She wanted to make "sparkly" valentines


I love my little boy

Dog Pile on Mommy


My feet must have been cold - thus the wool hiking socks...

February Beach Party

It was one of those Saturdays when we were all sick of winter; Laurel shows up in her bathing suit and a little while later Dean comes down the stairs in Laurel's camisole.  "Laurel, why is your brother wearing that???"
Teenage dramatic pause, "Moooommm, he's dressed for the beach."
Oh my.
Then she added the tutu and pulled Dean around the house - and it looked rather like a ballet. Improvisation that comes from being stir crazy!

New Shelf

Family, some changes in the dining area. As the dining area is the part of the house that was almost a deal-breaker for me, I decided to make it as spacious as I could.  Thus, out with the bulkier bookshelf.  (Mom, shoe storage goes in the Expedit by the fridge now, as you originally envisioned, and it works well.) We love the shelf Luke's brother Nick made for us.  The right cubby has become Luke's work dumping ground, and the middle sometimes hold library books.
