i knew you could do it
wow thank you so much! so many good book suggestions, i started a list for myself and a shorter wish list on amazon for the grandmas. most excellent. also, i had forgotten about amy's toy post and went back to take a closer look at it. very very good reading if you are interested in handmade toys or buying well made things. we dont have too much plastic in the house anyway, a big tub of bristle blocks and of course the legos. eliot had accumulated (and broken) some plastic figures (transformers) that i really really REALLY thinned out the other day. all that to say that i also started a wish list for the grandmas at oompa toys, mostly because they had this feature and lets be honest, i have to make the internet as simple as possible for my mother. which will probably translate to me showing her the things online at my house (they have dial up at home...), her picking some things she likes, and me "buying" it with her credit card. does anyone else have to do this?? eah. whatever. she sure is cute.
did you all happen to look at molly's link in the comments to the christmas tins she gave out last year? good heaven above. that lady. sheesh. how do i make it on that list is my question?? i do like the idea of making lots of different things though. how fun. steph, granola? brilliant! molly, gingersnaps? duh. dare i admit that i dont like fudge? i know! i want to. i like chocolate. i just cant do the fudge. now fudge sauce, that is an entirely different matter. yum. anyway, until then have a cinnamon roll, wont you?
