Your Personal Penguin

This is a story of a penguin who desperately wants to attend to a hippo instead of wander around the ice with other penguins. I can't claim credit for this - Sandra Boynton is a children's book genius. So, why am I sharing this then? You need to go listen to the recording that goes along with the book. Davy Jones (yes, of the Monkees) sings Your Personal Penguin.

In other news...

Thanks to an old navy wool curtain and a section of superyard, we finally have a family portrait.

Big thanks to my mom and dad also who pushed the shutter for the family one which meant I didn't have to find the book that came with the camera to look up (again) how to use the timer.

And that, she said, is that for this evening.

Next to my son. Luke, Boynton is my favorite artist. Strangely enough when Luke was little, he had dinosaur sheets designed by Boynton.

You do have a beautiful family.

Thanks so much for the compliments everyone!! Better be careful or my head will swell to match my hips! ;-)

Gina, honestly, I am quite large - I wear a size 20 pants, my shirts are usual 16/18s, and I weigh in at, um, well let's just say well over 200 pounds. That's not a small person. I'm fortunate, at least, to be relatively proportional and am blessed (a fervent shout out to the Creator here) with good bones.
