Low Budget Halloween Make-up

Learn from us:
Eating an entire bag of dried blueberries makes your mouth look a little scary. With this face, who needs a Halloween costume?!

Santa is Real. So is Elmo.

Watch this video.
I bet you'll forget in five seconds flat that Elmo is just a puppet manipulated by a man. I did. I watched this and cried. Yes, cried. I think every expectant mother would do just about anything to have a picture of her pregnant belly being hugged by Elmo. Wouldn't that look amazing in a nursery??

I can't wait to see the the documentary "Being Elmo" that opens next month.

To New York, With Love

Yesterday was a day of mourning and remembering. But today, I honor New Yorkers for their plunky spirit. There's nothing quite like The Big Apple (do only tourists call it that??).

PS - after watching this video, click on the red box in the right corner to see a previous improv video that's equally as awesome!

A Milestone

Dear Nate,
I wish you could stay small forever. I want to wrap you up in a blanket and cuddle with you  -- yes, I know, I know --you didn't even like doing that when you were a baby. Still, I can't help it. You'll always be my little peanut. I know it's inevitable but try not to grow up SO fast, okay?
Hugs and Kisses,
