Sunny Simple Sunday

Hello! I wanted to get this up earlier but we had a super busy day and then we had dinner and when I thought I might get on the computer we all ended up in the den with my husband playing music from his Ipod and all the kids ended up down there and we talked and laughed for hours and I know you know that when your older kids want to just sit and hang out and share, you need to let it happen. It was the best. We were silly and serious and together, which is what was most important. Sorry I am late but I was hangin with the fam.

Jann of Have a Daily Cup with Mrs.Olson shared this most adorable playhouse. A friend rescued and redid this playhouse that used to be in Jann's yard. You have to see this. It will bring out the child in you.


Linda's Lens took this amazing photograph of a recent hike. She is my idol. I love how she is out there enjoying such gorgeous places on a regular basis. You can read this post and see where she took these photos here.

Chenille Cottage shared with us her darling children's aprons. Her fabric choices are so adorable and I think Q should have one of these. I will have to see if she sells them. You can see them all here.


So please link up whatever as long as it is family friendly. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Nothing is more important than family! Yesterday you and yours created happy memories that will be treasured for a lifetime. So glad you all had a great bonding type of day. Now on to what is at hand ~ I love, love, love that playhouse and wish I could have one in my backyard. Never too old for playhouse fun! Thanks for hosting Elaine.

I agree. When those older kids want to spend time in your presence, better take them up on it!

Chenille Cottage said...

Dearest Elaine,
The time you and your husband have invested in your childrens' lives...It will always be with them wherever they go...What sweet memories to cherish!

Thank you for sharing my little one's aprons. I had so much fun making them up. I have become the "Apron Auntie" in our family.
I am looking forward to starting an Etsy in the near future. Aprons are something that I love making. I will keep you posted on my blog.

I love "Sunny Simple Sundays" and look forward each week to popping in!
Blessings and friendship,
Carolynn xo

Hi Elaine,
I love it when we have great family time! We try to hang every weekend, but with the teens it gets harder as they get older to keep them around. Always more important to see them as much as possible! Mine won't be here that much longer. Thanks for hosting!

Your family time sounds wonderful; 'way more important than blogging! On the subject of blogs, though, I'm luving these referrals to some who share with you; so interesting!

Elaine, this is me, Vicki, who's been emailing you because my google account was messed up but, no more, so now I can leave comments here on the blog (promise they won't be as long as my emails!).

Have a great week - looks like we might get a bit of heat relief here in our neck 'o the woods.
