Good Morning Karl, coffee?

Everyone, this is Karl. Karl, this is everyone.

Who is Karl you ask? Well, Karl is our new pet. I found him this morning behind the door of our daughter's playroom. He was just hanging out on his back and when I saw him, he said "Oh hello. Little help here?"

Sidebar: Please ignore the unfinished wall behind Karl, we live in a constant state of unfinishedness that I have grown to blissfully ignore until I have to take a picture of the area. Besides, this wall is behind a door which is almost always open. And good thing too, since this is apparently where I keep my crazy-huge insects.

So I righted Karl on his feet and immediately pushed him into a large coffee can. Not just a large coffee can - a HUGE coffee can. Because Karl is impressive. Just look at the SIZE of him. I put a quarter in the can so you can get some reference. Immediately after I took this shot he ate the quarter.

I named him Karl because any insect living inside a home screams Marxism to me. BTW - I may not be one hundred percent sure what Marxism is, but HUGE insects living in your home is definitely not Capitalistic.

Strick A Pose (Recital 2012)

A friend of mine was showing me pictures from a recent trip and she described one of the photos as their "signature pose". I immediately made fun of her. None of you who know me are surprised by this. HOWEVER, it occurred to me that I have been creating a "signature pose" dance photo of Hannah for the last four years. Here is this year's signature pose: And here is all of the signature poses together: Thank you D for giving me something to call the first photo. "Signature pose" sounds better than "Yearly-dance-photo-that-type-A-personality-Kim-likes-to-subject-her-daughter-to". :-)

Hannah Ballerina

Can you tell this sweet thing was running a 102 fever with an upper respiratory infection? Yeah, me neither. Needless to say, Hannah was a trooper through her dress rehearsal this past weekend. Hopefully she'll have enough time to recover before the recital. Fingers crossed! :-)
