Harper Turns 3
  • Harper Turns 3

  • Miss Harper turned 3 this week. To celebrate, we had some friends and family to party at the Magrath Slip & Slide. I'm pretty sure she was the grumpiest birthday girl ever.  Things to know about 3 year old Harper: She is extremely opinionated about whats she wears Skirts are "hulups" D [...]
  • Happy Canada Day!

  • I am so grateful for this country I live in. The freedoms and opportunities I enjoy.  Most of us started out the day wearing red and white. Jack rode his bike through the biggest mud puddle he could find, so had to change. I tried to squeeze into pants I don't really fit in yet, and had to change, [...]
  • Blessing of Wren Lucile

  • Little Wren received a name and a blessing from her Dad on sunday. She had a whole pile of family who love her attend the blessing. My kids are so fortunate to have such an amazing support system. About 50 people came to our house for lunch afterwards, and thankfully the weather cooperated, because [...]
  • and Wren makes 3.

  • The new addition to the sibling mix has gone better than I thought it would. Other than Harper regressing (again) in the potty training department, the kids for the most part love her. Especially when she's awake. Jack gets all excited and will yell "Harper, the baby's awake!" and they'll both come [...]
  • Meet Wren Lucile Oviatt

  • We became a family of five on Tuesday, May 13, 2014 as we welcomed Wren Lucile into the world. My OB was going out of town and agreed to induce me a few days early. We checked into the hospital at 6:30 am, they broke my water at 7am, inserted the epidural at 7:15am, and started me on the oxytocin at [...]
  • Jack Turns 4

  • I can't believe this kid is 4 already. We kept it low key this year, just having the Grandparents in for cake. Jack at 4 years old is curious. He is always asking questions. He can be pretty mean to his sister. He can also be incredibly  sweet to her, reading her books cuddled in the rocking chair i [...]
  • It's Her Party

  • Last week, we gathered 50 family and  friends together to celebrate Harper's 2nd birthday. We rented the slip & slide and had a BBQ. I think the adults had just as much fun as the kids! Kyle and Gunnar walking up the hill Robin checking on Baby Griffin Harper trying out her water gu [...]
  • Jack Turns 3

  • Yesterday, Jack turned 3! This is the first year he's actually been able to anticipate the event and show some excitement, which made it a lot more fun for me. We had all of his (local) cousins over for a cake and ice cream and it was chaos. Jack loved it. I ended up getting the cake from Kathryn, a [...]
  • Lady Baby's First Tooth

  • Miss Harper finally managed to pop out a tooth. Front right bottom. I'd be more excited about having a happy baby back, but she's not so happy. I'm pretty sure there are one or two more teeth coming soon...
  • Sleep Eating

  • Jack does not sleep anywhere except in a bed in a room by himself. We're lucky if we can even get him to sleep in the car for more than 30 minutes. We went out to eat with some friends this weekend and had ordered Jack some naan bread and tzatziki. While the rest of us were waiting for our food, we [...]
