No, I hadn't intended to make Oliver a set of flannel jammies resembling an off the shoulder shirt and skinny jeans. After 2 flannel failures, I'm clearly going to have to use a pattern, and one specifically intended for unstretchy flannel.
It's such a bummer to have a bummer project. Not only the wasted time and materials, but the bummer cloud that hangs over all other good and productive things that may follow. I am now 5 good projects past the bummer jammies and I am finally out from under the funk. Whew.

I'm not sure why he picked it up, but Oliver says "Luncsh". It's one of his favorite words and it means "meal" more than lunch specifically. But he also says "nack" and understands that a snack is sort of like a mini-Lunch.
My Lil Oscar! I searched high and low until I found one in the Soo Goodwill
Good ole fashioned lunch pail and thermos. Just like Dad's. Snatched up at the Bank Building Antique Mall.

Fall came so fast and it seems it is already retreating into leafless trees and flurries. But not quite yet. Although it was a super busy time (so I didn't get to post much) we did have some good fall fun that we should share.
In preparation for Applefest 2009
Play at Green Garden
Snow this week, but still some good times left to be had in our fleeting fall, I believe. What are you up to?

Well, the morning dawned brisk and damp, but autumn perservered and by afternoon we were stripping coats and enjoying the shy sun. Lots of cider pressing and some saucing, all fueled by hearty fare, plenty of coffee, cider and ale, and of course, apple crisp. An abundance of smiles, wool, Carhartts, kids, and dogs. Good times had by all at the Peterson homestead. Maybe this is the impetus for Aaron to start posting again...
Back at the ranch, I broke out Gramma Kudej's cookie cutters to whip up a fancy pie with some leftover harvest. Seems we just couldn't get enough of a good thing. I guess that's why it's Applefest.
