Parenting is to marriage what hazing is to fraternities. It’s brutal, but it makes you more loyal.

I had to share that one…
Ken and I took today to do a major clean of some of the apartment.. we hope to finish up Wednesday. Tomorrow we are off to Edmonton and a little Halloween party. The weather is VERY chilly so the twins will have to go and see Grandma Anna at work in sweats over their basketball/soccer uniform shorts. Emanuel – well I will change him out of his costume before we head off to the city. I have the cutest "I love my Mummy" shirt to wear while he is out of costume plus an orange sleeper for the ride home. I have a white shirt with a pumpkin on it and I bought Halloween socks today hehe… Ken, well he is going to go as a father.
It is so hard to believe Emanuel will be 9 months old on the 3rd. Where has the time gone??? So far we have gotten to the point where we have agreed that it will not be until August 2007 that we try for the 3rd and final time to get pregnant. We would be having 5 kids in total if we had not had twins right away. 4 suits us just fine, one more chance for a girl LOL… anyone know any tricks to determine the sex ???
So with Halloween tomorrow that leaves Christmas (no Thanksgiving in November for us Canadians) to get ready for. Hopefully I can pin Ken down on the gifts we want to get for everyone. Shipping is always a pain in the arse and with us waiting until this past weekend to do our Christmas card photos we are going to have to be on top of things to get everything out in time.
Speaking of pictures… the twins did NOT do well this time round. As soon as they got in the little room with the camera they FREAKED! So we worked on them and got them to at least not cry in the pictures and left it up to Emanuel to give a little smile. After we got our card pictures they went to play with some of the props – THEN they smile of course… Emanuel took the rest of the pictures. I did not get copies of them all – just my free 8X10 that I get with the smile care I had to purchase a new one off… 110 cards (I got 10 free) and then I got the disc with the proofs on it. So I will have to post them up here when Ken sends them to my laptop – I do not have a disc drive. Almost 100.00 in total but well worth it – not that Ken would agree LOL BUT we do not get them until the middle of August… we are hoping to get the labels printed off this year for envelopes… Ken is going to set up the template and I will enter the addresses – so if any of you have changed your addresses recently LET ME KNOW! And then I need to make out the Christmas letter – I think I will do one this year since it has been rather eventful what with Emanuel being born and all.
Well so much to do so little time… Happy Halloween tomorrow – keep an eye out and I will post a pic of the kids and finally let you all know who Emanuel dressed up as!
