Some new videos

Hi all, I’m sorry I haven’t been posting as often as I used to. I’ve been quite busy with a lot of things. We’ve officially listed our house for sale through a realtor ( had our first open house yesterday) so we’ve been trying to keep the house extra clean, which is impossible with a 1 year old and a 3 year old running around.

I’ve also had some computer issues, and might have lost some very important photos and videos of the kiddies from early 2008 – mid 2009.  My hard drive for my home server is currently at the doctor to see if he can find any of the lost photos or videos.

Also, my typical video editing software, Windows Live Movie Maker, has been acting funky and I can’t get it to create videos where we don’t sound like chipmunks narrating a Japanese film (our mouths don’t movie in sync with the audio).

So, to get you some new content, I’ve relied on my Flip video publishing software, which unfortunately doesn’t let me embed the video in my blog post, but instead provides me with a link to where you can view the videos.

Enjoy!

When your TV breaks…

Buy a new one.

Can you see it in there?

It was not fun to install.

Josh did this, while I watched.  And the kids did this…

Coloring on boxes is sooooo much fun!

Sticky things on the ceiling

Do you have fond memories of getting back from the grocery store with your parents in eager anticipation of opening that box of cereal that had those creepy crawly sticky things inside them? 

I do. In fact, I remember being so excited when we successfully stuck them to the wall and the ceiling.

Raleigh is also excited when we allow him to throw things at the wall and ceiling. He gets even more excited when they actually stick!

Here he is patiently waiting for the sticky things to fall from the ceiling.

And here is Leah holding my phone while swaying back and forth to the “TV” that my parents got her for her birthday.  Do you remember these “TVs”?  You wind up one of the dials and the picture rolls across the screen while music plays and no batteries are needed.

$50…and what it can get you

Thanks to an Old Navy store sale that had 50% all clearance items, and a $10 off a purchase of $50 coupon. I got all of this…

(Non of the little boy stuff appealed to me…Sorry, Raleigh, maybe next time)

Missing my little ones…

My MIL had surgery this morning on her Neck, so Josh and the kids are at his parents’ house this week.  Which means that I miss these two adorable kiddos oh so much.

Deb’s surgery went really well, so well that I think she gets to come home a day early from the hospital.
