Rescuing Lulu was a wonderful thing when it happened. In a city like ours there are a lot of stray dogs, and most of the time I look at them and leave them alone. Depending on the area I know that they are getting their needs met, or that they... Continue reading

It is nice! And yes I have the same thing happen when Victoria tries to watch one of her crazy cartoons during family movie night! All of us agreeing on one movie can be a thirty minute discussion at times...
I know! I have to take pictures of those dolls! Things have been too crazy with photography... soon though! :)
They were! They absolutely love King's Day... and it's somehow more special because we are the only ones we know that celebrate it... it's our fun "secret" holiday ;)

This week's find was really a wonderful thing. I love looking on the back shelves of Thrift Stores, you never know what kind of treasures you will find. This time I found a whole bunch of watercolor paints! These have been so helpful for my new Art Journal! I'm in... Continue reading

I told myself that I wanted to keep an Art Journal this year. It's been on the back of my mind for a while now and I started a few days into the new year, but the plan is to draw once a day throughout the year. It's funny how... Continue reading

Why is it so hard to look a mom friend in the eyes and say "Yes, I'll take you up on that offer."? It is so often that we offer one another the support that we need... and yet, are in turn unable to receive that support, to accept the... Continue reading

I love Family Movie Night... Ever since we've decided upon a(n almost) no TV policy into the household this is our special time. We have our Family Movie night every Friday or Saturday night depending on how crazy our schedule goes. We gather around the TV and watch something that... Continue reading

I have to admit that I have nothing to share for my Thrifty Tuesday... I instead spent the last week cleaning out everything that we did not need in the house... that meant convincing Victoria that those toys that she did not use the last three months, but all of... Continue reading

In our family there is something that is held in just as high esteem than chocolate or cuddles... and that is our library cards. Yes, cards, plural. We are lucky enough to live in a city where there is a plethora of libraries and library systems, and we use them... Continue reading

I wanted to do something fun for Victoria today to celebrate the coming of the New Year, and party hats seemed like just the thing for us to make. I looked a bit around the net, and when I found this absolutely gorgeous party hat tutorial by Jones Design Company... Continue reading

There wasn't going to be a post today because we had a huge family day yesterday, that took over spending time on the internet (gasp!)... but I was just thinking about the holidays and realized that I needed to share these ideas with you guys, even if it's late in... Continue reading
