A note from the writers

Blogger seems to be having some trouble with its videos. They've been uploaded correctly and will run sometimes. If you can't see them now, come back another time and try again. It's totally a game of chance to get them to run. If anyone out there has a fix, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!

My Valentine

This guy...
...totally gets me. Ya'll, guess what I got for Valentine's day. A new website! If you know me, you know he was speaking my love language when he built the thing.

Although the new site is still a work in progress, we're taking the training wheels off this little blog of ours and moving on to more functionality and our own web address. So, update your bookmarks and your sidebar links...we've moved!

Thanks, Matt, for a lovely Valentine's Day surprise. I love you and your nerdiness more than I could ever say.

Find us at www.mscaspers.net/ohbladi now. See you there!

Honey Honey Princess

Last summer, we signed up for Netflix and one of the first movies we got was Mamma Mia. Matt and I realized that we didn't have nearly enough ABBA in our music collection. Fast forward to Christmas and now we have more ABBA in our music collection that one family probably should.

All that to say that we played a lot of the Mamma Mia soundtrack there for a while and now Ava's favorite song is ABBA's "Honey, Honey," performed by Amanda Seyfried. We have a nightly dance party to this song and have recently had to institute a two-play maximum for the song - just to save the sanity of any adults in the house.

Since this is such a defining moment in our day (it's the lead up to playing chase and hide-and-go-seek for the next half hour) we thought we'd share our ABBA inspired dinner and dance routine.

Enjoy!

This Week's News

Just in case the photo doesn't come out so great on your end, we're just pleased as punch to announce that Ava's going to be a big sister! We're expecting our new little guy or girl at the beginning of September. Ava's claiming she's getting a baby sister, but we'll all be surprised when the little one gets here. We're excited that soon we'll be a family of four!
