Mexico as well as going to Costa Rica in March, I'll be going to Mexico in April with my dad and the my sisters' family. Poor Chuck has to stay home and work.

...Check this place looks awesome! Looking forward to spending lots of time with my dad....

Tiny printer I wanted to get a portable printer to take on trips with me so I could scrap my trip as I go.....crazy I know, but I love to scrap in the morning when I'm away. By the time I get home with all my stuff from my trip I never end up scrapping much of it. I didn't want to spend too much $$$ so I figured I probably wouldn't find anything.....but i did, on awesome EBAY....This little cutie was only 20 bucks! and it prints decent pics....whooda thunk?

I Love My Ring

One of the best things about dropping a few pounds is that my ring has always been too tight. Chuck had wanted to get it made bigger to fit me better when he first gave it to me, but I wanted to and "grow out of it" instead......and I did! It fits perfectly! Thanks baby!

Paper Dolls

I've been playing with paper dolls lately....Grace lost her head.

7 inches and counting...

I know its not very official.....the photos are blurry because it was snowing so much. We're supposed to get 3-5 inches more before before its done.

I shoveled all that....

So much snow....

Its snowing like crazy here today....I didn't have to work today so I've actually been enjoying the blizzard. I've already shoveled twice.....and burned aprox. 754 calories! Altho my back kinda hurts....

Me & my girl Grace

I love sharing new crafts with Gracie-girl.On Monday I taught her how to embroider.We had a nice afternoon together just stitching away.

What's she so happy about?!?!

Her baby boy feels better....that's what!! (See next post)

Little Mister

Little Mister had a rough go this past weekend. He had several allergic reactions on Sunday where he was having a hard time breathing. Amy gave him several saline treatments but he needed more so she ended up in the ER that night. He's doing much better today thank goodness....he's just the sweetest boy ever!

Daytime Nap May Boost Memory

Napping May Give the Brain a Chance to Reinforce New Memories, Sleep Experts Say

Feb. 1, 2008 -- Take a daytime nap, and you might wake up with a sharper memory. That's what happened in a new napping study that involved 33 undergraduate students.

First, the students took three different tests of their short-term memory.

In one test, they had to learn and remember pairs of unrelated words, such as "alligator" and "cigar." In another test, they had to navigate and remember a maze shown on a computer screen. And in the last test, the students had to copy a complex drawing onto a sheet of paper, and then sketch the drawing from memory.

Next, half of the students napped for about 45 minutes, while other students watched TV. Finally, all of the students repeated the three memory tests

Napping boosted scores on the word-pair test, but not the other two tests.

A closer look at the test scores shows that on all three tests, people with the highest scores before napping were the ones with the biggest gains in their post-nap test scores.
