Grandpa’s Pancakes

May 30th, 2009 · 6 Comments · bridget, family, food, random

Or the wolf from the Three Little Pigs story. He got pretty creative with them. Lots of shapes, and lots of fun memories. Last month the […]

Shrimp and Mushrooms

May 26th, 2009 · 2 Comments · bridget, food, random

I’ve always been impressed at the diverse foods that Bridget is willing to try. Sometimes she even surprises herself (and me) and likes new/different things.

Once upon a…

May 11th, 2009 · 8 Comments · bridget, random

railroad track?? Why would my girl be tied to the tracks, you ask? Well, it might have something to do with her psycho mother. Maybe. Or maybe not. But probably. The other day I had this idea to tie my “princess” up and lay her on the tracks… I just needed a villain and a […]

Swine Flu

May 3rd, 2009 · 3 Comments · a day in the life, bridget, random, spencer

A friend sent me this image. You’ve probably already seen it since its one of those viral e-mail forwards. But in case you haven’t…. I thought it was funny. I guess the spreading of Swine Flu is less of a mystery now. Oh, and on the topic of slimy wet kisses… Spencer’s closest attempt at […]
