Cute Babies!

I am a co-teacher for one of the toddler classes at my church on Wednesday nights. And Candy, who is also a co-teacher, suggested I take some pictures of the babies to share with you all – she’s trying to help me with my writer’s block or whatever you want to call having nothing to write about. So, here you are – pictures of babies for your enjoyment. Some of them have some blurry spots because babies are not very still!

This is little Greg. He's always got a serious look on his face and loves to do the hand motions to the songs. He also loves his daddy very much! I've never seen a daddy's boy like this before!

Here is baby Silas! He is the son of my friend Candy. Isn't he a cutie? He broke his arm and it has been in a cast the past couple of weeks, but he is starting to use it again.

This is Erin. She is the youngest of three and I think she is her mother's favorite. Shh! Don't tell the other kids. She wasn't happy about being in our class at first, but I think she likes it now.

Here are the three of them trying out some shades.
Looks like Silas has mastered the art of putting on sunglasses.

Senseo: A Guest Review

Last night I went out with the American Idol gang. Candy took some pictures, and I hope to post about that soon. In the meantime, the lovely Erika, winner of the Senseo coffee maker has been kind enough to send in her review of the product. Take it away Erika...

The Senseo – a Review

Thanks to the Chronicles of Nat, I am now the proud owner of a lovely Red Senseo coffee maker. Granted, this is not an item I would have ever purchased on my own accord. I was perfectly happy with my $10 Proctor Silex. But, after using it a few times this past weekend, I really like the Senseo and have put my $10 junker into the yard sale pile!

I will say that I don’t think the Senseo necessarily saves any time in the kitchen, but for a household of one, it is a much easier system than scooping out a small amount of coffee, figuring out how much water you need, etc. etc. The little pods are so easy to use, and the coffee turns out perfectly. I find that one pod works perfectly for my Fiestaware tea cup. You can also use two pods for a large mug of coffee. The Senseo heats up quickly, and it takes about 1 minute to get your first cup.

The coffee pods are a little pricey, but I think it’s worth it for the convenience factor. And, since I only drink coffee at home on the weekends, the pods will last a good while for me.

On a scale of 1-10, I give the Senseo an 8.8!

Sorry From Nat!

Hey reader(s)! Just wanted everyone to know that I am still alive! There just really hasn't been much going on lately that's interesting enough to write about. I hope you understand. Last week I saw a couple of plays, and I also saw the movie “Funny People” – go see it – but I guess I haven’t felt like writing about those. Other than those few things, I haven’t been up to much except for mowing the lawn and tending to the garden. So, I apologize for not making this place more interesting to visit lately. Hope everyone has a great week!
