Day 89 - 2010

The kids were fortunate to get some welcome baby brother gifts as well and this one kept them entertained quite nicely with Nana Jan who came in to help with the kids for the day (and days to come!)

The kids were fascinated by the hospital room and all the gadgets. Matt took lots of pictures to show his class.

One day to go.

Day 82 - 2010

While we were eating lunch today we heard a strange crash. No, it turns out it wasn't the result of Drew's handiwork but I believe a faulty clasp on the wire holder. Amazingly the glass didn't break - I hope IKEA will give me a new frame!

Day 81 - 2010

Marlee is totally into TROUBLE - when she can't get one of us to play she'll even play a few people all at once. She seems to think she gets more 6's when she uses her feet. I'm not sure if that is a proven fact though.

Day 80 - 2010

A new crazy get-up by actor extraordinaire Mateo!!!

Day 79 - 2010

Drew finally got around to putting up my Year-in-review photos. Shortly into the project he realized his measurements were a bit off - but he was able to rectify the problem...

Day 78 - 2010

I just like this one of Cierra from today at the park.

Day 77 - 2010

Marlee originally didn't want to come outside to enjoy ANOTHER day of amazing temperatures but when I showed her we could move the picnic table so she could still do her crafts... well, she changed her mind. She does love her crafts.

Day 76 - 2010

It wouldn't be St Patrick's Day around here without green pancakes and theme dishes. Shhh though - I forgot the Lucky Charms!

Day 75 - 2010

Another beautiful day of teen temperatures! We couldn't ask for a better March break. We've had picnic lunches, and most of the day outside. Awesome!

Day 74 - 2010

Eager to be rid of the last bit of snow, the boys took to chopping it off the lawn. With temperatures like today (17 degrees) it won't last long anyway!

Day 73 - 2010

It looks like March break is going to be all about sleeping in the tent.

Day 72 - 2010

We had a bit of a reunion at Kim and Kerry's tonight - and took on some Wii dance program. It was actually a lot of fun and some good exercise. Go Drew Go!

Day 71 - 2010

Marlee rode a two-wheeler all by herself today!

Day 70 - 2010

Matthew is sharing some funny parts of the latest Wimpy Kid book he's reading with Drew and I. He got up at 6am yesterday and read most of it before school. He can't wait for the movie to come out next week. I love it although it can also be a huge distraction for him (wonder where he gets that from???)

Day 69 - 2010

I spent a majority of the day working on a display case with another parent (Lori) at the kid's school while volunteering. I was in Marlee's class in the morning and then finished up the letters while doing safe arrival. It is a collection of their work from a Creative Clay workshop presented by the local art gallery. We got quite a few compliments!

Day 68 - 2010

Our first view of spring - in the school gardens. Exciting!

Day 67 - 2010

I was on snacks for MOPS today and I made Pillsbury Cinnamon Buns. They didn't quite work out properly. I was running out of time and had to get the kids to school and turned the oven off earlier then they were done. I had hoped they would finish in the heat but not quite so. Now I know to budget my time better! They were still okay just not quite what they should be....

Day 66 - 2010

We each had to have another Beaver Tail (our second of the weekend) before we left - even though they were $5 each! Scrumptious!

Saturday, March 6, 2010

Day 65 - 2010

Marlee demonstrating how to eat a strawberry (her pick with Turtle ice cream and cones). That's our Marlee!

Day 64 - 2010

The game Trouble was a huge hit in our down time and when they were ready to hit the slopes? They had an amazing time. More details will be here.

Day 63 - 2010

We began our 7 hour car trip to Tremblant today. Marlee has become quite adept at making herself comfortable and ready to go. She was the first one ready this morning - and look - drink + music + pillow = comfort!

Day 62 - 2010

I really enjoyed attending Matt's field trip to do mapping skills today at the nearby conservation park. We had a blast although it was a lot more trudging through snow then I anticipated. I definitly got my exercise today. I love that as a SAHM I can do this.

Day 61 - 2010

We are still celebrating Canada and the olympics with a few decorations (the flags have become toys and didn't stay in the pots for long). It has made me think that it is time for the Christmas lights to come down though - we seem to be the only house with them still lit (even though we did "say" that the red ones were for Valentine's Day)

Day 60 - 2010

I don't know what it is but our counter is a magnet for the kids. Technically not safe but I have given up on the issue. Not a battle I'm choosing to fight.
