baa baa black sheep

The day started with a little reading. One of his favorites. Baa Baa Black Sheep. It was rather appropriate as we spent the morning visiting with some new baby lambs and their mamas.

It was fiber weekend up here and our local yarn store was having an open house and also a junior fiber show. William had entered his needle felted sprites and received a second place ribbon and prizes that he is very excited about. Some wool roving, a 10% off coupon for more supplies and a free Creemee (something similar to soft serve ice cream).

We continued our day taking a scenic drive- this was the first time we were all in a car together since Issabelle was born. We finally got a car that fits us all. The day ended at Ben and Jerry's for some real ice cream. I don't do the whole Creemee thing.

It was a nice family outing.

in her hands

Issabelle is totally holding things all by herself now. Of course they all go right to the mouth. She has a pretty strong grasp. If she gets your hair or shirt it is hard to get her to let go.

Oh, she looks so big.  31/2 months already!!! Time needs to slow down- or else I do and just need to hold her more than I already do.

the wonder of play

So much fun just to stand back and watch Harkin discover things on his own.  He was having so much fun with the big blue ball.

old school art

The Spirograph!! I had one of these as a kid. When I saw the deal on Woot I had to get it for the boys. They were looking for something to do one morning so I brought it out. It was a huge hit. They spent the morning making Spirograph art and using the paint spinner. I love seeing them get so excited about little things. They continued to make more in the afternoon. Now we have quite a collection of circles hanging up around the house.

hot days

We had some pretty hot days last week. The boys had a great time spending the day in the kiddie pool all together. Issabelle and I watched  from the living room. This was the first time she was hanging out in a one piece shorty. Her arms, legs and toes are all so cute!

on mother's day

We spent the day at home. My boys made their Mama a nice breakfast. Fresh squeezed juice,  a healthy smoothie, a most delicious yogurt parfait and chocolate chip scones.

Then there was work to be done so we can stay warm in the winter. Always looking ahead. The rest of the day it rained.  We played a game, knitted a bit and just relaxed. Eric made a big dinner with lots of yummy food. I haven't been sleeping so well lately so I was off to bed early. But this is where I love to be... home with my family.
