I have always thought that the automatic craft cutters were cool, but this one is awesome! The Silhouette will cut paper and vinyl!
I have entered a giveaway over at Thrifty Decor Chick's blog. Wouldn't it be lovely to win one? Go enter for yourself!

We joined the summer reading club at our local library last week. Caleb was given a t-shirt just for signing up to participate. He really didn't need any incentive to check out books, but it was exciting for him nonetheless.
The library allows you to check out up to 30 items at a time. I thought this was a bit much, so I told Caleb he could borrow 2 movies and 8 books at one time. I picked a nice round number so that I'll always know how many items we'd be returning each time we visit the library.
He picked out:
...along with another book entitled Rustie's Big Adventure and 2 Thomas the Tank Engine VHS tapes. Thank goodness we still have a VHS/DVD combo in our bedroom. The library doesn't have very many DVDs for children, but they have LOADS of VHS tapes.
When we reach 20 books read, Caleb will receive several coupons for treats at local restaurants and such. I'll update you when we achieve that milestone and let you know what was included.

I take back what I've been saying about Sarah not getting overly fussy as she's cutting her teeth. She is becoming annoyingly unsatisfiable.
Today's solution: Teddy Grahams
1) They soothe her gums as she gnaws on them.
2) They fill her tummy when she needs a snack.
3) They give me a few moments to myself without having to hear the fussiness.

Although I arrived in Keller with the kids on Saturday night (so that we could attend a birthday party on Sunday), I didn't leave for home until Tuesday morning.
Mom had planned a trip to the Ft Worth Zoo for Caleb's Monday with Granana. She let me tag along.
Crazy hippos! This is the farthest they came up out of the water. Who can blame them? It was HOT and humid!
