Fall coming on...crafty

September means-new pics on out wall of fame in the kitchen!

Finn and Wren hard at work on their fall picture...

one of the little super hero ladies painted while at the cabin. I am calling them the "Super Domestics" for now..any other suggestions??

A few wishing wands to sell at the Farmer's market...

We have had such great days in this early fall...found a few community apple trees to harvest, had a number of great friends help get all our winter wood, made stew and pies, taking walks in the bluest brightest skies.
Where does all the Autumn energy to create come from???
Not sure..but...
Definately my very favourite season.

oh Hello!

Thought I should maybe write a few lines seeing as a VERY VERY exciting bit of events took place here not so long ago.
While on an overnight visit to Kootenay Lake: my Son Finn (at the ripe old age of "four and a quarter" as he says) Learned to ride his two wheeler!

We his parents are ridiculously proud. Really, its almost unbearable!

Visitors, swingsets and bucket heads

We have inherited a pretty amazing Play structure from our neighbours (2 doors east).
Every small child that come through the gate is quite delighted. AS are we!
Here we document the journey-we enlisted a few other neighbours to help out in the process...

And also-we have had a little fetish with putting large things on our heads...

Opa and Omi came out for a visit for 4 days and we had a great time hanging out together. Many good story times, and of course the "meal out"...One at a restaurant, and one down by the river..

And then Mike and I went out on a Mother's Day'/ 30th Birthday Night Out..and I got to get all dressed up...and so i had found a new violet dress for the occasion..seen here below..sorta.

Drawing by Finn

A drawing Finn did in the morning of Mike and I and Finn's beloved "happy love" stuffed animal. I think it is rather great. Especially on account of my hair and Mike's absolutely PERFECT red glasses!

2 little hippies jumping on the bed!

New Word

Wren's word for Unicorns (which she was introduced to the other day ) is

"Corn Ponies".

pretty clever, says I.

Mike says-that's a great name for a band.
Funny little kids.

A Spring Makeover and other small events

On a very sunny friday afternoon last week, with nothing but SPA on the brain, my Friend Leanne and I made our way to get facials at a local woman's home. We had such a wonderful time...and ended up deciding...a little make up might be fun every once in a while.

My recently turned 4 year old has decided-getting wood is a job he likes to do. Seen here as before and after (note: kid sized working gloves!!!)

Not to be left out..her is Wrenny at a baby shower we attended last week. Also in attendance was a friend who took these beautiful shots of my Wren in action!

Cousins upon cousins upon cousins

We have had a wonderful week of cousins and Aunties just now.
Both my sisters came for a few nights last week..and after a brief intermission, my mother and brother in law and nephew came for the weekend.
This week, things seem oddly quiet.
chaos and quiet back to back is a lovely excersice in contrast.
And I don't mind either, really.

Tomi (2) wren (2.5) Kai (3) and Finn (4)

Here is where they all "slept".

Tomi is enamoured with her Lenin Shades.

Skye and my two enjoy the weekend movie...

...and a nightly story or two

Skye and Finn build a "house" in the backyard-with ALL the outside toys...
perfect to be hauled to the dump-says I!
