The Comedians

Flynn (Half asleep on Christmas Eve) “I hope Hoho gives me a bomb bag and a boomerang…” He kept jumping off of things and yelling “HOOKAH!” and it took me foooooorever to realize he was saying “Hookshot”. Obviously. “I want to go to sleep AND play with those.” (his blocks) “Well, you can’t do both”…

Five Years Old

I’m just now getting around to blogging about Juniper’s 5th birthday party. She asked for a Star Party, which it turns out was a very appropriate 5th birthday theme! I love how her invitation turned out. It’s crazy how much she’s changed, and yet she still looks like the same kid. I didn’t take many…

Bomb Bag for my Little Link

When your sweet tiny Zelda-loving kiddo looks up at you on Christmas Eve and says “I op hoho iv me a bomb bag anna no-nang”, you just have to give in. (You also chuckle inside because that kid speaks his own language! He said he hopes Hoho gives him a bomb bag and a boomerang.)…

The Comedian(s!)

Today is a grand event! This will be my first time including Flynn in the Comedian posts! He has been talking so much lately, in full sentences even, and he cracks me up. Mostly just because it’s so weird having actual conversations with him. ** Flynn ** “So Flynn, where should we eat dinner?” “In…

{Kid’s Clothes Week} Day Three

I officially have the coolest kids ever! I have been meaning to sew Juniper a Zelda dress for MONTHS (ever since Flynn’s birthday) and I’m so glad I finally got to it! Halloween makes a GREAT excuse to sew dress up clothes. Now Link and Zelda can both ‘feet Gannon’ in style. (I love how…

{Kid’s Clothes Week} Day Two

I made these pants for Juniper the other night. I almost didn’t even post them today because, well, they suck. But the story that goes with them is pretty entertaining, so here they are! The first time Juniper tried them on, she told me they were too tight. So I loosened them. “Still too tight.”…

To Make You Smile

I had a kind of cruddy night last night. Mentally speaking that is. It was actually quite a nice evening, which always makes the random bummer mood for no reason extra annoying. But today is a new day, and these silly pictures from yesterday’s outside adventure put a smile on my face. If you are…

Project Juniper USA

One of the many, many, MANY things I love about Juniper is her love of learning. Or I should say, obsession with learning. It’s her favorite thing. After dinner, sometimes we’ll sit in the living room and ask her what she wants to learn about. She’ll think real hard for a minute and then say…

The Comedian

This is the first thing I saw when I got home from work last night. “Mommy, do you know about American World? Well, it’s dangerous to go there. Because it’s dark there, I saw a picture. I’ll tell you a story about it. I know ONE story about American World. About morning at American World.…

Zelda Peg Dolls

I had this grand scheme for our road trip, I was going to make some fun little gifts for the kids and spread them out over the course of the trip. My head was full of ideas. As is always the case though, the day snuck up on me and I only found time to…
