Before and After Photos because you know you love them… and more snobbery.

So we have a big clan and we needed a big house to fit all my children.  An old shoe would no longer do!


So we bought our second fixer upper.  A very spacious 8 bedroom house.  The first one is now a rental and it’s still in grave need of more fixer-uppering (I know that’s not a word, please don’t email me about it)  There are never enough hours in the day.

So welcome to my beautiful eat in kitchen! (We also have a dinning room) Continue reading

While I would never in my wildest dreams wish any kind of illness or sickness upon my children, sometimes I wish they would get sick already!?

Why you might ask?

My family is very healthy.  Very rarely does anyone get a sniffle, which might seem surprising given the size of our family.  I am not a germ-a-phobe.  I do not run around after the children with Clorox Disinfectant Wipes to keep the house clean and germ free (although I do use them when I decide to clean the house and they work well) I didn’t make people wash their hands before holding the children as babies.

Listen Earnestly.

Image“Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what.  If you don’t listen eagerly to the little things when they are little, they won’t tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them all of it has always been big stuff.”

Catherine M. Wallace

What a wise lady.

Glittering glints

Shine upon the glimmering

Shimmer of the silvery mane

Weekly photo Challenge: Escape

My weekly photo challenge on the other blog!

Writings of a Mrs


I love laying back in the poolside chairs while the kids splash and play and checking out the beautiful view 😉


The Granby Zoo in Granby, Quebec, Canada is one of our favorite places to go with the children.  I would love to escape for a day away here with the family.
