This is the freebie toy that came with a kids Chick-Fil-A meal. I can't imagine may of these are getting finished... the only reason this one came together is due to judicious application of x-acto knife and scotch tape.
I'm a big fan of Dooce, both her writing about motherhood as well as her Daily Style. I was jealous when she posted a link to a vintage children's seller on Etsy that she had bought this cool book from. Imagine my delight when I went through a box of books that we had in storage and found the exact same book! It wasn't mine as a child. Mom thinks it came from the school in Germantown where my Grandmother taught for years. Lots of other cool vintage books in the box, too.
We have 9 large windows in our sun room alone. And another 16 in the rest of the house. Plus 3 glass doors. So we thought it might be wise to put that plasticky stuff you use a hair dryer on to help keep the heat in because the house ain't cheap to heat. It's pretty time consuming installing it, but I've done 5 so far. We won't do all the windows, but about half I think. Boring pic, though. Nothing like a picture of transluscent plastic!
OK, as promised, I'm going to have a bunch of pics taken between #202 and #203. To hold the space, here are the latest portraits of the boys. Later on, I'll update this post with a link to some others. From today, though (appropriately 1 January), I'll be back on track with one pic a day (I hope!!).
