Night-time Ride

Picking their father up at the airport is, and always has been, an event for the children.  This was the first time the younger children saw Boston at night-time.  Normally Brian’s flights come in during daylight hours.  If they’re late flights, he generally gets a lift home from the limo service.  On this particular night, we bundled all of the kids into their jammies, packed up blankets, stuffed animals, and snacks and settled in for a fun one-hour drive to the airport.

I had Cate and Jack try their hands at snapping photos through the drizzle and at speeds faster than our shutter can manage.  But we like the results.

lighted signs looking like ribbon candy.

I wonder what Paul Revere would think of the view nowadays?

On the Needles:: Newborn Sleep Sack

The soy wool ombre reminds me of african violets. The bottom skein is called "Victorian pink" by Brown Sheep

This pattern is so quick and simple - worked in the round.

See the pretty colours? I'm getting more of the violet shades now, but it should finish with a green stripe and balance it out.

The Story Tent

Our oldest children designed and constructed a special place for story-time for their younger brothers and sister.  It’s easy to put up and to take down, and has plenty of room for little people and bigger people, blankets, and cuddly toys.

It is a wonderfully creative use of several large branches that came down in the ’08 ice storm and stash fabrics!

I’m sure that there will be many lasting memories made here.
