Abby's Big Day

My niece Abigail turned 8 last week. I can't believe it...she's so grown up now! To celebrate her birthday we spent the day together yesterday. The plan was to go to Dishington's Tearoom for a "grown up" lunch. Unfortunately when we got there, they were closed for the weekend. Bummer. So, we decided to go to Cora's. (a new breakfast place in town...yummy!) It was a big hit. They even brought out an apple carved into a swan with a sparkler. Then we hit the mall. First stop was the bead store to make a bracelet. We then picked out a present for baby Liam. Mommy & Daddy, Josh & Kaelyn joined us for a BBQ and we finished the day off by going to see the new baby.

Welcome to the World Liam!

Last weekend I became an auntie for the SIXTH time! On Saturday afternoon I was talking to my sister and she let me know she thought the baby was probably going to come on the weekend. Cool. She called me back in about an hour to let me know that I should pack a bag and head over...they were headed to the hospital! I quickly followed orders and drove over to the Koiters. They were enjoying Swiss Chalet take out when I arrived. The contractions were coming closer together and it was soon time to head out to the hospital. I stayed with the little peanut (Jesse) who's life was about to change!! At 11:48pm Liam Nicholas Koiter arrived. Wow, does he have a lot of hair for such a little guy! he he. Totally cute.
