- Have you guys seen this video?
Our kids are obsessed with this, and no wonder: Michael Bublé (Caedmon's personal favorite), Idina Menzel (I can count on one hand the number of times our children have seen the movie Frozen, and yet they somehow know every word of the song Let It Go as performed by Menzel), and the whole video is lip-synced by kids? With the added bonus of mildly altered lyrics to make Baby, It's Cold Outside 95% less Sexual Predator Anthem-ish? I say YES.
- On our recent trip south, I forgot our camera. I suppose it's better to forget the camera than all your kids' pajamas (been there) or shoes for your preschooler (done that) or shampoo (almost every time), but it sure felt like a tragedy. And I'm not even a particularly talented photographer. I just like to take too many photos of my nieces; is that so wrong?
Thankfully, my mom graciously allowed us to use her camera and her phone to take photos while we were there. And by "us," I mostly mean Atticus. I think he snapped around 3/4 of the pictures during our time there, so most of them are blurry, and many feature his fingers in the corner, but it's interesting to see things from his perspective.
- I finally found a way to make Derek like homemade chicken noodle soup: Add heavy cream and plenty of garlic. This recipe for Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup was a winner with our family, which feels like a bit of a miracle; everyone but me in this house seems to be innately suspicious of soup, which makes no sense as we live in the kind of climate for which soup was surely created.
