Hexagons, snails, and puppy dog tails

The hexagon quilt is growing larger, slowly but surely.
I still have three shoe boxes filled with hexie strips to sew together.  It is the perfect project to work on while watching reruns of LOST at night.
The weather has been crummy lately, but we still manage to get outside like the Danes.
This picture makes me smile
and so does this one.  Ethan's latest obsession is collecting snails while on walks and playing in the backyard.
Wave hello to Steven and Sammy snail as they take a spin in their black Porsche
and then take off in their hot air balloon.
Check out our neighbor's snail and squirrel hedge.

Addie is such a doll and has slept through the night since day one.  She is a pretty amazing little girl with the most edible cheeks!
Have a great week!

I love EVERY photo! Chase certainly got himself in a royal mess! Ethan's fascination with snails is SO little boy! And Addie...well, she is just too too sweet.

The pictures are wonderful and I love each and every caption too. When you're not too busy being Aaron's team mate, a mother of two, and a dog walker, you have a great idea for a children's book! The Adventures of Sammy and Steven Snail in Copenhagen. Thank you for bringing smiles to us all.

I love that he has a Sammy snail- we are very proud! So so cute, I want to snuggle Addie so bad!

Oh my goodness, could Ethan be any cuter? I love all the pics of him, even if snails do make me want to squirm. It's wonderful though that he's such a little explorer and has some little woodland friends.
xoxo, kristin
