Asher – 7.5 years

Chancery – 5.5 years


IMG_1060 Chancery: “He’s not coming, Mum!”


IMG_1061 Chancery: “And I’m asking him in a nice voice and everything!”


IMG_1062 Asher: “I can see him, he’s getting closer!”


IMG_1063 Chancery: “There he is!”


IMG_1064 Asher: “I think he’s toying with us, Chancery.”


IMG_1065 Digby: “I am totally messing with their heads!”

A few days ago I heard yelling from the front yard.  Apparently Chancery had dropped her backpack off on the front steps & decided to walk through the snow in the front yard (which thankfully is mostly gone now).  Unfortunately, with the warmer temperatures we had that day, she sank right in & couldn’t get her boot back out.  What’s a mother to do in these situations?  Run out & help immediately, or get the camera?


Chancery was not impressed that I opted for the latter!

IMG_1056 Chancery: “Wouldn’t it be cool if our stuffies became real animals?”


IMG_1057 Asher: “Yeah, then we’d have a cat & a koala, & a dog!”


IMG_1058 Asher: “Though I’m pretty sure a real cat wouldn’t sit on my head.”



Chancery: “Yeah, & stuffies don’t run away either!”

Flashback Friday

I thought I’d look back at what we were up to around this time 5 years ago.  Chancery was not quite a year old, & apparently the weather was starting to get pretty nice…

IMG_1049 Asher: “Now these certainly are SUN-day pictures, Chancery!”


IMG_1050 Chancery: “That wasn’t a very good pun, Asher.”


IMG_1051 Chancery: “But I know you were trying to make LIGHT of the situation.”


IMG_1052 Asher: “I think we should just stop, we aren’t sounding very BRIGHT, Chancery.”


IMG_1053 Chancery: “Ok, we have to GLOW now anyway!”

IMG_1041 Chancery: “He likes Mummy!”


IMG_1042 Hello!


IMG_1043 Asher: “Come back, Digby!”


IMG_1044 Chancery: “I guess we’re back to just you & me, Asher!”


IMG_1046 Asher: “We ignored him, & he came back!”


IMG_1047 Chancery: “He’s such a silly dog, right Asher?”


IMG_1048 Asher: “He’s just really cute!”

Grocery Shopping Can Be Exciting!

Yesterday I had to take the kids grocery shopping, since we have been running low on several items, & they were not in school, so I was unable to roam the aisles alone.  I prepped the kids for the impending shopping trip, which they responded to with moans of disappointment.  I figured they were at about the end of in home entertainment & would be glad for the outing, but I was wrong.  Then I reminded them about the free cookies, & they were raring to go!


In the store they helped me get some produce, then begged to go see their lobster friends.  Then it was on to the bakery!  While the kids 250px-Macaroons_in_detailhad been distracted by the lobsters I had perused the 1/2 price bakery rack, & found a box of macaroons.


The kids got their cookies, fought over whose torn it was to hang on the front of the cart, helped me get juice & yogurt, then Asher noticed the macaroons & exclaimed, “Oh yay!  You got those coconut things that I don’t know the name of!”


We ended up with 3 pretty happy shoppers at the end of it, & they also helped me put stuff away!  Maybe summer grocery shopping won’t be so bad after all!
