First we stuffed her…

Then we dressed her…

Then we…

I don’t really know what is happening in this shot.

Then the nailing….

This is the disturbing view…

And this is the slightly less disturbing view.

She’s supposed to look like she ran into the tree.

But I think it looks more like she’s climbing a tree and just happens to have a broom sticking out of her ‘hind quarters’.

She’s best admired from a distance.

Jack Vacuums

September 23rd, 2010


Whenever I assign the boys chores to do around the house, I always give Jack the easiest job. While his brothers clean bathrooms and wash windows, Jack only has to pick up a few toys or take a few items all the way up the stairs!  It’s because he is still so tiny.  He can hardly lift a cup of water by himself not to mention wipe off a table top!  But the other day it just seemed ridiculous that Jack wouldn’t be able to handle something a bit harder than putting his shoes away, so I shakily suggested that he could vacuum.  I was fully prepared for both of us to fall apart, but it didn’t happen.  He just ran off and found his dad’s radio head set and then he started to  vacuum!  It wasn’t even hard!  Neither one of us died or anything!  My baby can do real chores!  Next thing I know he’ll be doing his own laundry!







A mother can dream can’t she!

It is Spirit Week at the local middle school and today was 80′s day.

I had the rare pleasure of  styling my son’s hair, blow drying it into a poofy pompadour, rolling his jeans, loosening his high-top sneakers and most importantly getting that collar to STAND UP!

Then I took a series of very weak photos to display our effort.


I can’t be the stylist AND the photographer!

And this is the CD a few nights ago wearing plaid and plaid.

He is fiercely unafraid to bust the boundaries of the fashion world WIDE OPEN!
