This year is a year that ends in a 9. I feel like I should be making a '40 things to do before I'm 40' list, but why set myself up for failure when the culmination of this year is likely to be depressing enough?

We've been visited by pink eye. I'm kind of amazed, it's been a year at least since the last bout by either of them. We started the drops Friday but by Sunday his eye was so swollen he could barely open it so back to urgent care we went for something stronger. Hopefully this'll clear it up quickly...

Today marked the first communion celebration for both little bits. It was fairly low key, like everything at our church is. All of the kids were completely adorable in white robes over their white dresses and Sunday best shirts and ties. Each child got to do a portion of a reading, and all of the kids sang together. The church was bursting with proud parents, an almost electric atmosphere.
It rained, so I didn't get any outdoor pictures, but it was otherwise perfect.

The little bits look so forward to their big brother's visits home!
He made 'candy sushi' with them today... rice krispie squares for the sushi rice, fruit by the foot became seaweed and all manner of gummy candy became the fish and vegetables. They had such fun together (I even played a little too) :)

The fruit trees in our little 'orchard' (what C calls it, but I don't think 6 trees really counts as an orchard :) ) are starting to flower. It's one of my favourite sights! The sour cherry tree (pictured above) is in full blossom (though I have to say there appears to be fewer blossoms this year, which doesn't bode well for a good crop of sour cherries) and the plum is in blossom too (we've never really gotten fruit from the plum, a couple of tiny plums last year, almost more like olives). The crabapple is just starting to bloom and I imagine by next week the apples and pear will be blooming too :)

Princess's i-spy couch/nap quilt, finished. 50 inches square.
Backed with purple minkee dot, what a PITA it is to sew with that stuff, but oh does she love it. Some of my fave HR prints and some spoonflower fabrics in there, along with bits of her old dresses and other novelty charms that I've been collecting for awhile. Next up is one for her little brother, but he HATES the minkee dot, so I'll need to back his with something else (flannel perhaps?)
