Weekend Recap

Currently we have snow – again. I am hoping this means we are going to skip straight to summer 😉 Spring we miss you!


At lunch I went to a thrift store and found some books for the girls. I am trying to focus on more lesson based books for them now, and found some great ones. Avery has always loved books:

We had a movie night and watched the (old) Disney Beauty and the Beast.


We had plans to go to an outdoor event for Earth Day and even though it was not too nice for it Chloe’s favourite place to play – Avery’s bed:

We had a quiet afternoon, I did housework and made muffins while Chloe napped and Avery played. We ran some errands after Chloe’s nap and that was our day!

This girl is so crazy at meal times, well all the time 😉

Later we had friends over to watch the hockey game 🙂


Like every week I said I was going to run outside and then did not…

6 miles on the treadmill instead.

You all should be VERY jealous of this girl’s hair these days..HA

After I tamed it:

Chad had a work thing all afternoon so the girls and I hung out at home, Chloe napped then we headed to the library.

Lunch snack plates are the best:

And I set up these files for the girls to organize artwork and anything I want to keep – all the way up to grade 12! I am such a nerd 😉

One of the things I miss about being at home – frequent library trips!

And like that the weekend was over – only a week until May!

    This weather put such a damper on the weekend. Seriously, the whole "April showers bring May flowers" better come true and it starts to get hot and sunny like, next week. I love that idea for filing for all the girls stuff. I have been thinking of finding some sort of memory box to put stuff for Liam as he grows up.

    Damn snow! I love your teepee! So cute. We love the gruffalo book! I need to start that filing cabinet for the kids, great idea. We love snack plates for the lunch over here too. I am jealous your kids sit for a movie!! ha

      It is a super cute book! I was happy to get to the library again – we have missed it!
      Avery loves movies so will sit great, Chloe sits for maybe 30 minutes then falls asleep or terrorizes us all 😉

    Sounds like a good weekend! Chloe's hair is so awesome. Also, Amelia wants to know if she can buy Avery's boots from her once she's grown out of them?! She said she'd pay top dollar, haha. They are the only ones that she will wear right now

      haha thank you, I tried to cut it yesterday and she would not stay still so it is still not great.
      They are A's favourite too! Avery has the tiniest feet – size 6 right now, a girl at dayhome who is not even two and her have the same boots, but hers are a 7 😉

        Same with Amelia! She's a size 6 too. I have no idea what size these boots are though as I can't find it anywhere on them (Alison passed them onto us)
