1 elephant- average size
1 rabbit (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Cut elephant into bite size pieces. This takes about 2 months. Add water to cover and cook over open pit fire at 475degrees until done. Serves 4000 persons. Add rabbit for those who do not particularly care for elephant soup; but only if necessary, as most diners do not care for a hare in their soup.
Take it and may you find as much joy in it as I do.

We are attempting potty training. Oh the joy. Most of Caitlin's motivation comes from her "potty treats" (which are way bigger than I originally thought and can add up to a lot of chocolate when she uses the potty often). Today we managed better than yesterday and put on pretty panties after nap time, only to take them off, wet, half an hour later. We are on panties round 2.
Caitlin didn't want me in the bathroom when she took care of her dirty business, so she commanded-
"Go work on the compoooder."
"Go pay with Asheeeee, now! Go pay with Asheeeee!
"I did it! I did it! A baby one!"
She was so pleased.
In other happenings:
We went to Utah last weekend for my cousin, Tiffany's, wedding and got to hang out with Annie! She got married in the Salt Lake Temple, then later that afternoon we went to the open house of the new Draper Temple. Caitlin doesn't talk about the Salt Lake Temple, but definitely remembers riding the bus to the temple, which is a perfect thing for a girl who loves buses. (you park a ways away from the temple and they bus you to it)
Annie, not Ah-nee, as per Caitlin

Ashlee had her first taste of real food yesterday. Well, just baby rice which probably doesn't really count as real food. She did well for her first time, I think she may have swallowed about 5-10% of what I gave her. Eating sure takes a lot of mouth and tongue coordination. It's messy work right now, and even messier because she has to put her hands to her mouth just as the spoon advances there. Does that mean she's excited for the food, or trying to cover her mouth to keep it out?
Don't be fooled, there was never any crying. She is simply saying "What is this odd tasting and strange textured stuff?
I had to go to the picture archives and dig out Caitlin's first time in the high chair. She sure was happy, and she sure had a lot of hair.
