Blown away

This is what happens when a toddler tries to play outside despite crazy strong winds. The photos were taken less than a minute apart. The leaves on the trees are blurry because they are moving so much.

Check out how the gusts changed directions. It was really hard to avoid them.

We were lucky to not lose power or a tree. So many trees and power lines went down that much of the state is still without power three days later.

We were safely inside before stuff really started blowing around. Who would have thought Hurricane Ike could affect the midwest so much!

P.S. She picked out her own outfit Sunday, from the shirt to the shoes.

My joints (and my taste buds) hurt just thinking about it.

Yes, she is chewing on her toes. Comfy as can be, in my bed, which she frequently decides she is queen of.

(edited to add: that's a medium Fuzzi Bunz pocket diaper she's wearing)

Reaching out...

Don't be afraid to leave comments, contact me, whatever. I'd love your feedback. Unlike this little one, you can rest assured that I don't bite.

A fresh selection of crock pot recipes

I was thrilled to discover the A Year of CrockPotting's vegetarian section. There's a wide selection of recipes that look really good! I can't wait to try them out.

Track? Trig?

Some of Sarah Palin's kids have pretty interesting names. One of my favorite name writers wrote an excellent commentary here on The Baby Name Wizard Blog.
