Day 137 - Sunday, May 17, 2009

Off on a milk run. We switched to milk jugs at Mac's so that we don't have bags anymore. We usually go about once a week to get two jugs as we are starting to use the third at home.

Day 136 - Saturday, May 16, 2009

We saw Smitty in concert - bringing back memories of the Queensway, ATF and KB. He does an amazing job of bringing us to worship!

Day 135 - Friday, May 15, 2009

Friends and popsicles - doesn't get much better than that.

Day 134 - Thursday, May 14, 2009

Extremely windy day but the kids still wanted to go to T Park. Some older kids came and were doing "fancy moves" on the swings so Marlee and C did their attempts.

Day 133 - Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Finally finished the thank you albums - I think they turned out really well and I hope the ladies will like them! MOPS has been such a blessing to me!

Day 132 - Tuesday, May 12, 2009

All packed up and ready to go to school to pick up Matt, complete with baby.

Day 131 - Monday, May 11, 2009

Marlee had a turn at the camera and here we have a picture of Matty's smelly socks!

Day 130 - Sunday, May 10, 2009

Happy Mother's Day - I had a great one complete with 2 dozen roses! For more details see here.

Day 129 - Saturday, May 9, 2009

1 ladies event, 3 birthday parties, 1 shower and bible study today. Oh and still finding time to scrapbook. I'm working on (Shhh) a thank you album. Slowly but surely. You can check it out on flickr - enter alijoy under the search for people!

This was a cool exercise - we were given a bag of m&m's and instructed to take any number from 1-5. After that we were geven a sheet with each colour listed and something to share with the ladies in our group.

Red - share a fond memory
Blue - shar a quality you appreciate in a friend
Green - share your most wonderful vacation you've had or dream of taking
Yellow - If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things/people would you bring and why
Brown - tell us a hobby or an interest you have
Orange - wild candy - please share anything you like

Day 128 - Friday, May 8, 2009

Torrential downpour and prom - see more here.

Day 127 - Thursday, May 7, 2009

Garbage/ Recycling day - a must to see the trucks go by.

Day 126 - Wednesday, May 6, 2009

I LOVE this hat on Marlee. Melissa gave it to her in the fall but she hasn't wanted to wear it. She's finally beginning to. Not sure what is going on with the look though!

Day 125 - Tuesday, May 5, 2009

I attended a seminar tonight put on by the city on preparing an emergency kit. There were only 5 of us in attendance but I learned a lot. It's also one of my 101 things to do...

Day 124 - Monday, May 4, 2009

We've been having a thing for apples lately - they have to be gala. Matt eats them whole, the girls like them cut with the pampered chef slicer. I put a few in a container with the slicer and off we go. Snack when we need it.

Day 123 - Sunday, May 3, 2009

We had another play performance today (Matt was "Carl" and a lion) and later birthday celebrations for Drew for dinner. The kids made some extra money picking dandelions for grandpa at 1 cent/flower.

Day 122 - Saturday, May 2, 2009

Wow - busy day! It's Drew's birthday so we went out for breakfast. Matt had his first performance for King of the Jungle in the afternoon and then we had small group. I think Drew's photos deserve the spotlight today. He received a number of adidas things he had picked out from the website. Unfortunately even the size 15 golf shoes were TOO SMALL!!! He's going to try the size 15 wide to see if they are any better.
PS - We bought two rain barrels today - great price! More on my 101 blog!

Day 121 - Friday, May 1, 2009

Started the May LOAD today! I'm not sure if I will be able to keep up this time but I'm certiainly going to try. It seems like it sort of sprung up on me this time! I'm looking forward to the inspiration again though! This layout is actually my second because the first one I loaded - although it was after midnight here, it showed up as April 30th on flickr. I'm glad I got it still done! This layout was from - showing us how to do hybrid scrapbooking.

Day 120 - Thursday, April 30, 2009

A meaningful breakfast discussion between father and son over a bowl of cereal.

Day 119 - Wednesday, April 29, 2009

I have to say that she is one of the cutest kids I know! I've been watching the daughter of a friend for a few days as she gets into a new job - she's 13 months now and practically potty trained. Yep. Can't believe it but she rarely has a wet diaper and TELLS her mom when she has to go (well takes her to the bathroom actually). If I didn't see it I wouldn't believe it. And it's been more than a few months!

Day 118 - Tuesday, April 28, 2009

I debated between a picture of the first flowers in our garden or the bugs. The bugs won. I can't believe we finally have flowers or "greenery" and the bugs are already eating them! The kids and I did find them interesting to watch though.

Day 117 - Monday, April 27, 2009

Flip flops were not appropriate today! Man it was cold! I tried to wear closed shoes but it just didn't work with my "surgery", so I had flip flops and my winter coat on. I did drive to school today though.
