more ramblings ...

Thank you all very much for your suggestions of my first problem... stay tuned for future issues of my household dilemnas... I have plenty of them trust me. I have thought a lot about it and I think I am going to go with a combination of the suggestions. First, I am going to take Chris's suggestion and install a security camera to find "nobody"... you know him I am sure... the person that does all the disasters... THEN, I'm going to apply the (as Pastor Marv says) board of education to their seat of understanding... and AHEM.... also, put a few baskets there to collect the junk (thanks Amy!). However, a new problem exists... snow. I am pretty sure that no amount of planning and organizing can accomodate the large quantities of mittens, hats, boots, and coats that a snowstorm brings.





So, here's what Em's been up to lately...



The budding artist that she is. Her older sister gave her a few pointers when she was here last so we have lots and lots of these little dittys laying all over the house, and the white computer paper is disappearing rapidly. Every guest that comes to our house arrives to a warm greeting and exits with a souvenir of a portrait of themself.... ready to be framed and hung on the wall at their home. She was inspired by Napoleon's picture he drew of Trisha. We watched it for the hundredth time last week.

"I spent like three hours doing shading on the upper lip. It's probably the best drawing I've ever done."

That is so cute. I remember the days of trying to draw people's faces.

I would love to take some pics with your family sometime...

wow. She's getting pretty good. Tell her she can draw some for me and send them! I think she owes me a pen pal letter anyway.
