Easter Highlights

Easter HighlightsI think I should change the tagline of my blog to ‘better late than never’, this month has completely gotten away from me. Obviously I have dropped the ball on my goal of posting 3x a week and I’ll write a post at some point about my current slump, but today I wanted to share highlights from our little Easter weekend.

It’s the first time since Christmas that we were able to spend this much time together as a family, and it was so wonderful. We played board games, painted eggs, watched movies, and of course had an egg hunt! Easter weekend is the only time I don’t have to bug the kids to clean their rooms or pick up their toys because we have told them the Easter Bunny only leaves eggs in clean rooms ♥.

My sweet boy… today you turned 7. I feel like it was just yesterday that I held you in my arms for the first time and my life was forever changed.

You have always had such a wonderful personality. You are loving, kind, caring, thoughtful, and so smart! You amaze me every day, and I am so lucky to be your mom. I love you to the end of the universe and back, and I am so very proud of you. Happy birthday Monkey. ♥

2016 thanksgiving highlights

thanksgiving2016-0This Thanksgiving was a bunch of firsts for us – it was the first time we had thanksgiving at home, just the 4 of us… which meant it was also the first time I made Thanksgiving dinner! It snowed that weekend so we got to go out and build our first snowman of the year too. The kids had so much fun playing in the snow, I wish winter could be as wonderful and mild as that day was.

For our Thanksgiving dinner we picked up a 9lbs turkey which I dry brined the night before, and we made it nice and easy with mashed potatoes, gravy, slow cooked carrots and green beans. Everything turned out perfectly!

Here are a few of my favourite pics from our little Thanksgiving day. ♥

I’d love to hear your thoughts, please leave me a comment!
