lots of little things

Life has busy around here of late. Three weeks of school holidays will do that! I sat down to write this post and had to really think about what has been happening in my life. Lots of outings with my boys, movies, hot chocolates and kicking around the soccer ball at the park.

some crafty projects....

a little bit of weaving inspired by a book a friend lent me. I found this gorgeous bamboo/cotton blend yarn from spotlight of all places. I will post the completed item up when I decide what it will be!
felt clips make from hand painted wool felt for the little girl in the family
and a half completed crown. I remember making the boys a kings crown each when they were in kindy.
the little one in the family turned 18 months a couple of weeks ago. Even though see is not a little baby anymore, we are all still so much in awe of her. To watch her brothers with her is so special and I won't even mention her Daddy's devotion.... that is a whole other post!
proof that a big brother can still love a wet and tired grumpy little sister.
and stumbling across Whyatt and Grace the other day. Snuggled up in a corner of my bedroom reading one of my favourite golden books . My heart melts when I see beautiful connections like these. So I peep around the corner, quietly snap a photo and left so their reading and sharing time could continue.
Yes, it's been a lovely few weeks and the days have been filled with lots of little things.
