Updating Pictures Before the Baby Bonanza

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

This is just a little note to direct you to the Gallery, as I have posted new pictures in September and October galleries of what’s been going on around here with the two “old” children. Soon (hopefully oh-so-soon) there will be the exciting New Baby, so the “old” kids won’t be as shiny anymore and […]

It’s a Tight Race…

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

After an early lead for team “boy” (more than 2:1), the “girl” team has now caught up and we’re neck-and-neck with 44 picks apiece. Have you put in your guess on the Sprout Baby Pool? Click the link for “Baby Pool” on the right-hand side of the page to test your prognostication proficiency.

Travelling with children… it’s amazing anyone can do it and stay sane. That being said, over all it has been great so far.  Amazingly through our touring B.C. we have squeezed in many visits, mostly expected, some not, and the great weather has followed us everywhere.  Canmore was a longer stay than expected, due to […]

Strawberry summer at last

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

The garden has been keeping the kids fed in strawberries. Desmond has been learning the art of fruit picking from Sophie though he hasn’t always shown patience when it comes to waiting for the ripening of fruit. Speaking of ripening, beautiful Miranda is showing off her growing bump of baby… Mother and Sprout are doing […]

Ahh, quelle belle ville.  Our stay in Montreal has been really great.  It started out by arriving at the Auberge Les Bons Matins, where we were to spend the first two nights of our stay.  These are also the only two nights where we are not staying with friends or family, and so we treated […]

Sophie turns 2

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Lil Miss Sophie celebrated her second birthday this past week with style.  On Thursday we dined with loved ones to mark her turning 2.  It was the start of her sugar bender which concluded on Sunday night after her BBQ party for friends.  We are hoping that her recovery from her sweet long weekend will […]

The Travelling Annetts

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Another long hiatus, and many more details in our ever exciting lives… We returned safely from Orlando, tired but intact. It was my first -certainly not last- trip where I truly realized that travelling with children is all of a sudden not very relaxing. Well, there are relaxing moments, but it is definitely not restful. […]

a fond farewell to Yeti

Monday, August 17th, 2009

Today Miranda and I were very sad to say goodbye to Yeti, who at almost 16 years of age, passed away.  She had been very sick for the past week, and was weakened, as her liver failed she had stopped eating for almost a week.  With no other dignified option for Yeti, we were by […]
