Handmade Toy Swap!

Bird and Little Bird is hosting a swap of handmade toys and children’s items to raise awareness about the problems caused by the CPSIA. If you’d like to participate, just e-mail Anne (birdmail AT gmail DOT com) and be sure to let her know if you’re willing to ship internationally. February 10th will be the deadline.


Read her blog post here for more details. She made Mr. Fox, pictured above, so maybe you’ll end up with something as adorable. I am not sure what I will contribute, but I'll post a pic when I do.

Have fun and support handmade!

Welcome to the World...

Our good friends Stacie and Sunny just had their 3rd child. He's so stinkin' cute I just had to share the photos I took with you all. Babies are by far my favorite thing to photograph, especially when they are brand new!

your being watched...

by a pink Eskimo spy!

Lily got off the bus today, came in the front door, grabbed her binoculars and went straight out the back door to spy in the backyard. Thanks to Amy (who had just stopped over and was being spied on) for taking such a cute pic, so I didn't have to go out in the cold!

Happy New Year! and back to the real world.

Well, it has been a very busy holiday season. We have had lots of fun, but it has been sooo busy. Rich was off work on vacation since Christmas Eve. We celebrated Christmas 4 days in a row with all of our family (one of the many joys of having divorced parents) and then felt like we needed to run away for a bit, so we spent 3 nights in our camper out on the farm. We managed to stay pretty warm and came home feeling a little recuperated. We have also been battling colds and sore throats, so that has taken it's toll. We spent a couple days at home resting and trying to kick the sickness, then yesterday we went to a hotel to swim, play and celebrate my mom's birthday. It was fun. It was all fun, but I am ready to get back to our normal routine. I am ready for the girls to go back to school tomorrow and I am ready for Rich to go back to work. :)
