Why I Love Blogging

1. It helps me keep in touch.
Since I don't have a Facebook, my blog helps me communicate with my family. They know what we are up to, and they can comment and let me know what they are up to as well.

2. I Forget Things
I forget everything. Mom tells me something downstairs, and when I go upstairs to do it, I forget what I came upsatairs to do.

3.I Can be Crazy.
I can talk about the most random things on this blog, and I never have to worry about you guys making 'She's crazy' faces at me. At least I don't think you do......

4.I can preserve memories
When I turn 50 years old, and my memories are blurred up (trust me, I can't remember what I ate for breakfast this morning. There is no possible way that I will remember ANYTHING by the time I turn 50.) I will have something to look at to remind me of all my memories. And when I'm laying in bed, all sick and bedridden, I'll have something to show my children and grandchildren.

5.I love to share my passions with you.
Sometimes I read a quote and I get so excited and want to change my life and work really hard and change the world and excetra, excetra. Now, when I blog something, not only am I doing it for myself, I'm being held accountable by all of you.

6.It makes me happy.
I love it when I get views, or comments. It makes me so happy to see that the work I put into writing doesn't go unnoticed.

But most of all, thank you for giving me something to blog about.

Rohan's Baptism

Over the weekend, we all went to Rohan's baptism. Rohan is just around 6 months old, and he is the sweetest, most smiley baby I have ever met. I haven't seen him cry yet. After the baptism, we went to the reception, which was held at a building with a FAB-ulous view. So we had to have a photo shoot.

Later, when the party was winding down, Neil and his buddy Kenneth had some fun with the ceiling decor. Doesn't he look handsome??

Easter 2012

This Easter was alot of fun. Yesterday I set up an Easter egg hunt ouside for the kids. Neil won one of the special prizes. Everone got these really cut cookies from a bakery near our house. Today I was bored so Neil, Kiren and I made a chain that counts down the days to India (fyi we are on day 66.) Every day has a good deed and every ten days there is a piece of candy.
Sorry that it is on the side. I can't turn it.

Hope everone had a great Easter!!
