I wish I had a few more (uninterrupted) hours in each day to spend time on crafts and projects, like these little wood color matching peg dolls I made for Kylie. As much as I love a more complex, labor intensive project, I almost enjoy something as simple as this even more- especially since I completed it during the course of just two of her naps. How cute are these?
just finished up his first year as a Cubbie at Awana Club! I honestly
wasn't so sure we'd make it until the end because he got pretty sad when
I left him for the first few weeks (back in August). After the first
month, it was smooth sailing and he couldn't wait to see his friends and
teachers each Sunday!
My little Kylie
has developed the curliest little blonde hair these last few months. It
must be the humid weather- but I'm loving her curly tendrils. When I
was pregnant with her, I wished for a baby who looked just like Cameron-
one with dark eyes, dark features and dark hair. God must have laughed when I said that because she's the complete
opposite with her light blue eyes and light golden hair. Really, I
think the only similarity between them is their skin tone and nose. But
darn it, they are both so stinkin' cute.
sad note, we lost our duck Cinco last week. Now that they are full
grown, we've been letting them out during the day to roam as they
please. They always stay together, mostly staying around our house with
the occasional dip into the lake. We came home one day and Cinco was
missing, so we're pretty sure he was taken by a snapping turtle. This
was just a few days after an incident where Howard was attacked (again,
most likely by a turtle) and got part of his upper bill torn off. It was
pretty awful looking at first but he is much better and seems to be
thriving as much as the others. I wish we could always protect them!
