Well……. poop.

 I broke my pizza stone.

I meant to turn our oven to “Warm”, instead, I turned
the big burner at the top of the picture to “Freaking HI”.

So one part of the pizza stone was super hot, and the rest
was room temp.  This equals cracked pizza stone. 


Later I also broke a wine glass by leaving it at a bad spot.

drouble crap.

Queen Kitty claims Mom as her property.

(that’s what happens when you read in bed and leave the door open)


Our friends brought their bows and we all practiced archery.
(doesn’t everyone do that on a Sunday?)

Black Friday!  Near the end of the day, we were still talking to each other.
(a tactical refueling helped)


We played Star Wars Monopoly!  We eventually called Grandma the
winner.  (Little Man was kept alive by a “loan” from Grandpa)

Tinkerbell likes to plop down on Grandpa to get her petting.


Mom made this beautiful cheese cake for Thanksgiving!

It was three layers of cheese cake, butterscotch, chocolate, and white chocolate.


Little Lady practiced her bow.


Aunt J, Little Man, Little Lady, Grandpa and I played football.

Aunt J is actually pretty fast!


Little Man made a chess set out of his Star Wars Legos.

We found out Little Man likes to lay in the tub and how the shower
flow over him.

While soapy, he likes to make huge bubbles with his arms.
(seen here)

 Also, he likes to take about 20 minute showers….

Christmas.  (She read all three Hunger Games books
in 6 days)


This is a glow in the dark Nerf Football.

Katniss (aka: Little Lady)

We bought her a recurve bow for her birthday.
(an actual bow with real arrows)

She was pretty geeked, and so were we for having
such a cool girl.

The Girl Scouts held a Science Expo at Indiana University.

Here, the girls experienced the solid and liquid aspects of corn startch.


The girls learned that chimps use tools.  Chimps use
rocks to smash things open to get to food.

 Here, the girls smash open tootsie roll pops to get
to the center.


We need to work on Little Lady’s shyness.  (wink, wink)


Little Lady played her first game of Risk!
