I had heard lots of good things about The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, but I kept avoiding reading it. The plot sounded depressing, so I just kept putting it off. I finally picked up a copy at the library last week, and, wow, I loved this book. It was so exciting I couldn’t put […]
Yesterday was my birthday, so my daughter made me a cake to celebrate. She meant it to be decorated in pastel flowers, but I guess the food coloring was too strong, and it ended up being bright flowers. My husband got me 3 cookbooks, looks like he is expecting some exotic cooking in the next […]
My son got a bunch of Kapla blocks for Christmas, and he used them to build this snowman. Of course we still have plenty of snow outside, so I’m not sure why he felt the need to make a snowman inside. The Kapla blocks are very nice, you can make detailed structures with them. Here […]

My son won 1st place in his cub scout pack at the pinewood derby on Saturday! He was very excited, and here is is winning car, with the trophy and ribbon. They got nice trophies this year, I guess one of the Dad’s has a metal shop and helped the kids make the trophies.
An embarrassingly long time ago I started making a doll house for my sister. I’ve finally decided to finish it, and I hope by posting my progress on my blog weekly I’ll be motivated to actually do it. So here is a picture of the doll house right now. It is next to the water […]
Our neighbor has peacocks, and we see them wandering around our yard all the time. A few days ago we finally saw one with its feathers up. We couldn’t get too close, but here are the pictures. They are huge!
