My picture doesn't nearly do the sky justice. It was truly breathtaking this morning.

Someone is really eyeing up Malia's pizza...

A few new Christmas decorations to add a bit of festive fun to my desk at work...

Tuesday, November 21, 2017


My sweet nephew Max is now a whole decade old (as of yesterday)! I love his birthday cake of choice!

Crocheting these cute hot chocolate mugs made me feel all warm & cozy today.

A Sunday selfie that I thought looked better than it actually did. All I see when I look at this is how tired I look!

Apparently dipping McDonald's french fries in a strawberry-banana smoothie is the greatest. I'm not so sure...

Ahhh...freezing rain. The girls are hoping for no school tomorrow!

Trying to take a selfie with our new "friend" in the basement...but I couldn't get closer than this! (No, this isn't Les'...we are just displaying someone else's since they had it in their garage and Les figured it needed to be seen!)

I love supporting other local crafters, so when I saw these beautiful wood decorations on our local buy & sell Facebook page, I had to scoop them up! I think they make a perfect backdrop for my crocheted nativity set!

Almost a year ago, our little town got its on Tim Horton's! Surprisingly, we haven't visited it too much, but tonight we decided on a short family outing for a special treat.

Sunday, November 12, 2017


Our Sunday evening family tradition...nachos for supper (alternating with faspa every other week) and Master Chef.

These two don't spend much time together. So when they do, it's picture worthy (just as long as the teenager doesn't know her picture is being taken!).

Someone is happy that it's Friday! (Who am I kidding - everyone in this house is ALWAYS excited when it's Friday)

Reese's Pieces aren't my favorite (I'll take the peanut butter cups any day!), but when there is leftover Halloween candy in the house, I eat it...

Wednesday, November 8, 2017


Anonymous notes at my desk at work are very appreciated...but sometimes it really drives me crazy trying to figure out who left them!

And just like that, the very short volleyball season has come to an end.

Today I hosted a Thirty One party. These were the yummy snacks!

I'm really starting to get into the Christmas spirit - much earlier than usual - with all of the fun Christmas ornaments I've been making these days...

It's not often anymore where my 14 year old expresses her need for a mother. But when she's sick, it's a whole different ball game.

Today was "Take your kid to work day" for all Grade 9 students. And finally - proof that I actually do have another daughter!

Malia went as Pebbles Flintstone for Halloween this year. Her costume did come with a wig with a bone in it - but first of all, it was pink (??) and it was too itchy for her to wear. So it was a simple costume, but she still looked super cute! (And this was the first year where Joelle didn't dress up or go trick-or-treating...)

My super athlete also happens to be a natural musician! She's picking up the trumpet quite well already, after only having played it for not even two months yet!

Being goofy in one of our many Handiwork by Andi photo shoots!

When you think your child had a sleep-walking free night, only to realize that there was definitely some activity happening, unbeknownst to you!

Friday, October 27, 2017


Don't tell her, but sometimes I feel like I should pay her for her excellent modeling skills!

This kid surprised me with a wicked overhand serve in one of her volleyball sets tonight.

Monday, October 23, 2017


I love getting this girl to model my Handiwork by Andi creations. She makes everything look so good!

Sunday, October 22, 2017


Now that Joelle has just finished binge-watching Friends - I have someone to compete with in my trivia game! We didn't play the actual game; we just quizzed each other with the questions - but of course I still won!

I know the Rend Collective concert was yesterday - BUT, the picture we got with the band was just made available to us today...so it counts, right? I wish I was back at their concert again tonight!

Friday, October 20, 2017


Tonight was pretty amazing! Malia and I went to see Rend Collective in concert (with VIP tickets that gave us early entry and a picture with the band!).  They were missing 2 members - the husband & wife that had a baby yesterday, so we'll allow it.  ;) But it was still an incredible night!

Joelle has really been enjoying playing with her new camera that she got for her birthday. And when she involves her little sister in the process, it's that much sweeter.

Somebody was very happy to receive her (late) birthday blanket!

Don't tell Joelle you saw this picture - but today she tried on a DRESS in the mall! I had to sneak this picture of her taking her own picture to send her BFF because I don't know when the next time will be that I will see her in a dress!

One of Malia's youth leaders asked her if she would help serve with her at our church Thanksgiving dinner tonight.

Friday, October 13, 2017


Malia had a city volleyball tournament today. There were 8 schools (we were the only small-town school), they played 6 games (12 matches) and won every single one of them!

There are so many amazing fall patterns that I want to sink my teeth into. So many that sometimes I even take my yarn & hooks & patterns to work so I can chip away at them on my lunch break.

Wednesday, October 11, 2017


I am loving the new photo accessories I bought for taking my Handiwork by Andi fall photos!
