Christmas Window

The boys and I made this little winter village for our big front window.

Joe and I cut ours free-hand and the little boys drew their houses and I cut them out.

I also spent an evening making this advent calendar to hang in the window.  It's filled with little treats and trinkets.  I stole both of these ideas from Pinterest:  the houses and the advent calendar

Christmas is coming!  YAY!

There's been a lot of mending lately... 

With breaks for nursing of course...

I like the lesson in mending, and there's plenty of opportunity because the pile of pants needing patches is never ending around here.

For Their Future

So that they can know peace

So that they can marry whomever they love

So that their daughters and wives have a right to choose

 So that education isn't something reserved for the wealthy

So their environment is protected, so that immigrants are welcomed, so that gun ownership is devalued and health care is a right


Yes I Took Pictures of The First Day of School. What Do You Think I Am, Some Sort Of Non-First-Day-Of-School-Picture-Taker?

Joe's first day of Second Grade...


 And Matthew's first day of Kindergarten...
