Kurt says, "Are you sure you really want those on your blog?" He's just jealous b/c I put a video up of Brian Williams before I put up a video of him. Sorry, Kurty! Maybe you should do a video of you as James Bond- I would TOTALLY post it on here. :)

p.s. I hate Blogger's picture download software!!
Maybe this week, I will teach her to introduce our whole family at social gatherings. "This is my mother. She enjoys books, politics, and friendly banter. This is my father. He likes football, opera, and long walks on the beach. And this is my baby brother. He likes smiling, giggling, and playing Rolley with me." Who knows? Maybe she'll pick it up in Greek, too...

This next shot is what has now been infamously dubbed, "THE PICTURE" by Kurt and I. The picture is of a restaurant that was built on top of what used to be Bridget Bishop's orchard (she was one of the first people killed in the witch trials). The guide told us that this site is notoriously active in supernatural events. She said just recently, the Discovery Channel tried to film something for one of their programs (one on haunted houses or something), but they had tons of technical difficulties. Yeah, yeah, whatever, lady! That's what I said until I took this:I thought at first that it was rain or something, but it wasn't raining. I quickly took another picture which turned out like this.
I showed the guide and she told me it was ectoplasm. I had captured a ghost on film! Me, the unbeliever! Say what you will, but I think it was Bridget Bishop trying to tell me to stop taking pictures of her property! :) Isn't it crazy? I have been talking about THE PICTURE ever since I took it. I think I might try to sell it. :)
Before Kurt took this picture, he said that Madi was laying on Max's lap with her arm around him. As soon as she saw the camera, she rolled over. Still a cute pic.
Playing at the playground. I like this picture because, sadly enough, it's one of the only ones I have of the fall leaves.

Funny as that was, it did not make me laugh as hard as a previous Thursday's events. We were driving home from Kindermusik a few weeks ago, Madi entertaining herself in her car seat. It was a beautiful day, so I had the windows down. Suddenly, I hear, "OH NO!! MY SHOES!!" I looked back and see Madi craning her head in order to locate the pink crocs she had just chucked out her window. I quickly pulled into a driveway, watched as a truck plowed over her shoe (with Madi shouting "Oh no! The truck, Mommy! MY SHOES!!"), ran into the middle of the street (Concord Ave- one of the busiest streets in Cambridge) and snatched the shoes right before another car tumbled over them again. I returned to triumphant calls of "You did it, Mommy! Thanks!" coming from the backseat.
