For the New Baby

My Grandfather, who has now passed on, made this cradle for me back in 1980! He was an amazing woodworker, and I believe it was his life's passion. It is nice to have something special for this new little person.


Our fascination this week has been with the juicer, so by request we made lemonade, and apple carrot (with a few grapes just for fun) juice.

Quote of the day

After some discussion about how babies come out Ian said "Well, your 'gina is too small for the baby to come out so maybe we should throw gravel at it to make it bigger."

Where do kids come up with this stuff?????
