...and spades, scoop and slam, but it'll be awhile before strawberry jam. 

Please tell me if the video doesn't work. 

Snowmen and Cookie Monsters

Once there was a shnowman (I write sh, but the way he says it is by breathing out his nose...not fnowman or hnowman, but 
[exhale]nowman). And other cute pictures:
COOKIE! Sorry Baby, not for you.

The Fantastic Tale of Halloween

Once upon a time there was a young prince who had saw a beautiful sleeping princess...
So he counseled with the king about pumpkins, 

(because the princess liked pumpkins). 

Then he went on a long journey. He was chased by a ferocious dragon,

but he defeated the dragon and transformed her into a tame dragon. 

Together they attained the legendary carrot, said to be a source of vitamin A to those with enough molars to chew it. 
When he returned, the princess allowed him to kiss her hand...
...and they lived happily ever after!

Let me know if these links work. Little videos of Charles playing with Annabeth.

Also, we are going to make this blog private soon, so send me your email addresses and I will put you on the list.

We are deep into autumn already, and Annabeth is almost a month old! Incredible. Here are some birds by Win-Co:

Here is Annabeth in a hat:

Here is our family together:

Here are Charles and I changing our babies' diapers:

And here is a very large mushroom, a humongous fungus if you prefer, just outside our apartment building:

This morning when Charlie was eating Cheerios he held one up and declared it an O. Then he broke one side and called it a C. That's my Charles!

We have been talking about getting a house for a while. If you are curious about that, it hasn't been working yet. Maybe someday. 

Well, Charles is awake! I had better go. Have a happy day!
