Asher – 6.5 years

Chancery – 4.5 years



Asher: “Is this what you want us to do, Mum?”



Chancery: “I think she wants us to stand up here so everyone can see our nice church clothes.”



Asher: “Don’t forget a nice smile, Chancery!”



Chancery: “And move your hips just a little so they can see how great our clothes look!”



Asher: “Like this?”

A Fair Bit o’ Snow

We have been having some fairly good snowstorms here lately.  These pictures were taken a few weeks ago, & we probably have another foot at this point, not to mention the nice piles where the guy who works for the city comes with the giant snowblower & blows all the piles from the plow up into our lawn.


Here Asher demonstrates just how deep the snow is in the yard.  His legs are totally immersed in the snow.



Now Asher is standing on the snbowblower pile, which has grown considerably bigger since this picture was taken.



I think if Asher had his way we would take pictures like this everyday to document the daily amount of snow in our yard.

The kids have gone out to play in it a few times, but it gets pretty crunchy & difficult to play in quite quickly.  Today the kids are having a day off school despite no new snow & clear roads.  I guess there is a storm moving in sometime today, & they are worried about kids getting stuck at school…  Asher is starting to like being home more than going to school, so I guess it’s time to break out the workbooks & do some learning!

Sunday Pictures: Part 2

Asher – 6.5 years



Asher: “Hey!  I didn’t get any pictures taken!  Chancery did, but I didn’t!  I want my picture taken!”



Asher: “I’m wearing my lounging clothes since I am sick again today.”



Asher: “Oh what fun Mummy & I are going to have today!”

Chancery: “I have been waiting to wear this dress to church, but last week it was too snowy!”



Chancery: “And I get to have a braid in my hair & I LOVE it!”



Chancery: “Asher is not feeling well again today, & he said, ‘No pictures!’”



Chancery: “So I get to do the photos all by myself!”

Stealing the Show

The kid in this commercial just couldn’t keep it together…  It’s pretty funny!

Sleepy Talk

Asher has been sick the last few days, & apparently last night was having some weird feverish dreams.


I heard him calling for me, so I went upstairs to see what he needed.


Asher: “My little nightlight was on, it was on by my alarm…”

and he seemed to have gone back to sleep.


Me: “Asher, are you awake?”


Asher: “Yes, I’m ok.”



Later he was doing a very sad cry.  PChad went up this time…

Asher: “I lost my map!  I know I don’t really have a map, but I lost it.”


PChad said he seemed to know these were dreams & they didn’t make sense, but it was very frustrating to him all the same.


Asher: “My mind is just not letting me get to sleep!”

Quick, Mummy!

Chancery just came up behind me as I was vacuuming.


“Help me , Mummy!  I need a kleenex right now!  My nose is drooling!”

When You Are Sick on Your Birthday…

Sunday was my birthday, & a snow day, & I was sick.  It was a perfect trifecta.  So, while I lay in bed, the kids made me birthday cards!

Chancery made me this birthday card:


The front “Birthday”


The inside “Mummy, Happy, (& 1 heart for each of us)”

The letters are all there, if not in the right order.



Asher made this one.  I had just been to a ladies’ tea & brought a word scramble home, so he decided to utilize that in my card.







Then, since I wasn’t feeling well, they made me get well cards!

This is from Asher:


Front – Since he made bubble letters, & the ‘t’ looked like a cross, he decided to draw Jesus on it.



Inside – We have another word scramble!  Asher saw that I had written some letters on the right side of the page & asked me about them.  “I used Grandma Toots’ trick to figure one of the scrambled words out,” I told him.  Asher then informed me, “You are not allowed to write on the card like that.”  I guess I should have used scrap paper!



Back – isn’t it nice?


Chancery also made me a get well card!


Front “Card card caar”



Inside – “Chancery Mummy”, another heart & a design



I also got a picture of the world from Chancery for my birthday!


I am glad to say that I feel much better today, but I seemed to have passed it on to the kids.  Hopefully it steers clear of PChad!

Flat Chancery

PChad has had a lot of meetings in the evenings lately, so I’ve been putting the kids to bed more often.  When he gets home from his meetings, he will often go up to the kids’ rooms & tuck them in again.  PChad was a bit surprised when he almost stepped on Chancery the other night!  She was just lying right by the door!  He turned on the hall light to see what was going on, to discover this…



Chancery had taken off her clothes & then carefully laid them out to look like a person!

Asher: “I was reading my Lego magazine just now.”



Asher: “It’s really great because it tells you all kinds of things you can build with Lego.”


Chancery: “Like a giant piece of Lego?”



Asher: “I suppose you could, Chancery, but that’s not very exciting.”



Asher: “See, here’s a lion you can make!”
