Spring is coming...

Spring is on the way! We've had some lovely warm winter days that really make me feel like Spring will be here soon. The days are getting brighter and longer and it's an amazing feeling.

The girls are great...eating apples for snacks: (Sam can eat an apple whole AND the whole apple)

We went to our neighbourhood winter festival. It was a gorgeous warm day. There was sledding, fort building, sleigh riding and bannock making. Katie and Dad on the sleigh, pulled by horses...when the horse jolted forward Katie got scared and they had to get off. Thankfully it was slow enough to do so.
Katie's hair is getting longer and she's letting me ponytail it occasionally. This day she was playing with lego...putting the singles into the crack of the chair and calling them dragon teeth. She has QUITE the imagination.
Katie and I tried a new recipe, Nutella Oatmeal Bars (when I find the website, I'll post the recipe, I've forgotten exactly where I got it)...they are delicious but very crumbly. Another day at the playground.We had a lot of fun watching the Olympics. We even let the girls watch some TV...special occasion and all. See...that's the Men's Hockey Final. It would have been unpatriotic of us not to watch. To be honest, we do let Katie watch a bit of TV...usually a 30 min Super Why...a few times a week? Seem like a lot but I know it's really not.

Sam's talking a lot more now...she knows Moo, Oin' (for Oink) and Neigh for cow, pig and horse. Duck, Out, Up, Down, maybe Hi? Also very close to saying's now "Brea". She LOVES bread. I'm sure there's others too...Bath...I'll think and try and add them properly to the sidebar.

Katie is in a questioning phase...she often says "When Sam goes to sleep can I watch a show?" Followed closely by "Is Sam Tired". And it's never just one question...well, maybe it IS one, but asked a million times...I'm amazed at her persistence and also my extreme lack of patience. It's like a very loud buzzing noise that won't stop. Really I know it's normal and a good thing and a phase that will end eventually. Her fear of elevators is also getting tiresome...need to figure out how to conquer that one.

Anyway, things are good, I've got a video uploading to share soon.

Have a great day!
PS...Funny story quick...the other day I was doing things around the house with the girls wandering around and playing...and I heard the answering I had missed hearing the phone ring and it had gone to the machine...It happened a few times where I was wondering "where is the phone that I'm not hearing it ring?!"...Before I realized that Sam has figured out how to push the play button on the answering machine. What a sneaky little girl!
