Skating and Such

Once upon a time there was a baby girl born into the wrong climate. That baby girl was me.  I don't like hockey, I hate the cold, and when the snow comes, I want to hibernate all. winter. long.  I am not proud of these facts, but that's what they are. Facts.  It'd be neat if I could shout "Go Maple Leafs! Go!" at the tv with genuine can't-take-my-eyes-off-the-tv kind of interest, and that I couldn't wait for the outdoor rinks to freeze, but there's no sense in pretending to be what you're not. My dad and Dave took the kids to Harmony Square in downtown Brantford to go ice skating. Dave was shocked when I said I was going to come along.  I figured if I could be of absolutely no help, I could at least photograph my children during their first outdoor skate of the season, and I think Zoe's first outdoor skate ever.  Unfortunately, after a few minutes of freezing my buns off and wondering why I came, the children were still not done as I'd been expecting. They were enjoying it! So I went into a little coffee shop next door and sat by the fire drinking a latte. Well, at least I tried. Mom of the year trophy goes to...
someone else.

A Christmas Holiday, Part 1

It always takes me a few posts to share, in pictures, the holiday that comes and goes so quickly. It's been a good one so far, but I'm ready to take down the tree now and get this house back in order.

Christmas Lights

Tonight we took the kids to Victoria Park to see the Christmas lights. In their typical style, my kids tried to turn this to-be-outing into drama. Zoe sulked because she wanted to stay home and play Wii Tennis. Reese did a summersault into the tv stand and stubbed her toe and it was practically the end of the world.  But we finally made it out, and despite a some complaints about the cold, the kids loved seeing the lights, and even want to go back again to go skating next time. :)

I know I keep saying I'm leaving this place...

I know I keep saying I'm leaving this, and I am! Well, on days when it won't let me upload any pictures I am. But I checked my storage space, and I'm only at 19% use so I'm not really sure what is going on. (Some people are so much drama, eh?) Really, it's not drama. I just don't know what's happening. Anyway, here is Reese before her Brownie Christmas party. She had a great time, and I think she enjoyed dressing up because she was more than happy to pose for me. She gets right into it sometimes! Anyway, for those days that Blogger doesn't like me, I'll be over at Wordpress, but today, Blogger and I are friends! I didn't even resize these babies.

My New Blog

So I know some said it would work, but it didn't. Resizing for web, I was still unable at the lowest possible resolution to post one more single photo on PlainlJayne. So I'm starting again. You can find me here!

I tried to make another Blogger blog, but I'm still banned. :( Really banned for good from posting any pictures on any blog attached to my email. As sad as I am to leave my blogger days behind, I am moving onto Wordpress, who are unfamiliar with me and my picture hogging ways. ( I was going to replace hogging with another word, but it was naughty. ;) But y'all know what I meant by hogging... )

I have no choice on the name of this blog (being listed under my business name.) I created this a few months ago, hogging up webspace from several sites listed under my business name for potential future use. I never got around to using it. But now it's my blog. For now.

Resizing to buy some blogging time...

So I did it. I resized so that I could attempt to blog some more. I'm not gonna lie though. It hurts seeing my images in such an unsharp state. Maybe there is another way around it and I just need to experiment. But for now low resolution images were all that blogger would take from me, and only two of them at that. :( And yes, that's the guinea pig in a doll Beco. Darling, eh? The other pig would not participate.
