{Family Sketchbook Project}

DSC_0068My girl Miranda had this terrific idea. Chase is the big doodler at our house but, who knows, maybe I’ll be inspired to pick up a pencil. I’m looking forward to featuring her work here on Wednesdays and watching her work progress and grow. Will you watch with me? Or maybe you have a doodler at your house too. Maybe it’s you.

Right now, Chase is into “teaching” Avery. This often involves making her coloring pages or worksheets to do. Usually, Avery couldn’t care less but recently she took time to work on something that her sister made for her. It’s a collaborative piece and so I’m using it to kick off our {Family Sketchbook Project}. I found something else that I tucked away to share later. Can you tell I’m super excited about this?

I wish the pictures weren’t so grainy but the battery in my camera is dead. Besides, it’s just Tuesday.

A Day

That’s “ay” day as in Avery’s first day without Chase at home in what must seem like an eternity in kid time. She dressed up (her power’s in her fingers). Read the rest of this entry »

What A Big Day

The girls have been waiting forever to visit Santa. We finally, finally did it this afternoon. Santa and hair cuts and the train garden. So much fun!

There was no line for Santa, nobody cried, that was the easy part. The hard part was taking Avery for her first hair cut. I just really did not want to do it. Finally though I realized that it probably not any better for the yogurt crusted hair to just break off than for it to be cut by a professional and so now she sort of has bangs. Nothing drastic. I won’t lie. I was a little jealous of all the pampering they got. Soon though. Soon it will be my turn. Soon.

I shouldn’t talk it up too much. You can hardly tell but it was such a big deal for me. I should have gotten the lollipop. It’s ok though it seems that most of Avery’s curls survived.

More Fall

Today the kids made the smallest leaf pile in the world and jumped into it. The leaves are falling, we’ve got pumpkins, we’ve been apple picking and we’ve got Halloween costumes and all in spite of the fact that I found the weather today to be unpleasantly warm for the season.  Read the rest of this entry »

That Girl

Lately? She refuses to wear most pants. She thinks jeans are stupid and sometimes that’s inconvenient. When she’s not carrying on like a crazy person about her pants she tries to be very, very helpful with her sister. That pretty much sums up most days. Read the rest of this entry »

With Tasey back at school Avery and Bennett are spending a lot of time together. I like watching them interact. I don’t have to watch Avery quite so much like a hawk around Bennett anymore and I’m pretty sure she asks me to put the baby down less than Chase did (about Avery). They seem to like each other. For now.

Plum Season

It’s here! I asked the guy how long he’d have them and he thought maybe into next week but they’re already dwindling. Italian prune plums have such a small window and so few farmers grow them. They’re probably a fickle fruit. Only a fickle fruit would be this tasty.  Read the rest of this entry »

Baby Yawns Are The Cutest

We made it through our first day at home all together!  We played in a box, compared toes and all the while felt like that giant baby yawn (only way less cute) but we survived. Read the rest of this entry »

Home Again

For the first time ever I stayed the entire recovery period in the hospital.  Man, but I did miss home.  Did I ever miss my bed.  I didn’t realize it until I crawled under the covers for a nap this afternoon.  Hoo boy.  Good bed. Read the rest of this entry »
