Christmas Gift Guide

Family weekends




It was so nice to be home with the kids this week.  Don't get me wrong, I love the travel and the adventure but I'm such a homebody that I was craving my little piece of quiet out on the acreage with my kiddos.  It was the Family Day long weekend in Saskatchewan so we had a true family weekend.  Mom and Dad came up to spend time with the kids, we hosted the fam for Sunday night meal and we went out and had fun with the kids.  My favourite was going out to the movies with all the minions- we saw Lego Batman and I think everyone walked away with sore cheeks from all the laughing.  It was also a beautiful day and it made me happy to ditch my parka and wear this newfangled, fun asymmetrical hoodie provided by RoseGal.  It was like wearing a big blanket during the movies...why are movie theatres so chilly?





It has been one of those weird in between February breaks for the kids where it's so nice that the snow has almost all melted but you can't do anything outside because it's so messy.  Sadly there isn't skating or skiing anywhere, so the kids end up playing in the ditch in the last remaining snow pile making a very sad, very small and very melty snowmidget.  I have lost track of all the times I've had to vacuum up the dirt mess in the entry because mud.   We've actually spent most of the week over in Winnipeg while Dan worked and the weather here has been just as wonky...so wonky that we couldn't do most of the fun outdoor events they have for le Festival de Voyageur.  But we did get great visits in with the family- more on that next week.



For now, I shall be grateful instead, because it is a glorious feeling to just put on a bunnyhug (that's Saskatchewan talk for hoodie) and head out for the day.  I'll embrace the nice weather because I'm sure there'll be a crazy snow storm in March. Or May.  Or maybe even June.  And if that happens, I know what comfy pink hoodie I'll be reaching for- despite my husband calling me a pink Jedi.

Have a great weekend!
