Search and Destroy were thrilled with their creations. With good reason – the resulting houses are adorable! (more…)

It’s Christmas season. Which means the preschool Christmas concert is upon us.

Destroy informed me he would be wearing his reindeer hat and fancy pants. He has those now. Mostly I was hoping that Search would be in pants. (more…)
