My Art Project

ADVISORY: there are a couple GRAPHIC pictures. If you are squeamish, don't blame me for getting queasy. (there are only 2 or 3)

I know that some of you have been dying to see this, so I figured I would post it. We had a final art project to do for my class, and I worked on it (i.e. took pictures) while we were on the cruise. I know that Julia has been on the edge of her seat waiting to see it.
The message that I was trying to get across was that art and beauty can be found in everyday things. We just need to take the time to look for them. Which pictures and song do you like the best?

The new G

So, after such a long wait, I finally have the new car that I bought. It has taken me about a week to get some pictures, but I finally did. Now, many of you may not care, but I will give you some of the specs on it. If you wish to read, go ahead. If you don't care, just skip the rest of this post!! I will have a few pics at the bottom.

It is a 2006 Infiniti G35, with the sport package. That means it has a modified suspension to corner faster and increase control. It also includes the spoiler. I have upgraded 18 inch tires wheels, and the previous owner must have really liked going fast, because he has upgraded performance tires. (Rated to go up to 150, as opposed to the normal, rated up to 85 MPH) The top end speed, from what I hear, is 154. I have yet to test that out. I will let you know when I do.
It goes from 0-60 in 6.1 seconds, which is pretty fast. That beats all but 1 mustang off the line. (Take that Justin) There are just under 300 hp.
Now, I should also tell you that Sarah has a few things that she really likes about the new car as well. It has heated seats, for those really cold mornings, and it has a sunroof, for warm sunny days.
The best part about it, is that Pointe is making the payments for me!! That's right. All of this wonderful, and I don't even pay for it. Pretty sweet deal, huh?
That is all that I can think of for now. If you want to see more pics, or want to know anything else about it, just let me know.

"Uuuuugh, uuuugh!" These are the sounds I hear from Walker as he pulls my hand to walk me to what he wants. In this case it was the stroller. It was close enough to Walker's nap time on Thursday, but still too early to put him down. So, Walker and I went for a walk in the late morning. The weather was FREEZING cold and since Jason has recently taught Walker to say "BRRR" every time he goes outside, that was the first thing he said as we stepped out. I was only able to stand the cold for so long and Walker can only stand being bundled up for so long, we went around the complex twice. (That's not very far). Coming in the door to our building, I see the sign welcoming all residents to the 2nd floor for a nice quiet study area and some hot chocolate. "Sounds good to me! Walker do you want to get some cocoa?" We headed up the elevator and Walker was excited to round the corner where the microwave, jug of water and hot chocolate mixes were. He started pointing excitedly and said the magic word. "COCOA", as he did the sign language for 'pretty please'. One hand across his chest is just 'please', but two hands going out across his chest is 'pretty please'. He was such a good little boy waiting patiently while I warmed up the water. We enjoyed our cocoa and headed back home for a nap.
As you mothers know there is an 'unloading' that happens the second you walk in the door. While I was unloading, Walker was trying to put away the stroller chanting, "cocoa, cocoa". What else was I supposed to do but grab the camera!
