A sad and lonely garden center - under inches of snow! Hopefully this is the last snow fall, and Spring can finally arrive!

A little underwater fun for Family Home Evening!

April 28, 2013

Taking a Sunday walk - one of our favorite traditions, only this time we are using some wheels, too! Too bad there was some flooding that made our walk....interesting :)

It is FINALLY warm enough to get outside and try out those rollerblades! She did so great. YAY, B!!

Not quite what Lyndon was expecting at the youth activity out at CTK - a grass fire that was spreading! Some quick thinking and hard work and it was successfully put out! A bit of unexpected adventure!

April 24, 2013

A little imaginative play in the tub! Boy, this brings back some happy memories :)

April 23, 2013

Made my favorite soft pretzels today - these are ridiculously good, and such a treat for our family. LOVE THESE!

It took a while, but I managed to gather all of my scrapbooks and organize them on ONE bookshelf! Phew! Now I don't have to search the house to find an album. So glad this is done!

Fun decorations at the Tri-stake Youth Conference!

April 20, 2013

Lyndon spent the weekend in Saskatoon at the tri-stake youth Conference with all of these fine youth! He loved watching them having good, clean fun together, and was encouraged by the calibre of youth in our area!

April 19, 2013

Working on a backdrop for TJ's upcoming birthday party - I love how these paper lollys have turned out! I can't wait to see all of the decorations up all together!

April 18, 2013

TJ was thrilled to attend a pre-JUNO kick off where her school music program received a grant for musical instruments, etc. and she got to meet The Canadian Tenors and see them perform. A very special day!

Time for some italian meatballs! I love to make these, and freeze them so I can add them to pasta sauce, or to some italian wedding soup. YUMMO!

April 16, 2013

Admiring my new canvas wrap of my "Great Wall of China" picture from our trip! I love how it turned out!

April 15, 2013

During a visit out to Jean in Regina Beach, we saw a herd of deer right in the yard next to hers. They must have been scrounging up what little grass they could from beneath all of the snow!

April 14, 2013

My little panda bear, listening to some music on her little ipod nano!

April 13, 2013

Ack! I tried to avoid it, but it has finally happened - I am the mother of a teenager!! I couldn't ask for a better daughter, and I know her teen years will be great ones. Happy 13th birthday, TJ!

April 12, 2013

It was a year in the making, but I finally finished my scrapbook album from our China trip! So glad to have the memories documented!

April 11, 2013

A little "happy mail" surprise from my brother! I love, love, love these gorgeous earrings, and receiving a surprise like this, out of the blue - priceless :)

April 10, 2013

Wearing pink to show support for "Anti-Bullying" day! (Of course, most days we are wearing pink in our house, so I guess that makes us staunch anti-bullying supporters!)

April 9, 2013

Tj finds a lot of joy in preparing meals for the family. I enjoy seeing my girls developing their talents and preparing for the time when they will have a family of their own!

April 8, 2013

Sharing a few moments together on dad's iPad in front of the fireplace. The ultimate in comfort!

April 7, 2013

It is a wonderful time in which to live when we can enjoy all sessions of Conference right from the comfort of our own homes! It was a conference to remember, with Pres. Monson's matches story. So fantastic!

April 6, 2013

A fresh snow fall is the perfect excuse to make the first snowman of the season - in April, in between General Conference sessions. Why not?

April 5, 2013

Shoveling the snow off the roof - in April. Seriously? Welcome to Saskatchewan!

JJ definitely fits in with the local wildlife in her Panda Sweatshirt. She blends right in with the sign at the mall :)

April 3, 2013

 Going to Costco as a family is always an adventure! So much to see, and do, and taste :) We especially love their ice cream - mercy, it's good. Our absolute fave!

April 2, 2013

A trip to the local library is a great way to spend a day off school for Spring break. Time for some reading!

April 1, 2013

Our first visit to the Saskatoon zoo! We thought it was great- not the Calgary zoo, but still fun. We also had the experience of eating at Fuddruckers, which was delicious and fun. What a great Easter Weekend!
