Doggin' It

I am partial to dogs. My dog, Ellie, is a mix of beagle and coonhound. We got
her about 8 years ago through a rescue organization. We chose her over other siblings because she had been named Casey (serendipidity) and she was the runt of the litter. (My personal weakness) She has been a great family dog. But
because she has a double dose of hound dog her nose takes her places and she
has gotten out of our yard more times than I care to count.

Alphabet Books

Alphabet books have a charm all their own. Their combination of
illustration and type are irresistible. The many different kinds of
alphabet books are as limitless as the words that the letters of
the alphabet can make. Below are just a few nice examples.

Tree Houses

What kid doesn't want a tree house at some point in childhood? I went through a period when I wanted one, but there weren't any suitable trees in our yard.
I wanted one for my children too, but neither my husband or I had carpentry skills, so they had to go without too. Well, one can always dream...

My desire for a tree house kicked into high gear after seeing Walt Disney's Swiss Family Robinson in the theater. Why couldn't I have been born into a family like that?
