JAKE'S FAVORITE THINGS
Jake LOVES his Blackberry phone he got for his birthday. He likes getting his e-mails at a moment's notice, checking scores on the internet, and having a phone that is solely HIS. We have shared one cell phone for years and now we both have our own.
Jake lives for baseball. He's currently in a Fantasy Baseball league (has done it for the past couple years.) He LOVES the Red Sox and just wishes he lived closer to Boston so he could have season tickets to Fenway. He just bought Ben his first glove and a few balls and enjoys throwing the ball around on Saturdays. (I think Jake enjoys it just as much as Ben does!)
JAMIE'S FAVORITE THINGS
I get a rush when I find cute clothes for great deals. My favorite (and cheap) places: DI and garage sales. I can't wait for garage sale season to start up. (All the clothes above were bought at DI over the past couple weeks.) I admit it, I have a problem. :) I remember going to garage sales and DI with my mom when I was younger. At the time I didn't like spending the time to rummage through crap and spend hours looking only to come out with 2 shirts and 1 pair of pants... but, now I thrive doing it. Of course with three kids it's kind of hard going through 10 racks at DI, but you learn to go fast. :)
I heard many people thought Jack Johnson's new album was ho-hum, just like all his other albums. Well, I have to say I LOVE track #4, "Angel." If you haven't heard it yet, listen to it on Youtube. It's a really short song, but so pretty. I play it a couple times in a row in our car and Ben has asked me twice now "Why is this song playing again?" I can't help it. It's just that good. Give it a listen and tell me what you think.
BEN'S FAVORITE THINGS
It seems that Ben is going through a "camo phase." The last couple times we have gone to Old Navy I told Ben he could pick out something. As you can see from above, we have a theme going. :) (I also forgot to include in the pic his camo swim trunks he picked out two months ago.)
Ben has loved Mariokart for years but has just discovered this little gem, Cruisin' USA for Nintendo 64. He told me a few days ago that this game is "just SO COOL!"
EMMA'S FAVORITE THINGS
Emma and I share a bowl of cereal every morning for breakfast. Her latest craze is Lucky Charms and I have to feed her the pink marshmellows first, of course.
Emma LOVES her pink clothes and I'm having trouble getting her to wear anything that isn't pink, have hearts, a bow, or flowers on it. Her two favorite pieces of clothing at the moment are pictured above (her new heart skirt we got at Kohl's yesterday and her Old Navy heart swimsuit, the one she tells everyone she is going to wear at the beach in Malaysia!)
JOSH'S FAVORITE THINGS
Josh loves swinging in the backyard. We just bought this from Lowe's and hooked it up to the swing set. Josh could stay swinging in this for hours if I let him.
