Grammy's Here! (and a slight correction...)

Grammy arrived safe and sound in Panama this afternoon, after traveling all night to come see us! We grabbed some dinner on the way home, and now she's in the guestroom trying to sleep despite the heat, loud music, and fireworks. Dad, thanks for letting us steal her from you for a few weeks!

I also wanted to take a second and clarify something. When my mom walked into my room, the first thing she said was... "THAT's your 'word wall' ?" She explained that based on the photo of my "word wall" from a previous post, that she (and the rest of the fam apparently) thought I was so lame that I covered my ENTIRE wall from floor to ceiling with posters of spanish verbs. Apparently the photo did not accurately show the perspective. So just to clarify that I'm not that lame, I've posted the original photo from my previous post, and a new one showing the correct perspective. (Maybe it's even more lame that I felt the need to make this correction?) I think I need to dig a little deeper for blog post inspiration... but anyways... here you go.


See? I'm only kinda lame!

Wow, it is amazing what photography can do...it had appeared as though you had MILLIONS of words up there (printed very small of course!) lol. Anyways, Mom- so glad you are there safe and sound- Linds, so glad she is there with you. She misses you so much. More pix of Anna please! Happy New Year! I think you should let Anna bang pots and pans at midnight!!

In case you were wondering, I think I like "Auntie Kiss"- do I get to pick my niece name? Explantion- Krista was always "Deesta" to Tim and I want the girls (and future) to be able to say something else...Ya, I know, it will probably end up as auntie Dees- but one can hope... And, Tim- I loved it when YOU said it- SHMORK!

hmm... sounds like you've given this name thing a lot of thought... so I won't mess with it. But I liked Auntie Kwista! Anywho, no pots and pans here in Panama... no mam... we bust out the big, dangerous, over the counter-Central American fireworks and explode the night sky with ear piercing booms. Good times. (Waaa! I want to go to bed!)

Hey Lindsey! Just popped over here and saw your green wall and think it is really cute! I like that paint color.

So my hubby told me for my Christmas present he would pay to get my personal blog beautified! I have no idea what I want though so I will be shopping and probably getting back with you.

Lindsey, I was playing around with the google settings and I see that under google options there is a translate feature.
http://translate.google.com/translate_t?hl=en#
It allows you to type a website...say your blog, into the box and it will translate the page into any language you want...so it takes you to your blog, but it would all be in Spanish. I have family in Italy, and I translated my blog into Italian, and it was very cool, to say the least. I wanted to pass this along to you. Maybe just another tool for you to use to learn the language

Haha! I was actually pretty impressed at your huge wall of verbs...do you remember my huge metabolic pathways chart? Ah, the joys of being a nerd!
