Today Gavin and I snuck in a little lunch note for dad just to put a smile on his face. It worked! Justin called be and said it was very nice! Little does he know he will be getting one from Lily soon too! I love adding surprises like this once in a while, I even do it for Gavin and Lily just so they know I'm thinking of them!

For lunch today we went to a bagel shop on church street, ever since my loves started eating bagels and cream cheese this has been a fav. thing for us to do! As you can see they are enjoying it!

homemade Popsicle memory played on the stove (of course)


Box play again! When you have a crank baby break out a big box - works every time!


Once the kids went to bed I made this on recycled paper and absolutely love it. Now I need to find a place to put it but if you want to make something like it head over to Simply Sweet Home and print your own!

Tonight I'm exhausted, I'm not really sure why. I think this cold just kicked my butt. I'm definitely getting better thought. Gavin and Soren are also better however Soren did have a low fever today and was still cranky. I hope tomorrow we are all almost 100% better!

Today I had a lot to mail and tomorrow I do to but Im glad to get some of it out and I was also glad to ahve a helper

I wanted to take the camera with me a few times today and forgot it. Bummer. OH well I did get this silly shot of Lily's nails

This is the first time she has let me do more than one color on all of them and then she decided i could make polka dots. It was fun! And she could not wait to show daddy! Lily likes to follow "fashion" so she says. But I think here she is stepping out a bit and I like that she is showing off herself a bit more these days :)

Gavin was to busy for pictures today he had homework and Lego to play with before playing with daddy. Then he and Lily played "library" in their room with the door closed while I gave Soren a bath. He's getting crazy in the bath lately. YIKES.

Now they are all sleeping Im enjoying a beer and going to bed myself. Night!

Busy Sicklings

Right now if you walk into my room this is what you will find. My sick baby finally resting after a long hard day. Poor Soren has a cold a pretty nasty one. He's having trouble breathing out of his nose making nursing nearly impossible, but after some steam and saline drops he finally was able to rest.

We started the day switching the books up. The weather is changing the air is crisp and my favorite time of year is upon us. So we got out some of the fall and Halloween books, Lily loves this task every time we do it!


She was not so happy when Soren wanted to help out but get the job done and was proud of her choices even the few barbie books she snuck in :)

Today since Soren is sick (along with Gavin and I) he is not so happy and I decided some fresh air would do us some good. Gavin brought his scooter while I pushed Soren and Lily in the stroller. We went to feed the ducks



petting a dog ,


Much later in the day after we all rested and ate we went back out Gavin really wanted t watch the skateboarders, he wants a skateboard more than anything right now, "a skull one" he says. Many times a week he goes to watch the skateboarders and then plays with his scooter at the skate park. Lily also does some riding around but she is MUCH more cautious. Gavin scares the crap out of me.


Then we ended the day with take out pizza because there was not way I could cook with a sick baby, some playing and bed. I'm going in early tonight. I'm exhausted!

The Story

Well, I hope this all works out. Im the creator of all things crafty over at www.crunchycrafts.etsy.com however I have not been crafty for the shop for a while. Well since mid pregnancy with my third child. Now Im back in action starting October 1st so look for my new work soon. Until then you can see previews on my craft blog. For a bit I was using it for pictures but have since decided they needed a new home, so here we are a home for my daily pictures and occasionally some hints to my etsy shop.

Enjoy!

Enjoying the sun!
