Oh the Irony

In the spirit of teaching my children to give thanks for the the thoughtfulness of others, we drew and colored thank you notes for everyone of their Christmas gifts over the holiday break. And then the notes have sat on my desk, waiting for ME to write MY part of the thank yous before we can send them. Getting right on it!

In a totally unrelated picture, here are the boys enjoying the local climbing artichoke. What, you don't have one in your community? There's a matching lettuce throne and veggie reading bench near by. I like this form of public art.

Updated: Mir pointed out that I mislabeled the artichoke as an asparagus, oops!

Uhhh... isn't that an artichoke? Or does it have a long stem somewhere I can't see...?

Yes, you're right. Is there another word "typo" when your brain misses the whole word, not just a letter?

Great looking climbing structure. First I thought it was a cactus without thorn.

We just have a Thomas Jefferson and a copy of the Statue of Liberty. I'd much rather have some nice vegetables. Or perhaps more appropriately, a sturgeon and a hunk of cheese.

Now I will be forever sad that we have no climbing artichoke. Oh, the poverty of it all!

How cute! Do you think that if my kids had those to climb on, they would be more willing to eat their vegetables?
