Happy Easter!

New church home, maybe. We went church visiting again, which, according to our friends Jennifer and Pat, makes us “Cheasters,” or people who only make it to church for Christmas and Easter. Why “Cheasters” and not “Chreasters” is not clear to me. Anyway, we really liked this church and Minime saw some people she knew from school and it looks […]

Meet the Robinsons (3D)

[rate 3] Minime really liked it. Minimike, not so much. She did not like wearing the glasses at all so she may be cross-eyed for the rest of her life. Instead of the flimsy red and blue paper glasses they give you these plastic Top Gun meets Jackie O things. There are no singing crabs. Singing frogs, yes, but it’s […]

Musiceducation of the Minis

New Songs for the Mini Music Library These are from Mike’s 70’s Anthology that he gave out for Christmas. If you are not on his Annual Mix CD list I believe he is taking orders. “Breakdown” – Alan Parsons Project, which is appropriate, because that’s what Minimike did when I could not find it on the CD. I was looking […]
