We have the Graco Duorider and I wouldn't trade it for anything (except for a jogging stroller I can't afford but covet). http://www.amazon.com/Graco-DuoRider...7520072&sr=1-1 We started off with a tandem, and I hated it. It was like pushing a bus. After a few months of that, we got the Duorider and it's my fave (though I'd prefer a side by side jogging stroller with pivoting front wheel, but no $$$ for that right now). Things I love about the Duorider - Easy, super...

We have the KKs with sport tops - and when the top is closed, we get no leaks.
I've always just made a tiny little knot on one eye, then guided the needle back and forth so that the same length of thread makes both eyes. It takes more time, but it's the only way I've ever thought to do it. Then end with a knot on one eye, a small one so it's not noticeable, then add a few more back and forth sewings between the eyes, just to give the knot more stability, then poke the last stitch into an eye and pull the thread through some random spot in the bird's...

So wonderful. How did you make the little foodies? The salad and the hamburgers? And...

Quote: Originally Posted by NoliMum What is "Vitrelle"? In the description of the Corelle plates, that is the finish that keeps them durable. Vitrelle is the description of the three-layered glass Corelle is made with. It's just their "term" for that...their mugs however are stoneware. And the finish is glass as well - the dishes are heat tempered to be break resistant. That's it - so they are 100% glass.
You all are so sweet! I just had way too much fun. Quote: Originally Posted by Grayson's Mom One question... What did you use for the filling in your pillows and such? The cushions are just fabric folded over cotton batting - that's the stuff you put in quilts, right? I think that's what it's called (batting). And it's definitely NOT the icky batting (polyester?) but the real cotton stuff. I used three "sheets" of batting for the cushions,...
