Unfortunately, I'm not talking about my mother nor my mother-in-law who
have been staying with us these last few weeks.
The other day we came home from running errands and my mom walked into
the kitchen and was surprised by the a half eaten brownie sitting on the
window ledge next to candles that were knocked over. See photo of

My mom suggested that Luke may have set it down in a hurry when he was
leaving, but later when we asked him he said he hadn't even had a
brownie yet. So I was kind of freaking out thinking that someone was in

otherwise the smoke alarm goes off! BUT we're moving on Saturday! So we
won't have to worry about that problem any more!
P.S. We had a baby two weeks ago. His name is Evan Michael.
