I told the girls we weren't going to carve pumpkins yet. They took matters into their own hands.
This is all that's left of the seven-year-old's cake. It's a cake we all made together, served on the official family birthday plate.
I have always loved learning about the funny interests of kids. You know, the subjects that strike their fancy. Right now it's Abraham Lincolns made from tape. And Zoe has taken a liking to the song Would I Lie to You by Charles & Eddie, of all songs. So of course I had to download it for her.
I don't often buy new books, but I just had to pick up the new Nate Berkus book. Let me just say that this is really a terrific book. Instead of the old tips and tricks on how to decorate, he celebrates the things that make a home. He perfectly sums up exactly why I have always worked so hard to make our house a comfortable place to land.
