Stickers and Bubbles

(of course, a bike helmet is most necessary for making bubbles...)

2.9.2011 - Three Generations

In my reorganizing of Beniam's room the other day, I came upon a book that had belonged to Chris when he was little. It even had his name written inside in his mother's handwriting. How precious!
Chris was at a meeting, so at bedtime Beniam and I read "The Bear's Vacation," and he loved it. And then, joy of all joys, Dada and Papa (Chris' dad) showed up and Papa read it to him again. Our little boy is so loved...can you tell?

I should also mention that Chris and his dad share a fondness for books and reading. You could say it is their "one weakness" (name that show!) fun to see this being passed down to Beniam. We can hopefully assume that his taste in literature will mature ;)

(Forgive the lighting or lack thereof...)

2.7.2011 - Labor of Love

My sister-in-law is due to have her baby girl, Zoie, in about 3 weeks and I am finally starting a baby quilt for her. I am just about novice as you get, learning as I go. I have made quilts for each of my kiddies, and I love them, despite their flaws. You can see Evangeline's in the picture.

Here she is, happily playing with fabric scraps.
