Babies and Astronauts!

Hello all! I’m back from a quick overnight trip to Ottawa. We went to visit my new baby great-niece (yikes, that kinda made me feel old, writing that!) She is adorable!

A crazy Canadian winter!

I thought I’d share a few pictures of the crazy amount of snow we’ve had around here. And there’s some pretty cute pics of my kids too! The second one is a picture of the snowbank piled this high along the entire length of our street just from plowing the street! Yikes! We have not had this much snow since 1972!! Montreal is on the verge of breaking the record!
