LONGEST WINTER EVER.
But. You know what’s exciting? Today is the very first Friday of Spring. Yes, it’s going to snow several more times before the beginning of May. We may even have another storm big enough to cancel school. But you know what? The days march forward. The calendar does not lie. We’re headed in the direction of warm weather, sunshine, budding trees, chirping birds, mud puddles, and trips back to the abandoned play grounds.
And that is enough to make me happy right now. That, and looking at pictures of spring from years gone by. I can’t believe how much my kiddos are growing from year to year – which reminds me that I need to start hitting up stores for spring & summer clothes for them. I’ve been doing my spring cleaning, and as I take out clothes that are too small, their drawers are getting more and more empty. Time to go shopping!
I like to dress my kids up. In this day and age where super cute clothes are so available and so very reasonably priced, there’s just really no excuse!

I’m loving that Dazzling Blue is a ‘hot’ colour this spring, because it’s one that I’ve always liked and never stopped using – but it means that it’s a lot more available in stores now! I will be honest, though – I care more about the prices of clothes than the colours and styles – and when you have a choice of several gorgeous Easter dresses at Sears for $14.99? Yes please! That’s somewhere I’m going to shop! Sears Days are happening right now from March 20-April 6 – they have some incredible sales on right now (those Easter dresses for $14.99!!) – head online or in stores to check out their selection!

We had Hendrik’s picture taken at the Sears Portrait Studio in Limeridge Mall for Christmas when he was 10 months old (the only time we’ve ever been organized enough to get Christmas Pictures taken!), and we were thrilled with the result. For a wiggly, grumpy baby, we ended up with a pretty fantastic photo:
