Deux Ans

That's two years to all you non-french speaking readers! Josh and I have been hitched for two years today. We're pretty happy we made it this long, it was touch and go there for a while..haha. Joking!!!
To celebrate, we went to OPA in the city on Saturday for lunch and then got a hotel room for the night. The best part was that we were asleep by 10 pm. We are soooo old. My parents took Lyla for the night, so we thought we'd take advantage of the sleep time (yea, she does sleep thru the night, usually 11-8, but you know, it's not the same as getting away!)
I have a few pictures from our day, but I don't know how to crop and edit, so I'll just post one for now.
Also, Beckey was asking where I was for the past little bit. I went to New Brunswick this past week to show Lyla to her family on my Mum's side. It was nice to get up there, even if Josh couldn't come, but I was glad we went before winter comes. I have some pictures of that too, but I'll put them on facebook.
On Sunday on our way home from the city we went to Stake Conference in Kentville. Afterwards we got some family pictures outside. Too bad it wasn't nice and warm out, we only had time to take a few. Oh wearing a bow, but Josh hid it on us before pictures. Jerk! Lyla's over 12 lbs now, and is about 23 inches long. She can babble like no one's business and giggles (only when Josh isn't around!). She is doing well holding her head up, and before I mentioned that she was going to see a specialist about working on her neck muscles, but I don't think we'll need to once she is assessed (which she hasn't been yet...sigh). Like I said, she still sleeps thru the night, usually 8-9 hours at a time, with 2 naps during the day. She's just so good and I love her to death. I know I am bragging, but I am just so proud of her all the time.
I guess that's all that's going on here. This week I am going to be working on her Hallowe'en Costume. It's a surprise, and I am sewing it, so I hope it actually works out. We're going to be coming to the city for the festivities, so get your kiddies dressed up and come on out with us!

Happy Anniversary!! Can't wait to see the Halloween costume...Karington is rather small still so she won't be dressed up...Ethan will be a dragon. Cute family picture even if there was no bow!! Sounds like something Phil would do.

Yeah, I have wondered where you have been! Sounds like you had a great anniversary! What I would give for a good nights sleep...

By the way, I like you hair dark, you must have got it done...? I don't remember it being that dark a couple of weeks ago! Very nice!
