Pecked by Penguins

Well, lately the weather has been perfectly befitting of Kansas. A few days ago, we were trotting around the Country Club Plaza (for out-of-towners, it's a gorgeous area of Kansas City full of shops, all modeled after Seville, Spain) on a musty day, looking at the famous fountains.
Today, we were fighting off the chill with hot drinks, the plains now burdened in thick blankets of snow. It was perfect timing, however--Chapter 13 of my book, which I am fourteen pages into right now, spans the Christmas season in the land of Figglement.
Also of note: Gryffy has officially begun crawling across the room, as of his nine-month birthday. His first really impressive go of it was at the club, when Lorelei was getting her shoes on, and he just took off across the carpet beside us, trying to get at the stroller. I was hoping to put off this milestone for as long as possible, but he's a determined little bugger.

  1. Wendy, I loved the caterpillars you made with the kids!

    They sure had a good time with their Aunts, Uncles and cousins in Topeka.

    Grammy loves her kids, they are too cute!

    What a nice way to keep a journal, diary or scrapbook on your family. I think it is great and I love to go on my computer and look for new posting or my two cutest kids in the world!!

    Love, Grammy Deb
