A 2022 Retrospective – Happy New Year!

As part of the New Year’s celebrations here, the kiddies and I looked back over 2022, and chose our favourite adventures from the past twelve months. I’ll start with mine, which was waking up to the perfect Mother’s Day breakfast, made especially for me, by the (rather noisy) little ones!

Next up – Sofia – who chose making eggs in the Instant Pot as her favourite time from this year.

Then, there’s Michael who loved riding the horsies at the new library!

Giggly Chloe insists the best time she had in 2022 was when it was so hot, everyone just ran around in their underwear all day…oh my!

Vera loved welcoming Leysa and Ionna to our home.

Joy thought learning to water paint was a lot of fun.

Riley’s favourite time of fun was when she spent the whole day playing with our Elf on the Shelf, Caroline.

And, last but not least, Luna’s favourite adventure this past year was helping to furnish Mommy’s new dollhouse.

Of course, the biggest event for all of the kiddies was getting their own house, which Uncle P. put together for them!

There were quite a few patterns on our blog this year, too! Do you remember these outfits?
