This past weekend Kenzie and I started some seeds inside. With such a short growing season here in the northeast, it seems beneficial to give plants a head start inside. We'll wait to put the carrots and corn directly into the ground after the final frost as these don't seem to transplant well.
Mackenzie, my little scientist also has her own experiment going on involving plants. For Christmas she recieved a Root Vue Farm which is basically a little container with a plexiglass side that allows you to observe how root vegetables grow underground. She has some radishes, onions and carrots planted and they have just started to sprout! I'll update her experiment later with some pictures as the actually veggies start to grow.

I would really appreciate it if you could come in the same door at the same time when coming in from outside. Waiting until I sit down on the couch after cleaning up from dinner is also unacceptable.
And cat, waiting until I walk away from the door after having just let out the dogs and meowing to got out-not okay. Also just because I am sitting, standing or looking out the sliding glass door it does not mean any you have to go in and out 14 times.
Tuukka, coming in the front door and running immediately to scratch at the back door to be let out again is not a fun game. The house is not a shortcut to the back so that you
can ambush Boomer and eat his face. Run AROUND the house next time. Lord knows you have plenty of extra energy to burn off. And speaking of burning off energy, You get walked at least once sometimes twice a day on most days. When we return from said walks it is not necessary for you to come back inside just because I do. Especially if it means as soon as I remove my outdoor clothing and sit down for a second you are at the door scratching to go out again. Just stay outside!!
Misty, aka: The Keeper of the Door, I will not leave the front door open in 20 degree weather while you take 30 minutes decide you actually want to go out or not. The door to the downstairs will remain closed at MY discretion not yours! It is closed for a reason- usually to keep Tuukka out of trouble or to block the noise from Thing 1 and Thing 2 (aka-Becca & Kenzie). You can sit there and meow and give me the evil eye all you want, it will remain closed!
Your prompt attention to these matters is greatly apreciated,

If you check out the link you'll see she actually used clothespins for the bodies and pon-poms for the hair. I did my own version with these little peg figures and found some blue boa material. Love the way the hair looks but there are now little blue feathers floating all around the house because once you cut off a piece of this stuff it sheds like crazy!
Other than the pegs, boa material, some paint and a fine tip black marker that's all there is to this little project.
