keeping us busy...



well there is never a dull moment in this family i will say that much. Miss. A was in fine form this weekend. on saturday we had a wedding to go to and Miss. A was off to an overnight trip to the grandparents house. this made for quite an exciting saturday morning as we tried to fit everything that needed to be done into a few short hours.

Daniel was having a bit of fun playing with Miss. A while i finished up the last bit of work on part of the wedding gift. i had envisioned these napkins for some time but then guests were around and i never actually got a chance to start them. two days before they needed to be wrapped i finally put needle to fabric. i was quite pleased with the end result and i now want to embelish a few more things around the house or for Christmas gifts.



well onto the wonderful entertainment of Miss. A. while i was working fervently on my project they were down the hall making skates. i stuck my head out the door of my studio and down the hall came the two of them. Miss. A with two cars rubber banded to her feet with Daniel pushing her.


we are a bit creative around here or at least he is.

later that afternoon as Daniel was shooting some photos in the basement i decided to take a shower while Miss. A entertained herself in the bathroom. about half way through this event i looked down and there she was climbing into the tub getting wet on the way in. there was not much i could do but let her play while i attempted to get Daniel's attention from the basement. it was all quite amusing watching her play in the tub PJ's, slippers and all. of course he came camera in hand ready to document the event.



we had a wonderful evening at the wedding. the rain parted and the sun came out just as the recession started. it was another amazing wedding but the final one for the year that we know of. we are on to the next adventure.

Ok, your entire blog today completely made my morning! Not only did the strap-in-the-mouth skater get an audible chuckle out of me, but then I am ambushed with the hilarity of Miss A in the shower completely dressed! Have you ever noticed how seeing someone elses child do these kooky things makes you appreciate your own kids' mishaps? It's like a reminder to stop all of the drudgery and enjoy their wacky ways! Thanks!
