First Sentence?

This morning, Emmie might have said her first sentence.  Promptly upon being lifted out of her crib and set on the changing table, she started saying "cookie, cookie, cookie."  Then, while changing her she said, "Daddy, where is the cookie?"  Inflection and everything!

I guess maybe this is her 2nd sentence.  Once, a few weeks ago, when Julianne wouldn't give her some oatmeal because it was cooking in the microwave still, she furrowed her brow and said, "No cooking!"  Feisty kid, eh?

Weird hairy beard guy from internet ads

Lately, I have been collecting ads that feature this really creepy looking bearded guy.  They pop up on facebook, the and elsewhere.  Has anyone else noticed this?  More importantly, does anyone know who this guy is?!


So far, these are all pretty standard.  He's sporting a hairy chest it the first one, but then in the 2nd, his hair has been tamed a bit via photoshop, and it look like they drew a shirt on him.

Here is where it gets even wierder.

Mr. Weird Beard has started popping up in ads targetting Moms.

Is it just me, or is this a bit odd.  "Hey Moms, this creepy hair guy thinks you should go back to school."


If anyone finds any more of these, please send them my way - maybe I'll start an archive of creeper ads.

Warm weather

It was a whopping 34 degrees in Lincoln on Saturday. That is a lot warmer than it has been so we decided to go outside and take a walk! We put on our gear: boots, mittens, fleece, scarf, coat, and hat.

Brenden tried to teach Em how to throw a snow ball but you can't do too much with mittens that never go on just right. We just can't seem to get her thumb in the little thumb thing.

She loves being outside and doesn't seem to mind one bit that she can't move her upper body.


I had never made a quilt and wanted to try it out so I went out and bought a jelly roll. I think I am addicted. This is just the quilt top. I can't wait to finish it. Thanks to Laurel for helping me figure it out!
