Hmph. (Some people don’t appreciate the honor of assistantship bestowed upon them.) Let’s GO, Morgan!


She’s making a list.

She’s gonna find out who’s naughty and nice.

Come on, Dumplin. This is a big job. A starring role. It’s been handed to you this year. Make the most of it! You’re a star! Or a starlet! It’s your BIG BREAK!

    Congrats on another tableau accomplished! I must admit I’m already having a hard time reading the calf posts and thinking about her eventual demise.

    Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones is a awesome book, the second one to it is pretty good too. Sorry I couldn’t help but notice she was reading it! Dogsbody is another awesome book by her too! Hope she enjoys it,

    Merry Christmas, and yes, as soon as I saw a hat on that baby, I knew she’ll probably stay.

    I also wanted to ask about Howl’s Moving Castle! Can Morgan please post about it to her blog? Anyone who loves Darcy and Lizzie clearly has reliable taste.

    By the way, that last photo looks like the makings of an irresistible Christmas card. Enjoy the remaining holidays!

    Now I have heard of dressing out a calf, but you really have a whole new meaning to dressing a calf. So doggone adorable. That last picture is so cute I laugh every time I look at it.
    Merry Christmas, Suzanna and Morgan.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
