We had a lot of fun with Elfie the past couple of weeks! And once again she seems to have had a blast as well!Continue reading
Our family truly LOVES Christmas. We love everything about it: the music, the meals/desserts, the crafts, the decorations, the community events and activities, the time with family, the movies … it is without a doubt our favourite holiday of the year. With all of the current COVID restrictions here in B.C. (and all over the country/world), this Christmas is going to be a bit different than what we are used to. Many of our traditions, such as parades and family gatherings, are not allowed. The past nine months have been very tough (for both adults and children), therefore I am determined to do everything I can to make the holidays magical for my young children.Continue reading
We had an awesome second week with Elfie! The girls still hop out of bed in the morning and run first thing to find out what Elfie has been up to! Here are some of her activities from Week 2.Continue reading
Elfie is back, and our children couldn’t be happier! The girls even lost sleep the night before Elfie arrived – see Elfie’s Return: Bringing Joy to the family (and maybe just a few tears!) for more on this!Continue reading
Our eldest daughter started asking about Elfie’s arrival in early November. By mid-November, we had counted the days until Elfie’s arrival so many times that we decided to make a countdown calendar – for Elfie’s arrival and Christmas day!
Last night, the night of November 30th, our eldest was awake until 11:45pm. She could not stop thinking about Elfie’s return, and even came running out of her room once when she swore she heard Elfie on the roof, and later when thought she saw Elfie’s shadow move across the room!Continue reading
I can’t even believe I’m writing this, but our eldest daughter will be 7 soon. 7!! How did that even happen?! She’s at the age where she has a few items on her birthday wish list that she would be ecstatic to receive. The other suggestions are mine.
If you happen to be shopping for a gift for a 7-year old sometime in the future, here are some things I know would be a hit with my girl! And who am I kidding, this list is for future me as well. One day I’ll be looking for a gift for a 7-year old and I’ll have no idea what a 7-year old enjoys anymore!! Hopefully this list can help us both.Continue reading
Still enjoying Spring Break over here (at home in isolation of course!); not yet worrying about school work so much. We tried some new crafts, fun activities and cooking that we thought others might enjoy trying too!Continue reading
We’ve been taking it easy the past few days. Recognizing that it’s still technically Spring Break, we’ve been trying to relax a bit and just enjoy time together. But we have tried a few new fun activities that I want to share with you!Continue reading
Day 4 was a very quiet day. We were all tired, and just felt like taking it easy! We tried out a few new activities, but kept it pretty low key.Continue reading
At Home Learning Day 3! Another fun day with our girls. Daddy got the girls outside again for some fitness, and our eldest and I spent much of the afternoon crafting!Continue reading
