So we've had no updates in 6 months... about time to bring this thing current.
I'll be un-bloggerly and back date post into the appropriate months.

Pinewood Derby

Audree's Dasie Scout troop from school participated in a Pinewood Derby this weekend. She was torn between the ice cream sandwich design...


and the Oscar Mayer hotdog car...


but ultimately settled on Mario Kart. By no means an original design; we got some inspiration online from this video:

(check out photo #92 of 126)


Here she is putting on the pi├Ęce de r├ęsistance

3rd Place, 3rd Place, 3rd Place, 3rd Place, 3rd Place - she's nothing if not consistent

Mind you there was a trailing 4th car in each race, it just didn't make it into the photos.

Needless to say out of the 30 some cars she was up against we didn't walk away with the best time, but even amongst some stiff competition...

she pulled off the coveted "Best in Show"!

All and all, a pretty good day!

Pri-iee Dwess

Juliette is on a dress kick like nothing else. She refuses to wear anything else unless we convince her they are "tights" (read: pants) and "supposed to go under your dress" (the best we could come up with for shirts)

This week she didn't even take her dress off to go to sleep a time or two.

Snow Day(s)!

The white Christmas lasted all through school break and even extended it a few days!
