Last year, we had a go at a winter bucket list. We didn’t do everything on the list, but I did like turning to the list when I wanted a fun activity for the weekend.
So here is our winter bucket list for 2013:
1. Visit a farm and pick our own fruit
2. Get out of the city, even for a day
3. Cook with vegetables from our own garden
4. Try a new cuisine
5. Build a slide in our garden
6. Spend an evening in front of a roaring fire
7. Build a fairy garden
8. Have a sleepover
9. Visit a national park
10. Start a tradition
(A contribution to the Happy Family Movement Summer Bucket List Challenge!)
Alannah and Sammy had been up in the play room for a while. I crept up the stairs to find them singing to each other.

Baby sister is 20 weeks along. Both Darren and I felt her kick this week for the first time.

She has been sick all week. Again. Standing at her bedroom window, she is watching Daddy sweeping leaves off the garage roof.

Meet Alannah’s baby sister. She is due in a little over 20 weeks.
Alannah often stops me in whatever I am doing to insist she wants to give the baby a kiss. Alannah was convinced all along the baby was a girl and now we know.

Five days of sickness, fever in the high 38s, running nose, cough, disturbed sleep and – finally on Friday – vomiting.
