Activities

We've been busy with the day to day things, but have still managed to get a lot of fun things in too. Last week we took the kids out to pick wild asparagus (yes it as only last week and they are still bundled up like it's December).

Just a pic of the asparagus. I've never seen it growing all on it's own. The taller mini tree-looking things are also asparagus. If it's not picked it will eventually look like a bush-shrub type thing.
We planted the garden and of course the kids needed to help.We made a cake to take to a funeral yesterday. Good thing I had a very involved helper. How would I manage without her?Yesterday afternoon BrittanyJo and I had fun sewing together. It was her first time sewing and made a really cute pillowcase. You can see it on her blog here. She did a great job, especially for her first project. I had this bird fabric I've been dying to use so I made Tawny a summer dress. It's based off of the Summer Vacation Dress pattern from Made. I altered it a little by adding sleeves so Tawny doesn't have to wear a shirt under it. It's a little big, which I was hoping for so she can grow into. This may be Tawny's favorite dress so far. She loves the fabric, but I think the pockets are her favorite part. She had to tell every single person at church that her mommy made her a dress and "it has birds and trees and pockets for me to put all my stuffs in". I think I'll make this one again, with a few alterations.
"Make a shape!"
