January 18th - I'm Baaack!!

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Thought I gave up blogging for a minute didn't you? I seriously considered it, but it's one of the few ways the only way I can keep loved ones 'in the know' without spending my evenings chatting on the phone and sending mass e-mails.

I wasn't expecting to take such a long break from blogging (oh happy belated blogiversay Saige Wisdom), but I took my misbehaving laptop to Rent-A-Geek for a "PC oil change" (their terminology not mine) and the problem turned out to be a failing hard drive - yikes! Thankfully Dell has a great warranty and everything (minus Photoshop CS4) was recovered after 10 very long days.

Ask me about my most beloved possessions and I'd likely say pictures of my family. No word of I lie I have close to 50,000 photos saved on this computer of mine and have never gotten around to backing them up. Almost losing them was a much needed smack in the face and I'm happy to report that the 'catastrophe that almost was' resulted in copies of our photos being transferred to a new external hard drive for safety and storage.

Speaking of photos - I have a mittful to share with you.

Earlier this month Saige turned 2 and like a repeat of last year, got violently sick the following night. I'm talking vomit every 15 minutes for 8 hours straight sick. It was my first time dealing with a pukey child and my gag reflex was fully engaged. Poop I can handle, but the smell of barf makes me want to follow suit. 

 
Happy 2nd Birthday Saiger!!

slippers, cards and grammas

If you can believe it Chickies Cupcakes was closed Saige's birthday week so I was forced to bake my own mini-cupcakes topped with our birthday girl's favourite... mini 'mellows 

I love her bangs in this one - she looks so grown up.

 
Look closely... we had to pop the top button of her jeans due to all her cupcake and hot dog eating.

The party was just a small family affair on her actually Thursday birthday
M.I.A. was Auntie Becca and Caleb courtesy of the nasty stomach bug going around

As a special birthday treat we let her watch part of her DVD from Grandma & Grandpa Knol before bedtime.

Everything was packed up and put away by 8 p.m. including our party girl who was snoring softly before our last guests pulled out of the driveway.

MISC PHOTOS...

The art easel has been a huge hit.

Just like her mom, Saige packs that camera around everywhere. She has also taken a liking to packing around cats and dogs. We accidently let her carry Maddison one evening and now she thinks all animals are fair game (including 120 lbs Dakota).

Helping daddy shovel the sidewalk.
P.S. - words cannot express how much I love those boots of hers. I only wish they made them in my size.

She's a bit sticker obsessed...

and I'm obsessed with her.

She shares Trev's passion for extra-large Tonka toys.

Saige had her first movie theatre experience on Sunday with a matinee of "Tangled" at the Vernon Town Cinema. The Town Theatre is a historic one screen theatre in downtown Vernon that accepts Canadian Tire money on Tuesdays, allows you to 'bring your own bowl' on Wednesdays for free refills and only charges $4 per movie. Saige turned out to be a model audience member sitting through the whole feature length film (and previews) while munching on popcorn and laughing on cue. 

Every day this month we have heard the same request, "I play in the snow?"
I especially love the photo of her waving at Trev as he pulls into the driveway from work; I can just hear her saying "hi daddy" in her British-like accent. I'll have to get it on video, but Saige sounds like a young Keira Knightley when she says "daddy".

"I feed donkey apples" - yes we're feeding Donnie the horse apples.

So that's about it folks. I'm going to try to keep this blog going with photos, videos and maybe even a house tour. Saige's bedroom is still not done as I'd like to spray paint some picture frames but don't have a venue to do such a thing . Trev and I have decided to put the bulk of our time and money into getting this house finished and on the market. Hopefully you'll see a for sale sign stuck in our lawn before 2012 rolls around.

so happy you're back! I've missed my Saige and Sara (and I guess Trevor too) updates!
we'll be seeing you in just over 6 months!
