...hello...

Just maybe I will get back into the swing of 
this blogging thing.
I wouldn't hold your breath though...
there are simply not enough hours in a day!
This summer has been crazy busy...
but in a fun way...
lots of little day and weekend trips and
so much fun exploring new places
and soaking in as much summer as possible!
All too soon winter will be back...
and school...
so we are taking advantage of all summer!
I find that Instagram has kinda taken the 
place of blogging for me...
I still record our daily life,
just much shorter stories.
~
I have oodles of pictures from our summer adventures
I am hoping to be blogging in the next few weeks...
hopefully!

Side note: this picture of James is old...
taken from early spring.
His hair is now cut short.
I miss his long hair...
short hair makes him look too old!

Colouring Eggs...

Okay,  this post should have gone 
before the 
Easter one...
but oh well!
 
Daddy was gone for the 2 weeks before Easter...
which meant if the kids
were going to dye Easter eggs,
It was up to me...
yikes!
The night before we did the colouring,
I sat down and blew out 2 dozen eggs.
That's 24 eggs.
My mouth was sore for a few days.
I was light headed all evening.
Next year it better be Jon's turn to 
blow out the eggs! 


Don't worry,
Angelina did not get left out...
though we did give her pink so her fingers 
wouldn't be quite as stained!
She mostly just used a marker and decorated her egg.



James was the very creative
{and very messy}
one this year!



Elsie has become so
"clean" when doing projects...
and so systematic.
I love watching her grow up and 
finding her groove.
We had some pretty fun and very colourful eggs 
to put on the 
Easter Egg tree...
and a few even made it into the 
special box of eggs we save 
every year.

Easter Memories...

This post with all the Easter pictures
has been sitting in the draft file since 
a few days after Easter!
I always have great intentions of blogging 
right away...
but Life happens and I just cant squeeze it all in.
Better late than never I guess!
Since this is so late...
very few words!
My mind is always racing with a million other things
and I can barley even remember Easter!
~
At the kids request the Easter baskets were 
hidden in random places in the house...
Elsie's was in the stove,
James in the tub 
and Angelina's on the book shelf.
 
The Easter Bunny spoiled them good this year!
The Easter Bunny likes to do little 
themes with the gifts...
this year is was all about Beach Fun!
Beach towels,
pool floaties,
Big water toys/floaties,
Camp silverware,
and more than I can remember! 








After church,
we went to my parents house for 
dinner, and an egg hunt and lots of visiting...

Angelina loved the Egg hunt!






We had a fabulous Easter...
perfect weather,
lots of family,
Good memories...
a perfect day...

Cutest Things...

A few weeks ago
we did a little photo-shoot
in honour of 
National Sibling Day... 
 








Basically,
these kids are about the
cutest siblings ever...

Phone Calls...

James just totally cracks me up...
He just does whatever makes him happy,
completely oblivious to the fact that everyone 
is watching him.
He is like a little man...
And he has a deep need to spend time with the guys!
 
One afternoon James had to call 
Papa Wayne just to talk...
and because he is such a guy,
he had to walk around outside while talking...
He was so busy talking and dragging an
old swing around,
that he didn't even realize he was winding himself
up in the swing as he was talking...


There is truly something so 
sweet and special about little boys...
they have a way of completely melting their 
mothers!
