sisters share

Someday when Isabelle and Vera are older (Lord willing) and I get all sentimental about them being so big, I will call to mind the moments I am living right now. Moments like when Isabelle insists on having "tummy time" with Vera on the floor. Sweet moments I will forever treasure....I love these two little sisters!

here and there

new apron from Grammy Clark:)
teaching Judah to do big boy work
the best chocolate chip and walnut cookies ever
who says you cannot play outside when it is raining?
still adorable as ever!
making rice crispie treats
finding anything pink she can
gearing up for football (actually wanting me to trace his hand in chalk)
needing a Sunday nap (me..not her;) )
getting our hair cut-cannot decide if I look like I am 5 or if I look sophisticated...probably somewhere in between
                         I would love to see your here and there photos of the week as well.

I have been bitten

As anyone who loves making art knows...there are times when you are just not feeling it. You have no inspiration, or time, or desire to create anything. THEN....suddenly the weather turns breezy and sunlight is shinning in the windows and all you want to do is paint, or draw or something creative ALL DAY LONG!! I have been bitten by the creative bug again and I am pulling out all my projects!! Most of them are "in the works" and need a few more things done to them. I love this time...I love feeling inspired and excited at what is to come. What is this weather making you want to do??
encaustic painting/mixed media in the works

upcycled journals needing to be bound and cut

painting needing to be placed somewhere in the house

little illustrations that I do not know what to do with

 a shelf of books that wet my artistic appetite every time!

what she wore

I must confess that sometimes I dress my kids in things I myself wish I was just always look cute in clothing-unlike adults. Today when I dressed Vera I had a tinge of jealousy....if I were her size we would so be sharing this outfit:)
hairband a gift from friend, black onesie by american apparel, tan cardigan by granimals (purchased at salvation army), gray pants by carter (purchased at salvation army)
(side note: Isabelle literally cried this morning because she said Vera looked like a boy in this outfit-once I added the hair bow she was alright though....everyone has their own distinct taste in this house, that is for sure!!)

walking should always be a family thing....unless of course me and my love sneak away for one by ourselves...just holding hands us two-that would be ok:)

snuggling and stirring

The past week and a bit of this week we had sickness. Bleh. Like..."carry this bowl with you wherever you go Isabelle" know what I mean. Luckily only Isabelle had that type of sickness...but still it does put a damper on plans. So, what is a girl mama to do? Make waffles and snuggly beds duh! And we did...we did.

Deborah Seward

I love my mom. She is one of my best friends. We talk daily...and see each other (at the least) weekly. She is wise, intelligent, hilarious, creative, beautiful, adventurous, generous, silly, fun-loving, compassionate, godly, awesome at cooking, strong, youthful, and a fabulous mother. I hit the jackpot with her...God knew. It was her birthday this weekend (59 years baby!!) and we all had a lovely time celebrating her. I love her and am so thankful to have her in my each and every day. Here's to you mom and your amazing life!!
me with my mother
