The Little Things

I feel the need to celebrate the *good* little things in life right now. Sometimes the *not so good* little things pile up and become overwhelming. When I look at the world through the eyes of my 2 1/2 year old girls, it is a beautiful and happy place. So here are a few of their little things, and a few of mine.

The girls love to play with pillows and cushions. Look at the immense amount of fun they are having with the cushion from the top of the toy box. Sorry about the funky glare in Vada’s eyes, the red eye tool doesn’t get rid of that.


Mmm… my girls just adore brushing their teeth. First Mommy brushes for them, then they get to have a go. Sometimes they even ask to brush at random times during the day.

Finally DONE!! Craft Hope Quilt Reveal

That’s right, I finished the Craft Hope quilt last night. I have made a few quilts in the past, but I have never hand quilted one before. I grossly underestimated how long it would take! However, the quilts are due November 14th, so I am safe. Now I know, right.

Here is the quilt on Friday, I still had nearly half to do, see all the safety pins?


To make matters worse, I woke up on Saturday feeling very under the weather. Luckily quilting is not too strenuous an activity, so I was able to sit and quilt all day. I finally finished Sunday afternoon. Here it is.

Sunday in the park with…well, not George.

OK, first I must apologize for my absentness of late. I’ve just been a bit off kilter lately. I am way behind on reading the blogs that I love, and have been a little neglectful of my blog, too. I *hope* I’m back now!

So, Sunday. Doug had seen some signs that there was to be a flea market/craft show in the park. We put the girls in the stroller and walked up the block to the park entrance.


We walked through the park and over one of the many cute little bridges.

Trick or Treat!

Just a quick post for now, to show off my Halloween Medieval Princesses.


Look at the cute little shoes! We cheated. We do medieval recreations as a hobby, so I made the dresses for the girls for an event over the summer. My mom bought them the shoes over the summer, also.

Whole Wheat Waffles Dry Mix

How my dry mix recipes work: I will give you the recipe for a batch of dry mix, and a recipe for how to use that mix. I will also list any other suggestions that go along with the mix. Feel free to cut and paste the info to make your own labels for your dry mixes. However, if you are going to post this on the internet, please be honest and give me credit, and link back to my blog rather than copying the recipe. I developed these recipes myself, and would appreciate the credit for that. Thank you.
