We had a colouring contest while Lorianne was away. She took one picture home to her family in Emo to colour and we coloured the same one here in Ottawa.


Here are our results :)

Elizabeth had crazy hair day at school and somehow talked us into getting blue streaks with hair chalk. Of course Matthew insisted he needed to have blue hair as well.

My third duty day for Matthew's preschool class today! We've been arranging play dates with some of Matthew's classmates in an attempt to help him acclimatize and I'm pleased to report that it seems to be working.


Matthew and I helped his friend Wren build a couple of snowmen during our outside playtime. Then he dragged me around to every station before settling down to read many stories. We ended up with about fifteen kids clustered around me, each with their own book they wanted me to read!


During preschool Matthew was still mostly wanting to play with me but he obviously now has friends and his last "Day in a life" paper that came home from preschool now says he's happy and talkative (THAT's my kid) instead of very quiet.


I'd been lamenting that I hadn't had time to do anything interesting for snack and Lorianne totally talked me into making snowmen. I was pretty excited, although apparently a big percentage of the kids do not like cheese so we had lots of cheese rolls left over. Elizabeth, Amelia, Matthew and Daddy didn't mind in the least. The kids did seem to appreciate the cutesy snack though.

We started Janice's birthday off with a literal bang Thursday morning after Amelia fell down an entire flight of stairs. Apparently she tried to jump/run down like her siblings with disasterous results. Large goose egg behind ear is subsiding and while she was quite subdued she seems to be okay. Amelia has agreed she's all done falling down. CHEO was super quiet - I only saw one or two other kids and door-to-door I was gone just an hour (!) Our ER doc was our neighbour from across the street so he told us to come over later this evening if we have any questions.


48 hours later it appears Amelia is completely fine. In other news she has learned to somersault unassisted and Elizabeth's working on headstands. Eep!

We spent the last day of Christmas holidays at the Children's museum with Elizabeth's friend Ruici.


Epiphany supper was Galette de roi and tourtière, both from the amazing Olive & Chili bakery. I haven't had a commercial Galette de roi in decades, so this was very exciting. I wasn't keen on making one at home after last year's sent Janice to the ER and I haven't had almond flour in the house since.


Elizabeth was excited to find the fève in her piece. I was excited that no one swallowed it.
