wow.  it has been awhile since i sat in my computer room/craft and sewing room/spare bedroom to type a blog entry.  tonight it is very cold out...the wind is howling and this room is not insulated, the windows are old and quite drafty so with very chilly hands the typing is rather slow.  i may turn now to the many photos i have taken over this past holiday season.  i also need to turn my attention to the littlest member of our family as i prepare for his first full trip around the sun on the night of a blue moon, the last day of this decade, december 31st.  i am about a quarter of the way finished with his birthday crown and the wool for his new pants lay burried under the scraps of christmas and chanukkah craft mess.  so...here we go...puzzles with great grandmother, wicked! vintage high chair, snow snow snow (in jersey?!?!), books with great grandmother, a cousins first birthday (a little indulgence never hurt, right?!), waiting for the train to take us to nyc, train tracks, a toothbrush and baby...endless entertainment!, nyc..., a snuggle brother sandwich, bye nyc...!  and now back to the birthday crown.  be back with the rest of our trip and some of what we made tomorrow! 


  1. Hi Pennie! It looks like you had a great time! Does someone take care of your farm when you're away? I guess the winter is the only time you could really do a trip like that.

    Thank you so much for the surprise on Christmas! I was SO surprised! Eli loves it! I'm so glad Renee wanted it to go to me.

    Love, Kyndale

  2. Hi Pennie!
    Wow.....I've never been to NY! Awesome images! Looks like you had a great time and I'm glad you made it back safely! I hope you are enjoying these very last days of 2009....and happy almost birthday to sweet little Zev! First birthdays are so special...still such fresh memories of the birth!
    Sending love,

  3. It's always good to be home after a long trip and snuggle into your own comfy bed! How exciting to ride the train into NYC. That must have been fun for your boys. What lovely pictures from the city up high!
