The boys were in their first race today! Every year they cheer on their dad as he races in the Suburban Rush, and this year they got to race while dad cheered them on in the first ever Suburban Rush Kids Race! Here are some pics of their big day!!
So proud of my boys!! Especially proud of my man, for being such a good example for our boys.
The boys spent hours that day racing their bikes and running in circles around our cul de sac, pretending to be “real” racers. Can’t wait for next year!
I hope you all enjoyed your Easter holidays! The boys had a pro-d day at school on Thursday, so it was a five day long weekend at our house! We filled the weekend with family dinners, lunch with friends, church and lots of hunting for eggs… our little guy came down with a fever on day two, so there was a shocking lack of interest in chocolate on his part, until today. He’s feeling better now!
I was given these letters at one of my baby showers for the wall of our nursery. I loved that they spelled baby in French, a reminder of our stay in France. They were up in the nursery of our first home, but never made it onto the wall after we moved into house #2… and now the boys aren’t even close to being babies anymore, so I really can’t hang them now, can I! And yet, I couldn’t bring myself to give them away!
My scroll saw savvy dad helped me change the e into a c! Thank you dad!!
And then I enlisted the boys to choose a color, and paint their letter. The b got a light grey, and the c got a coat red… and then navy.
What do you think? It adds a little interest to the plain slab doors, don’t you think? The boys are so excited about their “new” doors!

My sweet 6 year old just got his gi (karate uniform) after a couple weeks of proving to us that he really wanted to stay with the karate class that he chose. We took him to try out a couple of different martial arts classes at various places to see what he liked, and he chose the class that was “more challenging”. The fact that he’s choosing the challenging option makes me very happy! He is SO excited and proud of his uniform. He slept in it last night, and he brought it to school for show and tell today. It’s amazing how much he’s learned and improved in just a couple of weeks!
As you can see in the background, Jason was cooking dinner when we got home from all the running around. Scrambled eggs – dinner of champions. : )
(Had to make it black and white, because of course the picture with the best expression on his face was the one where I forgot to turn off the flash.)
We went sledding with the boys on Burnaby Mountain recently. To say that it’s a popular spot for sledding is an understatement. For us, it was a location decided on primarily because it’s about fifteen minutes from home, which worked in our favor when the littlest member of our family decided that he just did not want to sled. Too many people, way too steep. Looking back, I suppose we should have started him off with something a little less steep… but just look at that view.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Well here we go! If you’re reading this then it means the creative exchange has begun! I’m writing my first post in between washing dishes, wiping faces, and printing out proofs of the latest Christmas card design that I’m working on for a client. And that pretty much describes the balancing (or lack of) that goes on over here at our house… welcome!
