Yeah, I'm a Lil Bit Old School.

A while ago I downloaded the original Super Mario Brothers to our Wii. The Wii is really cool in that you can go online with it and download nearly any old or new Nintendo game.

I loved playing SMB back in the day on the original Nintendo game system. I used to be able to beat the game in about 5 minutes with one life.

Well, this weekend I was able to beat the game! OK, it took me about 5 lives and around 10 minutes, but I still got it baby! The princess is safe once again! I was so proud of myself that I had Aubrey take a picture of me. I'm such a dork, but oh well...it was fun!


Happy Veteran's Day

Happy Veteran's Day to all those who have served our great country...especially my Dad! We love you Dad and are so proud of you and your service. Your stories from the battlefield have strengthened my testimony as well as many others. I know the Lord and His angels kept watch over you.


Apples to Apples...Our Style

Our family loves to play the game Apples to Apples. It is a simple and fun game to play with the family. You can read about it here.

My parents are in town and we decided to play tonight. Nana won by a landslide...almost twice! We love to look at our green cards at the end of the game. We say (in jest) that the green cards describe the person who holds them. Here are the results from tonight! :o)
  • Tata: Hot, Sour, and Strange

  • Nana: Spooky, Dirty, Lumpy, Important, Rough, Helpful, and Fuzzy

  • Joey: Brave, Dark, Great, and Exciting

  • Holly: Boring and Bad

  • Aubrey: Pretty, Slow, and Warm

  • Ella: Wonderful, Hairy, and Shaggy

  • Cali: ZZZzzzz

We also played a little Hullabaloo...
