Harry Potter's New International Trailer

Your not going to believe this

About dinner time on Saturday we stopped by our cousins to pick up the boys who were playing Wii (we).

Have you played Wii? Wow this is a cool game, I'm temped to have JP get a paper route to pay for one. Each player gets to set up a Mii (me), that looks very similar to themselves. So like there is this whole private game community of your friends and family. We stayed nearly 2 hours setting up our Mii's and playing games like baseball. The other Mii's in the system are on your team, which is really cool. More on Wii later.

So after we spend all evening playing games we finally head out to dinner at our local favorite, Rio Grande around 8:30. When we pulled into the restaurant and noticed a Limo. That was funny. Who would bring a limo there? I didn't realize how nice of a place it was.

So when our waiter drops off our bill, he says, "Do you want to go in the Limo?" After two margarita's and children who aren't fighting I instantly say "Yes!".

So here we were, all 4 of us, along with Oscar, Jose and Angleo riding in one sweet ride.
LJ could stand up and dance to the salsa music playing. Our ride, which seemed to last forever was something else. After watching so much 24 I did have to question weather we were getting kidnapped and why they may want us. Fortunately, we have no value outside of our weekly tip to them.
I still wonder if they meant to ask us along, but they got us anyway. It was a much cooler limo than I had at my wedding and now the kids will count down the years until Prom so they can ride in one again.

Book Review - East of Eden

Did you know that when Adam and Eve were banished from Eden, God sent them to "East of Eden" .

In essence then, that is were we live, East of Eden. Such a simple thing, yet so profound.

This book is a mondernish day retelling of the book of Gennisis. I found it to be amazing.

Let me put my dunce cap on for a bit....Who knew the Bible was a book with personal history and human struggles?

I could go on, but I won't.

Busted for laughing out loud

Have you ever found yourself laughing at something in front of you kids that you can't share?
Delayed earlier in the day, I had to come back to this parody I found today. Since the kids kept hovering around I grabbed a pair of headphones and I kept laughing out loud, I was so busted. I had to say " This is for Mommy, it's a Mommy joke and I am just not going to explain it now." That will come back to me one day when they are in high school I just know it.

See what you think. Alanis Morrisette covering Fergie in video form.

Here's the original...

Happy Easter! My sister-in-law just sent me their family Easter pictures. Aren't they cute.

And here's ours. It's a great picture of Ryan, but it looks like he has a festive hat on. (Don't tell him that, it might hurt his feelings)
Here are the kids with their new Easter chairs.
And finally, my pie that had nearly $20 in berries. Once I put the topping on, it was all down hill from there.

What do boys do at a birthday party?

Well, if I had a video editor I'd show you how a whoopie cushion doesn't stop being funny, but here's a short to show you the difference between boys and girls.

Addition Phase III- Nearly Complete

Addition Phase III

Well I'm in my office for the first time. When they left last night they said I could have it. It's complete from the builders perspective except the heat/air mainly.

If you'd like to see the picture of the window into the kitchen, click the picture above, it's a link to a web gallery. I'll update it with more pictures later, but now it's 18 degrees out side and I can't manage to run out and take a different perspective.

You can have Harry Potter and eat your cake too.

If you don't "get" Harry Potter, I am trully sorry for you. (he he) I wish I didn't ach for the joy you are missing. But don't worry I won't loose sleep.

More news is released everyday and as we get closer (it is April now) the fans get restless. Last week, the cover art was released and this week a cake was made of it. I found this at The Leaky Cauldron.

National Penut Butter and Jelly Day

What's in your PB&J? Jelly or Jam?

Who would have know they have dedicated April 2nd to one of my families favorite lunches. Isn't America Great! Below is a clip inspired by a rap song called "Penut Butter and Jelly Time" I think it's in the top 5 searches from Yahoo.

From me to you on this joyous day.
