Day 334 - Monday, November 30, 2009

Drew's stitches on his belly - healing nicely but still grossing everyone out. He had to have another few moles removed and will continue to do so.

Day 333 - Sunday, November 29th, 2009

Lots of cards and some great purchases from the One of A Kind show. A few new necklaces, some apple cinnamon maple syrup (YUMMMM), and even a few gifts this time! I really like the Sunday afternoon time frame better then an evening. Oh and the company was great too (Thanks Kristy!)

Day 332 - Saturday, November 28, 2009

Matt and I spent the whole day at church where we reached out to the community and offered a free day of childcare so that parents could do Christmas shopping, errands, "whatever". The kids sang songs, learned about the real meaning of Christmas from "Billy Bob", played games, had snack and enjoyed an afternoon carnival. I had to leave before it was finished but I would certainly call the day a success.

Day 331 - Friday, November 27, 2009

We had a busy PA day here at home - 8 kids and lot of activities.

Thursday, November 26, 2009

Day 330 - Thursday, November 26, 2009

We enjoyed our special treats from down south for breakfast and lunch today. Ya-ya just got back from Virginia Beach and always brings us things we can't get here.

Day 329 - Wednesday, November 25, 2009

The view is definitely changing.

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

Day 328 - Tuesday, November 24, 2009

We walked the long way home to go with A - the kids were so cute walking together .

Monday, November 23, 2009

Day 327 - Monday, November 23, 2009

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth. Matt lost his 11th tooth today at school (no - not all "fell" out - some were pulled).

Sunday, November 22, 2009

Day 326 - Sunday, November 22, 2009

From painting to the wall; the railing is put up with a little "help".

Saturday, November 21, 2009

Day 325 - Saturday, November 21, 2009

Drew and I enjoyed a few nights away at the leader's retreat learning about discipleship, conflict
and reconciliation. Thanks to our in-laws for holding down the fort!

Day 324 - Friday, November 20, 2009

The magic of soap and water.

Day 323 - Thursday, November 19, 2009

Another beautiful day - so Marlee and "Flower" enjoyed some sun time in the back yard (along with C & C & K)

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Day 322 - Wednesday, November 18, 2009

My colourful Marlee and I went out for some 1:1 time while Matt was at play practice. She picked out lots of things she liked but ended up spending most of her time looking at greeting cards. She particularly liked the musical ones. What a great time!

Day 321 - Tuesday, November 17, 2009

The washing machine is here! The washing machine is here! After the washing machine broke (making an extremely loud rumbling inside) and we had a repair person deem it more expensive to fix then to replace and after looking at 6 or 7 stores looking at new and used models, we settled on spending the least amount of money on a new one that was exactly the same as our old model. 2 weeks without a washing machine is a long time (thanks mom for letting us use yours!)

Day 320 - Monday, November 16, 2009

It's amazing how quickly the laundry seems to pile up when you STILL don't have a washing machine.

Sunday, November 15, 2009

Day 319 - Sunday, November 15, 2009

Tooth #10 came out today! He was MOST excited!

Saturday, November 14, 2009

Day 318 - Saturday, November 14, 2009

After 5 years of living here we have finally decided to move forward and put up the hand rail to the basement (after its painted of course). I think the walls will thank us.

Friday, November 13, 2009

Day 317 - Friday, November 13, 2009

Getting cozy for quiet reading time.

Thursday, November 12, 2009

Day 316 - Thursday, November 12, 2009

I love days when the kids are actually interested in playing games together rather then requesting to watch tv all the time (not that they get to!)

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Day 315 - Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Proud to wear a poppy. Proud to be a Canadian. Blessed to be free.

Monday, November 9, 2009

Day 314 - Tuesday, November 10, 2009

A Marlee masterpiece before it goes completely black I'm sure.

Day 313 - Monday, November 9, 2009

Axel F and 500 Miles are the current dance favourites.

Sunday, November 8, 2009

Day 312 - Sunday, November 8, 2009

The kids are stilling feeling the effects of the H1N1 vaccine they got yesterday.

Saturday, November 7, 2009

Day 311 - Saturday, November 7, 2009

Drew was so happy that Matt finally consented to wear this rugby shirt. He bought it ages ago but Matt would never wear it. I think it made his day.

Friday, November 6, 2009

Day 310 - Friday, November 6, 2009

Nothing better then a little 1:1 hockey with dad.

Thursday, November 5, 2009

Day 309 - Thursday, November 5, 2009

We got enough hail today for collecting and shovelling and a whole lot of entertainment.

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Day 308 - Wednesday, November 4, 2009

The picnic theme continues. This time they have moved to the dirty garage floor, with the chalk drawings and the pylons. What will they think of next?

Tuesday, November 3, 2009

Day 307 - Tuesday, November 3, 2009

Our washing machine broke down after 5 years. After a few VERY LOUD days we called a repair person in and of course it costs more to fix then to replace. It's amazing to see that our laundry room can actually look this tidy [and empty!].

Day 306 - Monday, November 2, 2009

The news and internet has so much information about the swine flu or rather H1N1. I just don't know what to believe and am very confused...

Sunday, November 1, 2009

Day 305 - Sunday, November 1, 2009

Marlee loves to make her own videos and watch them over and over and over...
