I started a fire

But only a little one...
I am not the chef in our family. I have like 5 things I can make and usually try to cook once a week to give Joe a break. Tonight I was making spaghetti and decided to include some garlic bread which I was cooking right under the broiler in our oven. Apparently I left it just a tiny bit too long because when I opened the oven to check on it there were flames. Being the quick thinker that I am I heaved them, pan and all, out the back door into the snow.

The good news is that our smoke detector has been checked and is in working condition.

I also thought I'd include a few new pictures of Lucy. She's become very mobile by rolling around and doing the low army crawl, but hasn't quite got the hang of actually crawling. Just this week she's started to get up on all fours and rock back and forth, so I'm sure it won't be long. She was showing off a little tonight and I snapped these shots. Enjoy!

I didn't know you don't cook! I'm glad your fire alarms work! Mine are very sensitive! They go off when I boil water or open the oven... Lucy is growing up so fast! We need to come play after your work one day-or you guys come over here! You get off at two right? Come by any time!

I'm so glad you threw the whole pan out, that made it a lot funnier! And Lucy is adorable!

Rhonda just read this and says you have your cooking skills in your DNA!
LOVE the Lucy pix! I want a copy of the one with her bum in the air in front of the couch!
