[Celebration] — Labour Day

Can you say food overload much? Yes – all the dim sum our friends brought over was crazy – we all had two meals out of it. Lunch & dinner – I had to make sure they finished it up before leaving our place! It was a fun & relaxing day – main goal was to catch up with everyone. Relaxing led to being lazy! But it’s all good! Hard to get everyone together unless it’s special occasions – so it was awesome getting to catch up!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Summer Fun] — Chuck E Cheese

Chuck E Cheese for these two munchkins was a bonus treat for them. Well minus one that was mainly napping. My girlfriend suggested a fun day out at Chuck E Cheese for the kids. Aren’t they lucky or what?

Glad they got to have fun and bond. We didn’t get to see Layla much this summer because of her full day pre-school. Till next time!

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Nelson’s abirthday

Another year older & another year wiser. So glad we got to spend another year on this special day with Munchkin#1s godfather. It has become somewhat of a tradition for us.

We didn’t get to spend much time due to camp the next day but we did spend quality time. I’ve know this guy since my college years which I was 19 years old back then. I can’t believe it’s been 10 amazing years knowing him. Thanks for being genuine & just being you. That’s what we adore of you – simply being yourself!

Have a SPECIAL day!!!

[Summer Fun] — Lake Wilcox Park

Fun day at Wilcox Lake Park with the kiddos. It was our first time here and boy was it busy! It’s a nice park with picnic area, barbecue area, park area, and Water Park. A pathway to walk near the lake too. Too bad we didn’t have enough time – Hubby wanted to take a walk around the lake area.

It was a nice little get together before all the kids start school again. Hopefully next time it won’t be as busy!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Summer Fun] — Day Out With Thomas, Uxbridge

Fun day out with Thomas was planned a few months before summer break. I think we purchased the tickets in April? Crazy mommies we are! Anything for our kid’s right? Thank goodness for good weather overall. It didn’t rain long and the sun was shining bright and hot.

I didn’t tell Munchkin#1 where we were going till he found out himself. I just couldn’t bare listening to “are we there now!” Lol. Mom life much?

My thoughts of this ‘Day out with Thomas’ was quite disappointing. I expected a little more than what it is. The train had disappointing decorations. What was attracting was only the head of the train. The activities they had on the street was alright. A short little street.

Overall the kids enjoy experiencing it together and had fun. For the parents – we don’t feel like it’s worth the money. Have you been there? What are your thoughts? Comment below to share!

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Carmen & Richard’s Gender Reveal Party

What a blessing to be invited to this Gender Reveal party of our good friends! A new member of the family means a new chapter of their lives.

I was so anxious finding out what the gender was! I wanted to do a gender reveal party when we found out what munchkin#2 was but the excitement to share killed us and we couldn’t keep it in! So kudos to this couple for keeping it a secret for a few months!

Congratulations on having a baby girl! We cannot wait to meet this little precious angel of yours!

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!

[Celebration] — Joelle’s 4th Birthday Party

 

We celebrated Princess Joelle’s fourth birthday early July. The theme was everything pink & purple & princess-y.

The adults get to catch up & eat while the kids did their own thing! Which was perfect! I love how the kids get to celebrate birthdays together every year! What a blessing it is to have each other as good friends!

Cheers to another year older & stay healthy forever Princess Joelle! Can’t wait to celebrate many more birthdays with you!

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Dana & Bekir’s Wedding

 

The wedding happened the next day of the bachelorette. The fun continues. It was our first time attending a Muslim wedding & it was super interesting. The bride looked gorgeous that day! Well she’s always gorgeous any day!

It’s Munchkin#2s second time attending a wedding & I lost count how many wedding Munchkin#2 attended. Every wedding we attend – we bring our kids. We like them to experience it too. It might be hectic at times but welcome to parenthood right? Gotta take the goods with the bads. This time – both our Munchkin behaved very well – no tantrums or anything! Munchkin#1 kept asking for Auntie Dana – how cute!

Food was amazing & we enjoyed our time at the wedding. After the main course – we headed off early. We left around 10:00PM because the kids were getting tired. By that time – people were dancing too.

 It was a fun & exciting new chapter to witness of theirs. I got a little teary during the day too. All the weddings I go to – I get teary because it’s such a wonderful event. A life changing event! Also – it reminds me of my special day.

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Dana’s Bachelorette Party

Celebrated my girlfriends’ bachelorette with her a few weeks back. What a blessing to be witnessing this new chapter of her life with her.

I’ve known this girl since my grade 12 year when I transferred high school. That is over 10 years ago. We didn’t always kept in touch. We probably see each other twice a year. Sometimes friendship isn’t about how long you know someone. It’s the quality of the friendship. When we connect – it always feel like the good old times. Lots of memories with this girl for sure!

        

 It was so much fun helping her plan her wedding & shop for party things. Always good to catch up. We had a night of fun and food!

It was so nice meeting some of her relatives and seeing the other side of her new family too. What a blessing!

This is her and I at my bachelorette back in 2011, June 11th.

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Jayden] — The Past 4 Birthdays • Special Memories

Since tomorrow is Munchkin#1’s 5th birthday – I thought I would do a little reflecting on throughout all his birthday celebrations.

First birthday was Winnie the pooh theme & he had no idea what’s going on really except seeing a lot of aunties, uncles, and little friends.

Second birthday was the Sesame Street theme. This birthday he enjoyed playing with his little friends.

Third birthday was the Thomas & Friends theme. He was very shy this birthday.

Fourth birthday was the Mickey Mouse theme. This birthday was the MOST exciting birthday for him because he understood that it was his birthday and he was very very very excited!

It had been an amazing parenthood life for his daddy and I – we cannot wait to celebrate many more birthdays, special events, and daily life events with this little baby. He’s forever our baby. Can you guess what theme is he having this year? Comment below to guess!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Christmas Celebration With The Girls

Finally getting into blogging about the Christmas events. Reason why I’m so late at updating my blog is because after Christmas – I was sick with the flu for 3 weeks and I took so time off as well. I’m back now with super late events that happened over a month ago. Better late than never right?

Celebrated Christmas with the ladies on December 23rd, 2016 at our place. We celebrate with each other every year and this year was no different. Dinner started quite late because they both had work. If I remember correctly – dinner started around 9ish. Haha but that’s alright. It’s so hard arranging time to celebrate due to our busy schedules. It was so much fun catching up with each other and just relaxing. They enjoyed playing with the kiddos too.

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Zach’s 5th Birthday Party

Celebrated Zachariah’s 5th Birthday on December 31st 2016 at his new home. Another year older – why are these kids growing so fast? That also means us parents are getting old! He had a small little party that day. I wasn’t sure if I was going to attend due to the flu but due to convincing from his mommy – I did go. How can I miss his fifth birthday right? The kids had a lot of fun playing with each other while the parents did some catching up!

There goes another birthday – cheers to many more birthdays! I think this year is like the fourth year celebrating his birthday with him – birthdays are always so special. It’s another milestone!

 

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!

[Celebration] — Layla’s 3rd Birthday Party

Celebrated this cutie’s pie birthday on December 11th, 2015 at Miliken Mills Community Center. There was so much delicious food – we were all stuffed. This venue takes me back to over 5-6 years ago where I hosted my first baby shower. I remember it was on January 14th, 2012. Reason why I remember is because my due date was two month after.

The kids had a plenty of fun decorating gingerbread cookies and running around.

Another year older – another year smarter. Wishing Layla a lifetime of happiness and good health! Thank you for having us witness another birthday of yours!

 

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Angela & Danny’s Wedding 11/05/16

Celebrated my girlfriends’ wedding on November 5th 2016. It was such a memorable and happy event. We attended church & reception with both kids for the first time. Church was nice and sweet. I always tear a little when the bride walks in. It brings me back to my memorable day some 5 years ago.

It was Munchkin#2s first time attending a wedding and Munchkin#1s many times attending a wedding. The church part was fine until the dinner party came along. Munchkin#1 was bored and tired. I got to admit that it was a little late for him.

It was such an honor to witness this special day of hers and her now husband.

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!
