Okay, so I know that I have already shown a Megan dancing video on here, but this is even funnier...and, I am not making you watch it. You have your own will, so if you are tired of pictures and movies of my sweet little girl, then just skip this one.

Her dress was a gift from Aunt Suzy, she had cute little shoes on earlier, but the day got a little crazy and I didn't get the picturesque shots I hoped for.
She really liked the eggs (and graham crackers). She thinks the lamb puppet is pretty great, even though I was picked on without mercy because, "Real lambs don't sound like that."

This is the view looking into the room from the foyer. Pay special attention to the lovely blue and green combo...Wow, terrible...
A year ago, my aunt gave me a set of tea dishes that belonged to my Grandma Warner. I got it out the other day b/c I was considering using it for a tea party at church and decided I might as well display it.
Here is a token picture of Megan as I know she is the main reason most people read the blog:
This is a view from the parlor looking into the dining room, two sides of the room have french doors (which I love).
Here is the view facing the front of the house.
The ceiling has this cool gold wallpaper (one of the only things I like that the previous owners did) but some of it needs to be re-pasted. The ceiling fan will most likely be leaving when we remodel.
Remember the hand-me down furniture? Here is a piece I really like that my parents gave us...except it's missing a key element. I was able to donate a couch that was given to me to our church nursery project. It just wasn't what I had in mind for the room.
This is the view going into the foyer from the parlor.
I know all of you wanted a closer look at this lovely mural...more handiwork of the previous owners.
So my current project is to decide what and how to make this space look inviting and complete without spending a fortune. I think a vast improvement could be made by simply painting, I'm just not sure what colors I want to go with. I love the woodwork throughout this floor, so I want to pick colors that highlight/compliment the wood. I'm thinking yellows, greens and accents of red, but I'm not sure. I went color sampling at Lowe's yesterday and checked out some design books from the library today...Hopefully, I'll make up my mind before too long. Of course, then we have to find time to do it.

This is a modified scraplift. I simplified it quite a bit, the original used patterned paper and more embellishments. I haven't used a plain white background in ages, but I think I like the overall look.

Second story. When Megan was probably oh, 4 months old, Chad was carrying her around the house and showing her things. He took her into the guest room and was showing her her reflection in the mirror when I happened to walk by and overhear this conversation:
Chad: "Look at the little girl, she's got your same outfit on! That's your twin sister. Her name is Bacon."
Katy: (I could not help interjecting at this point) "Did you just say her twin's name was Bacon?"
Chad: "Yeah, it's the only thing I could come up with that rhymes with Megan."
Katy: "Bacon does not rhyme with Megan"
Chad: "Well, (long pause), it would in a song."
At this point, I made a few comments about how we occasionally eat bacon and doesn't that seem weird and then, I left the room shaking my head...

Megan has begun doing a lot of exploratory crawling (as opposed to the crawling required to get a toy in a 2 foot radius). When asked to demonstrate this skill, she generally just sits there, but we have found that she will perform if the proper bait is used. In the following example, the camera served as the said bait.
Viewer warning, the end of the video is not appropriate for those with a tendency toward motion sickeness...
I think Megan likes to go for walks. I say I think because she remains mostly still and expressionless the whole time. No excitement, but no fussing either...I'm not sure what that means. I think she finds the whole experience mellowing. She even fell asleep on our walk today and remained asleep while I unbundled her and got her to bed.
Oh, did I mention that after I threatened to remove the snow shower curtain from our bathroom that it snowed 10 plus inches in the next 48 hours?
