Is this safe for children?

I got my niece Emily a Sit N' Spin for her second birthday. However, it is a "Simon Says" Sit N' Spin. (Could anything be more annoying?) The best part, is that Simon will tell you to do all sorts of wacky things, like "SPIN FASTER". Yes, this is a good idea! Does Simon also tell you "Don't yak on the carpet if you get sick!" ?

More Baby Pics

Oops, how did that picture of the cat get in there? Hee hee. That picture was probably taken before she swiped an oranment off the tree. Naughty. In furthering my belief that we have ghosts in the house (was the condo built on an ancient Native American burial ground?) I seem to have also captured photographic "evidence" that we have spirits in the house. And I ain't talking about Jack Daniels. I think I may submit this photo to the Travel Channel's "Most Haunted". Seance anyone?

The newest members of the Warren family are home and happy. They are pretty cute- I have to say. I even got to change some dirty nappies and was "christened" by one of them when she sneezed/barfed all over me. It really wasn't a big deal, poor little girl just had too much to eat. Oh well, another excuse for another cute outfit!

I'm looking forward to the holidays, I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping and planning for some holiday baking. Santa, if you are listening, I desperately want to know how to knit a hat. Scarf making will only take a girl so far. And I need a hat that doesn't make me look like I have a condom on my head. Thanks Santa, that is all.

Cute as pie...

Quinn and Clara

Everything's Bigger in Texas...

Last weekend I jetted on down to Dallas to spend a couple days with my grandmother before she heads back to the Philippines. It was wonderful spending time with family, I even got to meet some aunts, uncles and cousins I've never met before. Crazy!

As there is not much to do in Dallas besides eat and go to the mall, we did exactly that. Near my aunt's house, there is a GI-MUNGOUS outlet shopping mall in which I found some awesome deals for myself. I did also find some humorous items, such as Delta Burke's line of lingerie at the JC Penny Outlet store. Indeed! Like I said before, everything's bigger in Texas.

I learned how to knit and watched a cockroach lose it's life to the end of a broom, courtesy of my Aunt Ruth. Oh the humanity.

On the side of the highway in Grapevine, there were these giant Christmas ornaments just sitting as decorations at every other intersection. It was weird thinking about Christmas when it was 90 degrees outside. It all seemed very bizarre to me.

I've finished my scarf, it's not bad for my first one. It's a little crooked in places, but it keeps me warm nonetheless. I'll be making one for the cat next.
