This past weekend the girls and I finished up a craft project: Wee Leprechauns. I'm now intimately aware of how little patience Bella has with things like this. Frustration is not always a bad thing.

Happy Birthday Michelangelo!

Bella was hoping to celebrate her birthday a little early... eight months early. We celebrated Michelangelo's birthday instead. Happy 536th! This cake was made with a box cupcake and homemade frosting recipe. Tough to see but the candle is a multiplier. Also, the girls were banging their forks to get me to come to the table.

Super Cycle

We're anxious for winter to end. From front to back I've used an ordinary mountain bike, a Schwinn Hitchhiker and the coup de grĂ¢ce: a Master Cycle Bike Trailer to create a fun ride for the girls... and exercise for dad.

It's Alive!

Some will think me mad but it is amazing how much better the girls eat when their food is in the shape of something other than what it is. My confidence as a food preparer has dramatically risen in light of this finding.

Ol' Erupty

Bella and I watched this YouTube clip from StormTheCastle and decided it was doable. Yes, as far as science projects go, we're not breaking any new ground.

The Tooth Fairy Cometh

The Tooth Fairy dropped off this origami heart just moments before
Isabella awoke and began foraging under her pillow.

I created this with Color Splash and my iPhone. Pretty slick what you can do with minimal effort and a .99¢ app from iTunes.
