Someone's Having a Baby! (Not me!)

I'm not sure why I never blogged this week. I think it's a combo of being so busy (June is our busiest month this year), being sad about the riots (I don't care that the Canucks lost but the resulting riot just broke my heart), and then being upset that a Langley Christian School student was missing. However, she has been found and has been returned home safe and sound!! Thank you God. I feel so much relief for the parents, I just can't even imagine. Wow, my heart was heavy and it's so good to see Vancouverites cleaning up and Mandy being found.

The boys are great. I decided to get the 50mm f/1.4 out as I haven't used it in probably 6 months (I'm a bit of a 24-70mm and 70-200mm fan!!). I missed it.
This is how Koen gives me flowers. He destroys them but he means well.
I'm going to be doing Kai's 5 year photo shoot sometime in the next week so I can make his invitations. I think I'm going to try to make some professional type ones as we've finally made the leap to offering professional prints which are soooo much better. I'm excited about the location and hope that Kai behaves. He's not so into the camera these days.
Koen is moody but sweet. He will say things like `Mommy, you vacuum the van? Great job, mommy!'. So sweet:) But, he also has his 2 year old side. I can't believe he's 2.5 years old. I'm really, really wanting a baby, like, yesterday. So, we have been trying to figure out what to do. Maybe some more information on that when we figure it out:) If you are the praying type, please pray for patience, clarity and wisdom.
We are busy and have already booked 6 weddings for next year. Crazy eh? We are only accepting 10 total because by 2012 we will have a baby. Well, hopefully! My oma is in town for my cousin's wedding tomorrow. We went to my dad and Joanne's for dinner to visit with her. Always good to see oma!
I'm named after oma's late husband, Louis. He passed away a month before I was born. Sound familiar? Although, we didn't name Kai after my mom. Not sure of a male version of Greta:)
And the boys finished off the evening with a pillow fight. They love their pillow fights with Opi!

And to end with some more positive littlest sis, Trish (aka `Nut') is pregnant! I have known for far too long (like when she first knew!) so I'm glad I can finally share! Yay for a niece/nephew for Christmas!
Have a wonderful weekend.
Love, Louise
