Another teenager in the house!

Today is Oliver's 13th birthday! I honestly can't believe how fast time flies... I have clear memories of his birth, bringing him home from the hospital, the cute little squeaky voice and the babyish-ness (not sure if I just made that word up) of him. The last one... the little one. Now, although he is still small compared to Alexander and Nicklas, he isn't so little anymore and his teenager is starting to show ;)

Happy birthday, Ollie! We love you!!

Postcards from March in Montreal

How the heck did it become March already? Don't get me wrong... it feels a bit closer to spring so I am not complaining but it is a reminder about how time flies!

This week is our (Andreas and my) spring break. The boys are all next week. It is the first time ever that I do not have the same break as the boys... I think that they planned it so I wouldn't nag them about their Youtube watching, snack eating or day napping 😉

Today, Andreas and I went downtown to walk in a different neighbourhood so, guess what? You get a photo spam (aka a postcard). We're not quite spring-like yet but hope is in the air.

Hope you are all doing well xox

From the tail end of 2022

I have decided to tiptoe out of 2022 and into 2023. Based on my comments over the end of 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022, I will hold my breath at midnight, close my eyes and wish for a kinder and gentler 2023. We all deserve it.

Thank you for being a part of our (lately, not so) day to day. Although my blog has become more quiet over the years, it is still surviving ;)

Lots of love to you all!

Merry Christmas from our home to yours....

Merry Christmas!

The day started off on the tail of a big snow/wind/rain/ice storm, which left us all wondering if Christmas was just not meant to be... again... but the wind cleared, the ice wasn't too bad and the roads were driveable. We had a small gathering, short and sweet, but it was nice to reclaim the holiday again. 

Wishing you all love and peace during this holiday season... from our home to yours...

A November postcard from Montreal

November, so far, has been pretty bipolar. We went from almost summer-like weather to winter in about a week. Let's just say that I started November in sandals and now have to wear boots! It is also dark so early now but- letting you all in on a little secret- leaving work and seeing all the street lights is almost cosy. Almost.

I know that I have been pretty bad at blog maintenance. The boys are WAY less interested in letting me write about them, take pictures of them and post anything about them. Sometimes bribing works but I couldn't afford that every day ;) So, to try to make ammends, I wanted to send you all a November postcard... Novembrrrrrrr is probably more accurate... here we go again xox

Another adult in the house

Today is Alexander's 18th birthday! I can't believe that our baby boy is now a grown man. These last 18 years have been a whirlwind- a sweet boy born in 2004, living in Copenhagen, starting vuggestuen (Danish daycare), meeting friends, moving to Canada, Alexander's first day at his new daycare, becoming a big brother, meeting new friends, soccer, starting elementary school, becoming a big brother again, more soccer, meeting more new friends, trips, spending time together, growing up, graduating from grade 6, starting high school, swimming, rugby, more soccer, more trips, more friends, becoming more independent, football, more rugby, covid, graduating from high school, starting to work, starting CEGEP, becoming even more independent, more football and, today, turning 18 years old. 

All this for him but his parents haven't aged a bit ;)

Congratulations and happy birthday to our first born. We love you!
