Ramona and the Rug...

Dave took Rowan with while he got his hair cut this weekend - though she could not leave the house until she found a "work shirt" to wear that matched Dad's. So the twosome returned home a couple of hours later, and lo and behold, she had a new haircut too. While I silently was bummed that we would not be wearing piggies or ponies for awhile, or wear the glorious up-do we had practiced for her upcoming dance recital, it was hard to resist her sassy head turns and poses. She LOVES it, and is very proud of herself for explaining to the stylist how she wanted to have it cut ("up to my ears with big bangs that go straight across"). I think she looks like Ramona of Beverly Cleary fame, which is timely since that is what we are reading at night...

I also snapped a few shots of Griffin too - and thought I could use one to showcase my new rug - which took me months to find. Yes - the correct google search would have brought it to my attention sooner, but we kept trying discount store and home improvement store versions and were never happy... until now! I love it (though I have yet to do any sassy head turns or poses :))

the Dabbler is born

Tada! After months (years?) of lurking and reading other peoples blogs, I've finally decided to start my own. The goal(s) of said blog being twofold...
1) To photo document my family's life - both to share with distant rellies and friends, and to capture for "prosperity", since I have done a terrible job of writing in baby books or even taking pictures with any regularity.
2) To find a place to track my "projects" and thoughts.

Enough said. I'm sure this will either evolve or dissolve over time... we will see!

To start things off - here are my goofy children...showing off a new homemade outfit (love the "pre-smocked" material), as well as some "big boy underpants" (Spiderman, of course).
