Weekend Recap

Another snowy weekend! But I swear we are on the good side of winter now – or am hopeful we are 😉


Avery had a Valentine’s Day party in the morning at preschool so I snuck out of work to go. We did crafts, and they had a photo booth to go in with their friends – but Avery only wanted me in the photo with her. Lucky me!

It was a fun time 🙂

My brother’s girlfriend bought us hockey tickets for that night so we had a fun night out! Chloe even got a game puck passed to her from the penalty box – this was after she was making faces at the other team in the box. Oh Chloe.


We had a late start to the day – no complaints, when everyone slept until almost 8am!

We had a quick coffee pit stop before getting groceries:

Both girls wanted to play outside, so out we all went. I built a little hill off our deck for the sled – Avery loved it! Chloe was not impressed with all the snow, it came up to her waist in some areas!

Chloe had a nap while Chad and Avery built a snow fort in the front yard from all the snow that was shoveled off the driveaway.

Later we baked Valentine’s Pop Tarts – so easy and the girls love them!

And then wore off the sugar jumping in Chloe’s crib:

We had friends over that night which was a nice change from our usual Saturday nights of movie watching and falling asleep – HA,


We all got good sleeps – again! I swear my kids sleep better/longer in spring and summer. As soon as winter hit they started waking up early – weird. Chad headed to the gym while the girls and I did some crafting.

We also attempted Valentine’s photos…spoiler alert I did not get one good one. Win some, lose some!

I started my run (20km) once Chad got home. It was nice to “only run 20km” – I am actually pretty done with long runs at this point. It was also nice to only watch one movie for my run 😉

I got ready and did a deep clean in our ensuite while Chad and Avery played outside for a couple hours and Chloe napped.

We ran a few errands later then had my Mom for supper, she made me two new signs – she is the BEST!

And like that it is Monday tomorrow!
