New Skirt

Testing a pattern for a friend at dittyPop.
This when finished will be called the Marigold Skirt. Tricia (pattern designer) is still working some kinks out of the length measurements, but it will be hopefully ready soon.


A great fun pattern, with fabric choices it can be really cute and funky or very sweet and feminine.

Lego Mania


Emma has lego mania, Claire wishes she could have it and she does try, but those pieces are just too small for the destructo baby.


I love the intention, and attention that Emma has for them. Patrick and Emma spent all day yesterday building and bonding. I love how it really brings them together.

Fall Planting

This weekend Patrick, and our nephew started our fall garden. Everything has sprouted well already. Patrick was really sore the ground was pretty dense, full of past plants, and dry. So excited for root vegetables to grow again.

Sweet Nap

Daddy was sick last week, and took that opportunity to get in some quality snuggle time. I must admit I was a wee bit jealous for them getting to take such a sweet nap, but them being rested was much more important.

My latest addiction is hula hooping. Call me crazy, you wouldn't be the first, but I love it. It is really a great way for me to center, and to process. Some love yoga (and I do like my yoga), but I love hooping. It is much easier for me to do with the kids. For some reason if I try yoga, they think I am creating a jungle gym. To them downward dog equals mom slide, which is just not relaxing. I built my own hoops, and we have been having such a good time.
