I'm actually using a camera cord... Gross.

So apparently my jump drive has kicked the bucket. Probably from all of the times I blindly jab it into the back of the lap top without actually checking to see if I'm lined up with the USB port or the telephone jack. Someday I'll replace it and be more gentle. In the meantime, I was able to dig out the camera accessories, and lo and behold, there is a handy dandy cord that let's me upload my photos. So here are some. It was pointed out to me by a friend that there are still some of you reading the blog, and those of you who are reading it would like to see Roxanne's photos. You guys, she is getting so old. It's just insane. My baby fever is kicking in now that she is so big. Maybe some day when life gets less complicated, we'll think about a sibling. In the meantime, I'm watching those baby shows on TLC and getting weepy. I CAN'T HELP IT! IT'S BIOLOGICAL! I totally brought home a full-sized bassinet from a consignment sale last weekend, and I thought Justin was going to die. Or get a divorce. But everyone relax, it was not bought with the intention of putting a baby in it. It would probably be a death trap... No, it's a 1950's bassinet, complete with plastic wicker (kind of like a cheap Easter basket) and plastic quilted lining, with adorable bunnies and babies and ducks in that so so cute 1950's kind of design. And it's got ALL of it's parts, which includes folding legs with wheels, the floor length lacey sheet that covers said legs, a little hood that is moveable, and even the spotless mattress, also covered in the cutesy design. It sits perfectly under a window in Roxanne's room and holds ALL of her stuffed animals, so she can have some extra cubbies in the Expedit for all of her other toys. Oh, and the real reason I couldn't leave without it: it was $2.50! These ladies at the Morningside consignment sales are perfect for me. They can keep their overpriced Joovey strollers and Ralph Lauren onesies, I'm going for the kitschy stuff. I also found Roxanne a Yo Gabba Gabba dance mat, which has become a nightly ritual. It's AWESOME. It's pretty small, but it's in pretty good shape, and it was under $4. It is loud, and sometimes the sounds are pretty abrasive, but we're pretty worn down by this point. She dances on it while Justin plays her Muno guitar, and it's like a Yo Gabba Gabba discotheque.

Wow, you guys got some real snow! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Great pics, particularly of Roxanne and the hot chocolate (and her dad). Roxanne's so cute, it just kills me!

Get the graduate app done? Good luck!

Thanks! We had a great time in the snow. It's such a rare treat for us... And yes, she's adorable, just like her dad. :) They are big buddies.

And yes, my application is in! I submitted it the day it was due, but it's in!
