Did you notice these two patterns in my Round Up a few months ago? Oh my adorable… I have a real thing for animal hats and I feel like the time I have to make them for my kids is running out! Pretty soon they’re going to think they’re too old and cool for these […]

The hubbs took the whole week between Christmas and New Year’s off so we played A LOT. Playing with Dad around is always so much more fun. At our house Dad is the one who usually does the science ¬†experiments, etc. with the kids. I just don’t have enough extra energy…it’s a great thing for […]

I am still knitting like crazy. It’s such a great winter pasttime, I’m totally loving it AND all my favorite new patterns, especially this Lucy hat. The shop is called Fiddlestyx Studios and she makes this hat up in “girl” colors but I loved it for a boy hat with all the texture and randomness. […]

This one is the Diamond Weave pattern and I LOVE the beautiful texture she creates in her patterns. This one is so adorable, easy, and fun to […]

Most recently we picked up Ian Fleming’s modern classic, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. This anniversary edition is beautiful with thick glossy paper, fun illustrations, and a […]

9. Bohnanza We got this game for Christmas last year and have played it gobs of times since then. It’s made by Rio Grande and they usually come out with pretty fun games but sometimes they’re very long, complicated, and require so much strategy to ever have hope of winning.

I just got my box of Zaycon chicken last week – 40 pounds of chicken with no added hormones, additives, or artificial ingredients, fresh from the processor. I’ve used my chicken in lots of different ways: canned – I love having canned chicken on hand, but I still have plenty from the last time flash […]
