Last Christmas I decided to make my nieces and nephews dress up clothes for their gifts. For the girls I made Cinderella dresses and a Pirate and Woody (from Toy Story) for the boys. The gifts went over well, thank goodness since I was sewing day and night for two weeks to get them in […]
Concern about the environment has made me look at ways to improve our family’s carbon foot print. One of the easiest changes is to stop buying bottled water. We have a filter to improve the taste of our water and I bought a couple Sigg bottles for me, Jay and Georgia. They are made from […]
Lately, it seems, every time you turn on the television, open a newspaper or magazine, you hear about another pregnant celebrity. Julia Roberts began the the trend when she became pregnant with twins in 2004. Since then, stars like Jennifer Garner, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez, Minnie Driver, and Jessica Alba, have all started their families. […]

Since that time, she has learned a number of new signs including “milk”, “eat”, “change” and “dog”. She seems to go through spells where she uses her signs […]

This year for Christmas I was looking for a gift idea for my parents and Jay’s parents when I stumbled upon photo books. They are like scrapbooks—only they are done on your computer. I have a macbook which comes with iPhoto. In iPhoto I can make a photo book right in the program. When you […]
