Various and sundry things I never posted...
Griff's post-holiday, delayed-due-to-plague birthday party finally happened on Feb 14th. If pirates and Valentine's day aren't a natural mix, I don't know what is. Something I do know: six-year-olds are my new favorite thing. To find out why and read about pirate socialism and more, visit the new 2009 photo album.
I think Feb 18th was probably the snowiest day we'll see this winter. We woke to big fat icy flakes coming down and coating the near West End, but alas, a week of balmy weather had left the ground a bit too warm for snow, and by 9 o'clock everything was already melting away. Maybe next year.
1 little, 2 little, 3 little Starbucks fans. Curses on whomever decided to put a cafe in every Target store! Do you know how hard it is to escape without caving to either my caffeine addiction, the pleas of my children, or both? And do you know how sheepish I feel (but apparently not sheepish enough not to do it) that I have started giving Xander his very own vanilla milk?
