family day

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and for those lucky ducks that had an extra long weekend, I hope you took full advantage of it. I had this whole weekend planned out, visiting with friends and family, hitting up Winterlude and getting a million things done around the house. Well, let's just say that none of the above happened for us. Both kids caught a bug at the beginning of last week and it was still going strong ALL weekend long! Our days consisted on holding crying children, wiping snotty noses and running cool baths... not how we pictured to spend our Family Day holiday, but we did spend it as a family. The kids are on the mend and I am hoping to rid this house of those rotten germs. It breaks my heart when our tiny angels are not well...
This picture sums up the last week around here.
Our little girl couldn't break her fever for days.
She spent most of her days cuddled in bed with all her stuffed animals.
There were a few moments when their energy came back...
Little Miss L. was so disappointed that she missed her Valentine's party at preschool. She still made sure to make her Valentine's when she had a burst of energy. Happy to report she delivered her cards to all her friends yesterday.
She made sure to colour on each and every one of them.
There was a lot of this that went on. As much as I do not like seeing my babies sick and hope this is the last for the winter season. I did however, enjoy our snuggles.

giddy. yep, i am down right giddy!

I have been sitting here thinking of the word that would describe how I feel and really the only word that I can think of right now is giddy. Giddy, might you ask? Well, as some of you may know, I love photography. Photography had become a hobby for me and then with the outpouring of support from friends, family and a lot of you, it has now become a little more than a hobby. In January, for the very first time, my work was published on the cover of a magazine! Not only did the magazine publish my work but it also featured my daughter. I have had a smile plastered across my face since it was published. I love walking by my coffee table and seeing my daughter smiling up at me. Seeing the magazine for the first time was a proud momma moment that I will never forget. Thank you to Backpack Magazine for allowing me this awesome opportunity. Please go pick up a copy and support this great read. Pin It

happy valentine's day

It's love day today! I hope you are taking a few moments to spread the love. All it takes is a smile or a hug! I am one lucky momma to be surrounded by so much love each and every day. I was looking forward to our Valentine festivities but I guess they will have to be put on hold, as I have one sick little girl who has been fighting off something nasty this week.

Remember to take this day to remind the people who bring joy and love into your life how much they mean to you. Happy Valentine's Day to each and every one of you!! Pin It

life as we know it

Baby D's hair explains how crazy things have been over here.
No, I have not been abducted by aliens and I promise I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. Life around here has been beyond crazy these days. I have so much to catch you guys up on and I promise I will do it next week. Life with a 3 year old and 18 month old is a busy one with no slowing down in sight. Once this mommy has time to refresh her tired self this weekend, this blog will be my first stop.

Happy Friday everyone! Pin It
