Where's Baby?


Abbie is very interested in the sun's rising. Especially since she can't get up until it does. So this morning she kept saying, "The sun is coming up" over and over. Finally I repeated, "Yes, the sun is coming up" and she replied, "It's coming out of the egg."

(Doesn't it make your eyebrows hurt?)

full moon + snow = erie colors

I love when a full moon is casting shadows on snow. All the colors are black and periwinkle. I bet it would be great inspiration for a quilt!

Lost in Translation part 2

Jason: So you speak from experience?

Maggie: No. (long pause) I speak English!

I love Mr. Rogers!

Do you remember this song?

It's you I like,
It's not the things you wear.
It's not the way you do your hair,
But it's you I like.
The way you are right now
The way down deep inside you
Not the things that hide you
Not your diplomas...
They're just beside you.
But it's you I like,
Every part of you,
Your skin, your eyes, your feelings,
Whether old or new.
I hope that you'll remember
Even when you're feeling blue,
That it's you I like,
It's you yourself, it's you
It's you I like!
Mr Rogers

Happy New Year!

I would like to try resolutions for once... but most of the things we could "resolve" to do less of... are disapearing anyway.

1.I don't want any junk food for all of January; Due to finances, all non-essential food items will not be purchased.

2.I want my kids to watch less TV; Due to finances, Cable will be discontinued until further notice. (I am canceling this friday, I must give 30 days notice... SO YES VIRGINIA there will be a SUPERBOWL!
