Keith and I saw this video a few years ago, and for some reason we were reminded of it tonight. It cracks me up every time. Doesn’t it just seem like a movie that you might want to take the whole family to after Christmas dinner? They just don’t make good wholesome movies like this anymore.
Hat. August 4, 2008
These days Ellie has decided that everything is a hat. When she’s finished with her food she turns her plate upside down, puts it on her head and proclaims “Hat”. When she helps me put away the laundry she always goes for my underwear, puts them on her head and says “Hat”. This day she wanted to wear her diaper cover, her tank top, and her shorts all as hats at the same time. Apparently one hat is not enough for my girl so it was a good thing that daddy was there to help her get them all on. We were trying to get her into the shorts and tank at the time so I guess we kind of accomplished our goal.

Yup, She’s Her Daddy’s Girl. June 25, 2008

I Can’t Believe People Find It That Interesting. May 26, 2008
Thanks to my friend Beth, there is a video of me on youtube trying to eat a tablespoon of cinnamon in under a minute, yes these are the things we do when we hang out with the Huttons. Well today I decided to cruise by the old youtube, and check out the video. It turns out that the video has been viewed 1,532 times. Seriously!?!? I don’t even know that many people. Are complete strangers really that interested in watching me try to eat cinnamon and fail miserably? I guess this proves that some people have a lot of free time on their hands. Just in case you have not yet seen the video, I decided to post it here. Really, it’s not that exciting, especially not exciting enough to be viewed 1,532 times. Unless of course it’s Keith at work with a lot of extra time watching the video over and over again, but I don’t think even he wants to watch me spit cinnamon into a sink that many times.
Oh and by the way, my friend Mike was actually able to accomplish the cinnamon eating goal. But his video only has 75 views. There’s apparently no love for my friend Mike.
Snack Time Is Exhausting. May 15, 2008
I keep thinking that Ellie might be about ready to drop her morning nap, and just go to one long afternoon nap. Apparently I am wrong. I gave her a snack, and then we were going to go to the park. Well, I walked out of the room for a minute because I wanted to check the weather for tomorrow and I noticed that while I was gone Ellie was really quiet. Hoping she had not choked on a Cheerio I went in to check on her and this is what I saw.
