Since we’re big Star Wars fans in our house (as evidenced by Rowan’s Star Wars birthday party and our Star Wars cookies), it’s no surprise that we bought tickets for the Star Wars Identities exhibit at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum as soon as they became available. We all had a lot of fun and the girls . . . → Read More: Wordless Wednesday – Star Wars Identities
Clearly not Ottawa, since we’ve basically skipped right into summer! After months and months of being mostly housebound due to the never-ending winter (please don’t send me hate mail if you still have snow where you are right now!), my girls can’t get enough of being outside these days. It makes for a quiet . . . → Read More: Who needs spring?

This means that I’m still looking for cloth diapers that are cute, won’t break the bank (especially since I’m hoping to only be using them for a few more months) and fit . . . → Read More: ComfyRumps cloth diapers (giveaway)

We got to cross on the canal – no skating for us this time – and see some of the sculptors working on . . . → Read More: Wordless Wednesday – Winterlude 2013
A friend of mine quoted Gretchen Rubin’s “the days are long but the years are short” on her A Gym Tale blog the other week and it’s been echoing in my head ever since. Being a stay-at-home-mom for the last 3.5 years, I frequently wonder where my day – or week! – has gone; the days are . . . → Read More: The years are short
First came decorating the tree together (for the record, my husband was working, not ignoring us):

The girls are too young to carve their own pumpkins so we paint them instead! It was Rowan’s first time using paint ever and she thought it was the greatest thing, and the girls even worked together to paint the pumpkins. Lots of fun, lots of mess, and a nice long bubble bath to . . . → Read More: Wordless Wednesday – Pumpkin Painting
