Foto Friday: week 4

[day 22: Our bare Rose of Sharon tree against the last patch of snow on our lawn.]

[day 23: My neighbourhood's newly re-vamped mailbox!]

[day 24: Trying to figure out how to get to the good stuff.]

[day 25: Day 2 of the new car seat--after I took it apart to wash it because it was covered in baby vomit. Good times. [Yes, my son has a black and fuchsia car seat...I thought the picture on the box was red!]]

[day 26: A fan-favourite around here, peanut butter and banana on toast...YUM!]

[day 27: Finally received journal 4038 from Tejal in New Jersey. It has traveled from Australia to the Philippines to the USA and now to Canada. It has a ways to go and then Faiza will get it too. It's a neat mail-themed project from 1001 Journals. Check it out!]

[day 28: Today is one of my oldest and dearest friend's birthday. She is one of the most amazing women I know. She is a fantastic mother and wife, a creative soul, a whiz in money management, stylish without spending lots, a fantastic interior designer, and a wonderful friend. She finds time for everyone before herself all.the.time. [something she needs to change just a wee bit.] And she does all this while living with Multiple Sclerosis. How fitting was it that the MS Read-A-Thon was introduced to my class on her birthday; a cause I have supported my entire life, from the time I was a wee reader. I distinctly remember reading the most books and raising the most money one year so I could get the *top* prize of a stuffed dog. This year's top prize is a Nintendo DSi. Anyway, this is a long caption that should probably have its own post, but I just wanted to say, Happy Birthday, Paula. I love you.]

Oh I got very very excited when I saw that envelope! So glad it got to you. Can't wait to see what you get up to with it :) Great post all round - now I'm craving peanut butter and banana on toast. My dad used to eat pear and apple and peanut butter on toast every morning. I'd like to keep the tradition going, but I just can't get used to the taste :P And may I just say, your son is adorable :)

Tears over here. Thanks for the love and kind words. One of the greatest gifts is to have a wonderful friend like you. It warms my heart to know that we can still reminisce about the 'old times' and that we still have so many more years to come.

Thank you to your school for supporting MS! There is a book about MS for kids called Benjamin: My Mum Is Special that you can get from the MS Society (or I have one too) that might be a good learning tool...

Oh my goodness, I love that mailbox!! And I cannot wait to get the mail-journal. I'm the last to receive and work on it, so I can't wait to see the progress of it all. :]

@bianca, i think it's all in the ripeness of the fruit vs the sweetness of the pb. i can't stand mushy banana so mine are always slightly under-ripe and perfectly matched with the pb's saltiness.

@kos, i'm definitely going to get my hands on that book. i'm so glad to celebrate all the important and not-so-important moments in our lives together.

@faiza & tez, i love foto fridays as well, but i'm not sure if 7 pics is a bit much in one post. what do you think? should i split it up?

@L. Nicole, i love how interconnected the blogosphere is! you're lucky to be the last one with the journal. [p.s. watch out for a small note in your mailbox soon!]

7 pics is perfect! i look forward to them every week...
