family Motherhood

Merry Ho Ho Ho ~ We finally got a family picture

The holidays can be both exciting and overwhelming at the same time. Each year I get so excited to take the perfect family picture and the entire family just runs away to play in the snow or whip up some cookies in my perfectly curated outfits. This year was a little different! I caught them off guard at 7.30am and set everything up beforehand-)).

I know what your thinking, thats sooo smart. I gave them a quick breakfast of Eggo’s and fruit. I also told them a few white lies about how Santa is always watching. Unfortunately they are getting older and they are on to my every word. My 7 year old then advised me that is literally impossible because Santa is old and needs more rest these days (Boo Hoo) thats true! and then he said I say the same thing every year (Thats true too)

I got them perfectly lined up and wouldn’t you know I forgot my lense in another bag. I left them alone for 5 mins and a crazy fight broke out over Christmas lists and candy over the holidays. (This is the reason parents drink wine at night-))

We solved that issue and set up again! With 2 kids happy and 2 kids grumpy and a perfect timer we shot 40 photos with the hope that a few would be “The Christmas Photo” Here they are, you can tell me what you think?

Amongst all the chaos we wouldn’t change a thing. There is nothing like family and there is no place like home. We are completely blessed and this family picture will remain one of my favourites. There are many imperfections and that what makes things unique.

Lets make the holidays whatever we want them to be, lets invest in quality time and maximize on the memories. Life is short and we are trying our best each and everyday. You got this!!

 

Many Blessings

The Jodie and #jcrew

  • Don’t mind me, I’m just sharing a moment with my hair 📸 I have been blessed with a lot of hair and after having children I shed a lot of strands. We all go through seasons when our hair bothers us. There are so many phenomenal products on the market. It’s trial and error to find the best fit.It can get really expensive too. Follow on IG stories for some of my favourite hair products . In the meantime here are a few tips that I follow to keep my hair healthy, shiny and strong 💡 - Take a good daily multivitamin - Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.
- Before washday I like to warm up coconut oil or @iyatsalon.spa Golden Oil and massage my scalp.
- Brush hair before washing @wetbrushca - After you shampoo/condition seal the hair with a cold water rinse. Closing the hair follicles - Minimize Heat on your precious strands. 
Happy Sunday Hair Lovers

  • On days like today in -30 ish weather my mind goes back to island days and pineapples bigger than my head. This quickly became an entertaining game for the kids and I. Pretty good for an un coordinated South African /Canadian eh! •

  • Ok I’m actually double dipping today, I usually post an image a day but it’s been an exceptional week so far and filled with so much of love and appreciation for the people I interact with on a daily! I not only learn so much, my spirit is topped up and my energy stores are filled. Each personal message,comment ,like or email is an indication that you care. You have taken a moment in your day to make my day better and I’m humbled. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making each day better than the day before. I hope that I have the same effect on you. I look forward to talking to my family about this tonight as we sitting around the dinner table #stayblessed #instafam •

  • I could only wish that my cheeks looked this cute in -25!! The only thing that happens to me is a continual nose drip and a frozen perma smile #immigrantlife 
My little sassy says she wishes she could be a little bit of my colour too #loveher •
