Happy Thanksgiving from our Thankful Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving! This year we followed @BusyToddler’s lead and made a Thankful Turkey! It took just a couple minutes to make a turkey and feathers out of construction paper, and it’s all held together with painters tape. Every day we talked with Amelia about what she is thankful for and added a new feather to… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving from our Thankful Turkey

Giving Thanks

There is a lot to be thankful for this year! We had a great visit with family in Mississippi for Thanksgiving. Taking a step away from normal life and soaking up some unscheduled time with family and friends is always restorative, and this holiday was no exception.

A Little Boo Cross Stitch

I got ahead of myself by stitching a Thanksgiving project first… but I managed to finish up this Halloween cross stitch just in time! This is my first Lizzie Kate pattern, after admiring plenty of others on social media. The kit came with linen and embellishments… my first time using both! The linen learning curve… Continue reading A Little Boo Cross Stitch
