1. Daisy might belong to my little man, but she owns my heart. She's a snuggler. Yesterday she sat on my lap for 45 minutes while I
Isn't she adorable??
Even my animal-avoider daughter cuddled her and then admitted her cuteness.
We're making great strides.
Speaking of great strides...
2.My youngest finally decided he was ready to ride a bike. Yes. He's seven.
I was older than that when I finally learned. Hey! No snickering!
A couple of years ago we tried to push it, but the lessons always ended in wailing and gnashing of teeth. Of everyone involved. I think my husband was afraid he would go to college on a tricycle. ;)

3. I received Photoshop Elements9 as a Christmas gift. For the last 3 months I felt like an idiot every time I turned it on. Even the "Photoshop for Dummies" didn't help. Ignorant I tell you.
Last night, my uber talented friend Heather gave me a personal tutorial. She knew she was in trouble when I asked how to open the program. We made great strides, through her patience and talent. (See, Heather, I made the collage above!)

The icing is VERY lemony, so I tinted it pink and called them Pink Lemonade Cookies for my 6th grade bible study girls. They like cute names. And dessert.
Check out this food blog. It is fabulous. She is a personal friend and I can promise that everything on her blog is creme de la creme for your inner foodie.
I'm not going to let the fact that I only have 4 points in my list of "making strides." Maybe I should have titled it "making baby steps." Oh well.
