settling in

As winter wraps around us, we are settling in for the quiet and cold. Reading, knitting, sewing and cooking is occupying my evening free time, while John is working to get the furnace going in his new shop.
Lizzie and Griffin in an uneasy truce:)

Lizzie at the Grocery Store - having fun 'driving'!

Griffin liking the col

and keeping watch at Evolo

holidays 2009

Only a few photos to show from our fantastic holiday adventures. Guess I was having to much fun to take the camera out.
This ended up being one of the most memorable made gifts of the year. My sister, Em, has a tradition of doing origami with money as a made gift for my brother day. This year, as the story goes, was a bit challenging and after several attempts and much frustration she ended up making origami money 'beach towels'. Hilarious!

Mom, Ryan & Em

Dad and the traditional first gift, CANDY!

the fabric became....

Tea Towels! The fabric was really fun to pair up and work with...

I didn't do a good job of photographing any of my other made gifts, oh well!
