Wordless Wednesday – Canada vs Sweden Gold Medal Game

Like many Canadians, we were watching the gold medal game on Sunday morning. Ashlyn decided to get artistic and draw us a picture of it! In case you're not sure, team Canada is red with green skates, team Sweden is yellow with red skates, and the red blob on the left is the goal with a blue-helmeted Canadian goalie with yellow skates sort of lying in front of it. I thought she did a great job! Read more [...]

Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic! captivates in Ottawa

We have been counting down the days until to Disney On Ice celebrates 100 Years of Magic! since I told the girls about it in December.

When I'm looking at a craft kit, the first thing Read more [...]

Disney’s The Jungle Book Diamond Edition now available

With the endless winter that Ottawa has been experiencing, escaping through a movie is our favourite way to spend an afternoon, especially if that movie features a tropical location. Enter Disney's The Jungle Book Diamond Edition, which came out of the vault on February 11! Both of my daughters have seen the commercials for The Jungle Book so they were quite excited to hear that we would be receiving it. I wish I had a video of Rowan opening the package and exclaiming "Mommy, it's The Jungle Read more [...]
