We bought a trampoline from a family who was transferred to another community and didn't want to take this with them. It is jointly owned between us and our neighbours (they will be buying the enclosure for it. The boys LOVE it, and you can see all the pictures HERE

Joey: (in a sing song voice) "My birdie, my birdie"
Me: (to my friend Charlene sitting beside me) "Listen, Joey is singing about his birdie"
At this point my friend looks over her shoulder at Joey and starts laughing hysterically. When she is able to catch her breath (I'm talking tears down the face laughing here folks) she says
"He's not singing about his birdie, he's singing TO his birdie".
My wonderful, adorable little man had his birdie OUT of his pants and was singing to it. Oh the joys of having boys.

As speaking of vacation, we are now down to single digits. We leave in 8 more sleeps. For those who don't know, we are driving back to Halifax. We expect that it will take us 5 days. I am stocking up on movies and plug-n-play video games, and I borrowed the first Harry Potter from a friend of mine to read to Colby and Joey on the way there. Colby has seen the movies but has never read the books. I have been trying in vain to convince him that the books are better than the movies because more happens in the books, and I told him that I would prove it to him on the way to Halifax. I'm hoping that it sparks an interest in him so that he will want to read the rest of the books, which I plan on getting when I'm back in Halifax. I can't wait to leave, and I'm just as excited for the actual drive there as I am for getting to Halifax itself. It will be the first time that I can remember that we will get 5 days of uninterrupted Mommy-Daddy-Colby-Joey time. Did I mention it's only 8 more sleeps?
