The weekend started off VERY wet. Jeff and his Dad worked on wood working projects in the garage while Mama got some time to thrift sans baby (Ellie kept Nana busy at home).

Ellie received a fun toy piano from her Uncle. We are convinced she’s a genius with her excellent rhythm and soul.

The weather lent itself to lots of homemade soups and stews, the making of some new softie toys (a crescent moon, a rain cloud and a rain drop, I’m a little obsessed over making these fun little guys), and lots and lots of book reading, for Ellie and for Mama.

Sunday afternoon we asked Ellie what she would like to do… and a few minutes later, we were off to the beach. An excellent way to end a very nice weekend, if I do say so myself.
