Day 120 - 2010

Marlee, C and I stopped by the waterfront to watch them load the boats into the water. It was really fascinating to watch the whole procedure.

Day 119 - 2010

The line up to see Smitty went around the whole building. Dad and Drew waited in line while I fed Mitchell with mom. Mom and Dad treated Drew and I for Drew's upcoming birthday. It reminded me of all the days we lined up for concerts while mentoring the youth. We saw some great concerts then!

Day 118 - 2010

The boys and their serious morning discussion over breakfast. Matthew is ready and waiting to wake daddy up every morning so that they can eat their cereal together.

Day 117 - 2010

The kids were occupied for quite a while with the wax sticks that K brought over.

Day 116 - 2010

Mom and dad brought over the divvy they brought back from the USA. All the things we can't buy here. Yumm!

Day 115 - 2010

There is nothing like messing around with daddy - especially when you get to go upside down.

Day 114 - 2010

We celebrated Sam's birthday at their house today after Matt's ball hockey game. We got her a gift inspired by Everybody Loves Money, an affiliation of the Flylady. It was the book Diary of a Wimpy Kid (one of Matt's favourites right now) with a message encoded inside directing her to find some additional cash. She was quite impressed.

Day 113 - 2010

Matthew's current favourite breakfast cereal - especially when eaten with dad. It has to be in this bowl, filled to the top with milk and any leftover milk goes in his sippy cup to be drank later.

Day 112 - 2010

So sad when the snack falls in the sand at the park.

Day 111 - 2010

Spring means visiting the green park and the spinning flower again.

Day 110 - 2010

Kristy treated me to a pedicure! I think it has been a few years since I have had one done. What a treat. BTW - documenting A Week in the Life. More posted at forsuchatimeasthis...

Day 109 - 2010

Matthew has been wanting me to bring Mitchell into his class for show and tell ever since he was born. I finally made it today. The kids were really neat about it. They had some questions themselves and the teachers helped it along as well. All in all we spent about 15 minutes there (Mitchell slept the whole time) but Matthew was pleased as punch. I think it made his day.

Day 108 - 2010

We got free tickets from the school to see a variety/ magic show at the college. We gave some other tickets to a few friends and watched the show together. It was quite entertaining for us all - kids and adults alike - and a fun way to spend the afternoon together. One of those things that you really aren't sure if you want to go to but ends up being a good time. Thank goodness!

Day 107 - 2010

We were a little late in getting out of the house but we made it out to the lunch sitting (pancakes and sausages) at the Elmvale Maple Syrup Festival. It was well worth the wait - and the company was pretty good too =)

Day 106 - 2010

Andrea has loaned us her fabulous stroller - it means Mitchell can lie down and doesn't need to be buckled in to go everywhere (perfect for back and forth to school!).

Day 105 - 2010

Evidence of blue ring pops!

Day 104 - 2010

Bubble days are back!

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Day 103 - 2010

Matt donned his goalie gear and took on the boys.

Day 102 - 2010

Our neighbours had their baby - a girl named Josie - and their lawn was decorated with the big stork, flamingos and other caricatures. I'm sorry I missed the photo op!

Day 101 - 2010

Lately when Matt is mad at us (or the world) he has taken to hiding under the cushions and having a good cry. It can be big and it can be little. Go figure.

Day 100 - 2010

Wow Day 100 already!

I snuck this one of Drew getting ready for his run. The kids did NOT think he should run with just the red shirt (or the shorts underneath but that wouldn't have been polite to show). He started running in November and is planning to run a 1/2 marathon at the end of May.

Day 99 - 2010

We walked for the first time to school since Mitchell was born to pick up the kids after school. I'm feeling really good but hoping not to push it. It was great to be out and about though!

Day 98 - 2010

Marlee has been fascinated with all of my old earrings (yes why do I still have them? I only seem to wear the one pair all the time!) Anyway I have two holes in one ear and three in the other and she likes me to wear "special" jewelry all day - like my Christmas or Halloween pins and earrings. This is especially pretty when she has done my hair. Oh I am glamour girl all the way! (Sorry - no photo)

Day 97 - 2010

Kristy dropped off some more "cast-offs" for the kids. As you can see they didn't make it past the front door. This box was polly pockets, littlest pet shop and bratz accessories. ALL of the kids were in heaven - before school and after!

Tuesday, April 6, 2010

Day 96 - 2010

It's amazing how a simple box can occupy so much time. Marlee picked this out from the grocery store a few days ago, painted it today and it became a great seat (after some blankets and pillows were added inside). Now if only storage were as easy!

Day 95 - 2010

Some dollar store activities are worth their weight in gold. The kids spent a majority of the day playing with the model clay and making marvelous creations.

Day 94 - 2010

Happy Easter! He has risen! He has Risen Indeed. Just as He said He would! We went to mom and dad's for dinner. Drew's family joined us and the kids had a hunt outside. Matt was impressed with his loot.

Saturday, April 3, 2010

Day 93 - 2010

We joined friends at the church for a road hockey game and then headed to Mac's for frosties.

Friday, April 2, 2010

Day 92 - 2010

Good Friday!

We opened an Easter present early so that we could have some family time. We've wanted a better goalie net for a while.

Day 91 - 2010

Cierra likes her chances to hold Mitchell too.
