The Lexicon - Final Installment

We just couldn't NOT include the newest arrivals. And, by *newest* we mean the ones that got all captured by our Spam Filter, who's really a bastard about that kind of stuff.

As always, here are Parts One, Two, Three, Four and Five. And, we're tasking ourselves with compiling them all and putting them together into the KDR (KidLand Desk Reference) to go with the MDR. We plan to have it done by the end of the week, which means it might get done by Christmas. Unless Kate puts it on her Tuesday List...then it'll totally happen.

Unless Lydia dares her to fix her drippy kitchen sink. Which DID happen. Lydia is writing all about it. It basically boils down to these important points: Kate is super handy with tools, Kate is awesome. Kate didn't get a weird haircut. You'll have to wait and find out if the sink is still drippy. Which is also totally possible.
