Things have been so crazy...Crazy Fun!
I got some great loot...here's a sampling of it on our NEW table...Well, not actually new, but a great hand-me-down from my mom and her boyfriend! It just needs a little bit of repair to some of the tiles and grout, but it is perfect for our little dining area. I love it.
I got to play with this little dude (N.J.) on Monday night thanks to my friends, Lori and Michael, who made him!
On Christmas Day, we had a great time opening gifts and laughing...Here's the man saying, "Please, no paparazzi!"
And finally, I leave you with this absolutely hilarious video of my mom enjoying the free Venom mask that was included with the Spider-Man 3 DVD package. None of us could stop laughing -- she is quite a character, isn't she?

Trying out video posting...and a little current events.
In an effort to test out my video posting skills, here is a clip from the documentary, Mary Anne and the Villages. This is a feature-length documentary that my longtime friend, Michael Bridenstine, wrote, directed and produced about his mother's move to The Villages gated-community in Florida. Aside from being extremely funny on a mother/son level, the documentary also examines the pros and cons of these 55+ communities and Michael's feelings of ambivalence regarding his mother's choice to move into one.
I have also chosen to feature this video because of the recent tornado events that actually hit this very community...blocks from his mom's house! Luckily, Mary Anne's house was not hit, but her friend's house lost its roof...sucked right into the twister!
LORI'S LABOR: A collection of 6 unique playlists with varying intensity and mood for your listening pleasure!
I created these original mixes for my friends to use during the labor and delivery of their first baby, Nicholas.
