wednesday's magic

more barbie tools

more human-body sculpting

and even more creating.

(by Trevelyn, of course.)

with holiday tunes.

"Unicorns and Tyrannosauruses don't really get along very well,"
"Because one's like a rainbow, and irritates the other?  And the other is a fierce meat eater and might eat him up?"
"Yup," says She.

Mama sniffles.

it's time for his yearly growth spurt, so I imagine we'll have another mark, soon.

sugar cookie dough.

a new art gallery (a new Collection wall)

a zipline.  I have to say, this was an odd one (she's made several, you know).  it involved a shirt, a box, and a hanger.  and no line.  ???

parachuting nekked dolls.
with laughter.  :)

lion play.

mad, happy gallops through the kitchen (my home base today).

"So tomorrow is the first day of winter?"
"Well... in the U.S., Solstice is officially the first day of winter.  But our Decembers are pretty wintry, so I would say that tomorrow can be considered the first day of winter.  It's the first day of December."
"So that means it's gonna snow tomorrow!!"
Well... clouds are comin'.  We can hope!

chocolate chip cookies.

aaaand sugar cookies.

I found myself with tender hands... the day having kept them busy in soapy water, paper, and flour... and since I have a witch's wand I made a quick batch of lotion bars.  (I added a little tangerine essential oil this time.. mmmm!)

our Fourth finally arrived home.
always a wonderful event, that- Daddy coming home.

and a new Favorite Art Piece was created (Mama's favorite).  it's a self portrait.

there wasn't too much about our day that was spectacular, yet it was a wonderful day.  much of the day was spent with all of us in the same room, talking, playing, sharing, communicating...
close and connected.

which is perfect, because it's why we choose to have a family, hmm?
to have our hearts always be warm, to keep close, and to love. 

here's to lots more warm-on-the-inside days.


  1. All good fun!

    Have a lovely day!

  2. Dang, it's a good time of the year! I can't wait to see all the goodness you guys get into. ;)

  3. I just love reading your days. I finally caught up with three posts at our place! Busy lives. Good lives.

  4. "which is perfect, because it's why we choose to have a family, hmm?
    to have our hearts always be warm, to keep close, and to love."

    Exactly :)

    I love reading through your days, they are so full with warmth, connection, creativity and fun!!!

    Thank you for helping me to remember the important things :)

  5. Love small hands with huge sharp knives, and nekked dolls flying through the air. Very nice!

  6. Lovely snowflakes.

    Close and connected,

    and yes to having lots more warm-on-the-inside days.

    Happy Winter :)

  7. Oh dear, that self portrait is simply darling-D.A.R.L.I.N.G.
