NHL Winter Classic 2008!

I am super pumped about this. On New years day, the NHL is holding the first US outdoor, NHL regular season game in history. The game is between the Penguins and the Sabers, and should be a great game. The game will be held in front of 70,000 fans in the buffalo Bills Stadium (tickets…



Merry Christmas!

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. We celebrated on Christmas Eve because my dad had to work Christmas day. We had a lovely feast of tacos and tostadas, put on our pajamas and opened gifts. We played the new games Michelle and I got after all the gifts were opened, and we ate Matt’s…

Christmas Goodies!

We have spent the last two Sundays baking goodies for Christmas. We had a lot of fun and have lots of goodies! I thought I would share some pics. Last weekend we made goodies to give away.

Musical Christmas Card

Today I got one of those cute musical Christmas cards from some dogs I take care off. I thought I would share Tank’s opinion of it:



BBB Complaint?

Matt received an email this morning that his BBB case had been closed. Ummm what? We never got one that said we had an open complaint. The complaint stated that the person never got a reply to an email. I was, ummm, quite peeved at this point. Who complains over not getting a response to…



So not cool!

On Saturday morning we woke up to shards of glass and torn down lights. No we didn’t not have one heck of a storm, and nope we don’t have a wildlife problem. Someone tore down our lights! They are stapled up so it completely tore the cords. We were lucky and only two strands were…



Polar Bear Pic (for those of you waiting)

Also, dad helped us fixed the nativity, we had it set-up all wrong. It looks much better now.



Need a holiday gift idea?

Greendimes is perfect for someone who is sick of all that junk mail. Plus you don’t have to hope it arrives in time to wrap, you just select the date you want it sent to their email. They will also plant 10 trees for the recipient.



Mmmm Coffee

I don’t know about you, but I cannot start my day without my cup of coffee. According to the makers of Black Gold retail sales of coffee are 80 billion dollars per year, so I know I am not the only one with this morning addiction. (A short excerpt, 8:15 minutes, of the documentary is…



Christmas Lights!

We put up our Christmas lights yesterday afternoon when we had a break in the windy, rainy weather. We wanted to do it last weekend, but it rained all day Saturday and we had other stuff to do on Sunday. Yesterday only required one emergency trip to the store to get one more strand of…

Grocery Store Faux Pas

Today I committed the ultimate grocery store faux pas, something I hadn’t done in a very long time and work very hard at not doing. I went to the grocery store HUNGRY! It was bad. I bought things I never buy chips, pretzels (I wanted to go back and find chocolate after this so I…
