Some Quick Updates

So, I haven't posted for quite a while for a few reasons.

This past month will go down in the history of my life as the craziest, most stressful month ever ( not including the first month after Eve and Chloe were born).

To start from the beginning we have three birthdays this month, Naomi on the 8 th and the girls on the 23rd.
Add to that, the girls turned eight which means being baptized in our church. So I decided I needed to make them special dresses, which I finished at midnight the night before. This is not a picture of said dresses because I haven't actually taken any pictures of them yet (see below).

We also went to a wedding in Saskatoon for a weekend. Before that though, we bought a new van because I was too scared to drive out of the city with our old one. I love love love our new one though. The wedding was nice and it was so great to see all our family out there.

Just a cute pice on the beautiful grounds at the reception. (Thanks Liz, I still haven't downloaded any pics yet).

On a less exciting and much more stressful note, Jeff has been having a lot of medical stuff going on the past few months and we have been in and out of doctors and specialists and emergency rooms. Two weeks ago they admitted him and finally did an MRI. Prognosis- multiple sclerosis. The next two days I was on the verge of tears constantly but just trying to keep it together for the sake of the girls and Jeff. After a while it started to sound ok in my mind and I guess saying "It's a good thing, because at least we know what it is we are fighting now" finally rang true with me. We have a good team and an awesome neurologist who said that Jeff has relapsing-remitting ms, which is the treatable kind. So off to see the nurses to learn about thousand dollar meds.

To top off this most stressful and busy month we just bought a house!

Like just. The deal went through yesterday, and we get possession on the 16th of June. It was all so quick but the second house we looked at was just so perfect. We love it.
Here is the link to the house if you are interested in seeing it with someone else's furniture in it. I'm sure I will post my own pictures in a little while.

So I think that sums up our month in a very short very late post. Hopefully I will be able to star posting more regularly in August. Ha ha, I am not going to promise anything for the next month though because I now have to pack and move and fix up the new house , not to mention more appointments and all the kids at home!

Have a great long weekend and happy Canada Day!
