My friend's daughter attends EMECEC and they are having a fundraiser. I was trying to help her out with spreading the word - plus the deal to Fitness Works seems like an awesome deal. I am very tempted myself. A three month membership for $20 is a steal!!

If you would like more information, leave me a comment and I will get you in contact with her. Orders are due October 2nd.

Opinions-Christmas Fun

Anyone have recommendations for a fun "Polar Express" like train adventure for Christmas time? I have looked up the ones from Greer, Grand Canyon (Williams), and Globe. We are trying t0 figure out if we can squeeze it into the budget and which one Abigail (and maybe some cousins) would like best. Anyone been to one before?


Summer Project

I think it was April that my very kind brother and husband drove quite the distance to look at a piano I could get a good deal on. I wasn't too thrilled about it's color - so I have recently finished staining it to a medium dark brown. It took me a long time between other things going on and the incredible heat. It's didn't stain as evenly as I hoped and it is taking more space than I imagined, but I am happy to add it to my super nice electronic one.... Anyone know of a good piano tuner that won't cost me an arm and a leg - as I really barely have a finger to pay. My father-in-law and I will most likely be able to keep it tuned in the future, but since it hasn't been tuned since the 70s - I figure a professional should do it this time around.... Anyone have someone they recommend?

What a Big Girl

This little girl is growing up so fast that I can hardly keep up (but yet I hear it only gets faster).

She has pretty much mastered potty training - with the help of grandma and parent bribes...and lots of excitement and praise in her success (thanks to those who let us make a big deal about it when Abigail called to tell you)

She absolutely loves her Mickey tricycle and Tangled doll - and has learned how much she hates to give them back.
