Leaping Leap Frogs...

This is the best product I have ever purchased. Benjamin watches it over and over again.... Benjamin doesn't like to admit he knows his ABC's, but if you trick him, he gets it right, most of the time. I thought I would give it a try, so before going out and buying all of the videos, I decided to Netflix one of them and try it out because Benjamin does not like educational videos(anything that deals with A B or C). Anyway, he loves it because it is a cartoon and it is very entertaining. There are 5 DVDs included in this set. It teaches letters, numbers, phonics, silent letters, and anything else that deals with reading. It is educational and entertaining all at once. The songs are very catchy!!!

Anyway, I would suggest getting them for your 3-6 year old!!!!

It's hard to believe

I was going through some of our old video, when I came across this. It is hard to believe that my baby is 4 years old now. I know one thing kids grow up fast!!! In this video he is 8 months old. He is a very good jumper!!!

Benjamin's Birthday

I have been a bad blogger recently. I haven't been posting anything. We have been busy with birthday parties, weddings, and such. Benjamin had a great 4th birthday party with all of his classmates. It was a bowling birthday party. The kids had fun. Here are a couple of videos.

Congratulations Nick and Katie!!!

We were able to enjoy visiting family and seeing my brother-in-law get married to his beautiful bride, Katie. We had so much fun and Benjamin enjoyed seeing all of his cousins from aroud the United States. This was the last wedding of 8 children on my husbands side. I think it is pretty cool that all 8 children have a college degree and are married. Here are some pictures of the weekend.

Let's Pray...

Could everyone who reads by blog, please pray for my father-in-law (Walter) and my brother-in-law (John) and Heather ( a fellow blogger). My father-in-law just found out that he has malignant melanoma on his neck and will be having surgery soon. John had a tumor in his brain, he has already surgery to remove and is doing will, but he could use a prayer to stay in remission. Heather is having surgery to remove a tumor from her brain today and could use all the prayer she can get to make the surgery go well.

So if everyone could take a moment and pray, I would greatly appreciate it!! Prayer is very powerful and does truely work!!!

Benjamin at Karate - Video

I finally got to go and see Benjamin at karate class. Daddy was off so we both got to see him together. It was fun. I think karate is really good for children. It teaches them discipline. Benjamin seems to enjoy it. The instructor is very nice too.

Drink of Choice...Fuze

I normally don't endorse products, but Fuze is awesome. I love it!!! Fuze has a light taste and it is not to fruity. It also suppresses your appetite and sure beats drinking soda. You need to try it. I purchase it at Sams.

Peter Cottontail Express 2007

This weekend was a great weekend. The weather was nice and we got to take Benjamin on the Peter Cottontail Express. It was cute. We got to take a 35 minute train ride from one side of Huntsville to another. At the end of the train ride all the kids received a Easter goodie bag. We know Benjamin had fun because not even 5 minutes into the car ride home he was knocked out. Here are few pictures.

A Very Rocky Evening

What an eventful day. Griff and I both worked and came home and started our new rock border around our flower beds. Those rocks were HEAVY!!! We managed to ge the rock done in the front yard and tomorrow night we plan on getting the back flower beds done. Benjamin has been a big help by putting the rocks in the back of his John Deere motorized tractor (it's so cute to watch him). Anyway, the reason why we did it tonight and tomorrow night is because on Saturday we are going on a train ride called the Cottontail Express. The Easter Bunny is going to be on it handing out Easter candy. It's going to be fun. Sunday it is suppose to rain (60% chance). I will post pictures of our progress, so stay tuned.

Who is this???....Could it be Sanjaya?

Who does this remind you of??? I will give you a hint....American Idol. Doesn't this remind you of Sanjaya Malakar. I just don't understand how he is getting so far in the competition??? He isn't that good. Is he trying to make fun of American Idol?? I will have to agree with Simon on this one ...If he wins, Simon isn't coming back on the show and I refuse to watch it. I have liked everyone who has won American Idol...Even though, last year I would have liked Chris to win. Taylor Hicks was my second choice. I just hope anybody but him will win American Idol this year.

Benjamin learning Karate

Benjamin has started new activity....Karate. He is in the Little Dragon class. It is for 3-4 year olds. He loves it so far. We get the first month free, so Benjamin can try it out. I like it because the don't require you to sign a contract, like most of them do. There are 7 kids in his class. He does it once a week. We will see how he does. I haven't taken any pictures yet, but I will soon.

Weekend Yard Work

I promised pictures and here they are. We created this bed...I know, I know, where is the color?? It looks so bland. We are going to put flowers in a couple of weeks. The flower shops didn't have that many flowers because it's still a little early. It took us a half a day to create. Our next step is putting stones around the edge of all the beds in the yard.

Warm weather and Flower Beds

I haven't posted anything in awhile. There has been beautiful weather here in Huntsville,AL. It has been in the 70s, close to 80s. It's suppose to get colder by the weekend, but after that, the weather man says it's going to pretty much stay warm! WOOHOO!! We were busy this past weekend. We made a new flower bed in the back of the house. I love it!!! It sure does make a big difference. I will most likely post a picture tomorrow.....so stay tuned!! The weekend before we rented an aerator and aerated the yard. So now all we need is the Scotts man to come and fertilize and we are good to go.

Poem of the Week

I know this is not a poem, but I love this song. It brings back memories from when I was little in dance class. Click here if you want to hear this song.

You Are My Sunshine

The other night dear, as I lay sleeping,
I dreamed I held you in my arms,
but when I woke dear, I was mistaken,
and I hung my head and cried.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
you make me happy when skies are gray
you'll never know dear, how much I love you,
please don't take my sunshine away.

I'll always love you and make you happy
if you will only say the same
but if you leave me to love another
you'll regret it all some day

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
you make me happy, when skies are gray,
you'll never know dear, how much I love you,
please don't take my sunshine away.

You told me once dear you really
loved me that no one else could come
between but now you've left me and
love another you have shattered
all my dreams.

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
you make me happy, when skies are gray,
you'll never know dear, how much I love you,
please don't take my sunshine away.

Benjamin during Book Time

During the school day, the children get to look at books and share what they see. One of the mothers who visits on occasion took this picture. I thought it was cute. Sitting next to Benjamin is Michael (on the right), Bailey, and Willah.
