I <3 the Weekend!

I loved this weekend. Mostly because my house was filled with kids. And my husband (who was recently in California for longer than either one of us liked).

First, I took the plunge on Friday and bought myself an IPhone. Let me start out by saying that I have not owned a cell phone in a loooong time. So to go from nothing to carrying around a little hand-held computer/phone amped up to the max ... is quite a difference. I now don't know how I lived without it. I mean, I can "plug" into anything in the world in seconds. "Hey kids --- want to go the movies? Well, let me just press this little button on my IPhone screen and I can tell you what is playing --- where and when. I can also read you the reviews of the movie ... tell you how much the popcorn will cost ... and exactly how many miles it takes to get to said movie." Seriously.

"Then, while we are waiting in line for said movie, I can videotape your wisecracks..."

"Later, as soon as I finish videotaping your antics, I can instantly e-mail it to anyone in the world. YouTube included .... mwuuuuaahaahaaahaaaahaaaaaa."

Oh how I love hanging out with the kiddos. And how I love my new IPhone.

Also ... while we were away having our fun Mr. Daddy/Uncle Halis was busy building new walls in our home to prepare for .... (drum roll please )..... our next adoption! We are building bedrooms in an otherwise "open" home in order to get adoption approval again (separate bedrooms for the kids, etc.). Lots of changes in the house that make it more conventional ... something I normally don't like at all. But I will do whatever it takes to bring more babies into our family :)

(OK, so IPhone pics are not the greatest, but you get the idea...)

By the way, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was a GREAT movie. Very funny, sweet and insightful. Perfect for the whole family to see together. I was laughing out loud so often that I lost track of all the funny parts (you know --- the parts that you all talk about as you leave the theatre). Definitely a movie I will buy on DVD.

We also spent some time at the park and two trips to Dunkin Donuts (not wanting to cook at home due to construction). Lots of fun ...

(more IPhone pics)

I hope you all had a great weekend ... full of laughs and love.

Chat with ya tomorrow ;)

I am jealous! I want one so bad! I am glad you had fun with the phone and with your family this weekend.

My kids have been wanting to see that movie. We may have to go next weekend.

Another adoption ~ Yeah! Do you know where you will be adopting from?

Tara - don't be too jealous. The IPhone comes with a hefty monthly bill. We will see how long I last with it. The intention is that it will save me money --- as the world, my business, etc. is at my fingertips. We'll see ....

And as for the adoption ... we are planning to adopt from Louisianna at this time (I totally spelled that wrong, didn't I?).

Hi Missy!

Yes, we are getting mentally & "household" prepared for the next child. I am slightly excited ... but lots of nervous. You know how it is!

Let me know how the book reading goes.
