Elfie Magoo’s 2015 Adventures: Week 2

Elfie Magoo is still at it, entertaining us with her adventures each morning! Here’s what she got up to this past week:

December 14: We caught Elfie Magoo staying up late trying to finish her Christmas craft, a Popsicle stick snowflake! Baby E and I helped her finish it in the morning.

December 15th: Sneaking in a little workout before bed. Preparing for all those Christmas dinners and treats to come!

December 16th: Coloring is all the rage these days, and can be very relaxing. Even Elfie needs a little stress relief as Christmas draws near!

December 17th: The closer we get to Christmas, the busier things get for Elfie Magoo. Here we caught her sneaking a little nap with a pillow of marshmallows.

December 18th: Looks like Elfie Magoo just hopped out of the bath!

December 19th: Elfie Magoo was swinging from the doorway when we found her this morning!

December 20th: What a crafter! This morning we found Elfie Magoo cutting out paper snowflakes to decorate our house!

Baby E continues to love the search for Elfie Magoo every morning! We love finding out what Elfie has been up to!

Exploring Victoria & Sidney during the holidays

Christmas is one of my husband and I’s favorite times of the year. The decorations, beautiful trees, incredible meals, time with family and friends … I’d actually say it’s my very favorite time of year! Summer time is a close second!

Both Sidney and Victoria have tons of activities for families during the holiday season. Here are some of our favorites, and a few new ones that we hope to try out this year:

Exploring Parksville & Qualicum with a Toddler

The air is starting to feel cool, and I can see the rain clouds hovering today. As Fall approaches, I’m thinking back to our incredible summer filled with boating, swimming, and exploring. This summer, our family of three took a vacation to Parksville/Qualicum for 5 nights. Parksville is one of our favorite summer destinations. For a family of water babies, it’s the perfect get-away!

My husband and I had enjoyed a few summer vacations up island before Baby E was born. But this was our first time with Baby E! We stayed at the Sunrise Ridge Resort, which we really enjoyed. We had a nice 1-bedroom place with a pull-out couch, kitchen island, stove/dishwasher/microwave, patio, and BBQ! The resort has a pool, and a path down to the beach. It was a great home base for all of our adventures!
