eleanor has been really into knock knock jokes lately and entertains us regularly with some pretty cute ones she learned in a book. yesterday in the car she made this one up:

"knock knock."
"who's there?"
"mashed potatoes."
"mashed potatoes who?"
"mashed potatoes all over your face!"

oh the mind of a three year old.

felix turned two on tuesday and i cannot believe it. my baby boy has been with us for two whole years. we celebrated his day with our traditional birthday pancakes, lots of balloons, and at his request, dinner at skyline.

we've been trying to stay busy and avoid the stir crazies while being snowed in by doing all sorts of crafts. we made necklaces and bracelets, played with play dough, and painted lots of pictures.

we're snowed in today and enjoying the coziness of oversized sweaters, a warm fire, a new collection of the palest pink roving for yet another weaving, handmade ceramic mugs filled with chamomile rose tea, the spring-like pink of tulips, and the most delicate of dresses. i have fully embraced the color in it's palest and softest forms and celebrate that it makes my daughter happy not because as a girl she is predetermined to like it but because she finds beauty in its shade. this grey and white loving mama who is most comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt has a pink and purple loving daughter who would prefer to be in a dress at all times and it is ok, it is good.

some portraits

with the new year and the realization that i dropped the ball on the 52 project last year, having not picked up the camera since week 46, i have decided to participate again this year (sort of). i will challenge myself to pick up the camera and post portraits as often as i can. i cannot say that there will be 52 full weeks, obviously as this is already week 3 and my first post, but i will try because man do i love looking back at them.

so here are a couple of pics of the kids from our first week back...
