Anyone ever hear of this?? I am on my way to check it out..


Some pics to share…




Nana and Ethan (great great grandma)



Daddy and Ethan



Hope everyone had a wonderful Weekend!

Today’s conversation:

Anna:  Mommy, when are we doing our Easter eggs?

Me:  Later, honey

A: You mean like on Easter?

M: No, we will do it today, just not right now

A: but we always do it on Easter, remember?

M: No Anna.. how do we hide the eggs on Easter if they are not colored yet?

A: I knew it!  I knew all along you hide the eggs!!


I have never told her about an Easter bunny.. however when she asked who hid the eggs.. I always say I have no clue.. lol.  guess I can’t do that anymore.


Here is our craft from craft day – Painted wood eggs


We watched Ethan last night.. However, we just soaked in all of his attention that I never got pictures or videos taken.. oh well.  I loved his little army crawl across the floor.  He absolutely loved grandpa last night too.. even let him hold him.. shocking!  Ethan was just all talkative and full of smiles for him.. Definately made angel’s day.  He even gave angel a quick open mouthed kiss just before attacking his nose!  LOL.

Tomorrow we get to spend the day with Justine and Ethan as well as David (yeah.. hardly ever see him these days)  After ballet we are taking a drive to see my gram.. Ethan’s great great Nana.  She is very excited for us to come.  She has only met Ethan once.. he has changed alot since then.

In Case I don’t get back here in time.. Have a Wonderful Easter!

I am totally not trying to neglect xanga.. lol. 

been busy.. schooling, cleaning, you know the drill.  I am guessing I lost alot of my readers due to not posting.. I am sorry.. 😦  oh well.  Life goes on..

I just got done cleaning for craft day.  Miss Steph is bring craft and lunch.. Kielbasa and periogies.. yummm!  My mouth is drooling.. I have even skipped breakfast.. I know I know.. not good.  It truly was not intentional.  It always happens when I have to clean for company. 

I have also been cleaning Anna’s room.. man it gets bad in there.  I know it is time to weed out some toys.. especially when her birthday is coming fast.. she is wanting the Bugville Butterfly.  She keeps seeing the informercial and writing the phone number down for me.  Silly girl.  I think it is interesting and we can do an entire lesson on butterflies for it. 

Well, my company should be arriving.. but I wanted to leave you with two videos I have come across recently.. anyone with beagles would totally understand this guy.. love it!

I am having a problem with blogarithm..  I have been using it for years to keep me updated on blogs I read.. however, lately it just isn’t working..

Anyone have a good place you go to that will keep track of all your blogs? 

I have not posted in a very long time.. wow.  I have been very tired.  I get up at about 4:30 am.. that is when david gets up for work and at 5 Angel takes him.  Usually I stay up and start my day.. but I will admit that lately.. I have crawled back into bed the minute they leave.. just so tired.

Oh.. and I wanted to welcome a new subscriber..  DILLONDALESMUMMY

Ethan is getting sooo big.. He will soon be 10 months old and he is just sooo sweet, lovable, huggable, and such a good baby.  I had the privilege of watching him for a few hours last night and took some videos.  Actually I am going to share 5 cause they are taken one after the other.. you just have to watch.  Annaleah is feeding him mac and cheese.

Asian Drama:

Another thing we have been doing lately is watching some asian dramas.  The first one we watched was soo good.  Angel even cried!  and for those who know him, that is a very rare thing indeed.  In one episode I was sobbing so hard..  It was a very good movie and a great ending.

20 years ago, the pugilist world has appeared a swordsman who is very highly skilled in martial arts and only interested to compete his skills with other swordsman. Four leaders of reputable sect had died under his sword. Both Xiao Yuer and Hua Wu Que who were by now invincible in martial arts decided to compete with him in order to restore peace. But both of them were later missing and the swordsman no longer appear. It was rumoured that both Xiao Yuer and Hua Wu Que had sacrificed their lives for the pugilist world, and had become a legend. At the same time, both their sons are still in the pugilist world, but it’s not known where they are.

20 years later….

Both sons have grown up, but what kind of person do they grow up to be? The brothers of the previous generation were enemies at first but ended up as brothers. This generation, will the 2 brothers follow their father’s footsteps becoming enemies or become good friends? Slowly, the truth will unveils. is an excellent source for getting these movies, especially with subtitles! … Let me know if you decide to check it out..

View all Featured Questions    Are you happy with the name your parents gave you? Why or why not?

My name is Linda Marie.. How did I get my name?  Dad wanted me to have my mom’s name.. Linda Louise (turned out her name is really Linda Lou).. mom thankfully.. said no and put her foot down when it came to the middle name.  However, I grew up as Little Linda.  I always wrote Linda M.  That was how we knew us apart.  I still remember dad calling “Linda” and us replying “which one!”  lol

You know.. as a kid I absolutely hated my name.. it was sooo plain.  I wanted to be a Cassandra.. or even a Beth.. all the Beth’s I knew were popular and perfect.. lol.  I also loved names like Rebecca and Abigail.  Oh there were so many possibilities.. Mom originally wanted Koreen Kay.. why couldn’t she have won on that name.. (I am very thankful now that she didn’t win.. LOL. )

As I got into my early teens I decided if I couldn’t change the name I would change the spelling.. so Linda became Lynda.. I mean.. seriously.. Lynda Carter was absolutely beautiful.. and we shared the same birthday.. so it was perfect to me..

gradually I became Linda again and you know.. it is not that bad.

Well, looks like I need to go.. Please know that I have been reading all the blogs.. I am so bad at commenting so please forgive me.

Hubby is on his way home.. We are having pancakes for dinner.. nice and easy!

Have a great night!

Oh.. let me leave you with this.. I took this the other night while watching the Legendary Siblings.. Anna loves watching however, she can’t read the subtitles.. so she tends to crash ..
