Thankful Sunday

I am counting my blessings today!
It is DH's birthday and for the last 5 days I have surprised him with a different gift. Yesterday I toured him around to some bookstores, since reading is his favorite hobby. One of the locations we dropped some cash was the World's Largest Bookstore in Toronto!

We spent the evening with my entire family to celebrate the three March birthdays. It's not very often that all my siblings, parents, nieces and nephews are in the same place, and yesterday evening it happened! We made a big deal about "Earth Hour", by creating a little video about how we celebrated, which my niece wanted to make for a class presentation. There were 10 children there and we discussed the importance of this symbolic gesture of turning off the lights for 1 hour, and the ways in which we can make the earth/cities/homes healthier places to live. The older guys entertained us by singing and playing guitars, the younger kids enjoyed playing outside in the dark, and the remaining older kids played Bananagrams by candlelight...here is a photo of my 2 sisters, 2 of my nieces and my daughter in the middle of a game. What a great evening we had!

The weather has been so lovely this spring and the flowers are starting to bloom. Here are some daffodils just waiting for warmer weather.
We can't wait for the outside colour to return!

And until then, we bring the colour inside to enjoy!
