Pace for the Donkeys 2015

This past weekend, we all raced for the donkeys at the Donkey Sanctuary in Guelph.  It’s the second year we’ve supported this great cause, and again had a wonderful time!

Annika helped me cross the finish line this year!

and as always, my parents finished strong!  beating both their times from last year by a few minutes each!!

Big Girls Back to School!

P1270812

They were so excited on Tuesday to meet their teachers and see their friends!

How is it possible that Annika has started Grade 2 and Selena is in Senior Kindergarten?!

We’re so proud of our beautiful, hardworking and excitable girls.  Wishing them all the best this year at school!

…and check out big-brother, protector Mavie looking out for them!

I kinda went overboard with the leopard print cake… but Meaghan’s a Fashion Blogger (https://thepassionatewardrobe.wordpress.com/) and this is the closest thing they had to “fashion” d├ęcor for a cake lol!
