B showing off a "goatee" from a hunk of some kind of animal hair, during her class field trip to Last Mountain House!

Two goof balls being silly while waiting for New Beginnings to start. It's great seeing these two being best friends, just like their mothers were at their age :)

A freckle-faced little "elf" surprised me by straightening up my tray in the bathroom, and even left a little heart! How sweet!

B was my best helper, tonight, by dropping all of the dumplings into the dumpling soup for dinner. She learned a new skill, and I got to sit back and relax. I love compromise!

I had to photograph some of my homemade spring rolls for my post on HowDoesShe, so why not enjoy some afterward? I love being efficient :)

A gorgeous Saturday, like today, is perfect for getting in some family skate time!

February 22, 2013

Our date night consisted of checking out a brand new frozen yogurt place near by. We loved trying out the plethora of toppings - oooh, boy - trouble for this girl on a diet!

February 21, 2013

Lots of fun at the yearly "Family Fun Night" at the girls' school. Lots of games, food, face painting, and fun to be had!

February 20, 2013

Chilly temperatures have the frost making it's way inside our windows!

 Time for these gals to get our new glasses! So swanky!

February 18, 2013

Family day 2013! Lots of fun at Chuck E Cheese, purchasing two new baby bunnies, swimming at the YMCA, then a movie night at home with a Frozen Yogurt treat! We enjoyed every single second :)

A quiet Sunday evening together!

February 16, 2013

An unusually warm February day is perfect for getting in some outside play time - especially when there are scented bubbles involved!

Get a workout in, while working? BRILLIANT!  Lyndon's work is testing these treadmill desks out, and he enjoyed it. Maybe it's the wave of the future?!

February 14, 2013

This Valentine's Day was all about the goodies! First, we woke up to a surprise of HUGE red velvet cupcakes (Lyndon bought one for each of his ladies), then I met Lyndon at our favorite Chinese buffet  for lunch (amazing), and I finished off the day by making red velvet crepes with mascarpone cream filling and chocolate ganache for dinner. A full tummy, and a full heart!

B was outside, bright and early, scraping and brushing the snow off the van for me. Little did she know, it was a nice enough day that they would be walking to school, and I wouldn't be using the van. It was a nice gesture all the same :)

I took some time to pop by and watch BB at her swimming lessons. She is also quite at home in the water. It was fun to see her swim on her front, on her back, and to jump into the water without any modicum of fear. We've got another awesome swimmer on our hands!

February 11, 2013

Time to test out the new oven by baking 3.5 dozen cookies AT THE SAME TIME. Having four trays of cookies, baking in just 7 minutes TOTAL was such a revelation. They turned out even and beautiful. LOVE MY OVEN!

February 10, 2013

A very happy Chinese New Year!! It is the year of the snake, which means it will definitely be Lyndon's year! Here's to a year filled with lots of good things for that man of mine!

JJ loves to dress up in all kinds of different things. She gets in a mood and just goes with it. Today, she was a cowgirl, so it was only fitting that we served cow"grill" cheese sandwiches!

February 8, 2013

It's a great day in the Grunewald household! We said a fond "goodbye" to our old, ancient oven and said "Hello" to a brand new, smooth top, convection oven! Hallelujah!!

February 7, 2013

A night of hilaroty ensues when these young women get together for a night of improv. I was so impressed by TJ's quick wit. She is so funny. I was also impressed that she invited her school friend, J, to come along. What a great example!

February 6, 2013

JJ has been taking swimming lessons through school and she is very at home in the water. It was great seeing her confidence as she swam all over the YMCA pool! Our little mermaid!

After suffering from extremely sore feet during (and after) my workouts, we splurged on a new pair of FABULOUS running shoes. The best part was, they were 40% off because Sportmart is closing. BONUS!

February 4, 2103

Today we said the official "goodbye" to the Canadian penny! Buh-bye little bit of coppery goodness. I can't say I'll miss you :)

A beautiful (and chilly) winter prairie sunset in Saskatchewan!

February 2, 2013

Welcome, little Penelope! You may never know how much B scrimped and saved to add you to our family, which is huge for that child. She loves you, and so do we. Welcome to the family!

February 1, 2013

A happy 36 to my main squeeze! He got the day off work so he spent the day helping me with a photoshoot, running errands, and having fun together. In this photo, he was making a little girl (whom I was photographing) smile. I love this guy!!
