Trying out the Pool

Today was unusually warm for this early in the summer, so we took advantage of the favorable conditions and filled Liam’s wading pool up with water and toys!  If this hot weather continues, I may just have to get right in there with him!

The Beauty of Spring

The lilacs are in full bloom at the University of Guelph’s Arboretum. What a beautiful display of colour, not to mention the wonderful aroma they produce!  As we strolled down the paths, I wanted to take it all in.  Nature is so often under appreciated, and I wanted to be sure to open all of […]

Worn Right Out!

Not long ago, I mentioned that I haven’t got any recent pictures of Liam sleeping…until now! I got these shots about 15 minutes ago at the dinner table, as we were having one of our typical early weekend dinners. Liam fell fast asleep mid-bite. I guess all the fresh air he got earlier in the […]

Seven-Layer Salad Recipe

Sneak Peek!

Today we hope to find out the gender of our baby. I am so excited, I can hardly wait! Stuart thinks’s its like sneaking a peek at a Chirstmas present. I call it wanting to be prepared! Besides, with Liam we waited to find out, and I figure it is a surprise whether we know […]

Graduation Gift Idea

I received this wonderful children’s book as a graduation gift when I graduated from York University in 2000. Liam noticed it’s bright cover, and pulled it off the shelf the other day so we read it together. What a great book for all ages…

And I thought one baby was a lot of work!!! Being a Mom myself now, makes me realise all of the sacrifices and hard work my own Mother endured raising my Brother Michael and I. I am so thankful to have her as my Mother and friend. She is such a kind, thoughtful person and […]

Mist in the Morning…

This is one of my favorite times of the day; first thing in the morning before anyone else is up. It is such a pretty scene out of our back window just now, as the mist rises up from behind the budding trees. The birds are singing, and there is such a sense of quiet […]
