After I took some video of Lily and Jake talking in the nursery, Gabriel asked me to video him. So I suggested he sing a song. He initially wanted to sing the Spiderman song, but then he picked "The Repeat Song' from Sunday school. He is just absolutely adorable!

Lily and Jake were "talking" in the nursery tonight. Not to each other ... just "talking". So cute. Jake is just a couple of weeks younger than Lily. I love it when they get to play together. Gabe was my helper tonight and did such a great job. You can hear Lily louder than Jake (of course, being the girl!!) but he did some jabbering of his own.

My mom got this Easter lily for our church for Easter '08. We brought it home with plans to plant it, but it completely died before I got around to it. Finally I thought I'd try and plant it anyway - it certainly couldn't hurt. It came back up a few months later with 2 plants instead of 1 and this year 3 lilies came up with a total of 6 blooms. Not in time for Easter, of course, but that's okay. They're so pretty.
We have had a mini salad with Luke's romaine lettuce and used AJ's spring onions in two mealsso far. Victoria's carrots haven't been ready yet and as soon as the dirt isn't so muddy, AJ has a lot of green beans to pick for Lily!

Our two handsome boys having a great time on the carousel. Big independent boy Luke paid the whole 25 cents for his own rides!!!
Here's Victoria taking a ride.....
Caleb, Victoria, Luke, Lily and AJ waiting patiently in line for another ride.

Our sweetie pie Lily is eleven months old today. For the first time today, she did the "wounded soldier" crawl. Not really crawling, but just pulling herself forward with her arms. She's such a cutie.
She's been sick lately with double middle ear infections, but is now back to her happy little self. For a couple of days she didn't eat much, didn't sleep much, but just wanted to be held. Poor little munchkinezie! I'm so glad she's feeling better.
Here's a cute picture of Victoria and Lily watching a movie last night. I think Lily was more interested in the strings on the blanket, but it was little girl cuddle time most of all!
Here is a picture of the older kiddos eating breakfast yesterday morning. For once on a Sunday morning I didn't try to do any housework and all my church work was done ahead of time, so I didn't feel rushed. I made them egg cups for breakfast.....of course, we ended up having company over for lunch, so the three older kids and I made a mad run through the house picking up the few things that had been left out!

Luke and AJ - very excited about our vacation! This is at the Harvey's in Orillia on our way to the cottage.
AJ and Tor-Tor!
Lily's very first time in the lake. She just loved it.
They all went into the water just as soon as we got there. The weather was absolutely gorgeous on Saturday. It's a good thing they did, because the weather was the nicest that day. Every other day it rained, but not all day. It didn't stop the kids at all. I don't think they missed a day in the lake.
Jeff with Lily and the boys in the paddle boat.
Getting out of the lake and gonna get dried off for a bit.
Takin' a break after her very first time in Oxtongue Lake. What a cutie.
She has all those toys, but would rather play with the lotion - oh, well!
A bit closer picture of Lily snug in her adorable little lifevest.
The other canoe with Jeff, AJ, Lily (yes, she's there if you look carefully) and Victoria.
Me facing my fear of people staring at me and had a great time canoeing with the family. SO glad I did it.
My all-time favourite picture of Lily. So cute with extra sunscreen on her little nosie!
Doing chores even on holidays - what a good girl, Victoria!
Roasting marshmallows by the fireplace.
A sampling of the fudge we found in Dwight, Ontario. Don't ever buy this, because you'll automatically be addicted. We were assured by the store owner that they DO ship it if we want. The chewy praline was the favourite of Jeff and me.
