If you are feeling creative today but not so bakish, try whipping up this sock monkey dress for the office Christmas party. They'll simply go APE, darling. (What do you think this model is thinking? "I quit my teller job at First Bank in Terre Haute for THIS?") Her expression looks like shes trying to have a good attitude about being hazed.
Because it's snowing so badly we probably won't go to church, and because I was a part of the Ricky Bobby crowd this weekend at WalMart, this illustration is me today! Yes ... I'm actually going to have time to bake. Sort of. The plan is to make buckeyes, which technically, you do not bake. However, I have been known to make culinary mistakes of that magnitude. I want my 15 year-old to help me, but she is absolutely drowning in homework. I picked up her book bag on the way home from school Friday and just about fell over. So, I may ask her to take 15 minute breaks and help me, poor thing.
Here is said 15 year-old when she was about three. This is one of my favorite pics of all three kids. I believe she is sitting on a Fisher Price Doll House. (Fisher Price Little People: the #1 cause of bruised heels in American households.)
