Found this lovely idea today from a friend of a friend on Twitter.
The goal: Collecting pictures of our life with our kids with no faces. Excellent idea because we never can really get it right on anyway. So, I’m joining and if you wish please join as well.
The link is here at Building Camelot, and here is my first picture. I will probably post mine weekly.
This is what I read on the Yahoo news this morning.
China slams Dalai Lama in government report.
This makes me want to vomit.
Go ahead, follow the link.
The Dalai Lama is one of the few heroes I have in this world. I have never heard a man so devoted to peace, love, understanding, caring for one another and the world about us.
I have issues with China. Not Chinese people in general, don’t get me wrong. But what the? The Chinese report praises it’s rule over Tibet and says it has spent vast sums of money and manpower to protect Tibetan culture.
Oh, is that why the Dalai Lama is in Dharmsala?
Is that why monk-led protests turned violent? Shame on those violent Buddhist monks!
Sorry to get on my Soapbox, but some things really grate me. Like governments.
Here’s a clip.
Boo skipped school Tuesday because her substitute was MEAN and she said that she would be back tomorrow and she was nice today but she would be mean tomorrow. Also, she wouldn’t let them play by the tree.
So I know I suck and I should have made her go, but it’s one day and she LOVES school and I’m not going to let one substitute ruin it for her. She went today.
We had a tea party. It was cool. It was fun. She was outrageously cute.
Check out the cool new Halloween tablecloth..don’t you love it!
We had 12 friends and tea and raisins. Does anyone else think plain raisins are gross?
Baby Kangaroo needed help with his tea.
Then she showed us Gerda Muller’s, Autumn, one of the finest books ever.
Overall, a fantastic day. I will miss this when I go back to work.

Was off to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Festival on Sunday with the girls, Dad, sister and boyfriend.
Great time had by all. If you’ve never been to a Renaissance festival, it’s a one of a kind thing.
People dressed to the hilt in costumes, the Queen and her court cascading around, human chess game, acrobats, sheepherders, falconers, music, food, food, food, gifts, crafts, food, wine, food.
Here’s some pics:
Looky what I sent to PTO Bingo on Friday….jealous you weren’t there aren’t you?
Frosted Fall Brownies and Walnut Cheesecake Bars with Cherry Topping.
A seven year old girl, two pillows, a baby blanket and a teddy bear are way too much to try to carry up the stairs at once.
But finally she’s asleep.
