A visit!

 On the wall of my parent's kitchen..

Jude discovered Grandma-Jude's old roller skates and put them to good use!

Jude loves to draw wherever he goes. Grandma-Jude gifted him with a great big sketchbook and he filled so many pages while we were visiting there!
Jude decided he was going to sleep beside the orange in the picture come nighttime. He thought he was so clever and funny to do such a thing! Ollie copies everything his big brother does, so naturally he conceived to bring a clementine to bed the following night (-;

A simple breakfast of rye toast with cheese, applesauce and tea in a place where I had no early morning freezing-cold barn chores to do! This in itself was quite a treat for me.

I taught my Mom how to needle felt, and we sat for the entire morning doing so. It was very peaceful.

This is My Mom's cat Sumo. She is really quite the character. Amarook the dog always seems to evade the camera!

I made this little sheep and then gifted it to a good friend later that day (:

It has been quite a time since we made the trek down to my parents' house for a weekend visit. Now that we have moved, it takes two and a quarter hours to drive there but for some reason it didn't feel unpleasant or boring on the trip there or back. The boys were remarkably well behaved both times, thank goodness! We don't have a lot of car-ride perks, Just some gluten-free crackers and a bag of books!
For some reason, Ollie didn't make it into any of the pictures. He does seem to be running fast all of the time, rarely settling in one spot for very long. Poor Bella caught a 24-hour flu and so had to stay home with Jason who is working on some paintings. Such a talented artist he is! I will post some pictures soon (:
