Memorable Birthdays

Twins-2nd-Birthday-Party

My birthday is December 31, and it's always been both a blessing and a curse. As a child, I often felt disappointed that some of my gifts were for both Christmas and birthday, in one. When you are a kid this is a pretty big deal! Then as I got older, I felt that my special day was blurred into the bigger festivity that is New Year’s Eve. Even though my birthday always ended with fireworks, it was always an addition to … [Read more...]

JUNE 2014 was truly one beautiful month, we had so many sunny days. So obviously much time was spent outdoors.

It may look like a concrete jungle from above {good comparison from someone who lives in Alberta}, yet within lies a whole lotta everything.  I'm currently in Los Angeles for meetings and I just have to say - I big-puffy-cheesy love this city! Palm trees, sun, something to see at every turn. And yes, I even love the movie and TV show billboards everywhere! It's like my special sneak preview, since we don't … [Read more...]

Finding Her Voice #BarbieProject

Finding-Her-Voice-BarbieProject

It's been such an eye opening experience to be the mother of twins. While all my girls are complete individuals and I recognize and celebrate that, any parent of multiples will say that you really notice personalities when you have two of the same age. After all, they are always with you and most oftentimes, always together. My Sophia, Twin A, is dominant in every way. Her boisterous and outgoing personality was … [Read more...]

MAY 2014 started with a bang as our family headed to Beaches Resorts in Turks and Caicos! Located on beautiful grace bay, we spent a lot of time in the sun, sand and pool - and the trip could not have been better. Actually, most of our May 2014 was spent in Turks and Caicos, since we didn't return until mid-month. How's that for a spectacular May!? Once we returned, it was activity and school catch-up plus a TON of … [Read more...]

toothless-sophia

It was our last day in Turks and Caicos when my little twinlin Sophia came running up to me, "Mom! My tooth is loose, my tooth is loose!" Ahhh, what a milestone! A first twin tooth, loose, in Turks and Caicos. There's one for the baby book ... er, if I ever work on them, that is. I'm a total failure in that department, but that's another story. Of course with the wiggling of Sophias tooth, twin competition had to … [Read more...]
