Trying out Microsoft Live Writer

This is a test post to see if Microsoft Live writer actually works.

So far I am noticing the adding pictures is alot quicker and easier.

Not sure about the background color, I had to change the font color because I couldn’t see it. I will be interested to see what happens when I actually upload it.


Tub of Goooo.....

I got this idea from The Mailbox. I put shaving cream and shredded cotton balls in a tub. And mixed it up. Then I added some plastic orange and black spiders. I buried the spiders and let Monkey search for them. I thought he would be willing to touch it so I gave him some tongs. I thought he could sort the bugs by color. But, we just had so much fun with the goop that we didn't really sort.

After a while, he really got into it. He got some on his hand and wiped it on the table and then started having a ball.

I went and grabbed some cars so he could drive cars throug the "snow" and leave tracks.

He was great about helping me clean up too. I let him man the sprayer at the sink and he rinsed all the bugs and cars.

We will definatly do this again!

Back to Blogging

Hello again,

I had decided about a week ago to give up blogging. I even went so far as to erase the blog. I had various reasons; it is very time consuming, not many readers, and various others that I don't care to mention.

But, then I got to thinking that being a blogger was a great way of keeping memories for my children. It is like a time capsule, and whether or not anyone reads it doesn't matter. It is something that my children and I will cherish.

So I am back to blogging!

Thanks to those of you who do read my little blog, and to all of you whose blogs I read! Keep it up ladies!

Our Halloween Costumes!

Here are our Halloween Costumes.

Monkey is a pirate, of course on Halloween he will be wearing shoes!

Alligator is a monster, and the cutest one I have ever seen!
