Patrick has been increasingly cuddly which is awesome! I'm absolutely loving it!
The are both looking so grown up these days! They amaze me everyday!
Our menu was: Best Ever Chuck Roast served over rice, green beans with bacon & onion, fresh rolls, and for dessert we had shortbread with raspberry almond filling garnished with raspberries, almonds, and chocolate almond sauce. All in all, one of our favorite Valentine's Days ever! How did you celebrate?
BTW, quiz results will be coming...I'm sure you've all been waiting and checking daily. :)

Patrick is also particular - about what he wears. His favorite thing is to be allowed to pick out his own clothes from the closet or at least to have a choice between two things. If I tell him to go and pick his clothes, he heads to the closet and searches for whatever is on his level, chooses what he wants, brings it to me, and sits down so I will dress him. You can tell when he feels well-dressed because he will beam from ear-to-ear and look down at his clothes. He loves to be complimented on how nice he looks. Hmmm...I wonder if his clothing interest will last.

As is often the case with such finds, I have no idea how I found this site, and this car. It is not supplanting the Veyron as my ultimate dream car, but I have found myself thinking about it ever since I saw it this afternoon. According to CNet News, Peugeot has a design contest. The winner will get to see his or her design not only created as a full-scale model, built by Peugeot and debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, but also integrated into an Xbox 360 video game!
The “N Jooy,” pictured at right, is one of ten finalists in the Peugeot contest. It was designed by Wesley Saikawa of Brazil and was inspired by old Formula 1 cars.
So anyway, it initially appeared to me that the “wheels” are actually spheres. My first thought was that this feature would make it extremely maneuverable – in theory, it could travel in any direction. But as I was driving home, a number of questions arose in my mind, and I can’t figure out how it all works . . .
Well, I just found another page with more pictures (click on “The 10 Winners”), and this one where the designer explains it. I don’t think English is his native tongue, as it doesn’t all quite make sense. But it does explain some of the questions I had. Cool!

Calvin and Patrick are definitely realizing what the camera is for and have very different responses. Calvin has started giving us cheesy looks such as the one below. Patrick stops doing whatever and looks unsmiling at us - also demonstrated below. All of that is making for some interesting photos. We are working hard to take candid ones before they realize and pose themselves.
