What Happens When You Get Cable

Michael and I have been married for seven years. For seven years, we have only gotten four channels on our very old television. Well, Santa Claus (my mom and dad) got us a new television for Christmas. We then decided, what the hay, let's get cable and really enjoy it. Well, I think that Allie has found more enjoyment from it than any of us!! Before cable, she only knew about Elmo and the Sesame Street gang, Curious George, and Clifford the Big Red Dog. Now, she loves Mickey Mouse Club House, Dora, Diego, My Friends Tigger and Pooh...I could go on and on but then you would realize how much I actually let my child watch T.V. and well I just can't let you in on that little secret. Hey, it's either T.V. or her standing at the sink with the water running begging me for more toothpaste. I have to do something to entertain her people! So anywho, Here she is watching Mickey Mouse Club House while eating. I am such a great mother aren't I? HE HE
Now, the sad thing about it is I think I enjoy all of Allie's shows as much as she does. Infact, I have Goofy's dance from the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse down pat!

Welcome to our New Home

Our new blog home that is. It has been forever since I have blogged, so I thought what the heck, let's get off to a clean start with a new blog! So anywho..has anyone ever told you that toddlers are totally unpredictable; change every day; and are extremely hard to raise! Wow! I am loving every minute with Allie these days because she is just so interested in every little thing. She is talking more and more and she has developed the cutest little attitude that if it was any other child I would think, "man she needs a good spankin'" but because it is Allie it is just too stinkin' cute. She has developed this little scowering look that just cracks me up every time she gives it to me! Oh, and of course she is little miss independent. She thinks she can do everything absolutely by herself. But at naptime she wants Mommy to lay be her until she goes to sleep, which just steals my heart everyday because I know that in about ten years I won't even be allowed in her room! God gaves mothers (and wives if you have a husband like Michael :) ) the best gift in the world, and I am so honored that he bestowed this gift on me. I will leave you with pictures of Alliebug brushing her teeth. Her newest feat that she things she can totally accomplish by herself.
And these were at the zoo a couple of months ago. She and her cousin Luke had a ball. Everytime a fish would zoom by them, they would try to catch it!
