Family Day

Ontario created a new holiday called Family Day a few years ago. It's basically a fake holiday...an excuse to have a day off in mid-February. While living in the US, I loved having the Christmas/New Years break, followed by Martin Luther King Day in January and then Presidents Day in February. It made the winter months just a little bit easier to get through. Anyways, I'm not complaining about this new fake holiday! I think it's great :) It's also nice to have Jenn home for a long weekend. 

This weekend we finally picked out the paint colours for the girls' room - light green with some purple. Jenn has some other creative ideas for the walls. Once decisions have been made and painting has commenced, I'll post some pictures. 

Yesterday we also met up with Allison and Jen who have an adorable 6-week old baby named Oliver. Allison has a blog as well - http://2momstobe.blogspot.com/. We had a great time getting to them and their very well-behaved little boy. He barely made a peep for the entire 2 hours we spent at Te Aro in Leslieville. I'm hoping that our girls will follow Oliver's lead when they arrive! Allison also made(!) our babies two adorable toques (Canadian-speak for hat). I'm very impressed by her crocheting skills!

We then came home to a present in the mail from my friend Lauren:

We already have two very lucky little girls! Thank you so much Allison and Lauren!

  1. It was great to meet you guys! I'm glad you like the hats. Hopefully your girls will get some use out of them. We're looking forward to seeing you again soon.
