Congrats Chiropractic Graduate!!!

Look what I've got!

This is David taking the Chiropractic oath....he the hot one behind the bearded man! lol

Future Chiro Graduate!

YEAH!!! HE DID IT!!! David Graduated yesterday, December 15th! I'm soooo proud of him. His parents were able to be here too, we are very grateful they could be here and I know they would never miss this momentous occasion. Thank you for coming Alvin and Claudia! He graduated with honors too (cum laude), soo we realllly proud of him! He has been so dedicated to his school, kids and me that I'm so impressed with all that he has accomplished. I opted to leave the kids home with a sitter so I could take a ton of pics and our camera ended up dying on me anyways! Thanks Jason for taking a butt load of pics for me. YOu are a life saver! It was a great program. I'm sure we will never forget this day! Congrats Dr. David! I love you very much!!

Our little architects


Building away.....and of course testing the materials periodically :)
Hailee supervising the construction

The Happy Builders
The Finished product. Not bad for a couple of toddlers and a messy mom!!
Tonight for our FHE activity we built a gingerbread house and the boys did an amazing job I must say. They literally did all of the decorating, they did have a few hints here and there from us but everything else was done by them. There was a ton of candy and most of it was consumed during the process of putting this little get away together. The boys had a blast, so this will definately have to go on the tradition list for every year.

} Ladies Night!

Ladies Group (minus a few that couldn't make it....we missed you gals!)
Love the silly faces...still looking beautiful.








Last night was our monthly Ladies night, hosted by Emali M., and it was a blast! Thanks Emali! Since this was my last Ladies Night I'd be able to attend before moving I wanted to bring my camera to take pics of all of you wonderful ladies! You are all amazing beautiful women and wonderful friends and I will miss you all! Thank you for all the great memories and laughs. :)

Giddy up!



Whenever David comes home from school the boys get soo excited because they know it's "daddy time". Usually that involves a lot of tickling, wrestling and horsey rides. They love to treat their parents as pets. Hmmmm....I wonder who really runs our home???

}Not yet pleasssse....





This little girl is ALL OVER THE PLACE!! Literally! Nothing seems to be stopping her lately. 5 days ago she learned how to pull her self to standing, so now the things I use to place on chairs and our couchs to get out of her reach are no longer safe anymore. She has learned to climb the one step up from our livingroom to our kitchen....so I can't even hide in the kitchen anymore! It's free range for Hailee. I even caught her climbing the stairs the other day!! I nearly had a heart attack when I saw that. Now I'll have to try and find that darn gate to put up. I guess I was just hoping Hailee would stay my baby forever.....nope, that ain't gonna happen! She loves her brothers and wants to keep up with them and bug them....and she does a good job of that. I'll just have to wake up and realize that my baby girl is growing up. :(

*{ What the.....




....how did you get there!?!? So this morning I when Xander finally woke up I sent Aidan up to get him. When he didn't come down with Aidan and didn't stop crying I decided to investigate and this is how I found him. He some how climbed up on top of the toy shelf and got stuck in between the bars! :D Kids do the weirdest things! I sure had a good laugh....but as you can see Xander didn't think it was that funny! :D

Journal Jar Challenge #1

So I decided to take the plunge and accept Tiffany's journal jar challenge. I need some serious practice with my journaling, so what a better way to practice than this wonderful challenge. "Where do I live?". What a great question. Hmmmm.... well currently our address is in Portland in the great state we call Oregon. This has been our residence for the past 3 years and we have loved every second of it. We are almost to the point of an extreme change in our lives.....David's graduation. The end of student life as we know it. The next step of life....a Career! A scary step meaning another transtion...a new place to "live". Canada. We are actually originally from Canada (not kidding eh!) but we have grown accustomed to the American ways and love it here. A few of the many things I love and will miss are shopping (specifically Target....love that store!), the 'suicide' lane (don't have those either....weird that I'll miss that to), authentic mexican food, 4 star hospitals, the ocean, ample camping and of course the people! So many things to list....these are just a few. I'm so glad I was able to get to know so many amazing people, that in my mind, are family. So for now I will take it all in while I can, enjoy every minute of living here in Portland and prepare to start the new phase of our lives.....living in the great white north, Edson, AB Canada.

Baby Blue Eyes!



Just had to post these. Hailee has to be the cutest baby girl ever! I have no idea where she got the blue eyes from, but I sure hope they stay!

WWF Johnston Style!

Hailee has the first pin! Xander seems to be struggling under the stress of Hailee's super strong grip hold!
Oh....Xander goes for the "finger sucker" cheap shot!
Hailee still has him pinned.
Now Xander is sneaking up from behind...
OH...And he gets her! It's the "giddy up horsey" move! Folks it looks like this match is over! And it's a DRAW!!!


So my kids love to wrestle and recently Hailee has been getting in on the action and it's hilarious! The boys actually let her think she's got a chance and lay there and let her slobber all over them and giggle. Of course they retaliate after and she loves that too! Just another day in the Johnston home! :D
