This picture is PRICELESS and I couldn’t resist posting it!!!!!
This SaturdayÂ I have a date with my Pooh Bear and we’re going to see Nickelodeon’s Storytime Live, as if we didn’t see enough Nick Jr. at home! I think he will have a ball! He is at the point where he will actually sit in one place for a specific amount of time to watch his daily soaps which consist of Yo Gabba Gabba, Ni Hao Kai-Lan, Dora the Explorer, The Backyardigans and The Wonder Pets! No matter what he’s doing as soon as he hears one of those theme songs, he drops it to go and tune in. It’s the funniest thing! We get to see four different performances in one amazing show! I look forward to seeing the smile on his face, watching him sing along and taking tons of pictures. Hope we get the opportunity to chat with the characters and take pictures. To be Continued…
My Pooh Bear is turning TWO next week and we are throwing a Birthday Party next Saturday! I was up last night designing this invitation. I was undecided about a theme but, settled on Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa because this movie seems to be playing in my house 24/7.
I Googled Madagascar Clip Art and below are some of the images that I got from various website and used to create the finished invitation.

* Okay, who’s ready for an all inclusive vacation cruise aboard the Oasis of The Seas?
A little girl asked her mother, “How did the human race appear?”
The mother answered, “God made Adam and Eve and they had children, and so was all mankind made.
Two days later the girl asked her father the same question…
The father answered, “Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved.”
The confused girl returned to her mother and said, “Mom, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said they developed from monkeys?”
The mother answered, “Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his.”
I couldn’t help this one…
