    Photography I mentioned in a recent ThrowbackThursday and I want to make sure we have lots of family photos for Missy Moo to see when she s older I can easily admit that it s not always easy to accomplish quickly On Wednesday we attended the Royal St John s Regatta the oldest continuous sporting event in North America It s a holiday that is weather dependent and will shut down businesses in St John s based on the judgement call of the Regatta s organizing committee which consists of volunteers no less It s definitely a unique situation to say the least You can wake up on Regatta Day and even if there isn t a cloud in the sky if it s very windy that s not going to work for the rowing races so the committee will have to delay it until the next day again weather permitting You could also wake up to a morning with lots of overcast and light rain but if the winds are good and the rest of the day s forecast seems ideal then the city will likely shut down for the day Anyway since this was the first Regatta for little miss we wanted to make sure a few photos were taken I attempted to take some selfies of Matt Missy Moo and I and there were mixed results I imagine that little miss had some interesting thoughts going on in her head as we tried to have her cooperate Here s what happened Continue reading Throwback Thursday Family Photos Posted on August 1 2013 Posted in 2013 Family Nostalgic Parenting Photography Throwback Thursday Family photos They re something I ve always enjoyed looking at My parents have some old albums and I m able to see lots of great things from before I was born to events I remember when I was little Matt with his parents and sister It s funny because both Matt and I have seen lots of childhood photos from our families especially when we were tracking down photos for our wedding slideshow But one thing we both found is that there aren t a lot of photos where all four of our immediate family members are in the same photo I feel like things have gotten worse now with the advances of technology Often times both parents will now have a smartphone and it s easy for one to say Hey take a photo or they take the initiative and snap a photo of their child children which may also include a mom or dad in the photo Continue reading I want to read about I want to read about Select Category 2009 1 2010 12 2011 21 2012 34 2013 76 2014 11 2015 9 2016 1 Aikido 1 Baby 52 Birthday 6 blog 12 Bobble head Ted 1 books 8 Bull Pond 3 Canada Day 5 Cascade 220 2 CCME 1 Comics Images 4 communication 6 Dilbert 5 Dreams 1 email fail

  • VirginiaMiddleton.ca | Mommy Musing – Halloweening with teal
    year sometime after Christmas we would find a small bucket or witches cauldron of candy that was abandoned in a corner of my room and was in desperate need of being thrown out Our local Costco has been carrying large packs of mini Play Doh that are intended to be given out at Halloween I saw it a few years ago and immediately bought a bag I absolutely love this idea One year we just handed out a few at a time and for other years we ve put together little treat bags with Play Doh and candy of some sort usually something that s peanut free Something else that I ve heard more about over the recent years is the idea of having a teal painted pumpkin on your doorstep In most cases it may be part of the Teal Pumpkin Project which is an initiative to help let parents and children know that non food treats are available at a home With so many allergies affecting kids I can only imagine how stressful Halloween can be for parents of children and teens with severe allergies In some cases just coming in contact with something that has been near an allergen could be enough to put a little one into the hospital or worse So this year we re just going to give out Play Doh Even if we have bigger kids teens come by the house they can enjoy what we re giving out or decline the treat In the past we ve gotten squeals of joy and lots of Play Doh Cool from more than one trick or treater that is definitely past their tweens We went to Michael s this morning and bought a white pumpkin because they were on sale We also picked up some teal coloured spray paint Matt has something we can use to seal the colour once it s been coated to my satisfaction Our white pumpkin with some duct tape to cover the stem so that it remains black The formerly white pumpkin now looking very different after a couple of coats in spray paint I ll post a photo of our teal pumpkin once the final product is ready It needs a couple more coats and then we ll seal the paint so that we do not have a horrifying mess if it rains on Halloween Share this Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Pinterest Google Email Like this Like Loading Mommy Musing pillow talk MMXVI What s on the go Leave a Reply What do you think Join the conversation Cancel reply I want to read about I want to read about Select Category 2009 1 2010 12 2011 21 2012 34 2013 76 2014 11 2015 9 2016 1 Aikido 1 Baby 52 Birthday 6 blog 12 Bobble head Ted 1 books 8 Bull Pond 3 Canada Day 5 Cascade 220 2 CCME 1 Comics Images 4 communication 6 Dilbert 5 Dreams 1 email fail 3 Facebook 10 Family 41 Food
