We all really enjoyed this book, a collection of short stories. Our favorite was: The Dragon Tamers, which is the story about the beginning of all cats.
E. loves the Burgess books, and I remembered he particularly enjoyed this one that we had read together a few years back (but had forgotten). This time around it was just as good, and all the silly stunts that Old Mr. Toad pulls were just as funny.
A very funny mystery book we listened to on audio, about a mysterious bunny. The story is told by the family's pet dog.
An Autumn/harvest book, that will get you all fired up to bake some bread. A very courageous princess and a storyteller dragon save the kingdom.

A small town tale, with a sweet mystery to solve.
I love VanAllsburg, and anyone wishing Autumn to stay away a bit longer would love this story. A good picture book for older children.
A must read chapter book, for anyone wishing to turn their home into an Antarctic free-for-all. E. gave it 4 thumbs up.
J. can't get enough of this silliness (that and being able to say every color over and over again). It was one of E.'s favorites as well.

7 things about me...
1 I believe orange is the best color. It is so full of light and happiness.
2 My second job (mom, being the 1st and most important), is as a librarian.3 If a day has gone by and I have not created something, I feel as if the day has not been lived fully.
4 I have always wanted to learn to play a musical instrument, maybe this will be the year.
5 I have lived on a farm, waaaaaaaay up in the isolated mountains of central Mexico (some of my happiest memories are here).
6 As a child I loved wearing buckle shoes, my favorites were a brownish red leather pair. I now own only one pair, and they are made out of light brown canvas.
7 I love my husband's eyes.
7 blogs I love.........
1 small wonders Your home, your boys, your way...beautiful.
Gardengloriousgoodness, if that was a word, that is what her blog would be.
3red dirt mother
I love Lizz's down to earth blog. The simple, loving, learning world she has created for her family is an ideal way of life that would do all good. She and her family have worked together to create the most amazing shop on Etsy, it is my favorite: Zoo Loo Naturals.
This woman has chickens in her yard (really, just that is enough for me), not to mention the fact that I am enraptured with her photography. Her blog is a sweet, honest look at the beauty in life.
5 waldorf mama
I want to live at her house! Waldorf Mama :: Natural Beauty.
Soooooo creative. I love, love, love, her art and her animal masks are so too much.
7 Pocketful of Bliss
Last, but most definitely not least. This is my sis-in-law's blog. She is a crazy, fun-lovin', homeschoolin', super-de-dooper mom, and scrapper extraordinaire. Love her!
...if you would rather not participate, that is so okay. I just wanted you to know that your blogs truly are lovely. Peace and love. Anna
