Clown Day

C is for circus. Joey got to be a clown at preschool today.
How flippin' adorable is he?

Joey and I decided it would be fun to have a gross-out dinner tonight. We had mouse meatloaf,

brains (it's watermelon--I was even getting grossed out by the veiny things in the rind)

Ogre toes--looks like someone needs to have a pedi!

And a toilet cake. I know, that may have just gone a little too far with the lemon jell-o and tootsie rolls, but I couldn't resist.

Boys love this kind of thing. Could you imagine a house full of girls going for this? No way, Jose!

I think every mom in the world does this...Sorry guys, you get to pose for a first day of school shot.
James is headed off to High School, Ben is going to Jr. High,

Andrew is in second grade this year,

And Joey's going to Preschool!

We'll see how much I can get done in all my spare time!

Pumpkin Roll and IPad 2 contest

Just in time for Fall, it's Josi Kilpack's latest book in the Sadie Hoffmiller series. If you've never read a cullinary mystery, they are stories that creatively incorporate food and recipes and Josi does it like a genius. Her books are clever and funny with just the right amount of sentimentality. Josi is a wonderful person and author. I should know because she's been one of my closest friends for over twenty years!

Sadie is not your typical heroine. She is adorable, middle aged, a little crazy and a super cook who seems to stumble onto mysteries wherever she goes. With her unorthodox and slightly hilarious methods, she is able to crack the case.
Anyway, I'll be getting myself a copy to add to my collection. Look at that darling cover. You can go ahead and judge the book by it. It won't dissapoint.
Oh, yeah...leave a comment and you're automatically entered to win an Ipad 2! More info on

A Fairy Tale

What a beautiful wedding--I have to say, I'm a total sucker for this kind of thing. I had a little 2:00 a.m. tea-party for some friends and family while we watched the live coverage. We all had the Mormon version of tea in our little tea cups--Diet Coke.

Don't we all look cute in our hats? (and jammies)

There is a British bakery downtown, and so I went and got some things. These are crumpets--who knew? They are YUMMY!
