home again

we're back in brooklyn and now have even more to share, and i will. but first there are two little girls demanding a day full of making cookies with marshmallows, art projects directed by the soon-to-be kindergardener, sprinklers at the playground, ringlet-inducing buns (again), and band practice (these two have big plans for our family)..

Love the golden locks. And kindergarten, we have one joining in on that fun this year also. Can't wait to hear (and see) what fun you've had.
Those glasses are hilarious and make me think of some face masks my little sister received one Christmas, they covered the upper half of the face and made one look a bit odd.

Glad to see you have made it back! I can't wait for the posts to come. Your girls are hilarious!

love, love, love the curls on your girls!! :-) when I was little my Mom used to make finger curls with a wet brush on my waist length blond hair every day before kindergarten--oy let me tell you, the look was great but it was a drag to sit there. The year was 1972 and I remember it like it was yesterday. me sitting sideways on the closed toilet lid with her on the sink counter behind me parting my hair with the metal end of a teasing comb. Sounds like you have a much gentler and happy making method! they look beyond precious and beautiful. thanks for posting those gorgeous girls with their gorgeous locks--so fun to see.

I'm so glad you're back to posting! I discovered your blog through a link literally days before your hiatus and have been craving some updates. Your family is adorable and your sewing projects for the girls are truly inspiring!
