8th-Dec-2010 03:15 pm - Holidays tis the season to be jolly!

And jolly it is!!  I think this is going to be the best Christmas yet.  (they just keep getting better and better the older the kids get).  I’ll never forget the Christmas I think 4 years ago, Lili had just turned 5.  She begged and begged and begged for the Bratz DVD and I told her no.  And she was all upset because Santa doesn’t make DVDs, so there was no way Santa could bring her the movie.  I’ll never forget the look her on face when she opened the DVD.  She burst into tears and I think it was the first time she had ever gotten emotional over something.  Fausto asked her why she was crying and she said “because I’m so happy!!”

I’m hoping to top that Christmas this year.  She has been asking us for a Nintendo DS for about 2 years now.  It started with her birthday then Christmas then when it didn’t happen she started asking all over again the following year… and again this year.  Fausto and I have made it very clear that there is no way no how she is ever getting a DS.  Mostly it was him, I would have caved 2 years ago but he didn’t want the kids having yet another piece of technology when they already have the Wii and their own computers.  The other day when we were shopping we saw some DS games by the checkout counter and Lili was positively drooling.  She mentioned in a very sorrowful voice “whoever has a DS is sooooooo lucky.” 

I thought when I mentioned to Fausto this year that I thought this would be a good present for her, I would get push back but instead he said he’d been giving it a lot of thought and he too thought she was ready.  Next question… what to get Danny.  No question, Danny gets one too!!  I could not believe my ears talking to Fausto. 

I found a super deal online, DS lite with starter kit +2 games.  I bought one in Pink and one in Blue, how cliché of me!  They arrived at my work today and now I am positively drooling over them!!  They are pretty awesome little toys.

 One of the lady's at my work has 3 kittens she's trying to give away.  With Lili so allergic I couldn't take one but apparently they are 6 weeks and need to go to the vet and there are 2 gray ones and 1 light yellow one.  If you're interested let me know and I'll email you her information.

I gasped 3 times in this episode.  When Daniel (Faraday) Whitmoore knocked on the window and then when he explained how he already set off a nuclear explosion and again when Desmond woke up.  What a crazy episode!!!

 I've always been a Nintendo fan, we got a Nintendo when I was 11, moved up to a Super Nintendo and then I left my parent's house never to play Nintendo again.  Until it was decided we had to get a Wii.  Oh yes!  I've always sucked at playing and my favorite thing to do on Saturday Mornings was watch my brothers play, because they were so good they would just zip through each level, barely if ever dying.  So we get our Wii and I have nobody to play it for me so I can watch.  So I have to play it but I die... a lot.  In fact, I even had to have psunshine come over and beat a level for me because I was so frustrated about it.  Not even a world!  Just a level!  So last weekend we went to my parent's house for my brother's birthday, he and his wife came down from New York with their 10 month old son.  And I brought the Wii and Mario.  And I got to do what I do best... watch my brother AND his WIFE beat the game together!  :)  Now I have a beaten game and I can go to any level and play and its already beat!  It was such the best weekend!  And I can't believe my sister in law is so amazing at playing it too!  My brother picked a good wife!  ;)  They even took turns watching the baby while I watched them beat the game.  It was great!

Oh and now I have my very own little Nintendo player who's getting quite good and I think pretty soon I'll get to watch Danny beating Mario!  I should mention that he played with them the whole time and he had a ball!  As soon as they arrived he was already asking his uncle if he could play Mario with him.  Oh and Bowser??!!  Holy Crap!  He's like the entire size of the TV Screen and if you have a 60 inch flat screen like my parents... that's pretty huge!

Anyone who has Gmail... what do you think of Buzz?  Do you think it will take over Twitter like they've predicted?  Put a dent in facebook?  I'm still up in the air about it.  My brother who tweets constantly attached it to twitter so now anything he tweets shows up in buzz but I've noticed over the past couple days his tweeting is becoming less and less and his buzzing is becoming more and more.  Have you looked it?  Do you like it?  I'm curious about what my friends think.

Just wanted to say I'll be missing all the girls weekend while they're in Berkley Springs.  I wish I could have joined you all but as you know its my son's birthday and I just couldn't justify being away for it.  So take lots of pictures (especially of that castle!) and have so much fun!!  :)  Next year if it's not the weekend of the 11th I'm totally there!!  :)

From www.Wikipedia.com:

Marilyn Monroe(born Norma Jeane Mortenson, June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962; baptized Norma Jeane Baker) was an American actress, singer, and model.

After spending much of her childhood in foster homes, Monroe began a career as a model, which led to a film contract in 1946. Her early roles were minor, but her performances in The Asphalt Jungle and All About Eve (both 1950) were well received; as her career progressed, she became known as a sex symbol. She was praised for her comedic ability in such films as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How to Marry a Millionaire and The Seven Year Itch, and became one of Hollywood's most popular performers.
