Not so healthy this week, for our treat. We tried the rolo on the pretzel idea, topped with some yummy smarties! They were good...too good.

My 6 year old little monkey has done it again! Now she has taught herself how to do an unassisted back bend! What will it be next week?

TJs friend rescued a baby robin whose nest fell out of the tree in her yard. Her daytime babysitter didn't want to watch it, so we took up the challenge. It was a sweet little thing who chirped loudly when it was hungry...which was about every 45 minutes. Still, it was a neat thing to experience!

Teachers may be striking, but we are taking advantage of extra time together! The girls packed this wonderful picnic all by themselves and we took it out to a park we don't visit often. It was one of those blissful afternoons.

It's only May and it's warm enough for the slip 'n' slide? Gotta love it!! Bring on the splash!

TJ loves to share things with me. She often finds me to share the latest project she is working on, or to tell me about the new things happening in her life. I love every second of it, and I'm praying that it continues, even through the teenage years. I always want to know how my girls are feeling and what they are thinking about.

Our kids loved having the "T" family over for a play day! We snapped some fun pictures and enjoyed every minute together. This is one fantastic family!
May 22, 2011
Activity time! we made some fun rainbow crayons with our crayon "bits" we had lying around all over the house. We got the "bits" picked up AND used them to create something fun! Bonus!
May 21, 2011
A long-overdue scrapbook day at the church! I only finished 6 pages, but I had a wonderful time visiting with friends and just creating...uninterrupted!
May 20, 2011
We made our appearance at this park a few times this week! It's full of fun things to explore and play on, and it's even more fun when the kids have friends of theirs to play with...like the Northcotts and Tondevolds!

Lazy hot days call for one thing... popsicles! If they are blue with soft vanilla ice cream in the center? Even  better!!

When TJ babyits the kids, she really goes all out. Okay, so Lyndon was home, too, but TJ and her friend kept their sisters and the "C" kids busy with games, crafts, and even a magic show completely with prizes!

Weeks of practicing and hard work led to a phenomenal night of song and entertainment! All of the girls were amazing in their roles in the "Joust" musical.

This is our take on a 'healthy' Family Home Evening treat! We all loved them. Nothing tastes quite as good as some fresh fruit!
May 15, 2011
We love our family walks together, especially when the sun is shining and the kids are smiling :) I think it's time like these we will always remember!

I got my "sew" on and created a cute little outfit for JJ, including a matching headband. Now she is oh, so FASHIONAL!

Retro day, man! Our girls chose to dress as gals from the 50s, 60s and 80s! I miss days like these at school.

TJ looking every bit the part of the 'librarian' for a skit she and her friend performed for the youngsters in school!

More gardening! Getting our garden ready for summer is so rewarding. Seeing our tulips blooming and the rest of the perennials growing makes the heart feel good!

Enjoying my Mother's Day gift - a converter for our van so I can listen to my iPod! Hello tunes!!

Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn't music.  ~William Stafford
We can learn a lot from children. Live life to it's fullest and enjoy every moment!

Technology has brought so many blessings, like video chatting with Mom on Mother's Day when she is 100s of kms away! LOVE IT! It's a wonderful time to be living in!

I love being a part of our Stake. We had a wonderful time at our Stake Preparedness Fair, which was a great success. I always come away learning something new and getting excited to be more prepared for emergencies! We know that they happen to everyone, and more and more lately, it seems.

Green grass, blue skies, warm sunshine...Spring looks like it's sticking around! Time to jump for joy!

As the teachers walked off the job to protest their non-contract, we walked around the park, enjoying the sunshine and a day off together!

Our girls each won movie passes for their entries in the "Safety Poster" Contest at the WCB! You can't win if you don't enter, after all! :)

Highway robbery. Gas prices just keep on rising, and this is just the beginning! When summer hits, I'm sure we'll get close to $1.50/Litre. CRAZY!!


May 2, 2011

A huge windstorm blew our lights off our roof, so Lyndon spent the evening repairing them, while the girls and I did some much needed yard work! We have all the fun :)

A rousing family game of 'Mousetrap' is the perfect way to spend a Sunday evening!
