I have shirked my duties long enough. Heigh ho, heigh ho, up to the attic I go.

Here she is in front of the school. She couldn't stand still because she was too excited to go in and learn. It was also raining and we didn't have the umbrellas. Oh well.

Mini-me begins school on Thursday. Her teacher is coming over tomorrow for a little meeting. Mini-me really likes her teacher (we met her last Thursday), so I have pie in the sky hopes for this year for her.
We had a surprise visit from Aunt Becky and her BFF Lindsay tonight. Patch was very enthusiastic in his goodbye's: Bye Gecky! Bye Lind-say! Bye Gecky! etc etc. He is quite the chatterbox now. I love every moment of it.

- My favorite cupcake cookbook, called, appropriately, Cupcakes.
- A cupcake stand, just like the one I have to make the cupcakes (from the book Cupcakes) look fancy.
- A bath bomb shaped like a cupcake.
- A "Be Positive" pillow with an ant carrying, what else, a cupcake.
Thanks, Sharon, for organizing this! It was pretty fun.

I can't wait to see what action awaits tonight. I just hope it doesn't go as late as 1 am again...

Mini-me is screeching at Patch right now, so maybe it won't be so bad that she goes, even if she does need chapstick.

The strangest ride was the Dutch Wonder House. You went in this tiny house, sat on one of two facing wooden benches, and tried not to get sick as the house turned around you. The quarters were close, the other "riders" a little creepy, and the sensation just weird. Patch whimpered through the whole experience. I wanted to do the same.
Pictures will follow soon. We have worn out the camera battery with all our exploits.

It was fun to be the Queen.
And finally, we have the royal family. I'm on the left. Then there's Prince Dauntless, the Drab (Garrett Smith), Princess Winnifred, the Woebegone (Apple Reese), and King Sextimus (Michael Pellegrino). King Sextimus couldn't talk until the mouse devoured the hawk. I don't want to give away the show, but I was pretty speechless at the end.
