Do you guys have a DVR? We've had one for a while and I love it!
In fact we don't watch regular TV anymore. lol
Our favorite shows to DVR and watch are Chase, Bones, House, CSI NY, Justified, Southland (that's for the hubby), and of course Disney cartoons for the kiddos.... lol

How about you? What do DVR?

Our grocery store was having a great sale on goldfish this week and this is something that we have to keep stocked up in the house. The chocolate ones is little man's fave and I snuck the vanilla in there for me. lol I love these things! I can eat a whole bag in one sitting!

Prepping for VDay

I love holidays! They are always fun for me. And now that little man is in school part time, I enjoy making little treats for his friends. I made Halloween treat bags, Christmas bags and gave his teachers (he has 2) a little Christmas gift. In a class with 14 kids, I am pretty much the only mom that does this. :/ I know everyone is busy and on a budget. BUT it doesn't take much to please these little ones. BUT I had this idea for Valentine's Day. I wanted little man to give each girl in his class a flower. Doesn't have to be a rose, just a flower.... How cute would that be? There's only 5 girls in his class. I just thought it would be adorable. Hubby didn't like that idea. :/ What do you guys think?

Digital Frames

My broher in law bought me a digital frame for Christmas. He knows how much I LOVE pictures and I was so impressed that he thought of getting me this super cool frame. I LOVE it! Have you seen them? Do you have one? It's now going to be an addiction of mine. lol I finally had the time to set it up the other day and I really enjoy sitting there watching the slide show of pictures. Even my hubby got into it. I leave it off when it's just us at home to conserve it, someone told me they easily burn out. But the other day, his parents were coming over and he reminded me to turn my frame on. lol Then he sat there and told me which pictures are his favorites. I thought that was cute. I told him I want a couple more digital frames, maybe even in different sizes. :)

9 years

Don't laugh... This is hubby and I 9 years ago.... Back when we were skinny and had hair (hubby is balding. lol)
I just cannot believe how time really does fly by! Hubby and I met at church and became friends. Soon after we decided to start dating. In January 13, 2002 we became a couple! He was my first and only boyfriend. Can you believe it? I was 19 when we met. Just a young kid! We have been blessed with so much! Hubby is my soulmate - we complete each other. :) I know, kind of cheesy, but it's true. We really are the perfect match!!! Pretty soon we will be celebrating our wedding anniversary. WOW!

Learning and Playing

For Christmas my in-laws bought little man some educational toys. I told them that's what he needed because this kid has plenty of toys. lol So they bought him a couple of cool things. But his favorite is the LeapFrog computer. It has a mouse and keyboard. Then you connect it to the TV and it teaches kids letters, numbers and how to use a mouse. It's great! He learned how to use the mouse in less than an hour. I was shocked! Kids are so smart!!!

My lil' Photographer

For Christmas my parents bought little man one of those Fisher Price digital cameras. He LOVES it. He loves taking pictures and we knew this would be a big hit! He is really good at it. I was a bit surprised. He takes very artistic pictures. It's cute to watch him work - he concentrates so hard and you can see his little brain working. I wish I could read his mind and see what he sees... I wish the camera had a flash but other than that, I was really impressed with his art work! :) What do you think?
