I am sick with the cold too.  I have bad lungs and it SUCKS when I get sick.  BLAH!!!

We had a good day enjoying the fall weather.  We took a little trip into town and got some great deals at the shop.  And I had to take a few pics of the view.

Oct 20, 2018


It is cold and dreary outside and half our family has a cold, but at least we have a nice warm house and yummy food.  I definitely love looking out the window at the fall colors.  Something about the beautiful fall foliage speaks to me.

We took our last trip of the year to Yarmouth today.  I love it there.  It is such a pretty, friendly,  warm, and convenient little town.  I was proud to be able to stick my diet while eating and I was able to do our Halloween shopping while sticking to our budget.  Yay me!! And my kids are going to be adorable!

What a crazy weather day!  It is snowing!! At least the furnace guy came today to make sure we can get warm! We were all very grateful.  I
The snow makes me think of Christmas.  And when Little Prince saw the snow he sat watching it through the window whispering, "Christmas!"

We are having a family movie night tonight.  I love nights like this with cuddly jammies, popcorn, movies and sweet kids.  Times like this I am reminded that life is good.

Today was a fun day filled with carrot muffins, pumpkin loaf, nacho fries and Halloween decorations.  And as I sit here getting ready to go to bed listening to my girls giggling together, I feel really blessed.

I have been doing something fun for the kids and they love it.  Even Prince Charming loves it.  Every day I place citrus and cucumber in our water jug and fill it with water.  And after 24 hours I dehydrate the fruit for Christmas decorations.

This Time

It is definitely fall out there.  I LOVE fall here in the valley.  The colors are wonderful.  The hills are covered in a beautiful quilt of orange, red, and yellows.  The pumpkins and decorations just make me happy.  I slow as I drive into town so that I can really soak up the beauty around me.  I love warm sweaters, hot coffee, and cool air.  It really is my favorite time of year.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends and family.  I have so much to be thankful for and I hope that you feel as blessed as I do.

Mommy Shark

There is a song on YouTube called "Baby Shark".  Little Prince loves it.  So when I came across a shark sleeper when I was shopping, I had to buy it.

He was thrilled.  He laughed and kept singing "Mommy Shark!"  Very sweet.

One of my favorite stores in Yarmouth has a habit of having the wrong signs on their fruits and veggies.  I love this store and I get a kick out of noticing them.  I was in Yarmouth yesterday and I saw these signs:

Date night

I had a fun day today with Prince Charming.  We had a date night.  It will probably be our last one of the year and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Good Way

Is there anything better than a dance party in the living room with my kids followed by doing a little something for myself? What a good way to end my day.

My house

I sitting with my coffee and love listening to my kids.  Princess Belle chatting in her room, the little girls giggling together and Little Prince playing in his room.  My house is NEVER as clean as I would like, but my house is a happy home.

Sep 29, 2018


This was a great day. I went to a business expo with Prince Charming and I got a free haircut.

I went by the library and was given a gigantic pile of my favorite magazines.

And after Little Prince went to bed, the girls and I watched old videos of the kids. It was so fun to see them enjoy it.

Funny Thing

It is funny how much joy I can get from my kids.  I just spent a few hours watching Disney songs with my kids.  They danced, sang, and totally enjoyed themselves.  Even Princess Belle joined in the fun.  It was honestly the best part of my day.

Cute Things He Says

Little Prince has been so cute lately.  Yesterday, I went in to change his diaper while wearing a sleeper that is VERY soft and shaped like a unicorn.  The moment I walked I to his room, he ran up to me and started caressing my sleeper, and holding my tail.  Then he saw the hood and tried to put it up on my head.  I put it up and he excitedly shouted "Unicorn, mommy!"  He was so sweet.

Later, he was up on the landing upstairs.  He saw two deer in our yard.  He started pointing and saying, "Moose!" over and over again.  He is the cutest little guy ever.  I love my boy so much.

I have a request! Can winter finally come so that all the coyotes stop howling and the bears go hibernate and stay the heck off my back step!!!  I take back anything bad I ever said about city living!  I am so done with scary country things.  I don't want to be afraid of my yard

Sep 24, 2018

So Proud

Little Prince is doing so well lately!!! I am so proud of the things he is learning.  He is learning to recognize words and put letters together to form them.  He is also learning to communicate.  He puts words together to clarify what he is requesting.  Just today, I was changing him and he said,"Red, black, puppy, jacket" to indicate that he wanted the other sleeper instead of the one I was putting on him.  He says, "Hi Mommy!" with enthusiasm every time he sees me.  I LOVE my boy!

I had a bit of a bad day today.  I did my best to look on the bright side and my sweet baby boy was completely adorable and that helped.  Even on my bad days, I am a lucky lady.

Great Day

We took the little girls to their favorite place in Greenwood.  It was a fun day and we tired them out.  I love days like this.

Sep 20, 2018


I am so very done with country living.  I am tired of skunks, bugs, rodents, and bears. I don't want to be scared to go outside my house at night.  I don't garden because I am scared of my yard.  I want neighbors, I want shopping, I want convenience, I want to feel safe!!  I want our bear friend to go hibernate and stop visiting our yard!!!

Princess Belle had a good appointment today.  The doctor was lovely and seems positive that he will be able to help her out with regaining a formal diagnosis.  We hope that we can fast-track the process since we have a copy of her original diagnosis on hand.  It could take up to two years if we have to start the process all over again!!!

Sep 18, 2018


Princess Belle has an appointment tomorrow.   It is the start of the process of getting the papers to have her rediagnosed with autism.  Her original diagnosis has been run out for years.  It is silly, she will never stop being autistic but there it is.  I want to get it on the record to enable her to get access to help if she should need extra supports as an adult (only TWO years!).  I hope that I can adequately explain her situation.  I want to do right by her.

I'm Loving It

Today was a fun family day.  The kids were especially excited to have treats and watch movies.  I LOVE family time!

One of Those Days

I am having one of those days where my head is aching so badly that I can't function.  I am spending the day nursing coffee and handfuls of painkillers.  Not a productive day at all.

Good Morning

As I lay in bed this morning waiting to get enough energy to get up and get some coffee, I had to smile as my autistic baby boy was singing the ABC's song at the top of his lungs.  He woke up in a fabulous mood! I love it.

When I finally got up to face the day, I nursed my giant cup of coffee and listened to Princess Belle chatting to herself and my little girls singing together as loud as they could.  Everyone woke up bursting with happiness.  I am do very blessed.

The little girls helped me clean the van and so I took them our for a treat.  It was such a fun day.  They had a great time helping!
