K's birthday

What should I do for my husband's 41st birthday this coming Friday? I'd love to do something special - but my brain is fresh out of ideas. Suggestions???

Micah's new chew toy

Hi Momma! Boy, those toes sure do look pretty!
What do you mean, I'm not supposed to chew on other peoples' toes? Why not?

Forget it! With toes that pretty, I'm just gonna have to have me a sample - just a little lick!
Oh, yummy! Just like I thought - a little sweet, a little salty! Just the way I like my toes!!!

Ha, Ha, Momma! I made you laugh! It tickles when I suck on your toes, huh? Well, cool! What a neat trick I now have! I can make my momma laugh all the time, now!
