10 on Tuesday

1. Bet you didn't know we were famous! Last week we had the chance to go to the zoo and see the new penguin exhibit courtesy of Kids up Front. Kids up Front was being spotlighted by Shaw TV, and contacted Student Family Housing for a family that would be willing to be on TV. We got to be that family. Our segment was on the Shaw TV community channel, but is now also posted on  Youtube so the whole world can see!


2.  Kaden was invested into cubs on Wednesday. A bit of a gong show since our ward cub leader has been sick, and the uniforms are still not available. But we decided to go ahead and do it anyway. You could tell Kaden was nervous, but he was excited to get his badges.

3. I have decided that we either need to change Daylight Savings time to Friday so that kids have two days to adjust before school on Monday, or completely do away with it all together. My kids (especially Maggie) are so tired and grumpy!

4. Sean is home! He finished up in Banff, and is doing his next rotation in Pediatric Emergency - which is handy because we can see the Children's hospital from our back window. It's good to have him home and close by :-)

5. I'm singing a duet at our Relief Society's 17th of March party on Thursday. And I'm getting nervous.

6. Last night we were playing Settlers of Catan with Kaden and Anise. Kaden was trying to strike a deal with Sean, and was trying to say "Wood is really popular" but it came out "Wood is really poplar" Hahaha!

7. Maggie loves going outside. Even if it's snowing with 70KM/H wind gusts, as she proved this afternoon

8. I'm going through a bit of a I want to bake spree. I find recipe's I want to try, but often change my mind before I get started because I head into the kitchen and suddenly baking doesn't seem like so much fun :-(

9. Today is my Grandma Frache's 82nd Birthday. She's the one who taught me how to bake, how to quilt and attempted to teach me how to crochet. I wish I was in Lethbridge to give her a hug, but a phone call had to suffice this time. I LOVE YOU GRANDMA!

10. I would really like a laptop that works consistently...too bad my birthday is still 6 months away.
