Happy Mothers Day!!!

Happy Mothers Day!!!
Today was one of my BEST days EVER!! My girls let me sleep in and then showered me in gifts I will treasure for ever. Emm gave me a bracelet and card she had made in school and Ely gave me a card and a sheet that has her hand prints on in that says "Moms little helper" and a book mark she made in school.  They sure do have creative teachers!! We spent the day together just puttering around the yard. Then I called my good friend and fellow Photographer Dallas Stickel and she came with us and took some WONDERFUL photos of my girls and I.  Thanks Dallas, they are amazing!!!
Being a "Mom" is the best job I've ever had and sometimes the hardest job. I wouldn't change a thing, I've got a wonderful husband that loves me "no matter what" and that says a lot!!! My girls are the greatest give I've ever received. I learnt from one of the BEST Mom's ever how to be a parent and she is one COOL Grandma!!!
Happy Mom's Day MOM, you're the BEST and I Love you to the Moon and Back (so do your granddaughters).

Garage Sale Time!!!

Well My first ever Garage Sale was a Success!!!  I sold stuff I wasn't sure would sell and stuff I was sure would go I still have. However, it was FUN! My girls played outside all weekend long and are burnt out and burnt!! I'm not sure what they ate or when but they never complained and did NOT want to come in at the end of the day!!! We have some tired kids and tired adults in our house! Mothers Day is going to be a day of REST in our home!!

Good Morning Everyone!!!

Good Morning!!!!

I was out for a walk with the dogs  on Thursday and this fella was sitting here just a "honking" away. He sat there for quite some time letting everyone know that the day was starting.

Daddy's Girl

Almost 7 and still Daddy's little girl.  It's not often that this one falls asleep on us anymore but the other night Dad's lap just seemed to be the place for comfort!

Camo Ely

Best of Friends

Each town we've lived in Emmarsyn has easily and readily made new friends. This town is no different for her. However Ely is a bit slower to meet friends and is shy at first until she gets comfortable with people. Next to her friend Abby in GP, McKenzie is one of Ely's best friends!! We live in a great neighbourhood with lots of kids very close to the age of our girls and I know once McKenzie's family moves in these two will be next to inseparable!!!  Thanks Kim for taking these photos today. I just tweeked them a bit.

Chaotic Cousins

Saturday was a bright sunny day, thankfully. At the last minute we decided to load up and head out to visit the gang at B.V. The girls have cousins on their dads side but they are far away and we don't always get to see them. They do have cousins at BV and they love to play with Zachary and Brady. From the time we arrived until way past dark/bedtime they were busy biking, running, chasing, playing with the boys. Today I have two very tired little girls. They are very lucky to have "chaotic cousins" on both sides of the family.

Meeting of the Minds.

Sorry I'm a couple days late with my posts this weekend.  Friday was a busy day and once again the wind was howlin' and NO fire was had in the neighbourhood. However, there did seem to be a lot of "meetings" going on. First the 4&5yr olds were busy planning things then the 6 and up age group got together.  They certainly are a busy bunch of kids.

G'night Thursday

G'night Thursday!!! What a busy and FUN day we had today. Met with a future client (day home) and helped a friend with an errand. Ely had a friend over for some Fun both girls played outside after school and homework was finished. Emm had gymnastics and mastered a new move on the beam. Nicole and I shaved 3 minutes off of our 5km time from  Tues. All in all  a GREAT day today!! Needless to say I'm borrowing this sunset from another evening as my camera didn't get out of the house today.

A new poser!!

A friendly fella indeed. He came right up to the fence and gave me both sides of his face then stayed there while I took his photo.

A new visitor

There's a field full of horses just up the road from our house they have 3 new babies. The newest one was really close to the fenceline this afternoon so the girls and I took a closer look. This new fella looked like he was a bit chilly today.

This fella came in for a closer look at us.

Playin' in the Mud

Another weekend has came and went in a gust of wind no less. So much for our "weekly fires" not to be had this weekend with the wind howling at us. The hubby and girls are down with colds so today was a very "lazy Sunday" in our home. My nose was planted in my book and my camera forgotten for today. Here's some photos taken earlier in the week when we were out cuttin and stacking wood.

My girls are growin' up fast.

What to do with Wind??

The sun is out, the sky is blue and whatever you do leave your hat at home!! The wind is GALE Force at best.  Ran an errand today at Walmart and carts are rolling all over the parking lot. Nevertheless the kids did NOT seemed to be affected by it. They were busy playing with shovels, pails, bikes, and their imaginations!! Well all except my Emm. she seemed to be bored with the day as her BFF was not home today and she seemed lost. Love her pouty face though.

Nap Time

Nap Time at our  house today. Not sure who's keepin who warm and toasty here. Buster is usually not too far from Ely, he certainly loves to cuddle with her.

Ooop Think I woke him up.

Stacking Wood or NOT

The other night we were out cutting wood and while my hubby cut the wood and my girls stacked it I happened to wander away with my camera.  A good friend of ours owns an acreage and there's all sorts of old buildings, large nests and trees to explore and capture.  Perhaps next time I'll actually be of some help and stack the wood too.

Painted Toes

Ahh the things a Dad will do for his girls!! The other day the girls and I were painting our toe nails  and they asked if they could paint my fingernails.  I quickly detoured their attention to their Dad whose toes were bare. I really should've had my camera handy as it was quite the picture with each girl painting one foot. He's quite the Dad!!

The cats in the bag

I was sitting at the computer this afternoon and Buster happened to be under my feet. Him or Sam usually lay there while I work at the computer no big deal. Then I heard a rustling noise and looked down and here was the cat with his head in a bag!! Nothing in this bag but an empty egg carton. He played in this bag for quite some time. I must admit it was quite amusing.

Soo close and yet so far

Miss Apphia!!

Well I've been a bit "lazy" with my posts this weekend. I'm sooo close to completing my "365" posts and still it seems so far away. Thursday, Friday and Saturday were very busy at our house and well Sunday just seemed to get away from me as well.  So here's to a new week of staying on top of my postings!! My "year" was up the end of February and still it's taking me forever to finish that 365!!! Thanks for being patient and staying with me.

She loves Ely and Sam

Two little monkeys...

These two gals had quite the fun time at the park yesterday.  I know I was agile as a kid but I never could master those monkey bars! This little gal at only 4yrs has them mastered already, she's quite the monkey.

Mom's Birthday

Yesterday I turned 41, officially over 40 now.  My youngest asked me when we were having cake and presents? LOL I replied that Moms and Dads don't really have parties with cake and presents as we are older and don't need them. She seemed satisfied with that and went about playing.  However, what I didn't tell her is that parents have different parties on their birthdays. We celebrated over the weekend with friends and neighbours and lastnight was our family party. All four of us went out for a lovely supper with friends and yes I did get a piece of cake! 40 was a wonderful age and year and here's hoping 41 is even better!! I've a fabulous hubby that loves me "no matter what" faults, blessings and all and two beautiful daughters that think the same!! So I'm embracing 41!!!

Dress Up

Ahh Playing Dress Up!!! What better way to spend an ugly weather day!! I remember as a kid always playing with my Mom's clothes and shoes it was so fun to dress up and go on an adventure of sorts.  My girls are no different!! I believe the dress up clothes are the only "toys" that have been carted around with each of our moves. Not quite sure what this look is suppose to be with Ely though.

Lazy Sunday in the South...

Talk about LAZY LAZY!!! The weather outside was certainly NOT spring time weather today. Needless to say we all stayed pretty close to our couches, even the dogs.  Dad seems to be a human couch though as well as a climbing wall, punching bag and chair!!

Meet Ryker

This fella is the cutest I've seen in quite some time. He's got the bluest eyes and at only 4mos he's so alert and bright. Sure wish they lived here in town so I could watch him for his parents.

Happy Siblings Day

One of the first photos of my girls together. I always wanted to have 2 daughters that had the possibilitty to be as close as my sister and I are. My wish was granted!!! They are each others best friend and at times worst enemies!! I wouldn't have it any other way.
