Abby’s Uncle Charles got her some Disney Princess Pez dispensers for Christmas a couple years ago.¬† While getting ready to read bed time stories to the kids last night, Abby found Snow White.

Abby: Do you want to read bed time stories.

Snow White: No, I’m just a toy and I go over here [to the toy bins].

Rainy Day Blues

Rain Rain Rain

Remember back when you could curl up on the sofa with a good book on a rainy day?

Yeah, neither do I.

However my Christmas cards are in the mail and the Monkey has soy milk.  And for some reason I decided to leave the house again.  I must be crazy.

Getting back into this

I need to get back into this. ¬†I’ve set the beading aside until after the holidays, just to much going on right now. ¬†

My mom and I are making a¬†ginormous¬†amount of cookies. ¬†Now I just need to figure out who to give them to. ¬†In the process I am doing a couple vegan recipes for my food allergic toddler. I’ve mastered vegan pancakes and I also have a muffin recipe but I’m still working on that one. ¬†Baking without eggs is tricky.

Thanks to a very dear friend I’ve spent¬†practically¬†nothing on Christmas cards this year, however finding envelopes for them has proven difficult. ¬†Going back out this morning to look some more.

Then I need to finish decorating the house for the holidays.
