Get on the Bandwagon!

If you haven't been watching Canadian Idol, well you'd better start watching... NOW! Some of you may remember me writing a post last year about our friend from church, Greg Neufeld, who made it into the top 22. He only survived one week after the show started which came as a shock to us and even to the judges. BUT, he's gone back for a second season and we're really excited. This means I need to solicit your votes for Greg. I had never voted up until last year, but it's easy, it's free and you can vote as many times as you want. So, what are you waiting for people? Watch Greg this coming Monday night as he performs on the first live show and remember - the lines will be open at the end of the show! Vote people vote!

Micah and I made chocolate chip cookies yesterday and here he is show-casing the benefits of baking with Mom...



He was inspired by Kamryn's blog performance yesterday and wanted to do his own little medley for the camera:



Micah had 2 installments of naps yesterday: the first was about 15 minutes in the car on the way to see Erik at work and the second was another 15 minutes before supper in front of the TV. I didn't want him to sleep too long that late in the day so I reluctanctly woke him up.
He wasn't too eager to wake up as you will see in this video clip:



Erik's parents left tonight for their Africa/Europe trip so we will have the house to ourselves for the next month. I think I will miss the Grandma-Micah playtimes the most as she often takes him off my hands for an hour here or a half-hour there.


Unfortunately I haven't been feeling good again this week. A little frustrating to say the least. I even cancelled an appointment that I'd made on Monday b/c I'd felt great all weekend. But, now I will see my doctor tomorrow - regardless of how I feel. Hopefully I'll be back to my full capacity soon...

Well, I admit this post was pretty random, but that's all for tonight...

Happy first day of Summer!

Haha...that's so cute....trying to get Micah up!! It's hard to keep those sleepy eyes opened!! Brooklyn was at that age and would fall asleep at the supper table with her face in her plate!! You'll have to check out my blog...I finally figured out how to add a video clip!!

I hope you feel better soon. I just got over a bad cold that turned into tonselitis but am feeling better now. Thank goodenss cuz we leave on holidays in a few days :o)

I knew you would be excited when I saw he made it again. They didn't show much of him on the last show.
your cookies look yummy Micah, i think we are going to bake some today too!
as well, Micah could be giving up his nap soon. Cassidy and Aidan both did at 2 1/2

Michelle - Erik's parents own the house and we rent the ground level suite from them. It's a pretty good set-up as we have 3 bedrooms, a great backyard and free babysitting upstairs pretty much anytime!

I loved these videos Jamie! I feel just like Micah this morning - so hard to get the eyes to stay open. Hope your Friday is a good one. I am off to be an extra in a PE class - I have no idea what that means. Anyways, I hope the doctor visit goes well!

Jon & Bonnie said...

Definitely getting on the Greg band-wagon! Too fun. Will be thinking of you on Monday as I watch!

Sorry you haven't been feeling well. That really sucks when we are supposed to have energy for our kids and feel rotten instead.

Rachel Z said...

I'll vote for Greg, if I remember to actually watch the show! I keep forgetting when it's on.

I did a crazy thing yesterday. Max had skipped his nap because we were out. He fell asleep on the couch at 4:30 and we just let him sleep ... until 6 pm! Mistake! He was up until 10:30.
