Phone & Giveaway...

We switched phone companies twenty months ago. The first phone I got was GREAT...until it started turning off sporadically. It got to the point where it would not stay on for more than one minute at a time. I tried buying a new battery and updating the software, but nothing worked. It was beyond frustrating! After dealing with a pretty useless phone for two months, my phone company had mercy on me and GAVE me a brand new, updated version of the phone I currently had (I was out of warranty and not up for an upgrade). I was SO EXCITED...for about a week. The touchscreen quit working...and there was no keyboard. Not a good combination! That phone came sooooooooooo close to being thrown out the window on many, many occasions.

When sweet boy came home with our new phones yesterday, I felt like a kid at Christmas. I am in LOVE with my new phone. It not only works (which I totally appreciate!), it is fun, fun, fun! Yay!

It is so much fun, I am having a hard time being productive :o)

For the last year or so, I have heard the saying, "there's an app for that." I have to admit, I didn't really get it. I do now!! I may be a couple years behind, but these apps are fun!

One app that I came across by accident is the local police scanner. I LOVE that one :o) I listened to the cops respond to several burglaries this morning...very interesting. One thing I heard on the scanner made me so sad. The police responded to noise coming from a vacant house...it was some homeless folks chopping wood inside the house to make a fire in the fireplace. A warm house is a luxury many do not have :o(

I downloaded several apps for the girls...talking cat, math fun, animal sounds, but I know there are so many more out there. What are your favorites for your kids?

I promise to try to do better with my blogging tomorrow :o) In fact, I have a giveaway to do this weekend so be sure and stop by!

Just for fun...a picture from this day last year...my baby girl holding my BABY boy...

I still don't have one of those cool phones, but Ben has the I-pod touch. Angry birds is definitely a family favorite, but you already know that! :o) A really funny one for your girls is Smack Talk! They'll love it. It's just silly animals repeating whatever you say in silly voices. Eva LOVES it!

I could have cared less about a fancy phone until Lyndon came home with his last week. Now, I really want one!!! He is in love with the app thing, something I did not get until now! If we find anything good, I will report it to you!
