The Icy Tundra

We finally had some snow. It was enough to cancel school which meant that dad didn't have to work on his birthday. Sam decided to break out the psychedelic snowman kit. I'm sure Mr. Pschedelic Snowman would agree that global warming is a myth, but we didn't really get a chance to have a long conversation about it since his first opportunity to exist happened February 13th, and he's pretty much gone already. Oh, well. We'll discuss it next year.

Toothless Joe Jackson

Sam lost another tooth. And she looks cute, and we had some nice soft lighting for this picture.

The ball's in your court, Hyrum Shakespear.

So, Becky made a lovely meal last night, which included cupcake meatloaves, mashed potatoes with secret cauliflower, and some warmed-up canned green beans. We emptied both cans into the warm-up-the-vegetables-in-the-microwave pot that everyone has, and then we warmed them up in the microwave, and then we began to serve everything up onto our plates.

Yes, that is a bright red grasshopper with its legs cut off. Whether it became red due to the preservatives/salt in the greenbeans or it was born red because it was a grasshopper from hell, I cannot be sure. We threw away all the greenbeans.
