I need some advice!!!!

I have vowed to get a new camera for my purse!!!  Well, I go about it by going to Costco's and talking to the photo girl, looking at all the camera's they have and choosing the one that will work best for my purposes!  RUSS on the other hand is making me second guess my choice!!!  He has to research every possible camera... search every site... then after forever order it!!!  Tell me if I am wrong and should take this camera back!  Melanie, was yours the Nikon or the Olympus??? (We have a little bet going!!!)

6th photo, 6th Picture, Kind of...

My 6th folder, 6th picture was a craft picture, and who wants to see that!!!  So I skipped that one and this was the next file.  
This is a picture of our family when we went on the Mexican Rivera cruise with all of the Steeneck family (Thanks again grandma & grandpa)!  It was so fun!  There were about 40 of us running around!  We ate, swam, snorkeled, ate, played games, ate (you get the picture) our hearts out!!!  This was the trip that Morgan accidentally ate SNAILS!!!

I tag Liz, Krista, Jennifer, Becky, Jeanette, & Erin!

The BEST thing!!!

Yeah, yeah, yeah... I along with everyone else have saved hundreds of dollars this week!  I now have enough cake mixes to last through the millennium!!!  We are still plowing through the mountains (yes, Russ likes to stack them into the form of a mountain at the checkout) of yogurt from last week!  BUT TODAY I had the best deal EVER!!!  We got 20 gallons of gas for only 77 cents a gallon!!!  I don't think that I have ever paid that little!!!  I decided then and there that I needed a camera that will fit into my purse for just such occasions!  I had to settle for a picture of the receipt when I got home!

Happy Birthday to ME!

It all started Tuesday night when Russ cooked dinner and made me a Chocolate on chocolate birthday cake!  (It's one of the many reasons I married him... his cake baking skills!)  Then he took Wednesday (my B-Day) off so he could do my stuff!!!  He took the kids to school,  arranged for me not to go to scouts, took Meg (and me) to Meg's orthodontist appointment, arranged for Morgan's activity day rides to and from the church (which later got cancelled), bought me cookies, took me out to lunch... What a great guy!

Pres. Day

Madagascar 2
Eagle Eye

We all debated (literally) what we would do this Presidents Day!  We talked about going to see Inkheart or maybe Mall Cop... but in the end we ended up renting Madagascar 2 and Eagle Eye and hunkering down for the day!  Everyone got to pick out their favorite treats (up to $3) at Wall-Mart. Needless to say.. we had lots of treats and fun!  I think Madagascar 2 was their favorite!

Who shows up to an audition in a bikini???

I don't know about you but, last seasons Amer. Idol with David Archuletta got us hooked!  Russ, Ben & I (Sometimes a few others) watch it together each night!  I was soooo looking forward the the VERY UNtalented bikini girl getting kicked off!!!  But the need for ratings won!!!  I cannot believe that she stayed in!!!  Hopefully she won't last long!!!
