After Sunday conference, Sarah and Andrew and we had a chance to visit with Laurie and Tom before they had to head back to Edmonton.
Zandyn, Theo, Julien, Isabae, Rae, and Milan.


Stake Conference, Saturday evening.
We ended up spending the last half hour in the Relief Society room.   
Milan singing memorized children's songs like Twinkle Little Star and 10 Little Monkeys out of a church hymn book.


Another favourite photo taken off of Facebook that is now on our fridge :)


Afternoon activity: drawing and colouring, and then stickers on eggs.
Milan is starting to need a lot more at home than just her regular toys and books (and occasional t.v. programs).  I now have to remind myself to keep empty toilet paper rolls and empty egg cartons, look out for any kind of kiddie craft sales, and start making use of my "For The Kids" board on Pinterest.  

Julien continues on with his developing curiosity and adventurous self.  He'll play along with us for as long as he can stand, then he'll independently move onto his favourite books, toys and stuffed animals, and maybe climb onto some furniture to look out the windows, and probably sing bits of The Itsy Bitsy Spider song (but loves it more when we sing along with or to him).  He's also come up with his own baby talk where he happily yells and babbles sentences to us, which include gentle and perfect intonations, but can also have English words and signs (finally!) such as 'night 'night, milk, dog, eat, and airplane.

They both seem so little but are growing up so fast.


A pretty cute picture.
(Poor sicky Milan but she still had fun)
Ezra's birthday party.


Norm's Grad Bash.



Mookey and Daisy.


The Black Keys live at the MTS Centre.


A collection of Mother's Day tulips that were sent home to me after church from various people as well as a few that were given to me later in the evening:
(From Lola, James, Kayla Abbott, and Oma ♥)


"Free Day"
Or not.

We found these sitting unattended on our street and happily walked them home.  When we reached the front of our house, we heard two children running after us and one of them was yelling, "Excuse me!  That's out for our lemonade stand and the duck belongs to my brother!"  So we offered to help bring them back.

Just another one of the many recent signs to stop looking for furniture of any kind for our home. 
Meryelle's wedding day.


Abby's 3rd birthday party.


Norman's grad dance.

Dinner in the Exchange District at Mondragon.  
James distracting Milan with a marker and a few napkins as we wait for our food.


Julien's new thing: climbing on the table.


Playdough moustache!
