Lets hear it for the girls...

Our friends Jen & Randell just had a baby girl. Mikayla Isabelle 7lbs 9 oz. Both baby and mommy are doing well. Congratulations Jen & Randell. I will upload a picture of the baby as soon as I get one.

On a sad note, we found Maddie's fish, Jupjup dead in her tank this am. I think we will have to replace her because Maddie was asking about her and I told her that she was sleeping *wink* *wink*. So i guess Cox will have to take care of the burial of the fish alone, while i figure out a way to replace the fish inconspicouously. Hmmmm.... should we name the "new" fish jupjup too? Hmmmmmmm...

Sorry I have not been able to post anything lately been a little busy with something. Will let you in on it after the long weekend...stay tuned..

Congrats & Good Luck to Jen & Randell!

Our Chilliwack Trip

We went to Chilliwack last week because the boys wanted to play golf. So we rented a villa, which was more expensive than we thought it was. oh well, could not cancel coz their cancellation policy was 4 days prior! Anyway, the villa was nice, it was a brand new 2 bedroom home with an awesome view of the mountains and the valley and right outside our sliding doors is the tee box for hole #1. Also there was a new jacuzzi which we enjoyed very much. Anyway, here are the pictures...

PS. Today is Cox's Birthday! Happy Birthday Hon...hope you have a good one.

My little ballerina

We got a package in the mail, and when we opened it this is what we got! She wanted to put it on right away... I didn't even have time to coordinate her outfit. Thank you to the Chan-Tse's for the package. Maddie loves it!

My baby is 2 today!

I cannot believe that I am a proud Mommy to a 2 year old. Seems like it was just yesterday that I was pregnant, and now we have a very talkative 2 year old. Man, time flies when you're having fun i guess.

We have planned to have Maddie's party at the Steveston waterpark, but the weather network said that it was 40% showers today, so I decided to move the party to Kongkong's house. Thank goodness I did that, it turned out to be a great idea. We transformed Kongkong's driveway into our own little bubble waterpark with the sprinkler and a super bubble machine. Everyone had a blast! Even the adults, especially Emman. Haha. The cake was a hit, everyone loved it! Especially the birthday girl. Thank you to everyone who came to the party. I hope you had lots of fun and lot so food to eat! Happy Birthday Maddie!

PS. I have some pics to upload today, and more will come tomorrow. I have yet to download the pictures that we took from my dad's camera.

PPS. Thanks to Andrew for taking pictures. I really appreciate it!

Here are the first batch of pictures.... Enjoy

Greetings from Newport, OR

Newport is a nice little town on the oregon coast. If you've never been here, you should come visit! We took Maddie to the beach today and she had a BLAST!!! It was nothing compared to the sand in White Rock Beach!

We're off to the Newport Oregon Aquarium tomorrow, hopefully i will have some time to upload the pics.

Until next time.. TTFN

Hello from the "City of Roses" aka Portland, OR

We got into Portland yesterday afternoon, and because we're avid shoppers, as soon as we were checked in we rushed off to the outlet mall that was 10 min away. We had to rush as the stores were closing within the hour. But we got some shopping in anyway.

Today we took Maddie to the Oregon Zoo. She had a blast! She got to see all the animals she's been reading and watching about in person! We even had to rush the last 30 min to see what animals she wanted to see because she was getting tired and is almost about to pass out for her nap. But overall, i think we all had a great time. Pics to follow as soon as possible, i promise.

To get to the Zoo we decided to take the MAX which is the public transportation in Portland (like the T in Boston and the skytrain in Vancouver) . I didn't realize how far our hotel was. It took us about 45 min to get to the Zoo when it would've only taken 20 min by car! I figured that Maddie would enjoy the train, but after 15 min on the train, she was getting antsy. So i guess next time we don't have to include the train as part of the travel itin. Overall, i think it was good for us coz we got $1 each of our admission tickets! Plus we didn't add to the pollution of the city. Woooohoooo!

Tomororw we're off to more shopping while the boys take in a round of golf. Until next time.... I need to get some zzzzzz's for tomorrow's big shopping day!

have a great day everyone!

PS> As promised, here are the pics. WARNING -- I have to apologize about my "get up" on this day. My outfit should be voted "what not to wear"! I actually was in a hurry to leave on our trip and forgot to pack my black sandals. My husband was so embarrassed that he told me to shop for a pair of shoes ASAP coz he cannot stand my outfit! So i ended up buying another pair of crocs but now in brown. Still not matching but not as loud as the blue! Anyway, i hope you guys enjoy our pictures.

Phrase of the Day!

I just thought I'd start jotting down what my daughter has been saying out of the blue on my blog so i don't forget them. Today during a conversation with her dad, they were talking about Mickey Mouse and her dad asked:

Cox: Maddie is that right?
Maddie: You Betcha!

I just thought keep track of these things before my memory leaves me. Trust me, i don't remember anything. Ask my husband!

Another funny thing happened today, my dad and I went for coffee at Tim Hortons and Maddie wanted a vanilla doughnut because it was the only one with sprinkles (surprise, surprise) anyway, so she was eating away at her doughnut a few minutes later she said "Maddie's all done" i turned around and guess what was left, the doughnut part without the sprinkles. She ate the part with the sprinkles only! Hahaha Btw, her face was sooooooooooooooo messy, i wish i took a picture of it. Am sure you guys can imagine it anyway... until next time...
