cozy together

The babies and I spent a night at the farm and had such lovely minutes with the folks.  Among other normalish-home-day things we did, I pulled out Mama's stash of magazines and found all sorts of pictures to cut out to make collage calenders for us for the coming year (a project I am very excited about!)  Olivia worked on her beautiful layered colored paper art and took turns soothing Mister Tired-&-Teething.  We listened to an exciting audiobook and drank hot tea that Mama brought to us on a tray.  Spiced apple candle and a red geranium.  Simply lovely.

~Our happy afternoon craft table in the sunpatch at Mama's yesterday.~

What else did we do?  Ate wonderful food cooked & baked by Mama and Livi, enjoyed watching Greta pretend to cook & can, sang songs, drank lots of hot tea, washed dishes, did a few housekeeping dailies, relaxed (I did!), watched a Nigella Christmas episode on the laptop at bedtime, enjoyed being together.

What a great idea to make calendars! Do we get to see?

Certainly. :) It might be a bit before they're done, though.
