The weather finally warmed up a bit today, it was only about -5 C, so I bundled up the kids and sent them out to play. I came out with my camera and took a few photos, since I have been neglectful in that area lately. I think I have been secretly waiting for my new camera and shunning my old one!
R, my ten year old is out with his uncle today. Uncle Ryan picked R up for hockey and they have spent the whole afternoon together, walking the dogs, going for lunch. I am sure R feels pretty special, it is not often any of them get to spend the day with their Uncle, and he is a pretty awesome guy. Uncle Ryan and Auntie Chantelle don't have any kids, but they have two terrific dogs, so all my kids think that their house is the best to visit. They get to share the spotlight with their two favourite furries, Mommy is too mean to get a dog at our house.
I threw together this layout this afternoon using a template freebie from Amy's Blog, click on image for credits. I think I might stick this one in my Heritage Makers storybook I am making to chronicle 2007 . See this post for April and October.
I had to share this photo of A. This is what she looks like when she starts to talk, I don't know if it comes across to you as well as it does to me. But she does this thing where she tilts her head and closes her eyes for a second as she starts to talk to you as if she can barely stand to spend the few moments to speak with such peasants as you. It always starts with a big sigh and then she slowly and deliberately tells you what she has to say, just in case you are too dumb to understand. It makes me laugh every time. Thankfully it makes everyone laugh!
