Finally in bed! after a busy day of horse drawn carriage rides and playing in the snow.

Light of my life
Hearsay from Emma says that disection of a sand shark (!) is part of things, but that may just be for the older kids, we're not sure yet. Anyway, go Emma!

Eliza sings the ABC's
We've decided child videos on the internet probably aren't a good idea, so it you would like to see this cute email, let me know and I'll email it to you.

One more thing
Let me know what you think of the new layout, too.
Update: Just looked at this under Internet Explorer and the sidebar is all messed up, pushed down to the bottom. I'll take a look at fixing it later. You should be using firefox anyway.
There are many different RSS readers out there. I recommended RSS Reader merely because it was the first Windows based tool that looked like Akregator (the Linux based tool I use). Basically, you look for the RSS feed icon, copy the link it goes to and put it in your reader. Then it will check the feed every so often and show you what new items have been posted.
Some of my favorite feeds are 101cookbooks (recipes I'll never make), the dilbert blog (he's annoyingly atheistic, but very humorous otherwise), lots of right-wing blogs (like hughhewitt.com and soundpolitics.com). Oh and each category on craigslist.org has its own RSS feed. I can't believe the number of dogs and cats that roll through the Free list (well, I guess I can considering our track record).
Hopefully I cleared at least something up. Oh, and maybe the last post will make a little more sense, though probably not. Here's a picture Emma made so you don't have go away empty handed.

Blogs, RSS, etc
I fired up KDE's Akregator several months ago to see what all the hype was about. I liked keeping up with http://planetkde.org and preferred it to my email digest of new stuff at slashdot. Soon, I started looking for other blogs I might care to read and found reddit.com, digg.com, oy! Sara made me stop sending her links. Now I've gotten into the blogosphere, instapundit, hugh hewitt, corruption chronicles, and more.
Not good for my daily internet overhead. But I can quit any time :). Anyhoo, http://www.rssreader.com/ seems to look a lot like Akregator (though if you're really brave, download Kubuntu and try out a real operating system).
Get me a shotgun for my birthday

Blueberry Muffin Fever by Emma Matelich
Sose loves her parents. Sose loves blueberry muffins. Her parents let her eat blueberry muffins all of the time. She has blueberry muffin crumbs on pork chops, salmon, tunafish sandwiches, hotdogs, and last but not least, ice cream.
Sose had a twin sister named Dove. Dove is a good sis. She doesn’t pull Sose’s braids.
Sose started feeling funny. She went to the bathroom. She went to the mirror and screamed! Her eyes were blueberries. Plus her hair was blue and white. Her mom saw her and fainted. Could someone help them?
Sose grabbed Dove and ran as fast as she could. Sose and Dove ran to Gram and Gramps house. Gram took them to nurse Emma Matelich. Nurse Emma Matelich had never seen this kind of fever ever. She took them to the children’s center. A doctor came and greeted them and then he took them into a room. After they got in the room, he pulled one of Sose’s hairs.
“Ouch!” she said.
“Did that hurt?” asked the doctor.
“No, but I thought it would, “she said.
He said to one of his helpers, “Take this to the office.” He took it to the office and came back and said to the doctor, “That hair is blueberry muffin!” When he went out of the room, Sose ran out of the room and to her friend’s house. She got her friend’s mom, who drove her to a different country. Sose went to the store in Japan. The storekeeper saw her and told her she saw a girl that looked like her. Sose asked how she got cured. She learned this lesson: You have to have a little of everything, not a lot of one kind of food. And she ate mustard pills. When Sose woke up, she was the same as she used to be. And she was home.
For breakfast, she had waffles and salmon. She put salmon on her waffles. It tasted good. She wondered if there was such thing as salmon fever. What do you think?

Open mouthed wonder
Here's a joke from Abe:
Go Go Who?
Go and go and goes and goes and goes and goes and goes and doesn't come back and... (something about texas and getting a knife and lots more goes, I lost track).
And Emma's favorite knock knock joke is:
Ben and Don
Ben and Don who?
Ben there and Don that.

How blessed am I?
Here are recent photos of my 3 cuties. I can't believe how lucky I am too have such a great family. Emma's starting a short swimming class tomorrow, she can't wait to get back in the water. Abe's doing a preschool soccer league, had his first practice/game yesterday. Truly hilarious, too bad I forgot my digital camera. As you can see Eliza is still a doll. She has enough hair for some pigtails. She actually kept them in for about half an hour.

Stop the insanity
And while I know you're dying to know what IHOM stands for, I'm afraid you'll have to keep guessing.
