Just chillin' on the couch in my comfy clothes watching "So You Think You Can Dance."

Joelle usually puts up a fuss when the camera comes out lately, but she surprised me this evening by happily co-operating with me when I wanted a shot of her in her "Did you smile today?" shirt.

We had a couple of coupons for FREE blizzards at DQ that expire at the end if the week so we made use if them tonight after Joelle's swimming lessons. I only had about 7 bites of mine but it was delicious!

Tonight's beautiful evening sky. Have I mentioned how much I love the view out my back door?

This is just one of those special shots where I couldn't help posting it in multiple places today. Love this kid and the sparkle in her eyes.

Malia was excited to help plant flowers today.

Love my pretty tulips that finally decided to bloom!

Showing their "battle scars" from their vaccinations at today's doctor's appointment. Malia is playing it up for the picture but Joelle's look is pretty true to the moment.

My girl ready for action at her turn in goal at soccer tonight.

Hmmm...a hanging flower basket and Christmas lights?! That's just not right! Those lights finally came down after this picture was taken.

We picked out our garden plants and flowers today. This year's color scheme is yellow, orange and red. Here's hoping I keep most of it alive!

Joelle has a friend over for a sleepover tonight and of course there was a movie with popcorn included!

Tonight was pure bliss with the windows open, hearing lawn mowers and smelling burning fields. Oh how I love this time of year.

Singing at my pastor's farewell dinner was an honor but also emotional. Losing control during the song was unexpected but hey, it happens!

Happy Mother's Day to me! I love my beautiful daughters!

Pretty proud of Joelle today! I ran the 3K together with her at the Physio Fit Run in the city today as her final requirement of the running club program she did for the past 5 or so weeks. Great job sweetie!

While treating my girls to a lunch out today, I got a text from our friends who are on their way to Ethiopia for the final steps of their adoption process. When I read the text to the girls (that they had made it to Toronto), Malia immediately said "Let's pray for them!" So right then and there, in the middle of the busy small town cafe, we bowed our heads and each took a turn praying for our dear friends. S&H these kisses are for you!

I hope she's always confident enough to boldly proclaim her faith!

Back and forth...back and forth...back and forth...for 45 minutes.

I went on a very special run today...two miles with my two girls! They did GREAT!!

Saturday, May 4, 2013


I'm breaking two of my rules today (one is that this picture wasn't taken by me - obviously - and the other is that it's one of the rare ones that is already posted on Facebook AND Instagram)...but I just couldn't help it! Plus, in my defense, my iPhone has been plugged into my laptop getting a very lengthy update since noon today so I haven't had the chance to take it with me throughout the day for other photo opportunities.

Reading time with a sweet 2 year old boy who has suddenly taken a liking to me!

Just a head in a box...that's not weird, right?

I am officially DONE crocheting stuff for the craft show I'm participating in on Sunday. I still have to tag and organize stuff but at least the hardest part is done...and I'm exhausted!
