And It's Gone!!!!

My week off is over and I didn't accomplished a thing I had planned on doing!  Well, lots of baby cuddles which was pretty darn great!  But not a stitch was made, except to mend Son2s coat, no purging the storage space but I did put all my snowmen decor away so the house seems nice and empty and fresh.  Here's my current (boring) mantle:

So Son2 had some time off work and arrived Tuesday and left Saturday morning. He was able to meet his niece for the first time:


I had the gals here stitching on Wednesday night...it was my turn!


Friday it was this little girls birthday....she turned 5!


Also on Friday my Dad arrived....he had meetings in Calgary so before heading home to my place we visited his great granddaughter:


Saturday Daughter2 had a home game....they won but look at the difference in the shots!!  We should of had 50 goals!  It is a best of three series and our girls won again today so onto the next series!


Now today Dad went antiquing so I flew around the house and cleaned.  I had to get him to the airport by 6:30 and once I was home, relaxed and enjoyed the quiet, although it seemed a bit odd! Back to work tomorrow.........that week flew by so fast!  In a month we will get another 10 days off for Easter break!  I wonder if I will get anything done then? Hubby is home tomorrow so I know I won't get anything done this week either.

Here's a funny little picture my daughter sent of Lyla.....hahahahaha!

A Day In The Life....

Well, life is pretty routine......work, sleep, repeat!  Love getting baby pictures from my daughter daily but even better when I get baby snuggles!  Baby Lyla is being a bit cranky lately.  Daughter2 is introducing formula and I think the adjustment is causing some gas.  I hope it gets straightened out soon.  To help out (and win a Best Grandma award tee hee) I offered to watch the sweet girl for a few hours next week while I am off work....well, it was then suggested I have her for a sleepover!!!!  I remember our first born being a colicky baby....we lived in Calgary and my mom was 7 1/2 hours away so there was no relief for me.  I would have given anything to have a few hours of sleep...or at least quiet!!!  So I am going to brave this challenge!!!  How bad can it be??? Mommy is only a short 1 hour drive away and I'm a veteran at this!  You know a new mom is sleep deprived when she jokes that maybe I could adopt Lyla for a year and then they will take her back!  Hahaha!  But who could get upset with this face????




This last one as taken tonight after I worked my magic....although it didn't last too long!  Apparently she fell asleep soon after her and Mommy left for home.  :-)

Grandpa finally got to meet her this week.....I'd say he was a wee bit proud!


Next week is a break for us at the school.. Teachers still have convention and a PD day but we get the whole week off!  I plan on sewing, organizing/purging our storage space and getting in more baby cuddles!!!!!!! I'm really looking forward to the time off!  The weather has been amazing...I sure hope it stays!
