Pieter first coconut experience was in Mexico while we spent Christmas 2012 with Oma and Opa. Ben pulled down lots of nuts and we drank coconut milk and had the most wonderful shredded, toasted coconut for Juliana's first birthday. Yesterday, Ben brought home some coconuts and disappeared with Pieter for a bit while I was packing. Pieter came racing back inside with a handful of coconut buttons for me! They still need to be sorted by size and holes drilled, but aren't they beautiful? I think Pieter may have a little side business of button making for my knitting friends when we are in Puerto Rico!
