Puppet Show

It’s true, I have been neglecting this blog very much. I’ve been working on catching up on various projects and photo books. I am impressively slow at making photo books and I feel like I need to work really hard on them these next few weeks. There is just never enough time to get everything done.

I am very excited to share some keepsake boxes I have been working on as soon as I get them all assembled.

The summer is flying by and I have not shared much of anything Elin has been up to. Here is a random smattering of photos:


Elin attended her first puppet show at the library. We were excited that our local library was bringing in this travel puppeteer and his show. Elin was super excited they they were performing Sleeping Beauty. Anything princess-related is a hit. She loves all the events the library puts on and this was no different. She was so good to sit on the floor with all the kids during the whole 45 min production.

The marionettes were all carved out of wood and were over 60 years old.

None of my photos from the production turned out since it was dark and there were bright spot lights, but we got some photos of Elin with the puppets after.




She was thrilled when they let her go behind the set and check out all the puppets and stage props.


Lately the weather is either stifling hot or raining. A combination of both has left us mostly indoors recently, but a couple of weeks ago Elin enjoyed playing with the granddaughters of a family friend and she had a blast playing with the girls in a motorized car and skateboard.



Last week, Elin mentioned out of the blue that she wanted to bake cookies–so we did. We made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. She helped with the whole process and enjoyed watching them as they baked.




This girl is getting so big and is ready for preschool to start in just a few weeks.


  1. She’s getting so big! I love her watching the cookies in her chair!! Odette would be screaming that they weren’t cooking fast enough lol! Good luck getting your photo books done! I love making them for Odette each year 🙂 XO, Kelly

  2. That photo of Elin watching the cookies bake is so cute! It makes me wanna bake some cookies with Ez so he can do the same thing. And so I can eat the cookies 😉 Looks like you guys are packing lots of fun in, despite the crazy weather.

  3. She looks so content watching those cookies bake, how sweet!
    Oh my, preschool. How fun! I’ve been looking into preschool for Avery, as well. Can’t wait to hear all about Elin’s preschool fun 🙂

  4. Awww, she is just so stinking cute! Waiting for the cookies…love that. And there just never is enough time is there? I’m so far behind on photo books too. I really need to get my act together.
