We have started a new joke that the squirrel who comes up to the deck is Parker's boyfriend...well he paid her a visit today. He started out in the tree outside our bedroom, went down and then came up onto the deck. Their was a lot of running from window to window for Parker, but the two never came face-to-face through the glass.

This morning as I was driving to work I spotted 4-5 bucks on the side of the hill...I'm guessing this is the crew that recently visited our backyard. Then, on the way home, there were two on the other side of the rode sparing with each other. I didn't get a photo of the sparing...just them looking at me.

Summer Leftovers

I had felt a little bad about not getting the Earthboxes out of the backyard prior to the winter snow...but today my laziness was rewarded. A leftover tomato became the treat for the squirrel who frequents our backyard.

First Day in the Books

Well, the first day of 2013 has come and gone. I woke up to the sound of running...my nephews up and ready to tackle the new day!

I have to say that the first day of the New Year has been fairly productive. After saying goodbye to the family, they stayed over from our New Year's Eve celebration, I decided to tackle my craft room. (I had to move a LARGE number of items out of the way for Jack's pack-n-play to fit in there last night.) I began pulling things out and managed to fill a large trash bag. But now I'm left with how to organize everything. The craft room is where today's pics come from. They are the "before" of what I hope to be some AMAZING "after" photos...stay tuned!!

After going through several file cabinets, I came across a number of teaching resources that I had created years ago when I was in the classroom. I moved on to recreating them digitally for The Teacher's Corner. And now it's time for some TV and Norteno Margaritas!
