Big Kids!

Today Logan had his 4 month check-up, and got some shots.(See his bandaids on both legs.) He was very brave and stopped crying as soon as I picked him up. He weighs 13 lbs. 3 oz. and is 24" long! Two feet tall! Meadow weighs 28 lbs. and is 34" tall! She is in the 90th % for height and 80th% for weight! (meaning only 10% of girls her age in America are taller!) Logan is at about 25% for both.

Big 4 month old!

Logan got his first taste of food! He had yummy rice cereal, which he gobbled up with glee! He also has recently learned to roll over, and he's starting to move in a circle when he's on his tummy. I'm sure this sounds very basic, but to him life is getting so exciting. He can reach toys now!

MUST HAVES for pets!

Buy the whole set and SAVE! Just imagine how SPECIAL you and your beloved pet will feel as you stroll them along in their comfy stroller, you in your sporty corduroy pants and vest with embroidered dogs, and your dog or cat in their best golf shirt! Better hurry, the stroller is on sale for only $107.99! ...Enlarge the pictures for the details. I laughed about the cat stroller for 3 days!


I know last names used to come from a person's occupation, but now I find it amusing when people have a job that matches their name. I've been keeping a list of such matches for a long time. I promise these are all real. I've either read them or seen them on TV (documentaries and stuff, not movies or sitcoms).
Steve Carpenter - General Contractor
Mike Stone - stone tile expert
Dwight Stampflee - former postmaster
Gay Pressman - news reporter
Mrs. Paige - Librarian
Dr. Gary Alter - plastic surgeon

Playing Tourist

This morning Matthew and I got to go on the Sapphire Princess with a crew member friend of his dad. We had breakfast at one of the buffets, then got to explore the ship! We could have all the tea and coffee we wanted. We played ping pong and then had lunch. It seems like a nice ship. We would love to go on a cruise sometime!

Blueberry Festival

Today was the annual Blueberry arts festival. My
mom and I went to look with the kids. It was very crowded and had the usual people there selling their crafts. This year I finally entered the juried art show. One of my drawings got an honorable mention and the people's choice award! The penguin drawing didn't win anything though. I think people consider pencil drawings as just a sketch, and don't realize how difficult and time consuming it is to make it as detailed and smooth as the ones I draw. I was kind of expecting that. One of the pictures shows the second place winner, which was a watercolor of a bird. First place was a quilt, which was fairly nice, but how do you judge a quilt against a drawing or painting? They should have a separate category for 3D items. The third place winner was a large oil painting of a guy rowing a boat on some gray water with a gray sky. There were other oil paintings that I liked better, but BIG things always seem to win. (sorry artist if you're reading this, just my opinion)

Carrots for Breakfast?!

Yup, that's what she asked for at breakfast this morning! Usually she has bananas with her Cheerios, but today it was carrots! Here she is praying for her food. She always bows her head and folds her hands and enthusiastically says, "AMEN!"

Embracing Baldness.

Meadow felt his head and simply said, "All gone."
