Treasure Trove - April 30th

Today I was planning to have my treasure not be our kids or our house for the sake of variety but then Jael decided to change my mind. Jael cuddled with me this morning, which is something she basically never does. And incase that was not enough she then signed 'more' for the first time just to make sure she got on here. Sweet Jael is my treasure today.

Treasure Trove - April 29th

As you may have gathered I like babies. I enjoy gatherings of babies and watching them interact while chatting and hanging out with other mommas. One such babyfest was my treasure today.

Today our friend Christina came over for a great game of Settlers of Catan, it was a great time. I love that game. One might say I treasure it.

Treasure Trove - April 27th

Both my girls are learning new tricks every day and Kaylyn's newest favourite is sitting up on her knees and looking out the windows. When my Mom arrived today with my brothers and Grandma she was watching out the window and it was so sweet, it was my treasure for today.

Treasure Tro ve - April 26th

I was out late last night and did not get a chance to post my treasure. It was a busy day, lots of great company and good food and and cute babies and planning camp. Great friends were my treasure yesterday!

Treasure Trove - April 25th

Spring is finally arriving! I love sunshine and I am loving watching buds come up around our house, it is very exciting and surprising because we did not plant any of it but there it is! My treasure today is the flowers blooming outside.

Treasure Trove - April 24th

I decided to post my treasure from yesterday, watch later today for today's treasure!

Yesterday we came home from our little vacation and the sun was shining on a beautiful Easter afternoon! We went to the park with the girls to play in the swings but one of them was taken treasure yesterday was sharing.

Treasure Trove - April 19th

The hardwood floor is moving along beautifully, the first (and largest) room is practically finished and my treasure today was working with Mike on it. I like feeling like a handywoman, working the saw, seeing everything come together and working with Mike. Sometimes the girls try to help too, they are handybabies.

Treasure Trove - April 18th

Since the girls were born Mike and I have gone on three real dates, we have gone out without the girls apart from these times but most of those trips were looking at houses so they don't count as dates. Tonite was one of those three dates and it has been lovely. We went to Crossiron Mills and then came home for tea, I forgot my camera on our way out the door so these pictures are from at home. Today, without a doubt, my treasure is my date with Mike.

Mike won a ipod, I am really excited about using it and putting some pictures on it, I think it will come in handy. Excitment / winning things = treasure.

Treasure Trove - April 15th

I think I have the most amazing siblings ever. Today my younger brothers both came over to hang out with the girls and help me out. Elias is beginning to take an interest in baking and I could not be happier as every time he comes over he tries out something and leaves me delicious treats, I loved baked goods! Thanks for all your help today guys, thanks for playing with the girls, they like you and thanks for the brownies! Your visit is my treasure today!

Treasure Trove - April 14th

Today Glynis came over for a sewing day, during which we have not sewn. We did however look through a couple boxes of fabric that our Aunt gave us awhile back. In these boxes we found a gem: vegetable and fruit fabric, we proceeded to create a quilt pattern to use these amazing fabrics and I have now cut the blocks. I am extremely excited about this quilt. Great fabric that was given to us is my treasure today.

Another Win

I used to think I didn't win anything but I guess I just hadn't entered any contests for cloth diapers. I won another one! This time from Calgary Cloth Diaper Depot, a new place to get cloth diapers in Calgary. If you become their fan on facebook you can win too! But watch out, I am a fan too so I might just win every time.

The new diaper is a Bambino Bums Onesize Pocket Diaper in red, because who does not want a bright red diaper? Since moving my girls have been in disposables, I think we will start up again on cloth when the reno is done and we are fully moved in. Until then my garbage bin fills up and my box of diapers empties way too fast. One bonus to being is disposables is that they have been sick this past week and lets just say diaper changes have not been pretty.

Here's looking forward to trying out the new diaper and getting back into cloth!

Treasure Trove - April 13th

Last night Mike and I picked out paint for our room. Since I could not come to Rona with him because it was supper time for the girls he went and got a few paint chips for us to look at, and by a few I mean a lot. It was fun to lay them all out on the floor and have our own little paint store. After we finally made up our minds we preped the walls for painting. Spending time with him and choosing paint was my treasure for today. I like Mike and I like paint.

Treasure Trove - April 12th

Today was sunny and glad looking outside! As opposed to yesterday's deceiving sunshine with bitter wind it was lovely weather today for a walk, so walk we did. Today my treasure is getting outside in the sun. (Summer you can not come too soon.)

Treasure Trove - April 11th

Since Jael got her own the other day I figured it is Kaylyn's turn.

Over the last couple weeks it has been so fascinationg to watch Kaylyn learn to crawl. Many things the girls learn to do seem to come on slowly but every day I have seen her get better at crawling. A week ago she was scooting herself across the hardwood on her belly and now she is crawling all over the place and enjoying the new freedom. I think she has always wanted to move and now she can!

Here's to learning new things, here's to Kaylyn motoring around: my treasure today is watching her.

Treasure Trove - April 10th

When Mike and I went to Mexico I assumed that the hotel would have conditioner. I was wrong. So when we went into a nearby town a few days into our stay we went to a store called 'Mega' and I was very excited to finally have conditioner. When we came home I went back to using my old stuff but when we moved last week it was the first stuff I found so now it sits there and reminds me of sunny days and beaches. I like it. I don't think I am the type of person who would usually say this but today my treasure is my conditioner :)

Treasure Trove - April 9th

Today I spent almost all my time away from home, but I am still sneaking this in on the right day!

We recently bought a house and we are removing the old carpet from upstairs and replacing it with hardwood. As with most renos the job seems to be getting more involved as we go along, there was particle board on the subfloor which had to be ripped up and replced with plywood. Today the plywood is all down and we are now ready for hardwood. We would not be able to get so much done without a bunch of help so you are all my treasure today! Dad, Mom, Tyler, Josh...Thank-you!

Treasure Trove - April 8th, 2011

I don't often spend time with only one of my girls because there are two of them and they are on pretty close schedules. However, both of them have not been feeling well this week and it is making Kaylyn have longer than usual naps while Jael is still taking regular naps. Both today and yesterday I have spent a couple hours with Jael playing in the sunshine and eating cheerios. Instead of being annoyed that they are not both sleeping together I want to treasure the time I get to spend with either of them so today my treasure is my time with Jael.

If you are not a mother you won't quite understand. If you are a mother it requires no explanation.
Today my treasure is some good 'ol shower therapy.

Treasure Trove - April 6th, 2011

One of the blogs that I frequently visit is Ryckman Photography, twice a year she has a series she calls Ordinary to Extraordinary. Everyday for a month she finds some treasure in the ordinary and posts about it, with pictures of course. I have followed all the last three times she has done this with the last one just ending a few days ago. I was inspired to find my own treasure and post about it for a month, at the end I can look back and see the whole treasure trove. God has blessed me so much and I am so thankful to Him for filling my life with treasure.

Today my girls are 9 months old! It is so amazing to watch them grow and learn.Since the day they were born they have brought us so much joy, they are my treasure today and everyday. From sleepless nights with two tiny babies to finger food and learning to crawl life with them is always an adventure. I love them to bits.
