Gadgets and Gizmos

My family agrees that electricity is very.. used in this family. I can't really justify it any way else to be honest. Well I disagreed. But you tell me.. is our family overpacking on the electronics?Above is Daddy's iPod. Throughout BlackBerry's he's recently owned, he doesn't bother to buy a newer iPod. Sticking with his faithful first-generation 50 GB orginial is a smart choice. Saves us money!
Here's my phone. Sleek, shiny, nice. Yes. Although I yearn for an iPhone or something fancier, I exceedingly agree that I am quite lucky. That's item #2 that has been so faithful to me. I love my phone :)

Here's Daddie's new BlackBerry. One of the many in his collection. His BlackBerry Bold. No, not the Storm (which, in my eyes, is the neatest BlackBerry yet). It's the second-nicest BB to the BBStorm. Good enough for me!

Here's my iPod. So far, this has been me and daddie's show. Just wait. I love the many features on this-- including the color change. In the sunlight, or gray outside light, it looks royal blue. In normal inside light, it's dark purple. Not only that, but when you shake it up and down, it shuffles the song. Suh-weet!

Here's mom's iPod Video. It's a nice music player/video watcher/tv... whatever suits you. Love it!

Last but not least, Tal and Ethan's (but mostly Tal's) iPod Shuffle. Cheap, quickbuy.. bingo.
Think we're too electronic? Please tell us if we are.. we must know!

We've been facing a *tiny* problem.. with - yes - **Emma**

No, no, not a problem.. actually, quite the opposite! More of a.. hmmmm.... stage.

The Drama Stage......

If you have younger children at the age of about 4-5, you have either encountered or are soon to encounter this stage.

I warn you.. be careful what you say.

But that's nothing. Emma's always been a drama queen. What awakens us, (or, well, me) is the faces and expressions!

Don't beleive me? Well, then, go right ahead and take a very close look.

Exhibit A ~ Cheeky, cocky, bratty, prissy, popular, self-centered, full of herself. (It's the best!)

Exhibit B ~ Angered, frustrated, *not-getting-her-way*, unenthusiastic, or her normal face :'(

And finally, .. Exhibit C ~ Excited, motionless, leaping inside, our little princess.

Did I not tell you? Well, if you see the signs, just remember:

I warned YOU

Funny Moment

I was sitting on the computer doo-dah-ing through my blogs past, and Emma was nearby me playing with her tea set in a pioneer dress. I was a little bored, and since I was texting someone, my phone vibrated nearby.

Without hesitation, Emma said, "Addie?"

And although I was barely paying attention to her I responded, "Yes?!"

and she turned to me and put her hands on her hips and said, "Your phone needs you."

Going Private!

We're making our blog private to reduce the watchful eye from stalkers. Last time we tried this, it didn't work out. If you'd like to be invloved in this privitization, leave your email and we'll try to make this work. Not many family members visit our blog, so if you don't comment with your email then I'm sorry, you most likey won't be selected to view it :(

Thanks for the understanding and we'll try to make this work!
