What a Wonderful World

I finally added Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's (or IZ's) Somewhere over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World to my Ipod, I love this song. Why did it take me so long to get it on there? On that note, if you've never seen the movie 50 First Dates, you should because it has a breath taking scene in it with this song playing, love it. The movie is really funny too, Adam Sandler humor ;)

Oh! Just for fun I want to share the scene: Just a warning, it is the last scene so there are **spoilers**. View at your own risk.

We had a nice day yesterday, celebrating Alec's birthday. After he got up, he opened a few gifts and did some Yu-Gi-Oh dueling with Tim. Then the family played Mario Cart (- me, because Saddi was crazy for walk)

For dinner, Alec requested that we go to Osaka's which is a Japanese Steakhouse. He loves the Hibachi style dining and their filet mignon. We then returned to the house and played some more on the Wii and he finished his day by joining his guild for a raid.

This is Alec's happy face, can't ya tell?? It was a good day.

And now I'm off to start priming the walls of the downstairs bedroom that my talented husband has finished. Yay! Guest bedroom is soon to be completed!

This post is such a reminder of us.

Carly and Mr. Snerdley

50 First Dates is one of our favorite movies.

Video games are Nick's life and he loves to have his picture taken with his fake "roar" also.

And... IK song you mentioned is one I have on my IPod and play around the house all of the time. Probably for about a year now.

So similiar....

Happy Birthday Alec.

What Tina said! :)

I have the IZ song in my itunes library -- need to put it on my shuffle again. And Mer and I were just talking about renting 50 First Dates again! I'm going to the little video store in Ashland this morning to get that and Happy Go Lucky. Have you seen that? Like it?

Belated Happy, Happy Birthday to Alec. Sounds like our kind of birthday! Alec is right between our Jesse, 16, and Owen, 15, age-wise. :) You know they are both big Wii and Warcraft guys as well.

Why can't you guys live next door?? Or ... wait ... next door to where we end up in Arkansas, I mean!
