grateful friday...



this week i am grateful for someone else to take pictures of the children. someone very good at taking pictures. i am grateful not only for the quality though, but also for getting to see my children through someone else eyes (thanks angela!). little moments i missed, during a lovely weekend in the mountains courtesy of some very generous friends. the kids had so much fun... especially sidney, who got to show off her glamor girl side for a change (even with food on her face, now that is an accomplishment).

i'm also grateful this week has passed, because "phew", it was a long one. the weekend in the mountains resulted in coming home sick. not so fun. we were stuck inside while outside was so beautiful. i did manage a bit of gardening, and my herb garden is coming along well. this weekend is back to sewing! i know you don't believe me, but i promise... as long as no one else gets sick.


happy weekend! check out my treasury, "what's old is new again", on etsy for some wonderful etsy finds... (have you seen the new treasury east? fun!)

I hope you are all starting to feel better! (oh, and the 6 year old digs your son's shirt....wait sorry, apparently I misspoke. that was the "almost seven in 3 months 6 year old". he just wanted to make sure that was corrected)

yeah, cary, that was called something like "six and five eighths and three quarters" in your household, right!

those pictures are gorgeous! (of course those kids always look pretty darn cute :) and, i am addicted to treasury east, i believe. i made two in one day...

Gorgeous photography! Ah yes, remember when JH was six and 3 quarters and five dimes --- so tired of being six and a half. But,WAIT!! JH is now SEVEN and a quarter and a dime!
