{pretty, happy, funny, real}: 7 July 2011

Good morning!  I am joining Leila at Like Mother, Like Daughter for {pretty, happy, funny, real} again this week.

This one was actually taken last Friday, but I think it's so pretty it makes my teeth ache!

 All this pretty pink in my workroom...fabric for a skirt for Una,

and pretty wool felt for Gemma's birthday crown.

 Sucking on artificially colored and flavored Ice Pops.  We bought a bunch for our party that never happened, so the kids are in Ice Pop Heaven.

Berry picking time.  Yummy, healthy fruit, free for the taking!

 My eldest son has no issues with his manhood.  If I ask him to take in the laundry, he dons my hat and clothespin apron and heads out.

He doesn't even mind my taking photos, even realizing that people he knows actually read this blog.

The shoe and boot corner of our schoolroom.  This is actually on a pretty good day...usually they are far less organized and there is far more dried mud scattered about.

Head over to Like Mother, Like Daughter for more {pretty, happy, funny, real}!


  1. What kid doesn't like Ice Pops on a summer day? :)
    I love the shots of your laundry helper - so great.

  2. Gotta love boys who can wear aprons! I agree, your little daughter's photo is a keeper!

  3. Beautiful photos, great job capturing everyday life!

  4. A clothespin apron...I never thought of is a great idea! I normally just drop them on the floor and then tell the kids "let's see who can pick up the most in a minute!" They fall for it every time.

  5. Those blackberries! Yum! Ours are so late this year, and I have been out of jelly for months. Enjoy!

  6. He is TOO CUTE!

    And, I love the disclaimer on the pops. I would so do that, too. :p

  7. That could be Marin from the back in the first picture!

    Isn't this the same fella who donned the mustache?! He seems like a good-natured kiddo! +JMJ+

  8. Mom2Seven, this boy is my biggest surprise, and a beacon of hope to mothers with really dreadful, temperamental toddlers everywhere! I remember saying of him, when he was two, "I love this boy--but I really don't like him!" He was moody, sullen, threw tantrums daily and made going to Mass an ordeal.

    He is now a funny, loving, generous, cooperative boy. Still a bit moody, but he has learned self control. On many a day, he is my favorite child!

  9. Haha, love the apron! I also love the header picture at the top of your blog with the cows :)
