Groundhog Supper

It's that time of year again... Groundhog Day.  Five years ago on Groundhog Day we were boarding a plane bound for China to meet our sweet Maimie.  What a day that was!


Yesterday I had two little helpers to prepare our Groundhog Meal.  After making our traditional "groundhog loaf", we baked some "groundhog cookies".  
(Disclaimer:  No groundhogs were harmed during the making of this meal.)





Later in the evening, Steve, Mikaela, and I watched the movie Groundhog Day.


In other news, Tess is growing by leaps and bounds.  Her weight went from 12 to 16 pounds a week ago.  Judging by how much effort it takes to lug her around, she's probably gained at least another 4 or 5 pounds this week.  She's almost too big to weigh on the old baby scales at this point.
