Jasper Trip

We went to Jasper for the weekend with Russell, Andrea, Beck and Marlowe. Beck and Tyler had a great time together. The whole weekend was a lot of fun. It was very relaxing to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a few days. We stayed at the Tonquin Inn, which had a couple of outdoor hot tubs and a pretty big indoor pool. 

 We went on a little walk around Maligne Canyon. It was beautiful. There were some really nice waterfalls and awesome views from the bridges.

We also went to Athabasca Falls. Unfortunately, we didn't' get any good pictures of the falls, but this is a nice shot from the parking lot that Trevor got.

Make-It Monday

We are still cooking, don't worry! We just got back from a wonderful weekend in Jasper (pictures to come later). It was a lot of fun! Today's recipe came from the back of a pack of Kraft Shredded cheese, and I love it.


2 cups uncooked macaroni
1 onion, chopped
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
2 1/2 cups milk
3 cups Cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste

Cook noodles as directed. Cook onions in butter on med heat 3 min or until tender (we prefer ours to be a little carmelized). Add flour, cook & stir 1 min. Add milk, cook 5 min, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low, simmer 10 min. Stir in 2 cups cheese. Add macaroni. bake in greased casserole dish @ 350 F for 20 minutes.

**I don't always bake mine, and it is just as good, if not a little better?!

Picture Post

I haven't really posted much for a quite a while. Time just keeps getting away from me. This post is full of pictures of Tyler.

We went out to the Patrick's on Labour Day weekend and went out on the boat. The weather was beautiful.

Tyler rides his bike in this parking lot next to our complex all the time. There is no through traffic, which is unlike our complex, so all of the kids ride their bikes here. He met a lot of different friends here. He was very fast on his bike by the end of the season, and was lifting his feet and gliding everywhere.

This is Ella from Day Home. She left our Dayhome at the beginning of September. They moved to Hay Lakes, so she now goes to a Dayhome in Leduc, which is actually run by someone that we know. Crazy. Tyler was very sad when she left. He still asks everyday if Ella is going to be at Dayhome, and when I asked who he played with for the first couple of weeks after she left, he always said Ella.

This is our neighbour Miriam. She is really good at playing with Tyler. It is quite handy having her around because she will watch him outside while I cook dinner and what not. They dug out this hole and then filled it in one day, and had a great time doing it.

Tyler comes home from Dayhome in this outfit every once in a while. He loves it because he thinks that those used to be Ella's pants. This is a set of backup clothes that they have for when he has too many accidents in his own backup clothes.

Here is Tyler with Grandma and Grandpa Scott when we were down for Thanksgiving. He sure loves his Grandparents.

Tyler loved holding Tacie on the weekend. He was very good at it, and was so proud of himself whenever we let him do it.

Lightsaber Battles

Lately, we haven't been up to too much. Trevor has been fairly busy with school, and me with work. My boss was gone to Vietnam for 2 weeks, so I was working a lot of hours while he was away. Things are slowing down at work now, so that is nice. We are lucky and haven't had any snow yet, unlike those in Southern Alberta. The weather has actually been really nice this Fall.  Now that I've said that, we'll probably get hit, but whatever.

Happy Halloween

This is just a quick post so you can see pictures of our little Dragon. He loved being a dragon. They had dress-up day at Day Home and they said he had a blast. He was roaring at everyone. He was super happy all day.

We went trick or treating around our complex and filled this bucket almost 3 times. He said Trick or Treat at every door, as well as Happy Halloween. It was so cute.
