I have to say. We're pretty lucky. There's this great place right across the street called Thriftway. It's a grocery store and they sell food. We were starting to get a little bit worried about our girls since winter is coming and people who aren't dressed properly in the winter tend to die.
Well, we ran across the street in the middle of the night to Thriftway's dumpster, like we do every Friday night, and started rummaging. One minute it wasn't there and the next minute it was: a completely unused, crisp, PAPER bag that was just Sam's size! If it doesn't rain or snow too much this winter, I think she'll be able to use it for another year. And it was F-R-E-E free! That's 100% less than for money!
While we were there, we found a new "blanket" for Lucy, so now her chattering teeth won't keep us up at night.

Here's a few adorable pictures of our sweet, beautiful, simply-perfect-in-every way Lucy.

I love my wife. I love how she's always curious and excited and willing to try the same things over and over again. Like beef stroganoff.
We started out by putting locks on the cabinets. Sam was a great help with the drilling while I catalogued the kitchen inventory to make sure the girls would still be able to sustain themselves.
And this was what happened.

So, I think for at least the next few posts we're going to try making fun of our friends a bit. We're going to parody the blogs of our friends, choosing folks from the list on the right. Please don't be offended. We really like all of you. At the very least, it might encourage people to look at the blogs of other people on the list that you might not have looked at otherwise to see who's getting spoofed.

Sam's preschool is in a lovely Methodist church that teaches them to sing their prayers and not talk about ghosts on Halloween. Her most memorable moment today:
We don't dress the girls alike on purpose, but sometimes the pink just takes over and you have to go with it.
Lucy doesn't talk yet, but her eyes say it all when you tell her to stop doing something, like sucking on the wet toilet paper she just grabbed from the toilet.

That's right, folks. Three girls for the Tolman household. On the bright side, we're starting to feel like we know what we're doing with girls and we won't have to buy very many clothes and all the females in this family are incredibly good-looking. On the the not-so-bright side, there's already too much damn pink in this house.
But seriously. Girls are lovely. This one will be just lovely as the other two and they'll all run about in their adorable dresses and sing songs about unicorns and love.
