McMillan Time

So... I have to give credit where credit is do. I thought I was computer savvy until I met my friend Christie. She makes me look like the Paris Hilton of computers (ummm. so this is like a keyboard? it's so hot.) This is far removed from where I used to see myself, that is, right up there with Trekkie's & Star Wars dorks (that is meant to be a compliment - no hate mail yet please. I just started this blasted thing.) Anyway, she designed my header. I chose the Halloween theme. But she rocks. Not me. She just makes me look good. Here is a quiz? Can anyone tell me where the background on the header comes from? (Christie you can't answer.) I will be so impressed.
Anyway, to start things off right (with this blastedblog). My friends (Christie & her husband Kevin) went on a date Sat night and we were fortunate enough to watch their kids. It felt like a party, and only intensified when they came to pick them up. Little did they know that I had indulgently handing out candy all night. As you can tell by their somewhat crazed expressions. Here is a video clip of Kevin with James & Cade (James very best buddy)... They are so cute together. And other crazy pics. So much fun.

Kevin says that we should probably consider joint custody of each others kids, they get along so well. And obviously Myla and Cade L-O-V-E you guys. Thanks for watching them and being so entertaining. And thanks, Jason, for teaching us "The Ceiling Fan" trick. We've done it a several times since you done learned us. :)

Maren, yea for the blog!!! So exciting. I know what you are thinking, "I've gotta get this dumb blog up so Christie will just shut up about it." Well I'm shutting. :)

It's about time you joined us in dorkville! I knew you'd cave in sooner or later.

Love it!

Welcome Maren...it is so good to have over on the dark-side of blogging! I can't wait to read all about the adventures of the Buchanan clan! And my guess for the header is The Nightmare Before Christmas, am I right? Or is that newer movie, The Corpses Bride? You didn't say I had to get it right the first time to make you impressed! Anyways, congrats on the new blog and I thin we are all better bloggers because of Christie...yahoo for Christie!

Jill, the characters are from TNBC. I don't even know if you can see the wallpaper behind it, but that's okay because I know it is there. This is what I feared. It's almost 1am & I'm blogging.

It's about FREAKING time!!! Seriously! And of course you have the cutest heading, way to go Christie! I'm suprised you didn't do a Disney theme. Now you have a blog to document your billion visits to disneyland!!! I'm so excited that you finally gave in and joined in on the fun. Now you just need to talk Chelsea into it. Love ya-Abby
