Spring break

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

It's beginning to look a lot like spring around here! Snow is almost all gone. It was raining last night (I just love hearing the sound of rain fall on our roof as I fall asleep). Above 0°c temperatures. You can see a little bit of green appearing among the brown, dry grass. Cheer!! It just feels so damn good that we can go out the door without having to dress as if we were going to explore the Artic. And this make me happy as well,

I bought a small window sill herb kit consisting of basil and cilantro and they are growing, and growing! Every time I'm in the kitchen I can smell them. Such wonderful smells. I can't wait to plant my garden outside now.

Tomorrow we're heading down to Edmonton for Easter and spring break. Hurray! Family, friends, shopping, and restaurant. Always such a treat.

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter and a fun filled spring break!!

Scrapbook, birthday, family.

I could definitely use more weekends like the one I just had.

Thursday, my brother came to visit for the weekend. The boys of course were super excited and happy to have their uncle around.

Friday, Darcy had the day off meaning more help around the house and a yummy homemade pizza dinner made by him! Not having to cook dinner is always such a treat.

Friday evening, I attended this fantastic scrapbooking class taught by Rebecca. She has all these wonderful scrapbooking layouts and ideas. I learned to use different tools and techniques I've never seen or done before. It was so much fun. Also, I won the door prize which definitely made my day. A big basket full of scrapbooking stuff! Woot woot!!

Saturday, Lucius' birthday. He is officially 4 years old. Wow, where does the time go.

Saturday morning, my parents came for Lucius' birthday and to stay for the weekend. Presents galore of course and not just for the birthday boy. For both, Lucius and Aymeric. Are they ever spoiled by their grandparents.

So it's now Sunday afternoon, my parents and my brother left, cake and turkey half gone, a bit of cleaning, boys playing with their gifts. It was sure a busy and wonderful weekend.

Happy 4 cake face boy!

Triangular Easter Envelopes

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Oooo, yay, another printable! A funky triangular shaped envelope for whatever Easter surprises you would like to fill them with. There are two different designs. The first one I call him Mr. Blunny, blue + bunny, and the second is Mr. Cracky. Yes, I just thought of the names right now and yes, they are quite lame.

Download the printable here.

I printed them on regular white 8.5 x 11 paper. Make sure you set your printer to fit to printable area. Cut the two envelopes out along the outer lines.

Fold and unfold all the 3 tabs shown with the arrows. Make sure you fold them towards the wrong side of the envelope.

Find the two small lines that are labeled "Fold Line" or as shown with the arrows. Fold down that line to fold the envelope in half.

Place glue on the side and bottom tabs as shown. Press and hold the tabs down and let dry.

Give the edges a squish to pop it open. Place some glue on the last tab.

Fill it with an awesome Easter surprise. Press and hold the final tab to glue the envelope shut.

Voila! Enjoy!

Feeling the groove

Tuesday, March 2, 2010

Getting back into the groove of things. Trying to anyways.

Last week a few of us had the nasty stomach flu. Thankfully it wasn't as bad as last years and didn't last as long.

The winter Olympics are finally over. Did you catch the suspense filled gold medal hockey game? I was literally on the edge of my seat. What a game!

It is absolutely gorgeous outside. 5c today with a bright sun. Thing are melting and we finally see grass again. Hurray!

Thought I would take some random pictures today. These caught my eyes.
