Snow Day and Mothers Day Tea


Last weekend the girls woke up to snow. Not just a little bit of snow, but a lot of snow!

It was so typical of my reaction…”Snow, I can’t believe it snowed. Man that sucks!”. Of course kids being kids have such a better outlook on life. Their thought: “Snow…best day ever!!!”.

Ballet Show – December 2011


The girls have both been in Ballet this year for the first time. Just the way the class times worked out, they are in different schools but luckily both are basically a few blocks from our house. Alyssa loves going to Ballet although she rarely tells us anything about the class or shows us anything . . . → Read More: Ballet Show – December 2011

Alyssa’s 5th Birthday, Halloween and Winter


A few weeks ago, we were in Edmonton to celebrate Alyssa’s birthday with Denise’s family. While we were there, we went to the park to play. While we were there a little boy walked up to Alyssa and had the following conversation:

Boy: “Hi, I’m Dutch”

Alyssa: “I am too”

Boy: “But I don’t . . . → Read More: Alyssa’s 5th Birthday, Halloween and Winter

First few weeks of school…

The first few weeks of school have gone pretty well. Kyla just loves going to school, but I guess being the 2nd kid makes it easier. I remember Alyssa crying a few times when she was about to be dropped off, and then mentioning she didn’t want to go at all during those first few . . . → Read More: First few weeks of school…

Summer Fun


We have been growing out Kyla’s hair a bit, and now she is able to grab a strand and pull it into her mouth. This evening after supper, Kyla was putting the strand into her mouth and Mommy said to her: “If you don’t stop that, I am going to cut it off”. Alyssa looked . . . → Read More: Summer Fun

Alyssa’s Last Day of Preschool


So Kyla’s latest saying goes as follows:

The pee is the drink The poop is the food And the flush is it swallowing!

The other night, Alyssa woke up from a nightmare. I went into her room to find out why she was so upset and the coversation was as follows (this was at . . . → Read More: Alyssa’s Last Day of Preschool

Finally some spring weather


The girls spent 5 days last week away from Mommy and Daddy (as they went to Vegas). The girls spent the week with Oma and Opa and apparently did wonderfully (which is great for both the girls and for Oma and Opa!!!).

This weekend we took the girls to Storybook Theatre, which Alyssa seemed to . . . → Read More: Finally some spring weather

Face Painting


This weekend, we took the girls to the new farmers market. We were just about ready to leave when Alyssa really wanted to get her face painted…so we got her face painted. Here she is during and after the face painting.

This lasted maybe 2 minutes before the sparkles and make-up around her . . . → Read More: Face Painting

Kyla’s Third Birthday


Alyssa for the last couple of month is now dressing herself, or at least asking (or demanding) the clothes she wears. Often she chooses well, but many times the clothes she decides to wear makes Mom cringe (and Daddy just thinks its cute). She also now asks to do her hair in pony tails, with . . . → Read More: Kyla’s Third Birthday

Christmas 2010


So awhile ago, we had Activia yogurt in our house and both girls tried it, and liked it. However, their digestive system didn’t and they reacted to the yogurt fairly “explosively”. So we haven’t bought or served them any since then…

OK, OK, its been far too long since my last post, especially when I . . . → Read More: Christmas 2010
