January 15, 2012

We often watch a movie and make popcorn Sunday evenings. I guess it's been a while though because Maggie was fascinated by the popping popcorn.

Maggie loves playing on my phone. I have to hide it from her most of the time.

The girls playing (and making a mess!) at the Children's Resource Library. I volunteer here 6-9hrs a week, and the girls and I love getting out of the house and meeting some of the families here

While I was packing the cooler to come home, Maggie walked over and just stepped right in and made herself comfy. Such a goof!

Licking the bowl clean after helping Grandma make Cherry loaf. YUM!

My parents took us to a Hurricanes Hockey game tonight. It was a great game and everyone had fun, especially Maggie. She thought the Zamboni was a train, and said "CHOO CHOO" the entire time it was cleaning the ice.

These guys were so excited to spend the day together again

We played Carcasonne tonight, and let Kaden stay up to play it with us. He was NOT having good luck with his pieces.

Sean and I spent most of the day in our Jammies playing games. The perfect way to spend New Years.

---Anise has a radar in her for anything furry and cute. If there are any dogs anywhere near the soccer field during Kaden's games, she spends the entire time making friends with them.---

---Well, today is my due date - and still no baby. I'm swollen, tired and grumpy. It doesn't help that Sean has been on call in Raymond all day yesterday and today, so I had to handle Kaden's 2 soccer games yesterday and church by myself this morning. And the kids in my primary class where less than co-operative today - so much so that I finally gave up on teaching the lesson and headed to the primary room early for sharing time. Basically, I'm done. Really really done. Now if only the baby was too---

---There isn't much better than a Slurpee on a hot day! Especially when you spend a good part of it watching soccer games in an open field with no shade. It sure hit the spot!---

---Finally, some nice weather! And how did we celebrate? The kids had some fun in the backyard with the water table and wadding pool, Sean rented a rototiller for the garden and got it all dug up, and I stayed in the cool house with my feet up as much as possible so I wouldn't swell up too bad! All in all, a great day---

---What do you do with 5 kids, and two medical residency widows who don't feel like making dinner? You get a blanket, and couple chairs, pizza, some crazy bread, chips, and juice boxes and have a pizza picnic in the park! Then sit back and watch the pizza sauce fly---

---Ignore the fact that my toes look like sausages - just look at the pretty paint job I did today ALL BY MYSELF! No small accomplishment considering I'm 39 1/2 weeks pregnant!!---

---A little rag quilt I made. I know, I know, how many quilts does one baby possibly need? Well, this one is for covering the baby in the car seat, so it's just a little one. I cut it all out and sewed it in one day - and besides the baby's not here yet, so I might as well keep sewing to occupy my time while I wait---

---Anise took the camera outside to take some pictures for me (totally her idea). We mostly ended up with pictures of the grass and road, but I thought this one was kinda neat---

---Kaden lost his first tooth today! He's been wiggling it for about a week now, and finally it was loose enough (and he was brave enough) to pull it out. He hasn't been this excited for a long time, and I know it's partially because Anise lost her tooth 7 months ago (how sad for your little sister to lose a tooth before you, even if it was you that knocked it out) and the fact that he was the only kid in his class that hadn't lost a tooth yet. He couldn't wait to put it under his pillow to see what the tooth fairy would bring him!---

---I spent most of my day doing taxes. I almost got it all done, but then my back was sore from sitting, and my eyes wouldn't focus on the paper any more, so I had a nap and then couldn't bring myself to get it out again.---

---This is what happens on a 5 minute van ride when you go to bed at 9:30pm and get up at 5:30am. He was zonked!---

---Anise on the phone with her bestest buddy Lucy. They laughed and giggled together for about 20 minutes. Ya, we're in trouble---

---Kaden completing my Mother's Day Spa experience at the school. I got a shoulder rub, lotion rubbed on my hands, stories read to me, punch and cookies, and my nails painted! He even used 5 different colours, so it would be extra pretty, and was very careful not to get any on my skin - he did a great job! It was a very fun way to spend an hour with him---

---Anise mixing the colour into her new play-dough Great Grandma Frache made for her today. She loved squishing it while it was still warm.---
