The Real Maggie

By the way, that other picture is a fluke. This is the real Mao Mao.

This is the background image on our home computer. It keeps us all humble.

Fame comes only when deserved, and then is as inevitable as destiny, for it is destiny. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

We received an email and phone call from CHSFS yesterday asking us for permission to use this picture of Maggie in an ad that will run in the November issue of Mpls./St. Paul magazine.
She hits newsstands on October 23rd!

She's just such a funny, funny kid...

"Oh maaaaaaaaaaaannnn, come on Dad get home." That's what she's saying right now as she's waiting for Bryan at the back door.

Earlier when I told her to get her shoes on because Mom and Dad are going to vote, she said "I want to vote too!", I told her she had to wait until she was 18, but she was welcome to observe the democratic process in action when we voted (yes those were my actual words). Her answer, "YAY!"

Even earlier we were upstairs and I told her not to turn on her penguin humidifier and turned around to leave the room. She said "but I love him!" I turned around and saw her giving her humidifier a one-armed, under the armpit, you're my best friend forever kind of hug.

And this morning I overheard her talking on her fake cell-phone "Do you like my pajamas?" (She told me later she was talking to her Dad.)

Where does this come from?

And one last story, we were going to Trader Joe's a few weeks ago and someone took the parking spot I wanted. "Dammit!" I said. She says "Mommy, no say dammit. Say Oh Maaaaaaaaaaaaaan!"

The Elusive Yeti

The Yeti - or Sasquatch as it's commonly known in the U.S.; is a shy, elusive creature. They have been known to frequent heavily wooded areas and very few pictures exist of these gentle creatures. This amazing photo was captured in the dense forests of Whittlesey Wisconsin over Labor Day weekend, 2008. To protect these wild and beautiful animals, I can provide you no further information.

First Day of School

Maggie and Meaghan started Preschool today at Holy Trinity. They spent an hour there this morning with Mom's in tow - but they're on their own on Thursday.
Maggie has been having separation anxiety lately - let's hope all goes well.

Here are a few pics that I took this morning. You can see that Maggie was pretty excited to put on her big backpack and have her picture taken at home - but by the time she got to school she was looking a little worried. Unlike Meg, look at that smile! She was ready and rarin' to go.
