A common sight we see here at our house. Jaymie and Will creating videos, picking songs in itunes, playing kidpix, or using photobooth all on imac. I am still amazed at how these kiddos navigate their way around the computer.
I on the other hand spent numerous hours creating Wills first year video and I can't figure out how to post it from imovie to my blog. It is sooooo good, and I hope they can help me post it at my next visit to the mac store. You will need a box of kleenex to watch it. So stayed tuned and hopefully more sooner than later I can figure out what I am doing wrong and publish it to the blog. If any mac users out there have any tips for me, send them my way. my movie is about 8 minutes long and has 2 songs embedded it.

Valentine's Day treats!!

Cow pies and chocolate covered pretzels is what my afternoon consisted of:) Only a couple of ingrediants and the kids do the creating are my kind of recipes. The kids made their Valentines treats on their half day off of school. I had colored jimmies all over the kitchen floor, but they had fun creating, so that made it worth it. Jaymie painting her pretzel :) with chocolate
Jacklyn making cow pies. yum yum

5lbs 6 inches

Wow, It has been a week since I posted last.... Most of my free time on the computer is no longer free time as I am taking my online course. Here is a photo of Will and I yesterday morning though:) We were playing around on the photo booth on iMac. Have I mentioned how much I love the iMac? It is quite a machine. I am attempting to make a video to post of our time picking up Will through his first year. I'm learning as I go, so it is hit and miss. I hope to have it done by his 1 year home date! We also just finished Wills 1 year post adoption report. Jeffrey and I spent a couple hours on it last weekend. We had to input all kinds of data. He has grown 6 inches in a year and gained 5 lbs. You would think he would have gained more with the way he eats, but I guess all the nutrients went to his height. Tomorrow is a half day in the girls district, so we plan on making our Valentines Day treats. I'll post pics of the creations in the making.

"What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like."
~ St. Augustine of Hippo
