Apparently you can find all kindsa Spiderman stuff on the cheap. I snagged these socks from one of those dollar bins by the front door of Target... You know the ones. They're dangerous.


And speaking of dollahhs check out what I found at the dollar store. There was a ton of Spidey stuff, but this was the illest. IT'S A SPIDERMAN HEAD WATERGUN THAT SPITS WATER OUT OF THE MOUTH.


I heart it.

Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to me and everyone! I've got a club going... Here are all my celeb friendz who are also 30 this year. They're all coming over tonight to celebrate, so watch out for that pesky Ann Arbor paparazzi on my block. And JTT, for goodness sake, WEAR A SHIRT.

HAPPYYY BIRFDAY MOMMYYYY LOL YOU'RE OLD

lucky


Happy St. Patrick's Day from Karen in Color and Warwick Davis, the man who has a monopoly on little people movie roles. I am not kidding... Star Wars, Harry Potter, and- the most prestigious of them all- THE LEPRECHAUN SERIES. Seriously you must celebrate today by watching Leprechaun 6 featuring the rap "Lep in the Hood, come to do no good".


I think Violet should be him for Halloween this year. As far as I'm concerned, there aren't enough baby costumes in the "creepy" genre.


lolz


BONUS PIC of baby Warwick!

baby's back, baby


WHAT DOES A BABY HAVE TO DO TO GET A BLOG POST AROUND HERE, AM I RIGHT?


MOM YOU HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO DO BLOGGINZ. JUST PUT ME IN MY SWING


LOL I LOVE ITTTTT


SOMETIMES IM ALL EEEEEEEEEEEEEE


AND THEN THE NEXT SEC IM ALL ZZZZZZZZZZZZ

leave me alone


I miss making crafts. I miss rocking out. I miss sleeping.

More updates are coming. I'm just too cranky right now.

game on


Mike convinced Violet and I to play one of his favorite card games, Dominion.


Ok so it was his birthday... so it didn't take much convincing.



The face of winning. And I mean that in a completely non-Charlie Sheen way. Seriously, that dude needs to come up with some new material.


And when she doesn't win card games, Violet sometimes fights crime.

Gossip Girl: plot lines are stale, fashion is still hot.

celebrate good times come on


Wellll according to the "multi-ethnic perfect teeth club" we gots lots to celebrate. It is the two year anniversary of Karen in Color!

Hmmm what has happened on the ol' bloggy blogginz this past year? I did some movie reviews, gave a shout out to TV neighbors, rocked out to some great music, rocked out at some great shows, and rocked out to some great dad singing. I also did some spastic gardening, read lots o books, and played some silly board games with silly friends.

And of course, it was (and still is) all about the baby. I declared her existence, and from then on the speculation about what she would look like began! I got bigger and bigger and celebrated her upcoming arrival with friends... and then she CAME.

Since then she's been taking over my blog with her adorable squeaky clean face and shifty expressions, which caused quite the backlash among some of my feline friends.

Oh, and I shot a gun and listened to terrible Christmas music. Those are unrelated.
THE END.



Annnnnd before I get yelled at from my sweet baby, I must also stress the importance of another special event- Violet's 3 month bday!


LOOK AT ME I CAN WALK NOW.
No you can't... I'm holding you up in this photo.
OH.


BUT I CAN READ NOW
Sweetie, reading doesn't mean holding your head over a book.
WHAT IS IT THEN
It's about understanding the words on the pages.
WHAT ARE WORDS WHAT ARE PAGES
I'll tell you later.
WELL I GOT OTHER SKILLZ TELL EM MOM

It's true. Violet has acquired several skills in her three short months of life:

-Holding her head up high when lying on her tummy!
-Rolling over from her tummy to back at 2 months!
-Starting to make conversation! (conversation = nonsense talky sounds)
-Standing and bouncing with help!
-Using her hands to grasp things and put them in her mouth!
-Grinning at people and toys and pictures... from across the room!
-Sleeping up to 7 hours at night in one stretch!



A digital flip book, if you will, of Violet's third roll! (It came right after her first and second, so Mike got the camera ready)

my name is karen

and here you will find things that i make and see.
