A Couple of Cool Caucasians enjoying Colds, Creations, and Carousels

You may recognize these cool caucasians.

This is a story about them.

This one, in particular, was thinking one day, and decided that she wanted some attention from the other two.

So, she got sick.

And I mean sick. (I usually only post the cutest pictures of the babe, but I was hoping to inspire some sympathy)

Of course she couldn't wait for the other two cool caucasians to get well first. That would be a little too easy.

So, the first one (in keeping with her creation kick) started making sweets. 'Cause who doesn't like a good spoonful of sugar (or two) to get the medicine down?

When that didn't work, they took her to a fun place full of germy rides.

Well, the good news is, she is feeling somewhat better. It must have been all that counting with Cookie Monster that did the trick. I'll remember that next time and try it first.

Big Heads and Sharp Teeth

Millie has been going crazy on the development train lately. Not only has she started crawling

and pulling herself up to standing,

Is it just me, or is does her head look proportionally large in this shot?

but she's also popped her first....and second...and third...and fourth teeth in less than 3 weeks. I don't know how she does it. I would need some serious pain killers for that kind of experience.

Yes, this is the pew in front of us at church.

Oh. And she's decided that since she can stand up in her crib now, she doesn't need to sleep when I put her in it. HELP!!!

Huggie my Not a Snuggie

Mr. Lund said that he had a surprise from Woot! coming for us in the mail. We couldn't wait. So, when it got here yesterday,

And we saw

We were excited. What more could you want than two oversized "Not a Snuggies". Here's what Woot! says about them:

Where The Sleeved Blankets Have No Name

Look, you know what these things are. We know what these things are. But we can’t call ‘em that – and neither can you. While you’re enjoying the unparalleled fleece comfort and unselfconscious convenience of America’s favorite neo-garment, you may refer to it using one of the following Woot-approved noms de sloth:

  • Wrapathy
  • I Can’t Believe It’s Not Just a Blanket With Arm Holes
  • the Surrender Gown
  • Cloak of the Dyslexic Wizard
  • Fleece Birth Control
  • Depression Binky
  • CuddleShroud
  • the Infantilikilt
  • +3 Shawl of Telecommuting
  • OK, You Got Us, It Actually Is Just A Blanket With Arm Holes

Why? Well, that’s a very complicated question which cannot be examined without a comprehensive acknowledgement of the various entities (legal, financial, and extra-terrestrial) affected by the provisions of any contractual agreement between the contending parties. Or maybe we acquired these through less-than-official channels and don’t need your big mouth broadcasting it all over town, OK?

We’ve implanted listening devices in every single one of these to make sure none of you violate this term. Or maybe it’s a condition. Either way, watch it. But hey, you can call the book lights whatever you want.

So, if you see us sporting these beauties, don't be confused. They are NOT Snuggies. They are actually "Not a Snuggies"

Learning and Creating

I've made a new goal to learn and create something every day. The rules (rules for a goal?) are fairly loose. In other words, yes, making dinner can count as creating something.

Here are a few of the things I've been working on:

A wall hanging for Millie's room

Reversible shoes: I didn't make two right feet, just wanted to show both sides of the shoe.

Hair clips

The model is my friend Janae's cute baby. My sister Dianey made the skirt.


This shot is to show the ruffles

I've also experimented with some horrible looking but delicious tasting kiwi-lime-grapefruit cupcakes, and homemade ice cream.
