Understanding Laura

I am a crunchy oddball with too many ideas and too little time. Do you get me now?

School Room

Ooooh! I just discovered the mass-upload feature!
That made this post sooooo much faster!
Yippy skippy!

Creative Corner

It's 10:31 am and Delia is in PJs.
When you cut your molars, you can have a PJ day, too.

Reading Nook
(Delia's favorite part - she loves the dogbed pillows)

Shop and Cook

Doll House


I didn't get a good shot of the activity lot.
Behind the yellow Rody horse, there are walkers, strollers, and pushcars.

This is our sad new entryway.

Dramatic Play
My favorite part (and Kellie's too!)

A little bit of flat surface rescue and a few more wall decorations -
and we've got ourselves a school room! :D


Today is one of those days that almost requires a nursing mama to be top-less.

Delia is cutting her molars and my ta-tas are her best friends.

On a positive note - I've got the school room 90% completed.

Will try to go snap some pics...if I can put my nursies away for five minutes. Ha!

Before and After

Pictures of the house! Finally!

The floors are being refinished today - so I couldn't get a picture of the kitchen.
But it's the same color as the dining room - just a few shades lighter.
I'll post more as more progress occurs. :D

Hot Air Balloon Night

Delia is currently obsessed with backpacks...and hats...and purses

Super Why games make Kellie's face happy

Delia has mastered "Too far!"
She comes running right back 95% of the time

Hot air balloon fest!

Yay! Hot air balloons!

Slowly losing weight, I am

Showing Delia the hot air balloons

Oooh - pretty lights

Kellie is the Princess of gymnastics

Delia is a gymnastic-fantastic
