Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

It has almost become cliche to say those words. But at our house we're still trying to do what we can when we can.
When we have finished with our things we donate them to a second hand store. And we shred our paper to put in the guinea pig cage as bedding.

Lucky us got some great books second hand from someone at M's work.

And we like to recycle space also. After moving the grown-ups from the upstairs big bedroom to the mainfloor bedroom and the kids from the upstairs small room to the upstairs big bedroom to appease our neighbours....we have now moved the grown-ups to the upstairs small bedroom because we are freezing downstairs and the upstairs room is warmer. An upside of this is that I now get to use the awesome antique dresser I bought a while ago and our guests will now have four drawers to use in the new spare bedroom(main floor bedroom). Confused? So was I when I woke up in the middle night and couldn't figure out where I was!! Upside for the kids....they don't have to travel as far when they climb into our bed at night.

In the spirit

M has taken to reading the kids some of 'Christmas Carol' every night before bed. To better get into the mood we decided it would be neat to read by candlelight. The kids love it.

Moving On

Just a few last pics of our recent company.

Our poor guinea pigs had been ignored while our friends were here so M and I cleaned up their cage last night.....they were appreciative.
E has been admiring a L_E_G_O ship and I wanted to see if I could modify our Playmbil ship to his satisfaction. After many minutes of's the result. New sails and lego flat pieces on the deck so the mini-figs can stand. I also installed L_E_G_O friendly stairs and made a 'prison' cage. We'll see if it passes his inspection.

Can't Not Be Happy

These are the smiling faces I see around the table in the morning.

It's been game-pa-looza around here for these two. And here's a pic of the babies.
And the weather was perfect for the park.
And here's a little air guitar for you rock and roll fans out there.

2 plus 2 = 4

A baby face? We don't often have one of these on our blog.

Grandad made these super cool side tables that hang on their bunkbeds. The kids LOVE them.
Tomfoolery all over the place....except not by E....he's busy doing school work.
A and Kthrn have been joined at the hip playing together. E is feeling a little displaced now that he's not the main show in the house.

Lucky us were in Ottwa for a LEGO exhibit at the museum.

We visited the kids old favourite....the gymnastics centre.
And of course....the park with their cousins.
Now we're back safe and sound.

We were lucky and got a baby to watch the other night for a couple of hours. The boys brought down our musical instruments and kept her happy.

And we had a great evening tonight with some new friends that were in town seeing the sights.

We met these great people on the cruise we took in October. Great people.

Tomorrow we are off on a little adventure.....I'll keep you posted.

Snday in Review

It was a beautiful day. And we really wanted to spend it outside. So we went to a super duper park.

But when it was time to leave, they didn't want to go. So....we went and picked up pizza and stayed longer.
