Lots of Spills and Sunshine

Lots of Spills and Sunshine

Friday, February 6, 2009



Because Todd and I love each other, that is why we decided to just
We were not able to have his daughter Rachel come out and we wanted all our kids with us or none, as not to leave any one out, so we choose to sneak off Saturday morning, get married, have lunch and enjoy one another! Simple, no stress, and to the point!We are however planning a little shindig for our family and friends, I will keep you posted.
Because the little muchkins are turning 1 on Feb 9th so we decided to have their Bday celebration/I survived 1yr party a couple weeks early so Todd would be able to be there.

Because I am a crazy party mamma who has a personal challenge with herself to create a better cake every year! Now I seriously have my work cut out for me cause that means 4 wicked cakes a year! As a side note; all parts of the cake are edible!

Because I made adorable stand up CIRCUS themed cookies, and wouldn't let Ty and Rylie touch the kitchen table, in fear they might fall over! We ended up losing 1 giraffe, 1 seal and 1 gorilla, very tragic.

Because only Livie-lou can smile like this!

Because the cutest giggles come from this little rugrat! I know I need to clean my hutch in the back, I have made more of an effort with dusting since this photo!

Because wearing a fresh new pair of shark undies is a lovely treat!

Because no matter how much you know about sharks, you can always learn more.

Because CATerpillars naturally have cat tails!

Because a princess isn't complete without her...


Because two little girls are better than one.
Because just twelve short months ago I walked into my two bedroom apartment on Dufferin Crescent with a fresh C-Section, a broken heart, 10lbs 13oz of newborns, 1 big brother, 1 big sister and a living room floor full of cheerios needing to be vacuumed. When I think back to those days I am so thankful for the blessing of "obliviousness" that I was given. When I prayed during my pregnancy for strength, I had no idea how the Big Guy upstairs was gunna help me. I quickly began to realize that he seriously has made it so I am the last person to connect with the fact that I have a lot on my plate. I love his sense of humor! Throughout my whole pregnancy while everyone told me I couldn't do it, it never once crossed my mind. When they said it was going to be hard, I was like -well I am sure I am not the only one-! I am thankful I was able to vacuum those cheerios 3 days after a c-section and live off 25min a night of sleep for 6 weeks. I am grateful for Tammy and Bob for coming over everyday and picking up my dirty laundry and bringing it back folded. I am thankful for all my blessings. I am especially grateful for Todd! He is the most wonderful caring man and father to the kids, he is my best friend and I am so excited to see my life unfold.
it just keeps getting better

wow chelsea. Why people find it helpful to say you can't do it is beyond me. Good for you for doing it all. I have learned the hard way that all babies are a blessing no matter how they get here or what the timing is. The Lord knows what's best for us and we can trust His judgment. It does just get better. Congratulations. I wish you the very best, you deserve it.
