Postcards from the Edge

We baked vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting and dark chocolate chips and marshmallows to celebrate our five measly days without television. It was a fun and delicious way to end the week. I am reminded that there are a ton of activities to do instead of watching t.v. shows night after night. I, myself, do not watch more than Law & Order, but truth be told, you can watch an L & O repeat on a different channel every hour. It's sweet! The girls swam, played with friends, strolled around the neighbourhood, went to dance classes, cleaned up the garden once the snow melted, took pictures, coloured 'drurings', read a pile of books, baked and just plain hung out with us and chatted, and they were so pooped out at the end of each day.
Can you spot the Bumble-B in the reflection of El's picture???

The transition back to screens has not been an easy one. The littlest is trying very hard to make up for lost time, and it has been more difficult than ever to pry her away. Go figure!

We are officially turning off the screens on Sunday. Well, not the computers, but they're only for Mark and I when others are occupied. Wish us luck!
