Look at this sweet Strawberry Shortcake book I found in the library discards! Are you feeling like winter will never end? We'll see what the groundhog says in a few days. We've been lucky so far we haven't had a ton of snow to shovel. One of these days I shall have to do a post with some pics of my youngest daughter's first birthday last year - did a Strawberry Shortcake theme.

I found this adorable Christmas book from 1950 at our local recycling and used items centre. Little angels Pigtails, Crewcut, and Touslehead argue over who has polished his or her star the shiniest. Touslehead has given up hope of his star ever shining until he realizes that it is the Christmas Star that has helped the Wise Men find baby Jesus. There is even a children's musical based on this book. Christmas is coming quickly and my 3 little girls are looking forward to it. Although I think they would like for there to be snow, which we have only had a dusting of so far. My 9 year old has a small solo part in her children's choir performance this weekend so we are looking forward to that.

Happy almost Halloween! Isn't Gus the Ghost adorable? This year my 9 year old is dressing up as Astrid from How to Train Your Dragon, my 4 year old will be Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony, and my almost 2 year old will be a pink puppy. Nice to have Halloween on a Saturday this year. Hopefully our weather will be better than last year's icy rain. What are your kids going as this year?

My blog is 3 years old this month! I did a lot more blog posts in the first year of blogging and I hope I can start to blog a little more often than I have this year so far! Almost all of my blog posts have been about books that I own, but this one is not. I found this Little Golden Boom of Bedknobs and Broomsticks at a children's indoor play centre a few months ago. It was in a basket in their reading area, and hopefully I did not weird anyone out as I sat there taking pictures of the book! I love the movie Bedknobs and Broomsticks and watched it with my oldest daughter for the first time a few months back. Anyone else like Disney movies that are a little more obscure?

My daughters have never really been into dolls that much. These days they play with stuffed animals , My Little Ponies, Lego, Playmobil, etc. Tegan just turned 4 and had her Lightning McQueen themed party . Why do they only market that to boys, by the way?? So annoying ! Tegan is also drawing (scribbling) and doing stickers like crazy these days. Keira , age 8, is busy with reading (lots of the How to Train Your Dragon series lately ), Minecraft, and practising violin. And Brielle , my 1 year old? Well she basically makes messes all day long ! It's Victoria Day weekend here in Canada and I'm hoping the fireworks don't wake any of my 3 kids up!
