It’s no secret I love to barbecue. I’m not the best at it and I don’t nearly get to do it enough, but I do love to be in front of a grill. I also love to eat. And you all know I love to make photographs. So when a local BBQ store called BBQ’s […]

Another summer was half way done and another Lacelle family picnic was upon us. Dana works hard to make this event a success every year. She also took these photos and as you can see, it was beautiful and everyone enjoyed themselves. It’s a great tradition to get everyone together at least once a year, […]

For Christmas, I found a little Lego digital camera for Oliver. It’s called the “nanoblock lego camera” and it has little Lego pieces that you can use to customize the camera. It doesn’t have a display on the back, nor does it have very good low light capabilities but it was a fun little surprise […]

We were a little late getting our Christmas tree this year. It was just one of those years where we got super busy the first couple of weeks of December and there was no time to get out and get one – let alone trim it. And with Oliver’s birthday so close to Christmas, we […]

Oliver has been obsessed with Star Wars for quite a while now. It should come as no surprise that he wanted to be Luke Skywalker for Hallowe’en this year. Dana, the wonderfully-obliging Mum that she is, dug out her old Princess Leia costume (why have I never seen this before?) and dressed up with Oliver […]

We took our annual trip to Downey’s Farm where we took some photos in the pumpkin patch and enjoyed the afternoon as a family. We’ve done this every year since we had Oliver and it’s a great tradition. We always have a fabulous time and there is so much to do for both the kids […]

Canada Day is always such a big celebration day with us. We’ve been a part of the Rosedale Neighbourhood Street Party for a couple of years now – celebrating Canada Day with friends and neighbours. Oliver especially loves it because there are so many fun activities for the kids to do: jump on the trampoline, […]

Oliver has been on a real Star Wars kick these past six months. Whether it’s Angry Birds Star Wars, The Clone Wars Cartoon, EvantubeHD and his awesome new Star Wars toy reviews, or the original movies, he can’t get enough. So Dana, the fantastic Mother that she is, found a set of used original Star […]

Oliver loves to set up little picnics for us to eat at. It’s actually quite cute and he’s really good it! He’ll probably be a great “entertainer of guests” when he gets older, just like his Mum. Oliver also has shown some interest in taking photographs. He holds the camera well, even though it’s a […]

Oliver’s Grandmother was celebrating her 65th birthday this year so we had a little party for her, complete with her closest relatives. We had wonderful Ukrainian food, lots of presents and great laughs. Oh, and there was cake – how could we forget that? Cheers! t.

Hallowe’en is always fun around our house. Dana really decorates the place up right. Oliver loves to get dressed up as seen in our previous posts (Oliver’s first Hallowe’en, Oliver’s second Hallowe’en, & Oliver’s third Hallowe’en) and this year was no exception. Oliver originally wanted…

Just another couple of shots of Oliver from around the house. He certainly loves his scooter! He also enjoys doing something silly for the Flip Camera and then watching it playback on the screen. The photos below are from an earlier…

More bumming around the house. More Oliver eating and getting it all over himself. Trying some new angles and some new processing techniques. Some I’m liking, others won’t see the light of day! LOL! The moral of this story: Any way you look at it – I’m posting more fun pictures…

We don’t eat out on our back deck nearly as much as we should. It’s a beautiful spot, and the weather has been so picture-perfect this summer that it’s a shame we haven’t spent more time out there. We hope to remedy that in the coming years.
But for now, on this long weekend in May…

If I remember correctly, this was our Mother’s Day celebration. Oh and boy did we have fun! The day started with some fun playtime in the living room. We then got ready and went to the Sunset Grill for some brunch. It is our very favourite place to have brunch and the staff all know and love Oliver. He is such a charmer, that’s for sure…

More goofing around at home, over a great pancake breakfast (as most typical Sundays begin in our household).

I had been growing my hair for quite a while. I thought that I wanted it longer as I was tired of the buzzed head that I had been sporting for the last few years. But there comes a point, the “in-between” point where you just can’t live with it any longer. If you can push through that point, you can get the hair growth…
