…and we’re back

What can I say.  No blog updates for 5 months – I didn’t mean for it to go that long but well, here we are.

So jumping right in …

January … um … it was very cold

February, fricken freezing

March … we took a  cruise around the Caribbean to warm up a bit …

And Stephan and I spent a couple of days in Miami …

April brought Easter and Naomi’s end-of-year skating show – she was very excited to appear in the local newspaper …


May brought the beginning of the baseball season for Francis and Stephan (yes, he’s the coach …) and it was Naomi’s ballet recital …

and now on to June … only two weeks left of school and so many more adventures to come!

a new year


It’s hard to believe that I haven’t written anything since August.  It’s not that nothing has been going on, I’ve just been busy.  My readership is low and I was wondering if I should even continue this blog.  I do like to go back and read some of the older entries so I decided that I would continue for now.  My plan is to have this blog printed into books that I can give to the kids as a keepsake.  I know that a few other bloggy friends have done this.

Ok, so here is a quick catch-up from the past few months:

  • In November I was made permanent at my job
  • I’ve gained  10 lbs from our amazing cafeteria
  • Francis made the Pee-wee AA hockey team
  • Hs team is terrible and have only won 2 games
  • I didn’t pass out when I saw Francis’ report card
  • Francis went to his first high school dance
  • Naomi performed her first skating solo
  • Naomi had her 7th birthday party at an art studio
  • She has lost 3 teeth (bottom) so far
  • For Halloween Naomi was a Monster high doll (Cleo de Nile) and Francis was a banana
  • We renovated the 2 upstairs bathrooms and replaced the upstairs hall carpet (finally)
  • I learned that I can fit a hockey goalie bag in my Fiat
  • Stephan turned 42 (he’s getting old) :o)
  • He continues to play hockey several times a week but spent a few weeks on the injured list for a cracked rib

Well, that’s all I can think of for now.  I will do a holiday review and post some pictures soon so stay tuned!

Happy New Year everyone!
