Oh, the Pain!

After having waited many moons... fearing spoilers and reviews... I am sad to say that on this "Harry Potter Day", I still await my book. Suddenly having the library binding doesn't seem nearly so important. Alas, perhaps by the end of the week I will emerge a more patient and satisfied Harry Potter fan.


I finally got my hands on a copy on Monday. Thank you to my wonderful husband for putting up with my withdrawl from society to consume the book. I loved it. Couldn't believe I was right about some things, and was totally surprised by other things. I'm so sad it's over. On the prowl for new books to read... maybe I'll try Discworld.

Awards Ceremony and Walking

Sounds like graduation, huh?

Sunday, in Honor of Alicia, and Eli helping Mommy to get their messy room clean without whining, we held a quick awards ceremony. I made up a certificate to hang on their wall to remind them of what a great job they did. I should have posted this sooner though, because it is messy yet again. Mahala was being "camera shy".

Also, on Monday, Lily decided to walk for us. She was fresh out of the bathtub, wrapped in a towel, and wanted a yellow beaded bracelet I was holding, and then took off. It took a few times, but she managed to get pretty good controlled steps for about 5 at a time. She was so excited and cute.

I can't remember which day it was, but she's also got 2 teeth popping in on the top with two more close behind. Looks like she might actually have a mouthful in time for her birthday!

Now, you'd think that after having all this rain...

and whining about hating water, that I wouldn't be interested in something like this...

BUT! we got one... it's only like 2 feet deep, but I'm telling you, it is refreshing! I just hope it doesn't collapse!

And now for some random photos:
