From the Blog-O-Sphere

My Dears, 

How is 2013 for you so far?!

I have no complaints although I’m thrilled that our preschool has started up again; we were all going a little batty around here:




Today we braved the occasional snow flurry and icy winds to go commune with the gorillas at the zoo.

Zoos are depressing places during the winter months; all the poor beasties are dreaming of their warm, tropical [non-snowy] homelands. Did you catch the Seattle Times series on the elephants at Woodland Park Zoo? 




Chris and I adore those “How Things Are Made” videos. I don’t love this one: How Hot Dogs are Made


Polar Bear rattles cage of cameraman. [film] Holy smokes. This would seriously freak me out. As they say in the video: "Polar bears are one of the few animals that regard people as prey"...And this one is hungry. 

Oh my, one [incredible] last gift: Fatally ill, and Making herself the lesson

Ben has been practicing his ‘round and round’ aka turning in a circle. He makes me dizzy just watching him. 


The other night Chris and I rented Touching The Void, about two buddies that decide to scale a peak in Peru. The recreations are a bit overly dramatic but the story is riveting. Watch the trailer here

And lastly, letters to God. Hilarious. 

Here are a few favorites:
