Happy things with which to end the week

I usually do these posts on Fridays, but it's never too late for a happy list, is it? Here are some of the things that have made me smile this week:

Sawyer's first day of Kindergarten {!}, Dylan's first day of Grade 2. They were both so excited about the new school year as they headed off to school.

My cutie pies

We've been going through hundreds of photos, making memory boards for Grandpa's memorial service on Tuesday. I have cried a lot this week, but looking through these has made me laugh quite a bit, too. Love this one of Grandpa, Amanda, Auntie Pat and me.

I love his grin, watching us

Dinosaurs. On a space ship. Totally awesome episode of Doctor Who tonight! And, let's face it, every Saturday night really.

It was an exciting, hilarious, and completely kid-friendly episode. We are sooo showing it to the boys tomorrow :)

My belated anniversary gift from Alan... a shiny white KitchenAid Ultra! I got it last night and already I've made a plum cake {the tree in our garden is bursting with them} and Nutella brownies. Next up, bread dough!

Look at it! It totally pretties up my kitchen counter.

It felt good to be back at work this week. I love our new admin team, and my sweet little class of first graders. While I'm still feeling overwhelmed and I've got a "to do" list a mile long, I have a really good feeling about this school year.

Pretty sure I need that mug.

How was your week? I hope it was filled with happy things, and that your weekend has been fabulous so far. More on Monday. 

À bientôt!

  1. What a beautiful list of things to end the week with, especially as it proved to be a tougher week than you had anticipated dear. Sending you all big hugs and kisses for week two of term. And my how those boys need bigger hugs - how much have they grown since I saw them!!!
    Catch up soon I hope. xx

  2. your boys are the cutest!!! can't get over their faces :)

    and your grandpa's grin-- it's what i noticed before you even mentioned it. what a special photo to always have.

    when i saw your anniversary gift on facebook, i thought how PERECT Alan did. What a great color you chose too! mmm homemade bread. someday when we meet, i hope you know that we're going to spend a lot of time in your kitchen so you can feed me sweets ;) lol

    that mug? so you! clearly. :)

  3. KitchenAid mixers are the best! I LOVE mine. So sorry you're having to say goodbye to your Grandpa, it's never easy.
