I have been busy. My baby has been busy. There is lots on my mind these days, big things. I will share these things with you soon, but for now lets play some catch up and you can see what my family has been up to!
It was that time of year again for the annual 1920's gala! We had loads of fun, I wanted to wear something new, but time escaped me, so I am in the same outfit! But I still think I look smashing! It was a great night! And for the first time ever I won a silent auction item!!! I bid $130 on a $1000 photography package including a photo shot, and I won! Nice hey!
We took another trip to the farmers market, its a weekly tradition now! And I stocked up on blueberries and froze a whole load of them for the winter. I also cooked a whole free range chicken and then made some soup stock out of the bones, this is so hardcore house wife stuff, I am so proud!
Then there was thanksgiving. We went to Innisfail, where my aunt lives and she rented out a hall for all of us to gather in. There was lots of food, fun and games. Ivy stayed up way past her bed time and we filled our bellies past their maximum thresholds!
Oct 15th! Day before Keith's birthday. I had LOADS planned for this day. It was a Thursday , but I got his boss to secretly give him the day off! We woke up and feed Ivy cereal for the first time! She is now nearly 6 months old! She loved the stuff, gobbling down the whole teaspoon of nasty tasting goop!
The next surprise was a visit to the Irene Besse concert hall with its 9ft grand piano, which I rented out from 2-4 for Keith to play with! He had a blast banging on the ivory's and Ivy and I had a great time listening.
Irene Besse herself came to check out the party and they even brought us chocolate cake!
And the biggest event of the day, a HUGE surprise party for Keith! I rented out a ballroom in the Jubilee Auditorium and had it catered and arranged for Keith's soul band to be the entertainment all night, all without Keith having a clue! He was so surprised he was in tears! The party was sooo fun and soo awesome and the band sounded fabulous! Ivy was once again out to late and we have been paying the price since, she is super cranky and grumpy (we both just got over a bad cold too!).
So life has been busy, fun and awesome. My hubby is now 30, nicknamed old balls but things are great.
