Trash Can

We live in the country now. And in the country, people steal trash cans. Apparently, it's the thing to do. Leave your kids' toys out -- no problem. Leave out gardening tools -- they're safe. Leave your nasty big trash can in the alley (where it is supposed to be) -- gone. Order another -- gone. Learn your lesson and make your trash can as lovely and personalized as possible -- victory!!
Ah, the life of a suburban mom.
(And yes, I am knocking on wood to be sure our toys and tools are not missing...)

Girls in Pink

Annie proudly participated in her first 5K race on September 25, 2010. It was the Susan G. Komen race for the cure, and she was on our friend Laura Egglestone's team. Laura is our very strong, very loving friend who beat breast cancer (actually, she basically kicked its ass).

Annie was up early, dressed and ready to go, including some very sporty pink running shoe socks...

which were quite chompable.

She did a fabulous job of entertaining everyone and loved hanging out with the girls...

especially Auntie :)

Picture Day

John has picture day at school today. Amazing.
I remember my picture day in preschool. My mom dressed me in a tan colored overall dress with a red shirt underneath. I'm not quite sure how I got to be the mom of someone heading off to his own picture day...and doing it so adorably...
