A delicious but not very filling night snack.

Oh how I love this time of year when I can actually look forward to watching the gorgeous sunsets rather than dreading them like in winter. Loving these long evenings!

This afternoon was spent shopping for new bikes for our ever-growing girls. They are quite happy with the ones we found...although Big Sister is wishing hers didn't match with Little Sister's.

Saturday mornings are typically pretty lazy and slow over here. The girls weren't actually as grumpy as they look...they were just trying to not smile on purpose to bug me.

To some people this might still look like a messy kitchen. But for me, I've worked hard the last 2 evenings to get it in this state. My other counter still needs lots of work but at least this space now makes me feel more relaxed. I love a clean house but have a very hard time keeping one...especially without the help of the rest of the family (cough cough)!

Well sure enough...the forecast was acurate and this is what I woke up to this morning. I know it will be gone soon enough (a lot of it was already melted NY the end of the day) but the slippery highways made for a slow drive to the city for work this morning!

It certainly comes as no surprise that this is coming our way at this time of year...but it doesn't make it any easier to swallow.

Oh what a blessed sight this was for me this morning. I'm not sure anyone really knows just how much I needed this hour.

Sometimes...when life is hard and overwhelming...all we can do is look up.

Tonight at our church's Celebration of Gifts event,  the girls and I shared the stage for the first time ever! It was such a special experience to have them singing with me and I hope it happens many more times!

Tonight me and my wonderful friend Hilary put on a baby shower for my sister-in-law and sweet nephew.

With my girls having their own strong opinions of their clothes at this age, it was sure handy being able to text them pictures when I was shopping without them. Technology has its advantages!

It feels like it's been awhile since I've had a productive day off from work. Today I finally accomplished a lot, including making 4 dozen banana chocolate chip muffins and 3 dozen apple cinnamon muffins.

Another sure sign of spring's arrival...the trampoline got set up!

Saturday, March 14, 2015


Oh how good it felt to go on my first outdoor run of the year! I can't wait to get back in the regular groove and get back into shape!

Getting a head start on celebrating Easter!

The geese are returning. A sure sign of spring.  Happy sigh.

This picture kinda looks like a bucket of crispy fried chicken...but really it's a pail of unbaked cookies (or haystacks as some people call them). Les has been craving these for a while now so tonight him and Malia made them.

I just can't get enough of this gorgeous weather! Love spending time outside with my monkeys. And it's only going to get better from here!

Hello above zero temperatures. Hello puddles. Hello extended daylight hours. Hello spring!

Sunday, March 8, 2015


Me and the girls enjoyed a lovely walk with my parents today in the beautifully mild spring weather [while hubby was on an ice fishing day trip].

Saturday, March 7, 2015


Today is the day! I do hate losing an hour of sleep (although I am going to bed earlier than usual for a Saturday) BUT it is so worth the loss for what we will gain. Happy extra hour of DAYLIGHT!

Friday, March 6, 2015


Today was parent/daughter date night. Les and Joelle headed to the city for archery and a Tim Horton's run while Malia and I chilled at home with Jamberry nails, a movie and ice cream sundaes.

Thursday, March 5, 2015


Joelle wasn't feeling great today as she is battling a cold and hasn't been sleeping well, so I brought her to work with me today at the Tiny TreeHugger shop where I taught her how to wear a (fake) baby in a ring sling!


Someone had fun getting messy in art class tonight!

The take home portion from lunch out with my sister today. I was planning on taking a picture of US instead of food...but completely forgot!

After discovering last night that one of my favorite pairs of jeans had a hole in them, it meant a quick stop to Old Navy to take advantage of their 30% off sale. I hate jean shopping but thankfully found 1 pair amidst the huge pile that was a winner.

And the next time I buy a pair of jeans, they are going to be a size smaller. I hope.
