Tuesday :-)

Our visit is wonderful! Spending all this time with my parents is such a HUGE blessing. And the boys are thrilled, just like me to have them here. Last night we met my Dad's side of the family at a restaurant for dinner. We only see each other when my parents make visits back East, so it was really great to see everyone. When we were leaving J saw my mom having trouble with the zipper on her coat. At the same time, he was trying to zip himself and was having trouble. So my mom stopped to help him and told him to "suck it in". He didnt know what she meant so she explained that he needed to pull him tummy in, so the coat would zip up easier. Then when she went back to fighting with her own zipper, he turned to her and said "I guess you need to suck it in too.". This had us all cracking up.
Today mom and dad watched the boys all afternoon because I had a doctors appointment. After a few hours, some x-rays and 15 vials of blood later, we came home with dinner. Ribs from Famous Daves BBQ and Crab Cakes from Bobby Chez....anyone who lives in NJ knows these are the best BBQ and Crabcake joints and Totally worth the drive. Luckily these two places are only 3 miles apart and only about 4 miles from my doctor.
After dinner the door bell rang.....YAY! it was the Fed Ex man bringing our new Poingo that I won from Miranda at the Keeper of the Cheerios! We LOVE this Poingo! The boys just finished the Cars book and are starting the Finding Nemo book. The pen is the perfect size for little hands, and besides the great benefits of the story being read to my kids(So I dont have to do it all the time) there are also lots of learning activites. Thankfully so far the boys are sharing nicely. I cant wait to get more books for them to use with the pen :-) Thanks again Miranda....this was an awesome Contest giveaway!!!

I also wanted to thank Anna from Boogers, Bibs, Books and Bubbles for my big pack of Coupons! I got it in the mail yesterday and cant wait to get down to business planning next months meals. These coupons (and I got a TON of them) will be such a big help with our grocery bill. Thanks again Anna!!

Well I am glad that your visiting parents are an enjoyment to your whole family. I hope all goes well at the doctors. How does this Poingo work? Does it read the books for the kids? I have never heard of one, but it sounds like a great gift for my 2 1/2 year old niece. Have a great day. Oh, we will be going to Washington D.C. the day after Christmas, any suggestions on places to visit? We have never been.
