Melanie models her snazzy new paisley apron from Phoosh. (The Phoosh made me a matching snazzy blue paisley apron.)

This photo illustrates just how not-white this Christmas was. I'm not complaining — it was a beautiful day!

Bessie and her fort

After a morning of sitting around opening presents and eating bonbons, we all took a much-needed walk outside. I finally got to see Bessie's fort, of which I have heard many stories.

This fort has two entrances; the front porch entrance via this tree, or the back door via a ladder.

Inside Bessie's fort

Back when I was a kid, my fort didn't have a vice *or* a kitchen sink, let alone a complete set of dishes and silverware. Not that I'm jealous. This fort is just awesome.

Bessie looks down from upstairs

Yes, this fort has a second story. It's practically a guest house. I'm totally camping here on my next visit, if it's not reserved by someone else.

This salad was too beautiful to not photograph. Nice work, Mom. (Yes, it tasted as good as it looked.)
