Before the storm hits...

I can tell that my little one is feeling a bit under the weather, and if attitude is any indicator, my toddler is about to succumb as well.   I'm looking forward to slowing down for a few days, snuggling in and doing nothing but reading Little House books and holding my babies tight.  I know that my life already seems a lot slower than others,  but I tend to get ahead of myself and not take time to rest and renew with my little people.  Before I retreat to my cave of midwinter mommy-ing, I thought I'd share a few pictures from the last few days...

A little nature tray.  Not a great photo.  Some of the contributions are older, some more recent.  All discoveries by the kids.

Giving dead bananas new life!  Banana bread is a huge favorite around here.

My girls and I made this out of scraps from the fabric for our quilt.  It only took about an hour, we didn't measure anything...just let it be perfectly imperfect.  I love it.  The best part was letting the girls pick the order of the fabrics and holding little F on my lap while sewing it on the machine.


  1. Love the nature finds! And the pretty pillow. Bananas often transform into bread around here too. We almost like the bread more than the bananas themselves! Hope everyone gets well soon but enjoy curling up with them while they are on the mend.

  2. That pillow is ADORABLE! I wish I had your skills woman! BTW I miss you!!

  3. That is an awesome pillow! You have to hang out with Hannah and rub off on her ;) We have some sick kids here too :( I hope yours are better soon!

  4. Such a sweet pillow! That is what I should do with my scraps, great idea :)
    You know, I have been hibernating (broke out today) and it has been divine. Simply divine. We are currently reading Charlotte's Web. I must admit though, I am a bit "over" the story as they have been wantign to watch the old cartoon alot recently. I'd love to mover over to Little House.

  5. I love banana bread! I hope you rest and recuperate. And what a memory you made with that pillow. I know your girls loved helping with that one!
