andreamful NYE at the beach! A palm tree-less, not so tropical and quite under-exotic with delightful arctic winds and the pleasant feeling of frostbite in your nose, ears, toes, and fingers kind of beach. Ahhhhhhh. #ohcanada #greatlakes 4w

andreamful Love at first sight with the mom of our future puppy. Hoping everything goes well so we can have our pup home in the next couple of months #dogwhisperer 4w
  •   isadora.g Omg it's a vizsla I loooooove this breed they are amazing dogs, well all dogs are amazing but this is one of my favorite top 5 breeds. Wow congratulations on your future family addition, I'm exited for you. 4w
  •   gayoung0828 I hope you be will happy and healthy everyday in 2015. 4w
  •   andreamful @gayoung0828 thank you! 4w
  •   andreamful @isadora.g thank you! They are in our top five too. For me it was between a Vizsla and a Dalmatian. For my husband it was between a Golden and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier (he grew up with two) and we considered Labradors as well. It was hard making a decision, but I am glad we are getting a Vizsla (: 4w
  •   isadora.g I think the vizsla is the best choice, my sister in law has one and I am so jealous of her dog. They are the most elegant dogs I've ever seen, just stunning looking dogs. I am a dog enthusiast I am pretty familiar with most breeds and vizsla's top them all. It's so embarrassing how exited I get over dogs. 4w
  •   andreamful @isadora.g haha my husband and his family are dog enthusiasts too so I know what you mean. And I agree! Vizslas are so good looking! 4w
  •   lisamboyce Yessssss!!!! 4w
  •   lorenataylor How exciting! 4w

andreamful For different reasons, our family is scattered around the world during the holidays: Colombia (split in two cities), Canada, the U.S., Poland, Botswana, Switzerland, Luxembourg, and the Philippines. Making the best of it with a little help from the internet. We've had Skype calls, Facetimed, sent and received photos and videos, exchanged Facebook messages, had chats on Whatsapp, and tried for half and hour -and failed- to call a cellphone in Manila. Thankful for reliable Internet connections these past few days. 1mon

andreamful It looks like this might be the last Christmas believing in Santa One of his school friends already told him "Santa doesn't exist" and when he saw Santa at a party, he was disappointed to see "just a guy with a Santa costume". I don't know why this makes me so sad, but it does. Christmas is so much better when Santa is real! I was traumatized when I found out so I'm not looking forward to that conversation lol Do you remember when you found out? #christmasgram #onthetable #livethelittlethings 2mon
  •   andreamful @shestall same here so I know that feeling of seeing them hold on to it even though they've been told it's not true. It's so heart breaking!! 2mon
  •   andreamful @iamkatedb I'm going to tell B the same thing!!! Also, I texted you a few days ago, but today I realized it was probably an old number I had?? I had you as two different contacts. Anyway, going to copy and paste it now to the other one 2mon
  •   andreamful @laurabeardwood haha I am going to do some friendly bribing here too lol From what I see in this thread, tons of parents do it... You don't believe in Santa, you won't get presets 2mon
  •   andreamful @letargia hahaha my parents were also not the best, but I guess I was just really naive 2mon
  •   andreamful @thewojos oh, dear. We don't do anything other than Santa... No Easter bunny and still don't know if we will do tooth fairy. I guess if he knows by then about Santa, he won't be fooled about the tooth fairy. I think it's just natural curiosity to question everything, including God. I know I went through that phase too. It feels good, though, to have questioned it (as I had been taught about it) and then finally get to the conclusion, all on my own, that I do totally believe in God. It felt more like my decision and less like a decision someone made for me, you know what I mean? Maybe that the case with your teen. 2mon
  •   thewojos Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on this matter. Yup, I do want him to figure it out himself. It would be more heartfelt and meaningful. It's just shocking to hear that from your child. I've raised them by showing God's love and kindness and not about fear like I was raised. So it was quite perplexing. About Santa, we've told them as you get older, moms and dads have to help Santa with gifts. We think they buy it, but who knows. They do still go to bed early and get ready for Santa's arrival. We all grow up knowing there's no Santa, yet that magical thought of Santa amuses us and reminds us of the imagination and hope that childhood brings. It's a nice reminder. 1mon
  •   abjane17 Aw, no! B is wayyyyy too young. I haven't read all of the comments, but search for "letter to your kids about Santa" on Pinterest. It's wonderful. But my parents always said that kids only get presents if they believe. I don't remember ever really finding out...just figuring it out little by little. When I was B's age, or even a few years older, and heard other kids say Santa wasn't real, I didn't want to listen! It bugs me so much that kids ruin it for other kids. I never felt traumatized...but my husband says he did. (But he was traumatized/emotionally scarred by EVERYTHING in his childhood ) 1mon
  •   claudiavdbroek It is a pity when the magic is gone. My children keep asking me about Santa. I always tell them he goes to other countries, and that we buy the presents under the tree. Here we have Sinterklaas. Will have to tell our girl before next time. 1mon

andreamful A close-up of the #shelfie I posted yesterday. I told B I made this painting and he said: "were you going to write 'like', but ran out of ink?" I can't stop seeing an unfinished "like" after he said that! #creativityfound 2mon
  •   naomipq 2mon
  •   moderncamper Well that's adorable! 2mon
  •   tifmino Love it! So precious - my son is so intrigued by Chinese lettering and language (I'm thinking because of the martial arts connection) - he would probably say he recognized some Chinese lettering here. 2mon
  •   andreamful @pretiwari @herwelshness @cloisteredaway @sweetlukamo @naomipq @moderncamper kids! and the best part is that they mean no harm. I love that. 2mon
  •   andreamful @tifmino that's so cool! I'm intrigued too. It blows my mind seeing people write in Chinese or Japanese. It's like art! 2mon
  •   lisamboyce Kids are the best . I love seeing the updates to your place! So fresh and bright. I imagine you feel so much lighter now :) 2mon
