It's been almost 5 years to the day since the girls started making their own school lunches. The top picture is their very first day and the bottom re-enactment is from this morning.

These two. Looking out the window as Les drives away for work.

I always love it when the girls sing in church. Today was the first time we sang in 3 part harmony together. Such a special moment!

I love games night with the fam-jam. Killer Bunnies is an old favorite of mine that has turned into a new family favorite!

When all you wanted to do was get home to start the weekend after a long week and you get stuck waiting for a train...for the 3rd time this week!

I was flipping through my Instagram feed tonight when I came upon this. Most of the time, I feel like Malia is a very young 11 - which I am so ok with. But every once in awhile this happens and she suddenly looks so much older than her age. I can't get over how beautiful she is.

I finally got on the treadmill again today after just over a month. That darned back of mine! I took it easy and walked about 98% of it but it was a start! Oh and I finally got to break in these awesome colourful running pants!

Here's hoping it won't be a long night or chasing this one around the house again. When I came up to bed she was already sitting up and mumbling, but even in her sleep-talking state she didn't appreciate the bright flash when I took this picture in the dark!

Today was the first day on a long time where I didn't actually pick up a crochet hook (even though it was a home day). But I did photograph the Cabbage Patch hat that I had finished yesterday!

Cupcakes for my nephew's birthday supper who turned 2.

Today we went to visit one of the babies from our church whose health had been declining this week. Joelle has particularly taken to this sweet girl ever since she was born and we were pleasantly surprised to see her condition had improved since the last update we had received.

Both girls are away on school trips this week. Joelle grade 8 class left yesterday for Camp Cedarwood and Malia's grade 6 class left this morning for Winkler Bible Camp. Malia's teacher sent me a few pictures today to show how much fun she was having!

I love it when I actually have a good hair day! It makes me feel so pretty.

Usually my coveted Mondays off are spent doing a bit of light housework in the mornings and then the afternoon is spent catching up on TV shows while crocheting. Today, however, I was gone all day running errands and attending appointments. And then desperately needing a car wash since driving around the city all day in the mild and slushy weather made for a car so dirty that I literally could not see out of the passenger side window. Of course it's already dirty again, but I had no choice!

Today was a beautiful day. The kind that makes me really excited for spring...even though I know I have a long wait yet!

Today I got to gift away this sweet giraffe to an even sweeter one year old. Happy birthday, Nova!

Trying on my newest project that I will have a hard time giving away tomorrow! Oh yeah, and I'm super happy it's Friday!!!

My work week seems to be crawling by. Thankfully tomorrow is finally Friday!

Jack and I don't always see eye to eye (just ask anyone in my family), but there's no denying he's handsome.

Someone wanted a piece of Mom with her today, so I lent her my favorite sweater to wear to school today!

Me and winter do not get along. A short walk with the family tonight and I was bundled up like it was -40 and I was still freezing.

Joelle has been spending quite a bit of time these last few days getting reacquainted with her ukelele.

This is the first genuine smile I have had in days. A huge stress has been lifted off my shoulders as Les and I decided to call our agent tomorrow and take our house off the market...for now. Things were still too unsettled on the other end for the country property we are looking at for us to feel comfortable about selling right now. Even though we were expecting to get an offer tomorrow. Now we wait to see how our realtor will react, but it's definitely the best decision for our family at this point. Hopefully on a couple of months we can try again.

Malia has been learning some guitar chords at school and I was impressed when she showed me what she had learned!

On my camera roll today, it's either a selfie or food. So I picked the selfie since I really liked my outfit!
