I can't believe its been a whole year already, but its official...Olivia Rees is ONE!
Our sweet girl has grown so much in the past year its astonishing! She has learned to walk, grown 10+ teeth and can say a handful of words like: mama, dada, nana, daryl, uhoh, santa, don't and good girl among others. She is the sweetest, kindest, funniest baby you'll ever meet but definitely has an emerging wild side as well. The next few years are sure to be interesting as she already keeps us on our toes!

Anyway, thank you to everyone who has been involved in our little girl's life so far. We have been blessed with this little sweetheart and thank you for your wonderful influences on her life.

Here's looking forward to the next year!

Happy Holidays.

Christmas Is Coming!

Christmas is coming!! So, we spent the weekend, well mostly Sunday, having a lot of Christmas fun! Friday night we decorated our tree and watched a bunch of Christmas movies, which is always mommy's favourite part. Then after a nice low key day at home on Saturday, we set out for our very busy Sunday.
First we went and did a little bit of Christmas shopping, Olivia loved walking through the mall (mommy is so proud!) and then we headed downtown to see the Santa Claus Parade.
It was crowded and very COLD but SO much fun! Livi even got to meet Santa in person!
After that we made our way over to Stanley Park to ride the Christmas train (traffic took FOREVER!). Livi had a great time looking at the lights and trying to sing along to all of the Christmas music.
Finally, after our very long day, we ended up at Nana and Grandad Nutley's house for dinner and Olivia helped decorate their tree. She was a wonderful helper! We can't believe that in just two weeks our little munchkin will be ONE! Her birthday party (on the 17th) is going to be so much fun!
