Awesome Husband!

I thought I would share some of my hubby's cool talent. He came home today and told me he got to play with his programs at work today and made this denim. So he started with a blank white page, without scanning in a picture, he created this from scratch. I thought that was so cool! My husband can do some pretty cool things with graphics!

People Really Like Me!

It was so great to hear from all of you that told me that I lacked blogging skills, or that you haven't heard from me in awhile. I kind of took a break off for the holidays, but it was nice to know that people had actually been paying attention to what I was sharing.

Superstar won something earlier this week. I won something tonight. We had a chili cook off for Enrichment (our women's meeting at church) and I won the best over all chili. Yeah!!!

Dad has started back to school for his Master's Degree. He is busy every Tuesday and Wednesday now and also whatever extra work he will have.

We get to head off to DC for next Monday. Very excited about that!

Saturday Morning Cartoons

I know I grew up loving Saturday Morning Cartoons. Waking up as early as I could, so I wouldn't miss the cartoons. Well, that was until I moved over seas, then I would get VHS tapes of recorded Saturday Morning Cartoons.

Any one with kids today, especially if you don't have cable or satellite, your kids probably enjoy the Saturday morning cartoons. I am noticing, it's not quite as a big deal as it was when I was a kid, probably because of all the cartoon and kid shows you can get through cable and such.

A few weeks ago the kids were watching Kids WB on Saturday morning. You know how they have the contests, to win money and such. Well, Superstar wanted to compete in the contest, we went online together and signed up for the contest. I told her, you know kids all over are signing up for this contest, you know you don't have much of a chance of winning.

Well, today in the mail, we received a package from Kids WB. She actually won 2nd place. It's two DVDs full of WB cartoons. She is very excited! So I guess this means she'll want to try more contests.

Off subject, no surgery tomorrow. My doctor's office signed me up for an out of network hospital on accident. I am rescheduling for a in-network hospital some time in the future.

Long Awaited Holiday Pics

I know I never got any holiday pics up. We had our Thanksgiving with a couple other families at the church building and lots of good food. Also, pictures of the kids eating their gingerbread houses they made at Cullen's office party. There are many more pictures coming with time!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Hello everyone!

I know it's been forever since I have updated. The holidays did their normal craziness on me! Way to much to do in way too little time. Hopefully soon I will be able to update with pictures. I haven't been sleeping well, because I am still trying to squeeze in too much stuff every day!

We got to go and visit family for Christmas. We got back the beginning of the year. As we were trying to get back into our routines, I came down with a very nasty case of strep. It took me out for four days. I had a ton of stuff scheduled for the week that followed (which is this week and weekend), so I have been twice as busy. My brother called a couple days ago and said he's coming up this weekend too! It'll be good to see the nephews again, and it will stay very busy.

I am ready for some relaxation. I have surgery on Wednesday (removing a tumor on my thumb), I know I will at least get to rest on that day! Pretty sad when you are looking forward to having surgery, so you can have a day of rest.

Kids are doing okay. Home school has been a bit more challenging this year (yes I am talking the entirety of 2008). I have had some challenging days too, with everything going on. I need to find a good way to relax and hopefully get a better daily schedule going on.

By the way it's my Mother-in-Laws 60th Birthday today!

Happy Birthday Mimi!
