Going Completely Wireless

Joe and I have been talking lately about getting a wireless printer. I absolutely love our current laser printer. It’s beyond awesome. But, a wireless printer would be a lot easier when we get Joe a laptop and get rid of our desktop computer (are any of the epson printers wireless??). Plus, I would be able to print coupons off my iPhone (and, with a two-print limit per computer, I can take all the additional prints I can get!).

Do any of you have wireless printers? What do you think about them?

From the Mouths of Babes

Tonight was Joe’s turn to read Lucy’s bedtime stories. We always finish with “Goodnight Moon”, and when he got to the part about the old lady whispering, “Hush”, Lucy pointed to the old lady and said, “Mama!”

What did my supportive husband say? “No, sweetie, not until Saturday.”

Hide and Seek

One of our favorite pastimes is playing hide and seek with Lucy by closing her bedroom door and hiding behind it until she comes to find us.

This morning, it was quiet in the house, so I went looking for her. When I opened her bedroom door, she popped her head out from behind it like she was playing hide and seek. So cute!

Chuck E. Cheese’s: Where Babies can be Fussy

Last weekend, we took Lucy to Chuck E. Cheese’s for the first time. Joe’s parents wanted to get together with both grandkids, and we thought it would be a fun place to go.

There was a fun toddler area with lots of cars for kids to ride on, and Rivka had a blast. It took a while for Lucy to come around, which we thought was because she was tired from the time change. We found out after we got home that she had a fever. Poor girl. This was her when we first arrived:


But, after she got some pizza in her little belly, she had fun. We couldn’t keep her off the Bob the Builder, Chuck E. Cheese and Barney cars. Seriously. If we tried to take her out, she would cry. So, we let her keep riding. We wanted her to have fun!







The Rugrats ride wasn’t working (it was too full of tokens), but that didn’t detract Lucy from having fun playing with the steering wheel.


We also got a family sketch made. Guess who wasn’t happy about sitting for the 2 seconds it took to take the picture.

Of course, the biggest highlight was meeting Chuck E. Cheese. Lucy had to give him a high-five!




And, of course, I had to introduce her to skeeball, my favorite game EVER. I seriously rock at it, and now Lucy has a nice start to her collection of tickets.
