Mother’s Day love from 8 grandchildren:
When it’s snowing in April – significantly more than a dusting – make cake!
My design, drawn from my mom’s garden, in Spoonflower double gauze.
From the boys:
Eily’s Plasticine warbler:
Cake for breakfast? Don’t mind if I do.
It goes down easier when it’s chock full of veggies. (And still tastes delicious.)
This is one for the recipe box, but I think we’ll rename it “Outrageous Chocolate Cake”.
Even with Halloween over, we can’t seem to turn the hat back into a balaclava.
Eily made a bracelet on the kid’s loom.
Gabe turned 6 this summer. When we held him a party in the fall, I made initialized capes for the guests (instead of grab bags). They were cut from old tshirts, while keeping the original neckline. It was a simple craft with a pretty great outcome.
We added our little library to the boulevard last weekend, in amongst the plants where Brett has been naturalizing.
Eily and Gabe each painted a side (a sunflower and fireworks, respectively) and they asked me to add the leafy garland around the door. I also painted the five trees on the back.
