Today Moonbeam and I went out for a long hike. I took lots of photos, but none of them turned out all that well. The best shot I obtained was one of some deer droppings. I decided to spare you all of that one. Sock Fashion Expert worked on a top secret project. Super Catman and Artdog played outside. Archer wasn't feeling all that well and spent much of the afternoon wrapped in a pastel baby blanket playing video games and intermittently napping. No one was particularly excited about me taking pictures. I kept hearing scowls and "don't post this on your blog!" Finally, after taking 80 some shots, I gave up and went off to make dinner. Moonbeam grabbed onto my legs and yelled. This is a common place in my house and I'm never quite sure how to deal with that. Sometimes I feel frustrated because I'm trying to do something. Then I remember that she won't be little for long and so I should somehow include her in what I'm doing. After all, the other four seem to occupy themselves and at times I wish they'd pull on my leg fussing for attention! Today, she helped me make tortillas. I guess the best shots come when you're not trying to take them!

Mix and cover with plastic wrap for half hour to rest.
Then roll out handfuls on a floured counter top.

So easy, even a domestically challenged mom like myself can do it!
