Wordless Wednesday – a look back at 2011

So much happened in 2011!  We started the year off with a bang by going to see Disney Live! Mickey's Rockin' Road Show. February took us to Winterlude here in Ottawa, where we had a great time out in the cold and I had some lovely maternity pictures taken by Elizabeth Fulton Photography (you'll see much, much more of her work further down in this post). We welcomed Rowan (aka Sprout) in March and it was love in first sight for all of us!   We had a quiet spring while we got used Read more [...]

Happy New Year from a bad blogger

How is it already a week into 2012?  Like many of you, the chaos of the holidays is finally subsiding and I'm hoping that we can get back into our regular routine this week, and that includes more blogging by yours truly!  The girls are keeping me on my toes - Rowan learned how to pull up to a stand on New Year's Day and she's trying her hardest to walk but lacks the balance to do it, so there are lots of bumps and near-misses around here.  She's almost 10 months old and I'm starting to think Read more [...]

I've been playing around with My Memories Suite for a few weeks now and I can't believe it's taken me this long to try scrapbooking on Read more [...]

DIY Christmas Ornaments

Every year I get a new ornament for our tree.  My mom always got me and my brother an ornament and it was so special for me to have a tree full of ornaments with memories attached to them when I moved a few provinces away with my then-boyfriend (now husband).  I'm continuing the tradition for my girls, but this year I changed it up a bit and had them help me make ornaments that will help us to remember just how small they once were. This is Ashlyn's ornament: Basically, you cover the Read more [...]

Beauty and the Beast back in theatres (giveaway)

It's a tale as old as time, and now it's coming back to theatres in Disney Digital 3D!  I vividly remember seeing it the first time in was released in 1991 (wow, does that make me feel old all of a sudden!) and it's been one of my favourite movies ever since. In case you haven't seen it before, here's a little synopsis.  "The film captures the fantastic journey of Belle (voice of Paige O’Hara), a bright and beautiful young woman who’s taken prisoner by a hideous beast (voice of Robby Benson) Read more [...]
