There's a new craze that's sweepin the McGowan nation. It's unorthodox I know, but still the hottest new thing! Grady, being the trendsetter that he is, has once again reached new heights. Or is it new lows? Yes folks, Grady's the name and toe-sucking is the game. I am truly counfounded by this kid's gumby-like flexibility. I mean, I won a couple of sit and reach contests in elementary school, but that's nothing! When he lays on his back, it's like a contortionist circus act. I'm not sure if it's just general curiosity or the taste, but he loves it. I actually took the liberty to taste his toes and they are pretty good. To him though, they must taste like turkish delights compared to that bland rice cereal slop he's been eating. FYI, I also tried the toe sucking thing myself, but I was unable to raise my foot quite far enough. Although, I was able to get it close enough that the smell quickly quenched my desire to continue. Warning, if you are unable at this juncture to even touch your toes, attempting to taste them could be harmful to your health. Leave the toe sucking to the kids... oh and the thumb sucking too.

we survived...

Grady's first cold! He woke up last week w/ a fever and a horrible cough! I was so afraid that it was an ear infection or worse but the doc said just a nasty cold! We fired up the ol' humidifier and suctioned out the poor kids nose at least a thousand times! And then, of course Mommy caught it! Needless to say, we were thrilled to have Gigi here to take care of us!:-) It was definitely a bummer to be sick over the holiday but we still had a great Thanksgiving! We celebrated w/ Gigi & our dear friends Pete & Jolene at the good ol' Cracker Barrel!

Grady Man feelin' rough but such a trooper!

Me & Gigi

the whole gang!
