Things That Go

Like many little boys, our Mr. Shortcake has developed a fascination with all things that go! When we recently had a dumpster bag picked up from our driveway, it provided a good twenty minutes of free entertainment!

Fine Feathered Friends

One of the best features of our home is the large and established yard and outside area. We love watching the plant and animal life that is literally out our back door. Lately most of the wildlife has consisted of birds. We have blue jays, wrens, and many days we get to see the flash of scarlet that is the cardinal. The other day I looked out and saw over a dozen cardinals, both male and female in our crab apple tree. While my camera skills don't so the scene justice, here is a glimpse at some of our fine feathered friends.

Snow Day Fun

This past Tuesday we were blessed with a snow day. It really was good timing for my sake. A day at home without any running around was just what I needed.
I had stocked up on some Valentine's day crafty things from the Target dollar spot, so I gave them to the girls right away in the morning. Peachy wasted no time and got right to creating.
Since it hadn't started to snow yet, we made a quick grocery store run for some essentials like milk, peanut butter, and donuts! I let the kids keep their jamas on, which they thought was pretty cool.
We all enjoyed having Peachy home for the day. An extra lap to sit on or someone to read books is always appreciated.
It did eventually start to snow and while Shortcake slept I sent the girls out to play before the wind picked up.
And while it doesn't seem possible, having all three home all day and not having to go anywhere actually let me be more productive. I had a good sewing day and was also able to keep up on the housework. I think it was a needed break from routine for all of us!
