Saturday Morning

This morning has been nice a quiet around here. Philip found his old car seat and was having fun playing in the closet. Mike went to play the organ and Philip watched a bit of Max and Ruby while I caught up on some of my favorite blogs. Then we talked with family on the phone.

It was after this that we needed something else special to do. So I decided to make some Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies! While they cooled on the racks, Philip did voice some concern that the cookie monster was going to come and eat all the cookies! He can say the funniest things sometimes. You can tell by the excitement in his eyes that he really wants to eat those cookies. And now he is just waiting for Dad to get home so he can have another.

The sky is dark now and we are listening to the rain and thunder outside. The fresh air coming in the patio door is wonderful! I hope that you all are having a great Saturday too.

It makes me so happy when I see my little one playing nicely. And what is even better is when he tells me his great structure is a Church! At least I know that we are doing something right.

Here they are!

I am ready to pass along the Lovely Blog Award to 15 fellow bloggers. Here are the rules that I get to play by:

1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.
3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Since I am fairly new to the whole world of blogging, it has been a fun search to find 15 new lovely blogs. And I have found so many!

So here they are in no particular order:

I hope that you enjoy their blogs as much as I do!

Happy Canada Day!

Today is Canada Day and so in honor of that last night we went to the RCMP Sunset Ceremonies. It is a relaxed show in which the officers show off some of their skills on horse back and with the trained police dogs. This first picture is from two years ago when we attended in the VIP section. It is a really fun event! However, last night it ended up raining on us and we had to leave early. Philip had a blast and was very excited to see the animals. He was really good at cheering for them too!
