Ratatouille...well done Michael!
* had a request for the recipe, so here it goes. This is what we did:
We cut into chunks (maybe a little larger than a die)
1/2-Eggplant (pealed and then chunked)
1-yellow bell pepper
1- red bell pepper
1 whole med sized onion (we did yellow onion)
1- yellow squash
-We put about 2 tsp garlic (we used minced from a gar) and a few tablespoons olive oil and onion in the electric skillet and saute for 3-4 minutes.
- then we added the zucchini and squash and saute for another 3-4 minutes.
- then we added the eggplant, saute for 3-4 minutes.
-then add the red and yellow peppers, saute another 3-4 minutes.
-then add the tomatoes and saute another 3-4 minutes.
-then we added the balsamic vinaigrette (we used Kraft Light Balsamic Vinaigrette), covered, and simmered 10-15 minutes. We might have simmered less, so the vegetables weren't super mushy.
Michael did the cooking part, I helped with the cutting, so I hope that I interpreted his notes right. But this does seem like a recipe that you can cater to your tastes, more or less of things etc...

Luke loves to "play" soccer with Michael. It's very fun to watch how excited he gets!
On a side note: This just happened while I was loading this video on....
I've mentioned before that Luke loves the bath. So when I heard Michael running the water in the master bath (the big bath) I undressed Luke and got him ready for the bath. We think it's to dang cute to see him then running all through the house to the bath just as fast as he can (yes, naked). But today he went running towards the other bathroom and I had to get his attention so he would run towards the big bath. Luke all of the sudden stops, puts his hand on his privates, looks at me and then bends down to touch the carpet. Right then and there I knew what he had done...he went pee on the carpet! But the part that I found amazing was that he knew what he had just done.

Luke's 15 month appointment

Does anyone remember...
"Rodeo Grandmas," a television advertisement featuring four women ages 68 to 92 who adoringly yodeled and roped viewers into "corralling" WaMu's new concept of free checking for its customers.
I don't know why I've been thinking about this for a few months?

Love that bubble bath!
A bath is a really good way to kill some time around here! Luke loves the bath. So when ever he is cranky or we have some extra time before nap or he gets messy self feeding or it's a bit to early for bed, he gets a bath! I think once I spent 45 minutes watching him in the tub! He doesn't like the getting out so much though!

I have lots to blog about...
First our news....
we will be having a.....
GIRL! (so the lack of evidence says)
Everything looks good and normal but I am having troubles with sciatica pain or whatever, hopefully it won't get worse, but if it does there may be physical therapy.
Now the other stuff. But I'll leave it brief, and post more details later. We are back from our 2 1/2 week vacation to the Seattle area. Lots of fun...lots of snow. Busy unpacking, doing laundry, getting the house put back together (again), and trying to get Luke back on a normal schedule...no small task, any of those!
