Snowflakes

I see her looking out the window.



The glass fogs up with every exhale.



I'm watching her... as I so often do.



She is my daughter yet she's so much more. She is my window to youth, to mystery, to seeing the world in a different light.



How could such a little person teach me so much? She has taught me how to love and to understand how God must love His children. She has taught me that everything is an adventure waiting to be embarked upon, and a mystery…

Giving A Boot To "You Can Do It"





The scene is not new. I'm standing in the front entrance watching my four-year-old daughter struggle with her winter boots.



"I can't do it!"



I offer to help.



"NO!" she…

I'm Sad About This Posting

Anyone who has followed my blog for a while knows that I'm not a niche blogger. I write about everything... my latest craft project, day-to-day life with my girls, my recipes, parenting ideas, activities for kids, and the list goes on and on. Sometimes I write personal stories too.

 

If you're familiar with the blogging world, you are probably aware that you can run analytics on your site. I am sad to report that my most popular posting is…

Chocolates, romantic dinner, kisses, hugs, candlelight, cards, sugar cookies with pink frosting... yes, it's Valentine's Day.



What did I get for Valentine's Day you ask? Well, it's none of your business.



Do you remember being in…

The Plant Is Growning Up To The Wall



"The plant is growing up to the wall!" bellowed my four year old.

My Response To Facebook Parenting

I have two daughters, 4 years old and 6 months old... I can't even begin to imagine what parenting them through the teen years will be like.



Today I saw this video and after the initial shock settled, I had to respond.…

She's Watching Me

"I lost fifteen pounds already." Says the girl who's only four... and my daughter.

The Lost Project: Postcard 1

In 2004 my husband and I embarked on a project. We gathered 100 postcards, numbered them, addressed them (with the PO Box we had rented) and delivered the postcards everywhere we went. We stamped the postcards and left them with a loonie, a pen and a note encouraging the recipient to write a positive thought, a favourite quote, or whatever they wanted. The instructions also prompted the recipient to mail back the postcard as soon as possible. We were curious as to…

Nursery Art

As I previously shared in my posting, 12 Projects For 2012, I have been wanting to make canvas art out of my baby's hand and footprints. The inspiration came to me as I assembled a hand and footprint calendar for the grandmas in our family.…

Our New Favourite Snack: Lettuce Wraps

For the past month I have made an effort to take better care of myself. This wasn't a New Year's resolution (I don't like resolutions) but rather a lifestyle change. God gave me a healthy, functioning body, and I felt it was time to start taking better care of it. Some of the changes I've made include:

- exercising daily (Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred or yoga)
- drinking more water
- making healthy food choices


These changes have invigorated…
