While we were still pretty active and updating our status’s on our Facebook and our Twitter, life got really busy out of no where and and we hadn’t written any blogs since Christmas 2011. Seeing as we’re back, I figured I’d share some of the highlights in our life over the last couple of months.
Here’s what you missed...
January 2012 – Happy New Year!!!!
On Saturday, January 7th, 2012 we sold bubble blowers at George Preston Arena in Langley, British Columbia, Canada at the Kids Swap n Shop event, a one stop shop for all your families needs. All proceeds benefited the Bubbles Make Him Smile Therapy Fund.
Bryce’s latest fascination is wrestling and boxing and all things related. He got a World Wrestling ring toy set for Christmas and loves setting up the wrestlers and playing with them. At least once a week he builds his own personal size wrestling ring in our foyer with any materials he can find and plays wrestling with daddy in it.
February 29th, 2012 was the 5th annual Pink Shirt Day, also known as Anti-Bullying Day.
One in four Canadian children are bullied. That is one too many in our opinion! So we proudly wore pink to symbolize that we as a society will not tolerate bullying anywhere and to take a stand against bullying and show our support.
Bullying is a major problem in schools, workplaces, homes, and over the Internet. It doesn’t have to be. It shouldn’t be.
Bullying Stops Here.
Use your WITS!
W – Walk away
I – Ignore
T – Talk it out
S – Seek Help
The WITS Programs aim to reduce peer victimization and bullying in elementary school children. It is a simple way of teaching children the skills that they need to handle conflicts with others.

On Thursday, March 1st, 2012, Bryce’s grandma (Daniel’s mom) passed away peacefully at Vancouver General Hospital. She had a bunch of health conditions but that didn’t make her death easier on any of us. We had a celebration of life for her and she treated all of her family for one last dinner at her favourite restaurant, The Olive Garden. She will be greatly missed.
That about sums up the past couple of months of what’s new with us and what you may have missed. I’m sure I’m missing something but feel free to follow us on Facebook and Twitter and you’ll never miss a thing!
