The temptation of vegetables

Last year Misty put together a cornucopia full of little pumpkins, gourds, and silk flowers. Unfortunately, it was constantly under siege by the evil kitty, and it didn't last very long.

This year, with no evil kitty to eat the display, Misty is more hopeful that her efforts will last through Thanksgiving.

Enter Emily.

Emily wants those gourds really badly. So much so, in fact, that she began to crawl this evening in order to get to them.

It's a slow, labored crawl — like someone trying to crawl with two broken legs, Misty said — but she's crawling. She made it over to the treasure trove of dry vegetables and promptly inserted a gourd into her mouth.

That cornucopia is doomed.
