Eating and parks and picnics and princesses

This is real time, folks…. when the camera shakes, it’s because Richy was laughing so hard.

an epic battle for control of the brownie batter…

Yesterday was Brynn’s first trip to church. It was pretty funny trying to balance Toby, who is scared of the nursery, and Brynn. What a good problem. And then the church picnic… check the outfit-

In case anybody was offended by the hand sanitizer or the no holding policy, let me ‘splain. (Splaining takes too long, let me sum up), she’s not even as big as a newborn yet. One little germ could put her back in the hospital. So there you go.

Anyhoo, fun was had by all. Also this weekend we went to the park, which is where the ice cream video is from. (some kind of grammatical wierdness there..) I’ll probably post some pix from that on my picture blog later. L8r.

    ok, butter peopleI have now gone over to your side since the great butter debate. Now my problem is since I dont have a butter container and I am SUPPOSED to leave it out, How do I take care of it? I went to Sams and bought a bunch of it in place on margarine and now I am a helpless little rookie.

    ok, now that i got the very sincere formalities out of the way, i have to share something with everyone.i read this news article, and it breaks my heart, but it also awakens my mind to the desperation of our peopleget read: large postMassachusetts man gets 5,000 calls for YouTube posting (4/23/07 – SOUTHBRIDGE, MA) – Ryan Fitzgerald is unemployed, lives with his father and has a little bit of time on his hands. So, he decided to offer his ear, to anyone who wants to call. After posting a video with his cell phone number on YouTube on Friday, the 20-year-old told The Boston Globe he has received more than 5,000 calls and text messages. Fitzgerald said he wanted to “be there,” for anyone who needed to talk. “I never met you, but I do care,” a spiky-haired Fitzgerald said into the camera on his YouTube posting. He planned to take and return as many calls he could, but on Monday at 5 a.m., his T-Mobile cell phone payment will begin charging him for his generosity when he is no longer eligible for free weekend minutes. “I haven’t quite figured out what I’m going to do about it,” he said. “Come Monday, no way I’m going to just hang up on people and say, ‘I don’t have the minutes.'” Fitzgerald, who said people consider him “easy to talk to,” was inspired by Juan Mann. YouTube video clips of Mann offering “Free Hugs” to strangers became wildly popular on the user-controlled Internet site. “Some people’s own mothers won’t take the time to sit down and talk with them and have a conversation,” Fitzgerald said. “But some stranger on YouTube will. After six seconds, you’re not a stranger anymore, you’re a new kid I just met.” Copyright 2007 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed. i had no idea kids were that desperate for someone to talk to! i want them to call me! then i’ll tell ’em about Jesus. i don’t know what ryan’s tellin’ ’em!

    georgia,butter dishes are easily obtained for extremely small amounts of money at thrift stores.or a tupperware container with a lid will do just fine. you just want it to stay covered.store in cool (but not refrigerated) dry area.you can take it out of the fridge one bar at a time (how did you buy it?) and leave the rest refrigerated until you’re ready to put it out
