What A Treasure!


So do any of you remember the old Fisher-Price toys?

I went to a friends thrift store this past saturday. And most thrift store can no longer (because of some law stuff) sell toys. Well while I was in there she said she had something I might like. Some one brought in TWO HUGE bags of some thing she felt bad turning away. The person was being so generous.....
Well guess what it was?

Old and like new Fisher-Price stuff!!!!!!!!!
A barn, cows ( that still had their tales!!), sheep.
The house, with a man and car,and well the list goes on.
This is a very BIG blessing and the fact that it is enough for all 5 to enjoy together just adds the proverbial Icing to the BIG cake. It also came at the perfect time since we have had 2,
and could possibly have a 3rd day of rain (in a row).


It has been nice to see things Josh and I remember playing with, bringing such joy to our own kids.
Oh and I can't believe I forgot that best part. Since the store couldn't sell them, she gave them to us.
I am trying to think of a special way to say thanks. The store gives it's proceeds to help cancer patients so maybe we can make something to donate.

I hope where ever you are you are feeling well and able to see the refreshing signs of spring
popping up around you.
Stay warm dry and peace filled

Oh sweet Maple Tree how I love thee!

(Dag enjoying his treat)


So today was Maine Maple Sunday!
We got to enjoy going to a Sap House with some friends.
Unfortunately the kids had more fun hiding in the (fake) well,
but that's boys for ya.
The place was really great they answered any questions we had.
They had samples of maple sugar coated peanuts,
maple butter, apple crisp(made with maple syrup) and cider sweetened with maple.

As always thanks for stopping by!
Hope you all had as lovely weekend as we did.
Stay warm and peace filled

Lovely Rainy Day!

Oh what a sweet treat, is time with my little buddy Trace!
(check out those dimples)
We went out to the thrift store for some much needed pants for this not so little buddy, Agway to finally order our chickens, and last but surly not least to indulged our selves in some choclate. In the form of milk and doughnuts. What could make this rainy day any better!

I also had the joy of starting and finishing a little project. All in one day! Amazing!
( It was very odd putting a picture into water)

I have been wanting to do something a little diferent with a few of the kid's baby pictures that I have saved over the years. So I seen some people use the printer fabric and thought I could give a go. The process was fun and simple ( simple is the key right now). Josh helped pick the picture and also helped get it printed correctly. I bought the hoop at the thrift store today (thrifting is so fun). The pink fabric was a remnant of one of her baby blankets. And the green and white fabric used as the hanger was form the binding of her toddler quilt. Oh the memories.And finally the dear picture of Aliza was taken by a good friend when she was just 2 weeks old. She is now 3. How time flies.
(So small and sweet, holding Daddies finger)
We are going to do one of each of the kids and hang them in our room!
I hope to be able to show them all as they arrive.
As always thanks for stopping by!
Stay warm and peace filled!
