Project 52-8 and a Pop-Pop Morning

This week (since I forgot the Sunday morning photo) I got pictures of the kids on Wednesday with Pop-Pop.  He was such a good sport.  He held them, read to them, loved them.

And they loved him back!  He even watched a video with Stella.  I remember cuddling with him on the sofa and watching cartoons when I was a little girl, so it was fun to see Stella have that experience too.

When headbutting is a good thing!

I love to watch Sid and Stella play together. It's so sweet to watch their relationship develop.
 But I Have to admit, that my favorite thing is when they give kisses for goodnight, or goodbye.
 Sid will say something along the lines of "I want my Kisses."  So Stella kisses one cheek,
 Then the other, and then his nose.
 Finally, they bump foreheads and say "BONK."  I melt every time.  It's so cute.  So, in our house headbutting is a good thing.  It is also sweet to see Stella gently (usually!) give Bruce bonks.
In her mind I'm sure it's an expression of love!  Every now and then I also get bonks.  They're fun and sweet.  I'll take them. 

Most of these pictures are from last spring or summer.

Hair Clips!

The other night I was playing with felt, and made some cute little hair clips for Stella. 
Just because I could.  I love the way they turned out! And so did she!  She couldn't wait to wear them.
I am so pleased at how they turned out, and how cute they look in her hair.  I got the idea from here at made.


Here's a sneak peak of my next project.  Coming soon!

Winter wonderland

 I love the way that trees look when the branches have a thick coat of ice all the way around the branches. 

 Unfortunately is hard to get really good shots of them with out leaving the porch, or your living room.

Of course, there is a dark side to ice covered trees.  Downed branches.  They were everywhere on our block.  This was the big one.  Right in the middle of the street.

 It all got cleaned up. The road is passable.

And tonight I am especially thankful that we have a nice warm house to be all cozied up in.


Bruce woke up early from his nap today.  He was in a good mood and so I grabbed my camera. He was unusually cooperative, but he had my full attention since Stella was still sleeping.  I couldn't help but snag and post a few pictures of my rapidly growing boy!Enjoy them!

So proud of himself, for getting up on the step, and trying to get up the stairs!

My happy guy! A smile when I'm not holding him!

Hey, look,  I crawled up your leg!

Yeah, I'm cool.  Too bad his eyes aren't open in this one!

The slightly-elusive-but-oh-so-fun laugh.  I got it by pushing him in the chest every time he leaned forward.  What a boy! What a joy!
