Birthday Night With The Colts

We spent the evening of Cooper's Birthday at the Barrie Colts Hockey Game.
It was a great game with great friends.

Cooper got to meet Charlie horse, his birthday was announced and he yelled GO COLTS over and over again the ENTIRE GAME.

The Puck Dropped at 11:00am

As guests arrived for Cooper's party they came in the house, checked the team rosters and suited up in their jersey.
Once suited up, the game was on.
After the game it was pinata time.
Time to eat

Celebrating Three

I don't know why but my children's birthday's stir up a crazy amount of emotions in me. Another year older. Crazy. I feel happy, proud, excited, sad, nostalgic, weepy and to be honest, a hot mess.

All Night Long...

One of the tests that had to be done to attempt to figure out the cause of Riley's seizure is a sleep deprived EEG. This meant we had to keep her wake for 24 hours, which also meant I had to stay awake for 24 hours.

I knew that if we stayed at home, we, I, would be asleep in no time. So, we closed down Chapters.

We closed down Starbucks
We then came home at 10:00 to watch the Smurfs and have a snack.
At midnight, it was Walmart time.
Home to bake brownies and then pancakes until 3:30 in the morning
We spent from 4:00 until 5:30 at my school in the gym and playing on the stage.
By 6:00 am our little bean looked like this...
She rocked the EEG, awake for the time she had to stay awake, asleep within minutes of the nurse asking her to sleep and back awake to watch the crazy flashing lights.

Riley was asleep within minutes of driving away from the hospital and slept until about 1:30 in the afternoon. When the boys got home they wanted to cuddle their Riley.
