Talking Crackers

Last night as we were finishing dinner, Tooty was eating the remaining few crumbs of a graham cracker.  She picked up the last one and said, "It's crying."

Your cracker?

Her misses her daddy.

Where is he?

In my tummy.

You better eat her so they can be together, then.

And she promptly stuck the piece in her mouth and chomped down.

Belated Wedding Present

It's been almost 4 years since we got married, and we thought that the last wedding gift we received was when I was pregnant with our first baby (which was great, since we were able to buy the baby swing that we wanted).  But it turns out that was wrong - we received it last month.  And it's a beauty, so I just have to share it with you. 

When one of my great-grandpas moved into the house he owned for 50 years, there was a chair in the attic.  I have no idea what it looked like back then, but for many years, it lived in my mom's garage in the form of an empty, unattached frame.  And when we were planning the wedding, she said that she would get it reupholstered if there was enough money left over from the wedding budget.  Well, it may have taken a few years to actually happen, but we now have a beautiful antique rocking chair!
The colors are beautiful, and the fabric has a great sheen to it.  We love it.

Thanks Mom!!

After Dinner Conversation

While I was cleaning up the dishes and leftovers after dinner tonight, Big Sister informed me that she ate two apples and they were swimming around in her belly.

Site Change

So our last blog address was one letter off from a site in Japanese, and we had been getting more and more comments in Japanese on our blog that linked to inappropriate websites, and since I can't read Japanese, I assumed that the site we were close to was no appropriate, either.  So here's our new place - good job finding it.  Gold star for you today!
