Laundry Helper And A New Haircut


I did some laundry last night and had it all loaded up in the laundry basket, folded, to put away when the girls were awake this morning. And I forgot it was there. I put Baby C down and when I turned around, she was “helping” me sort it…I guess I’ll be folding it again!


This little girl left the house with me this afternoon. We got to have a special J and Mommy hot chocolate and then we went to the hair dresser…


And this is the little girl who came home with me! Her cute new hair sure looks a lot different.

City Lost


It was hiding on Tuesday, but this morning Vancouver is pretty much gone…

New City View


Downtown from our living room…the view is a bit different from our old living room!

Foggy City And Cheap Toys


It was a bit eerie taking J to school this morning – the city was cloaked in fog.


Baby C has two new favourite toys – a stack of used gift cards that J had as a baby/toddler and the boxes from our salt and pepper mills. She loves them more than any of the “real” toys she has…isn’t that always the way!

Ten Little Fingers With Bop


We had dinner with my mom and dad tonight and Baby C and my dad spent some time reading her favourite book, Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes.

Sunday Morning Imagination


So, on Sunday mornings, Hello Kitty, some My Little Ponies, Kermit the Frog, a Filly Elf horse and a duck get gas at a floating gas station and then go for Lego ice cream. That's it...I wish my to do list for today was that short! (And the skate board that floats on water is pretty cool!)

Chutes And Ladders


My mom and dad popped by for a quick visit this afternoon. J was super excited to find someone else to play Chutes and Ladders with!

Channelling Ray


While J was at school, I spent some time securing the furniture to the walls in her room…Alex was surprised to see the way I did it…but they’re so secure, they’re not going anywhere, so it’s all good…

Solo Spot It


We’ve been playing a lot more games since we moved and J absolutely loves Spot It. They had been playing it at school and she got her own for Christmas. When we don’t have time to play with her, she’s been brushing up on her skills by playing on her own. She’s really hard to beat!

New Scarf


I made a baby blanket out of this wool to send to a friend in the fall. J wanted that blanket more than anything and I promised her that when I have time, I will get some more of that wool and make her a kid-sized version of the blanket…in the meantime I realized there was enough wool left that I could make something for her. She was SO excited to find this scarf waiting for her before school this morning.

A Curtain With Legs


This happens a lot now…she’s not sure what to do with curtains since our old place had blinds…I’m trying to convince here she doesn’t really want to hang out under them like this!

Converted To Knitting Storage


In its previous life, this little table was a telephone stand – the telephone sat on top, pens and paper were in the drawer and telephone books were in the cabinet…I think it’s going to be home to my current knitting projects…we still have a lot of stuff to sort out, so that might change, but for now, that’s the plan!
