Baby Update =)

This morning after dropping Emma off at school we headed to the doctor for a baby check up!  I love these appointments where we have an ultra sound, I just love seeing new pictures of Baby Sirois =)  Everything went very well, and i'm 11 1/2 weeks along now.  Soooo much further to go still! lol 


Getting big!!  Tomorrow I have to go back for a Ultrascreen, and then I need to have a bunch of blood work done.  I'm thinking i'll go Thursday and have that done since I am off that day.  It's all starting to get so real now, and we are just beyond excited!!

Emma came home from school today and had a little package that was addressed to
"Big Sister Emma Sirois"
I should have taken a picture of her when she saw it, she was grinning from ear to ear =)
This is what she got



I just LOVE this shirt!!  I have mentioned her on the blog before, Leslie from "The Momma Fish" Etsy shop sent this to Emma!  Leslie is incredibly sweet and thoughtful and as you can tell by her big smile, Emma loved it!  { please don't mind Emma's blue teeth, I think she had just eaten a blue airhead candy, lol }
So to Leslie, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! =)

The Circus is Coming! The Circus is Coming!

Saturday we finally went to the Circus.  Emma has been so excited about it!  It wasn't exactly the best circus in the world.  They were missing some key components to it, like the trapeze people, Elephants, Tigers all the good stuff.  But all in all, it was still good and Emma had a good time!

 
A circus is not a circus without Cotton Candy of course!
 
 
Our civic center is scheduled to be torn down later this summer.  It was kind of sad knowing this will be the last time we would be there.  I grew up going here with my parents to high school basketball tournaments, to shows and concerts.  It's really old and they have built a beautiful new arena, but this one will definitely be missed.
 
 
 
I was kinda creeped out by the amount of Clowns that there was.  LOL
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
And of course a snow cone in a lighted cup!
After the circus we let Emma choose where we went for supper.  She chose a Chinese buffet!  Worked for us, and it's her very favorite!
 
Today Brian and I were both off.  Sooo nice to have an entire weekend off together.  We did a little around the house, and went to Old Navy for their stuff & save sale that's going on right now =) 
After we came home, we had decided we were going to bbq outside.  We hadn't used our grill in quite  awhile, so Brian cleaned it all up since it had sat pretty much all winter.  When he started it, the flames were coming out the side of the grill and in all kinds of weird places.  So needless to say, we had to go out and buy a brand new one tonight. 
 
 
I know, you all probably find this terribly annoying...but I always take pictures of food.  LOL

So the next couple of pictures, Emma took =)  She was walking around the yard with my big dslr, snapping photos!

While Brian was grilling, we heard a very familiar sound of Summer.  The music from the ice cream truck! 
 
 
 

She waited out on the lawn for him to make his way to our house
 
 
 
 
The girls across the street joined in too!
 
 
 
 
She chose a snow cone!  For after supper of course!
 
 
 
 
And our meal!  Brian sure likes to eat! haha  I laughed because his plate was overfilling with the food =) 
 
Tomorrow morning we have another ultrasound!  Soooo excited to see our baby's picture again! =) 
 
Hopefully you all had great weekends and hopefully your weather was just as beautiful as ours!

Boring Thursday

It's going to be a picture less post today!  Sorry!  I did a whole lot of nothing today, but Sleep!  I got out of work at 2:00 this morning, when straight home and got into bed.  Guess what time I got up today?  1:30 this afternoon!  Can you say tired??  Brian was really good and got Emma up and ready for school and neither of them woke me.

We picked Emma up from school and ran to the store so we could get a couple of sandwiches to bring with us to work.  We have a local store that makes the best sandwiches. I know, this all useless information, however I really have not much to blog about today! ha =)

Emma has a spring concert coming up.  I'm not sure the exact date, but I was thinking last night I really need to get her a new dress.  And low and be hold my mother texted me a picture of a dress she bought her today in Florida.  Perfect! 

So yeah...that's about it.  Now that I have completely bored you all to death with this.  Carry on...read some more exciting blogs today other than mine.  Hahaha =)

Wednesday =)

It's Wednesday!  The middle of the week, and it's just the start of my work week.  But a plus is that I have the weekend off, and it is suppose to be beautiful out!  And we have tickets to bring Emma to the Circus.  First time she has been, so i'm hoping it's good!

Last night Emma's school did a Science Fair.  I was kinda not excited to go to it, but it turned out to be a lot of fun for the kids.  They had a ton of activities for all the kids to do.  Emma had a blast!



This was a bubble thing they did using a hula hoop.  I didn't get a very good picture, but they brought the bubble all the way around her, she thought it was pretty awesome!
They also had this mixture done up in a little kiddie pool of cornstarch, water and something else.  And the kids were running on top of it.  If you stopped though you would sink.  Emma liked it, but it was kinda messy! 

We went out for dinner last night at one of our fav local restaurants, and had Me and Emma's very favorite dessert...Creme Brulee!  Yumm-O!





I have to share this next photo for one reason.  I was bring Emma to school this morning and took this photo of her.




Check out the armrest of her booster seat.  It's Chocolate! YUCK!  I had given her a peppermint pattie yesterday.  But little did I know she didn't have a napkin to wipe her grubby little paws on, so she wipped them on her carseat.  To say the least we had a discussion about where we wipe our hands.  LOL 

That's about all I have to share for today.  I must say, that i'm still feeling really good since being on my meds!  I'm hoping and praying it stays this way =)

Monday!

Emma went back to school today after being on April vacation for the last week.  She was sooo excited to get back and see her friends.  I thank god that she loves school as much as she does.  We had promised Em when she got out of school today that we would take her to the farm to see the animals.  I have written about this in the past, and she just loves it at the farm. We've taken her since she was just tiny.  I always take a picture of her and Brian in the same spot every year.  I shared this photo last year, and for some reason now I can't figure out how to add this years to the collage, so i'll share the photos separate. 


{click to enlarge}


And now here is this year...
 
 
 
 
I just love comparing these photos, every year to see how much she has grown!  And i'm not sure where in the world 2009 went, but apparently I skipped that year getting a picture.  Darn!
 
 
Checking out the newborn baby cows...for some odd reason I didn't take a picture of them.  But trust me, they were Cauutteee!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Overall, the farm was fun.  And then Emma got slobbered on by a cow.  LOL 
 
So I blogged last night about what I should cook for dinner tonight.  We went with bacon wrapped asparagus, steak and baked potato.  We tend to eat dinner a lot with my inlaws since they are right across the street, so that's what we did tonight.  Brian and I cooked there.  And it was super good!
 
 
I brushed the asparagus with a little olive oil, and then sprinkled with some sea salt and pepper. 
 
 
 
 
These steaks look huge, but trust me, they weren't!  They were really good though!  I have to say, Brian is a darn good grill cooker! 
 
Tomorrow we are back at gymnastics after having a week of it off!  Emma is really excited to get back at it.  I'm not sure what the plans are for tomorrow evening, but I heard tonight that our favorite summer ice cream shop opened the other day....may have to convince Brian to take me =)
