It's hard to believe, but cutie patootie Aietch Ruberg turned one year old on May 23rd. Aietch celebrated the big event with his parents Tammie and Lee, family and friends.
Above, Aietch is "hyped up on sugar from his birthday cake", according to Tammie, as he gets comfy in his new Jake and the Neverland Pirates chair he got from "Pa and Nana". Below, the family shares a hair-raising laugh in a captivating photo courtesy of Ming Photog.
Happy belated birthday Aietch, you're certainly growing up fast!
|Don't I look impressed with my sister Jane's silliness? LOL!|
In celebration of Mother's Day, my niece Erin Papple (seen on the right with her nephew Graham) went out on a limb with yet another creative cake.
This time around, a owl family tree. The big owl representing my mother Joan, the three owls in a row, myself, and sisters Kim and Jane, the pair of owls, Kim's kids Erin and Patrick and the lone owl, Jane's son Graham.
We all gathered at my mom's this year, for what could prove to be one of our last gatherings at her Rebecca street home.
Rebecca street has been home for over 40 years and mom is one of the last original neighbours still living there.
Sure will miss the old place when it sells, but totally get where mom is coming from with her game plan. Now just as long as the new owners make sure to feed my pal Suzi Squirrel, I will rest easy.
The Valley Girls are Coming to Town
Jeanne and Megan reside in the Ottawa region these days, but once lived in St Catharines for many years, where they left a lasting impression with many. Those friends will once again get to share some laughs and memories, when the dynamic duo visit this August.
Can't wait to see you both!
Our Toronto friend, Francesca Mackie was indeed a blooming beauty on her birthday in early May.
Francesca was treated to a delicious dinner out where she was joined by her husband Brian and ever-growing offspring, Colin and Catriona to dine on the best burgers in town.
Glad you had a good time Francesca.
You Can't Disguise Their Joy
We had the pleasure of seeing Cathy and Ernie Dick when they enjoyed a few days vacation in Niagara Falls (their first visit to the tourist attraction in over 30 years.)
We guess that wasn't quite enough to cure the Ottawa Valley couple's travel fever, as they recently ventured much further away with a trip to New Orleans.
As we see above, they got right into the festivities with colourful masks and an era of shiny beads. Tradition dictates one usually has to earn their beads in one way or another. We're not sure if that rang true for Cathy and Ernie, who should get theirs for being such a terrific twosome.
Shine on Little Star
The Victoria Day tradition continues, as my nephew Graham Storie-Clark lit up the night sky with his bright and shiny sparklers. Supervised by his parents Jane and Ken, Graham enjoyed his sparklers at a park across the street from the family's Roehampton Avenue apartment.
This was the first time I was not there to join in on the fun, now that I no longer live in the same building (or city) as Graham, Jane and Ken. With Victoria Day being only the first of the Summer long weekends, I will sure try to be there for at least one of them.
Siblings in the Rain
We just love this candid pix of Colin and Catriona Mackie, as they prove sibling rivalry really is a thing of the past, by sharing an umbrella in the rain.
Grin and Bear It
It was a family affair as siblings Rebekah, Nathaniel and Dale Eckert joined their mom's Ginny and Mickey for some fun at the zoo.
Our Winnipeg friends are seen here hamming it up for the camera along side a polar bear. Not to worry, the bear's obviously a fake, but the fun is 100% authentic.
Stag n' Doe-Ho-Ho!
Scribbles alumni Jane Storie had a great time when she joined in the funny at her friend's recent Stag n' Doe.
The event included a photo booth and an ample supply of hats, wigs and other zany fashion accessories. You had only a matter of seconds between shots to grab different articles and pose for the camera.
The results? Some pretty funny photos and some pretty amazing memories!
