Awesome Things

1000 Awesome Things is a great site. I look at it almost every day since I discovered it. It should be pretty obvious what the site contains. So many of the things he mentions ring true. This one was posted yesterday. “The Inlaw Nap”. I couldn’t believe that it was something other people have experienced. […]

Pow Wow

Michelle invited Thalia and me to a Pow Wow at Rock Ledge Ranch today. There were all kinds of Native American stuff there, but Thalia was mostly interested in the animals, not surprisingly.

Thalia’s First Haircut

It was another big first! Ok… so it wasn’t that big of a deal. But I made the biggest deal out of it anyway, taking pictures throughout the whole thing. I told Thalia a couple days ago that we were going to get her hair cut. She got very excited. All morning she was asking […]

Ratatouille

After seeing the movie a hundred times, I finally decided to make Ratatouille. It was a different recipe than in the movie. It included garbanzo beans. Thalia LOVES them. Along with the soup, I made a fresh batch of garlic bread sticks from scratch. I found this recipe at a site called HillbillyHousewife.com and thought […]

Grasshoppers Galore!

Thalia and I haven’t been able to go on a Mt. Mama hike in a while. They always seem to fall on our other plans. So I decided to take Thalia on a hike, just the two of us. Apparently, it was grasshopper season. There were a million of them. She had SO much fun […]

Robots and Skeletons

Thalia’s new thing is robots. She watched Ironman, which she completely loved… at least the scenes with Ironman in them. Then she watched I, Robot. Once again, she loved the scenes with robots in them. Then she looked on our shelf and found The Terminator. Now this one she was excited about because the cover […]

Labor Day 2010

This was a very relaxing and stressful Labor Day weekend. Can it be both? Well it was. AL and I relaxed most of the weekend. But he got up early Labor Day morning and ran a half marathon. He did really well, too! Grammo and Nanna were visiting all weekend. But they were gone almost […]
