My old friend Caroline has been taking care of these kids every Friday, and last night she stayed while Adam and I went to see the new James Bond. (It was just OK, but what's not to like about 90+ minutes of Daniel Craig getting all dirty and changing clothes.) Anyway, Franny painted everybody's face while we were away. I'm told that Franny and Caroline were eagles and Henry was a mean pirate.
We got word yesterday that we get to go to Obama's inauguration, which is very exciting and means that we will spend two nights away from home. Caroline has agreed to stay at our house and take care of these children and dogs and frogs. Sucker!
