things have been pretty boring around here. standard kid stuff. he’s way too many pictures to document our lack of anything exciting… the first of many hazel pictures. naturally. sad sad anna, after we told her about lucy killing our favorite chicken, tina fey. i had to promise her we would get more chickens. we […]
it’s a well known fact that i don’t buy my kids new clothes. well, occasionally, i encounter something that i can’t pass up. but, mostly, my kids are clad in hand-me-downs, megathrift finds and consignment sale clothings. this friday, after i dropped ike off at school, i carted anna off to a local preschool and […]
ike’s first field trip and a christmas bow tie.
isaac is going on his very first ever field trip with his preschool class today. they are going to ardmore moravian church and having a candle tea party or something. in the instructions, his teacher said to wear “church” or “christmas” attire. so, isaac and i reviewed his closet. of course, he wanted to wear […]
charlie brown christmas

finally, the last in my series of posts about anna’s birthday party… i made these two things for her to wear to her rainbow-ific event. 1) a rainbow bib to smear rainbow cake all over. i used leftover fabric from her quilt (and some from ike’s quilt). and manhandled my worst binding job ever. but, […]
