I'm still alive!

Hello Everyone!
It has been a super long time since I did anything here - whoops! Thanks to those of you who signed up for my little treat thing. I haven't forgotten about you - but don't expect anything for the next little bit. Sorry!!

What's new here.......well, our biggest news is that Matt is done school!! Well almost - his last exam is tomorrow morning and then school is over - hopefully for forever! He heard back about his National Board Exam and he passed that. Now he just has to participate in his official grad ceremony and he will be a real dentist. I'm super proud of him - It's been a VERY long journey and he's done really well. Way to go Matty!

So, you might be asking yourselves where we are going now that school is done. The big answer.........who knows!!! haha! Yes, we still aren't certain about our future. Right now we are waiting to hear back about an office in Airdrie. If that doesn't work out, it's looking like we might end up in Brooks for a teeny while. (so, keep your fingers crossed for Airdrie I guess) Hopefully we know in the next few days - would be nice!

Other than that, not much is new. Aiden is almost 18 months old - crazy!! I LOVE this age. He is becoming more and more funny every day - and a bit more wierd too, but I kindof expected that. He's starting to talk more now - his newest words are water, please, cheese and truck. Kinda fun. He's also getting good at copying us - and he always copies the most random things. For example, he can turn on the tap in the tub now, so he always turns it on, sticks his hand in to test the water temperature, and then reaches behind him to dry his fingers off on the towel. haha! It's super funny to me. Anyways, he's a super fun, goofy kid. I love him!

I've been SUPER busy lately with my photography stuff. It's been really nice and I've been learning a lot in a very short period of time. I'm a bit sad that I'm just starting to build up my business, and now I'm going to move and lose it all. Oh well. That's life.

Anyways, no post is complete without a picture - here's my new favorite of Aiden. I LOVE it!

Pay It Forward.........With Treats

So, I decided to do sign up for this on my friend Heidi's blog and I got a super cute little cookbook in the mail the other day from her. It's super fun! And it reminded me that I need to do my job.
Pay It Forward …..Here’s how it works:
the first 3 people to leave a comment on this post will receive,
at some point in the near future, a little treat from me.
What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise!
The catch is that you must participate as well.
You could write up a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going
(or copy and paste like I did), or if you're not really a blogging person,
maybe just pass along the fun by giving a treat to a neighbor
or someone you think would enjoy a little lift.
Remember that only the first 3 comments will receive a gift from me, so be quick! Have fun!
(now, I only need to think of something to give...hmmmm......)
