Funny kids

Here's a video of the twins' new favorite thing to do. Laurie will sit (by herself) in the "walker" and Felix will push her around. They're getting better at this, but this is one of their first times. Funny kids !

Disney Trip

We just got back from a 10-days trip to Disney. Oh Boy ! That was not really a relaxing rip. But we did have a great time and the weather was so nice. The babies did very well on their first plane rides. I was impressed. Hugo was really excited. We were supposed to arrive in Disney at around 2pm but because our plane was late we did get there at 8pm... First thing Hugo wanted to do : go to the Lego shop :) He did mangae to wait till the next day though.

Hugo loved the Lego shop (of course), taking the monorail, the Dinosaur ride (Even though he was scared), the Snow White ride, the fireworks, the Lights, Motor, Action Extreme Stunt show, the Pirates of the Carribean ride, the princesses (he kept telling me how cute they were) and mostly everything he saw :) He did go into Soarin' and Splash Mountain... which I thought he would be scared, but no :)

Felix loved the It's a Small World ride. He was scared of everything dark and/or loud (so mostly everything else). He didn't like the characters, but he didn't mind the princesses.

Laurie loved everything that made music. She was really the party girl, dancing to everything and not wanting to sleep ever :) She didn't like the characters as well.

All in all, we had fun. We did go to the parks every day, so that was really tiring. The babies slept way less than usual, but hopefully they'll catch up in a few days. The last day we all got sick... everyone but Hugo. So it was not a really pleasant flight. But now that we are back home, it doesn't seem so bad :)

Here are a few pics, there are more on my facebook page since it's faster to download them there : http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=91616&l=5785d&id=1040880102

Happy First Birthday to my babies !!!

Almost one year ago I was so nervous, anxious, excited and big !! I told my husband on the way to the hospital : "You know, life will never be the same again". And you know what, I was right. It has been an amazing year, filled with joy and happiness as well as restless nights and a bit of sadness (acknowledging that I'll never be pregnant again :( ). Everyday I am thankful to be the mother of three beautiful, healthy children.



Here's Laurie's first picture.




And here's Felix's first picture :








And here they are a year later :




Everyday I'm amazed just looking at them. Felix is such a climber. We always find him up on some table or chair or emptying the cupboards or drawers. He also can be found playing in the toilet bowl (that's my favorite !!). He has four teeth and he's repeating a lot of the things we say (or he's trying... mostly sounds like gaga, but still... he tries). Felix doesn't really have a favorite toy, but he sure does like to follow Hugo around and play with whatever Hugo's playing with.


Laurie is more laid back. She lets people come to her instead of going to them. She is just starting to push herself up. She's a cuddler, whenever she's in my arms, she just hugs me and gives me kisses. She's the sweetest. She understands a lot of what we're saying. She still has no teeth and almost no hair (what's up with that lol !!!) Her favorite toys are the Little People figurines. She loves playing with those.



Tomorrow they'll be one year old... Happy first birthday my sweet babies !!!

Twins' Birthday Party

We threw the twins' birthday party today since my father-in-law was in town. They had such a blast. They had cake and tons of gifts. They love each and every one of them. It was such a long day though... glad it's over.

I cannot believe they'll be one year old in 10 days. It's amazing how fast time fly.

Here are some pics :











And here's a pic of Hugo in his Halloween costume. He kept it all day long last Friday :)

My Feelings, exactly

I'm totally in love with this song from Pascale Picard... and it totally is how I've been feeling lately.



How do I feel? Alone and lousy
And I may seem selfish but I need
A little break on my own, can’t you see
I’m just tired of being phony

So for a while stop calling me, my friend
I’ve spent 20 years forgetting myself and then
What else? Am I just incomplete?
Sometimes I’m so sick of being sweet

I’m sure far away from me
You’d feel better than down here
So why don’t you take a look at this path
And then you’ll see…‘Cause I’ll never be a bit far away from me

So here I’m again, in front of the TV
Watching lives more exciting than mine
Because there’s always just too many good reasons
Too many reasons to be sad

I’m sure far away from me
You’d feel better than down here
So why don’t you take a look at this path
And then we’ll see…‘Cause I’ll never be a bit far away from me

Why don’t you try to keep your distance?
That’s so weird to try to listen to myself
As long as I won’t be, for a while, far away from me

I know I may be rude
But failing is always cruel
Don’t wait for me to stand next to you
I won’t be here for a while
I won’t be here for a while

Nothing more than this silent scream inside
So what, do you wanna hear about self-control?
Talking a little louder than usual
Freeing myself from what I just don’t wanna hold

I’m sure far away from me
You’d feel better than down here
So why don’t you take a look at this path
And then we’ll see…‘Cause I’ll never be a bit far away from me

Why don’t you try to keep your distance?
That’s so weird to try to listen to myself
As long as I won’t be, for a while, far away from me
I know I may be rude
But failing is always cruel
Don’t wait for me to stand next to you

I won’t be here for a while
I won’t be here for a while
I won’t be here for a while
I won’t be here for a while


Anyways, I don't know why I've been feeling so low lately... maybe it's the fall setting in or the fact that I started working again and have no time for myself, or DH's company that is on the verge of closing. But I hope some better days are ahead.

But even though I'm feeling blue, I've invited friends over for dinner tonight. We'll be 6 adults and 7 kids. And here's my menu :

  • Veggies and dip with sausages in bacon for the kiddos
  • French onion soup
  • Beef Wellingtons with Bearnaise sauce
  • Creamy au gratin potatoes
  • Salad
  • Asparagus with vinaigrette
  • Crunchy caramel apple pie with homemade caramel ice cream

So with all the cleaning beforehand, cooking and baking and cleaning after... it should keep me from feeling so low :(

Moody Friday :(

I hate it when I make plans with people and they don't even show up. I also hate it when I email people and they don't even have the courtesy of emailing you back. Grrr... Ok, vent over.

This weekend I'm going to the spa with my friend. Hopefully we'll have a great relaxing day before starting my new job. Besides that, we're going to dinner with some friends on Saturday night and that's about it.
