Happy Thanksmas !

Thanksgiving painting

Ohhhhh yes - loving the dirty hands

Our Thanksgiving crafts (and a rainbow - she's loving rainbows lately)

Thanksgiving evening I made us sweet potatoes with marshmellows

Genna tried it - but called it yucky

What do you think glow worm?
Cuddles outside on the weekend - SUCH nice weather!

Genna's little tree

Helping with the decorations

Dadda putting up the lights - our first big family tree - SO exciting. (I said that to Genna in the morning - today we're going to go pick out a tree - so exciting. She now says it for everything - SO EXCITING!)

Now Santa - I've been a very good girl, here's my list!

Big smiles :)

And Finished! Genevieve LOVES it - comes down every morning asking me to turn the lights on then gives the tree a hello pat :)
On the weekend we went to the beach (and you actually ASKED to have 'tails' i.e. pigtails)

Cutie Pie

Down on the beach with Steve, Selina, Amelia & Clara

A change after getting wet in the ocean

Having an edamame snack (soy beans)

More More!

Back at home we hopped in the pool to cool off (HOT day!). First time both of us have ever had a swim in the pool I think!

I got it!


You had a GREAT time - we'll definitely have to do this often this summer :)

And one funny story. I was putting you to bed the other night and you insisted I pick you up, rock you in my arms and sing Rock a Bye Baby. I picked you up then said 'Oh Genna, you're getting to big to do this.' You looked up at me and replied 'No Mama, you big, I little!' Ha ha - can't argue with that logic :)

We're Back!

After 2 weeks of sickness we are finally both feeling better - hooray (knock on wood!!!) We didn't get a ton of photos though over the past weeks, as we spent a lot of time just relaxing and recovering.

After being stuck in the house for 6 days (sick) when you finally felt better we went to the park for an hour

Fun with Dada

Reading a card from Grandma

Your new friend James who lives down the street came for a play this week

We had to pop into the post office, so we stopped for a babychino too and you picked this cookie :)

Quietly singing Rock a Bye Baba

Popping Bubbles again

Talking about her day at daycare- I tried to get her to repeat what she had been telling me but then the lure of seeing what I was recording was too much ha ha!

Lately you have started telling me when you're tired. Last night after dinner you said 'I tired, go to bed early?' Ha ha - ok - sounds good to me!

Tonight our exact conversation was:
G: Mama - Where Dada?
Me: He's at work 
G: Oh. Call Dada?
Me: Well if we call Dada what will you say?
G: I Love You, Love You Dada!
So of course we did call him so she could say that - how sweet!!!

Last night we had dinner outside - SUCH lovely weather! And you tried your first bite of proper American style pumpkin pie - yummmm !

This morning - you actually left the pigtails in for about 10 minutes - too cute :)

Beach & Fair

Ah here you go Mom - we did get one photo (sort of) of Genna with the lamb hood. Bummer she wouldn't put the whole costume on, maybe next year!

On our day off last week we spent a few hours at the beach

Dirty hands!!! You kept digging your hands into the sand so you'd have an excuse to go wash them in the ocean.


All Clean !

It was such a beautiful Spring day - we had a blast :)
Back at home - you look SO pretty!!!
On the weekend we went to our local primary school's fair - you picked out this Thomas cookie

Yummm it's nice

Funny Dada

We weren't sure if you wanted to go on any rides, but you kept saying Tea Cup - Tea Cup!

You had a GREAT time!

Waiting in line for your second tea cup ride with me - squishy face :)


On the way back to the car you spotted the park and yelled SLIDE PLEASE! So we stopped to play for a bit.

Fixing your bike - with a drawer full of keys - of course :)

All Fixed !

Fixing her bike :)

And a random cute video :) She loves putting on my shoes and walking around and of course 'lips' (chapstick).

I just have to tell one story too. Your vocabulary is expanding every day, Today I was telling you my throat was sore. You said 'Oh sorry Mama, I kiss it better?' I told you I needed to go to the doctor so you said 'My throat sore too, I go doctor too?' So cute :) Your throat wasn't really sore, you just like playing with the toys there and like the doctor because of the song 'monkeys jumping on the bed - Mama called the doctor and the doctor said, No cheeky monkeys jumping on the bed!'
