Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July! We’re going to take a few days off here at Caterpickles Central to enjoy the summer and maybe learn a few things about vintage cars. ‘Tis the season for vintage cars, after all.

“What’s a sugar plum, and why does it get its own fairy?”

The holidays have finally struck here at Caterpickles Central. I wasn’t entirely sure it was going to happen this year, seeing as how there are still flowers blooming outside our front door, but I chaperoned The Ten-Year-Old’s field trip to see The Nutcracker last week, and now I’ve got questions about sugar plums dancing in my head.

Throwback Thursday: The Four-Year-Old writes Elvis

The Ten-Year-Old has been an Elvis fan for at least six of her ten years. There have been a few rocky points in their relationship, however. Like that time The Four-Year-Old learned that Elvis didn’t really like cats. And the day she discovered that she didn’t really like his Christmas album. So she wrote — or rather had me type — this letter to Elvis giving him a bit of timely advice. 

Merry Christmas!

We still can’t quite believe it really happened. Thanks for reading Caterpickles this year. Related Links: More Christmas posts on Caterpickles Santa posts on Caterpickles
