A moose, a bear and a racoon walked into a bar…

25 Feb

It’s been a while on the blogging front, so I thought I would share a bit of what we did this January/February in pictures:

We coloured.  On the windows, on the bathtub, on ourselves.  Once, Josselyn coloured all over the carpet with bath crayons.  The only place we didn’t colour was on paper.  Too old-school.

Holly is seen here posing on her *almost* finished quilt.  That is the back.

This one characterized so many things:

We played with Daddy.  We played with balloons.  We made Froot Loop necklaces, then ate them before Mommy could get a picture!  We wore leg warmers… really, the list could go on.

We played with tools in a princess skirt.  She had a screwdriver too- but I thought this picture really showcased the juxtaposition of her outfit with her activity.

We played outside.  This is the kids with their cousin Ethan at my parents place in Sudbury. There was a lot of playing, and a lot of silliness.

More playing…

More silliness.

We pretended to be groundhogs and not see our shadow. The girls (especially Bronwyn) have loved Groundhog Day every since last Groundhog Day.  They love to pop out of holes and pretend to see their shadow.  So what could be better than two ready-made groundhog holes right in the back yard?!?!?

We cried.  But not as much as usual.  Another post on that one soon.

We used our imaginations.  Holly and Josselyn are pretending to be driving.  Holly is the Mommy, and is, therefore, in the front seat.  Josselyn is “buckled” into her seatbelt in the back seat.  And the baby is buckled in behind her.  Apparently there is an “imaginary car hierarchy” that I was unaware of…

We loved our new cousin.  Aubrey is the cutest thing, and I am not just saying that because she looks just like me!  More like me than my own kids, I think!!  Genetics is a funny thing.

More love.

And more love.

Yep.  More love.  Josselyn thought that Aubrey was her very own babee to play with whenever she wanted.  She would sit with her on her lap on the couch and gently rock her.  If Aubrey started to fuss (which she always did) Josselyn would hush her and shove Purple over her face to calm her down.  This, of course, had the opposite effect, and what started as a little squirming and fussing soon turned to all-out kicking and wailing.  The solution?  More blanket!  What else would she want?!  By this point, Aubrey was rescued, and the look of bewilderment on Joss’s face was priceless.

More baby-loving!

We are almost finished February, and I hope to have pics to post soon of the girls at their swimming lessons.  I never did get one shot of Bronwyn skating.

Remember that March is my Blog Every Day Month.  I’m looking forward to it!

    Love the pictures…especially the colouring one. 🙂
    And…good luck for the month of blogging. I have really enjoyed doing it the past 2 Novembers and felt very rewarded when I finished…but also really tired from it too. 🙂
