This is one of my favourite photos of Alice because it perfectly captures her affection for June’s doll. I find it remarkable watching her spend time with Pearl. She hugs her, kisses her, speaks to her in a gentle voice and shows her to Jeremy and me with the affectionate and doting pride of a mother.

And this one is a new favourite photo, too. 🙂
All three of our little blessings.
We have a wee bit of snow on the ground here . . . enough to warrant snow suits and some outdoor escapades! Alice kept tipping over in her snowsuit . . .
. . . and couldn’t get up on her own.
Fun times on the swings. Taking the swing set along from Hamilton was an excellent, excellent idea.
Snow fights! I love how James is hiding behind his shield in this first photo!
Ooof! No one was hurt in these pictures, despite appearances to the contrary!
We bought an Advent candle holder with a beautiful nativity scene on it and have been lighting the candles every Sunday. Alice finds the candlelight fascinating! She stands up in her high chair, points and chats animatedly! So darling.
We also had a little celebration for Saint Nicholas day (also known as Sinter Klaas). The kids left their shoes by the front door and got some new socks and some candy and were totally thrilled! 🙂
Growing lad. And yes, James wears t-shirts and shorts mid-winter. Apparently 21 degrees inside a house is “hot” and “stuffy” and unbearable in jeans and a sweater!
Little lady. 🙂
