I Made a Tidy Baby! And Some Other Stuff...

My very first homemade Mother's Day card!
Yay for daycare artwork!

After church we went to Stéphane's parents for dinner. It was so great to not have to cook. Merci Ma et Pa!
Is it me or are those eyelashes just plain RIDICULOUS??

Liliane loves playing with this little bag of rubber bracelets I have. Remember the ones from the 80s? I got a bunch a few years back (Madonna concert outfit. Long story.) and she has really taken a shine to them.
First I dump them ALL OUT and lay them side by side very carefully like this.

Then I bring them all in to the kitchen to play a very organized game with Papa.

Then we put them back.

One by one.

Don't be jealous of how we pass our time around here, OK? My baby likes to clean things up, she's kinda like her Dad that way. I wonder how long that will last?

Loving this long weekend despite some REALLY CRAPPY weather out here. I put the heat back on in Liliane's room today. The funny thing is that in barely a month from now, we'll be begging for mercy from some evil, sweaty heatwave.

We went to visit our new house today to take some measurements and figure out what to paint the living room/dining room wall. I had an idea and dragged one of our couch cushions along to double check. Yep, the way it is now will definitely not work. Definitely. BUT, the blue that is in the bathroom right now, will be perfect!
This is the blue I'm talking about (on the wall, not the painting):

The wall I'm referring to is on the left, behind those stick thingys.

So not only does the current owner have a paint chip, she has some actual paint leftovers! (It's Debbie Travis, "40 Winks.") I think it'll be great with our sagey green couches. I'll let you know.
In other news... I went to a workshop yesterday with a bunch of ladies from my church. Now, I realize that I don't talk about my spiritual life on my blog, but that's only because: a) there are no baby photos or cute captions to go along with that subject and b) it's not a part of my life that I am comfortable sharing with others by throwing it at the wall of the internet and seeing what sticks. Does that garbled, food-related metaphor make sense? Anyway, all this to say that I went to a workshop organized by the Women's Baptist organization of Quebec (I know I so totally got the name wrong, sorry Ann!) given by Ethel Rowntree called Beyond Ordinary Living: Dream, Dare and Do. It was like having a spa day for the soul. Lovely ladies, good company, good food and some really inspiring ideas. We got homework to do so I'm looking forward to revisiting some of the things she talked to us about and rising to the challenge of following my dreams. Cool stuff.
We decided today that we would spend the day in Ottawa tomorrow with Stéphane's sister and family at the Tulip festival so we'll be hitting the road first thing in the morning.
Enjoy your long weekend everybody!
