St Nicholas Day

St. Nicholas day was simple but fun! We did stockings and spent the day playing new apps and watching movies. it was a much needed break in our house, even if Adam had to work.
Little Guy got 3 hard cover Magic Tree House books (fantastic find at the local thrift store), the Veggie Tales St. Nicholas movie for the kindle, and the Tizzy Seasons app. He was so excited he couldn't even talk. He just kept staring at all the goodies.

Later in the day I stumbled across an app called Go Go Kiddo. It was on sale for $.99 and so I got it, even though the file is huge. I am so happy I did! It is a fantastic app. There are game, jokes, videos, and even a mini piano. I also really liked that it was made by a couple who are also parents. It really got me thinking too. I would love to do a christian based app, because there are so few and most aren't done well. Seeing another couple making an app and of such high quality inspired me to start fleshing out my idea. We'll have to see where it leads, but for now it is certainly burning in the back of my mind!

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
