This is us. We are not great (as our friends and family know) at keeping in regular touch and sending frequent photos. We hope to document big events and/or random good pics we though were worth sharing.

Kids & Music

 Maya learning piano with Wendo.

 Aidan learning drums (on an electric set) - an acoustic compromise we can all live with.
Bertha is taking violin lessons with Scott.

Rug Hooking

Maya and Mel are working on hooked rugs. Maya started and is almost finished her small piece and is helping with a larger project. The theme for this project (with a larger group of women) is around Festival 500, an international choral festival that is hosted in St. John's every 2 years. I'll post something when they are all finished (due by the end of April).


 Maya & Mel are working on a hooked rug together and Bertha was tasked with sorting light and dark blue fabric strips.  She didn't stay on task for very long....Maya took this photo above.
The kids went to bed and I went to take a shower and saw this. Needless to say, I asked Aidan to clean it up in the morning.  Notice - food colouring, soy sause, pepper, tin, shampoo, 3 glasses and 1 cup, tweezer and toilet paper - none of which normally reside on the counter.

Snow day!

This is the schedule that Maya & Aidan made for their unexpected snow day in that I (Mel) could continue working from home.
 Hot chocolate in their backyard fort.
This is looking out through my office (basement) window.
