my new hobby

I laughed when I downloaded this photo from my camera that Collin snapped while Avery and I were taking an afternoon nap.
I've been doing lots & lots of this lately so I am considering it to be my new hobby. But it seems we are waking up from hibernation thanks to the much needed sunshine.
One of my blog readers commented a while ago...
Hey by the way did you ever finish the quilt with the Ginger Blossom fabric? I think that's what it was called. Thanks! jane CA
Yeah, I did and you can see it in this photo. I actually made both of those blankets with the Ginger Blossom fabric line by Sandi Henderson. love it. I've been itching to make another quilt.
Have a restful and fun weekend!

So sweet of Collin to think of capturing this moment with a picture, don't you love an afternoon nap...I wish I could nap when my little guy does, I usually do some scrapbooking since that's the only chance I get is when he's asleep! got all my Dear Lizzy products today, great quality, can't wait to use those letter stickers!

Super cute picture!
Since the sun is taking it's time to show up, taking a nap or curling up with a book (and my 2 cats)is a favourite here too!

Elizabeth (Beth) Moore said...

Such a sweet photograph! ...and I just love her little painted piggies! I miss when my girls were so young... these certainly are times to be treasured!!

SuZeQ said...

Ohhhhhhhhh how sweet. Feel rested now?

Mauri said...

Every Mommy needs a good nap once in a while. I love how you two are all curled up together. My favorite days are when my 3 year old snuggles up with me for a nap. With baby 5 only 11 weeks away, I make sure this happens as much as possible. :)

Sarah said...

Kudos to your hubby for thinking to take a picture!! What a precious moment!

Veronica said...

My hubby took a pic of me and my baby {who is now 16 LOL} sleeping curled up. Such a GREAT memory to preserve!!

Sunshine of Seven said...

How comfy you both are:)! So precious!
I tried to take a little siesta today, but my baby kept running her toes through my hair and giggling!! We gotta try though, right?!

Tina said...

Kathy said...

Such a sweet photo, snuggling up with your little ones is the best isn't it!

Shabby Chic Crafts said...

aww I was always napping too, for the past nine months. If you don't know yet...I bet a baby is baking in that tummy. ;)

Bonnie said...

This is a wonderful, real life moment that has been captured and I am sure will be treasured by you and your family for many years to come. Love your soft comfy couch, no wonder you love nap time!
I miss napping with my kids, they are too big for afternoon naps now:(

Queen of Bristol said...

Finally we know what your beauty secret is :-)
Beautiful picture!

Jenn said...

What a sweet moment to preserve!

emily said...

you gotta love how if you are a young child-bearing woman and you post any of the following words: sleep, belly ache, lazy, no energy...that people will, of course, assume that there's a bun in the oven!
people do it all the time to me too :)
em
but, it would be really exciting if you were prego!

Rebekah Williams said...

Whoa. I just read the fine print.

Soooooo???? Hmmmmm.

Jennifer B. said...

Cute photo :) love your comfy lookin couch!

Love Le said...

I could just DIE! I think we have the same couch!!! Mine is lighter in color, but the same! So tell me how in the heck do you keep your pillows looking so great?!? Mine are always slouching. Even with the velco backing that is supposed to keep them up they never look that good! What the heck?

Winter said...

How sweet! Love the quilts too! :)

Jean said...

I am currently sofa shopping so this picture inspires me to get a puffy, comfy couch! I would love to snuggle with my 4 year old like this. What a great picture.

Love your blog!
