Lovely voice

I decided to post some of my 14 yr old daughter's music on Youtube. She has a beautiful voice, and even has a Christmas CD.

Click this link to hear a song from her Christmas CD, she recorded when she was 12

Then click this link to hear her singing a song she is learning from Phantom of the Opera

And here she is singing at church last week

I have been such a neglectful blogger. I find it so hard to keep up with it at times, and I have been just as neglectful keeping up with others. I need to put google reader back up, that would help me.

October has gone by so quickly. It's been a terrific month, with gorgeous weather. Thanksgiving weekend was amazing, with +20 temps. We took the kids to Wonderland on Sunday since the weather was so great. Monday was also warm, so I popped the turkey in the oven, and we went off to the pumpkin patch for our annual visit. We had fun in the patch, and in the corn maze. Here are some pics of our day.

Design team reveal

I had to work fast with this kit, as I was on holidays for most of July. I used Echo Park Sweet Summertime, and it was fun to use some of my holiday pictures with it. The last item I used something I have had for a while, it is a big wooden plaque divided into sections, and can be hung on the wall. I decided to use the first day of school pics from 2009. It isn't quite finished yet, but you get the idea.

Peggy's Cove pics

So after we left PEI, we went to Nova Scotia. My fav day was Peggy's Cove. Here are some pics. I just had to touch the ocean. This pic is Derek helping me up from the slippery rocks.

Here is where I put my foot in the ocean, but got more than I bargained for when a big wave came up and got me all the way up to my waist! You can see the surprised look on my face.

The family with the mist and waves all around us. Such a cool place!
My favourite family shot. This is still at Peggy's Cove, you can see the ocean behind us.

More vacation pics

Here are the kids having a blast at Chelton beach, Prince Edward Island. They loved the warm water of the Northumberland Strait.
This is a pic of them at Cavendish beach. This body of water is the Gulf of St Lawrence. freezing cold, but much calmer.

Here we are around a camp fire at the cottage we rented for the week in PEI

Vacation pics

We are back from our three week trip, we had an awesome time. I have a lot of pics to share, so I am going to put them in different posts. This is the beginning of our trip, Canada Day. Canada day is also our anniversary, this year was our 15th. Below is a pic of us near Parliament Hill.

This pic was taken on Sparks Street Mall. It sure was busy down there, the kids loved it!

And I like this pic of my dear sweet hubby.
Here is a four generation pic, myself, my five children, my mom and my grandmother. It was my grandmother's 80th birthday, so glad I was able to be there with her.

Friendzy Friday - Two Scrapbook Friends

It's that time of year, when we are planning our summer vacations, whether it be long trips or weekend getaways, or just keeping track of fun summer days. I love the idea of keeping a summer journal to store our pictures and memories. My family is going to the east coast for two weeks in July, so I bought this journal from Two Friends, I love how sturdy it is. I flipped it on it's side, and then I altered it using Fancy Pants 'Family' line. Fun and easy, and will hold our vacation memories for a lifetime!

Cassaundra was Mrs Potts in her elementary school production of Beauty and the Beast. She did a fabulous job. Below is her as the teapot. If you would like to hear her beautiful singing, click this link to see it on Youtube. Sorry not the best quality, as it was video taken from my point and shoot camera.

The kids were thrilled with all the changes in the kids area, all the new rides were fun. Here are some pictures of our fun day.
