New colorful serving bowls for Christmas
The Cosby show on DVD
Thank you Husband for buying me really big hot dogs. (I like mine with corn on it, just like the Paraguayans!) And a really big thank you for not caring if I eat the WHOLE thing REALLY fast. It doesn't seem to bother you that I can out eat most men. And for that I am eternally grateful.
Day Number Three of Sick Children.
My brain has turned into mashed potatoes.
We're off to rent more Dora the Explorer videos and hoping that tomorrow brings healthy children.
Husband is discipling two teenagers at our kitchen table.
Abster is taking nap in her room.
Fripits is helping me put finishing touches on our Christmas tree. (Yup. Before Thanksgiving.)
Fan is blowing the warm air around the house.
Life is good.
Santa came a little early this year for me, and he brought something I only dared to dream about. Leave it to my amazing husband to make (yet another) one of my dreams come true.
He got me a Nikon D80.
Let me retype that in case you didn't get it the first time.
HE GOT ME A NIKON D80!
I'm in picture taking heaven.
And those Nikon people? Turns out they know how to make a camera.
Ten Things You Didn't Know About Bobby Jindal - I love number 6!
The "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks - If you liked Apostraphe Abuse, you'll love this one!
Reading (Youtube) - Why I want my children to read. This is sooooo funny!

Today the Fripits came to me with her hand out towards me. She showed me the end of her finger where there was a weird blob thing.
"Mommy, what is that?"
"Well, I don't know honey. Where did you find it?"
She then proceeded to stick her finger up her left nostril and wiggle it around.
"In here." she said.
"That's a booger, dear."
"Oh, ok." and off she went.
Three years old...the age of new discoveries.
This idea came from Chasing Cheerios as well. I love her blog...such great ideas! I cut out pictures of food from some magazines while the girls were napping, and then they glued them onto paper plates. I let them pick and choose which food they wanted to "eat" and let them at it. Elena loved showing off what she "cooked" and Abbie loved trying to eat it. Literally.
Monday: Pot roast in the crock pot, rice, salad
Tuesday: Baked Mac & Cheese, and salad
Wednesday: Pork Gyros, fruit salad
Thursday: Crunchy Chicken Parmesan Tenders, carrot sticks, and mashed potatoes
Friday: Tuna Salad
Sunday: Easy Taco Bake, salad
Freezer meal of the week: Beans! I'm going to make a huge pot of beans and freeze them to use in burritos, soups, or just with rice. I love beans. It's the Venezuelan in me!
Apostraphe Abuse - I'm not sure why I find this so funny.
Happy Birthday, Dunk! - I thought this was adorable...and if one of my girls ever has an imaginary friend, we're throwing a party too!
The next "Survivor" series - Way too funny... I've never watched Survivor, but I would definitly make an exception for this one.
Welcome with Love - I will have to scour flea markets, yard sales, and used book stores to find this one. A childrens book about homebirth, which is beautifully illustrated. It's very pricey on Amazon since it is out of print, but oh, I want it. We love homebirthing and this would be a great way to prepare the girls for the next one. (No, I'm not preggo. Yet.)
Looking Good In Pictures - Great tips for portraits!
