I Heart Faces Entry















I had squirreled away some money to purchase a Wii system for us since Christmas time. So, while on our way back from visiting yet another college, we stopped off at Target (Tar-Jay as we like to call it) and picked one up on sale! I had planned on getting Wii Fit too but they were out of stock. That will have to wait.

My son and hubby will be setting up the system tonight. I think it'll be a fun thing for the four of us to do together. I hope to get some pics!

These past few weeks of planning college visits have really made me think about the fact that we don't have a whole lot of time left with the four of us all living together under one roof. Sure, they come home from college on weekends and at vacation but at that point they are also starting the cut that cord and think about where/how they will begin their new lives after college. And mom and dad are wondering how their lives will be now that the nest will soon be empty.....

Speaking of wonder (trying to lighten up the mood and segway into this week's I Heart Faces category), here is a photo I took of my kids old babysitter a while back. She's my entry into the Adult category, and the little guy is my entry into the Kids category.

Be sure to and check out all of the other entries to I Heart Faces.

Don't worry about your kids visiting from college. If you are at all nearby your washer /dryer will become ever-so attractive!
Have fun with the wii!
I play at Ayleen's and really like the Raymans Rabbits and ...Bowling!

Christina's right.....you take such wonderful photos, esp. portraits, this meme was surely made for you!
Lovely faces and another sweet post :o)
So, when you're playing on the Wii fit (I want one too!) remember to not only get photos of you guys playing....but of the look on your Beagle's face while you're playing :D

Thanks ladies (blushing). I look at the other entries on the I Heart Faces site and then strive to be better.

Life with Kaishon said...

Really beautiful pictures! I like your babysitter : ). I can tell she is a sweetie! She just has that nice friendly look about her.

PS I was not as impressed with the wii fit as everyone else, so maybe you won't be either. It makes fun of you. I don't like being made fun of... Not one little bit!

Dot O said...

Oh no, the Wii Fit will poke fun at me?? I was unaware of that..... Too late for me now as hubby found it on Amazon last night and it's already on its way.

Thanks for the heads up Life with Kaishon.

Janis, I got Wii Ski and since I'll never ski in real life, I'm hoping this is the next best thing....

Ohhh, nice pictures, Dot!

Yup, it's definitely an adjustment when they start going off to college. Savor these days :-)

We had a Wii visit us last week when my oldest daughter came and the kids LOVED playing on it! They'd love it if their older siblings would forget to take it back home with them....LOL!

Blessings,
Tammy ~@~
