these fools...

I told myself I wasn't going to watch American Idol this year. I mean, seriously....who wants to hear what these crazies have to say?

But it's the best! Randy has always been okay with me and JLo doesn't bug like I thought she would. But who knew what a gem we had in Steven Tyler??? I don't even care if someone's writing it all for him, it's killing me.

peace in the valley

I went to Napa this past Sunday while Mark and the kids stayed home. It is weird to be there by myself (or to be by myself at all). I feel like I should be in my teens.

Anyway, I drove around and took some pictures, but this is the only one that "saw what I saw". All the others seem flat now. I guess you have to be there. It really is beautiful.

snow day


Please forgive our lack of snow gear. We're fresh out of San Diego, you know. But it was warm thank goodness. That's Cash with all the drops on his face from trying to shovel, and Graham on his Dad's shoulders. Marlo was so excited to go that she put on everything snow-ish.

Snow Queen


Marlo didn't want to make a snowman, she wanted a snow, of course.

She has been asking Mark and I to "find a four year old boy who's not in our family" (because you can't marry cousins...she wanted to marry Luke) and ask him if "he wants to be a prince when he grows up because you have a daughter who is going to be a princess".

She has also asked me if I will come visit her in fairytale land because she will miss me.

Mark sometimes puts his ties on her when he gets home from work. When she saw the picture of herself she said, "I should have taken off the tie".

Doesn't everyone start their day with a binky and some vacuuming?
