Caitlin turns 7!

So last month was Caitlin's 7th birthday. The first big celebration was our annual Rainforest Cafe visit, complete with Volcano dessert. Sadly I forgot to take a photo this year! But it was such a disappointment that I'm not sure we'll return next year. But we did get a photo of Caitlin's newly pierced ears. She is now officially grown up, at least it feels that way. I was very nervous about letting go of her being a little girl but it hasn't really changed her like I thought it would!

The second celebration of course was the bowling party. The party was held during 'cosmic bowling' so it was quite difficult to take photos, but I managed to get a few. The party host was incredible, I was so surprised! The party itself was quite successful although very stressful too. Trying to keep 17 7 year olds organised isn't as easy as you might think!

Snow day! Times two!

Up here in the sticks it's virtually unheard of to have two snow days in a row so it's certainly worth posting about!

The worst of the blizzard happened overnight, which meant it was quite noisy so I didn't sleep too well. I could hear the wind blowing at the back patio doors and I did fear they might actually blow open a few times but it seemed like they were fine. So I was quite surprised to discover a little snow pile on the inside of the doors about halfway through the morning!

The snow wasn't too deep but once the snow removal guys started moving it the piles got pretty huge. Caitlin was loving playing out in it!

I'm pretty sure school will be open on Friday, since they so rarely close here. A good job too because it's way too cold for them to play outside and we all know how boring staying at home all day is!
