Happy New Year!

Or should I say… Happy Halloween, Happy Birthday to Me, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Birthday to Matt, and Happy Polar Vortex x2.

I can’t believe I have not been on the blog since October. Yikes.  But New Year – new start… even if it is almost February. 

Another thing I can’t believe is that 5 years ago right now, we were on the big beautiful blue plane headed to Seoul. It’s amazing how quickly time flies – everyone says that phrase – but it is so so true.  I wish we were going back ourselves – but I am currently arranging for a collection of photos to go to SWS – hopefully with a coworker of a friend who is headed to Seoul on Saturday to meet her sweet boy for the first time. 

So for now, a quick photo update of our life since my last post. 


Halloween 2013 – was a cold wet windy night. Alex started out as Batman and did a costume change into a pirate for round 2 of trick or treating.




Christmas Card 2013 photo shoot – one of the pics. 



Fun with photobooth – thank you Target!



We hosted a Christmas Eve playdate / lunch for Alex’s neighbourhood friends. 




Christmas Eve cuddles


A visit from Santa on Christmas Eve!




Alex and his loot – note candy in his hand…



Yes – I was crazy enough to go out in a blizzard caused by the Polar Vortex and take pictures of my front porch – it was so cold… but so pretty. Alex’s school was even closed – very rare for a city school – but understandable with -35 weather.


In mid January we had “Winterfest”. There was mini golf, ice sculptures, sledding, games, jumping castles and much more. It was cold… again – but lots of fun for Alex. 


Mason had eye surgery 2 days before Christmas… again this year. He is doing ok now – but not 100%.  He is really tired of the bitter cold and can’t wait for the weather to improve so we can go for walks again!
