and i know the monkey photo has nothing to do with this post, but he looks like he's thinking about an "escape" and he's one of my favorites... i don't know if i ever showed him to any of you, he belongs to my nephew morgan now.

that monkey is the cutest Jes. And I love reading about you- and funny..I just finished the ... potato peel society last night as well. I thought it was a great book. those types of heroines always remind me of you- strong willed, and true and brave and quirkyish. :)

Hey there!! The monkey is great- I thought I would let you know that Grant has been sleeping with his "zeeba" for the last little while (not tonight- it needs a "bath"). I think I may just have to commission you to make some more stuffed animals for him... he NOW is loving all of his!!

And the post is cute too- I don't think I would know how to answer a lot of those questions :)

i swear I could wander around places like michaels for forever... and DI, and yes, Kenai Lake is the ultimate, I thought it was "the cabin" but since I've been up there with the new red cabin, I know it's not just "the cabin" it's "kenai lake" i love ya sis...
