Trying again...

Today Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States. What an awesome awesome day. I can't say anything about it that so many other people haven't already said, and much more eloquently, but I couldn't let it pass without comment.

So, I keep thinking of things that would be cute to blog about, but then I post them on Facebook instead. And the only people (person? Hi Barb!) who read this see everything there! But I'll try to keep this updated too, as it's a better archive to print out at some point for the girls!

Some funny things the girls have said and done recently:

Allison looooved Aretha Franklin's hat at today's Inauguration. She thought it was very beautiful, so I am making her one of her very own. I'll post pictures when it's done!

Allison also thought, while watching American Idol with me, that Paula Abdul was very beautiful. Might need to talk to this kid about her affinity for flamboyance.

Lizzie has started climbing. All of a sudden, today, she decided she must reach the highest point in any room, and nothing is going to stop her. So, now our kitchen chairs are on the porch because they are mere pawns in her must-dance-on-kitchen-countertop game.

I am sure there's more, and I will work on posting at least one anecdote or picture or something at least once a week! I'd like to say I'll do it daily, but we both (me and you, Barb) know that's not going to happen!
