Am I posting winter pictures in June? Uh, yes I am. I’ve been shooting events during the spring/summer and found these images left on my camera. I don’t miss the nasty cold but I do miss the winter sports. Yeah, I’m one of those Canadians who actually love the snow! LOL. Stellar had the privilege of taking snowboarding lessons for the first time this year…and yes, she absolutely loves it! This means we’ll be looking for more gear and lessons at the beginning of next winter. Lesson of the day: when winter gives you snow and ice, make it FUN!

jbcm4jbcm8jbcm2jbcm5jbcm12jbcm6 It was our family’s first trip to the distillery. T’was cooold yet sunny filled with Christmas cheer. We didn’t end up buying anything because things were on the high side. I almost caved into the local merry-go-round but held my ground thinking they can settle for a piggy back ride. We came away with 2 free giant kinder eggs and hot chocolate. In keeping with the spirit of Christmas, the best event was giving away our parking pass to another family on our way out.

jbfloor1jbfloor6jbfloor3jbfloor7 Gem is a natural born giggler. Most of the time, I want to bottle up those giggles to keep forever and ever. It doesn’t take that much for her to crack a smile, or make some sorta crazy face. She’s inherited my love of nonsense + silliness. But I on the other hand, bury it deep under the more dominant gene that says ‘things must be proper and organized.’ Gem is a daily reminder to play, dance and run free!!!

jbcups Stellar and Gem received a lot of amazing Christmas gifts this past year. We even baked special cookies for Santa…and our family and friends. They were SUPER excited to open all of the gifts as fast as they could. Their faces looked as if they just struck gold. The next day, I discovered them playing with cups..for hours. Sometimes, you just can’t beat the basics.

jbdoc Gem loves to play doctor. She sticks things in my ears, wraps my arms to check blood pressure, hits my knee to check reflex, listens to my heart go ba-bum, ba-bum. Oh…and instead of a lollipop, she offers me a mani-pedi. You can only expect the best from Dr. Gem.
