Today is the day Scarlett got glasses. Not for her vision, but to strengthen her eye that turns in. She's not very impressed by having to wear these, but we think she looks darn cute!

with my girlfriends Christy, Michelle, Jocelyn & Channy
(thanks Channy for taking this photo). We are all true fans
of the show and it was so special to have this experience with them!
We headed to Minot, ND (the closest place showing this flick)
and had a day of girl talk, shopping, Starbucks & fun. We even
had our own little adventure getting back to Canada...missed the
border closing by 5 minutes and then having to drive to a 24-hour
port to get back thru, almost running out of gas and taking
backroad shortcuts to save time.
We all enjoyed the movie! I loved seeing the girls back together
again, the fashion, getting my Aiden fix & how real life the plot
was. There were so many things I could relate to in this movie.
Already thinking of seeing it again when it comes closer...
with the girls of course!

A Sunday of organizing...our kids' craft room on the main floor is often a disaster. I love the creativity that goes on in that room, but they are very unmotivated when it comes to cleaning up.
And after...ahhh, that's better. Crossing my fingers that this will inspire them to keep it clean for a few days. I'm tempted to put up some velvet ropes and have the room off limits for a few days so it can remain this way for a little while :)
Coloring shelf has idea books, baskets of coloring books (sorted into boy & girl themes) and crayons/pencils, twistables & markers.
Plan to label these drawers...they contain glue, scissors, construction paper, stamps & ink and finished masterpieces (still looking for the best way to display these).
I loved organizing this basket of colors...it was my treat at the end. Sharpened up all the pencil crayons for the kids, tested all the markers & sorted out broken crayons. I had some eager helpers for this part of the process.

This started out as my photos of the day...on our trip to Regina to pick up our cedar fence boards, we stopped at Superstore and Scarlett was amazed by all the watermelons. Her & I had fun shopping together while Daddy & Ace went to the electronics store.
Then on our way home, our day took a turn. Our truck broke down 45 minutes from home...big clouds of white smoke...not good. Luckily our brother-in-law came to our rescue, getting us all the way home with our cargo.

Today was dance photo day! It was a bit stressful getting her hair and makeup just right, but it was good to practice before the actual recital next week. Us first time dance Moms got two-thumbs-up from her instructor. All the work was worth it to see these happy little girls!

Our imperfectly, perfect family photo...LOVE IT!
I knew if I didn't get this photo when I did,
it wasn't going to happen. So glad I took the
opportunity to gather everyone up before supper
at Mom & Dad's tonight (while my sister Amber
and boyfriend Chris are visiting) to take this
photograph. No color coordinated outfits or stress
about hair. The most important part was that we
were all here, all 12.5 of us.
We attempted to put the dogs in for a photo.
Didn't turn out as we had planned, but at least
we gave it a shot.

It was about time we found a local
dentist after two years of living here.
I took the kids to Dr. Bennings office
in Carlyle for their cleanings.
The kids were treated so well there,
they both thought it was so cool to
watch the televisions on the ceilings and
get their very own gloves & masks.
stopping at the local bakery is a
must. Fresh cinnamon buns came
home with us that afternoon...yum.
