This Moment

{this moment} – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you’re inspired to do the same, leave a link to your ‘moment’ in the comments for all to find and see.

September, reporting late

Posted by on Oct 27, 2010 in Uncategorized | No Comments

The September SSS block was completed in September, but it’s taken me until tonight to get a photo snapped for you guys. Here it is; October is coming right along. I only have 2 more blocks to knit after the October block that I will finish this week. I would be starting to wonder what […]

Fall: The Pumpkin Race

Posted by on Oct 26, 2010 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Hubby had a wedding this past Saturday and was unable to participate in the pumpkin race. This is quickly becoming an annual tradition for us, and while we never end up winning, we have a blast building and racing. The day of the race brings not just racing pumpkins, but crafts and an amazing, long, […]

My View

This is what I see when I look down most of the time. The belly, of course, is always there. The tiny 2 year old hands begging for mama to pick him up, while frequent, do take breaks when he is being held or playing or otherwise occupied. I love the fact that he likes […]

Cracker Bread

I know it looks yummy, but please, please, please don’t try this one at home. Only from the mind of a four year old do you get turning crackers into bread! He declared one day that he wanted to make cracker bread. And he decreed that it would be made of 6 cups of crakcers, […]

Fall Means: Leaves

There really is nothing like two little boys, a rake, and a whole bunch of leaves. I am certain that we will be doing this again soon; there are still a TON of leaves on the big maple out back. I do think that the piles are just going to get bigger!

Fall Means: Pumpkins

Posted by on Oct 20, 2010 in Uncategorized | No Comments

We took the boys to the pumpkin patch yesterday, and we all had a whole ton of fun! We’ll be carving our haul up soon, and I’ll post pics as soon as I have them. The boys both fell into bed exhausted last night; too bad their pregnant mama was up half the night… Here’s […]

Chocolate Sugar Cookies

Posted by on Oct 18, 2010 in Uncategorized | 3 Comments

We have a nasty post little boy bedtime habit around here: cookies. It’s not every night, mind you, but, honestly, I think it is most nights. I make a batch of dough once a week or so, and we store it in the fridge, baking only what we “need” each night. Although, most nights we […]

Dyeing, Naturally

I took both the boys and three pairs of scissors out into the garden to cut marigold heads a few days ago. They had a blast trimming the flowers for me! Then I boiled the flowers down and added mordanted (with alum and cream of tartar) silk. I am THRILLED with the results: I followed […]

Take me out to the…

…t-ball game. The boys are having a blast playing ball and running the bases these days.
