Ultimate Blog Party 2009!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009


Well, it is that time of the year again! Time to get out and party - blog style!



First of all, WELCOME to all of you for dropping by! Come on in - I am just putting on a warm pot of tea - seeing that we are still in the 30 degree weather here in Michigan!



Let me introduce myself - I am Kelly. I am a mother of one - our daughter Lyla who is ten months old. She made me a mommy on Mother's Day last year! I am a wife of one as well! A wonderful guy named Ryan who I fell in love with at University 10 years ago!




Ryan and I were both raised in Canada and 5 years ago, 2 months after getting married, we moved to Michigan. I mostly started blogging as a way to keep in touch with all my friends back home. But now I am enjoying meeting new friends via blogging and hope that we too can become virtual pals!



So, go ahead, take a look around. You will mostly find stories of our daily lives - I will forewarn you.. a lot of baby talk goes on here, as I love talking about my little one!



Enjoy the party!

Prizes I am hoping to win include:
1; 100 gift certificate to a rocking horse to love, 41; simply precious photo tile necklace, 53; signing time a parent sucess kit, 75; original baby name gift, 88; Carrabba's Italian grill,
107; scrapless photo party invitations, and USC 12; see Kai run shoes

Well, I missed the party but wanted to let you know my twins were born on May 12th and I missed mothers day by a few days. But every three or four years their birthday falls on Mothers Day and it is a treat. I love the pictures and Kayla is getting so darned cute. Yes, I just love the skirts we all got the girls. I think Hannahs will fit her now and I have to watch and make sure she doesn't eat the seashells:)
Have a wonderful evening.

Love and Hugs, Laurie
