7th Heaven

We’re in the city this week, so obviously we’re going to make daily a few Slurpee runs. Today the kids got the ingenious idea to grab some of the coffee sleeves for their slurpee cups because they were so cold that frostbite was a…

This PIN is on fire!!

It’s true that sometimes I spend my time on my iPhone taking a brain break, pinning random things that pop up on those pinterest.com pages.  There are also times when I go searching the internet for something specific, and then pin the perfect thing…

When the Weather is Frightful

We’re under a snowfall advisory, the winds are blustery, and even my most avid winter adventurist only lasted 15 minutes outside today.  Inside isn’t much better what with our Tornado Two-year-old careening around the house and destroying everything in his path.  These are the…

The Countdown is On!

Only one month left until Christmas! I used to love Christmas.  I loved everything from the decorations to finding the perfect gift for each person on my list.  I loved spending every day from Thanksgiving to January 2nd immersed in all things Holiday.  Surrounded…

Satisfaction Guaranteed?

“[DisneyWorld’s] competition is anyone who raises customer expectations- because if someone else satisfies customers better than [them], no matter what type of business, [they] suffer by comparison.” It happens all the time.  You see an entire family in co-ordinating outfits, no one is arguing,…

Go West Young Fam

This past week we set out on the proverbial summer family road trip.  We packed ourselves and five children under the age of ten into a seven seater mini van and set out from Ontario to Saskatchewan.  If you’re Canadian you’re probably thinking: “Why…

“A” is for Appreciation

It’s that time again, the last chance to tell our teachers how much we appreciate everything they do.  I think about teacher appreciation gifts all year long, I really want to make sure my appreciation is expressed through something they will actually…appreciate.  This year…

Cut From the Same Cloth

    Today was the end of an era for us.  All of our girls have left kindergarten behind them.  I do my best to let each of our girls be their individual selves, but when Isabella was graduating from kindergarten I got the…

I Fancy that Nancy

Back in 2010 I had a little girl who loved to dress up in pink, ruffles, jewelry, hats, scarves, gloves, basically anything she could get her hands on.  The more girly the better.  You can imagine our excitement when we met another little girl,…

Get Outta Here

Spring can’t seem to decide if it wants to come out and play this year.  But our kids got tired of waiting. I am not a very outdoorsy person, but I’m working on learning to be.  So last summer we found a few walk-around-the-blocks…

We like to Party.

Isabella turned 8 in March. Eight. And we had a birthday first, our first slumber party. Yes we survived, and yes, we will do it again. I wanted to do up a post about the party right away, but so many things did not…

It’s What My Heart Looks Like

Usually my living room tends to look close to this.  I’ll admit I cleaned it up a bit before I took this picture.  There was a few days worth of clutter, (seriously how does stuff move around this place soooo much), and I vacuumed which isn’t…
