Stacks of Wonderful Things

We have undertaken a change to our schedule....
homeschool.

Summer is over and our real life routines begin again. These routines have been keeping me from sharing all these lovely stacks of things that have come my way lately.




It was my birthday not that long ago, and it was a very booky birthday indeed! I was surprised and thrilled to find all of these wonderful books wrapped on the table waiting for me to open them...pour over them and love them!!!

I am excited to make my next quilt project with my neighbor and new quilter from the book Simplify. I have already ordered a jelly roll of Ruby fabric. I can not wait!!!




Then there was this stack of utter and total yumminess. Hubby asked what cake i wanted for my birthday and i said i wanted a pan of rice krispie treats. Apparently that seemed to simple so he took that simple idea and went big with it....ending with a multi layered neapolitan rice krispie tower complete with its own set of calculations to make sure that it would fit in all the pans he had chosen. I love it when he nerds it up!!!




Oh the chocolate ones were my favorite!!! I think i might make another pan of those very soon.




Last of all the stacks is this set(stack, only if you look at it just right) of domino rocks we made. Avery, Chris and I collected up lots of flat black rocks from the beach at our cottage in Maine and made them our own rock dominos!!! Fun right....do you think anyone has played this yet? Nope, but they were a fun idea and fun to make. Just used a paint sharpie and did some dots and lines. Couldn't have been easier. Maybe we will use them for school or something. Or they could be just another bag of rocks for us to move around with! :o)




She is no stack...unless you want to call her a little squishy stack of lovin!!!...but she is pretty cute!!! I was feeding her lunch and before long it all got to be too much and she just zoned out and then passed out sitting there. Like a good blog mom, i was sure to take this picture before i rescued her and got her settled into be for a real nap somewhere more comfortable than the highchair.

The dominos are so cute. Great idea.
Little highchair sleeper is pretty darn cute too.

So much birthday fun! I really love the cake and especially all the calculations to get it made. Exactly what I would do with my engineer mind, too!

Sleepy girl!

The dominos look great. I don't think I've ever played other than Mexican train dominos. I don't know if that's right but we've played it at Barbara's house!! Her rules.

Chris really went krispie krazy with the cake! Nice job.

I love the sleepy baby photo. Made me smile. That rarely happened at my house but I always grinned when it did.

Happy belated birthday!
