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.

Super Bowl 2007

The Super Bowl is always fun to watch, not necessarily for the game, but also the commericals. This year I would say the commericals were not as good as years past, but a few were good.

Here is a good link to see a good majority of them.

I also enjoyed the Half Time Show. Prince did a very good job. I really wanted Chicago to win...oh well.

It Snowed!!!

It snowed!! Can you believe it!!! It hardly ever snows in Huntsville, Alabama. I think it has snowed(actually sticking to the ground) maybe twice since I have lived here (10 years) Griff stayed up last night until 1a.m. and took pictures of it physically snowing. Benjamin enjoyed waking up to snow. Some schools were opening late or if you lived far out, you were off of school. Hope you enjoy the pictures...There are new pictures on the photo page.
