I'm baack.

Yup, I'm back from my mini vacation in Utah.  As I threatened, we took the kids to the bounce houses, ate at In-and-Out Burgers, and went to Ikea.  But our trip was so much more than just that.

I realized that my in-laws coffee pot looked just like Darth Vader:

The kids got to sit in an airplane at their grandpa's work:

Jubee danced in grandma's living room:

Sammy took an occasional nap:

Jubee made an Ellen Ripley pose with a nerf gun:

And I bought these throw pillows at World Market:

Now, I know this may seem a little dull for a vacation, but that's what I think a vacation should be; Coffee, food, resting, shopping, hanging out with awesome people.

And I know, I know, the owl craze is getting a little old.  I still like them, though, they remind me of Glimfeather in The Silver Chair.  Actually, I'm really into all the woodland creatures right now, because of Narnia...every mouse is Reepicheep and every beaver is Mr. or Mrs. Beaver.  Haha.  I think I'm about full up on owls, though, this throw pillow is probably going to be it, I just couldn't resist because I love the colors and the buttons on the eyes and everything.  I love the green pillow, too, because of the same kind of buttons, and the orange-y pink pillow is yellow on the other side, and the blue pillow is green on the other side, and I love the color combinations here.  I'm renting so my walls are white and I need all the color I can get.

FYI...I don't want owl tchotchkes for Christmas.  Please.  I think I now have enough now.  I have a terrible mental image of having to buy a curio cabinet to hold hundreds of little ceramic owls.  The only exception is something handmade, if you are going to buy/make me a illustration like this...

...I'll take it.
