No real picture today...just thus quote that literally made me laugh out loud.  Oh I can relate!!

I found this pirate lost at sea I took her home! I loved watching her in her spring musical, she did an amazing job!

Father and daughter. Just hanging out playing with a remote control car.

It was a drizzly evening so it was the perfect time for family game night!

Looks like later this week I can continue working on my tan that I started on this gorgeous Sunday afternoon!  Bring on summer, I'm ready!

I may not be able to jump together with my little miss on the trampoline due to my back issues, but that didn't stop us from having a blast together this afternoon anyway! The laughter in this child is breathtaking.

I know it's just a TV show.  I know it's a fictional character. But that didn't make it easy to watch one of my favorite characters on Grey's Anatomy die on this week's episode that I just watched tonight.

Today was a good day. It was my last work day of the week (and a good and busy day at that), I had a good hair and outfit day, and I spent the evening catching up with my bestie.  Thursday for the win!

While the rest of Manitoba is watching the Jets play what is likely to be their last playoff game,  I have my nose in that book I started on Monday. Yes, I am still a Canadian even though hockey bores me to death.

Imagine my excitement when I saw on Candace Cameron's instagram page that a spin-off of Full House (called Fuller House) is coming out in 2016. Now I just need to get Netflix so I can watch it!!

It's been far too long since I've picked up a book. Today it felt great to start sinking my teeth into this one.

The girls have both been working really hard at some personal goals and as a reward we had a bit of a pie-in-the-face action happening over here tonight. Joelle threw a pie (which as really just dream whip) in Les' face and Malia threw one in Joelle's. I was off the hook...this time!

Tonight was the perfect evening to head to the park to play some soccer. Malia is practicing for the upcoming season and we all had fun joining in.

Enjoying a few minutes of warm sunshine before our evening company arrives.

I have been furiously trying to whip up a blanket for my nephew's birthday this week. The problem is I don't think I'll finish in time...but I worked on it for so long tonight that I have a splitting headache!

After 2 days of celebrating already,  today (Les' actual birthday) seemed a bit too low key but that's ok.  We still enjoyed leftover carrot cake!

Sunday, April 12, 2015


And the birthday celebrations continued today with a BBQ lunch with a bunch of friends from church.  Three others at the party all have birthdays within a day either side of Les so we celebrated all of them together!

Les getting ready to enjoy his early birthday dinner at Red Lobster.

There was no school today, but Joelle had a friend over for a big chunk of the day to work on their science fair project. It involved lighting 2 candles (one white, one a different color) to see if one burned faster than the other. Every 10 minutes for about 6 hours Joelle took a picture which will get made into a fast slide show to show the burning process. Never before have I paid so much attention to burning candles before!

The sky was so gorgeous tonight that I had to pull over on the side of the highway and get out of the van to take a picture.

Wednesday, April 8, 2015


I went out with a friend tonight in this sweet ride...

Today was "wear blue in support of mental health" day at Joelle's school. Given the importance of this subject, Malia and I also dressed in blue as a show of support.

Well, it took me several months but the day has finally come. I regret cutting my hair. I want it back...

"We are more than conquerors through Christ. You have overcome this world, this life." ~Rend Collectice
I sang/played this song in church with a friend today as a celebration of Easter. The lyrics to this whole song are amazing and I loved doing it.

Not much beats the feeling of snuggling a precious little baby.

One of today's best niece enjoying playing with Les' bushy beard. She kept saying "I like your mustache."

I saw this new picture hanging in the bathroom at one of my cleaning client's today and I loved it. What a good reminder!

In keeping with the traditional I started last year when my oldest niece turned 13, I took the newest teenager out for an auntie/niece shopping outing.
