Why I love Usborne books

By now most of you know that I'm a Educational Consultant for Usborne books. I got involved with them 4 years ago when Johnny was a baby because I wanted to build a great home library. I've done home shows on and off since then but mostly, I just order the books for myself and any intersted friends and family. Recently, I've started selling them directly to Libraries and Schools in the Las Vegas Area and I have to say that its helped me get even more excited about them. I swear that I will stop buying them for myself with every order that I submit for someone else but I just can't help it. I love to read to my kids and I love that they love books. At this point, half of our Christmas budget will probably be books, but Oh well...

Above is a picture of what I found one night when John put the kids to bed. Its so sweet I had to post it. He said she kept requesting books to bring to bed with her so she could look at them and this is how it ended up.

Here are some pictures that my mom took of the kids and me while she was out visiting us in October. We went to the Rain Forest Cafe and The Mirage Dolphin Habitat. We also went to the pumking patch and to a few parks. I love spending time with her almost as much as the kids do. One of the perks of living away from family is th Quality time we get to spend when people come to visit. Of course she was the one who remembered the camera so the pictures are of me and the kids. And, like a good daughter, I never got any of her. Oh well, I'll make up for it in Disneyland in a few weeks.

Bryce Canyon - Labor Day 2008

I was feeling guilty earlier in the year that I don't get I feel I should done in a day so I decided that I should blog only as a reward. Well, you can see by my lack of posts how often that works. Anyway, John asked why I don't update it anymore and said that he checks to see it which made me realize that its not just for me, and by not blogging I'm missing out on keeping up with my friends so...I'm back!

I know this post is not very timely but it was a great trip so I want to add it anyway. We went to Bryce with my sisters and their families over Labor day and had a great trip. We had one day of rain but other than that, it was a lot of fun. Johnny LOVED camping with his cousins and Sarah loved playing in the dirt. The views were gorgeous and I would definitely go again.
