My little Spiderman went to his school friends Birthday this part weekend.
He had an amazing time.
Maybe a little too much fun :)

clay hand building

You know what you want to make.
You need very little help.

If you get to use tools you are thrilled.
Yes, yes, you are big now and can use the knife tool.
Your little brother is a gem and ever so sweetly throws his toys on the floor 1000 times to entertain himself.
He loves watching his big brother do ANYTHING.
Nice work.

-time to laugh
We had time for us and it was GREAT.

new designers.....

It is the school fundraiser tonight. Our first one to attend.

I helped our Casa make glass fusion jewelry. They did all the work I just turned on the kiln :)

Definitely one of a kind works of art!

hello park

It was your very first stroller ride today.

You smiled and laughed and seem so big.

It seems like it was just yesterday your big brother sat in that seat.

Now he hops and jumps along so confidently.
So happy.
So eager.
So full of life.Hello Park! We missed you!

St Patrick's Day Rainbows

We started last week with colouring pasta.And ended up sharing smiles and a quick fun craft with friends for St Patrick's Day!

The coloured noodles make a beautiful coloured necklace.
The large noodles are great for practising fine motor skills.

And for counting, sorting, rolling, making patterns....

Even Baby Brother wanted to get in on the rainbow fun!

Sorry my littlest lucky charm, maybe next year :)

My Lucky Charms!

choosing joy

Love these boys. They are my happiness.

Love the quote. For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you don't enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are that you're not going to be very happy. If someone bases his happiness or unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn't going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness. –Andy Rooney

Check out my super cool sled adaption-True Canadian style.. I just popped the car seat right into the sled! I had been using blankets and pillows but poor baby brother likes to snooze outside and couldn't get comfortable with all the drafts. So..... ta da!

march snow storm


Oh Boy.
LOTS of snow.

Fluffy snow like I remember playing in when I was small.

Barely -6 and beautiful.

Fresh, white, fluffy fun.

I am not a big fan of snow but the fun from this little boy was contagious :)
