Random Fact

So I was just wondering if it was just me, or does anyone else feel this way? Sometimes (actually, most times) when ambulances or police cars or firetrucks alarm their sirens and everyone has to pull over to the side to let them pass, I cry. Not because I'm thinking about the person they're rushing off to help, but because I feel some sort of weird kinship and connection to the other drivers I pulled over with. It gives me this strange, prideful feeling. In a good way. Like I'm proud to be a Calgarian with these other people who are respecting the rules together to make the way for our city servants to help those in need. I don't know, it's weird. But I can't help it! I get choked up. Tears come to my eyes. Almost every time. Am I alone in feeling this way?? Please tell me I'm not! :)

Wow, they've grown!

Claire was downstairs playing with my kids today and they were so adorable all snuggled up watching "The Princess and The Frog" that I couldn't resist taking pictures. While looking at the pictures, they reminded me so much of the pictures we took of them just over 2 years ago. Here they are!

I can't believe how much they've grown! They are such good friends and love to be together! Sometimes they fight like siblings but that just means they love each other like siblings too! :)
