A new bank holiday Monday for Canada…happy Family Day

In preparation for Canada’s newest bank holiday Monday, Family Day, I opened a “grandchildren” box which had been sealed for the past ten years or so. What did I find? All the hand puppets in various stages of muckiness.

So I threw them in the wash. Stuffies can be washed in cold…can’t they? But the last time I put a stuffy into the dryer there were some disastrous results so the puppets were stood on shampoo and hair spray bottles on the counter of the “James Bond” bathroom overnight to dry. (The James Bond bathroom is another story)

In the morning all they needed was a good brush-out.

After a shower and an emergency trip to Sbux, there was a few hours dedicated to midterm study and theory discussion.

You can see that Milo is always helpful in these situations.

Then Kerstie brought Bunny and Binky over and we played and had a puppet show.

I’d call that a lovely Family Day bank holiday, wouldn’t you?

    Absolutely wonderful family day! Love those happy munchkin smiles:-) Also, I’m using my phone to go through my e-mails this morning which meant the photos didn’t show up till I came to your site, leaving me in suspense as to what a “stuffie” was. 🙂 very fun!

    Family Day was already a holiday in AB before I moved here and I love the idea of it- especially now that I’m a mum. Our little Evening was born two minutes before midnight just before Family Day began last year, so it will always be special to us – the day we became a family!
