Gingerbread Latte! November 25,2010



Today brought big snowflakes and big smiles. Getting up for school was a breeze today as the anticipation of running and playing in the snow was so much fun. After I dropped of Sam, I was walking home with my neighbour. She mentioned making a gingerbread syrup for her coffee the other day. I was asking for the recipe when she handed me a jar of gingerbread spice and the recipe for gingerbread syrup.
Well, I shovelled the driveway headed in and made a batch of syrup. DELICIOUS! This is a must!

All that and a bag of chips... November 17,2010




Well I had to get your attention some how. Finally had a moment to do a little update. I can not believe it is the middle of November, where does the time go.

What we have been up to lately hmmmm.

Sam is still enjoying school. I don't find he is as busy as he should be. I feel that preschool offered a more enjoyable and involved curriculum so now I trying to find what our next step will be. This is the time where he should just be gobbling up information and savouring.

On a side note we have been participating in skating at school on Monday's. Sam has been taking pleasure in his accomplishments. As to date we have not done too much skating so this is a new experience for him. Next the parents! LOL!

Anyway, Sam is also still enjoying soccer. Whether it is practice or a game day his enthusiasm is there. He looks forward to running, kicking and hopefully scoring a goal. I hope his drive continues through the colder weather too!

Darren has had a bit of time off here and there, so we have taken the opportunity to do a little painting to freshen up the place. When we moved in a year ago we painted and did flooring in the bedrooms. We thought we would take a bit of time to figure out what kind of light etc was effecting the remaining rooms. As a result we have gone in an unpredictable direction for us. I can honestly say we have gravitated to warmer colours like taupes, greens, reds etc. Well I still can't believe we painted the living room and dinning room BLUE! Yes you heard correctly. It is still growing on us and hey no big deal it is just paint. The rest of the entrance, hallways, family room and kitchen will be a light grey(Irish Mist). The kitchen still needs to be done as do the bathrooms but I haven't pick colours for them yet. I did however select new towels and shower curtain for Sam's bathroom and I am quite pleased if I don't say so myself. Will have to post some pics.

I have been enjoying my bday present from Darren & Sam. I was gifted a Le Creuset pot. And boy I am in LOVE! That baby makes everything even better. So if you have any recipes to share I would to try them.
