Busy with Travels

My what a busy summer it has been! I know I have been far too absent from blogging but 3 little ones are keeping me on my toes. Hubby took a 6 week sabbatical from work and we traveled 4 of the 6 weeks! So I have lots to chat about and here goes.

Yes that is me crazy enough to travel back to Canada with a then 2 and a half month old baby. we are at the airport ready for takeoff! I am happy to report the kids did great flying.

Hugs in downtown Toronto in front of the CN Tower.

We took several trips within the trip and here we were on our way to Niagara Falls. We had stopped for a lovely picnic by Lake Ontario. I just adore this picture of my sweet girl and her flowers!

Snug as a bug in the Moby wrap!

I was having a good hair day, so here's another shot of the crew!

We never made it to the Greek festival, "Taste of the Danforth" when we lived in Canada but it was going on so we checked it out. Man was the food ever awesome!

How cute are these 2?

Lastly we made it to Cottage Country were we had the opportunity to rent a previous co-workers family cabin. It was really beautiful and relaxing there.
They sure have a nice place, we enjoyed staying there!

So Peaceful!


The family who owns the cottage keeps art supplies and encourages you to decorate a rock and add to their garden. (Do you see the Gene Simmons one Dear Hubby did?)

I added a smiley face later. It's my legacy for whoever sees it to "Have a Nice Day"!

On our way back to Toronto we stopped at Santa's Village an amusement park and I couldn't resist showing our little elves. Love the mischievousness!!!

Here's the cutest elf of all!
More travel updates as little elves allow ;)

Sunday Verse

Leviticus 27:30-32 (New International Version)

30 " 'A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the LORD; it is holy to the LORD. 31 If a man redeems any of his tithe, he must add a fifth of the value to it. 32 The entire tithe of the herd and flock—every tenth animal that passes under the shepherd's rod—will be holy to the LORD.

Today we began teaching the concept of tithing to our 5 year old after he earned his first allowance. I am very proud of him and know that I am building the Kingdom of God!

Showers of Blessings!

Hello Blogosphere! Long time no blog as I have been a busy gal this summer. See exhibit of Miss Maple Leaf below. But I couldn't miss out on the exciting surprise blog shower for Dawn of Spontaneous Clapping! And by the way Dawn I love that photo of ya'll ;)
And speaking of Miss Maple Leaf, she was wondering if Peanut (Dawn's Baby Bump) has a prom date yet?

So lovely Dawn remember when I was waiting to find out what gender my 3rd kiddo was? I had outfits planned for each outcome and pink it was for me. I have to admit I am always wrong and my husband always right when it comes to guessing. Anyhow I am rambling. So sadly I didn't get to use these adorable high tops.
They scream "B" to me. For those or you reading who don't know what I mean by B he is Peanut's Daddy to be.

I did an applique to this onesie and am dying from the cuteness. Do you think I could get away with doing a shirt like this for my five year old?

Here is the whole ensemble. Dawn, Please take pictures of Peanut, pretty please?!

And Dawn needs something shiny and new too. So here is my hand at trying to make tile necklaces. Hope you enjoy them. I mailed your brown paper package tied up with string yesterday. (By the way it took me all week to pack it... something to do with 3 kids and being 3 times busier!)

On to motherly advice. Since this is a baby shower I will just alert you that little boys have little fire hoses and they will use them, watch out! Which brings me to my next bit of advice, shower when you can! Dawn, you will be a great Momma and the best part is you get to have a Momma's Boy. There is a special connection with Moms and Sons. Can't wait to see Peanut when he arrives. Much Joy and Love and Hugs from Texas to You!
