Week 52 – 52 Collages 2014

Well, that’s it. Week 52. The end of 2014! A whole year of collages and good memories including tons of new firsts and milestones for us as a family of four.

Liam got a pretty big shiner on the playground at school this week, and I made Lila a Rainbow Dash My Little Pony crochet toque.

Liam is going through a pirate phase thanks to Jake and the Never Land Pirates, and even referenced Captain Hook in …
