Starting off our trip to Saskatoon right with a swim! It was also a chance to test out our underwater camera for the first time! So fun!

March 30, 2013

On our way to the General Young Women's broadcast and dinner. It's hard to believe how quickly TJ is growing and what a beautiful young woman she is becoming. I'm a lucky mother.

It's a wind storm! Well, sort of. The girls got to experience a hurricane in a bottle at the Science Center!

March 28, 2013

The girls enjoyed some cuddle and play time with a friend's gorgeous husky. Wow, was she ever beautiful and soft. *Almost* makes me want one ;)

March 27, 2013

The school put on a dance during school hours, so all of the girls were able to go. No dancing with boys allowed in  our house, but they had a riot, just the same!

March 26, 2013

Another frosty day - where, oh where is Spring?

March 25, 2013

Stealing a little play time before supper!

One of the BEST Relief Society March parties I have been to. The theme was "Journey to a Stake of Promise" and we were passengers on ships. I designed the invites to look like old ship tickets, and also participated in a skit with some fun ladies. Loved it all.

BB and I were lucky enough to join the Cuellars for "K's" 8th birthday party. We saw the fun movie "The Croods" and loved it - very touching! It was even more fun with a bunch of cute little girls laughing and giggling together like only little girls can :)

March 22, 2013

Had the privilege to have these two young men over for a visit. They are in Canada, from China, going to school in an engineering program, and once we met (at church) and let them know that our Brother lives in China, we struck up a conversation. It was a great visit, and I hope we get to visit again, soon!

JJ spending some downtime playing on dad'd iPad, playing that squares game. She always beats me - she's a 6 year old little pro!

March 20, 2013

Working on a huge project for work ( to make some Pinterest images. It's a big job, but it's fulfilling and I'm excited to be nearing the end!

March 19, 2013

It's a common sight to find B in her room (or living room or anywhere else) with a book in her hands. I love that she loves to read, and I hope she cultivates that love by reading again, and again!

March 18, 2013

The only thing better than Family Home Evening, is sharing Family Home Evening with another great family! TJ planned an awesome Jeopardy-style game about Choice & Accountability for one of her YW goals, and tonight was the trial-run. It was a great success!

March 17, 2013

 First ones to the church, and Lyndon opens the gates on a blizzardy Sunday. Brrr! When is Spring going to arrive?

March 16, 2013

Time for a fun mother-daughter makeover! We loved our Mary Kay makeover and felt like new women afterward. It was a great way for TJ to get her first taste of make-up before being able to wear it when she's 13!

March 15, 2013

Time to celebrate St Patrick's Day at school, and out girls never go half-way :) Happy early St. Patrick's Day!

March 14, 2013

Busted! Caught playing together when they are supposed to be cleaning. I guess I can't get angry when they were playing so nicely :) But, back to work, girls!

March 13, 2013

Just a typical morning with TJ making eggs for her sisters. She makes them better than I do!

March 12, 2013

Out with some fabulous ladies (Carla Y. and Amanda S.) to enjoy the Globe Theater's production of "Pride & Prejudice". It was FABULOUS!

March 11, 2013

Mixing it up for dinner tonight - an indoor picnic! We are going to celebrate Springtime whether Mother Nature cooperates or not!

March 10, 2013

The second half of the girls treat for great report cards was going to see "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" at the Imax theater! It was late and a little boring for the little girls, but a fantastic flick. We didn't see it on Sunday, but late Saturday night may as well count for March 10th, right?

March 9, 2013

A special treat for the girls getting great report cards! A night out at Tutti Frutti to enjoy some delish frozen yogurt. Well done, little ladies!

March 8, 2013

A little bit of imaginative play in the grass - inside our kitchen! The outside world is covered in over 6 feet of snow, but the little patch of grass in a tupperware container that we are growing for our rabbits will do in a pinch~!

March 7, 2013

I love seeing tender moments between the girls. Sisters are special!

March 6, 2013

The world might not envy our freezing temperatures, but they just might envy the gorgeousness of winter (even if it is in March!)

March 5, 2013

It was B's night to pick dinner, and she immediately went with salmon. She has always gone against the grain in most ways, and her taste in food is no different! She also had a little raw hunk of the fish before we dressed and baked the rest. Nice.

March 4, 2013

Waiting to see if their "Winter Survival" field trip would be cancelled because of the Winter weather. Irony, right?! Ha ha ha!

March 3, 2013

The weather might be freezing, but it sure makes for pretty pictures! (The bandstand in Wascana Park)

March 2, 2013

What a spread! An amazing breakfast feast at our friends', The Speers, complete with the best french toast I have ever tasted. So good!

March 1, 2013

Checking on the results of our clever, new self-cleaning stove! Amazing!!! No more fumes and scrubbing. Gotta love that!
