Thursday Trip to the Library - January 13/11

Today was declared a SNOWDAY so Ainsley had the opportunity to join Ava & I at our weekly library program "Time for Tots".  I was a little worried she was going to be bored because it's really geared to 18-36month olds but they both had a great time!  Ava I think came out of her shell even more having her sister there.  We did the usual singing, reading & ribbon time, with Ava just begging for more lol...we held the librarian in there 15mins past finish time.


After program we hit the Family Drop In table.  This week's theme was Apple Pie. They had some cute little books and an ADOURABLE craft! 

The books to go with the theme were:

Thankful Thursday

This Thursday most of Saint John, New Brunswick woke up buried under 35+cm's (almost a foot & half when all was said and done)  of SNOW!  I however was not one of them Thankfully because my strapping, almost 41(his birthday's tomorrow) , young MAN shovelled me out ;)

I am Thankful that my child was not one of the dozens terrified yesterday afternoon when a school bus landed in a ditch.  I am incredibly Thankful that none of those children were hurt.

I am Thankful that my bills are paid and we can splurge a little on pizza delivery tonight (mmmm I love food, especially when I don't have to cook or clean up)

I am Thankful to have a loving family to call my own.  This afternoon Wayne & Ainsley played in the new snow and built a beautiful igloo while Ava & I baked a cake and cupcakes for tomorrow's order.
**Ava doesn't like's cold, wet & too deep and snow gear & boots are much too heavy LOL...Mommy's girl :P**
I should have gone out sooner to take a picture before it
collapsed under it's own weight.  Wayne and Ainsley had done a beautiful job though!
