House of Hygge

Before we went on our 3 week camping trip we picked up 4 of these cozy onsies from House of Hygge. This Norwegian company developed a line of full length onsies for the young and old. These fun suits have adjustable cuffs at the ankles, pockets, zip hoods to hide your face, a thumb hole on the cuff and even a … Continue reading

Locks of Love

Today was a big day in our house. My 2 older daughters donated 10 inches of their hair to Locks of Love . We started talking about donating their ponytails back in February and let me tell you, they wanted nothing to do with the idea. As time passed and we kept talking about it they eventually warmed up to the … Continue reading

Summer Vacation (part 2) Good-bye Summer!

And the road trip continued. We drove from Osoyoos to Penticton and parked at the Wright’s Beach Campground . It’s a nice campground on Skaha Lake with large trees and a great beach for the kids. They play movies 2 nights a week in the grassy field, weather permitting and have organized games. If you “like” them on Facebook they post … Continue reading

Cherry Pickin’ Ain’t What It’s Cracked Up To Be!

I had this romantic family image in my mind that being in wine/fruit country we should embark as a family to an orchard to pick fresh fruit. Picture it, 4 cute little girls in flowy cotton dresses and sun hats wandering between the rows of fruit trees with their silver pails. Giggling and nibbling on ripe cherries and peaches as … Continue reading

The house was on the market for the better part of a year so this was a long time coming. The only down side was that the … Continue reading

Stella: Do you love us all the same? Daddy: Huh? What do you mean? Stella: Well, you have 4 kids so do you love us all the same or do you love 1 of us a little less? Daddy: Oh, of course, I love you all the same amount and that amount is very big! Stella: Are you sure? Cause … Continue reading

Gratitude Journals

I have to say that the last 4 years have been on the challenging side for my little family culminating with me being diagnosed with cancer in September of 2011. When December 31, 2011 came around I felt a wash of hope come over me. I felt as though a darkness was lifting and the light was breaking thru. I … Continue reading

Brush Your Teeth

Last night this happened… Stella is brushing her teeth in the bathroom while Brigette is in her room writing in her Gratitude Journal. Stella couldn’t have been alone in the bathroom for more than 60 seconds. I have already put toothpaste on their brushes for them. When Stella is finished brushing she goes to her room and then Brigette goes … Continue reading
