Fancy Nancy and Priscilla

Just finished bedtime stories with Megan (naughty Jacob was already in bed) and just had to share these two favorites of ours. Fancy Nancy by Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss-Glasser (Neill Library has 7 different Fancy Nancy books.)

There are several Fancy Nancy books in hardback and now many more new ones in paperback that are easy readers. I just peeked at the website ( and the release dates are posted. There's also a couple sticker books too.

I would happily read these books to Megan every night if she asked me to. They are very well written and the illustrations are fabulous. If you have a little girl in your life, these are perfect!Priscilla and the Pink Planet by Jocelyn Hobbie (Neill Library has 4 of these books.)

This is a newer series to me but I've already fallen in love with them. Similar to the Fancy Nancy books, the author and illustrator are amazing!

There's also Priscilla and the Pink Planet, Priscilla Superstar, Priscilla and the Splish-Splash Surprise and Priscilla and the Great Santa Search.

There's one other book I'm dying to share but it's an Easter one and I'm going to wait at least until March. It's my all time favorite holiday book and you'll want to check this one out!

This Thursday, Feb. 26th! :)

1) Kindergartners are off this week in Pullman Public Schools due to conferences. Please let Claire know if you would like to bring your sweet Kinder with you to PS.
2) Clean-up -- we no longer have to put the tables away as the new custodian at SUMC would like to do this. The request is that we continue to set up chairs as we have in the past, and simply move the tables back towards the office (don't put legs down, he'll do that too).
3) For all of you participating in the blood drive this Tuesday running from 1:00-5:45, thanks! There are 3 more slots available for donating if you, your significant other, a friend, etc. are interested (note: child care is available).
See you Thursday,

Furniture anyone?

Our friends are in the process of moving away from Pullman and they have some nice furniture they'd like to sell this weekend.

  • Charcoal Grey Couch: $250 OBO - 5 yrs old, very comfortable. (Yes, that's Sydney modeling how comfy it is for reading in your jammies.)

  • New brown, microsuede couch $450 - , purchased to stage our home, barely used.
They need to sell these Friday (yep, that's today) or Saturday or they will be moving them to Portland.

Let's can email me at or call Juli at 208-412-8750.

Free Movie Showings
I hear the new theater is really nice and, certainly, the price is right.

Summer PS Mentor Leader/s???

Fun in the sun, friends, time for your kids to play, an opportunity to serve other moms . . .
Does this sound like fun or interesting to you?
I'm still looking for that special TH PS mom or moms to 'jump out of the wood-work' and volunteer to serve as mentor leader/co-leaders for the summer PS program.
Let me know (and realize, this is pretty low-key and is a great way to serve in a leadership position for the 1st time too :)).

Housekeeper Recommendation

We're thinking of hiring a housekeeper for a couple of months after baby #2 arrives and I was wondering if you guys had any recommendations? It's hard to trust a stranger in your home, so I would be grateful for any information or help you have. Thanks!

Baby Gear

Say, I'm pregnant and realizing we need to start gearing up for this little fella. Before I go shopping, I thought I'd see if anyone wants to sell/pass along anything that I'm looking for. So, here is my wish list:
  • a dresser/changing table situation
  • baby monitor
  • white noise machine
  • glider/ rocker
  • double jogging stroller

Thanks for peeking in your basements for me!

Pasture Raised Chicken, anyone?

I know that several of us got chickens and turkeys from the Zakarison Partnership last year and I wanted to put the info out there for anyone else who is interested. The chicken is awesome and raised responsibly/locally. They are working with two WSU Organic Ag couples who want to learn how to do what the Zakarisons are doing here in Pullman, so they are looking to expand their orders this year. If interested, contact Eric Zakarison at or on his cell at 509-595-3585.

Kitchen Rugs?

Anyone know where to find a large sized rug to go under a dining table?
We have our table in the kitchen and the size of the current rug is just too small.
