It's a little bit like code, actually, which I didn't realize until you and Marilyn pointed it out. The girls have an LED nightlight in their room that changes from red to white to blue. And she feels, quite strongly, that the nightlight is not bright enough. Hence, weakest patriotic light. D and I are CLEARLY outgunned here.

Aw...you are always so good to me!

Harper's cheeks look practically edible, but I'll stick with making the broccoli soup for dinner next week. I was looking for a new easy veggie dish, and this fits the bill perfectly!

My friends finished their basement and made sure to finish the area under the stairs with a light, carpeting, nice molding...it's the perfect little nook for the kids. Far nicer than Harry's "cupboard under the stairs" and ideal for pretending and cozy reading.

I DO have a tendency to stick my tongue out at people, don't I?

I tell them, but they don't listen! You, I suspect, have experience with this. Any cures?

Don't feel bad -- I'm well-aware she's walking, and yet I'm always blown away when I see her careening around a corner.

Thank you, my dear! They are pretty cute, which is the only thing saving them from the Wrath of Mama sometimes.

Not to worry -- I am currently suffering from packing ennui, so you have my sympathies. Just happy to hear you all aren't trapped under a wayward piece of drywall!

I still have my Ginghams from long ago -- they had multiple sets, from prairie-style to Victorian and other period outfits. If I remember correctly, there was a grandmother as well, at least with one of the sets; she had braids wrapped around the crown of her head and shawls. Lots of shawls.

Yay for Ruby! And let us know if you figure out that keep the puppy quiet issue -- I still can't figure out how to follow our vet's suggestion that we prevent the cat from jumping. On anything. For three months.

Family is family, Molly -- no matter how many legs. We will keep you all in our hearts and send good puppy thoughts your way.

We're trying hard to declutter around here -- getting rid of at least 25% of our stuff -- and that includes magazines. Lapsed: Everyday Food Real Simple Interweave Knits Waiting out subscriptions: Cottage Living/Southern Living (CL folded) Parenting (freebie when baby was born) Keeping: Wired (for my husband) Click (for the 6-year-old) Muse (for the 8-year-old) The thing about most magazines is that they either make me want to buy more stuff, at a time when I'm trying to buy less, or make me feel guilty because I'm not spending more time crafting/decorating and my house has dust bunnies the size of tumbleweeds. And really? I have enough guilt about such matters without paying money to feel more guilty.

Oh...Nellie was the name of my first dog, that my parents got when they lived in Taiwan. She guarded my crib and and snuggled at will and even tolerated the cat riding across the room on her back. I hope your sweet Nellie brings you and the kids as much joy as ours did.

You know what this means, right? You need to buy more yarn. For the baby, of course. It's all about the baby (who is so cute as to be nearly edible).

You have quite the intriguing past, don't you? Theatre and Alton Brown and all manner of such things -- I want to know more! (And I want that recipe, too.)

I'm not sure that lemon curd qualified as healthy, but it certainly was tasty. It didn't last very long at all...
