My first post in a long time should be, yay, we did it!

We sold our house twice, went into major temporary debt, had my wedding rings stolen, fired our real estate agent.....but we both agree that it was all worth it.
We got out of the city, at least for the next 5 years, and hope to enjoy every aspect of our (not quite) 3 acre property!

Soccer star

The picture is out of focus, but Owen isn't. He is a very determined player and definitely stands out.

The great thing about going through old boxes and cleaning house is finding the person you used to be.

HRH doesn't like how I make hot chocolate.
Notice Finn's little finger?

Kev brought gifts, that are still being used daily.
Ah, the bonding.

We miss Kev

After dropping Kev & Ter off at the airport, the silence was deafening. The boys did not say a word. The shock of their big cousin leaving, I guess.

Ow's First Hockey Tournament Pics

Can you believe it was - 42 with the wind here this morning!! Alas, I had the van, so the boys got to go to school. Across the country it is +3 in Nelson and -7 in Halifax. Does someone want to explain why it is so cold here?!

the only thing coming out of my mouth today. This is the kind of day I wish I had a wife to watch the kids so I can hole myself up in the bedroom and sleep it off.

He makes me so proud

After picking Ty up from a playdate with Neal, the first thing he does is sit down to get his homework done. He is a shockingly conscientious student, and I love that.

Went skating on the canal yesterday

We took the kids skating yesterday on the world's longest skating rink, it was -22 with the wind so by the end of it Finn was freezing. You would think they would then be exhausted, but by the late afternoon this began.......
Finn literally looks like a lion.
Check out Finn's expression here, landing on Ow, feet tense. I think I see a smile on Ty's face. Yup.
Owen's big moves involve going for the legs which is why he is mostly on the ground in these pics. Finn is trying to take advantage of Ty leaping in mid air.
Shockingly, we were able to end the chaos before one of them starting crying. Aren't we great parents (minus us taking pictures of the boys pummeling each other).

Suggestions Welcome

I had the day off yesterday because of Finn's dental appointment ($2000 quote! what!?). So I did this after. Only cost $7 for the trim, and of course now I have to make a trip to the fabric store to sew a cushion. What I wanted to do up top is a series of hooks and shelves ~ I'm taking the bar down.
So, any suggestions? I figured I would put a half shelf up pretty high for my nice basket (with new lining sewn). But what about spacing of hooks? Should I put them on the inside wall too?

Since I'm the only one who updates, I'll post this wonderful picture of my men.

Scotiabank Place, Hockey Fun!

A brown suede-lined tote bag.
The full effect.
Fleece baby blanket and doll blanket for a friend's shower & daughter. Question is - do I give the blankets to her in the bag? I'm kinda liking it so much it's hard to part with. I did buy a "Sisters" picture frame as well. Not everyone appreciates home-made stuff.
New couch pillows with amazing fabric, but I'm still getting the hang of stuffing a pillow. Can't quite seem to get the right amount.

Boring Post

I haven't taken any pictures lately. Nothing new around here really. Tyler took part in his first Spelling Bee, Owen got to play hockey at Eric & Keegan's rink last night, and Finn is still eating all day every day.
