SHAYLA SAYS: Correct! This is a hedge apple. People put them in their basements to keep the spiders away, but that's a myth. It doesn't work. The one dad gave me was frozen, but it's not any more. Mom said we had to get rid of it. Dad found it when he was hiking through the woods with Uncle Jeff before the party and he brought it to me. They're green and yellowish and they have wrinkles and remind me of a monkey brain. Wasn't that gross? Thanks for playing my game. I hope you had fun too. Mom and I really laughed with your silly guesses!

December 2004. Making Gingerbread Houses with Aunt Marty

I guess this wouldn't fit in Santa's sleigh; it arrived last night! Shayla danced with her ballet barre late into the evening.

Traditions are so hard. Tonight we will do something different. That should help, I hope!

Thomas Team

It is just before midnight on 24 December in Australia. It is hot and we have the airconditioners running to keep us cool. Bet you can't imagine that at Christmas time?

Our family just wanted you all to know that we are thinking of you this Christmas.

God Bless you all.

You know, we found some hedgeapples out at my parents house last fall and we tried them in the four corners of our basement, which I always "lovingly" refer to as the spider basement. We didn't see a lot of them.

But then that could also have been due to the fact that the Blanchard River entered our basement last August and wiped them all out.

I wanted to say it was the hedgeapples.
