{pretty, happy, funny, real}

Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life.  


 Our quickly growing Twinkle Toes, wearing a pretty new dress and holding the Strawberry & Peach Tea Cake we just finished baking! 


Captain loves the new Catan: Cities and Knights Game Expansion, for with The Settlers of Catan, that he received for his birthday!


"The Fireman" made with Stockmar Modeling Beeswax
by Rascal (age 9)


Snuggles was the only one that didn't like the Tea Cake...  

Visit Like Mother, Like Daughter for more pictures of contentment!


  1. Oh! Twinkle Toes gets more lovely everyday! My boys were very impressed with the bee's wax "fireman". Great detail! And we all *love* Catan games in this house, too.
    And my soon to be 6 yr. old son upon seeing the pic of your tea cake said, "Oh! Mom, you need to make that again! It was SO yum!"
    LOL :)

  2. Yes, the wax firemen are quite impressive!

  3. Twinkle Toes eyes just pop with that pretty blue dress. I love Lands End. Just tried their swimming suits for the first time this year...2 thumbs up! We swim six months out of the year and these still look brand new!

  4. Beautiful eyes! Oh my gosh! All my girls have worn the LE dresses... beautiful, durable, modest. Have a lovely weekend! +JMJ+

  5. We love Lands End too! It doesn't look like the dress is on sale anymore, but last week there was a 20% off coupon and free shipping, making it a little more affordable - in addition to the additional 6% back from clicking over from Ebates first (here is my Ebates referral link if any of you are not members yet!).

    I also got her an ivory long sleeve shirt that she can wear under this dress for the fall, so it should last her awhile.

  6. thanks for the ebates tip. didn't know about this.

  7. That dress makes Twinkle Toe's eyes POP! So pretty! And poor Snuggles, he really missed out! It looks delish!

    And I love the fireman!! That is so clever!

    And Captain needs to beat me at another game of Settlers soon, it has been too long!
