We went to my parents yesterday and had a lot of fun with the cousins. Orange caught a bull frog with a little help from Grampy.
Tomorrow we are going to the MSPCA to pick up Orange's new kitten, Merle (which means "blackbird" in French). She is *very* excited!

Return To Oz Wheelers

What we watched today...dark, creepy, and disturbing. Orange loved it! I have to get the Oz books for her.

New baby Owen

The girls loved meeting their new cousin Owen yesterday, he's really tiny & cute. And, of course, they had a lot of fun with their other cousins as well.

When you ask Ocean how old she is, she simultaneously screams "Two!!!" while holding up one finger...
We're going to go meet Serena's new baby today! I can't believe that my little sister has THREE kids (and 3 years and under, she's really going to have her hands full)...or that my parents already have SEVEN grandchildren, wow!
I'm loving my new camera but I should probably read the manual someday so that I can do something other than automatic or maybe find out what those other lenses are for...huh.
p.s. are you sick of the "smothered by love" photos? can't help it.

Ocean nursing her baby in the bath...she kept saying,
"okay, other side?" and switching sides. And she makes great sound effect sucking noises. Her favorite phrase lately, when you ask her anything, is "Ummmm...I dunno" (even if she does know). It's really cute although I have no idea where she got it from?

Covetables...60's Ekco Danish flatware

I remember we had one or two of these in the mix-matched flatware drawer at the summer cottage we rented as a child and I just loved the way they feel in your hand. Unfortunately, they now sell for a pretty penny on Ebay. Maybe I'll just try to keep my eyes open for them at the thrift stores.
***edited to add***that I got some! 20 pcs. for a grand total of $34, not bad! Nothing says "instant gratification" quite like Ebay!
