As the weekend at Burgess Tree Farm wound down, Maeve and I found time for an adventure. A little bit of snow and this little girl headed for the ‘river’ made for a great walk together; we even stopped to pick flowers:
My grandmother (grammy D), had the foresight to knit a baby blanket and a baby sweater for me to put in my hope chest when I was in high school. Here is Maeve, who generally does not like sweaters, wearing this one (a LOT!) from her great grammy D.
Doc McMaeve, doctoring her stuffed animals in her ‘clinic’. Here Nemo is getting a tail cast:
She loves ribbon and cutting, however her kid friendly scissors are not really up to this challenge:
I recently referred to an incident with Maeve’s dolly stroller – here is the low down: John ran over it. Crushed it. For a few days, Maeve didn’t notice/ask for it, but when she did, and we told her what happened, she was ABSOLUTELY devastated. She pleaded with us ‘but I like broken things’ she says. So, John worked his magic and brought this dolly stroller back to life. If you look closely, you will see the sides of the stroller are held together with black apoxy, the seat material is connected with plastic zip ties, and if you had the pleasure of trying to use this resurrected stroller, you would notice that one of the wheels does not turn and they are not level. However, we have one happy little girl:
We recently gathered to honor the memory of John’s Aunt Jean. We had a lovely time together with family and friends, I hope she would have liked it. Here are a few photos I found of her, from our wedding in 2009.
This year we decided to beat the cold and have our family photos taken earlier in the year (usually it is thanksgiving week and it is FREEZING). This year we picked a sunny, foliage filled, October day – here are some of my favorites.
The whole fam-damily (well, not quite. Rachael couldn’t make it):
A little yoga action:
Maeve and Me:
Thanks Caitlyn for another set of great photos!
Well, the camera did not make it out much this week, but luckily my trusty phone did!
Ultimately I made pear bread, pear and butternut squash soup, and this pear, caramelized and gorgonzola pizza (all I can say is YUM!):
I cast on for some peekaboo finger-less mitts (for me I think), yarn from my stash – hope spinnery I am quite sure:
And we have had some milestones in the world of Maeve this week! No more crib and she moved to the next size up car seat – all sorts of ‘big girl’ things happening for her.
With her doggie:
