How we spent our unplugged Sunday: making a gnomey village, breaking out new coloring books, cooking, playing on the school grounds, having a first backyard barbeque (it was cold, though!). Faith joined us for most of it. Hooray! And I'm happy to say that I stayed strong and did not turn on the computer at all nor pick up my phone. Happy Monday to all!

It all looks wonderful! Did you make the gnomes?
I really like the ocean-themed coloring book. My little one is really interested in sea horses right now and that is a really detailed rendering.

How were the baked beans? I just tore that recipe out, too!

I was just going to ask the same thing that Jennifer did. I also tore out that beans recipe. How were they?

Mary Beth said...

Ladies--the beans were great! A hard sell to the children, though. They are so picky! I thought they were delicious. Definitely remember to soak overnight, though. I same-day soak wouldn't work for this.

Mary Beth said...

Audra--yes! I made the gnomes as part of their Christmas present.

The coloring books are by Ruth Heller. The boys LOVE the sea creatures one--luckily we have two identical of those.

Ahhhh :) I'm a happy mama!

I just re-discovered your blog. Had missed your beautiful photography & comforting posts but couldn't think of your blog name after I lost all of my RSS feeds.

*delighted to be back :)

It looks like a most perfect day, indeed. :)

I love it. Sunday is a big sports day for the men in our house, I seriously doubt I could convince my husband to do it. But perhaps it's something I can do for myself and with the little ones and maybe, just maybe he'll be inspired to join us too.
