July 1st and 4th 2018

Well good grief… a pair of very colour coordinate holidays that I did NOT blog yet! Anyway… enjoy!

Canada Day or July 1st… Red and White. A rather at home event this year as it rained, but we made do. IMG_20180701_102037_074

We drove out to a Tim Hortons and enjoyed all sorts of yummy donuts.20180701_112514_HDR

July 4th was another at home whole family kind of thing for us this year. Ken was very busy with work this summer and on call. 20180704_110646

It was a sunnier day so we did manage some fun outside with bubbles.IMG_20180704_124939_926

Happy Halloween

Ok so total catch up before the 1st… not likely, but some posts… this I can do.

 

Well another Halloween is done and dusted. This year may have been the last one the twins trick or treat at. They are growing up so quickly!20181031_141750

Echo’s costume was a combination of a Ren in the Glen (Post to follow on that fun time) purchase, and a tail made by Ken from faux fur we picked up at Joann’s. Bam – an adorable unicorn.20181031_141856

Trinity went smart and asked for a Koala onesie she could then wear as pj’s.20181031_141907

Emanuel went classic as a pirate.20181031_141930

Zander and Gavin did a repeat on their wizard as they humored mom.20181031_141955

This year part of Zander and Gavin’s schooling is to plan the themed meals for Echo. They seem to lean on the side of deserts. We may need to discuss balance next!20181031_121135_HDR

We had a lovely light afternoon and then in the evening were off to the Novak’s to trick or treat with Aidan (Stan Lee). It was great fun and a huge haul!!

Not bad for a Halloween that seemed to creep up on us. We only got the pumpkin carved 2 days before!!20181029_212418

I even dressed up… well sort of. I had bought an amazing hat from a local vender… Three Bears – Fun Fur Accessories HERE. Paired up with a few pieces I had on hand, Ken felt it was very… Russian Mail Order Bride… I felt is was deliciously warm. In fact, I ordered a special order matching Muff from the same woman!!! 20181031_142134

Just a Jolly Look at June

Really, there almost isn’t a point in posting a stand alone June blog post after my run down of the days of crazy. June is always busy but with Ken in charge of a major project at work that kept us near home and cancelled most of our exciting and travel required plans… not so much on the spontaneous and crazy. You can read all about the crazy days HERE, and the new baby in the house HERE.20180606_145647

IMG_20180609_145616_277

In fact, June is VERY photo heavy what with the new pet in the house. So there is an additional MOMO post to follow this one HERE.20180616_001223

Of course Neko-chan still got love.IMG_20180622_091733_479

We did get back on our walk to the YMCA for morning programming and swimming, etc routine. The twins are too old for club (in fact, Emanuel is on the verge of too old himself) but the other 3 are finding it entertaining. We added run club on Thursdays during the day for the oldest 2 (hopefully they will run a 5K or 2 by the end of summer) and dance Friday nights for Miss Echo.20180622_161133
