Gingerbread House 2016

We have gone to a gingerbread class with family and friends since Hannah was little and we were excited to go again this year although sadly we were missing a few.

Hannah, Makenna, Kallen and Nathan were the kiddos who were ab le to go this Christmas.DSC_2236

I think Kallen ate as much icing as made it onto his house.   DSC_2246

Faces always help when big decorating decisions are being made.  DSC_2249


Hannah and Makenna are the best of friends!  I love the friendship these cousins share.  DSC_2252

Hannah Got Her Ears Pierced!!

Every so often Hannah has talked about getting her ears pierced.  Last Christmas I gave her some pierced earrings and told her we could go an get her ears pierced.  It took her a while to get ready but this fall she said she wanted to do it!

She took Baby with her for moral support.  Her lip biting and firmly clasped hands showed me she was a little nervous – and I didn’t blame her.  This was a big step for my girl! 


All smiles as they cleaned her ears. 


Dots – check! 


We chose this location as she could get both ears done at once.  My brave girl!! 

She checked herself out each time we passed a mirror and I couldn’t blame her!  So pretty! 


Way to go Hannah!!

Trimming the Christmas Tree

Hannah and I love sharing time together decorating our Christmas tree.  There are no rules and I love how fun and unique it is each and every year!  Here is this year’s creation decorated while wearing her adorable new Christmas pyjamas!


Tree trimming is always better when done while enjoying ‘Christmas milk’. IMG_2996

This is how you decorate your tree too, right? IMG_3001

Adding the angel to the top is always a fun adventure with tons of giggles!DSC_2199

Forever Family Day 2016

November 2nd is the day 7 years ago that God brought Hannah and I together forever!  It’s a day that we celebrate and enjoy together and with others.  Family Day 2016 Mommy and Hannah

This year we went to dinner with Grandma and Grandpa.  While we’re sorry they’re no longer able to travel to Florida in November, we’re so thankful that we can now share Forever Family Day celebrations with them!Family Day 2016 Grandma and Grandpa

The following weekend we went to our annual get together with the families that we travelled to China with.  This is one day that we will not miss as it’s important for our girls to get together.  We don’t see most of these families other than this one day each year so it’s always a cherished day!  It’s amazing how quickly the girls pick up where they left off and we have to chase them down to take this one pic!

And, our annual trip down memory lane…

Remembrance Day 2016

Today Canadians remembered those who fought in wars for the freedoms that we now enjoy.

Hannah was chosen with a little boy from her class to take up the wreath that each class had created using their hand prints and poppies.  What a special moment to see my sweet girl taking part in such an important remembrance.IMG_2920


May we never forget.IMG_2927
