Matthew is enthusiastic, lively and full of beans.

He can be very very naughty so it is a good thing he is cute!

There's been a lot of "Quick! Take a picture of [x] and post it on my blog" lately. (Ahem - kiddos - it can become YOUR blog when you do most of the picture sorting and post writing...)


In any case, there has been a lot of castle building and a lot of food that cannot possibly be eaten until it is photographed lately.

Vera came to visit Ottawa and brought both kids with her, which was fun as Astra is just a bit older than Elizabeth and Magnus just a bit younger than Matthew.


Astra and Elizabeth played together really nicely for quite a while during the garage sale and Elizabeth was sad when Astra had to leave. The plan was for everyone to come for dinner and Grandma Margaret's on Sunday, but Elizabeth's friend Adi dropped by for a playdate and kidnapped Elizabeth in the afternoon and Elizabeth and Adi were having so much fun together that we agreed she could stay for supper at Adi's. Hopefully Elizabeth will have another chance to play with Astra soon...


The other kids - including Erika - not sure why no picture of her - had a lot of fun playing on Grandma's lounge chair. The little boys in particular delighted in piling onto the girls. They were quite adorable until the evening caught up with them and we all rushed home to bed!

This year's Great Glebe Garage Sale was CHILLY!


The forecast called for frost and a low of -2C (which we got!) so I frantically covered up as much of the garden as we possibly could and hoped for the best. Looks like we got away with it, but in the morning it still hadn't warmed up in the shade especially and poor Auntie Janice was quite frozen at points.


Our lawn still hasn't recovered from the digger shenanigans so we were very pleased that our neighbours agreed to help host the Breast Cancer Action ladies in pink. Auntie Mary and Uncle Dave took our kids around the garage sale with Xander and Isabelle (Auntie Karen was on a girl's trip in the States). This was just as well as I tried to walk around the garage sale but once I reached Clemow and Lyon it was clear this was about as far as I was going to get this year. I had to stop and rest every couple of steps - I wasn't exactly experiencing contractions as described to me but there was some concern and I decided I'd better behave myself for the rest of the day..


Elizabeth agreed to sell some toys in exchange for being allowed to buy a small knitted owl from the pink ladies and some cupcakes (win-win!)

Auntie Mary is visiting overnight and the kids conned her into putting on the toddler monkey costumes. Really I think we'll have to relabel that one as "one size fits all"!


The kids were especially excited because it was also sleepover night in Auntie Janice's room. We thought it would be prudent to try it at least once before baby since that is our plan for dealing with Matthew when we are both at the hospital overnight!


This was Matthew's very first sleepover and it went great, even though Elizabeth apparently was snoring and she still falls out of bed if there are no rails. She recently decided she was ready to sleep on the top bunk and had been alternating with the bottom bunk before totally transitioning to the top. I guess it's good she did this prior to the sleepover as we might have been even more terrified if we'd been aware that the falling out of bed wasn't a thing of the past.


At least Auntie Janice had the foresight to put Matthew back far enough that she didn't squash him on the way out (he insisted on sleeping with his head close to Elizabeth's - he likes company!)
