"Whip it"

Has anyone seen this movie "Whip it" I really liked it. Made me think back when I was a teen and thought it would be cool to be on a Woman's roller derby team. But I was never that good on skates.
I am trying to watch more movies this year, at least a couple a month. Does anyone have any good movies they can recommend?

Play Day~

The grand kids and I had a fun day at the park on Monday. Above is the baseball diamond built for the youth in our community

And the covered play area. The cover sure is nice in the summer

A beautiful sunny 76 degrees day

Allyssa and I walked around the walking trails

Allyssa is so beautiful

Joshua ran the trails but slowed down enough for Allyssa to take his picture. They are growing up so much. I am just glad they still like spending time with Grandma!

Beautiful Sunset

Last night we had a beautiful sunset. I only wish I had my camera with me. All I had was my cell phone camera and it does not do justice to this sunset. I may have to go hunting (camera in hand) tonight looking for another beautiful sunset.
Today I have the pleasure of having my two older grand children with me. They have the day off for Martin L. King holiday. I think we will go to the park.

Show and Tell

Nicky wanted to do a little show & tell with his toys today. I like to give him little toys from the movies we watch. The first is Barry from the "Bee Movie" and also "Shrek"

Then there is these puzzle pieces from "Toy Story" I got these in a set of 9 at the dollars store. A small price to pay for his fun! The bee & shrek I have had since before he was born. I am glad I saved them. They were toys handed out in kids meals at different fast food restaurants.

I have been getting a lot of the animated kids movies from the Library for him to watch. He is loving it. Also I am starting to read to him more now that he is 2. I did this for his older brother and sister and they both love to read. There mom credits me for that since I am the book worm in my family.

I know Arizona temperatures are mild compared to other areas but I have been so cold these last couple of weeks. My home faces north so I don't get a lot of sunshine except in my bedroom. Oh the sunshine feels so good!
And all who live where it is a deep freeze, I feel for you, I really do!

Happy New Year~

I am looking forward to 2011 & all that comes with it!
I haven't made any resolutions this year. I know I would just break them. But I do need to take my health seriously and start eating better and move my body more. I am not getting any younger and I need to quit abusing my body by not taking better care of ME!
What about you?
