Curious Calder

I love being outside in our yard. After playing ball on Sunday, I couldn't think of a better way to spend the rest of Mother's day! We accomplished a lot - nothing exciting enough to post pictures of though! I just love the planning and anticipation.  Which perennials are going to come up? What flowers should I put in the front flower bed? What can I add to my garden? Where will I put the peas? LOVE IT!

Today's post is short, because roomy #1 is BACK!

I like the natural light, but the photo is grainy.

My brother, Luke, is spending tonight and Thursday night with us on his way and from some meetings for work in Edmonton. We have Luke's girlfriend, Brittany, to thank for this visit. She is out of town for the week, so Luke's go-to crash pad is unavailable!

Calder was so excited that Luke was going to be here this morning that he wouldn't stop talking about him.

 "Uncle Luke should stay up here in your bed."

"Oh, and Daddy and I should sleep downstairs?"

"No. All three of you can sleep up here."

"Where would we all go?"

"In your bed."

"I don't think Uncle Luke will want to sleep up here."


"Because it would be too smooshy for three of us in one bed."


"Because 3 people is too many for one bed."


"Because it would be crowded with that many people."


"Because Uncle Luke is huge."


"Because that's how God made him."


"It's time to brush your teeth."


  1. Love the conversation :)

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
