Eastern Townships

So the wedding was beautiful. Dad was gorgeous and Oliver was adorable. A major hit. I drank my first full beer since finding out I was pregnant. It was delicious. Made sure it was Keiths to honour the fact that I am now a Haligonian.

Took some beautiful photos of Quebec. Rolling hills and trees trees everywhere. We found a little lake just past Richmond and had a mini picnic with Smalliver. I have now been to every province except Newfoundland. Can't wait to hit that up this summer. I love the east coast.....

Off to Joyce's cottage for a little bit of dinner....

First Father's Day

I am short on time right now, but know that there is a funny story to accompany our first Father's Day. It involves a soccer ball, 90 km an hour wind and pouring rain. Interest peaked?

Love you Daddy ever. You truly deserve a month.


Finally found my camera uploader cord. Saw this picture. Love it. Love you Grandma!

Off to Montreal for a few days...will definitely post when I get back. Going to eat a bagel. And say things like, "Zut alore!"...Will let you know how that goes....

dance dance dance.

just found out that oli has an incredibly diverse interest in music. new love? beyonce's 'single ladies'....i think he just likes the actions that i supply. lol! mat leave is awesome!

another song he likes? 'after hours' by we are i said eclectic.

And we're IN!

Last night was our first night in our new house....and Oliver slept the whole night!!! He must have known how much I truly needed it. WE have been in here day and night since June 1st getting the house in move-in condition: tiling floors, painting, cleaning, good lord a lot of cleaning.

I have fallen in love with the house though. A little cape cod on a corner lot with a lake 10 steps away. I hear kids swimming and see canoes every day. The entire street looks like the English country side. Forget-me-nots and buttercups are scattered all over our lawn. It truly is an amazing home.

Being near Matthew's family has also been amazing. I didn't realize how much help I needed. Trying to do it all does not work. Matt's Mum is down from England and has been a MASSIVE help. Oliver has really enjoyed getting to know all of his new uncles and aunts too! Uncle Iain and Aunty Gillian are getting closer to their due date (end of October) so we are all getting excited.

Anyhow, I will try and catch everyone up to speed with the goings on in Team LMnO. Oh yeah, that's our new family name. LMnO...(Lisa Matt n Oli)

(Since I lost my stupid camera uploader cord thinger here is an oldy but goody!)
