Slumber Party

A friend of mine had a contest for her photography business and I was lucky enough to be the winner.  She is really talented and I love her work.  She wanted to do a fun shoot for the kids with a theme and she came up with a slumber party kind of theme with all white so she could focus in on just the cute little faces they have.  I love them!!

I just think they are adorable!  I can't wait to hang them in my own home!!!

The Weekend of My Dreams

 This weekend was a great one!!!  We were busy but were able to fill it with a lot of memories and time with family.
Some of the hi-lights included:

Justin and Katelyn's mini ball tournament in Foremost.  A little walk down memory lane for sure!  We were able to see Katelyn make a basket but we had to leave after the second game and apparently that is when the basket making caught fire and Justin and Katelyn were basketball machines!  It was so fun to watch them play and to hear Noni cheering for them.  He is probably the best cheerer that ever lived.
I love this photo.  I just love it

We were able to see a double incomplete rainbow- this is only awesome because of that youtube video about the double complete rainbow.  If you don't know what I'm talking about you should check it out.

 Addy and Josh and the kids came down for a surprise visit!!  They stayed at the lodge and we were able to enjoy some swimming together.  Myers was in love with the waterslide.  Ruby was in love with the hot pool. And Eldon was his awesome self.

 My baby nerds.  I think they are awesome.

Three Cannonbombs

This Noni of mine can be just plain crazy, but most of the time he is crazy awesome.
He fills me with joy just spending time with him.
Noni has 3 favorite things right now.
1. The number 3.
He will search high and low to find the number three EVERYWHERE.
The other day we were at the mall and he was looking in all the usual places for three's- the interac machines, the credit card machines, the sale signs.  You know, the usual.
At one point he ran up to the poster at La Senza and started hugging it.  Needless to say I got a little worried that my 3 year old was hugging a picture of a half naked model...  I didn't know what to think, I couldn't believe what the world had done to my 3 year old and I automatically started making a mental list of everything I was sure we were doing wrong, and things that needed to change.  I was panicking and worried for my little guy.  Then Ruby (who understands Noni more than anyone I know) started laughing and says to me- 'haha, he is hugging that number 3 on the sign'  (she must have seen the panic in my eyes!)  It was just the number 3.  phew.
On a side note- the number 3 is also my favorite number, always has been.  But I do refrain myself from hugging it when I see it.

2. Cannonbombs.  What is a cannon bomb?  Well, no one is entirely sure.  We think it is somehow derived from Cannonball, the jump you make into a pool, but are not entirely sure.  If you ask Noni a question such as, 'What would you like to do today?' He will regularly answer 'Canonbomby' or 'What is your favorite food?' 'Canonbomb'.  I love that kid.

3. His Fedora and sunglasses.  That kid loves himself some fedora.  And I love him in it.  He is so dang adorable.  Who knew a 3 year old mobster could be so dang adorable?  If you spend much time with Myers you will undoubtedly see him in his fedora and iron man sunglasses that his Ohio friend Eli gave him.

And for your pure enjoyment here is a picture montage of Noni trying to put on goggles.

He did it!! I always knew he could!

Snellcome Home

It is official and exciting!!  We bought a house!!
Everything is finalized and we are super excited!

It looks like Medicine Hat is our permanent home.  Which, after being semi-nomadic for the past 6 years, is a little bit odd, and is definitely taking some time to become adjusted to.
We love Medicine Hat and the people here, and we feel like it is a great place for our kids to grow up, and my parents live here (which is a definite bonus) but still I miss the adventure of moving and change.  It is just hard to wrap my mind around the idea of being permanent.
I think I will love it though.
I mean, I can actually decorate!  My pinterest finds will no longer be just distant dreams but can soon become reality!
Crazy 'Pinterester' here I come!!
It is going to be a 'pinteresting' next couple of months.
I could come up with these all day my friends...
I am excited for this new wonderful chapter in our lives.  And I look forward to embracing it and making the most of it!!
We gain possession at the end of June, then let the painting begin!
Who wants to be our first visitor??
I see a lot of Sniebe adventures in our future...
(Also, wasn't that title clever?  Snellcome home- like welcome home?  I'm awesome)
