  2. Aw, so cute!
    Especially the "check often" part, as I am sure my little one {and yours} needs NO reminder to do that very thing.

    {Love the rain boots.}

  9. I did that a few years ago for Christmas gifts - I'd forgotten about that project. I'll have to make sure to remember to do this with my son when he's a little older! Thanks for the post!

  12. I so remember doing this as a child. Thanks for the reminder. I must do with my little man this weekend! Great project.

  13. This must mean it's warm enough where you live for there to be birds in the winter! I'm jealous since we have very few birds and no visible pine cones here in MN this time of year!

  14. that photo of your son on the chair with the red boots made me swoon.... what a cutie.

    i've been missing my hometown lately. haven't been back for a few years... since my parents have since moved out west. seeing all your photos and hearing bits and pieces of your life there really brings me back. i love that.

  15. I love this, AND that you are hunkering down to just "be" with your kids. I'm doing better at that too...but just a little, teeny bit. But little by little I feel lke i"m getting things into shape around here.

  17. Just a little note to say "hi." I just came across your blog this afternoon and I have literally been reading through it for the past 3 hours!! Sadly, it's now 11:30 and I have to get to bed =0\

    Your blog is wonderful and your advice is even better! I just read your post about transitioning from one to two babies and feel like I can finally breathe a bit more calmly. I was a tad anxious as we're expecting our second in May. Anyway, enough babbling. Just wanted to say hello and thanks.

  21. Great project idea! And I just gotta say, there is something about the combination of rubber boots and little boys that immediately doubles the cute-factor of any photo!

  22. I have been following your blog for a while now, though I have not commented till now. You are a great writer, and you are a true inspiration to me in many ways. I am a WAHM with 2 kids, who ofcourse go to full time school. Even with that, i find balancing job tough and many days, i go to bed with a guilt feeling that i have not spent enough time with kids. So during those times, i usually read some article in your blog and it always gets me up. Thanks for writing and keep it up!
