*UPDATED* Way to go New York Giants* You Rock*
First thing first, I changed my blog name! I really like the new look, and the title really identifies my daily life! I don't think a day goes by that I don't ask that very question. I have a silver tag hanging from my rear view mirror that say "mom's taxi"... it's very fitting. Thank you to those of you who gave me your opinion on the matter!
As I'm sure is true with most families, every day here is different. We have the good ones and the bad ones, but every day is a blessing whether we're learning from it or reaping the rewards of a lesson finally learned. I'm not even sure if that sentence makes sense!
Oh, I know what I mean!
I do have a question for my internet friends. The kids have been earning an allowance now for about 3 weeks and the kids have decided that they want to give Jesus 50 cents of their $2.00. I was so proud of them to make such a great decision. Well, this week they wanted to give Jesus a dollar of their allowance. We didn't know what to say because we have also been teaching them about saving so much money each week, too.
So, what would you tell your kids? We told them that it was very good of them to want to do that, but while they are learning about spending, saving and tithing they should just stick with the 50 cents. I know, it's a hard question!
We are watching the Superbowl tonight. Eric made all of the kids an invitation with money in it and then he took them shopping to get the snacks for the game. They were each responsible for bringing a certain item. They loved this so much. My hubby is so creative!
By the way, I didn't have to bring anything because I am his date! :)
See that wallpaper in the background? That will be gone soon, hopefully very soon. I hope to get the kitchen done before the trip.
Oh yeah, I went shopping today for some new things for the trip. I got this top at Cato, along with a couple others. I also got THE PRETTIEST black dress with bead work on the front for one of the formal nights and I tried on another dress for the 2nd dressy night on the cruise. They didn't have my size, so I am going to a different town tomorrow to hopefully find one at the Penny's there. Our town only has Penny's, Sear's and Cato, so I have limited choices. Dern.
I might just have to take pictures tomorrow and post them so you can see what I got. I would do it tonight, but they are ALLTHEWAYUPSTAIRS and that is just too far to travel right now!
Just look at what it's doing outside! Enough of the snow already...please.
Much love to you all,
