My girl turns 11 tomorrow but her party was tonight!

HeeHee...sleeping on Les' work boots doesn't look very comfy, yet he seemed to have no problem with it!

I needed a picture of the day today (that wasn't food) so I started taking pictures of Les and I (where he's pretending to be sleeping in most of them). Then Joelle came in the room and joined in on some of the shots...

I feel a bit behind the ball on planning Malia's birthday party for this weekend. Whose idea was it to have two kids born at the same time of year anyway??

Yup, we are big fans of Friday around here!

Joelle's 13th birthday party was so easy. They're too cool for party games, so I made them supper and then they just "hung out" and watched a movie.

Today was not my favorite day. All I wanted to do was stay home in my sweat pants all day and be lazy. That dream didn't get realized until 5:00pm...and even then, it was only the sweat pants. The lazy didn't happen till about 7:30. And it's only Wednesday.

With working 4 days a week (and only getting home half an hour after my kids do), I miss greeting them when they get home from school. The last two Mondays I have taken Jack for a walk to meet up with the girls on their way home. I wish I could do that every day!

Today I got to witness the beautiful wedding of one of my flower girls!

Pretty excited with the direction this calorie counting thing is going...

We got a phone call on Monday that Malia was getting an award at the school's ceremony tonight. We didn't know what award but I was so proud to discover it was the sportsmanship award for grade 5 girls (from last year) which was given out in honour of the young gym teacher who was killed in an accident a few years ago (the summer right before Joelle would've had her as her gym teacher). What an honour!

I was trying to take a selfie before heading out tonight, and look who decided to be a bit of a brat!

I had the joy of singing duets with each of my girls at our outdoor church service this morning. Malia had done a solo back in June for her first experience, and today was Joelle's debut. They both did amazing!

Les and I had our belated anniversary date tonight. Tony Roma's and Dairy Queen for the win! And kids who don't need a babysitter!

I'm down almost 10 pounds since I started counting calories 5 weeks ago and I had a little fun trying on clothes at the mall today, even though I didn't buy anything.

Les and I spent our 15th wedding anniversary making a (small) dent in organizing the garage. How romantic! Good thing we are celebrating on the weekend!

It was back to school today for my grade 6 and grade 8 girls!

Tuesday, September 6, 2016


Making school lunches has begun again! Tomorrow is the big day!

After spending the long weekend with our church family, it's time to head home, sweet home!

Sunday, September 4, 2016


Fall has definitely arrived this weekend. Brrrr!

After a very poor first night's sleep at church camp, I'm trying to "be happy" like my shirt says...
