I can't wait......let the days of no parenting begin!

Have a fabulous weekend everyone, the weather in Edmonton is supposed to be fantastic!

New Layouts

Here are some of my newest layouts..


Sarah and Claire. "you can shine no matter what you are made of"

Max and Niyah "you melt my heart"

"A happy Heart makes the face cheerful"

This is my Mom teaching Sarah how to knit.


Easter weekend has long come and gone and I apologize for taking so long to update. It amazes me sometimes how life just flies by so quickly. This year we had another amazing weekend with Uncle Justin, Auntie Tara and my beautiful niece Claire. The kids played and played and played!!! Uncle Justin took Max to Toysrus to pick out a belated bday present and he chose the largest nerf gun EVER!! It holds 35 darts and he quite enjoys shooting them all at once from the top of the stairs!!! Everywhere you look in this house there is a nerf dart.
Easter morning, the kids had scavenger hunt clues to find things. The adults giggled when the girls got stumped (we thought we were so smart) and it was pretty cute when Max found stuff the Easter bunny hid in Daddy's underwear drawer!

It was a great weekend and I was so sad watching their truck drive away on Monday morning. I miss my brother's humor, my sister-in law's kindness and love and especially I miss my nieces sweetness!! Can't wait to see them again this summer.

The Great Ladybug hunt!

I am absolutely LOVING spring break! We had Carter and Luca come and spent the day with us and the kids had the most amazing day. Not a single fight, not a single tear....just plenty of giggles. Its so nice to not have any fighting on playdates, its happened in the past (not with C & L) and it can be so stressful.
The weather has been quite nice so the kids decided to play in the backyard which in turn started the "great ladybug hunt".
It was the 5 year olds against their older siblings with the younger ones coming out on top. I believe Max said they caught a billion and Luca, 7 billion. Too cute!
Here are some pics of each of them with their very first ladybugs.

My favorite kids in the world.....
