The Big Reveal...

I did a gender reveal with the girls tonight, via silly string. Neither of them has ever used silly string before so it was super exciting for them. For four months we all affectionately called this baby Aubrey because I was insistent I KNEW it was a girl. I just have REALLY good instinct like that...

or bad.

A Work in Progress, Part 2

Yesterday was a beautiful day. We spent much of it outside, after spending the afternoon selling Girl Guide cookies at Walmart (our unit's best cookie day ever!) While at the park and exploring the trails, Zoe ran into some other children. There are SO many children here, some girls are even the exact ages of ours. We were invited to the neighbourhood earth day clean up, and the neighbourhood Easter egg hunt, and then a bon fire by the pond last night, where the children enjoyed smores. I think at this rate we'll really, really like it here. :)

My Girly

This is the one that spends most of her waking hours driving me nuts. She is very strong willed, and NOT a pleaser. She loves to be busy. All the time. We went out for a walk last night. She pouted because her sister didn't want to join us- she stayed home to work on her music. Then she was REALLY not happy when it started to rain, five minutes into our journey. In her typical take-charge fashion, she tried to argue that I could just go put my camera back so it wouldn't get wet, and WE could stay out. When I told her I also didn't want to get wet, well, that was fine too. She would just stay out on her own. Sigh. That's my challenging one. We went home, but you better believe this girl won't go down without a fight.

I realized (looking at the sidebar of my blog) that I only blogged 55 times last year. It's only April so I still have plenty of time to do better this year. Plus we will be expanding our little family this September so what better time to get back in the habit. We went out for a walk again tonight. The girls seem to be loving the new neighbourhood. We discovered a pond, and I could barely drag them away. Good times.

Spring (Finally!)

The girls and I went out for a walk this evening. It has been a loooong winter. It was very refreshing to get outside and get to take photos. I think Reese totally looks like Dave in the bottom picture.

Reese is 10!

Today is Reese's 10th birthday. I set up a backdrop and took a few quick photos of her after school. This is the kind of time when a more organized person would post birthday posts from the past 10 years. And then there's me.

Girl Guide Camp

Some pics of Reese from our first ever Girl Guide Camp weekend. She learned to finger knit, and got to play the wicked queen in Snow White. She rocked it. :)
