Sunday Pictures

Asher – 6 years

Chancery – 3.5 years



This may be what Sunday Pictures will become.



Chancery is wearing her fleece since she is cold, & hiding in her fort.



But she wants you to take note of her pretty toes.

“I’ve never looked prettier!” she told me.



Asher was also cold, so he’s wearing his fleece as well.  He’s also locked himself away with a book until his grumpy attitude passes.



A Lego book seems to be the cure!

Chancery: “Can’t we do something else today?”

Asher: “It’s DADDY!”



Chancery: “Kisses for Daddy!”



Asher: “Because we love him!”

Pre-Olympics Teaser

If the Olympics were all like this, I would probably be more likely to watch…  I wonder if they still do things like this?

Nice kitty!



We found Asher & Thanet enjoying a relaxing afternoon awhile back.


Asher was on his DS, ‘petting’ Thanet with his feet.


Both seemed to be enjoying the other’s company.  It doesn’t happen often!

Chancery: “Are you a little cold, Asher?”



Chancery: “I am a bit cold since the windows are all open.”



Asher: “I will read you a story about a warm place, maybe that will help.”



Chancery: “I don’t think so, Asher!”



Asher: “Then what will we do, Chancery?”



Chancery: “We’ll sit here until Mummy says we are done…”



Chancery: “and then we’ll go get our snuggies, Asher!”

Last Day of Kindergarten

Remember these pictures from September?
Asher’s first day of Kindergarten
A little help from Chancery?

Well, we made it through the year!  I didn’t remember to take the last day of school picture until after school was over for the day.  Asher wanted to show all the things he’d brought home that day.
He’s wearing a badge that says “Congratulations on getting to grade one!”  It is a milestone that I wasn’t sure we’d get to at some points this past year!  Now we have the whole summer to celebrate!

A Bad Combination

The kids & I met up with some friends at a park last week.  They don’t live in town, so we don’t see them all that often, & it seemed the kids needed to learn how to play nicely together without creating problems for each other.


At one point Chancery came over to JJ & I & reported, “The boys are not playing nicely!  They are playing pirates, & we are playing kitties, & it’s not working!”


It was clear to see that those two games would not work out well, as JJ pointed out, “Of course not!  Pirates usually have parrots, not kitties!”

Asher: “Did everyone notice what is sitting beside me on the couch?”



Asher: “It’s a book about Lego stuff!”



Asher: “It’s a bit like a normal book, but all the pictures are Lego!”



Chancery: “Asher read a few of the stories to me in the car yesterday, but I wasn’t listening very well because I was pretty tired, so I was singing to stay awake.”



Asher: “She sings some funny songs when she’s tired!”

Remakes are never as good as the originals, but this music video is pretty clever!

I had put Chancery to bed for her nap, & after about 10 minutes of ‘barking’ from her room, I went up to investigate.  She knows she is not supposed to be loud, but to sleep, so since her stuffed puppy Ginger seemed to be such a distraction, I took it away from her.


After I took Ginger away, I went into the washroom.  I could hear Chancery calling out to me in distress


“Mummy!  Did you put Ginger in the toilet?”


I’m a pretty strict Mum, but I wouldn’t go that far!
