Day 31 - 2010

For the second week in a row we let the kids "con" us into MacDonald's for lunch after church and the library. Not a good habit to be developing but I have to admit I do enjoy it too.

Day 30 - 2010

We met early for small group and the kids took advantage of the ice rink near our friend's house. Marlee didn't last that long but Matt enjoyed playing some hockey (that is until the other side was winning -we are still working on teammanship obviously). As for us moms, we got to keep warm in the house.

Day 29 - 2010

It was a COLD one today!

Day 28 - 2010

A common occurence lately. We both find ourselves needing a short doze sometime between 5:30 and 7pm - giving us enough pep to get dinner on the table, homework done and/or the kids ready for bed. Who am I kidding? We still stay up until midnight every night!

Day 27 - 2010

Doctor visit day at 30 weeks. All is going well - weight gain good, the baby is measuring on the big side. A c-section date has been booked for March 22.

Day 26 - 2010

Marlee was playing with the music and all of sudden she disappeared and returned with a new get-up on - complete with a hat I can never get her to wear but I think is so adorable. I think she thinks it goes with the rock star persona.

Day 25 - 2010

These are some of the winter decorations we have up until we change to Valentines' Day decor.

Day 24 - 2010

Skiing lessons were interesting tonight as there was a lot of rain. It made for quick line-ups and thankfully the kids didn't seem to mind. I spent most of the time in the chalet - using my laptop and reading - Love that! Afterwards we went to my parents' for dinner (loving that - dinner ready - no prep!) and Matt is becoming quite the connoisseur for helping in the kitchen and dishing out dessert. He really wants to be involved.

Day 23 - 2010

we had small group at our house tonight and Drew found himself answering questions with a young friend about our sink plumbing and the workings of our water filter.

Day 22 - 2010

As Drew would put it, I've been busy nesting again these last few days. I prefer to see it as something I always do! It was about time that I went through the box of woodsies and other wooden craft materials from the church and sorted it all. Now all of the shapes have their own baggies, the Popsicle sticks are all sorted by size and we got rid of a full box of materials that will not be used. YEY!

Day 21 - 2010

The men working on the telephone(?) box stirred up quite a bit of discussion with the crew today. They were setting up when we were on our way to school and were still hard at work on our way home after 4pm (and man was it cold!!!)

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Day 20 - 2010

I took some photos of things I hope to post on Kijiji or Craig's List one of these days. We just have too much stuff! Drew thinks I am nesting.... I think it is just purging and long overdue.

Day 19 - 2010

Club Penguin seemed to occupy everyone today after a miserable and cold walk home from school.

Day 18 - 2010

LONG overdue toy washing of Dr B's office toys. I'm not sure why I put it off sometimes. It really only takes about 1/2 hour of actual work. These have sat in the garage for at least 2 months. It feels good to get it done though and clear up the garage a bit.

Day 17 - 2010

Ski season and ski lessons began today! Hopefully those smiles will last all season. I, sadly, got a rebate on my pass this year. I'm not figuring that I will want to ski that much in my condition. Thankfully I can just put it to use next year.

Day 16 - 2010

Today was painting party day at the church. We had a great turnout and did a tonne of work in one day. The result is a very bright, cheery new preschool room. The kids helped and when they grew tired, they took in a movie in the library. It was a very productive but LONGGGG day (with Bible study afterwards!)

Day 15 - 2010

One of Cierra's regular chores is to empty the dishwasher. Oh and she is currently loving the yellow Adidas hoody she picked out for herself for Christmas.

Day 14 - 2010

Matt has been taking 1:3 skating lessons with friends (1 instructor:3 kids). He has become a lot more confident and loves going FAST! I wish we'd seen if Marlee could have taken part too. They have some really good drills - using hoola hoops, foam octagon cubes, bean bags and pylons. I'm sure we could have done it on our own but the consistency of having to come to a lesson is needed at our end.

Day 13 - 2010

Marlee is going through a wonderful phase of being huggy and a mommy's girl. I have to say couldn't enjoy it more.

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Day 12 - 2010

Matt developed a fever over night and has become a little obsessed with checking it. We kept him home from school which seemed a little silly because he certainly acted okay.

It did give him the ability to put together his Indiana Jones set. Do you think it may have been a ploy?

Monday, January 11, 2010

Day 11 - 2010

To say that Matt was THRILLED to have his Indiana Jones Lego set arrive in the mail is an understatement. He used his birthday money (a toonie party described here) to purchase the set online and then pestered every day to know when it would get here. Drew very patiently made a map and showed him how the package was tracked all the way here. It couldn't happen fast enough.

Day 10 - 2010

Matt got a game set for Christmas and has been back into the swing of checkers.

Day 9 -2010

Part of the aftermath of 16 kids at small group. It was a wild one - part of the reason we are now multiplying for 3 of the 4 weeks each month.

Friday, January 8, 2010

Day 8 - 2010

28 weeks or 7 months. Moving right along!

Thursday, January 7, 2010

Day 7 - 2010

Sometimes I wonder about these kids. Where they get their theatrics from I don't know - well yes I do. Their aunt and their father. Here they were dancing and showing off their riiiibbbs.

Wednesday, January 6, 2010

Day 6 - 2010

Back to school, back to friends and back to snow play. They have missed this hill!

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

Day 5 - 2010

We finally got most of the Christmas decorations put away (well boxed up) - we just have the tree to go!

Monday, January 4, 2010

Day 4 - 2010

Marlee is beginning to actually play some Wii herself. It's quite comical to watch the hips go - she definitely has more rhythm then me!

Sunday, January 3, 2010

Day 3 - 2010

The Puffle Craze - Matt purchased some puffles with his birthday money, spurred on by his obsession with the Club Penguin website.

Saturday, January 2, 2010

Day 2 -2010

All flattery aside, it was wonderful to be able to sleep in. I'm glad the kids are at a stage where they are fairly self-sufficient. This is going to change in the household soon.

Friday, January 1, 2010

Day 1 - 2010

We spent New Year's Day with Aunt Ya-Ya - taking in some movies, some stories and chillaxin!
