessa

Here are some more pictures of my precious nephew!! The kids in Quebec always called me Banessa before they could pronounce the "v" in my name and somehow it has caught on with a lot of people as my nickname. So now Chad has labelled me as Aunty "Banessa", with a strong emphasis on the "B". haha.. I will embrace my newly popular nickname! :)

Cooking, Crazy, Cool

This week my life group had a cook-off to make a bunch of food for a couple of families. It was great mass compiling the grocery list and figuring it all out and then getting everyone together for the actual cooking. What a great time we spent together as well!! :) And I think the food all turned out pretty good! Makes me want to do something like this for my freezer! (I just need a bigger freezer I guess).

Family, Fun, Furry

First off thought I would start with a picture of cuteness.. aka Lizzy... She's as cute as ever. and becoming better at learning the rules of the house..

Last weekend we had a family fun day. WE started at Castle Fun Park and played some mini golf. And then afterwards we went to a park for a pizza lunch and playing with the kids. I got to take a bunch of pictures of everyone, so thought I'd post a few. And remember if anyone ever wants fun shots done, let me know!!

Our mini golfing clan

ONLY 6 days until d-day for my nephew or niece to arrive... WOOHOO!!!!!!!!

Puppy, Poopy, Pretty

I impulsively bought a puppy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Her name is Lizzy and she is a cross between a poodle and chihuahua. SO cute! Except she pooes and pees everywhere. Dang. If anyone ever wants to come over and play with her, come on over! :)

She's 1.6 pounds and will probably get up to 3 pounds. Lots of fun to play with and watch bound everywhere
