Even Mittens needs to be well outfitted with all the rain we have had!

Have you seen this meerkat? His name is Looker, and he was lost on Tuesday.
Andromeda hasn't seen him either. At the moment she is busy powering up the Rangers, so she cannot go out and arrange a search party. If you happen to see Looker, please email and you will have a "sweet" reward. Eoghan misses him very much. Thank you to everyone who is at this minute organizing search parties of their own.

Mr. President

I've never seen George Washington depicted so sweetly.

 And the artist with Mrs. President. "Oh mama," he says to me, "she never sleeps on my bed". Mmmm, okay.

to find a tree



Last year we couldn't even think of going out for a tree, as the weather was incredibly bad, and we were just settling in to our new home. The snow was unimaginable for our location. We had to take out our fake tree, which I loath. But this year... a real tree! So beautiful, and it smells so good, plus the fun of going to pick one out. It was so cold out, but lovely.

In the city...

 While in the city, a trip to the Imaginarium is always a good time...


In this chair, the kids pull themselves up and when they let go they slowly come back down. However I told Jonas that he would plummet. What a bad mom!
 The bubble room is always a hit, for everyone.

At the dentist's

Just a cleaning, all his teeth look good.

The Nutcracker, part I

 The boys were able to see The Nutcracker for the first time, before their own upcoming performance in the ballet. I loved being able to look into the orchestra, and to see how the dancers performed to even the smallest chime that came from the triangle.

a sweet girl

When she is calm, she is quite a sweet girl. I know she is still a puppy, but my, she's so wild at times.

a bunny

Eoghan went hunting with mom, and his great uncles. This beautiful bunny was dinner for them.
