i just discovered this fantastic book from the very cool mcsweeney's mcmullens. written and gloriously illustrated by brothers jon & tucker nichols, crabtree takes little readers on a journey through a very clutter home to find a pair of missing teeth. as you turn the pages crabtree gets helpful advice from his sisters to get organized--such a great message! kids will love the catalogue of objects on the pages and the illustrations are a.m.a.z.i.n.g. i delight in finding off-beat gems like crabtree! buy it at the m c s w e e n e y ' s s t o r e

adela is debuting her new thanksgiving outfit this week, while we are camped out in cold, rainy texas. she is wearing the ketiketa bolero sweater in the most scrumptious red, paired with classic black t-straps by nathalie verlinden. both of these items are special enough to dress up any outfit, yet we will get a lot of mileage out of them. s h o p s u g a r on s n o w
