In the Leafy Treetops

We have a nest with hungry baby birds in the front yard. Kids are appropriately enthralled :)

Kitchen Helpers

Sure was nice to have such good helpers while Nick was at High adventure last week!
Lu did the pizza almost all by herself!
Meanwhile, Calvin invented something e calls "banana slice." (Bananas, graham crackers, and water.)

Sewing Sabbath

I made my first self-binding baby blanket today to bring to Father Javier. My goal is to make 3 before I go to Albuquerque.
The lady in the tutorial said it was a 10-minute project ... For me it was more like 60 :) But a lot of that was just figuring things out. I bet the next one goes quicker.

And check out those mitred corners :)

Pillow time

Made the first for a graduating senior who loves pastels; the second for Calvin Jesse who insisted I make him one too when he saw the first :)

Straight A Honor Roll!

Congrats to our Lucy, who made a goal to be on the straight A Honor roll at the beginning of the year--today she received her award!

Dads rule

Especially when they are as awesome as Mr Nick :)




Heading into summer


I finally got all the front beds weeded and mulched and spread some fresh pea gravel. I love how pretty everything is right now!
Even the side beds aren't looking to bad now. Wait, here's a better picture:
He's such a "helper" :)
