I haven't seen it, but I have heard so many things about it I really want to go see it. I never usually suggest a movie without previewing it, but the preview I saw online told me I REALLY want to see it.

FIREPROOF is out right now and I looked on their website and it named the Foothills as one of the places playing it. It is about marriage and it I think it would be inspiring to everyone to work harder on their marriage, even if it is going great. :)

If anyone has seen it, please comment on what you thought, and if you go see it, please tell us what you think! I will comment when I see it too!!

Everyone needs a date night out, maybe we can swap kiddos??? I am all about it!
(free babysitting and a date night! woohoo!)
TO see a preview go to


Halloween costume?

I thought it would be fun to dress Hailey up for Halloween. I was wondering if any of you have a baby sized Halloween costume you wouldn't mind her borrowing for the night. She usually goes to bed at 7 and she'll be staying at home that night...but I thought it would be cute to take pictures for her first Halloween.

My friend, Michelle W., shared the following websites with me this week. Then, I added our favorite to the bottom of the post!

Free Multiplication Computer Game!

When I find a great thing, I feel compelled to share it! My son has been struggling to learn his multiplication facts. So, my husband and I got online looking for a fun way for him to master multiplication. We found an amazing educational computer program that you can download for free. Timez Attack is a fun game that teaches children to master their multiplication facts quickly. My son begs to play it.

Dan Post Running For Re-Election!

Dan Post is running for re-election this election. He is a man of integrity and has done a fabulous job leading and guiding our school district. Please support him this election. I'm enclosing his Election Statement.

"Marana Unified School District is recognized as one of the best in the State. Families choose a home in Marana because they want to be in this school district. Businesses consider the reasonable primary and secondary school tax rate and the quality schools when deciding to come to Marana. This condition has not been achieved by accident, caring and competent teachers, hard working support staff and capable administrators working together with the support of my consistent leadership over the last 28 years has enabled MUSD to become an award winning school district. During my tenure we have built or remodeled all 17 schools, hired more than 95% of the nearly 2000 employees and grown from 2,000 students to 13,000. Even though we are a first class school district, we want to be World Class and we are not there yet. With the help of my leadership and the participation of over 4000 community and school inputs, we have developed a strategic plan and a road map to World Class status. Our goals and priorities are well defined and focus on providing an education that will allow each child to achieve their potential. These are difficult times for public education in Arizona. School funding by the State has been sharply reduced, construction of new facilities has all but been eliminated and unfunded mandates by the State Legislator are causing a heavy burden on local districts. The number of special needs students is at an all time high and requires our best efforts to provide teachers, aids, counselors and specialized transportation. Yet at the same time we must find a way to challenge students who have need for accelerated learning services. I believe that every child is unique, that every child is special and that every child can learn and we must strive to treat them accordingly, even as our student population continues to grow. I strongly believe that we must expand our vocational curriculum and develop more partnerships with businesses and institutions to place students in intern situations for hands on training. We must expand all day kindergarten and keep elementary class sizes as low as funding allows. If we did not live in a desirable climate and that most teachers choose the profession because of their desire to serve and a love for children, we would not be able to find enough competent teachers, because of the pay; this must be addressed by electing representatives who have education as a priority. We have a Superintendent that is new to our District and a governing board that has relatively little experience. I believe that my experience and leadership is needed now more than ever. If elected, I pledge to continue to work hard as leader to overcome our weaknesses and build on our strengths, that working together we will become a World Class school district."


I ordered a huge 40lb block of Mild Cheddar Cheese, if anyone is interested you can buy it by the pound from me for $2.25 a pound. I have some already shredded or you can have it in big blocks. It's wonderful 100% cheese & tastes amazing! (Next time peek at your cheese ingredients-like anti-caking agents & colorings! yuck!)
I separate mine into quart freezer bags and stick it in the freezer to use all year. Please let me know if you are interested so that you can get it fresh. 682-3994 or 260-9882 Thanks Renee!

Time Out For Women

(click on logo above for info)
I have never been to the Time Out for women in Phoenix, but I know some of you have. I know there are a few more days to pre-register and I thought it would be fun to get a group of us together to go to it. Is anybody interested? It wouldn't be very fun to go alone. If you are interested in going, email me (emmatson at msn dot com) ASAP.
