Scavenger Hunt Sunday

45 minutes before my Sunday is over.  Lots of organizing and cleaning done today...including some of my old photos.  It was such a grey week, I'd decided to hunt in my archives...old archives.  You would think I'd have a better choice for music out of 30,000 pictures.

When Sunflower was little it was pretty ROUTINE for her to fall asleep in her carseat, and always with her little hands clutched into fists.  She loves this blanket...called "Knit Blankie" though I'm pretty sure it was crocheted.  We asked her what she would like us to bring her from China and she said a new knit blankie...it is starting to unravel.

Music:
My aunt collects old fashioned toys, including this child piano (and a lot of creepy dolls.)

We start teaching our children TECHNOLOGY at a pretty young age. 

Show Me Your Style:
My boys at 6 and 2.  They've grown-up so much since then!

Sunflower's pigtails are often MISMATCHED.  She isn't still enough for better precision...so we say, embrace the chaos!

I hope you've had a great week.  Ours was pretty good...and one week closer to going to get our daughter (no firm date yet.)

Your children were beautiful from the beginning! I love these glimpses from their youth (which I missed) and I am anxiously awaiting photos of the newest daughter when she arrives! Have a blessed day - I love that you embrace the chaos! What a wonderful way to live!

I love that you put old pictures up. The picture of Sunflower as a baby, really reminds me of Huckleberry for some reason. I've never seen that before...

And I love your technology picture...especially all the VHS's in the background. :o)

And...your comment on creepy dolls made me laugh.

I just loved seeing these pictures!!

Cedar, I think we're sisters! My aunt called to inform me that she made out her will and is leaving me something like 400 vintage dolls (some that my sisters and I used to call "graveyard babies" because they looked like someone stole them from out the dirt)....

Love that went to the archives for this week's hunt, so fun.
