We're down south helping my Mom recover from surgey. I am tasked with the less important jobs (housekeeping, nutrition and general maintenance) but the kids have been working on some very special presentations as the cheer squad. This is tonight's Christmas pageant. Enjoy.

What a Thanksgiving. It was stuffed with...
We really hit it hard this Holiday. However, it should be noted I did bring along my ab-roller for good measure. Here's hoping your time was as good and full as ours.

Just finished cleaning up the bathroom after Hank the plumber left today. After removal, rehab and some serious cleaning, we were able to re-install the original 1939 Kohler tub, sink and toilet. The built in cabinet mirror and sconce lights are also original to the loo. This bathroom is charming and extra white and I love it.

...to have been raised amongst catalogues. (<---watch me)
I am having so much fun flipping through all of the catalogues this year. Full of ideas, Christmas wishes and memories. I don't care if I'm early this year...I'm in the the spirit. Our adopted family is not going to know what hit them this year. I feel the Christmas Crazy coming on.

H. A. Double L. O. W. Double E. N. spells it. A wonderful weekend spent with cousins, good food (thanks for the crab Al!) and lots of movie watching and misc. merriment. The good news, we get to do it all over again in a couple weeks. Hip hip for Halloween.

Progress has been made on the ol' basement project. There is still much to do; paint the doors, paint and install trim work, also trim out the electrical (happening tomorrow), some touch up painting of the concrete walls and galvanized pipes, not to mention the whole bathroom needs to be tiled and have fixtures installed. But for now, I am enjoying what has been done. I think we'll even be able to watch Cailou on-demand down there tomorrow. Thank God!

A letter came home from school about head lice yesterday. Nice. And since that is the last thing we need crawling around over here, I went straight to my hippy friend at Metro Market and she set me up with some Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and concentrated Tea Tree Oil to put behind the kids' ears. She said lice do not like Tea Tree Oil and somehow it "gives them the impression that you are not human". Ok. Well, hopefully the hippy will win out on this one, because it would be awfully nice if this worked as a preventative measure. And in my germaphobe world, option two is pulling Henry out of school. Seriously.
Get to the funny part already! Well, in reading through the pamphlet the Health Department sent home, I found these words of wisdom, "Use disposable shower caps when headgear must be worn by different children." I'm not sure what's grosser, lice or sharing headgear? Yuck. And I'm certain that the only thing geekier than headgear is having to wear a shower cap underneath it? TGIF...tomorrow.
