We've got the Pox...

.....over here on Elizabeth Hill.

Just the Noodle, mind you. But she's got them in her throat, in her ears, on her toungue - yikes.

Guess what else? She's starting Violin lessons at school. She's so excited. Today was her first lesson - and of course she missed it, but one of the the Moms called to tell me that her first assignment is to name her violin. Right now "Jane" and "Sarah" are in the running. I don't mean to leave you all hanging, but I'll let you know when a decision has been made. In the meantime, I'm lobbying for "Tina Fey".

What? I like Tina Fey. She's funny!

Amy, I have that house tour waiting in the wings for you. There are a few choice photos I couldn't copy for some reason, so I'm going to try again tomorrow.

One more thing: I watched a show last night:


And I'm not embarassed to say that I watched it solely for the fabulous eye candy that is Simon Baker.

Oh yes I did.

When it came on? Zuddy gave me the 'eye-roll with a half back twist'. For those of you who don't know what that is? Its when your husband throws his head back and slightly to the side while rolling his eyes in exasperation at your bad TV viewing habits.

And then? He calls you on the fact that you could care less about the content of the show you're about to watch by suggesting you turn down the sound and play some nice John Mayer while you watch the moving picture show.

Gol-ly I love that Zuddy. He always comes up with the best ideas!

Agreed...Haven't seen the Mentalist but Simon Baker certainly is easy on the eyes.

Looking forward to the house tour!

I'll be there in an hour. No vaccinations for my kiddos means I gotta get 'em exposed. See you soon..

Ah! Don't you wish - wouldn't that be fun? We could sit around and watch tv, drink coffee and look at Seattle real estate for you and Zud.

Poor Noodle! In her throat and ear and on her tongue?! That sucks! But how cool that she's going to start violin! Kris used to play, and I've been thinking of getting him a used violin for his birthday. Tell Noodle that her cousin's husband plays the violin, too ;-)

Hilarious--Zud is always full of brilliant ideas!

The pox....eeewwww I remember it well. I exposed my DD for years and she never caught the pox. Just before she turned 12 she caught them. Bad...very bad. They were everywhere but her eyes. She looked like something from one of those alien mutant sci fi flicks.
I hope your little one has a much easier time for both your sakes.

Poor, poor noodle! I hope they get better FAST! Keep lovin' on her - sounds like she needs a LOT of it!
