Sudden Snowstorm of 2009

Today's snow came out of the blue! Within a couple of hours we have a couple of inches on the ground! The kids were all able to try out the new snow disc... lots of fun! And Joey got to feel his first snow. He tolerated it at first, and even smiled at it a few times!

Merry Christmas and a Happy Festivus to You!

What a great time we had visiting Grandpa and Tamu in Texas! Although Alec and I were a bit (ok, a LOT) worried about the flights there and back, the kids did really well! We had a nice restful few days and lots of "special" time with Tamu. Alec and Steve got some man time at the cigar bar, and the girls did special bathtime and special make-up with Marilyn. I got some much-needed extra hands to help with the kids for the entire vacation. What a perfect Christmas gift! We were sad that cousin Mackenzie and her parents couldn't join us, but are glad to hear that she's now on the mend!

Now we're looking forward to a fabulous 2010, which is sure to have a better start than 2009 did for us. Happy New Year!!

Visits from Family

In November and early December we had fun visits from family - first cousin Mackenzie brought Uncle Blake and Aunt Shayna for a visit. Then GrandBob and Mimi came for two weekends in a row. We had a great time... thanks for coming to spend time with us!

Caroline's 3rd Birthday

Caroline had a great "Rock Star" themed 3rd birthday, complete with a Dance Party and a Rock Star cake! What fun she had!

After a hiatus for most of 2009, the Laidlaw Family website is back. And we're sporting a new team member... Joseph Robert! We welcomed him on June 8th at a hefty 10lbs 1oz. A happy baby boy!

Updates will start a-comin' as we roll into 2010, which is sure to be our family's best year yet!
