Saturday morning before breakfast and getting ready, we got the kids dressed for outside and took some pictures in the freshly fallen snow that's perfect for snowman making. Passing neighbours offered to take a few photos so we were able to get a candid one with all 4 of us as well.
1. A cool piece of furniture for our record player and cd's has now become a practically empty shelf and a new spot for the kids to climb up on.
2. A hand-me-down knitted sweater, gifted tiered skirt by Joe, pink tights by Joe, and gifted winter boots by Joe. A few of my favourite pieces in Milan's closet. Note: she has been wearing that skirt (size 1) for almost two years now.
3. Julien's new favourite spot. He can sit there and be entertained for hours as Milan plays around him.
tUnE-yArDs concert at the West End Cultural Centre. Whoa. Talented. One of my favourite shows to date (Lenny Kravitz's being the other). I especially loved the intimate venue and down-to-earth performances. She even incorporated the audience's cheering into her looping.
A couple of unexpected highlights:
A guy yelling to his friend, "How does it sound so GOOD?" in the middle of a simple, one stick drum intro, which made everyone laugh including Merrill Garbus.
The Winnipeg Whollop, which is the name she gave the encore cheering followed by synchronized stomping that gradually picked up speed until the band came out for one more song.
This was taken at the second annual Mike Keane Celebrity Hockey Classic. The guys got to play with hockey celeb, Dave Manson. It was a lot of fun and for a good cause. I was able to watch all three of their games. It was fun to watch James play after a two and a half year hiatus.
