Snow Snow, & More Snow


Saturday morning we woke up to a winter wonderland. It snowed a total of 20cm in one day, up to 30cm in some parts of the city. I love snow, but it just blew my mine how much actually fell! Just a couple shots of the craziness for you. Hendrix loves to watch out the front window, what a prince!  Happy Wednesday.

What else can I say other than, too cute! So happy I was able to spend the afternoon with these 2 cute cousins. I hope you enjoy these pics half as much as I enjoyed taking them!

Hendrix



I just love this dog. For those of you that don't know, this is my brother's pooch Hendrix. He is 3.5 years old and a prince! My sister-in-law, Michelle actually rescued him along with the rest of his litter who were abandoned. Her intention was to pick them up and bring them in to the local pet adoption clinic. By the time she had driven back to Edmonton (They were found outside of Rocky Mountain House) she had found a home for each and every one of them! Hendrix is a mix of many breeds including German Sheppard, Blue Heeler and they also think there is a bit of coyote in him as well. Seeing him as a puppy and knowing all the breeds he comes from, we all thought he would grow into a large dog. He didn’t though, he’s the perfect mid-size pooch! Natalie has grown very fond of her puppy and he of her. It’s always nerve racking to see how an animal will react to a baby, but he has been the perfect dog with all three of the kids. He will lay there and take the hair grabbing and eye poking all day long. He knows when he is annoyed to just get up and move elsewhere. This makes me, also my brother and Michelle very happy as it would have been very sad to see the dog go if he was aggressive. Anyways, that’s my story on my pup (I call him mine because I see him all the time anyways, and he loves me J). 

Happy Friday! Tonight I am heading over to Michelle’s for a girls night with some munchies, wine drinking and board games. Until next time…

Hair Day



Aside from the shadow on my chin, I think this is a pretty cute pic. Taken when I babysat the two of them last weekend.

Sassy



I just love this picture of Natalie as it captures how this little 2 year old is lately; Sassy. Not all the time, but she sure does have her moments. They are right when they say the "Terrible Twos"! Nat being the drama queen that she is, can turn it on in a snap. She has mastered the art of the fake cry and when she doesn't get what she wants she has no problem letting you know how she feels about it. Her newest thing whenever I tell her no, or someone else won't give in to her, is saying "I want MOMMY!". Don't get me wrong, it is definitely cute to witness! 
I just wanted to share this shot with you on this Holiday Monday. Happy Family day to you and yours! I will post more this week on my weekend spent with my family in Calgary.

Crafty Katie: Modge Podge

I saw this idea online one day and instantly fell in love. I just had to do some letters for my nieces. I ended up buying a "B" for Bella instead of an "I" for Isabella as the "I" looked really plain. I had a blast doing it, and it was super simple. I bought the letters from Walmart for $5 each, the Modge Podge was also available at Walmart but I grabbed it from Michaels craft store as I had a 40% off coupon. The scrapbook paper I already had tons of so I was all set to go. First I traced the letters and cut them out of the paper, then I put a layer of Modge Podge on the letter, then I placed the paper on top and threw on another coat of Modge Podge. Let it dry and voila! Simple and awesome craft idea. 
I showed them to Michelle who went out and bought an "R" for Rhodes and then 3 "Z"s so they had all the initials. I will have to grab a picture of the finished product next time I head over to their house. I hope you enjoyed this post - I am planning on doing more for my own place when I have a little extra craft money floating around.

Dinner Date: Twins Edition


It never gets old for me to go over to my brothers house and see the babes. When I go for a "quick visit" meaning to stay for only an hour or two, more often than not I end up spending my whole evening there. Time can't go slow when there are three kids - running/crawling/laughing/crying/screaming/talking/singing/peeing on the couch - around you. Those three munchkins are getting busier by the moment.
I was over there this afternoon to watch the twins while mama and Nat went out. I was looking at them and thinking about how much they have changed since the time they were born. It makes me sad knowing they won't be this small ever again, but it also makes me happy thinking about all the stages and happy memories to come.

Obsessing over… 
Online shopping - nothing in particular. I am so bad for looking all the time for things I "Need ;)". I'm pretty good for not actually buying anything though!

Working on…

Sociology homework, sounds like fun doesn't it ;)
Thinking about…
To hang more pictures on my wall, or not to hang more pictures on the wall. I keep tossing the thought back and forth as I am only renting and not sure if I want to stay where I am for much longer.
Anticipating…
Going on a date with Michelle to The Melting Pot soon- Dreaming about fondu.....
Listening to…
Amon Amarth
Eating…
Cheese Strings - I don't know why I love them so much, but I do. They were on sale the other day and my sister-in-law picked me 2 packs.
Wishing…
Wishing it was May so I can head to Viva Las Vegas with my baby sister for her 21st B-day!

Thrifting

So I headed out yesterday morning for my first time to go second-hand store shopping. I thought it went well as I did manage to score some good finds. I got lots of picture frames for cheap and a project for me to work on. A cute little dresser that I want to strip and paint/stain. I also found a Disney Princess step stool for my niece. I had a blast digging through all the random stuff shelf upon shelf, and look forward to going again!

Happy Saturday Morning!! I love my weekends that I don't have anything planned for. I have kept the weekend's schedule open so that I can putts around the house, do some chores, do some homework, etc. Today I am headed out thrifting (second-hand store shopping) with a gal pal from work. She is the queen of finding amazing treasures for cheap cheap cheap, so she's taking me long with her today! I am hoping to find some neat old picture frames. Hopefully it's a good day with some good finds so I can tell you about it!
A few blogs that I read daily have been posting these "Currently" posts. I thought I would join in on the fun: 




Obsessing over… 
My nieces and nephew! I just LOVE going to visit them after work and on weekends. They are growing so fast and getting funnier by the moment. 


Working on…
Crafting! I have recently re-grow my passion for being crafty and am digging it!
Thinking about…
Buying a new vehicle in the fall.
Anticipating…
Going thrifting with Sherry today!! First time ever - so pumped!
Listening to…
Iron Maiden
Eating…
A mixed berry smoothie that I just whipped up.
Wishing…
Wishing I had more money. Isn't that everyones wish?!

Princess Bed


Natalie has finally decided to be the big girl that she is and sleep in her toddler bed. Michelle has attempted this twice before, with no luck. But the other night I helped her take the crib apart and haul in the toddler princess bed. She loves it! Michelle said she only had to chase her back to bed twice, but then no problems after that. First thing she did when I went over after work today was take me upstairs to show me her bed. She told me to get in with her and cuddle under the blankies. Then she insisted I cuddle with her puppy, Elmo and "Winnie the Poop" as she likes to call him. She's such a doll!



Rhodes was a tad fussy, not wanting to be put down for too long. Bella was quite and content with crawling around the living room doing her thing! Michelle told me that Bella actually stood up today! She was on her hands and knees, leaning against a toy, and then pushed herself up to a standing position. They're getting so close to being like their sister - constantly running somewhere and spinning and dancing and jumping. It sure will be a busy house hold when the twins learn how to walk.
Happy Hump Day!
