Apparently, the Chime Tree has been attacked by some sort of burrowing beetle - maybe a bark beetle. Anyway, as we searched for a good limb on which to hang my newest chime, Melanie broke off a dead one. Look what was inside! ACK!

Yesterday was Mabry's FIFTH birthday, but everyone was out of pocket so we celebrated tonight with the traditional Mexican restaurant meal. Some friends joined whom we (or at least I) have not seen in quite a while. That made the meal extra special.

There is a birthday party in the future for the birthday girl, but Melanie was tied up the two weekends closest to the actual date. Gives us something to look forward to. :D

Here's Mabry with the sombrero and whipped cream all over her face...that's a tradition, too. :D

MELANIE! DO NOT ALLOW MABRY TO SEE THIS!

So, Mabry LOVES the British kids' show Charlie and Lola. So does Melanie. So do I. I try to remember to catch it on Saturdays and am terribly jealous that they can watch it during the week.

Charlie and Lola are siblings who remind me an awful lot of Parker and Mabry. Lola gets into all sorts of trouble without really trying or meaning to and Charlie helps her find a way out. They are adorable.

Last year I ordered a Charlie and Lola book for Mabry, which she is still reading, and a deck of Charlie and Lola Go Fish cards. Whenever we play Go Fish, we must speak with a British accent. I'm not that good at it, but Mabry is phenomenal...for a Southern Princess. ;)

This year I ordered a couple of Charlie and Lola items and received two Lola masks. I foresee much fun in the future. I must work on my accent first.
