Happy 1st Beanday Tora!

February 23, 2012

Today is the 1st Birthday or “Beanday” of my beautiful little buddy Torakichi!

Torakichi translates to “Happy Tiger” in Japanese, and his name suits him to a “T”. Pun intended!

That said he has been nicknamed “The Bean” or just “Bean”.

The Bean is truly the happiest little boy I have ever met. Like his dad he is always smiling. I hope you have a grrrreat 1st birthday Bean. I love you very much. Here are a few photos of the Bean doing the things he does best.

Here he is enjoying one of his first baths...

...and here he is enjoying one of his most recent baths.

Here he is with his folks.

Here he is with his Mom pretending to be a baby Kangaroo...

...and here he is growling like a Tiger.

Here he is close-up!...

...and here we are together. I forgot to phone him in advance in regards to which hats we would be wearing.

Here he is in a park...

...still in the park but with his girlfriend.

His first Christmas, helping decorate the tree.

And finally here is a video made just the other day having a laugh with Uncle Jay. Click here or on the image below to watch!


Happy 2nd Birthday Ava!

October 15, 2011

Today is my niece Ava’s 2nd birthday. Here is her birthday invitation made by Uncle J. You can learn more about Ava here.

Look forward to celebrating with you Bella!

Oh and I wouldn’t try to crash her party. She’s half Italian…”if you know what I mean”.

Happy Birthday Kaden

January 20, 2011

My nephew Kaden also celebrated a birthday while I was away. Kaden was born on December 28th, 9 years ago. Apologies for the delay in posting but I’d like to take a minute to tell you about him.

He was a cute baby...

...and an even cuter toddler.

He's always on the go.

He enjoys a nice boat ride and spending time with his Pops.

He's a great fisherman.

He loves playing hockey...

...and hanging with his buds.

He loves his Momma...

...and he's always willing to lend a hand.

He is a ray of sunshine...

...and a super hero to me.

I can’t believe you are already 9 years old. I love you and wish you the best year yet. I hope we can see each other very soon.

Happy Birthday Buddy.

Happy Birthday Carolina

January 12, 2011

I’ve been playing a little catch up since returning from my holidays. Two very important people in my life celebrated their birthdays recently and I haven’t had a chance to post their birthday blogs.

Carolina’s birthday was January 5th. Carol is one of my favourite people on the planet and I’d like to take a minute to tell you about her.

She was a cute little girl...

...that became a beautiful woman.

She is married to a great guy...

...and together they have produced two more of my favourite people.

Once and awhile she gets a collo piegato.

She has a bit of a wild side.

This is how she looked pregnant.

She's an amazing hostess and cook.

She enjoys relaxing at the cabin on the lake...

Or taking in some rays on the beach.

...or taking a walk on the beach.

A good looking familia.

She is always smiling.

Carol poses with a forehead!

Carol is fiercely loyal to her family and friends. She is tough and will punch you in your eye if you disrespect her beloved Canucks! She loves the summer and gardening and BBQ’s with friends.

Carol you are one of those rare people in life that I feel I can truly be myself around (I’m sure more than you’d like). I am always amazed by your seemingly endless energy and supermomness! You are selfless and always put your family and friends first. You have gone above and beyond for me through thick and thin and I love you.

Happy Birthday Bella!
