never bored

isn't it amazing that kids never really get bored when they are little?? probably because things like this amuse them to no end!

hope you are having as much fun today as a little boy rolling on a beach ball:)

"I love" Mondays

What I am loving...
the way the light comes in the basement windows

when judah gets into my fabric to "make a banky for melmo"

my little crafty nooks

the chaos of creating

unreal cookies!

a bowl of cheerful limes

the view

 (sidenote: Isabelle is obsessed with about three of the dresses she has-and that is all she ever wants to wear-so when you think "this must be from the other day because she is wearing the same dress" you are incorrect....she just loves to wear the same dresses again and again and again:))

So the other day we were making brownies and I realized my children had never licked the beaters before!! Can you believe it...NEVER LICKED THE BEATERS!!! Shame on me as a mother. But don't worry-we made up for lost time.
just starting out

making sure I could see it

deciding where the first lick should be

the joy of beater licking captured!!

so happy

judah is up for cheers but isabelle has moved on

the brownies after we baked them

judah climbing back to his chair-declaring he is ready to make more:)

I love when inspiration hits you so hard you fall to your knees creating. I have been there lately-so much of my world is inspiring are my lastest things. PLEASE share your latest creations...I adore a world of people creating-no matter what the level of talent. I am not an amazing artist...but I love to create. Share with me dear ones. Please share!

And speaking of sunshine...go out and enjoy it:)

I heart technology

Sitting here sipping my pipping hot (only way to have it) coffee and checking email, blogs, etc while my kiddos play behind me I just wanted to give technology some love. Thank you for making communication easier with people-mainly the hubs at work, for cooking shows now being just a click away, and blogs to inspire me coming out of every gear (not sure if that is the right term...hey..I didn't say I knew much about technology). These pictures seemed to document oh so well the journey of loving technology, thank you Judah.
sheer joy when you first get it

hoping other people notice your obviously cool gadget

getting a little squirrely about it

trying to figure out how to use the darn thing

All it takes is a few cans....

I love that children can find sheer delight in something as basic as canned goods. I mean hours of fun with something that cost me like one dollar to purchase. I love when I can sit back and watch them just create scenarios that are so complex and brilliant-but at the same time demanding laughter from the onlooker. Bottom line-kids are geniuses. We need more of them in the world-and more of us need to be like them for at least a bit of our day!
