To Wii or not to Wii, that is the question?

So I have been considering getting a Wii for Gerriss for his Bday for a while now. I really dislike video games because they are very addicting and take away from precious family time that you could be doing more strengthening things. Although, my other argument is that it would be a great and fun thing to do on relaxing nights when we don't have any other plans. It also would be great for our Sunday School parties as well. I am torn and need some input. I would like some pros and cons of Wii owners and Wii non-owners. I want to make a very informed purchase when or if I do get him one. Please HELP!

Happy Birthday Jeano!

Here is the birthday boy and his bebe! Our two good friends, and the world's best neighbors!

We went to Bonwood last night and had a blast! Gerriss brought his A-game as usual and I totally blew it, as usual. It's all fun! Right?

The two cheeseballs! AKA Precious and Mr. Big

We had so much fun! Thanks for letting us share in your day! Hope you have a great Birthday!

New Year's Resolutions

I have never been one to make New Year's resolutions, although I have never heard of any really good ones. Does any one have any really good resolutions this year?

Neil Diamond and Birthday Wishes

Today is my sister's birthday. So my mom got us girls tickets to go see Neil Diamond in concert. I think I am too young to know any of the songs he sang, but he sure is a good entertainer. Although I did know the "We're coming to America" song, that one was pretty cool! He also sang this "Sweet Caroline" song that was really cute. I wonder if anyone who reads my blog even know these songs. My mom LOVES Neil Diamond, so I am sure she LOVED the concert. It was a lot of fun, and was a great way to celebrate my sister's birthday. Thanks Mama for a fun girls night! Happy Birthday Dana.

Time to get movin!

Ok, I am all better now! I got the ok from the doctor this morning that I can go back to my normal routine as long as I take it easy. Well, that was this morning so this afternoon I decided to catch up on some of the Christmas shopping I missed out on for the past two weeks. I spent three hours out in all the madness....I almost died! People are CRAZY this time of year. I almost got run over, by cars and carts; no one is happy and jolly, everyone is pissed off and stressed to the max. I can't believe how insane it is out there. I am gonna start celebrating Christmas in a different month so that I can get the good stuff, not get killed and not be bitter by the time Christmas arrives that I am glad it is over with. I know, I know, this is not what Christmas is about, but it is a small part and it becomes a major part when doing little things this time of year turn into a fiasco because lines are so long, traffic is so hectic, and people are so mean.

Now that I have ranted and raved for a bit I actually feel a little better. Thanks for listening to me vent!

Have a Merry Christmas!

Gerriss and I went to the doctor today and found out that the blood clot is improving (shrinking) but it is still hanging around. It has moved lower in my leg, which is why I am not in as much pain and why I am able to move a bit more, but he has ordered me to stay on bed rest for another week. We are trying out two new things this week for treatment so hopefully they help get this little thing under control. Other than that I am still just going to be sitting here at home, reading, watching movies, doing crafts, and visiting with friends and family. Thanks to all who have helped us out so far, either with meals, friendship, or prayers, it means so much to us and we are so happy to know that everyone cares so much. We love you all and we will keep you posted on how things are going.

Bed rest...

I have been put on bed rest until further notice for a minor blood clot in my leg. I am so bored though! I have tons of movies to watch, books to read, and games to play, but that is not enough. I need human interaction. My mom came over today which helped A TON. She brought me all this healthy food that will help open up my arteries, so I guess I don't get to eat comfort food. Its ok, the faster I can kick this thing the better. Plus its not like I need to make it worse right. So if anyone has any ideas of things to do while sitting here doing nothing I am all ears! Oh and about the clot thing, no need to worry, its small and will be gone in no time at all. Just a minor mishap with my medicine. I learned my lesson to take EVERYTHING that the doctor wants me to though, even if it is yucky. Oops!
