Life around here lately.

Making cookies for best friends.

Playing with new Webkinz bought with a little spending money. (That's Tigey the Tiger Snake.)

Building a new Indiana Jones LEGO set.

Building more LEGOS!

Making amazingly intricate LEGO worlds out of the millions of cool little pieces in their stash. (My mom bought the kids this cool set of people and it has proved to be a real winner - highly played with. Secretly, I knew it would be.)

Finishing a pretty pink skirt for a pretty little girl. (Made it with this WONDERFUL tutorial! Easy as pie and so well finished off. Love it. Will definitely make more.)

Trying on our new Ron Jon Surf Shop shirts/necklace from our loving Aunt Jamie.

Embroidering names on fabric and making little pillows after learning about Medieval tapestries in our Artistic Pursuits book. (Great job Jacob and Nicole - they had so much fun and worked so hard. With a little help from a nice long nap from Mikey we got it done in an afternoon.)

This is the stuff of days. These days are wildly exhausting, mighty frustrating at times and super crazy, but they are blessed days - happy and blessed beyond measure.

Celeste, I loved this post so much. I know I'm late in commenting, but it still makes me smile every time I click over and see all of your happy children! :)

That skirt is absolutely darling. I sooo want a sewing machine...Christmas isn't too far off, maybe Santa will be nice! ;)
