Anyway, after I was done with my site visit yesterday, I of course, needed to hit a scrapbook store. http://www.creativepapercrafts.com/ and bought some paint. The store wasn't very impressive, but I still had to buy something. Then, last night, Ned and I decided to go to Niagara Falls which is about 50 minutes away. It was FREEZING out! So cold that I had to buy a hat, or a touque as the Canadians call them. i cannot even begin to explain the enormity of how big The Falls are! They are illuminated by different colored spotlights and are just so roaringly loud. It was absolutely amazing and I would have loved to have had my canon rebel to take pictures. The area itself where they are located is a HUGE tourist trap and seems like a version of vegas with all of the neon and chain restaurants.
I convinced ned that we needed to eat dinner at the revolving Skylon restauarant http://www.skylon.com/ in which you take an elevator up at least 20 floors. We sat down for dinner and opened up the menu to find out the prices were outrageous for what really was a tourist trap. Ned got into actor mode and told our waitress that the movement was making him nauseaus and that we would have to leave! I was dying of laughter. :) Anyway, we wound up having a fun dinner at Hard Rock and headed back home!
Anyway, I held my own with my gimpy foot and I'm ready to be home and out of this cold, eh!

Well, guess what cupid brought me today....I love you, Brandon!
Edited: Bran and I stayed up last night until 12:30 playing Guitar Hero and I am happy to announce that I got ALL the way through Hit me with your Best Shot and Slow Ride! This was no easy feet since i had to play sitting down because of my foot surgery! Bran was able to get through Sunshine of My love! Watch out Axl Rose!
We then did some bowling and boy, does Bran bowl funny. I apparently throw the ball SUPER Slow like an old lady!

This was taken on my way to Fairfax Hospital to be induced on Wednesday, February 5th, 2003.
Here's Lexo 2 hours after her arrival. I was passed out and had no idea that this picture was taken. Check out her monster head and cheeks! No wonder she wouldn't come out, even with Forceps!
Here's a 5 day old Alexa Gwen! Check out those lips! She still looks like this when she sleeps!

Jen: Lex, why did you get a sad face for music? Did you not want to sing?
Lex: Mommy, lemme see my paper.
Lex looks at her paper and says to me matter of factly:
Mommy, there's plenty of happy faces on here.
I love my optimistic child :)
