Kids' Movie of the Month: My Neighbor Totoro - I loved this movie when I was younger and I watched it over and over in Japanese, even though at the time, my Japaense was not great and I did not understand a lot of it. Years later, my host family gave me my very own copy when I was heading home from a summer as an exchange student in Japan. I couldn't resist picking up an English copy when I saw it at Target a few weeks ago (thank you for finally releasing it Disney!) and it swiftly became one of Creed's favorites. He pretends to be Mei and asks Larry to pretend to be Totoro.
Recipe of the month: Ham & Cheese Sliders - Have have made this recipe twice, once for a picnic with friends and once for Ollie's blessing and both times it was a hit. DELICIOUS! Lots of people have been asking me for the recipe and I figure the easiest way to share is to post a link here.
Website of the month: The Crafty Crow - the best resource for craft projects to do with kids. Because we all need ideas to keep the kiddos entertained on afternoons too hot to spend at the park.
