Wow, how can Everly be ONE? ? :eek: She is adorable.
I, too, would have heartburn after that meal...but a smile on my face (and probably while prone on the couch, lol).
That carousel wedding is SO COOL!
I was alarmed at first, though, Peg...as I scrolled down and saw Steve and a pole, I thought...hmmmm...did she mean to share this one...? PHEW, it was a carousel horse! LOL
My kids started school this week, so that is what these are about. Max is in Grade 2 and Theo is in Senior Kindergarten. Anna just wanted to dress the part and walk Theo to school, lol. She is ready in every way except her age requirement.
Max at our front door at 7:45 a.m.:
...and by our garden gate:
...and with his new teacher, Madame Bell:
Theo at the door with Anna at a quarter to noon the next day:
...and in front of our house:
...and "resting" on the walk to school (the walk is only 5 minutes, lol):
This is the kindergarten play structure:
By the school sign:
In front of the school:
With his teacher, Madame Bottiglia:
...and in the crown he decorated - the crowns help the teachers sort out who is who the first week (blue is senior kindergarten, the juniors are orange this year):
Loving all the pics, as usual.
Karina, do they speak French at the boys' school? I saw the 'O Canada' in the background in French, and the teachers are Madame... just curious.
Everly is just adorable - love the family pic, too.
The carousel wedding pic is awesome. What a fun idea.
Love all the pics so far!
I am an idiot and when I took pics of Miles before school this morning I managed to leave the camera on manual mode, but shoot like it was on automatic. In front of my white garage door. :eek:
So, super happy that I decided to take some with the point and shoot, too!!
For those of you that think you have messy houses, I present my living room:
Ready for preschool:
I got way better expressions on the other camera, but since they are COMPLETELY blown out, this is the best one.
Reading time - I usually wouldn't post pictures of other people (luckily the kids are at least from behind) but I felt that this really captures the way Miles "plays." Everyone else is listening to the story, he's reading another book, lol:
So, when I spoke of getting a water table, how come no one warned me of this?
That is the best part of it! just wait add a tiny bit of dish soap to it! Owen calls it SNOW WATER!
or one of those dissolving color tabs for the bathtub!
Water table had been a favorite here for a long time!
LOVE LOVE LOVE Jax's shirt!
Yes, my kids are in French Immersion. I went through it too when I was in school. It is widespread here because it is the nation's capital and we are officially bilingual - many jobs in my city require proficiency in both languages.
Cassandra, your children are all beautiful. I love the stairwell shot especially.
Mel...you make me glad I never had a water table, LOL! What is the first shot, though...Abs and the plumbing? Love the cuddle pics.
Emily, Miles is just like Max always was at library story time, he was never into the group thing. One time he ran straight out the library door in the middle of it! It used to bother me, but now he is seven and has a huge group of friends in class - I would never have predicted it back then.
I love how you "present" your living room. But you can see the mess is all kid-related. I don't even see that kind of clutter during the day anymore, I have developed a blind spot towards it; we just stow it away at night.
Karina, it's under the kitchen sink. The only cabinet that isn't locked because the only thing under it is the dishpan and a plastic collander. Both kids love to climb in and hide. She was in there asking "where are you" because she wanted me to find her. LOL Great first day of school pics, BTW. LOVE Anna's outfit. *gush*
Cassandra, that little girl is just precious.
Emily I was cracking up over your so called living room disater. I'm with Karina, kids stuff isn't considered a mess.
Peg, that blnket picture is AWESOME. And the wedding looks like it was a ton of fun.
Kelly, my goodness She is just gorgeous in purple!!!!
Oh, French is such a beautiful language. Love the back to school photos.
Mel, never had a water table, but pretty sure my kids would be inside too. Love the ones of you and Jax!
Cassandra, love the stairwell shot too.
Kelly, aw first steps. Cant beleive that one went by so fast.
sorry I havent taken any photos today, but will try to get some up the next few days.
Kelly, I agree with Mel she looks beautiful in purple!!!!!!!!!!!
Peg, absolutely LOVE the picture of the wedding party! how cool! Where was it that it was part of the night?
Karina, love the blue crown great idea to sort heads too lol! Hope they had a great first day! Love the resting on the bench lol
Emily, ahh well... your living room is full of...TODDLER TOYS! I am sure we can all share the same thing.. and then some (ok some of us)
Mel, LOL! love the water table pictures! lol! I really need to get ours out again, I would put the craziest things in it! Landon LOVES IT though!
Cassandra, beautiful pictures! Are they still loving on their baby sister?
Cassandra, beautiful pictures! Are they still loving on their baby sister?
they love this little girl to death
They are always checking up on her and making sure she is alright and they try to do everything they can to calm her down when she is crying.
This is what Chris Jr Says " its alright baby, I'm right here" Or " mommy going to get you Pretty girl, Dont cry "
Chris Really loves his sister, When she puts on dresses he says " mommy Candace is so pretty"
I love all these pics!!! Everybody is growing up! Look at everly, so grown up!! Love the cupcake jammies.
Love the kids playing pics peg and Emily! Oh, and my mil totally picks up toys all day long. Ridiculous.
Cassandra, your little gal is precious!
Karina, I love that you can tell fall is in the air where you live! Lol at the rest on the five minute walk!:).
Mel, so sweet with Jax! Lol on water table'!!
I love the dancing Cinderella!! Delaney would love to hang out with Lyssa and talk about princesses (and twirl in their dresses!!)
