DAY 53 & 54

Day 53

These are all old dishes and a soup terrine I never use. So, they are now looking for a new home where they can be useful. My DH made me a new cabinet to store my drink glasses & dishes - lucky girl, right! - and there isn't any place for this old china.

Day 54

Not only did my DH make me a new cabinet for my China, he also made me a gorgeous new desk for my computer and stuff... I'm no longer looking at the inside of a closet when I scrap (my computer was hidden in an old cabinet, in our dining room!) I'm not showing it all right now, because he still needs to put some doors and I need to go shopping for a new lamp and chair. I'll take a pic when it's all done! I know, I'm a lucky girl!!!

DAY 52 Ice cream

I couldn't just post one photo today. We had our first ice cream in months and I just had to take some pics of my girls eating theirs. I normally don't buy ice cream in the winter (only on special occasions) but today at the store, I just had too! They looked so yummy and it was like bringing a little summer into our home.

DAY 51 Blues & Jazz

Our cd's have been hidden in a closet for years. Since today they are proudly showing on a new shelf my DH made. This is just a little peek into his and the girls collection. I found it funny to see my girls kid music next to blues and jazz cd's but that's maybe funny just to me... anyway, this is my photo for today!

DAY 50 Then & Now

Maybe some of you remember this photo, I used it in a Then & Now LO I made back in 2007. It still is one of my favorites pics of my girls, just love their sweet smiles.

DAY 39 - 48 Oops!

That's all I can say, really: Oops! I'm so sorry I didn't post for ... how long? 9 days!!!!OMG!!!
Oh, well here a few photo's from last week:

Day 39 - Feb 8
My girls had their birthday party. No big cakes but lots and lots of friends around. Over 30 kids! I took a lot of pics but for some reason all the kids have the most beautiful RED eyes, even my girls who never had red eyes in the past. Don't know what happened.
Well, my candy bags were a big success! Oh, and if you are wondering about the above pic : we were celebrating L's 7th birthday and A's 9th birthday.
Day 40 - FEB 9

L is trying to open some of the birthday presents her friends gave her. If she could, she would have open them all together, she was so excited about all those new toys.

Day 41 FEB 10

L again! Love this pic of her ... love it when her hair isn't in a ponytail.

Day 42 - Feb 11 FAMILY DAY
February 11th, 2001 was the day we met, the day we hold our baby A in our arms for the first time. I can't believe how fast time goes. Look at my baby now!

The past years we went out for dinner to celebrate but this year we had the girls birthday party and dinner a few days earlier, so we didn't go out this time. Instead we rented a movie, made some popcorn, grabbed their new little furry friends and watched the movie together. We all enjoyed it!

Day 43 - Feb 12
Tomorrow we are going to a Carnival party at my girls school. This is a part of my outfit: a cowgirl hat...
Day 44 - Feb 13 Carnival
Not easy to see it but on the right you can see A dancing. She danced all evening with her friends. She had an incredible time and I just enjoyed seeing her having fun like this!

Day 45 - Feb 14 L's birthday, 7 years old!

First present: from grandma! It's the beginning of a great day......

DAY 46 Feb 15

OK, this was taken yesterday but I really like this photo so I thought, what the ... I want to share it!
DAY 47 Feb 16 Pizza day
Pizza day today! Of course, Fu had his share too!
OK today is the last day of Fu's wild and out of control hairdo! He has an appointment at the Dog Hair Studio tomorrow. I'm so afraid they will have to shave him. You see, at the age of 8 months (he's 2 years old now) he developed a real dislike of being combed. He can't stay still and always tries to bite into the comb I'm using so it always ends the same way: after struggling with him for 20 minutes or so I give up and he wins. Result: he has so much fur and so many knots, I can't handle it anymore... we'll see tomorrow!

DAY 48 Feb 17
Here he is ! Fu and his new hairdo! They had to work for 3 and a half hours to get rid of the knots. He was very brave and let it all happen. The woman at the Hair studio doesn't understand why I have so much trouble combing him...he was such a sweet dog! I'm so happy they didn't shave him! Next month he will have to go back for another trim session and they will also wash him... life is so beautiful! Expensive but beautiful!!!
I made it, I'm back on track! With this photo I'm back on time .... hope I will keeping it this way and I really hope to have time to go check on all your blogs and comment.

DAY 38 Candy bags

Well, tomorrow is the big day! My girls are giving a birthday party. Every year we have about 30 kids and every year we make candy bags for them. Last year I used a Kay Miller kit for the tags. This year I made them with Lliella's gorgeous CNY - Chinese New Year kit. I put an ox for the Year 2009 on the tags but every child also gets the animal representing his or her year of birth. It took me all evening to sort out the dates and make the tags with the different animals but I love the result. And my girls love them too. Last year, the bags were a real success, the moms loved my tags... the kids loved the sweets and the cool bags too!

DAY 35+36+37

I was doing so well in January. Never missed a day! But since February is on, it's hard, really hard to keep up. I'll try to do better next week! Oh, and I know I've been tagged but didn't have time to follow this so I promise I'll do it next week. Thanks!!!

Day 35

L was so proud when she felt her new tooth coming out. Here I'm trying to get a close pic of it but I had the wrong lens on my camera. I couldn't get a closer photo!

DAY 36

Is A just tired or is she tired of me taking pics of her all the time?

DAY 37

When I told the girls it was bedtime, this little peanut, instead of going upstairs to her room, ran into the kitchen and started acting silly. Only a few minutes but that was enough for her to feel like she had won a little extra time! After that, no problems... hop, hop, hop into her bed!

DAY 34 Snow ... again!

Obviously winter isn't over! This is a pic I took 1/2 hour ago in our garden. I'm so desperate for sunshine. You too?

DAY 33 koala

This is L 's best friend, he's name is Koala and he's an little friend. Sadly enough, her interest in him has diminished, yesterday she even forgot to take him with her to sleep. He was left on the dinner table all night, poor little one.

We already eat most of the popcorn!
