So it's been about 7 months since my last P&P reading and as I have not found any other books to lose myself in, I cracked open my old favorite and will spend the next several nights lost in England with a man of good fortune.

And it's with great excitement that I started reading Harry Potter aloud to Carver. We have a rule in our house that you HAVE TO READ THE BOOK BEFORE YOU CAN SEE THE MOVIE! And as he's now 9, I think he's ready for book #1 and the movie over the holiday break. It's incredibly fun to read it out loud to him. I get to do voices and everything.

Z, on the other hand, still stands by his love of dinosaurs. He has 3 books right now that we read over and over and over again. Once in a while I try to sneak in a Curious George or Make Way for Ducklings, but unless there's a flesh-eating giant lizard on page one, it's a no go. What's a mom to do?

my dear cathy,

i can't tell you how much i owe you for your tip to see p&p years ago. i've seen (and read) it time and time again since then, and it never loses its beauty (neither does colin firth, let me tell you...).

i spent a good portion of my day reading about your amazing family. it's such a blessing to feel that i know you all still. it's not the same as making 'dillas in your kitchen on 35th or seeing carver's face when he saw lobster for the first time... but it's what we've got to work with at the moment :)

hello to all in colorado... i love you, engstroms!
