Sunday Snapshot — Frugal Entertainment

Mark and Emily were outside raking leaves, while I was inside taking care of some laundry. A few minutes after they left to start raking, I heard Clara struggling with something…

… it was like a grunting sort of noise. Was she trying to lift something heavy? I went to investigate…

…and I found this! She had dragged her princess chair to the front door to watch the “show”.

I could have sworn I heard her say, “Hey, you missed a spot!”

More frugal crafty goodness, and a special blogiversary celebration is coming up this week! We are very excited!!


  1. Dear Valerie,

    You should have let her out. I could have used some help getting in between the bushes, and she is just the right size.


  2. So cute.

  3. Multi-tasking Mommy says

    Wow, that's a lot of leaves!!!

  4. That looks like the exact spot I would like to sit while someone else works in the yard! 🙂

  5. Oh… BTW… Do you think your dear sweet Mark could come and rake some of my leaves? I have a youngun to put in front of the door too. 😀

  6. Now that is determination!

    The other half of the leaves are still up in the tree! Thankfully, my local taxes actually go to something useful — a giant leaf vacuum comes through weekly in November and removes any leaves you put along the curb.

  8. How cute and adorable!

  9. Jessica @ Colorado Crafter says

    Kids do the cutest things!

  10. Amy Caroline says

    That is so cute!!!! I love it!

  11. Ahhhh the simple things in life. 🙂

  12. Infant Bibliophile says

    So cute! For a minute, I thought you were going to say she was under all of those leaves.
