Ski Hill Shenanigans...

Before Christmas we spent a few days at our place in Fernie.
Had NO IDEA how it would go with a 2 week old baby but turns out it was the greatest thing we could have done.
Sneak away to our happy place.
No schedule, no plans, no expectations.

It was wonderful.
And the boys got a few ski days in…

We rewarded ourselves with jammy days, loads of lazy cups of coffee and tea, slow moving mornings, very few outings and lots of hot chocolate apres ski!

Life is good indeed.

This place continues to slow us down, remind us of our priorities, and entertain our exploring curiosities.
Thank you FERNIE!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Approaching Christmas Chaos?

The day before Buggy arrived we took in our last corporate Christmas party.  PHEWF!
This one involved: sugar, screaming kids, chaos, more sugar, Santa, more chaos, an impressive spread of snacks, and a few games.
No overload on presents or take home stuff though.  I repeat… PHEWF!

Someone had a wee bit of fun.
Ok, we all did.
We have a serious bouncy castle addict on our hands.  Who doesn't love being shot down a slide like a torpedo?!
We've had such a fun month (or two) preparing for the holidays with just Andrew.
We started (ridiculously) early to embrace it all with the 3 year old knowing full well baby's arrival would slow us down.
The plan was brilliant.  And we nailed the execution. YEAH US!
Turns out, the celebration just got better and more fun with two… no really, it did.
(may have something to do with the fact that I was sleeping ZERO HOURS before baby and now I can actually sleep).

I can't lie though, we are running out of steam as the big day approaches.
NOT to be mistaken for running out of spirit.
The real challenge is that I'm also running out of creative ideas on where to put TIMMY, our Elf on the Shelf.

We've had time in Fernie, time at home and time with Santa.
Kinda feel like the gifts have already been handed out in our world.

As a side note, I'm secretly looking forward to taking our crispy dry tree down and clearing out clutter.  But that is a secret - shhhhh.  I must always embrace my inner Grinch.  Christmas makes a mess!

Next year we will take it to the next level with two kiddos.  SO AFRAID!  Taking tips starting Boxing Day 2013.

T minus 3 sleeps people!
3 sleeps!!!

We've been working on building a wee ski hill on our front lawn.
(big surprise right?!)
It has already been put to good use with all our early season snow.

The one in the back yard is complete with steps and a slide.

Finding our way...

We have had a week of cuddles, naps and hanging out at home.
The cold weather has forced us to hunker down and just enjoy.

Doing so well and still am pinching myself…. I HAVE 2 KIDS!!! 

Here are a few more from our first week as a family.
I've tried to limit it to a very few.  I am realizing not EVERYONE is photo crazy like this Mumma.
