Woodshows and Work

Well it is almost time to return to work. My boys are growing so fast. Jake still has just the two front bottom teeth and Nate is still waiting but he has to be close. The boys are starting to enjoy sitting up to play and Jake is starting to crawl. Nathan can roll and bounce wherever he wants to get to and does so in a hurry. My Dad is still in the hospital but he is greatly improving everyday and should be getting out soon. My Mother is still battling and doing quite well let's keep our fingers crossed that things stay that way.

I attended the London Wood show a few weeks back for the first time in a few years. I thought the show was OK nothing too extravagant. My wife wanted to go away for the weekend so we packed up the kids this past weekend and went to the Kitchener-Waterloo Wood Show and went to one of our favourite stops Moose Winooski's for dinner. If you have never been to to Moose Winooski's in Cambridge you need to go. After dinner we went to our motel around the corner which was quite nice and set up the playpens for the boys. The next day we took our time heading home with a stop at Easterbrook's Foot Long Hot Dogs in Burlington. All in all a good weekend out!

Strange Days

Theses days as of late sure have been strange. With both my parents being ill and in hospitals I have find joy in my twin boys who are doing just awesome. Jacob had his first tooth on Sunday and his second popped today. Nathan is drooling terribly and is not comfortable so I expect a tooth anyday now. It has been terribly cold out this past couple weeks. Debbi and I purchased new car seats for the boys as they are near the limits of their current seats. I am not looking forward to switching car seats as the new seat stay attached to the car so loading the kids will be more work then strapping them up in the house and carrying the boys and the seats to the car. Our stroller has a defective part and I contacted the company and received very quick response and had little aggravation as they are apparently sending the new part. That was easy!

Taking Care

As some of you know I am dealing with some family health issues right now. My mom is awaiting news of what is next in her battle, while my father is still in the hospital. I am doing OK as I always seem to step up when times get rough but I have to admit I am getting tired. On a positive note the twins started solid food this past weekend and I did my first solo feeding of the solid food for both yesterday. The boys did good and are not quite sure about solid food but they will get the hang of it. After the twins last doctor appointment Debbi and I had to go car seat shopping as my boys are almost ready for the next size car seats. Debbi is starting to ramp up as "financial season" is upon us again. My poor woodshop is being neglected and is need of a good cleaning. Any takers??? Speaking of cleaning I am still going strong with Kijiji and selling items that we no longer need or have room for because with twin boys in this house they sure do take up a lot of room! So this is the first entry for 2010 and hopefully everyone keep their fingers crossed we can all have a good year.
