A few months ago, my wife made pumpkin bars. They were delicious, but i thought she was making a pumpkin roll and kept waiting for her to perform the magical rolling process that turns a thin sheet of cake into a delicious and swirly baked good. This week, she had leftover pumpkin and decided to make my pumpkin roll dreams come true!
Here is the kindle in its hollow bed!
I am making a cover for my kindle out of an old book. I saw that someone on the internet had done this and something about it seemed very appealing: maybe it’s the book-within-a-book nesting, or the modern/classic combination, or just that it’s a fun little craft. I am almost done with it!
Today we took beatrice to eat at red robin, because our kitchen floor is not yet finished and this makes it difficult to prepare food. She liked the pizza, she liked eating our fries, and she even liked the broccoli when she ate it with two forks.
Tomorrow we are getting our kitchen flooring replaced! This is good because, like pretty much everything in the house when i bought it, it is crappy: cheap vinyl stickers applied inexpertly over an already crappy floor. The flooring is now peeling, cracking, and separating. Thankfully, the new floor is coming tomorrow!
Beatrice likes to have us spell words. I wanted to photograph the words we spelled together, but by the time i got my phone out and its camera on she had wrecked them all. Luckily, i remember them! We spelled MOMMA, ITSY BITSY SPIDER, and BIG DUCKIE. This is an excellent use of my memory cells.
Tonight we had brother night. Kelly’s brother erik and my brother patrick came over for dinner. Kelly made chicken parmesan and, for dessert, lemon pie! lemon pie is frozen and delicious.
it’s getting harder and harder to take a clear photo of our girl… She’s always on the move! She loves to run around the kitchen when kelly makes dinner.
Beatrice made these at school! She was very proud of them, especially the one made from her handprint. She held VERY still while Miss Susie painted her hand!
