Aloha Friday #15 - Thankful


I said I was NOT going to get online today, but as you can see...


Merry Christmas to you all!
I hope that everyone is having a safe and happy holiday season!

Today, its FRIDAY!
Aloha! Head on over and say hey to Kailani...


Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!
What is ONE thing that you are thankful for today? Big or Small?

I am thankful for my husband. Although he is in Afghanistan right now, he made it a point to get online today to tell us Merry Christmas! I miss him like CRAZY!

Merry Christmas you all!

A Christmas Carol Special Edition - Review


I was recently sent , A Christmas Carol Special Edition: The Charles Dickens Classic with Christian Insights and Discussion Questions for Groups and Families, from FSB Associates.
I have to tell you, I really enjoyed it!
I have read A Christmas Carol before, and yes... It is one of those books that I have always liked...
But, this particular edition gives you more of insight as to the Religious man that Charles Dickens was.
All throughout the book, you will find notes in the margins explaining the Christian background/meaning of what he was saying.
Also, at the end of each "Stave" you have discussion questions.
This book would be perfect for a book club or a Sunday School Class.
I also think that this would be perfect for a family to read together to get into the "Christmas Spirit."
With just a few days until Christmas, I would love it if all of you went to get this book to add to your family library!
I know that we will treasure this book through the years ahead!

********** I thank FSB Associates for providing me this complimentary book for review. The opinions expressed are my own.**********

Over the weekend...

This past weekend, I had my stepsons over so that we could do Christmas with them.
I am telling you, they are growing so fast!
I know that they love getting to see how fast their baby brother is growing too!
It is crazy to think that Christmas is ALMOST here!
I am so excited for the fact that it is Broxtons first Christmas...
BUT, it also makes me sad knowing that Marc will be missing it all.

While the boys were here, we SKYPED their dad so that he could see them open their Christmas present. I went ahead and gave them the clothes we got them for Christmas the night before...
Saved the best for last...
Yep..
We got them a Wii!
I have to tell you, that is a pretty fun game!
I am ready to go and see what all games they actually have that go with it.
Have you played a Wii before?
I love it!
Where was this when I was younger? I had the plain old Nintendo..

Please, please tell me you remember that...
Duck Hunt, Mario Brothers, the boxing game and who can forget the racing game?
Those were classics back then, but I tell you now, that BOWLING on Wii, good stuff!

Hope y'all are enjoying the holidays...
(Think I might go play a bit of Wii now...
Oh yeah, I got a TURKEY on it!)
