Thanks for sharing so many delightful things with all of us. Happy holiday season for you, Andy and Amelia, too!


I love hearing what you & your sweet girl have been up too!! It's quite mild here in the Chicagoland area as well, they say we will reach 50 on Wednesday but the cold is coming!!! Blessings to you for a joyous Holiday Season!!

Thank you for your inspiration, your warmth, and all that you share with us! Such precious pics of Amelia! You said, 'I know, I'm insane." It is terribly wrong of me to be grateful for your "insanity"?! We love our Maggie Rabbits over here and cannot wait to welcome a fox and kitten (at least) as well! Wishing you all joy this season! :)


Thanks to you for giving us such delicious portions of your life!

Your photos are beautiful. I have one of your rabbit kits but have been to busy to complete it...hopefully over the Christmas holiday I will get it done :)

Can't wait to see the animals! You might try offering only water when Mimi gets up at night. My daughter was mad about it a couple nights, then gave up and started sleeping through the night. Love-love-love the first days of walking. Heart meltingly wonderful.


Top photo of Mimi...big chuckle from me as I exclaimed delightedly, "oh you chubby cherub!" Such a bright spot on gray days, yes??!!


So happy to see Clover - how is she?


The beautiful pictures of Amelia just make my day, what a lovely child!

Photos you do are so beautiful, thank you that let us see moments of daily life!


Could it be possible that Amelia gets lovelier each day? What a lucky mum, what a lucky child. I'm so pleased for you both!


So exciting on the almost-walking! Amelia is a dream boat.

That said, OY on those early morning hours; I don't know how you're managing to be creative and busy and cooking and planning through the exhaustion. And blogging, to boot! :)

I do photo books each year for each of my girls' birthdays. I also make them a felt crown with their age on it. Now that my eldest is 5, it is really fun to display them on her birthday each year. It is a wonderful tradition and I love seeing all those electronic images on paper - finally! I also made a special book for each of them about the story of their birth written to them in simple language. I think adoption stories would also be very neat captured in this way.

Happy holidays from up on the mountain, where I can verify that snow feels quite imminent!


Beautiful images - and I can´t believe how fast she´s growing! :-)


Oh my but that last picture is gorgeous! What a stunning child!

Thank you for such wonderful reading and photography.

Hi Alicia.. love to see your blog pop to the top of my list! Mimi is so fun to see with all the cute different looks and moods. LOVE the shot of the hood. It's such a beautiful mountain that we have, isn't it? My Maggie bunny is sitting next to me in a twig chair - I was thinking, dang, I wish I'd knitted her a bright red Christmas dress! I think I might need a fox to be her companion. We are decorating for the lovely month and our two little grandsons are soOOoo excited!

*H*A*P*P*Y* * *H*O*L*I*D*A*Y*S*!*!*!*

((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Your pictures are always so beautiful but that last one of your darling girl is quite stunning!


Thank YOU thank YOU thank YOU :) Your words ALWAYS lift me up. And I had hoped that you would post a pic of that Mountain soon. :) I kinda missed him. Happy December! Your plans sound so good!


you're the best. she has the BEST mama. xoxo love from muskoka xoxo


You don't even know how excited I am about the new animal kits!!! I will make them all and horde them all until I can bear to let my little violent doll-undresser (pull! strain! yank! snap!) have them. Maybe when she is ten.
Love your photos! I just ordered books from Artifact Uprising for gifts, too. Can't wait. I'm nearly done shopping. Feels great!


Gosh! That girl is soooooooo pretty. Xx
